For The Love Of Almighty Creator

"I had no interest to know anything about Islam, not to mention the consideration of embrace Islam." One of the former Christian told me about this, that she finds the true path of life in Islam.

It's true that most of the time Non Muslim stay away from knowing what Islam really about. The so called "Islamophobia" that cause by terrorism, Right Wing, media, etc. It makes Non Muslim feel like there's nothing to deal with Islam anyway.

"I have tried so hard to debate with my husband (before married), till I cried and cried that hoping so much he'll embrace Christian. That's all because I thought Islam is a wrong religion and I want to pull him away from hell fire."

As time goes by, she was trying to learn what Islam about for the very first time. Something that she never tried in her whole life.. As she was thinking that Christianity is the only faith she needs and that's not necessary to learn what other religions about.

However, the more she reads about Islam from the books and internet, including listening to Ahmad Deedat and Zakir Naik speeches from youtube, she has a whole new perceptions about Islam. The most apparent fact is prohet Isa a.s. (Jesus) is mentioned 25 times compared to prophet Muhammad s.a.w. 4 times in al-Qur'an. It shows that Islam never deny the existence of prophet Isa a.s. (Jesus), in a matter of fact believe in prophets including Isa a.s. also pillar of faith in Islam without associating him with al-Mighty Creator.

Narrated Abu Hurairah: Allah’s Messenger(p.b.u.h.) said, “My similitude in comparison with the other Prophets before me is that of a man who has built a house nicely and beautifully, except for a place of one brick in a corner. The people go round about it and wonder at its beauty, but say: “Would that this brick be put in its place!”So I am the last(end) of the Prophets.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.4 Hadith No.735)

Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. didn't deny the existence of Jesus, also not the so called "Anti Christ". He is the last messenger to perfect the Ad-Deen (Faith) of Islam. This fact really captured her attention to know more about Islam as a Christian believer, that God is showing her the true Guidance with His Mercy.

"At that time, that kind of faith towards Christian is somehow similar to the faith I'm having towards Islam right now, but I could find the inner peace and I have become a better person.

My faith is getting stronger. Allah SWT is more closer to me compared with the time I was a christian.."

She was asking me what's stopping people from knowing Islam?
Is there anything we could do to share the true message of Islam?

Yup sure.. We could do our part as a Muslim. Islam is not a brand new religion that pop out from nowhere. Every prophets before prophet Muhammad s.a.w. was telling the same message, worship none but Allah SWT, the al-Mighty Creator.

Mankind was [of] one religion [before their deviation]; then Allah sent the prophets as bringers of good tidings and warners and sent down with them the Scripture in truth to judge between the people concerning that in which they differed. And none differed over the Scripture except those who were given it - after the clear proofs came to them - out of jealous animosity among themselves. And Allah guided those who believed to the truth concerning that over which they had differed, by His permission. And Allah guides whom He wills to a straight path.

al-Qur'an, (Surat Al-Baqarah (The Cow) 2:213)

Being Islam doesn't mean betray our God, instead we are learning the real attribute of God and love Him more than ever..

The true faith towards God.
