Your Way to Islam
II- ISLAM: WHY? FOR WHOM? WHEN?
Islam ... Why?
1. Because Islam is the religion accepted by Allah for all humanity.
2. Because Islam is the religion of all prophets since Adam to Muhammad (Peace be upon them all).
3. Because Islam is the seal of all heavenly riligions, and
4. Because the Messenger of Islam is the last of God’s apostles, and
5. Because its Book (Al-Qur'an) is the last of Allah’s scriptures.
6. Allah ta’ala (Glory be to Him) says:
)أَفَغَيْرَ دِينِ اللَّهِ يَبْغُونَ وَلَهُ أَسْلَمَ مَنْ فِي السَّمَوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ طَوْعًا وَكَرْهًا وَإِلَيْهِ يُرْجَعُونَ(
Meaning: "Do they seek other than the Deen (Religion) of Allah? - while all creatures in the heavens and on earth have, Willing or unwilling, bowed to His Will (accepted Islam), and to Him shall they All be brought back." [Al-Qur'an 3:83]
)وَمَنْ يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلاَمِ دِينًا فَلَنْ يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ وَهُوَ فِي الآخِرَةِ مِنَ الْخَاسِرِينَ(
Meaning: "If anyone
desires a Deen (Religion) other than Islam (submission to Allah) it never will
be accepted from him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who
have lost (everything)."
1. For every person upon whom Allah has bestowed life and intellect.
2. For those who can see the blessings of Allah.
3. For those who can hear the Words of Allah.
4. For those who can comprehend the signs of Allah.
5. For those whose hearts are full of love and gratitude to Allah.
6. For you, and for me, and for those whose blessed hearts are open to faith.
Islam ... When?
1. Now, not tomorrow.
2. Obey your heart’s call to faith.
3. It is your life chance.
4. A golden chance that might not strike your heart again.
5. Answer Allah’s call. He summons you.
6. Allah says:
)فَإِلَهُكُمْ إِلَهٌ وَاحِدٌ فَلَهُ أَسْلِمُوا وَبَشِّرِ الْمُخْبِتِينَ(
“But your God is one God, submit then your wills to Him (in Islam), and give the good news to those who humble themselves.” [Al-Qur'an 22:34].
