So, You Are Not a Muslim Yet?

Dr. Pasha

(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur’an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --
And which One Does Not?)

But why not?

You have had questions.

And you have been looking.

Should we say for quite some time?

And you never quite got the answers that would go to your heart, answers that will give you real satisfaction.

I mean answers that will bring real joy and comfort to you.

And all this time, you have been looking and looking and looking.

You have done your research and your reading. And you have even done your talking to people.

All of that is as it should be. That is what we are supposed to do as human beings: look and search and ask questions.

That is what Islam teaches us to do. In fact, that is what Islam is all about: Asking questions and looking for answers.

The Qur’an, God’s final revelation in our hands, repeatedly asks us to do precisely that: look and search and ask questions.

The Qur’an tells us that God gave us our senses so that we will observe and study his creation.

And he gave us our brain so that we will analyze and understand the information and images we get from the world around us.

And we will use that knowledge and that understanding to recognize God and come close to him.

And recognize the common humanity of Man and learn to love all human beings.

And find the common thread of Unity that runs through all of God’s creation and learn to respect and celebrate it.

So, if you have been asking questions, and looking for answers, then you have been doing exactly what God Almighty intended you to do when he created you with his own hands and breathed his spirit in you.

Welcome to Islam, Ladies and Gentlemen!

Welcome to Islam.

For, that is what Islam is and that is what Islam does. It provides answers to your questions.

And it encourages you to ask even more questions.

And it gives you strong evidence and arguments to support those answers.

For example, look at this simple equation that you probably never thought existed. Or that something like this was even possible.

And it is there all the time, right in front of all of us. But we never quite zeroed in on it.

You know Abraham, God Bless Him, from the Old Testament, right? And you know Moses, God Bless Him, the Great Law Giver, also from the Old Testament, right?

And of course you most probably know Jesus, God Bless Him, from the New Testament, correct? And quite possibly you also know him from your family and your church.

Or maybe you grew up with some other religious tradition, from a non-Christian and non-Biblical background maybe.

But regardless, the fact remains that you have been wondering. And you have been asking questions and you have been looking for answers.

Or maybe today is your first day to do so.

Maybe today, you are all of a sudden wondering about things and asking questions you never did before.

But here is what is really important: No matter what your religious background or inclination, and no matter what your level of curiosity and personal search, here is what confronts all of us right now – you, me and everyone else: All these three great men of history – Abraham, Moses and Jesus (may God bless them!) – taught one single truth: No God but God!

They all taught that God was one. They all taught that there was no God but God. And they all taught that God had no associates or partners of any kind.

That is what they all taught, no question or doubt about that.

Everyone everywhere knows and agrees with the fact that they all taught this timeless message: No God but God!

Everyone knows that to preach that message was the mission of Abraham’s life. And that message was also the core of Moses’ Ten Commandments.

That message of “No God but God!” was and remains to this day embodied in the First Commandment.

And Jesus, (May God Bless Him!) when asked what the most important commandment was, replied that it was the First Commandment that says: There Is No God but God!

Now, Ladies and Gentlemen, do you think all this was a mere coincidence? Do you think it was a totally random occurrence, without any plan or purpose of any kind behind it?

Or do you think God intended it to be that way?

If you come to the conclusion that somehow that was God’s purpose on earth for all of us, to convey that core message to humanity over the ages, time after time, then wait.

The story of the First Commandment is far from over.

Wait till you learn about Muhammad, God Bless Him!

Muhammad came nearly 600 years after Jesus, just as Jesus came nearly 600 years after Moses, who himself came nearly 600 years after Abraham.

May God bless them all!

What a blessed chain of divine messengers to all of us human beings!

Muhammad, God Bless Him, picked up exactly where Abraham and Moses and Jesus left off. He preached the same eternal message that they all did: No God but God!

His words were: Laa Ilaaha Illallah!

In fact, these are God’s own words that God set down in the Qur’an, his final and most comprehensive revelation to all of humanity and for all time to come.

And that means you – and I and everyone else.

That is right! The Qur’an came to you. And it came for you.

And it came to and for all of us.

Many people don’t realize this but the fact is that God’s book Qur’an came to and for each and every one of us human beings directly and individually.
