Final 2020 3 rd. Mock (thank the stars)
2020.04.20 20:23 HawkFan907Final 2020 3 rd. Mock (thank the stars)
There are a lot of rumors flying around, and by the time I post this there will probably be more. Feel free to criticize the picks but the absolute WORST comments out there are "No way Team A passes on Player A there", or "Player A is so much better than Player B" If you criticize, back it up with some knowledge. Some thing like "Team A doesn't draft players like Player A because..." It makes us smarter. I also include Benjamin Robinson's Expected Draft Position (EDP). It's a conglomeration of all of the experts mock drafts. Very valuable resource this time of year. You'll probably see some unfamiliar names at the end of Rd. 3. I tried to mix things up a bit as that is the part of the draft where things get weird. RUMORS I INCLUDED - NYG want either Wirfs, Simmons, Brown - Andrew Thomas and CJ Henderson in Top 10 - Denzel Mims in Rd. 1; WR4 for some teams - Seahawks and 49ers trading down out of Rd. 1 - Falcons trying to move up for Kinlaw - Miami higher on Herbert than Tua - Falcons trading up for Kinlaw - Cleveland trading down for Ezra Cleveland - Mekhi Becton slipping to OT4 - Tua falling because of injuries - Reggie Robinson rising - NFL higher on AJ Terrell than media - K'Lavon Chaisson slipping to late Rd. 1 RUMORS I DID NOT INCLUDE - Titans trading out of RD. 1 and going with a RT - NYG considering taking Herbert - Chiefs trading up for Ruggs (lol) TRADES No future picks involved because this year is such a weird situation with Big Rona out and about that you don't sacrifice your future due to present unknowns. The score is calculated by using the Jimmy Johnson Trade chart. Typically, the team trading up has to give up slightly more value to make the cost of moving back worth it. CLE 1.10 (1300) - MIA 1.18, 2.39 (1410) Score - 1.08 Cleveland SF 1.13 (1150) - ATL 1.16, 3.78 (1200) 1.02 TB 1.14 (1100) - PHI 1.21, 2.53 (1170) 1.06 SF 1.16 (1000) - LV 1.19, 3.91 (1016) 1.02 NO 1.24 (740) - LAC 2.37, 3.71 (765) 1.03 SEA 1.27 (680) - CLE 2.39, 3.74 (730) 1.02 SF 1.31 (600) - IND 2.34, 4.122 (610) 1.02 CHI 2.50 (400) - SEA 2.59, 3.101 (406) 1.02 SEA 3.74 (220) - DAL 3.82, 5.164, 5.179 (233.2) 1.06 1.CIN - Joe Burrow QB LSU EDP: 1.1 DRAFT INVITE Obvi pick. Sneaky good O next year. 2. WAS - Chase Young DE Ohio St. EDP: 2.1 DRAFT INVITE Who you going to double team? Like the DL equivalent of the Warriors adding Durant. 3. DET - Jeff Okudah CB Ohio St. EDP: 4.4 DRAFT INVITE Nah Miami, don't trade up. No one has the balls to trade up for an injured QB. Detroit lands a huge stud. 4. NYG - Tristan Wirfs OT Iowa EDP: 7 DRAFT INVITE I'm worried Gettleman will forget to blur his background on Zoom and you will get a glimpse of not only his draft board, but his Lizzo posters as well. I know that Simmons seems to be the rumor of the day, but Gettleman likes his big boyz. OT is also their biggest need. 5. MIA - Justin Herbert QB Oregon EDP 7.1 DRAFT INVITE Tua stans hate me but this is the rumor right now. Last year no one thought Jones would go at six, but alas.... 6. LAC - Andrew Thomas OT Georgia EDP: 12.5 DRAFT INVITE Solid all around LT prospect. High floor. Imagine Okung, now imagine him healthy and in his prime. Rumors and fit give me lots of confidence in this pick. 7. CAR - Isaiah Simmons LB Clemson EDP: 5.6 DRAFT INVITE Their D needs work, and the Taysom Hill (lol) of the defense is ready to make plays err'where 8. ARI - Derrick Brown DT Auburn EDP: 8.7 DRAFT INVITE Game wrecker. Imagine Chandler Jones sack numbers with Brown clogging up and pressuring from the middle. 9. JAX - CJ Henderson CB Florida EDP: 14.5 DRAFT INVITE A small reach, but a local kid fills their biggest hole. Rumor mill seems to agree. 10. MIA (TRADE) - Jedrick Wills OT Alabama EDP: 9.3 DRAFT INVITE Trade up!!!! Move to get a legit OT. At worst is a Pro Bowl guard. 11. NYJ - Mekhi Becton OT Louisville EDP: 9 DRAFT INVITE I'm not as high on him as others, but he fills their biggest need. How long until Gase gets fired? 12. LV - Jerry Jeudy WR Alabama EDP: 12.6 DRAFT INVITE Who needs Amari cooper, when you can get a better version of him on a rookie deal? 13. ATL (TRADE) Javon Kinlaw DT South Carolina EDP: 13.8 DRAFT INVITE Trade Up!!! The rumor comes to fruition and they grab Kinlaw. 14. PHI (TRADE) - CeeDee Lamb WR Oklahoma EDP: 12.8 DRAFT INVITE Trade up!!! A hefty price, but this is the year to do it (u know, cuz Rona). Perfect piece for that offense. 15. DEN - Henry Ruggs WR Alabama EDP: 13.7 DRAFT INVITE WRs are pushed down and Denver comes away with the one who fits their offense the best. 16. LV (TRADE) - Tua Tagovailoa QB Alabam EDP: 4.4 DRAFT INVITE :( He drops only because of injury concerns. Chargers could snag him up, but find a plug and play starter with Thomas. Raiders move up a few spots and grab their QB of the future. 17. DAL - AJ Terrell CB Clemson EDP: 30.3 DRAFT INVITE NFL seems higher on him than the media, but they are coming around now. 18. CLE (TRADE) - Ezra Cleveland OT Boise St. EDP: 42.1 DRAFT INVITE Trade Down!! Reach Alert!!! Remember, analytics are back in the building and this guy rates as an extremely athletic player. Another rumor comes true. 19. SF (TRADE) - Denzel Mims WR Baylor EDP: 25.1 DRAFT INVITE The NFL loves him and he has the speed to play in this O. 20. JAX - Xavier McKinney FS Alabama EDP 23.2 DRAFT INVITE Here's a safety. They need help. Remember, tanking teams always build their defense first. 21. TB (TRADE) - Austin Jackson OT USC EDP 28.6 DRAFT INVITE They get a great 2nd round pick once all top tier O lineman are gone. Jackson has the tools to be great. Worst case scenario, but at least they grab some more picks. 22. MIN - Justin Jefferson WR LSU EDP: 20.6 DRAFT INVITE Diggs replacement. Good luck guarding him and Thielen. 23. NE - Cesar Ruiz IOL Michigan EDP: 30.1 DRAFT INVITE Best IOL in the draft. Belichek zigs when others zag. 24. LAC (TRADE) - Jordan Love QB Utah State EDP: 22.5 DRAFT INVITE Trade Up!!! They find a willing trade partner who needs picks. Love can sit behind Taylor. They get a great QB and a top OT. 25. MIN - Noah Igbinoghene CB Auburn EDP: 42.1 DRAFT INVITE Why him? IDK I liked his tape. 26. MIA - K'Lavon Chaisson DE LSU EDP: 18.4 DRAFT INVITE Why do I have him here? Pass Rush Win Percentage. It is abysmal. He is "toolsy" but he didn't produce. Screams Dion Jordan or Barkevious Mingo to me instead of a developmental star. 27. CLE (TRADE) - Antoine Winfield Jr. FS Minnesota EDP: 39.9 DRAFT INVITE Trade Up!!!! Analytics strike again! Move him to any S position or NCB and he will thrive. 28. BAL - Kenneth Murray OLB Oklahoma EDP: 24.2 DRAFT INVITE LB2 falls right into their lap. Leadership abilities not seen since Ray Lewis. Interviews alone could land him 10 spots earlier. Sometimes plays blind. 29. TEN - AJ Epenesa DE Iowa EDP: 28.3 DRAFT INVITE Some people love him. I don't. Good production, poor combine. But on a line where he can be an interior rusher on third down, it is a great fit. 30. GB - Jalen Reagor WR TCU EDP: 35.4 DRAFT INVITE They should take a WR in the first rd. this year and blow everyone's pants clean off. Compliments Adams well and is terrific after the catch. Also, can return. 31. IND (TRADE) - Michael Pittman WR USC EDP: 64.4 DRAFT INVITE Pittman in Rd. 1? Not a lot of mocks have this, but they should. He is right in that Jefferson, Higgins, Mims tier. Seems like a Colts type pick. 32. KC - Kristian Fulton CB LSU EDP: 24.2 DRAFT INVITE This should be his range. Has flashes of greatness and lousiness. 33. CIN - Josh Jones OT Houston EDP: 23.1 DRAFT INVITE Solid OT pickup right here. He can grow together with Burrow. 34. SF (TRADE) - Trevon Diggs CB Alabama EDP: 30.2 Could he be the next Sherm? This is what roster mirroring looks like. 35. DET - Zack Baun DE Wisconsin EDP: 31.3 No Draft Invite is concerning, but the potential is there. 36. NYG - Yetur Gross-Matos DE Penn St. EDP: 26.9 DRAFT INVITE The league seems lower than the media on him. Weak DE class overall. Nothing against him though. 37. NO (TRADE) - Patrick Queen LB LSU EDP: 25.1 DRAFT INVITE Trade back and STILL landing the player they probably would have picked with 24? Karma is finally helping for once. 38. CAR - Jaylon Johnson CB Utah EDP: 39 DRAFT INVITE Talent all around, but injuries this year introduce unknowns. Not in "win now" mode so they make this based on upside. 39. SEA (TRADE) - Joshua Uche LB/DE Michigan EDP: 68.9 DRAFT INVITE Reach Alert!!! They are big on pass rush win percentage and he excels here. Also has the arm length they require. And they love Michigan prospects. 40. HOU - Marlon Davidson DE Auburn EDP: 53.6 Fits their mold of D Lineman. That's my analysis. 41. CLE - Julian Okwara DE Notre Dame EDP: 60.8 DRAFT INVITE Pass rush ability. Great pass rush win percentage. Knows how to win. Some injury concerns. 42. JAX - Isaiah Wilson OT Georgia EDP: 47.3 Big boi who will solidify one of their OT spots. Could probably play either side. IDK, I'm not an expert. Start him on the right side right away. Was listed as a need on multiple sites. 43. CHI - Jeremy Chinn S Southern Illinois EDP: 43.5 Small school no one has heard of? Check. Freak athlete? Check. This Pace pick might actually work out. I'd take him in the first if I could. 44. IND - Jake Fromm QB Georgia DRAFT INVITE Reach Alert!!! Too Early? Football IQ is through the roof, and seems like the kind of guy that Reich would like. 45. TB - D'Andre Swift RB Georgia EDP: 33.2 DRAFT INVITE "Man this guy must hate RBs" Yeah I do. He could be fun in Tompa Bay. 46. DEN - Lloyd Cushenberry OC LSU EDP: 51.9 DRAFT INVITE 2nd best IOL in this class. Solid player. 47. ATL - Jeff Gladney CB TCU EDP: 30 They address their largest need here with a great pickup. 48. NYJ - Tee Higgins WR Clemson EDP: 32.1 DRAFT INVITE Higgins has taken a big hit since the combine. The Jets get Darnold a weapon. 49. PIT - Ross Blacklock DT TCU EDP: 33.9 DRAFT INVITE They need to replace Hargreave and they do here. 50. SEA (TRADE) - Justin Madubuike DT Texas A&M EDP: 51.6 DRAFT INVITE Trade Up!!! They grab an athletic D Lineman who will slot in beautifully next to Reed. 51. DAL - Grant Delpit S LSU EDP: 33.3 DRAFT INVITE What a fall. Top 10 lock at the beginning of the season to outside the top 50. You got to feel for the guy. 52. LAR - Jonathan Taylor RB Wisconsin EDP: 37 DRAFT INVITE To replace a broken down Gurley with a blue chip talent like Taylor is insane. Fumble issues are his only concern. 53. TB (TRADE) - Kyler Dugger S Lenoir Rhyne EDP: 56.4 They needed safety help and grab a small school steal in Dugger 54. BUF - Curtis Weaver DE Boise St. EDP: 67.7 Absolutely dominant pass rusher in college, but is such a weird prospect overall. Buffalo will make us of him. 55. BAL - Laviska Shenault WR Colorado EDP: 37.1 DRAFT INVITE This is a crazy steal, but could also flame out spectacularly. Such a weird year for prospects with injuries. 56. MIA - Clyde Edwards-Helaire RB LSU EDP: 57.7 Clyde the Glide lands with the Dolphins. Will be a game changer. 57. LAR - Prince Tega Wanogho OT Auburn EDP: 63.8 DRAFT INVITE Injury prone but uber talented. Can learn from Whitworth. 58. MIN - John Simpson G Clemson EDP: 93.9 Reach Alert!!! Great tester, and has good film. I'm much higher on him than most. 59. CHI (TRADE) - Damon Arnette CB Ohio St. EDP: 51.7 After a trade back with Seattle, they land another piece to fix that secondary. 60. BAL - Bradlee Anae DE Utah EDP: 89 Reach Alert!!! Teams are all over the map on him. Technically sound and relentless, but not athletic. Ravens take a shot on him with their crazy blitz packages 61. TEN - Brandon Aiyuk WR Arizona St. EDP: 37.8 DRAFT INVITE Steal Alert!!! Let Tanehill Cook. 62. GB - Willie Gay Jr. LB Miss. St. EDP: 83.5 Some red flags (cheating on test, punching QB in lockerroom) but needs to be in the conversation with Murray and Queen for LB2 (talent only) 63. KC - Jordyn Brooks LB Texas Tech EDP: 74.6 They need speed in a bad way and Brooks can fly. 64. SEA - Robert Hunt OT Louisiana EDP: 68.3 Injuries could cause a fall, but he is as talented as any lineman outside of the Big 4. If healthy, could start over Shell. 65. CIN - KJ Hamler WR Penn St. EDP: 56.6 Extremely dynamic receiver in the John Ross mold. Drops because of his drops. 66. WAS - Chase Claypool WR Notre Dame EDP: 68.8 DRAFT INVITE No more Jordan Reed or Vernon Davis. A young QBs best friend is his TE (or in this case WTE combo) . 67. DET - Lucas Niang OT TCU EDP: 68.2 Such good tape in 2018 and played hurt in 2019. Will be a steal if healthy. 68. NYJ - Terrell Lewis DE Alabama EDP: 47 DRAFT INVITE Steal Alert!!! Injuries push him down the board. Has everything you want but in a year where you can't get solid medicals... yikes. 69. CAR - Neville Gallimore DT Oklahoma EDP: 48 DRAFT INVITE Steal Alert!!! Crazy athletic, but is he disciplined enough to make a leap? This is CAR arguably biggest need and they get a potential stud. 70. MIA - Ashtyn Davis S Cal EDP: 72.6 A safety has to fall, and Davis is the choice. Flashes first rd. talent, but makes fifth rd. mistakes 71. NO - Bryce Hall CB Virginia EDP: 69.1 Big, if healthy 72. ARI - Matt Peart OT UConn EDP 81 Uber Athletic OT could develop into a legit starter in 2-3 years. 73. JAX - Jacob Eason QB Washington EDP: 60 DRAFT INVITE Ahhh yes. Push Minshew some. Could be a QB of the future if he plays his cards right. 74. DAL (TRADE) - Raekwon Davis DT Alabama EDP: 70.7 Such good tape early on in his career. 75. IND - Adam Trautman TE Dayton EDP: 86.4 Solid blocker, great short area quickness. They need some more weapons on O. Why not Kmet? Idk. 76. TB - Jordan Elliot DT Mizzou EDP: 73.1 Raw, but flashes excellence. Perfect pair with Vita. 77. DEN - Ben Bartch OT St. John's EDP: 99.7 Uber athletic raw tackle who could learn behind Bolles for a year, as long as he doesn't pick up the ability to hold. 78. SF (TRADE) - Jonah Jackson G Ohio St. EDP: 89.7 Solid all-around guard. Mediocre testing numbers scare off some teams. 79. NYJ - Cameron Dantzler CB Miss. St. EDP: 69 You see his Pro Day???? 80. LV - K'Von Wallace S Clemson EDP: 122 Reach Alert!!! Mayock <3 Clemson 81. LV - Reggie Robinson CB Tulsa EDP: 139 A true wildcard in this draft. Could have a James Bradbury type rise into late Rd. 2 or go in Rd. 6. 82. SEA (TRADE) - JK Dobbins RB Ohio St. EDP: 49.3 DRAFT INVITE Seahawks Twitter would lose it. Yes I hate RBs. 83. DEN - Akeem Davis-Gaither LB Appalachain St. EDP: 89.7 More speed on that D 84. LAR - Jabari Zuniga DE Florida EDP: 89.9 Steal this late 85. DET - Jason Strowbridge DT UNC EDP: 136.3 Reach Alert!!! Inside out rushing ability 86. BUF - Saadiq Charles OT LSU EDP: 122.2 Reach Alert!!! Red Flags but athleticism for days. Train him up for a year and you have a solid starter. 87. NE - Cole Kmet TE Notre Dame EDP: 56.7 DRAFT INVITE Poor TE class, but they could develop Kmet into something awesome. 88. NO - Van Jefferson WR Florida EDP: 107 Thomas, Sanders, and Jefferson with Brees? Unstoppable. 89. MIN - Amik Robertson NCB Louisiana Tech EDP: 116 Reach Alert!!! Zimmer loves him some CBs 90. HOU - Bryan Edwards WR South Carolina EDP: 101.6 If his injuties heal, this will be a steal that will compliment their current corps 91. SF (TRADE) - Davon Hamilton DT Ohio St. EDP: 90.2 The rich get richer. 92. BAL - Matt Hennessy IOL Temple EDP: 63.4 Awesome center that falls a bunch for no reason. Probs a medical reason no one knows about. 93. TEN - Leki Fotu DT Utah EDP: 108.4 Beef. Fits extremely well next to Simmons. 94. GB - Cameron Clark OT Charlotte EDP: 201.7 Big reach, but much better than people give him credit for. Shined against Clemson. 95. DEN - Michael Ojemudia CB Iowa EDP: 128.7 New age OCB. Long and with ball skills, but still raw. 96. KC - Hakeem Adeniji IOL Kansas EDP: 133 Reach Alert!!! Also really high on him. Kick him inside to guard and he will improve his game, and still have that versitality. 97. CLE - Ben Bredeson IOL Michigan EDP: 105.8 More competition inside at G. 98. NE - Jonathan Greenard DE Florida EDP: 78.9 Steal Alert!!! More EDGE depth 99. NYG - Terrell Burgess S Utah EDP: 112.9 FS and Nickel DB. Might be a steal going this late. 100. NE - Logan Wilson LB Wyoming EDP: 115.3 He's good, and rumor has it the NFL is much higher on him than the media. 101. CHI (TRADE) - Damien Lewis G LSU EDP: 90.6 Mauler. 102. PIT - Donovan Peoples-Jones WR Michigan EDP: 86.3 Some players just fall, but in this case, they fall into the perfect situation. 103. PHI - Troy Dye ILB Oregon EDP: 89.7 Some speed is needed in the front 7 104. LAR - Alex Highsmith DE Charlotte EDP: 133.4 Reach Alert!!! Production is through the roof and tested just fine 105. MIN - Jack Driscoll OT Auburn EDP: 146 Reach Alert!!! Just an OT for some depth. Some people like him, I'm just meh 106. BAL - Thaddeus Moss TE LSU EDP: 122.4 DRAFT INVITE Hmmm a TE to Baltimore huh? Let Lamar cook.
Introduction Business or company valuation is a process and a set of procedures used to estimate the economic value of an owner’s interest in a business. Valuation is used by financial market participants to determine the price they are willing to pay or receive for an interest in the company or business. The rapid advancement in Blockchain technology opens a host of possibilities to build a comprehensive ﬁnancial services ecosystem in an open and transparent manner. Tapping into this technology, iP2PGlobal aims to introduce a global solution to provide aﬀordable and accessible ﬁnancing to borrowers and attractive risk-adjusted returns to lenders. iP2PGlobal plans to develop a peer-to-peer (“P2P”) ﬁnancing platform using smart contracts and blockchain technology called iP2PGlobal Personal Financing Platform. This Platform will bring together borrowers and lenders from all over the world and connects them on a single platform in a trusted, fast and easy manner. In this review we look at the key components of the iP2PGlobal Personal Financing Platform and the people behind the company to determine the company’s capabilities and capacity to weather the challenges of delivering its project, developing its business and in doing so hopefully provide some market guidance to investors and partners on a fair valuation of the TWQ Token. PEOPLE A. Management team Rashdan Ibrahim - Chief Executive Officer Rashdan has over 24 years of working & entrepreneurial experience, he has worked with household names like Petronas, Deutsche Bank, & Arab Real Estate Co. KSC, throughout South East Asia & the Middle East. Muhammad Radzi - Chief Operating Officer Radzi has over 27 years work and management experience in the consumer finance and factoring finance industries, he was also the co-founder of two Shariah-compliant factoring companies in Malaysia. Afdha Yusof - Chief Marketing Officer Afdha Yusof has over 15 years of experience in Human Resource and Talent Acquisition in some of the top MNC companies in Southeast Asia and Middle East. Derek Lee - Head of Business Development With over 31 years of working experience in banking treasury and factoring financing. He has worked with household names like DBS, Citibank & Deutsche Bank. Azli Noor - Head of Legal & Compliance Trained as a lawyer, Azli has over 25 years working experience of which 17 years was in investment banking and trusts industries. James Loy - Head of Credit Risk Management James has over 22 years of working experience of which 15 years was as an investment banker in one of the largest banks in Malaysia. ASSESSMENT: The management team of iP2PGlobal are predominantly from the banking and finance sector. A closer look at the key managers reveal that they are seasoned professionals in their fields with established track records in conventional banking and finance both in the debt capital and equity markets. The project that they are currently pursuing represents only a small taste of what the management team has experienced and is most likely capable of undertaking. It is quite likely that the team will be looking into migrating other financial products and solutions from the conventional market to the blockchain in the near future. This bodes well for the TWQ Token as its function as a utility token will not be limited to the Crypto Loan product but be expanded into other products and solutions which will invariably increase the demand for the TWQ token and thus apply upward pressure on the TWQ token price in the market. Unlike many projects that have come into the ICO/IEO market, iP2PGlobal has real people with qualifications, expertise, and experience in the field relevant to developing the P2P Loan Platform of this project. For new entrants and people from the conventional financial services sector who are just discovering the blockchain and crypto, it may provide some comfort to these new participants to see seasoned conventional financial professionals who have migrated to the crypto world ahead of them. It is encouraging and builds on the credibility as well as sends a signal to the conventional financial services sector that the blockchain and crypto is something they should not ignore. B. Advisors Dr Ahcene Lahsasna Currently the CEO of Salihin Advisory & he also sits in the shariah advisory committee for Standard Chartered Saadiq Bank & Re-takaful. Dr Ahcene has authored more than 20 books and is the recipient of the Global Business Leadership Award in Islamic Finance in 2017 & 2019.

He is the founding member of Qyrin Petroleum Technology. Abdul Rahman Ibrahim A computer science major, Abdul Rahman has worked in the animation and telecommunication industries household names such as Rhythm & Hues, Anima Vitae and Xoxzo (Japan). ASSESSMENT: iP2P Global has clearly stated that it will collaborate and work with partners who are subject matter experts (SME) in key areas where the management team believes it should leverage the best available technologies and practices in the market. There is no sense in reinventing the wheel when someone else has already established market acceptance and dominance. Additionally, for the iP2PGlobal Personal Financing Platform, being a Sharia compliant product and solution there are clear rules, regulation and requirements that need to be fulfilled in order to be properly recognized as Sharia compliant. As such, several members of the Advisory board are licensed and accredited by the relevant regulatory bodies responsible for Sharia compliance. The other Advisors on the board on the other hand come from industry and provide valuable experience and insights from outside the crypto market that could inject some real-life and real-world lessons learnt from various industry sectors. These Advisors serve as a check-and-balance to the management team and the TWQ project which will potentially improve the market acceptance and applicability of the TWQ project and other financial products and solutions which will be developed by iP2Pglobal following the successful delivery of the Crypto Loan platform. Besides providing oversight and industry input, the Advisors certainly will be involved in new product and solutions conceptualization which will ensure a steady pipeline of new crypto based financial products and solutions that will utilize the TWQ token. The board of Advisors of iP2Pglobal have a balanced mix of subject matter experts who should enhance the already strong team behind the project. C. Partners AbleAce Raakin Sdn.

This is a clear indication of iP2PGlobals’ seriousness and commitment to providing bona fide Sharia compliant products and solutions to the market and to Muslims worldwide. We have seen a few blockchain projects bandying Sharia products and solutions to investors, but ultimately most if not all did not provide any proof or clear framework for Sharia compliance. In the case of the TWQ, investors especially Muslims can be assured that the platform and the crypto loans are structured to comply with Sharia precepts. 2. PRODUCT & TECHNOLOGY The ﬁnancing products oﬀered over the platform is based on Sharia ﬁnance principles. Sharia ﬁnance principles mean prohibition of interest and usury, steering clear of uncertainty-based transaction, avoiding gambling and avoiding investments in the production and selling of impure goods and goods of no use or no value. Sharia ﬁnance principles also relates closely to the concept of ‘Ethical Finance’ that emphasise the values of fairness, equality and morality in ﬁnance. Three ﬁnancing products, an unsecured and a secured personal ﬁnancing products based on Tawarruq contracts and a gold pawnbroking product based on Ar Rahnu contract will initially be oﬀered. In the future, iP2PGlobal aims to add other ﬁnancing products based on other Sharia ﬁnancing contracts, such as Ijarah (leasing) and Musharakah (profit sharing) amongst others. The TWQ is an ERC20 token that confer the right to the token holder to submit an application for a personal ﬁnancing based on a Commodity Tawarruq Trading program through the iP2PGlobal platform and have it listed in the platform for prospective lenders to view and choose to ﬁnance. The TWQ Token is a pure utility token and does / will not provide any other rights and functions to its holders. The medium of ﬁnancing in the iP2PGlobal Platform will be in stable coins that pegged its value to ﬂat currency. In its initial stage, the platform will be using PAX, TUSD and USDT in the future more stable coins will be accepted as the medium of ﬁnancing in the platform. ASSESSMENT: The TWQ project is built on a marriage of blockchain technology and peer-to-peer technologies, both of which are experiencing high growth and adoption in today’s digital world. Add to this the untapped and unfulfilled demand for Sharia compliant products and solutions not just in the crypto space but also in the conventional market, what we have in the iP2PGlobal platform is potentially an explosive or high growth business. The management team it appears has done a thorough study of the financial services market and the attempts by others to penetrate and introduce Sharia based products and solutions to the crypto market. Many have tried a blanket or shotgun approach hoping to capture overnight a piece of the Sharia market with a population of 2.18 billion Muslims worldwide. The evidence however seems to show that this strategy is ineffective and prone to many shortcomings. There are many critical issues which need close attention by project and solutions developers and providers in order to successfully encourage adoption and regular use of crypto based and peer-to-peer solutions. The blanket strategy does not work effectively in this situation. iP2PGlobal has chosen to develop a single product or solution to address a specific demand and need in the market — crypto loans — and has committed its whole roadmap over 24 months to ensure a world class and commercial grade platform is delivered to the market. The management team could have chosen to be overly ambitious or even greedy but instead they have forgone (for the moment) the larger market and opted to be focused on one segment to the benefit of users and investors. It appears that the management team foresight tells them that success with one product or solution is necessary first to solidify market credibility and commercial basis to develop other products and solutions as and when the crypto market evolves and when the critical demand for more financial services is in place. Unlike most blockchain projects we have seen, this project is very concentrated on doing and delivering one thing and doing it very well. This attitude by iP2PGlobal is admirable and lends a lot of confidence that the project is very likely to be completed and delivered to the market. The bull run of 2017 saw thousands of ICO’s raise funds based on frail and farfetched ideas, flimsy whitepapers, and aggressive marketing tactics compared to actual working products and a real market. Today the initial hype is over, but the utility of ICO’s and IEO’s still serves an important function. As the crypto market continues to develop, bad coins will cease to exist, while projects with real use cases will thrive. The iP2PGlobal lending platform is an example of a Bona Fide project raising funds through an exchange coin offering that has real-world use case and a real market, in addition to real people with qualifications, experience, and track record. 3. MARKET P2P is the practice of lending money to individuals or businesses through online services that match lenders with borrowers. P2P is a relatively new industry, with the 1st P2P lending platform only starting in 2005 in the United Kingdom. Prior to the introduction of P2P lending platforms, the main source of any ﬁnancing for individuals or companies was from traditional lenders such as banks and ﬁnance companies. The main reason why the P2P business model works, is because its operational expenses is lower when compared with traditional lenders. Technology plays a big part in bringing borrower and investors together ensuring that the main culprit of high costs i.e. branch infrastructure is made obsolete. These savings in operational expenses allow P2P players to under-cut traditional lender’s spread thus providing big savings to borrowers via lower interest rates and better returns for investors, compared to savings and investment products oﬀered by banks. Based on Industry Reports by Cambridge Centre for Alternative Finance, Global alternative ﬁnancing has been on a strong growth path over the past few years, registering US$419 billion in total in 2017 compared to only US$43.6 billion in 2014. Based on the 2016 total of US$289 billion raised, P2P lending made up the lion share with 55.8% coming from P2P consumer lending (US$161 billion), whilst P2P business lending and P2P real estate lending was at 23.85% and 2.96% respectively. The continued growth of P2P lending, in particular P2P consumer lending, which makes up the majority of the online alternative ﬁnance market especially in Asia Paciﬁc, Americas and Europe augurs well for the industry as more people accept the P2P lending model and start to branch out from traditional lenders like banks and ﬁnance companies. The global peer-to-peer lending market is expected to grow tremendously and post a compound annual growth rate of more than 53% by 2020 from 2015. Since the cryptocurrency lending market started in 2016, over US$4.7 billion loan volume has been originated, but the income generated is low at US$86 million or less than 2%, although the borrowing rate typically ranged from 6%-10% on an annual basis. iP2PGlobal Platform will open up ﬁnancing to a big Muslim population (estimated population of 2.18 billion), who wants to borrow and lend according to Sharia ﬁnance principles. However, although Sharia ﬁnancing products are sought after by Muslims, this does not preclude or should deter non-Muslims from tapping onto the platform, as the iP2PGlobal Platform is open to everybody regardless of their gender, race or religion. ASSESSMENT: The Global Peer to Peer (P2P) Lending market is categorized into consumer lending and business lending. The traditional P2P model generally exists on a large-scale mostly in developing regions. However, this is mainly due to minimum availability of modern technologies which makes companies adopt the P2P model. The industry is projected to reach USD 820.70 billion by 2025. The driving factors influencing the global peer to peer lending market demand are growing awareness among consumers, transparency in process, low-interest rates, process efficiency for easy loan distribution, and demand for loans by small & medium enterprises, real estate sector and other consumer loans. P2P Lending companies are investing in new technologies to make the process easier and efficient. For instance, Faircent has launched e-sign facility in collaboration with eMudhra to reduce the turnaround time for loan distribution by further reducing the human intervention in the process. In the year 2017, consumer lending dominated the overall peer to peer lending market by occupying a 72.2% share. P2P lending has provided easy access to loans due to which there is a rise in personal loans, home loans, student loans, and other consumer loans. However, business lending is also witnessing a significant growth owing to the growing number of small & medium businesses across the globe registering an exponential growth rate over the forecast period. Regionally the global peer to peer lending is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Central & South America, and Middle East & Africa. In 2017, Asia Pacific dominated the global P2P lending market of which China occupied a major share in this region. However, in recent years there has been an increasing number of P2P lending frauds in China due to which China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission has imposed stringent regulations to restrict P2P lending companies from committing crimes. This development is actually a positive indication as the fact that the regulators are paying attention means that the industry is significant to the economy. In Europe, Unite Kingdom dominated the P2P market by contributing more than an 82.3% market share. Zopa was founded in 2005, the first company to launch website for borrowing and lending services. After which many new companies were launched including funding circle and rate setter. The stringent regulations implemented by the Financial Conduct Authority has paved the way for the UK P2P lending market. Moreover, many start-ups are coming into the market as investments are increasingly by venture capitalist. The global P2P lending market is fragmented with many regional and international players across the globe. Here are some of the leading players of the global peer to peer lending market include Zopa, Prosper Marketplace, Lending Club, Funding Circle, Upstart, SoFi, RateSetter, China Rapid Finance, PPDAI Group, Funding Societies. It should be noted that one of the reasons for the fragmentation is due to the limitations and restrictions on Global Fiat Lending or cross-border fiat lending because of the different licensing and regulations in different countries. The iP2PGlobal Personal Financing Platform will be the first truly Global P2P lending platform as the platform is a CRYPTO LOAN platform and as it is not fiat lending, the platform solves the problems, limitations, and restrictions imposed by country specific regulations on cross-border currency transfelending, and fiat currency exchange fluctuations. In terms of market size, market segment growth, and trends in the financial services industry, the iP2PGlobal platform appears to be entering a position that has all the right ingredients for mass acceptance and adoption of the loan platform solution/service. 4. PROFORMA FINANCIALS IP2P GLOBAL PLATFORM 5 YEARS PRO-FORMA FINANCIALS The above proforma financials of the iP2PGlobal platform is prepared based on information and data provided by iP2PGlobal Ltd in its Whitepaper, and information and data available from reports in the public domain on the P2P Lending market, developments in the Fintech industry, and global trends in the financial services sector. Relevant and applicable growth rates of the P2P lending market and macroeconomic data on the funding-gap globally between the “banked” and “un-banked” market is also referenced and factored into the financial projections. Assumptions & Observations: The proforma financials rest on the latest public figures on the P2P Crypto Lending market, and for the 5-year forecast period, the historical industry CAGR was applied at a 50% discount, which implies that the growth will decelerate — this is a conservative position by iP2PGlobal (ii) At the end of the 5-year forecast period, iP2PGlobals’ share of the P2P Crypto Lending market is projected to reach a mere 1.56% which is very conservative given several unique features of the iP2PGlobal platform. (iii) The loan composition used in the forecast is constant at 20:80 between Unsecured and Secured Loans. A higher percentage of Unsecured Loans would yield higher revenue to the platform as the platform fee for unsecured loans is higher than for secured loans. (iv) Total borrowers using the iP2PGlobal platform over the 5-year period is 630,365 borrowers, borrowing a total US$194,667,762 assuming a fixed average loan per borrower of US$1,000. This US$1,000 amount may not be representative of what the platform will actually see as the is no limit on the loan amount that can be submitted. Assuming a low average loan amount discounts the forecast from potentially large loans from businesses and high-volume traders, who may also use the platform. (v) It should be noted that some P2P Lending platforms impose a minimum loan amount as high as US$30,000 whereas the iP2PGlobal platform has a much lower minimum loan amount of US$200 only (vi) Borrower growth and loan growth appear conservative by comparison to the historical CAGR of the market segment which ranges from 30–52%. (vii) Utilization of the TWQ Token starts at a conservative 4.86% of the theoretical total TWQ in Public hands but reaches a utilization of 38.96% by the end of the 5-year forecast period. 5) VALUATION & PRICING TWQ TOKEN FUTURE VALUATION & PRICING A. Average P/E Ratio for the Financial Services Industry Companies that operate within the industry include those focused on brokerage operations, conventional banking, asset management, as well as debt and credit services. Since the financial services industry plays an important role in the overall performance of the markets, investors should be concerned with the average P/E ratio of this sector. As of August 2018, the average P/E ratio of the financial services industry is 14.26. This metric includes the sector averages of specific financial service categories, including banks with a P/E ratio of 13.51, capital markets with a P/E ratio of 18.83, and insurance with a P/E ratio of 14.64. A smaller sector in the broader financial services category, thrifts and mortgage finance has the highest P/E at 32.17, while the lowest at this time is the mortgage REITs sector at 7.11. Because of the absence of historical price data, a test of reasonableness cannot be done for the TWQ Token thus the only guidance that is available to assess the forecasted TWQ Token price are industry averages of PE multiples of the financial services industry. The first year proforma PE ratio of the TWQ Token is forecasted at 16.04x which is in the range of PE multiples of companies in the financial services industry that ranges from 7.11x to a high of 32.17x. By the 5th year of the forecast period the PE ratio is forecasted at 20.13x which is slightly higher than the PE ratio for capital markets at 18.83x but still within the range of multiples for the industry as a whole. As depicted in Figure 1 above, the rate of change of the PE ratio curve is not as steep as the TWQ Price curve which indicates that the iP2PGlobal lending platform earnings are forecasted to increase at a higher rate. As stated in the above section on assumptions and observations, the slightly higher PE curve applied may be justified by the fact that the proforma financials do not factor in the untapped Sharia market and the potential 2.18 billion Muslim population. TWQ TOKEN FORECASTED PRICE & PE RATIO B. Market Capitalization When evaluating a token or coin, looking at Market Cap helps give some idea of the potential price performance in relation to the total crypto market capitalization and also similar tokens and coins. An examination of a tokens’ market cap also provides investors an objective tool in navigating through the hype and marketing which is so prevalent in the ICO/IEO scene. Market capitalization is a common metric for traditional securities and is now sparingly being applied in crypto. For the benefit of crypto investors, we look at the TWQ market cap in applying a conventional evaluation tool that is a measure of the value of a security. It is derived by multiplying the amount of outstanding stock shares by the current stock price. In crypto, it’s defined as the circulating supply of tokens multiplied by current price. If a coin has 1,000,000 tokens outstanding and is trading for US$1 a coin, it has a market cap of US$1,000,000. Stocks and bonds are regularly analysed with financial metrics and ratios. Measures like price-to-earnings ratio, earnings per share, the current ratio, earnings growth, and so on are used to examine stocks. In crypto, financial statements are mostly never published. A market cap is quick way to gauge a coin’s value — healthy market cap is indicative of a strong coin. When combined with other metrics, market cap gives investors more tools to arrive at an investment decision. The Market Cap of the iP2PGlobal platform in the first year is calculated as follows: Market Capitalization = TWQ Price x Circulating Supply of TWQ Tokens = US$0.57 x 50,000,000 = US$28,740,735 It should be noted that the market cap calculation used in the proforma is a 12-month average to smooth out price fluctuations during each proforma year. As can be seen from the formula above, the variable of significant importance is the TWQ Price, and going back to the section above on PE Ratio it has already been established that the proforma TWQ Token price is within the reasonable ranges of PE multiples for the financial services industry. FORECASTED TWQ MARKET CAPITALISATION C. Economics The visuals below essentially show the number of circulating TWQ net of reductions from defaulted loans, in comparison to the total value of TWQ staked on the iP2PGlobal lending platform over the 5-year forecast period. It is a simplistic measure nevertheless highlights an important characteristic of the TWQ Token and the implications on its price trajectory. FORECASTED TWQ TOKEN SUPPLY VS. VALUE STAKED What is clear from the chart above is the following: The supply of circulating TWQ reduces over time Value of TWQ staked is larger over time Given, Perennial reduction in the supply of circulating TWQ due to loan defaults Growth in the platform use and earnings will be reflected in a price increase of the TWQ Higher price of TWQ will reduce the number of TWQ needed for loan submission Thus, Although the amount of TWQ needed for a loan submission is less because the price has increased, the reducing supply of circulating TWQ combined with the price increase in TWQ will result in a net upward pressure on the TWQ price. This presumption is fundamentally correct as the increase in the utility of the TWQ will support the price of the TWQ which reasonableness has been established based on PE multiple price simulation using financial services industry averages. 6. OVERALL OUTLOOK & CONCLUSION Unlike investments through bank deposits, P2P platforms connect borrowers and lenders directly through the marketplace, thereby somewhat eliminating the role of middleman. This is what the iP2PGlobal Platform does. Traditionally, most investors are risk averse and rely more on bank fixed deposits (FDs) as the capital invested is not market-linked and is not exposed to short-term market volatility. However, things are now changing, as investors are not fearful of taking some calculated risks. The iP2PGlobal Platform offers investors/lenders this opportunity. As a result of the change in investment patterns, apart from savings accounts and bank FDs, P2P investment has been coming up as an alternative among the younger generation. By connecting the borrowers and lenders directly, P2P lending not only brings more transparency, but unlike in the case of banks, also provides opportunities for investors to choose the loans they want to fund, which is essentially what the iP2PGlobal Platform allows. Additionally, as the middleman (like banks in case of FDs) is eliminated, borrowers can negotiate a better cost of funds rate and investors can create their portfolio of loans as well on the basis of credit ratings and interest rates of borrowers, which may fetch higher returns for them. Before the introduction of P2P, the options to invest were either market-linked products like equity and mutual funds, which required the investor to have a decent knowledge about the market, or to park the money in banks which had lower returns. Now, with P2P lending, investors may also earn higher returns without having to worry much about the volatility of markets. P2P lending has become an alternative investment destination for those investors who wish to earn higher returns without facing short-term market risks. It is almost common knowledge now that millennial investors prefer data-backed investment options over the traditional options. As a result, P2P lending has become a go to option for the millennial individuals as P2P platforms use AI and Machine Learning to deploy the investor’s money to generate maximum returns. “P2P lending is still in the nascent stage and is expected to grow as there are huge opportunities, with the credit demand and supply gap — as per the estimates of the World Bank — being close to $380 billion’. One major risk for investors on p2p lending platforms is that the company running the platform becomes insolvent and is unable to continue to operate the marketplace. The importance of the financial health of a p2p lending company for assessing the overall risk is essential. More often than not, insolvency and business failures are due to people and management, and not the business or market itself. In the case of iP2PGlobal it is very clear and evident that the company and project is being developed and driven by real people with relevant qualifications, experience and track records. CEO of FinTech platform YouHodler stated that “the altcoin market cap is slipping, but it is far from being destroyed. We are amid a new altcoin rebirth. Many, once popular, altcoins will find it very hard to make a comeback to their all-time high, if at all. Yet, there are still many promising altcoins with real use cases and revenue generation models that will outline the new trajectory of the altcoin market”. In general, most subject matter experts conclude that the future of altcoins is still yet to be determined but will rely solely on a given project’s ability to provide firm use cases. The use case for the iP2PGlobal Platform is crystal clear from the onset — they are moving financial services from the conventional market to the Blockchain. Using altcoins as collateral for a crypto loan helps users utilize the value of their altcoins without having to sell. If the value of their altcoins increases during the loan term, then the users keep all the profits. If altcoins take a negative turn in the other direction, then users can take comfort since they already have the cash and did not lose any additional money. This feature or utility is often overlooked in its importance as the usual emphasis when people look at P2P lending platforms is on how much of a loan can be obtained and what the costs are. Most overlook the benefit or economic value of being able to get further leverage or utility from the altcoins which they have already expended real (fiat) currency to acquire. Perhaps with the growing understanding of P2P and Blockchain, these benefits will become more prevalent. We have all seen many companies with fantastic products, technology, ideas, and markets brimming with potential demand yet have fallen short of success. Many have come and gone, and many more will appear to take up the challenge of developing and establishing a commercially viable and sustainable business. The question that comes to the mind of many when we see so few successes of such great ideas and fantastic product and marketing strategies is — “What happened? Why did this company not make it?”. There is no shortage of analyst, consultants, and industry experts that regularly evaluate and review established companies and corporations especially listed companies. In these situations, the task of evaluation is focused more on how these companies are performing as compared to the market and competition. Established companies and businesses by definition are those who have succeeded. Evaluating private and early stage companies and businesses however requires a more dynamic as well as a rigorous thought process and evaluation framework. Oftentimes as these companies are early stage, the only “tangible” or real element that is available for analysis and evaluation are the people behind the company. History has also proven that success of many great companies and products are attributed to the founders and people behind the companies and the product. This review of iP2PGlobal Ltd and by extension the review of the TWQ Token has in some parts been detailed whereas in other parts general at best. This is a reflection of the absence of generally accepted and established methods for evaluation of crypto assets and the crypto market. The assessment has adopted fundamental as well as some technical analysis methods borrowed from mainstream. In areas where data and information are lacking, certain presumptions and extrapolations were made. One thing for certain however about the iP2PGlobal lending platform is that the company behind the project has real people with real experience and track record. Why this is important is because only real people with relevant experience can navigate the uncertainties and dynamic nature of the real world and real economy. If you are an investor, look at the next big ICO/IEO and try to sift through the hype and marketing, and see if you can find a real and solid team behind the project and solely base your decision to invest on the team and people developing the project. If you are a genuine investor and you struggle with this, then chances are what your instinct is telling you is correct. In the final analysis, any attempt to evaluate and assess the value of a business, company, stocks, token, and securities will always be incomplete. Having said this, some semblance of a proper and objective evaluation should bring a fresh air to the usual hype and hoopla crowded ICO/IEO market space.

2019.06.08 11:34 reverthelpISLAM 101: Your Faith: Part 2
The Testimony that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger Who is Allah’s Messenger? His Birth 1 Prophet Muhammad was born in 570 CE. His father died before his birth, and his mother also died when he was very young. Thus, he was placed under the care of his paternal grandfather, ‛Abdul-Muttalib, and, after his grandfather’s death, he was placed under the care of Abu Taalib, one of his paternal uncles. His Life and Upbringing 2 Muhammad spent forty years before he received revelation in the Makkan tribe of Quraysh into which he was born, and during this period (570-610 CE) he came to be known amongst his people as as-saadiq al-ameen (the truthful and trustworthy) because of his uprightness and excellent manners. He worked as a shepherd and later as a merchant. Before the advent of Islam, he maintained the pure monotheistic beliefs of Prophet Abraham , a haneef, worshipping Allah alone without ascribing any partners to Him and rejecting idol worship and pagan practices. His Mission 3 When Allah’s Messenger turned forty, he would regularly retreat to the Cave of Hiraa’, on the peak of Mount Noor on the outskirts of Makkah, in present-day Saudi Arabia, meditating and worshiping Allah. It was then that he started receiving revelation from Allah. The first verses he received there were: “Read in the name of your Lord who created. He created man from a clot of blood. Read, and your Lord is the Most Generous; He who taught by the pen; taught man that which he knew not.” (Soorat Al-‛Alaq, 96:1-5) These verses ushered in a new era of knowledge, reading, light and guidance. The Qur’anic revelations continued until his death twenty-three years later. The Beginning of His Mission 4 After three years of preaching secretly, Allah’s Messenger spent another ten years preaching Islam openly. During this period, he and his Companions were subjected to all forms of injustice and persecution at the hands of the Quraysh pagans. Not losing heart, he began presenting himself during the pilgrimage season to the pilgrims who came from various tribes, calling them to the new faith. Pilgrims from Madeenah accepted Islam and, soon afterwards, Muslims started migrating to their city in successive groups. His Migration 5 At the age of fifty-three, Allah’s Messenger migrated to Madeenah, which was then called Yathrib, in 622 CE, after the Quraysh notables who had opposed his mission plotted to kill him. He spent ten years there, inviting people to Islam, and enjoined the prayer, zakaat and the other Islamic rituals on the Muslims. His Efforts to Spread Islam 6 Following his migration to Madeenah (622-623 CE), Allah’s Messenger laid the foundation for Islamic civilisation and determined the aspects of the Muslim society. He eradicated tribal fanaticism, spread knowledge, established the principles of justice, righteousness, fraternity, cooperation and organisation. Some tribes attempted to put an end to Islam once and for all, leading to a number of skirmishes and wars, but Allah supported His Messenger and made Islam reign supreme. Then, people in Makkah and in most cities and tribes in the Arabian Peninsula willingly began entering this great religion in crowds, fully convinced that it is the true religion. His Death 7 In the lunar month of Safar, 11 AH (June 632 CE), after Allah’s Messenger disseminated the message of Islam and Allah had completed His favour upon the Muslims by perfecting His religion for them, the Messenger had a sudden onset of fever which led to his death on Monday 11 Rabee‛ Al-Awwal 11 AH (8 June 632 CE) at the age of 63. He was buried where he died, in the apartment of his wife ‛Aa’ishah ~, which is now housed within the Prophet’s Mosque in Madeenah. Our Prophet’s Name Muhammad was the son of ‛Abdullaah, son of ‛Abd Al-Muttalib of the Banu Haashim clan of the Quraysh. He was indisputably the noblest of all Arabs. A Messenger to All Mankind:Allah sent Muhammad as a messenger to people of all races, classes and colours, and He made it everybody’s duty to obey him, as the Qur’an states, “Say: ‘O Mankind! I am the Messenger of Allah to you all.’” (Soorat Al-A‛raaf, 7:158) The Qur’an was Revealed to Him: Allah sent down to him the greatest of His divine scriptures, the Holy Qur’an, which falsehood can reach neither from before it nor from behind it. (Soorat Fussilat, 41:42) He was the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers Muhammad was the final prophet sent by Almighty Allah; therefore, there will be no prophet after him, as evidenced by the verse: “Muhammad is not the father of any of your men, but the Messenger of Allah and the Final Seal of the Prophets.” (Soorat Al-Ahzaab, 33:40) The Meaning of the Testimony that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger This means to believe his statements, do the acts he commanded, avoid the acts he prohibited and worship Allah according to the manner he prescribed and taught us. What Does Belief that Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger Entail?
To believe all the statements he made about everything. This includes the following:
Matters relating to the unseen world, such as the Last Day, the eternal bliss in Paradise and the everlasting punishment in Hellfire The events that will take place on the Day of Judgement, the signs of this day and the major incidents preceding the end of the world Stories of past nations and what happened between the prophets and their people 2) To do the acts he enjoined and avoid the acts he prohibited. This includes the following: A Muslim must believe all the statements authentically attributed to Allah’s Messenger. -To comply with his orders, fully convinced that he did not speak of his own desire and that what he came with was nothing but a revelation revealed to him, as the Qur’an states, “Whoever obeys the Messenger has obeyed Allah.” (Soorat An-Nisaa’, 4:80) -To avoid the acts he prohibited, such as erroneous practices and bad manners, fully convinced that he only prohibited us from doing so due to some divine wisdom and for our own benefit even if we may not be sometimes aware of such benefit -To be certain beyond any doubt that doing the acts he enjoined and avoiding the acts he prohibited will benefit us tremendously and bring us happiness in this life and in the hereafter, as the Qur’an states, “Obey Allah and the Messenger, that you may find mercy.” (Soorat Aal ‛Imraan, 3:132) -To firmly believe that those who disobey Allah’s Messenger r will suffer a grievous punishment, as the Qur’an states, “Those who oppose his command should beware of a testing trial coming to them or a painful punishment striking them.” (Soorat An-Noor, 24:63) 3) To worship Allah I in accordance with the Prophet’s instructions. This implies the following: -To follow his example: We ought to follow the Prophet’s Sunnah, or practice, including his words, deeds and tacit approval, in all aspects of our lives. Indeed, the more one follows the Prophet’s example, the more one gets closer to Allah I and the higher the grades of honour one will have with one’s Lord, as the Qur’an states, “Say, ‘If you love Allah, then follow me, Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful.’” (Soorat Aal ‛Imraan, 3:31) -Islam is complete: Allah’s Messenger May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him conveyed Islam and all its laws in full; thus, no one is allowed to introduce any practice in Islam which the Prophet r did not approve.Islam is relevant to all times and places: Islamic rulings mentioned in the Qur’an and the Prophet’s Sunnah are relevant to all times and places, for no one knows for certain what is best for people except Allah who created them in the first place. -To follow the Prophet’s Sunnah: For one’s goods deeds and devotional acts to be accepted by Allah I, they have to be done in accordance with the manner prescribed by the Prophet r, as the Qur’an states, “So let him who hopes to meet his Lord do righteous work and not associate anyone in the worship of his Lord.” (Soorat Al-Kahf, 18:110) The phrase ‘righteous work’ here denotes good deeds which are done in accordance with the Prophet’s Sunnah. -Innovations in religious matters are strictly forbidden: Those who introduce an innovation in religion (an act of worship which contradicts the Prophet’s Sunnah), such as offering a prayer not sanctioned by the Prophet S, blatantly go against his command and will have the innovation they have introduced rejected, as the Qur’an states, “Those who oppose his command should beware of a testing trial coming to them or a painful punishment striking them.” (Soorat An-Noor, 24:63) The Prophet May Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him also said in this connection, “He who innovates something in this religion of ours that is not of it will have it rejected.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhaaree: 2550; Saheeh Muslim: 1718) By strictly forbidding innovations in religion and adding or changing acts of worship, Islam intends to protect divine law against distortion and alterations and safeguard it against being subjected to people’s whims and desires. Apart from this, Islam does, however, encourage the human mind to engage in innovative thinking and to explore the secrets of the universe in all aspects of life with a view to serving humanity and helping develop its present and future status.
