Islam is the religion of peace and is Allah’s complete code of conduct. It is the religion of Allah, and Allah loves those who adhere to this sacred religion, his beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H.), and his holy book Al-Quran. In Quran Majeed Allah says, “Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.”. [03:19] Allah sent Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.), Al-Quran, and Islam for the guidance of humanity. To attain success in this life and the afterlife, one must follow Islamic principles. In Quran, Allah says, “And he found you lost, and guided you.” [93:7]. Islam is the only religion of Allah, and those who want to earn good deeds and raise their ranks in Allah’s eyes must follow this sacred religion and footsteps of the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.). Islam is the ultimate source of guidance. It has solutions to all problems and answers to questions that arise in people’s minds. Let’s explore some Islamic stories that teach us to handle the situation and how to have a firm belief in Allah.

Ibrahim and Fire

The story of Prophet Ibrahim and how he held steady in the face of adversity is one of the most influential Islamic stories. Disbelievers set fire to Prophet Ibrahim because he refused to believe in several Gods. They planned to burn him after stating that Allah was the only one worthy of worship. But this didn’t deter him, and he was tossed into the fire. But, by Allah’s grace, the fire subsided, and Prophet Ibrahim emerged unharmed. Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said, “When (Prophet) Ibrahim was thrown into the fire, he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did Messenger of Allah Muhammad (P.B.U.H.) when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them.” But this (warning) only increased him and the Muslims in Faith and said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us).” [Bhukari]

The Sad Camel

Another inspiring Islamic story teaches us to be kind to animals. When the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) entered the Ansar’s Garden the first time, he saw a camel. The camel’s eyes welled up with tears as he saw Allah’s beloved Prophet (P.B.U.H.). The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then approached the camel and wiped his temple. He fell silent at this point. The Prophet (P.B.U.H.) then inquired, “Who owns this camel?” “I am the master of this camel,” Ansar declared. “Don’t you fear Allah about this beast that Allah has given you in your possession?” the Holy Prophet asked. It has been complained to me that you keep it hungry and overburden it, leaving it exhausted. [Sunan Abi Daud]

The Soul-Stirring of Prophet Yunas

One of the aspiring moral stories from the Quran is of Prophet Yunas. The story teaches us that no situation is hopeless. There is a way out if you have a firm belief. The Prophet Yunas was sent to the people of Nineveh, who were idolaters. When Prophet began leading people to Allah’s path, everyone scorned him. He was discouraged by the refusal and departed the city without seeking Allah’s permission.

The ship on which Prophet Yunas was sailing started sinking, and he had to leave that ship. Then, with Allah’s command, a whale swallowed the Prophet, and he reached the bottom of the sea. In that darkness, he realized that Allah has control over things. Then after 1-2 days, the whale ejected Yunas back to shore and returned to the city of Nineveh. After reaching there, he realized that the city has inclined towards Allah. So, this moral story from Quran teaches us that we should never give up and believe Allah, as he is the only one who controls the whole world.

How to Say Thankyou

Allah has bestowed countless benefits onto us, and it is our responsibility to thank him for his bounties and mercy. By being grateful to the things Allah has gifted to us, we can purify our souls and can attain infinite advantages. Now the question arises of how to say thank you to the creator of the universe. The simple way to do so is to pray obligatory prayers and some extra Nafal. We can also express our gratitude to Allah by reciting the Quran, appealing for forgiveness, and frequently remembering him.

How to Forgive Someone

If someone did wrongdoing with you and after that asks for forgiveness, one must forgive him. Since Islam teaches us to forgive others’ mistakes wholeheartedly, we seek Allah’s forgiveness and expect him to pardon us when we sin. In the same way, we should be willing to forgive others’ mistakes. Even our Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) taught us to forgive others and forget their mistakes as he did in his life. One of the Islamic stories shed light on how the Prophet (P.B.U.H.) forgave people throughout his life. He pardoned all the disbelievers when he conquered Makkah, including Hind bint ‘Utbah, who chewed Prophet Hamza’s liver.

What are Good Deeds and Its Rewards

Enlisted below are some of the good deeds and their rewards.

  • Praying five times a day in the mosque is one of the good deeds. The one who goes to the mosque to perform his obligatory prayers will be rewarded paradise. Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said, “Whoever goes to the mosque in the morning and evening, Allah will prepare for him an honorable place in the Paradise every time he goes and comes” [Bhukari]
  • One of the good deeds is to ask forgiveness from Allah. Even Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) used to ask forgiveness seventy times a day.
  • One of the most exemplary deeds is to keep family ties strong. Those who cut links with family members will not be permitted to enter heaven.
  • One of the Nobel deeds is responding to Azaan. Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H.) said, “Say as they say (in Adhaan), and when you finish, ask and you will be given.” [Abu Daud]


Islam is the complete code of conduct of life. Islam teaches us peace, how to say thank you, and how to forgive others. The abovementioned moral stories from the Quran teach us to have a firm belief in Allah, his Prophet, and his sanctified book.
