One Thing that Should Make Everybody a Muslim:
Du’a – Asking Allah for Help and for What You Want and Need [Quote 394]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


Here is a simple fact: No one does it like the Muslims.

Don’t believe me? Go, check it out.

I mean making Du’a the way the Muslims do. That is, asking God for help and for what one wants and needs.

How can the rest of the world compete with the Muslims on this front when the Muslims have a whole set of powerful choices and incentives going for them?

All given to them by God Almighty himself.

What options others do or do not have is up to them to tell us. But what the Muslims have open to them is clear as daylight.

And it is powerful stuff. Enough to put anyone over the edge to become Muslim.

I am providing below some of the options and incentives the Muslims have available to them.

If I were not a Muslim already, this alone will be a powerful enough argument for me to take a careful look at Islam as a life-choice for me.

Muslims, of course, are perhaps the worst people on earth in sharing some of these things with the rest of the world, even though they have been enjoined – ordered – by God to go tell everyone everywhere about Islam and about God.

  1. The divinely ordained and mandated five-times-a-day “Prayers” are just that – more than anything else: they are prayers and supplications.

    I don’t know who else has anything like that.

  2. Other than that, God commands all human beings in the Qur’an to make Du’a to him. Ud’oonee, he says, meaning “Call Me!”

    I don’t know who else has anything like that either.

  3. And then God says in the Qur’an that when people put through a call to him, he answers back; he responds; and he gives them of what they want.

    If others have things quite like that, at that level, I am not familiar with them.

  4. And then God says in the Qur’an that he is so close to everyone that he can hear and respond to the call and prayer of anyone who calls him, when and as they call him and pray to him.

    I don’t know who else has those kinds of assurances given to them.

  5. And then the Qur’an, using actual words of its own, teaches us what to ask God and how to do it – using what specific words.

  6. And I don’t think – to the best of my very limited knowledge of course – there is any other collection of Du’as (prayers) in the world like what the Qur’an offers, either in terms of quality or quantity.

    That is why I say this alone should push me to become a Muslim if I were not already one.

  7. And then there is the Hadith – the Du’as and supplications and prayers of the Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam.

    There is really nothing quite like them anywhere else in the world, either in quality or quantity.

  8. And then there are all the unlimited options that are open to individuals to pour out their hearts to their creator, without anyone else getting in the way, between them and him.

    How do you beat that?

That is why I say, if I knew nothing about Islam other than its amazing architecture of Du’as, prayers and supplications that is, that alone would drive me “post-haste” to check out Islam and embrace Islam.

Regardless of what else may be stopping or holding me back.

(Dr. Pasha)
