The Islamic moral system stems from its primary creed of belief in One God as the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. The purpose of human life is to worship God. To lead this worldly life in harmony with the Divine Will is worship and thereby achieve peace in this world, and everlasting success in the life of the hereafter; the Glorious Qur’an and the Traditions of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) are the moral guides.
