In the name of Allah (God) the Most Merciful and the Most Beneficent. Our religious belief systems make us believe in One, being the Omnipotent, Who is the Creator and Protector of everything. We call that One, Allah, and Allah is Only One and Allah needs none/nothing. Allah is neither Father nor Son. None is equal to Allah. We are ordained to worship Allah Only and do good deeds for ourselves and others for which we will be rewarded by Allah, the Almighty. Allah appointed messengers/prophets (alaihimus-salaam) to teach us how to do good things and how to pray to Allah. 
Allah Almighty (God) created hazrat Aadam (alaihis-salaam), Adam, the first one of our fore-fathers, the first man and the first messenger/prophet who was assigned the duty to impart healthy education (HE) to the world thousands of years ago. Hazrat Hawwa (alaihas-salaam), the Eve, was also created to accompany hazrat Aadam (alaihis-salaam) in imparting systematically healthy education (SHE) to mankind/humanity in order to fulfill Allah's will. Allah Almighty appointed one hundred and twenty four thousand prophets/messengers from the sons, grand sons, great grand sons, great great grandsons and great great great... grand sons of hazrat Aadam (alaihis-salaam) and Hazrat Hawwa (alaihas-salaam) afterwards during various times in order to keep mankind/humanity on svirat almustaqeem (the right path) and teach mankind/humanity how to pray/do good deeds. Hazrat Ibrahim (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Ismail (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Ishaq (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Yaqoob (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Yousaf (alaihis-salaam), Hazrat Musa (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Dawood (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Esa (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Yahya (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Younas (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Shuab (alaihis-salaam) and hazrat Sheesh (alaihis-salaam) were the most prominent prophets among all. A number of holy Divine books and booklets were revealed to some of holy prophets like holy Bible to hazrat Esa (alaihis-salaam), holy Taurah to hazrat Musa (alaihis-salaam) and holy Zaboor to hazrat Dawood (alaihis-salaam). It is believed that Allah Almighty appointed hazrat Ibrahim (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Abraham, as holy prophet some four thousand years ago, who along with his son hazrat Ismail (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Ismael, constructed the holy Kaaba at Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Muslims all over the world say prayers facing towards holy Kaaba five times daily in formations as well as individualy.       
Hazrat Muhammad (pbuh) was appointed as the last prophet of Allah and the revelation of holy Quran was started in the lailat-ul-qadir, a night in odd dates of last ten days of Ramadan when he was forty and the religion of Islam (Peace) was accomplished on him as the perfect religion when he was 63. Islam means/advocates safety, security, progress, development, salvation,  devotion, continuity etc, as taught by the last holy prophet of Allah, Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) who was born at holy Makkah 53 years Before Hijrah. Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) was one of great great great...grand sons of hazrat Ibrahim (alaihis-salaam), hazrat Abraham.

In the last sermon, hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) elaborated the charter of human rights, which is universally accepted. Hazrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) appointed hazrat Ali (alaihis-salaam), who was his first paternal cousin and son in-law, as the first Imam-ul-Aulia Allah at Ghadeer, a place in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on 18th Zilhaj, 10 years After Hijrah. We must ensure the proper implementation of Islam.
