This is what I came up with….may Allah forigve our sins
Looking for peace in your mind, Tranquility in your heart, Guidance in your life. When you feel lost you need to seek the truth. You need to know the purpose of your life. You see….your life has two sides to it, one side you have no say in it, you are in state of submission…birth, death, breathing, eating, etc. The other side is your CHOICES. Why don’t we choose to Submit to Our Creator? The creator of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of Adam, Nouh, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhamed Peace and blessing upon them. Submit willingly to Him, worship Him alone, pray to Him alone, turn to Him alone, obey Him alone, worship Him alone because He is the Only one worthy of worship. No Partners, ……..”In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful * He is Allah, the One * The Self-Sufficient Master the Eternal, Absolute * He begets not, nor was He begotten * And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him. (Quran :Chapter 113).
Now, when you translate the concept ‘submit to one God’ into Arabic language, you get the word ‘Islam’. Thus all the prophets of God, came with the faith of Islam (submission to one God and not to His creation).
Thus, when you enter Islam, you are not entering into a new faith, you are, in fact, entering the same religion which Jesus and moses and Abraham and Muhammad (peace be upon them) all believed in and preached to their people. Thus, you are spiritually getting connected with all these great men of God.
Secondly, God is All-Just, and when a baby is born, he/she is not born with the stigma of sin. All babies are pure and innocent and God has implanted an spiritual chip in each baby to recognize one true God. Thus, if we leave the baby alone to grow up, without any outside influence, then the baby will grow up to recognize, worship and submit to One God (which is Islam). All babies are born as Muslims (one who submits to one God).
So, when you enter Islam, you are not entering into a new faith, but the same faith as you were born with, which was Islam. You are ‘reverting back’ to the same truth, purity and innocence as you were born with!
The best reward which a person obtains when he/she enters Islam is the peace of mind in this world (by knowing that the purpose of life is to worship one God) and by obtaining eternal PARADISE in the hereafter.
With that said, I invite you to embrace Islam and start following the way of life lived by all the Prophets of God.
