I was writing a new article in wikipedia and after saving the article a message was automatically appended to that
"This article is proposed for deletion"

I am curious whether they include every new article in deletion Que and when big editors approves them only then this message is removed or some content related issue?

can peoples here please share key points to avoid the deletion of articles, assuming that article was not intended for any commercial reason or spamming wikipedia

It could be an anti-spam measure.
go into the talk page of your new article and explain why the article should be kept and not deleted.

* Sometimes, the objections to new information in Wikipedia become rationalized censorship, and it may get deleted. Wikipedia needs to be understood by the masses; submitting highly intellectual or specialized articles may be called vanity and runs the danger of "casting pearls before swine" and your article may be heavily edited, or in extreme cases, deleted.

* Don't try to re-create a deleted article unless you have a good reason--like if the article was not done properly before, but now you are doing it correctly--otherwise it will be deleted again, and you may be blocked by an admin for doing edits that are not conducive to the best interests of Wikipedia
