Born orphan. Right after birth, his mother passed away. Nurtured by another mother of the same tongue (Arabic), and living at the countryside (a Bedouin), the prophet Mohammad PBUH (Peace Be upon Him), was consequently taken care of by his grandfather and uncle. Mohammad PBUH gifted with the Quran for Humanity, and the messenger of Islam, said: “Ever new born is born with instinct (a close translation to “Fitra” in Arabic). The parents either raise him to be a Jew, a Christian, or a Buddhist”. This paper purpose focuses on the identification of instinct and its relevance to the belief system the prophet of this proverb came up with; Islam. Islam, a name of a belief system derived from the Arabic term “Salam”—peace in English—, and means ascending to “Allah”. In this paper, Islam resembles “the methodology” for maintenance of the state of instinct. Quran is the curriculum, and the set of teachings is the pedagogy. This early childhood experience evolving in a prophet, whose duty was to deliver a module for building prosper communities, is the drive of this study. This paper is displaying in a dedicated research those standardized practices for nowadays’ prosper lifestyle, especially, while noticeable is the result of incongruities by today’s followers of this naturally conceived comprehensive belief system comprising a transparent curriculum and methodology. Research methodology of this paper is the researcher’s property and complies with the top international best practices of relevance.
