Islam is a Commercial Entity

1.) IF YOU BELONG TO THE COMMERCE OF ALLAH, YOU WILL BE SAVED FROM HELL

[Quran 61:10] O You who believe! Shall I guide you to a commerce that will save you from a painful torment

[Quran 35:29] Surely (the ones) who recite the Book of Allah, and keep up the prayer, and expend of what We have provided them, secretly and in public, hope for a commerce that will never be futile.

2.) ALLAH WILL FORGIVE YOUR SINS, DOUBLE YOUR MONEY, AND GIVE A JANNAHL REWARD IF YOU LOAN TO HIM. PLUS, HE WILL BE THANKFUL TO YOU FOREVER 

[Quran 2:245] Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He may multiply it for him many times over? And it is Allah who withholds and grants abundance, and to Him you will be returned.

[Quran 57:11] Who is it that would loan Allah a goodly loan so He will multiply it for him and he will have a noble reward?

[Quran 57:18] Verily, those who give Sadaqat (i.e. Zakat and alms, etc.), men and women, and lend to Allah a goodly loan, it shall be increased manifold (to their credit), and theirs shall be an honourable good reward (i.e. Paradise). 

[Quran 64:17] In case you lend to Allah a fair loan, He will double it for you, and will forgive you; and Allah is Ever-Thankful, Ever-Forbearing, 

3. ALLAH DEMANDED PRIVATE CONSULTATION FEES AND ALMS-TAX FROM MUSLIMS FOR HIS PROPHET

[Quran 58:12] O believers! When you consult the Messenger privately, give something in charity before your consultation. That is better and purer for you. But if you lack the means, then Allah is truly All-Forgiving, Most Merciful.

[Quran 58:13] Are you afraid of spending in charity before your private consultations with him? Since you are unable to do so, and Allah has turned to you in mercy, then continue to establish prayer, pay alms-tax, and obey Allah and His Messenger. And Allah is All-Aware of what you do.

4.) ALLAH IMPOSE SUBMISSION TAXES (JIZYA) ON THE PEOPLE OF THE BOOK (JEWS AND CHRISTIANS), PLUS THEIR WILLING SUBMISSION TO THE MUSLIMS AND FEELING SUBDUED

[Quran 9:29] Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

5.) ALLAH DEMANDED THE MUSLIMS TO SPEND THEIR WEALTH FOR HIS CAUSE 

[Quran 2:195] And spend in the Cause of Allah and do not throw yourselves into destruction (by not spending your wealth in the Cause of Allah), and do good. Truly, Allah loves Al-Muhsinun (the good-doers).

[Quran 2:262] Those who spend their wealth in the Cause of Allah, and do not follow up their gifts with reminders of their generosity or with injury, their reward is with their Lord. On them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve.

6. MUHAMMAD DEMANDED THAT ONE-FIFTH (20%) OF THE BOOTY SEIZED BY MUSLIMS IS FOR HIM AND ALLAH  

[Sahih Muslim 1756] It has been narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah said: If you come to a township (which has surrendered without a formal war) and stay therein, you have a share (that will be in the form of an award) in (the properties obtained from) it. If a township disobeys Allah and His Messenger (and actually fights against the Muslims) one-fifth of the booty seized therefrom is for Allah and His Apostle and the rest is for you.

[Sahih al-Bukhari 7556] Narrated Ibn `Abbas: The delegates of `Abdul Qais came to Allah’s Messenger and said, “The pagans of the tribe of Mudar intervene between you and us therefore we cannot come to you except in the Holy months. So please order us to do something good (Religious deeds) by which we may enter Paradise (by acting on them) and we may inform our people whom we have left behind to observe it.” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “I order you to do four things and forbid you from four things: I order you to believe in Allah. Do you know what is meant by belief in Allah? It is to testify that none has the right to be worshipped except Allah, to offer prayers perfectly, to give Zakat, and to give Al-Khumus (one-fifth of the war booty) (in Allah’s Cause). And I forbid you four things, (i.e., Do not drink alcoholic drinks) Ad-Dubba, An- Naqir, (pitched water skins), Az-Zuruf, Al-Muzaffat and Al–Hantam (names of utensils used for the preparation of alcoholic drinks).” (See Hadith No. 50, Vol. 1)

7. MUHAMMAD ORDERED THE PEOPLE TO GIVE ALMS TO HIM

[Sahih al-Bukhari 1462] Narrated Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri:  On `Id ul Fitr or `Id ul Adha Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) (p.b.u.h) went out to the Musalla. After finishing the prayer, he delivered the sermon and ordered the people to give alms. He said, “O people! Give alms.” . . . 

[Sahih al-Bukhari 5883] Narrated Ibn `Abbas: “The Prophet (ﷺ) offered a two-rak`at prayer on `Id day and he did not offer any (Nawafil prayer) before or after it. He then went towards the women, and Bilal was accompanying him, and ordered them to give alms. And so the women started giving their earrings (etc .).

He studied at the University of San Jose-Recoletos, took up Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering. The fear of death knocked on his mind when he aquired 3 lumps on his neck in 2010. He realized that the most important thing to a man is eternal life. He found out that the Bible is consistent in its teaching and backed up by spiritual and physical evidences. Today, he is happy knowing that there is a God who will receive him in the afterlife. And he wants to share this discovery to all people who are willing to accept this good news.
