The doctrine of sufficiency also means that no one should take away or add to scripture. In fact there is even a curse for doing so in Revelation 22:18-19. God has given us enough to point us to himself and to teach us how to have a right relationship with him. Scripture helps us hear God’s voice and live a life that is able to please him. The Bible’s sufficiency is why Martin Luther was able to cry out with confidence “sola Scriptura,” which mean “Scripture alone (53).” He understood the depths and riches of Scripture and how it had everything needed in order to know God and have salvation in

If someone supplicates to his lord, he is recognizing and acknowledging his dependent and faith in Allah and the power in dua’a . As it is stated in an authentic hadith that prophet said ‘‘Dua’a is the essence of worship.’’ (Musnad Ahmad and Tirmidhi). Also in another narration, the prophet said: ‘‘Qadar and dua’a encounter each other, and while the qadar is descending from the sky, dua’a will ascend–they encounter each other and which of them is stronger will
Along with this concept, is the idea portrayed in Ephesians 5:1 that believers are to be imitators of God, because they are His children. This calls for the action of honoring the heavenly Father as well.

It is rooted in his divine nature and is expressed based upon who he is rather than man’s needs, desires or what he deserves. God’s commitment to the people of Israel in spite of their unfaithfulness and rebellion demonstrates that hesed is an enduring quality of God.
The Lethal Impact of Religion On Society “All the other religions essentially say, “This is what you have to do to be in right standing with God.” Jesus comes to earth and says, “This is what I’ve freely done for you to put you in right standing with God.” Religion says do.

Therefore, Allah SWT has commanded to enter absolutely into peace (Islam) and urged Muslims not to follow in the path of Satan because he is an absolute enemy to you (Holy Quran: Surat al-Baqara, 208). The commitment to justice in Islam is a fact which Allah SWT has frequently commanded and does not prohibit you from being good to those who have not fought you in the religion or driven you from your homes and you are asked to be just towards them as Allah SWT feels affection for those who are just (Al-Quran,:Surat al-Mumtahana, 8). Thus, righteousness is the prime agenda that Al-Quran projects.
