Why I chose Islam!

Assalamu Alaykum brothers and sisters,

This is my second post. In my first post, I mentioned that I am a revert, have reverted from Hinduism to Islam. A common question which comes to me most of the time is why I chose Islam.

So, my story goes as follows.

I belong to a very open minded middle class and religious hindu family. My parenst believe in one god but at the same time they follow something which is forbidden in Islam. According to them there is only one god, but they believe that god took birth on earth in different forms and hence they follow all the forms.

Since childhood, I used to question my parents a lot of things like, have we seen god? how can god take birth? the idols whom we consider as god, how do we know that god looks like this? why do we do so and so customs in the name of god? bla bla bla! My dad always used to answer me one thing, “This is what we have been following and this is what society follows”. My mind never settled, but I never ever thought of finding out the reasons. I had no muslim friend at that time and therefore was confined to the views of hindus only.

When, I got admission in the university for my Bachelors, Alhamdulillah, I met a lot of muslim people. I got to interact with people who have a completely different way of understanding and who live their life in a different way. Infact, my room mate was a muslim, so I could actually see what all activities a muslim do in his day. I slowly got influenced and a time came, when I was actually reading books and googling on the internet to find more about Islam. I was keen to find out answers to all my questions. I started questioning my parents more frequently, and if they were not able to answer my question, I would tell them what all I found in Islam! And one day, after getting fulling convinced and after getting convinced that there is no god but Allah, I decided to follow the truth, read the shahdaht and asked Allah subhana-wa-tala to forgiveness. Did ghusl and started learning how to pray!

Today, I can say that I am a muslim by choice. This is what ‘taqdeer’ is and this is how Allah subhana-wa-tala helps a person to know the truth of this duniya and helps him in following the right path.

May allah subaha-wa-tala show the correct path to all of you and help you here and hereafter.

Ameen.

Allah hafiz!

Assalamu Alaykum brothers and sisters,

This is my first post on my very first blog! I was thinking of writing a blog for a very very long time but never got a topic to write on! And today, I just thought of starting a blog on Islam because I want the people to understand the truth of life and turn to Allah subhana-wa-tala. Insha-allah, I hope that I’ll be able to spread the message of Islam to all my brothers and sisters!

A brief introduction about me, I am a revert, have reverted from Hinduism to Islam. I am saying myself a revert because I believe that Allah subhana-wa-tala is the ONLY creater and everything on this earth is his creation. Therefore, even though I was following a different religion once, I was still a Muslim by birth and now, after understanding the religion Islam, after getting convinced that there is no god but Allah, I can say that I am a muslim by choice as well.

I hope that all the information I share on this blog will be useful to the people, insha-Allah and if anyone of you find anything wrong, please dont hesitate to tell me, because I am a learner too and we all can share our views and come closer to Allah subhana-wa-tala by increasing our knowledge.

May allah grant you peace here and hereafter!

Allah Hafiz!
