Your Way to Islam
V- HOW TO PROTECT YOUR ISLAM?
1. Becoming a Muslim means that you have achieved a lot of good for yourself.
2. It is like owning a valuable treasure.
3. The owner of a treasure will have many enemies who strive to take his treasure away from him.
4. And you have gained the treasure of Islam.
5. Some people will try to drive you away from your Deen (Religion).
6. Those people are the foes of Allah.
7. The foes of Allah are devils whether from among Jinn (whom we do not see) or from among human beings.
8. Human devils may try to mock at you.
9. Or, they may try to persuade you by money so that you may turn back from your Religion.
10. They may accuse Islam of many things, or cloud your mind with some misconceptions.
11. You have to know that Allah has said in Al-Qur'an:
)وَلاَ يَأْتُونَكَ بِمَثَلٍ إِلاَّ جِئْنَاكَ بِالْحَقِّ وَأَحْسَنَ تَفْسِيرًا(
Meaning: "And no question do they bring to you but We reveal to you the truth and the best explanation." [Al-Qur'an 25:33]
12. So, consult Muslim scholars about what Allah has revealed in Al-Qur'an to answer such misconceptions.
13. As for Jinn devils they whisper into your heart. “Would you desert your fathers’ and forefathers’ religion, and follow a different one?”
14. Would you follow a religion that tasks you with prayers, fasting and giving others your property? And that deprives you from wine… etc.”
15. In fact, many people grow up, and find themselves traditionally following and venerating their parents’ religions and beliefs.
16. All followers of true, or false religions are like that,
17. But the problem is: which of these religions is the true one and which is the false?
18. Surely, Islam is the only Deen (Religion) which is pure and free from all types of superstitions, polytheism and paganism.
19. It is the Deen of pure Monotheism.
20. When you feel these whispers of Jinn devils, recite:
رَبِّ أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ هَمَزَاتِ الشَّيَاطِينِ *
'a`udhu bika min hamazatish-Shayatin, Wa 'a`udhu bika rabbi 'an yahdurun).
22. And recite also the chapters: Al-Falaq and An-Nas, of the Qur'an. These are included in Appendix (1) with transliteration.
