Here is a quick introduction to Islam (charts, flyers and articles)
People cannot give respect or honor -- only Allah can grant peace, love, contentment of heart, a blessed life in this world and in Jannah for true believers. Difficulties and trials can become a means of raising our status and earn countless reward.
The biggest sin is Shirk which leads to hellfire in the life hereafter. That is why the Prophets made so much effort so that each everyone realizes the purpose of life, gets an opportunity to make Taubah. The pious belivers in the Ummah also made an effort so that their families and neighbors can discover the sweetness of Islam. In this effort, a believer is steadfast, forgiving, patient, trustworthy, kind and caring.
