Assalam Alaikum.

Since my reversion to Islam I had to combat with my sudden descending of Iman until recently. But Alhamdulillah I survived into Deen of Allah. I always looked for some model companions to convince myself that Islam is the only truth but now my own mind works as a psychotherapist to the extent that I regained firm faith in Islam.

After accepting Islam I frequently analysed whether am I on correct path or not?. If someone convinced me for Islam being the religion of God through mutual discussions I was convinced but only for a short interval until a fresh invasion on my Iman occured.(This may or may not be a case with every revert). Here comes the use of common sense to find answers to the confused part of Iman.

Few decades before Tuberculosis was totally a lethal disease. At that time any contemporary human being would not have imagined that tuberculosis may be curable in future. Alhamdulillah its now curable. Where did antidote to Tuberculosis come from ?. Was there any extra-terrestrial source for anti-tubercular medicines?. No surely not. We found its Antidote on this planet itself. In short Allah has provided answer/solution for our every query/ problem on this planet only. Lets apply this principle to searching for true religion on Earth.

There are many religious ideologies on earth. Surely each of these pathways won't take us to salvation. Only one ideology has to be divine and others deviations of the sole true divine ideology. It means we have to explore that true ideology amongst different religions present on earth. Or in other words we have to explore and segregate the divine ideology from different religious ideologies present on face of earth.

No religious ideology would agree and respect idea of organic evolution. So it comes that advent of Human beings on earth was with a pair of Human male and female. Surely the religion of that pair should be the religion of all of its descendants until the creation is exhausted by the Creator. Lets go forward..... .......

 

Which is the religion on the face of earth which unifies the religion of our ancestral pair and our modern time human beings and still generations to come.?. Is it Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity or Islam.?. Surely the religion of mankind from east to west or north to south on the globe must be the one and the same. Will our creator prescribe different religion for different regions and ethnicities? . A divine religion has to be only one and universal.

Lets leave the matter whether Vedas, Torah, and Bible present today on face of earth are modified scriptures with time or are pure. When did Judaism and Christianity came into existence?. Did they originate with advent of Adam(Pbuh)?. No definitely not rather these religions came into existence with advent of their related Prophets. Neither Torah or Bible present today on face of earth mentions the word Judaism or Christianity. These words were used later and are human innovations. Interesting point is what was the religion of our ancestors before Judaism and Christianity came into existence.?. Literally these modified scriptures won't answer. A divine religion must have been present on earth with origin of human being and would exist until creator vanishes.

Hinduism truly called Sanatan dharma or ancient religion as is evident from vedas slightly indicates oneness of God and indeed in Vedas are scattered some verses which highlight Tawheed. But Vedas do lack a distinct picture of a universal religion. And if you look up today's Hinduism, it is most deviant religious ideology deviated from universal ideology of our creator.

According to Quran Prophet Adam was sent with a clear and distinct messge:

2:38. We said: "Get ye down all from here; and if, as is sure, there comes to you Guidance from me, whosoever follows My guidance, on them shall be no fear, nor shall they grieve''.

2:39 "But those who reject Faith and belie Our Signs, they shall be Companions of the Fire; they shall abide therein."

The above verses of Quran Hints that this message is for all from Prophet Adam till his last descendant comes on earth.

Further Quran says:

 

2:213. Mankind was one single nation, and God sent Messengers with glad tidings and warnings; and with them He sent the Book in truth, to judge between people in matters wherein they differed;''''

Thus there was a line of Prophets until Muhammad(SAW) propagating an universal message for mankind delivered from Allah time to time. The message is to follow a true unseen Creator in the manner the Creator himself instructed in his books.

Allah says in 3:67 '' Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to God's (Which is Islam), and he joined not gods with God".

The above verses are sufficient to clear that Islam is not a religion which came to our world with Muhammad(SAW) but was religion of Adam(Pbuh), Abraham(Pbuh) and Muhammad(SAW) .

I undoubtedly adhere that Islam is the religion of Human beings and all other creatures. I worship the unseen Lord and submit my will to him and feel proud to be a Muslim. I found answers to my queries with provisions made by my creator on this earth itself. Just use of common sense and a rational thinking is sufficient to conclude that Islam is the universal religion. I worship the unseen who created me and not the personality or monument or idol created by we the human beings.

 

 

With Best Regards.
