1There is no object of worship besides Allâh - the Almighty.

2Existence of angels
The Holy Qur’ân states: "Praise be to Allâh - originator of the heavens and earth, who made the angels, messengers with pairs of two, three, or four wings."
3Divine scripture
The Holy Qur’ân states:"It is He who has sent down to thee in truth, the book confirming what went before it. And He sent down the Torah and the Injeel before this, as a guide to mankind. And He (ultimately) sent the criterion (of Judgment between right and wrong)" i.e. Qur’ân.
The Holy Qur’ân states:"We (Muslims) believe in the Almighty and the revelation given to us and to Ibrahim, Is'hâq, Yaqûb and the tribes .... we make no distinction between any of them".
5The Last Day
The Holy Qur’ân states: "When the great overwhelming (event) comes to pass, man shall remember (all) that he strove for and hell-fire shall be placed in full view, for him who sees - then for such as had transgressed all bounds and had preferred the life of this world, the abode will be the fire of hell and for such as had entertained the fear of standing before the Lord, and had restrained their souls from lower desires, their abode will be the Garden of Bliss."
The Holy Qur’ân states: "No misfortune happens on earth or in your souls, but is recorded in a book (long) before We bring it into existence. That is truly easy for Allâh. In order that you may not despair over matters that miss you, nor become arrogant over favours bestowed upon you. For Allâh loveth not the vain-glorious."
7Life After Death
The Qur’ân states:"Those who reject the truth among the people of the Book and among the polytheist will be in the fire of hell to dwell therein forever. They are the worst of creatures. Those who have faith and do righteous deeds, they are the best of creatures - their reward is with Allâh - gardens of eternity beneath which rivers flow. They will dwell therein forever."

*The Holy Prophet (SAW) has stated: "If you guarantee me six things from your side, I will in return guarantee you Paradise.
Speak the truth whenever you talk.
Fulfill your promise when you make a pledge.
Discharge your trust when you are entrusted.
Protect your private parts (from abuse).

The Holy Qur’ân states:O children of Adam, do not let the devil dupe you as he did when he caused the eviction of your parents from Paradise, and the removal of their garments to expose their bodies. He and his tribe see you, while you do not see them. We appoint the devils as companions of those who do not believe.
The Holy Qur’ân states:"O mankind! We have created you from a single (pair) of a male and female and we have made you into nations and tribes, so that you may recognize each other. Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allâh is the most righteous."
