Sayings of Prophet Muhammad
may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him

Islam

The Perfect Religion
Narrated Sayyidina 'Umar bin al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him). Once a Jew said to me, "O the chief of believers! There is a verse in your Holy Book that is read by all of you (Muslims), and had it been revealed to us, we would have taken that day (on which it was revealed) as a day of celebration." Sayyidina 'Umar bin al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him) asked, "Which is that verse?" The Jew replied,

"This day I have perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion." (5:3)

Sayyidina 'Umar (may Allah be pleased with him) replied, "No doubt, we know when and where this verse was revealed to the Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him). It was Friday and the Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) was standing at 'Arafat (i.e. the Day of Hajj)." (Bukhari)

The Religion of Truth
It has been narrated by Hadrat Ibn 'Abdullah (may Allah be pleased with him) who said: The Holy Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) entered Makkah. There were three hundred and sixty idols around the Ka'ba. He began to thrust them with his stick that was in his hand saying: "Truth has come and falsehood has vanished. Lo! Falsehood was destined to vanish"(17:81). Truth has arrived, and falsehood can niether create anything from the begining nor can it restore life. (Muslim)

Pure Islamic Nature (Al-Fitra)
Narrated Hadrat Abu Huraira (may Allah be pleased with him): Allah's Messenger (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) said, "No child is born except on Al-Fitra (Islam) and then his parents make him Jewish, Christian or Magian, as an animal produces a perfect young animal: do you see any part of his body amputated?" Then he recited

'...the nature framed byAllah, in which he has created man. There is no altering (the laws of) Allah's creation. That is the right religion, but most men know not.' (30:30) (Bukhari)

Muslims are the best nation
Narrated Hadrat Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri (may Allah be pleased with him): Allah's Messenger (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) said, "Nabi Nuh (Peace be upon him) will be brought (before Allah) on the Day of Resurrection, and will be asked, 'Did you convey the message of Allah?' He will reply, 'Yes, O Lord.' And then Sayyidina Nuh's nation will be asked, 'Did he (Sayyidina Nuh), convey Allah's message to you?' They will reply, 'No warner came to us.' Then Sayyidina Nuh (peace be upon him) will be asked, 'Who are your witnesses?' He will reply, '(My witnesses are Muhammad (peace be upon him) and his followers.' Thereupon you (Muslims) will be brought and you will bear witness." Then the Prophet (may Allah's blessings and peace be upon him) recited:-

'And thus we have made of you (Muslims) a just nation, that you might be witness over nations, and the Messenger a witness over you.' (2:143) (Bukhari)
