Ocean, sky, birds, & freedom. Five reasons to be a Muslim

Five reasons to be a Muslim (I)

Follow the Abrahamic way of finding God. Follow your Fitrah and logic to reach the true one God.

[:en]     A huge number of people revert to Islam every day, from all over the world, for many reasons. Everyone has his/her own special reasons which encourage him/her to become a Muslim. Here I will show you five of the most common reasons for you to recognize the beauty of Islam.


First of all, Islam is the religion of God (Allah). He sent all the Prophets and Messengers to call for monotheism and worship of God alone. Islam is the religion of Fitrah (pure innate nature). God created Fitrah in people to guide them to the worship God alone. In Qur’an -the final revelation to mankind, revealed to Prophet Muhammad- God declares Islam to be the message of all Prophets and Messengers. All of them were Muslims.

Islam: The Religion of All Prophets

     All Prophets and Messengers came with Islam but with different teachings. God says to Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him – PBUH):


Indeed, We have revealed to you [O Muhammad], as We revealed to Noah and the prophets after him. And we revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, the Descendants, Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and Solomon, and to David We gave the book[of Psalms].”   
[Qur’an 4-163](1)

 All nations received the same message; God also says:


And We certainly sent into every nation a messenger, [saying], “Worship Allah and avoid taghut (False object of worship).” 
 [Qur’an 16-36](2)

So, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) came with the message which all Prophets Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, David, Solomon, Moses, and Jesus came with. All of them called their people to the worship of God alone, and prophesied about a messenger that comes after them; for example, Jesus says in the Qur’an:

And [mention] when Jesus the son of Mary said, “O children of Israel, Indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing a good tiding of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad (another name of Prophet Muhammad)…”   [Qur’an 61-6](3)


 Islam: The Religion of Fitrah


Abraham is the perfect example of using his Fitrah to find God. His story was told in all Divine Books (Old Testament, New Testament, and the Qur’an).

Let us take a journey with Abraham to find God. Abraham’s people and father were planetary and idol worshipers, they bowed down and were devoted to them. He asked them what do you worship?
They answered him:

We worship idols, bow down and remain devoted to them.” [Qur’an 26-71] (4)


He asked (Abraham) with pure innate nature,

Why do you supplicate to them when they can neither speak nor hear? They can neither help nor harm anything?!”
Then, they said: “We found our fathers do so.”
[Qur’an 26-72:74] (5)


Abraham wanted to free his people from idol-worship and rid them of myths and legends by asking his people about these idols.

When the people of Abraham persisted on worshiping idols. Abraham wanted to prove to them in practical terms and by sensible and rational evidence, that planetary and idol worshiping could not cause harm or bring benefit. Then, Abraham decided to debate his people according to their logic and reason to prove and show them that those planets and stars are dependent creations, that possess no harm nor benefit for themselves or others. They do not have the power to give life or cause death.

Muslim Abraham Method

Abraham one night saw a planet, then he said,

…this is my lord!” But when it set, he said, “I do not like things that set.” Then, he saw the moon rising, he said, “This one is my lord!” But when it set, he said, “If my Lord does not guide me, I will surely be among the people gone astray.” [Qur’an 6-77] (6)

In the morning he saw the sun so shiny, he said,

…this my lord; this is greater.” But when it disappeared he said, “O my people surely I disown all that you worship beside God.” [Qur’an 6-78] (7)

He went to the idols and destroyed them, then left the ax in the big one’s hand. When they came and asked him,

Was it you, Abraham, who did this to our gods?
He said: “No, it was done by the biggest of them- this one. Ask them, if they can talk!”
[Qur’an 21-62] (8)


     That is a demonstration that disbelief is the ultimate injustice. Shirk (the worship of anyone or anything besides God) is against the logic and Fitrah. Abraham is not actually believing in these things. He is demonstrating how silly you can be that you believe in these things.

Finally, follow the Abrahamic way of finding God. Follow your Fitrah and logic to reach the true one God. Become a Muslim.

To conclude,

there are many reasons to become a Muslim. Share with us what could be yours!
