Islam is the Only True Religion

Proof

Allah revealed what means: The only religion accepted by Allah is Islam. (Al `Imran, 19).

Iman (Faith-Belief) defined:

Qur’an

The Messenger [Muhammad] believes (amana) in what was revealed to him from his Lord, as do the Believers (Mu’minun). All of them believe (amana) in Allah, His Angels, Sacred Books, and Messengers. We do not discriminate from among the Messengers of Allah.” (Al-Baqarah, 285)

Hadith

“Iman (Faith) is to believe in Allah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Judgment Day, and in Destiny—of both the good and the evil.”

Abu Hanifah said: “Islam and Iman are inseparable;they are like the front is to the back.” (Al-Fiqhul-Akbar)

Note: The person who does not have Iman (Belief) is not a Muslim, and the person who does not have Islam is not a Mu’min (Believer). The person who is not a Believer (Mu’min/Muslim) is a disbeliever, i.e., a kafir.

Ultimate Destination of the Kafir

“Verily, Allah has cursed the disbelievers (kafireena), and has prepared for them a flaming Fire (Hell) wherein they will abide forever.” (Al-Ahzab 33:64)

Certainly, those who disbelieve (kafaru) and die as disbelievers (kuffar), upon them is the curse of Allah, the angels, and the humans. They shall abide in Hell forever never having their torture lessened. (Al-Baqarah 2:161)

People of the Book (Ahlul-Kitab)

The phrase Ahlul-Kitab can refer to both the genuine followers of the previous Messengers, Musa and Jesus---OR---it can refer to those people who later CLAIMED to follow those Prophets, i.e., the Jews and Christians but they committed blasphemy (kufr).

1. Both the Jews and Christians ascribe to Allah non-befitting attributes, such as, exhaustion (refutation: Al-Baqarah 2:255), ignorance (Al-Anfal 8:17), having a child (Maryam 19:88-92; At-Tawbah 9:30; Yunus 10:68), being a triune entity (Al-Ma’idah 5:72), incarnation into a human (Al-Ma’idah 5:73) being in space and time (Ash-Shura 42:11).

2. The Jews and Christians do not make a pretense to believe in Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu `alayhi wasallam). To reject any Prophet of Allah is disbelief (An-Nisa’ 4:150-151). The Qur’an commands us to follow the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu `alayhi wasallam). The Qur’an says of those who do not believe in the Prophet Muhammad: “And whosoever does not believe in Allah and His Messenger - then indeed, Allah has prepared Hell for the disbelievers.” (Al-Fath, 13)

Also, the Prophet Muhammad said:

“There is no one of this Ummah [that is, from Prophet Muhammad’s prophetic era], whether he be a Jew or Christian, who hears of me and does not believe in me, except that he will an inhabitant of the Hellfire.”

Confusion Regarding Al-Baqarah 2:62

Al-Baqarah, 162 means:

“Certainly those who believe (amanu) and those of the Hadu and the Nasara and the Sabi’ina who believe in Allah, and the Judgment Day and do good deeds, they shall have reward from their Lord, they shall not fear nor shall they grieve.”(Al-Baqarah 2:62)

This Verse refers to those who held the correct belief in Allah, had Iman, and were genuine followers of their respective Prophets. This Verse does not refer to the Jews, Christians, and Sabeans who ascribe unbefitting attributes to Allah and reject the Divine Message of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu `alayhi wasallam).

The following Verse should make it all the more clear that Islam is the only religion of salvation. Allah revealed:


which means: “Whosoever elects a religion for himself other that Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and he will be among the losers in the Hereafter. (Al `Imran 3:85)

And Allah knows best.

What proof are you referring to? I don't see one.
