Now, here another question is arises.Since all the religions are asking us to worship Allah, do good deeds and stay away from sin then why we only follow Islam instead of any other? The reason is that Islam has a lot of characteristic than any other religion in the world. Islam tells us complete solution of all the problems that we are facing today. Like, now in most of the country of the world the major problem is poverty. The main reason of which is that there is a unequal distribution of wealth. In the same way, here also Islam takes step to handle the problem of poverty. Islam introduces a system of zakat. According to Quran "They ask you about giving: say, "The charity you give shall go to the parents, the relatives, the orphans, the poor, and the traveling alien." Any good you do, God is fully aware thereof." [AL-QURAN 2:215] In this system money circulate from rich to poor people. But in other religion there is no concept of zakat in their society with the passage of time rich people become more rich and poor become poorer. So this is another property of Islam which differentiates it from other religions. The major difference between Islam and other religions (Christian, Jews) is that the Islam has a complete book of Allah, word by word, there is no change even of a single word because Allah promised in Quran that he send this text and he himself save this text as mentioned in the Quran 3‘’We have, without doubt, sent down the Message; and We will assuredly guard it (from corruption)”. (Al-Hijr –Stone land-:9) .in another place in Quran Allah says [Absolutely, we have revealed the reminder, and, absolutely, we will preserve it. Quran 15:9] and Indeed, it is a glorious Quran. In a preserved master tablet” [Quran 85:21-22]In surah waqia Allah says about protection of Quran, “This is an honorable Quran. In a protected book. None can grasp it except the sincere. A revelation from the Lord of the universe.”[Quran 56:77-80]. This thing proved that Quran is completely protected. The other reason of protection of Quran is that the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) asked companion to write all the verses of Quran. All the verses written by companion under the guardian of holy prophet (S.A.W) so there was no chances of any mistake. When the whole Quran complete, there was numbers of parchments. In the reign of Hazrat Usman (R.A.) all the parchment were collected and transformed into a complete book. So at that time the whole words of Allah were reserved .now no one can replace any word from Quran Majeed because Quran is not only in written form but at the same time thousands of people memories it. Whenever anyone try to replace the words he will arrested easily. In this way Quran is protected forever. On the other hand, other religions are following different books. Their books are not in actual form. In their books a lot number of changes have been occurred. The main point of above discussion is that Islam has only one holy book which is sent by...
