If we break down the meaning of Islam, then we need 6 English words to describe it:
Say: He is Allah the One and Only;
Allah is the eternal absolute;
He neither begets nor is begotten;
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.".
Surah (Chapter) 112
The miracle of the Quran is that will remain without changing until the day of judgment.
Allah says in the Quran: “ Verily we: It is we who have sent down the Dhikr (The Quran) and surely, we will guard it (from corruption)”
In the name of Allah Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Praise be to Allah the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds.
Most Gracious Most Merciful.
Master of the Day of Judgment.
Thee do we worship and Thee aid we seek.
Show us the straight path.
The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace Those whose (portion) is not wrath and who go not astray.
Surah (Chapter) 1
When my servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them);
I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me;
Let them also with a will listen to My call and believe in Me; that they may walk in the right way.

O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female and made you into nations and tribes that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
Let there be no compulsion in religion. Truth stands out clear from error; whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.(2:256)
Those who believe (in the Qur\'an) and those who follow the Jewish (Scriptures) and the Christians and the Sabians and who believe in Allah and the last day and work righteousness shall have their reward with their Lord; on them shall be no fear nor shall they grieve. 2:62

After praising & thanking GOD he said: "O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I know not whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefor listen to what I am saying to you very carefully & TAKE THESE WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.
O people, just as you regard this month, this city as sacred, so regard the life & property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. Beware of Satan, for the safety of your religion.
O people it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have rights over you. Remember that you have taken them as your waives only under ALLAH\'s trust & with His permission. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed & clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well & be kind to them for they are your partners & committed helpers.
O people, listen to me earnest, worship your LORD, do your five daily prayers, fast during the month of Ramadan, & give your wealth to Zakat(Charity). Perform Hajj (Pilgrimage) if you can afford to.
All mankind are from Adam & Eve, an Arab has no Superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has superiority over an Arab; ALSO a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety & good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to another Muslim & that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood.
Remember, one day you will appear before the GOD & answer for your deeds. So beware, do not stray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.
O people, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME & NO FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefor, O people, understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, The QURAN & my examples the Sunnah & if you follow these you will never go astray.
