I would like to take the opportunity to share with you my journey to Islaam
and I feel that by sharing this experience with you I can help you on your
journey through life. We are all born into different cultures, countries
and religions in what often seems a confusing and troubled world. Actually,
when we examine the world around us, we can easily see what a troubled state
it is in: war, poverty and crime. Need I go on? Yet when we look at our own
upbringing and our education, how can we be sure that all the things that
we have been told, are in reality the truth?
Unfortunately, most people in the world decide to try to hide and escape
from the world's problems rather than stand up and deal with the truth. Dealing
with the truth is often the harder avenue to follow. The question is: Are
you willing to stand up for the truth? Are you strong enough? Or, are you
going to escape and hide like the rest?
I started my search for the truth a number of years ago. I wanted to find
out the truth about the reality of our existence. Surely, to understand life
correctly is the key to solving all the worldly problems that we are faced
with today. I was born into a Christian family and this is where my journey
began. I started to read the bible and to ask questions. I quickly became
unsatisfied. The priest told me, "You just have to have faith." From reading
the bible I found contradictions and things that were clearly wrong. Does
God contradict himself? Does God lie? Of course not!
I moved on from Christianity, thinking the scriptures of the Jews and the
Christians are corrupted so there is no way that I can find the truth form
the false. I started finding out about Eastern Religions and Philosophies.
Particularly Buddhism. I spent a long time meditating in Buddhist temples
and talking to the Buddhist monks. Actually, the meditating gave me a good
clean feeling. The trouble was that it didn't answer any of my questions
about the reality of existence. Instead it carefully avoided them in a way
that makes it seem stupid to even talk about it.
I travelled to many parts of the world during my quest for the truth. I became
very interested in tribal religions and the spiritualist way of thinking.
I found that a lot of what these religions were saying had truth in them
but I could never accept the whole religion as the truth. This was the same
as where I started with Christianity!
I began to think that there was truth in everything and it didn't really
matter what you believed in or what you followed. Surely though this is a
form of escaping. I mean, does it make sense: one truth for one person and
another truth for someone else? There can only be one truth!
I felt confused, I fell to the floor and prayed, "Oh, please God, I am so
confused, please guide me to the truth." This is when I discovered Islaam.
Of course I always knew something about Islaam but only what we naively hear
in the West. I was surprised though by what I found. The more that I read
the Quran and asked questions about what Islaam taught, the more truths I
received. The striking difference between Islaam and every other religion
is that Islaam is the only religion that makes a strict distinction between
the creator and the creation. In Islaam we worship the creator. Simple. You
will find however, that in every other religion there is some form of worship
involving creation. For example, worshipping men as incarnations of God,
or stones. Sounds familiar. Surely though, if you are going to worship anything,
you should worship the one that created all. The one that gave you your life
and the one who will take it away again. In fact, in Islaam, the only sin
that God will not forgive is the worship of creation.
However, the truth of Islaam can be found in the Quran. The Quran is like
a text book guide to life. In it you will find answers to all questions.
For me, everything I had learnt about all the different religions, everything
that I knew to be true, fitted together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. I
had all the pieces all along but I just did not know how to fix them
I would therefore like to ask you to consider Islaam now. The true Islaam
as described in the Quran. Not the Islaam that we get taught about in the
West. You may at least be able to cut down your journey in search of the
truth about life. I pray for your success, regardless.
