That means Islam would not brook Zuhr or Asr Salat (prayers?) being reduced from the mandatory four units to one Rak’at or unit.
Nor would Islam allow the Salat (prayers?) to be read or performed in any language other than in original Arabic.
Nor would Islam allow the fast of the month of Ramadan to be cut down in length from dawn to lunch time.
It never did in the past, and it never could in future.
Thus, regardless of who follows or does not follow Islam, the Islamic teachings themselves will continue strong, firm and unaltered, as humanity’s most cherished and needed possession on earth.
That is why they have God Almighty’s eternal protection behind them.
God Almighty’s Commitment to Protect Islam
Islam is God’s gift to humanity and he has undertaken to protect and preserve it for all time so that humanity will have some place to turn to when it really has its back to the wall.
Islam is the special arrangement that God has put in place to be the guardian of true faith and practice on earth for all of humanity for all time to come. It is the standard against which all other human ideas and teachings are compared and validated.
And that is the story of the straight path of Islam in a nutshell: Islam came into this world to protect all other divine “religions,” as their adherents call them. As a result, what Islam seeks to do is to change the world while itself remaining pure and unchanging in its core beliefs, norms and practices.
This is one of the great miracles of Islam. For, no system of human invention can conceivably pass this test.
It is added proof, if I may use that expression, that Islam is indeed a divine and not a human system and that it came directly from God Almighty.
Many of us confuse reality with religion. That is why it is important for me to explain how Islam is not “religion” but reality.
