        The chief characteristic of Islam is that it makes no distinction between the spiritual and the secular in life. Its aim is to shape both individual lives as well as society as a whole in ways that will ensure that the Kingdom of Allah may really be established on earth and that peace, contentment and well-being may fill the world. The Islamic way of life is thus based on a unique concept of manís place in the universe. Read more at The Islamic Concept of Life

The foundations of the social system of Islam rest on the belief that all human beings are equal and constitute one single fraternity.

A moral sense is inborn in man and, through the ages, it has served as the common manís standard of moral behavior, approving certain qualities and condemning others. While this instinctive faculty may vary from person to person, human conscience has consistently declared certain moral qualities to be good and others to be bad.

What is the spiritual path in Islam and what is its place in the life as a whole?

If the family is the basis of the society, and the basis of the family is the division of labor between husband and wife, and the upbringing of children is the most important function of the family, then such a society is indeed civilized.

Islam recognizes family as a basic social unit. Along with the husband-wife relationship the parent-child relationship is the most important one.

     Alcohol is a leading cause of death and serious injuries in traffic accidents. Islam forbids all intoxicants including beer and wine. It is unbecoming of a religious person to drink. Don't drink! 

Sexual promiscuity and homosexuality are crimes in the sight of God.

Lottery and all other forms of gambling, including video poker are forbidden by God. Powerball is Fireball!
