Islam; still the Fastest Growing Religion

02. September 2012 Basics 0

Through using the mind, one can prove that Islam is the only true religion to all humanity. That’s how Islam has been the fastest growing religion. And that’s how many scientists and doctors and historians embraced Islam and submitted to worshiping Allah and believed in Prophet Muhammad.


Islam is the only logical religion and encourages the use of the mind.


There are many many verses of the Qur’aan which encourage the use of the intellect. Allah revealed in the Qur’aan: “Do you not use your minds?” (Surahtul Baqarah ayah 44 and 76). This is also said in at least 10 other verses.


The mind has a limit – it cannot imagine Allah. As Imam Ahmad Ibn Hambal said, “Whatever you imagine in your mind, Allah is different from that”. This is because whatever you imagine in your mind is a creation; it has a beginning, shape, size, place, etc.


Islam is not like christianity, which is founded upon “blind faith”, or, as they say “just have faith”. May Allah enable us to not be among those mentioned in Surahtul Mulk, ayah 10,


which means: [Had we heard and used our minds (during our first life) we would not

have been among the people of Hellfire (today).]






Muhammad may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon him, who lived some 1400 years ago, was the last and greatest prophet. He came with Islam, with same religion of other prophets before him including: Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ishmael, Jacob, Joseph (son of Jacob), David, Solomon, Moses, and Jesus, may Allah’s peace and blessings be upon all of them.


The true scriptures were Revelations received by prophets. Moses and Jesus both received scriptures, but what are now called the Torah and the Bible have been tampered with by man and are not the true Revelations received by the great messengers Moses and Jesus. As now is seen today.


The only scripture which is unchanged and will never be changed is the Quran, which is the scripture Allah gave Muhammad, His last prophet, in clear and eloquent Arabic.


Allah has promised to protect the Quran from any changes by man, and it has remained unchanged since it was received some 1400 years ago. Unlike the prophets before him who were sent to a particular people, Muhammad was sent to all people who lived at his time and all people who live after him until the Day of Judgment when the earth will be destroyed.


This is among the many things that can be used to prove to the misguided ones, and to those who want to increase their faith, that Prophet Muhammad was a truthful Prophet of Allah, and that one must believe in him and in his call, utter and believe that no one is God but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, that’s how one accepts the call of the Prophet and becomes a Muslim, and will be guaranteed paradise.


Allah is the one who guides.
