Sharia is important to Muslims in the sense that it is both universal and egalitarian (Exposito, 1988). Sharia is applicable for all mankind and does not differentiate between ethnicity, as mention earlier. Islamic Sharia concerns with what a Muslim should do and what a Muslim should not to, no matter where that Muslim stand on the social hierarchy.Sharia is also important to Muslims because it stresses the importance of unity. Exposito (1988) Explains it in the following way: “All Muslims, Arab and non-Arab, rich and poor, black and white, caliph or craftsman, male and female, are bound by Islamic law as members of a single, transnational community of brotherhood of believers”. The importance of unity is also an obligation for the Muslims and it prescribed in the Quran (Ali, 2003): “And hold fast, all together, by the Rope which Allah stretches out for you and be not divided among your selves; for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace you became brothers and you were on the brink of the Pit of Fire and He saved you from it.
The Islamic worldview instates a complete lifestyle of servitude and faith into its followers, thus granting both purpose and meaning as a Muslim's entire life is lived with the mission to submit to Allah's divine intendment therefore providing such regulation and guidance. (Al-Hariri Wendel, 2002 pg. 79). Submission to Allah's plan thus gives recognition to God's absolute authority, and reaches a conviction that God alone possesses all power. The natural effect of such a realisation is to devote one's worship and one's life absolutely to God alone.
Our prophet Muhammad (saw) is the ideal of every person and nation. The key of golden era was that they followed the Quran and sunnah.we should strictly follow the Islamic rules at every intendance to get success. There are two main sources of Islam.

But, I do believe that reading is the key to success, power and closer to Allah. Then, I remember what Allah said in the Quran verse Az-Zumar ayah 9: Say: “Are those equal, those who know and those who do not know? By reading this book, I also realize that all people including prophets do not have right or power to give hidayah or guidance to other people except for Allah. For example, Abu Talib loves and cares about Muhamm... ... middle of paper ... ...rybody despite their position or status will receive the punishment if he or she commits a wrongdoing like killing.

How to Get Discipline in Life Discipline is training that makes people more enthusiastic to obey or able to switch themselves, often in the form of rules, and sentences if these are broken or the behavior produced by this training. Islam is very peaceful Religion. It Gives Discipline and peace in every aspect of life. This discipline would also prevent the person from developing any sort of hesitation or doubt in relation to the orders of Allah Overvalued and High. Allah and His Prophet (P.B.U.H) The spirit and realism of the disciplines of Islam dictate that every separate must take the rules, rules and agreement of laws that the shadows, which are connected to both the separate and the society, from the Heavenly Source.
The Fiscal Rescript Of `Umar II From `Umar b. `Abd al `Azîz, Commander of the Faithful, to the governors: Verily God sent Muhammad "with the Guidance and the Religion of Truth that He should make it supreme over every form of religion, rage the associators of gods with God as they may." [Koran, 9:34] And verily the religion of God wherewith He sent Muhammad is His Book which He sent down upon him, that God should be obeyed therein and that His command should be followed and what He has forbidden be avoided, and that His limits should be upheld and His ordinances observed, that what He has made unlawful should be prohibited, and that His right should be confessed and that men should be ruled by what He has revealed therein. Wherefore whoso follows the guidance of God is guided aright, and whoso turns away from it "he hath erred from the even way." [Koran 2:108] And verity of obedience to God, as He has revealed in His Book, is that all men everywhere should be summoned to Islam and that the gate of emigration should be opened to all the people of Islam, that the alms and fifths should be applied according to the decree of God and His ordinances, and that men should seek their livelihood with their own possessions on land and sea, being neither hindered nor withheld.
From these aspects of faith one can seek justice and morality through God, the one who wills and acts justly. Spiritual morality and justice are filtered from God and should not be questioned. We should take what he gives us and use it responsibly. Doing what is right and just in the eyes of the lord will draw one closer to the almighty. Closeness to the Creator is the ultimate of all Muslims and with understanding and education all will see that this is the goal of all the Abraham faiths.
He has revealed his words through the prophet Muhammad which were recorded in the Quran. It is explicitly said in the Quran 2:2 that “no doubt is there about this Book: it is the guidance to the God-fearing.” Therefore, no one is allowed to question the words of God in the Quran based on the human standards. Instead, God will judge everyone based on His words. One can find out from reading the Quran that a devout Muslim should obey Allah in everything and implies the laws of God in his daily lives. The Quran 5:1-9 contains typical Muslim laws regarding food, sexual integrity, prayer, and other behaviors.
Islam teaches that everything in creation – plants, animals, mountains, hills, rivers, deserts, streams, oceans and people were created “Muslim”. Humans have the conscious choice through their ability to reason whether or not they chose to remain a Muslim or turn away from their original spiritual orientation (Klass 2002, 12-14). Anyone may become a Muslim, regardless of race, nationality, social or economic status, as long as they believe in the Shahadah. The Shahadah is the basic creed of Islam: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger”. The Muslims must also embrace a lifestyle in accord with the Islamic principles and values.
