Each person is born in a religious environment that is not of his or her own choice. From the very beginning of existence in this world, the newly-born are assigned the religion of their family, or the ideology of the state. By the time individuals reach their teens, they usually accept the beliefs of their parents or that of their particular society.

However, when some people mature and are exposed to other beliefs and ideologies, they begin to question the validity of their own beliefs. Seekers of Truth often reach a point of confusion upon realizing that believers of every religion, sect, ideology and philosophy all claim to have the one and only correct religion or ideology.

There are only three possibilities:

1. They are either all correct
2. They are all wrong
3. Only one is correct and the rest are wrong.

They cannot all be right since all religions are different from one another in their fundamentals.
When the majority claim that they alone are correct and the rest are wrong, it implies denying that God revealed His will to humankind. This possibility is absurd to those who believe in a Wise Creator.
So, which religion is the right one and how can the seeker of Truth know it?

In one's search for which religion is true, one should keep four things in mind:

First, God gave us the ability and intellect to make the crucial decision: WHAT IS THE TRUE RELIGION?

Second, God, the Most Compassionate, did not leave us to go astray without any guidance. Indeed, He sent us prophets with scriptures to show us the right path.

Third, seeking the true religion should be the most important thing in one's life because the everlasting life to come depends on it.

Fourth, one can determine the true path and make a rational and correct decision only if emotions and prejudices, which often blind one to reality, are put aside.<br><br>Post edited by: AbdulWahed, at: 2007/03/13 03:18
