Challenge Islam!

In a recent testimonial, the reader mentions two distinctive points:

Umm Maryam Puri (Kenya)

• Kenyan born Indian
• Was Hindu
• Became Muslim in May 1995

\"I always knew Muslims so I was aware of their religion, but it was never put to me that it can be my religion as well. I used to think that all religions lead to one God, but then I realized that after thinking about it when there are so many different versions of God in people's minds, that this couldn't be true. What made me look into Islam properly was when I asked a Muslim what would happen to me if I died as a non-Muslim, and he replied that I would go to the Hell-Fire. So I thought then it was important for me to look into Islam so that either I could accept it or reject it. And then that's what I did and I became a Muslim.”

Allah, the Mighty, the Majestic, mentions in his final revelation, that which renewed the monotheistic message of the originally revealed Bible and abrogated it, the noble Qur'an:

\"Do they seek other than the religion of Allah (the true Islamic Monotheism worshipping none but Allah Alone), while to Him submitted all creatures in the heavens and the earth, willingly or unwillingly. And to Him shall they all be returned. (Aali Imran 3:83)

So shouldn't we reflect upon creation and our utter dependance on our creator and doesn't this mean, He and He alone is deserving of all acts of worship, our Sustainer.

Perhaps you are content with your religion, proud of your heritage and couldn't fathom that those upon your lineage could have been in error, but were not those from noble lineages oppenents to Moses, Jesus and Muhammad? So why not consider the Qur'an, challenge it.

\"Do they not then consider the Qur'an carefully? Had it been from other than Allah, they would surely have found therein much contradictions.\" (An-Nisa 4:82)

Or maybe you consider yourself too deep in sin, too deep in your lifestyle, to hopeless to seek out the truth but is there hope?

\"Verily! Allah forgives not (the sin of) setting up partners in worship with Him, but He forgives whom he pleases sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, has indeed strayed far away.\" (An-Nisa 4:116)

Or perhaps you do not oppose (in essence) the concept of pure monotheism (tawheed) and the connection of worship solely between the created and the Creator, but you are content with a medeator in between (associate with Allah) such as Jesus (the Noble Messenger and servant of the Creator) or an idol,

Say (O Muhammad): \"O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Exceed not the limits in your religion (by believing in something) other than the truth, and do not follow the vain desires of people who went astray in times gone by, and who misled many, and strayed (themselves) from the Right Path.\" (Al-Ma'idah 5:77)

Follow the religion of the Prophets and Messengers, remember the religion of Ibrahim (Abraham), a pure monotheist and caller to it, let not your praise and worship be for the created things (humans, animals, fire, clay idols etc.).

Say (O Muhammad SAW): \"Shall I take as a Wali (helper, protector, etc.) any other than Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? And it is He Who feeds but is not fed.\" Say: \"Verily, I am commanded to be the first of those who submit themselves to Allah (as Muslims).\" And be not you (O Muhammad) of the Mushrikun [polytheists, pagans, idolaters and disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah].(Al-An'am 6:14)

Will those things that most of mankind call upon in association with, or replacement of, the One true God be able to assist you when you meet your creator, will you call upon them at that time?

Say (O Muhammad): \"Tell me if Allah's Torment comes upon you, or the Hour comes upon you, would you then call upon any one other than Allah? (Reply) if you are truthful!\" (Al-An'am 6:40)

Say (to the disbelievers): \"Tell me, if Allah took away your hearing and your sight, and sealed up your hearts, who is there - an ilah (a god) other than Allah who could restore them to you?\" See how variously We explain the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.), yet they turn aside. (Al-An'am 6:46)

All Praise and Thanks are for Allah, Lord of all Creation.<br><br>Post edited by: admin, at: 2007/02/23 03:14
