True Religion

What is right and what is the straight path?
This is the question which has always been arising in human minds. The answer to this question is the basis for human behavior. The Divinely revealed religions are aimed at showing the same straight path and blessed Prophets replied to this question with full explanation and detail.
This question is very important even today, especially in the present circumstances when non-Muslims, anti-religion elements, irreligious people, atheists and those who make a mockery of Islam all assume themselves to be on the straight path. This is also the claim made by the Muslims.
This article contains a brief and introductory reply to this question and the next article will comprise the characteristics of the truthful religion.We believe that Islam is the religion specified by Allah for the true guidance and success of mankind. The Almighty said “Indeed, the only (true) religion by Allah is Islam.” (Part 3, Surah Aal-e-‘Imran, Ayah 19)
Before the arrival of our Nabi ﷺ the religion of all Prophets was only Islam whose last and perfect picture and final interpretation is the religion brought by Muhammad Mustafa ﷺ. Allah has completed this religion for the entire mankind. Therefore, the Lord says: “This day, I have perfected for you, your religion and completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you, Islam as your religion.” (Part 6, Surah Al-Ma’idah, Ayah 3). Now salvation in the Hereafter depends upon embracing Islam and having a correct belief in the Prophethood and Risalah of  Muhammad ﷺ.
The Holly Quran says:
And anyone who desires a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him; and he is among the losers in the Hereafter. (Part 3, Surah Aal-e-Imran, Avah 85)
