The whole history of mankind has been a class struggle between the forces of light and darkness, good and evil, truth and wrong. Forces of good have fought to create an ideal society that is right and balanced inside and out. Unfortunately, mankind has often failed to find this balance, balance, and harmony between visibility and spirituality, both inside and outside. The idea that Islam has sought for the past 14 centuries is also a universal idea that is to create a just society. Indeed in this quest, the mission of the Prophet of Islam was very similar to all those prophets and wise men that came before him. Islam came as a guiding light in a dark world, a world that needed lightning to awaken from its deep sleep. He came to the age of ignorance, where the truth was denied, when from China and Japan to the East, to Morocco and Iceland to the west, the worship of a God was replaced by a half-lump sum. At that time there were false notions of superiority and egotism based on race, color, tribe, and ethnicity. Islam came to a nation boasting of the intensity of disruption and depravity in social and moral matters. Islam came historically after the fall of the Roman Empire and the ‘dark ages’. In the Persian Empire, there were many political disputes overpowering, and in the far Roman empire there were signs of decadence, and in Arabia, a land that was not supposed to reform the destiny of mankind, its citizens lacked compassion and moral values. In Arabia, in the co-operation of three major continents, Asia, Africa, and Europe, the 570th era (or the 53rd Muslim calendar) was born in Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), the prophet of Islam, a Mecca by the prominent family of the tribe Quraysh, a descendant of Babylonian Ibrahim and Hajj Egyptian. Here was revealed to the Prophet Qur’an in Arabic when he was 40 years old. Arriving in a world that had been spotted by lewdness and disintegration, Islam gave a special pattern, unrecognized throughout the history of mankind. Islam provided three basic elements, the belief in one God (in Allah), reforming oneself and society in general. Islam continued to be a religious engagement, a social, economic, and political program, but above all a tool for the “constant reformation” of society.
