In the name of Allah, Most Gracious and Most Merciful.

This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion.(Al-Maeda, 3)

Dear friend,

I'm really sorry if I've made you angry. I just tell you why do people convert to Islam and I think, I should explain to you my words in the last post. My first point is people convert to Islam because of one God. Yes, we've been told about it in Koran. Same like you. You believe to 33 millions gods because you've been told in your scripture too. Let we discuss together about this thing. If there are no holy books on the earth, what will you think about your god? Besides that, also ask yourself what you want your god to look like? If me, whatever happen on the earth, I just believe to a God. There must be only one God who governs the world. Why? It is because only the god has the power. A god should not have a partner to help Him to govern the world. Do you agree with my point? I hope so. And another thing, do you believe a god has a child? I mean maybe a son or a daughter. If this happen there are not so much different between a god and a human.

This is the Book; in it is guidance sure, without doubt, to those who fear Allah(Al-Baqara, 2)

It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus).(Aal-e-Imran, 3)

My second point is people convert to Islam because they read Koran. Yes, because they read Koran. It is hard to tell you why. I believe 100% to Koran because I read it everyday. So, I know the content very much. Youï'll know it if you read it too. Please follow my advice! Read Koran and compare it to the entire holy book which you can found around the world. God words never lose. Most of the non Muslim just says this and that about the Koran. Why don't you read it and think about the content in it. Insya-Allah (with the help of Allah) you'll know the truth soon.

My third point is only the God can forgive our sins. So, that is why people convert to Islam. Prophet Muhammad is the great man. Allah had chosen him to bring Islam to the people on the earth. Although that, he has no power to forgive our sins. Why? It is because only the God has the power. Only He can forgive our sins. However, if you have done something bad to the other people, you should ask them to forgive you. It ïs fair right?

My friend, I'm really sorry if I've made you angry. I just want to share my opinion with you. Hope, Allah will bring you back to Islam. Insya-Allah. Before I end my post, think of this sura.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

  1. Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds;
  2. Most Gracious, Most Merciful
  3. Master of the Day of Judgment.
  4. Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek.
  5. Show us the straight way.
  6. The way of those on whom Thou hast bestowed Thy Grace, those whose (portion) is not wrath, and who go not astray.(Al-Fatiha, 1-6)
