In this book, faith-related issues are explained in the light of Qur'anic verses, and people are invited to learn Allah's words and to live by them.
Muslim is actually the name Allah gives to those who adhere to His religion. The basic attribute, referred to in the Quran, that distinguishes Muslims from other people is their awareness of Allah’s infinite might.
Grasping Allah’s might is not only a matter of verbal confirmation. Believers are those who recognize Allah’s existence and His greatness, are steadfast in their duty to him and re-orient all their deeds and conduct in the light of this reality which has become apparent to them. This book provides an explicit picture of a believer devoted to Allah as described in the Quran.
It must be remembered that Paradise is the abode of those who believe with certainty in Allah and the hereafter and then strive with all due striving in the way of Allah. The end of those who worship Allah right on the fringe of true faith and place their trivial interest on the same footing as the pleasure of Allah is described thus in the Quran:
Among the people there are some who profess to serve Allah but who stand on the very fringe of good faith. If good befalls them, they are content, but if an ordeal befalls them, they revert to their former ways, losing both this world and the hereafter. That way true perdition lies.

Life in the Society of Ignorance
The Eternal Abode of those who have taken Deities other than Allah: Hell
The Eternal Abode of Those who Seek
Only the Approval of Allah: Paradise
