Islam is a complete religion. It governs every aspect of our lives and provides guidance for every step and phase. The religion of Muhammad ﷺ the final religion and he is the final Prophet. Hence, the laws cited by Muhammad ﷺ will remain till the day of Qiyamah. The
scholars, particularly the jurists, worked tirelessly to preserve these laws for the ease of the ummah.
As such, the only task that remains for us now is to study, understand and live according to these laws in order to attain salvation in both this life and the next.
