Why do more and more people convert to Islam every day?

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009 at 12:21 pm  


What is it in islam that attracts people?

and another question… for what reasons exactly do the media portray islam in such a bad way?

i’ll sum it up…its basically because you can find things in islam that you cant get elsewhere…it completes your way of life, not many people (even people born into islam) can reach such a place, but it is possible…

and also, if you actually find out what islams really about (not just the stuff you see online or in the news) but i mean really about, people realise the benefits of the religion…

for those that say islam isnt the fastest growing religion, go to the states…so many people there convert to islam…

the reasons its portrayed in a bad way…i’m not entirely sure, there’s a few…people are scared of what they dont understand…people realise islam’s growing fast and dont like the prospect of a religion having so many followers…the thing is though, islams battles through this before at the time of the prophet and look where it is today…

if you want proof of any religion, have a look at the followers (the proper ones) and see how they are…

oh and in regards to the guy that quoted loads of bits of the quran…the qurans sort of written in poetry…so you have to read before and after these quotes to get the real meaning…like i know before someone showed me a quote where it basically said ‘disobey your parents’ but what he didnt realise was before that it was saying you should do this, dont do this….and the ‘dont do this’ part was about disobeying your parents…

like i said, if anyone want the truth, speak to a proper muslim…

They have a very high birthrate. Conversion via "being born.:"

Good question. Islam offers peace of the heart and soul, and a way to connect with God and with the rest of humanity. That’s the beauty of Islam.

The reason they portray Islam as bad is because it serves their interest. No one wants to hear about good Muslims, they want to see terrorists. It’s unfortunate. But the way they portray Islam is wrong.

@djmantx: Please don’t things from Islam out of context. Read the whole Quran if you want an explanation of those verses, the anti-Islamic websites don’t usually tell the truth.

i dunno maybe its the whole

”highest convert” thing

maybe its the ”highest birth rate”

some actually find peace in it

but i have read that if you were to take all pagan religions as one branch eg judaism paganism

then paganism is drawing the most converts.

whether it is true is hard to follow

I suppose because it does make more sense than Christianity, I think many former christians convert to it and I think that may be why.

The media always want something to pick on. The media can very rarely be trusted to portray things accurately. I wouldn’t listen to the media.

On here I have seen many former christians talk about how they converted to Islam and the thing they most often say that made them convert was cause Islam makes more sense and they couldn’t pretend to understand the christian trinity concept any longer

I hear the same thing but have never met or have any friends who have met anyone who became Muslim.Maybe you heard that from the same source that say’s Muslims are terrorists.


Have a few friends/acquaintances that are sikh and muslim and they are good people.Give you the shirt off their backs.Maybe we should take people as they come and not lump them together.

 vis says:

August 25, 2009 at 12:21 pm

i think the people who convert are just trying to go back to the old ways..the way jesus was and the media is picking up all the thing they do to people who are in the religion who are getting punished for not following it to a tee


 djmantx says:

August 25, 2009 at 12:21 pm

Many people do many things everyday…doesnt make them correct.

There are many people today who will do evil…why? Because they are persuaded by Satan to do evil..some are deceived. Islam is not the fastest growing religon. It is the Islamic propaganda machine that claims Islam is the fastest growing religion thinking that numbers would prove them right..the obvious problem would be that if truth was based on numbers Christianity would be the truth.

Christianity almost doubles the membership of Islam.

Christianity is growing in larger actual numbers.

Islam is smaller so makes the claim that it is the fastest growing religion based on percentage.

The truth is that having the most members does not mean you have the truth.

If it did it would be a good reason to leave Islam.

The best reason to leave Islam is it does not agree with the word of God.


The reason the new media portrays Islam in a bad light is there are many Muslims who believe they are following the teachings of Islam by killing people.

with good reason.

Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 176: Narrated by ‘Abdullah bin ‘Umar: Allah’s Apostle said, "You (i.e. Muslims) will fight with the Jews till some of them will hide behind stones. The stones will (betray them) saying, ‘O ‘Abdullah (i.e. slave of Allah)! There is a Jew hiding behind me; so kill him.’" Sahih Bukhari Hadith Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177: Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

Qur’an 2:191: And kill them wherever you find them, and drive them out from whence they drove you out, and persecution is severer than slaughter, and do not fight with them at the Sacred Mosque until they fight with you in it, but if they do fight you, then slay them; such is the recompense of the unbelievers.


Qur’an 4:089: They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among them a friend or a helper.

Qur’an 4:091: You will find others who desire that they should be safe from you and secure from their own people; as often as they are sent back to the mischief they get thrown into it headlong; therefore if they do not withdraw from you, and (do not) offer you peace and restrain their hands, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them; and against these We have given you a clear authority.

Qur’an 9:005: So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

Qur’an 17:033: And do not kill any one whom Allah has forbidden, except for a just cause, and whoever is slain unjustly, We have indeed given to his heir authority, so let him not exceed the just limits in slaying; surely he is aided.

News people report the news.

The good news is the Gospel of Jesus Christ who is the word of God which is that through the righteousness of Christ he has overcome temptation sin and death for all who will accept his atonement.


Mat. 5:

43 ¶ Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

Excellent question and I hope you continue asking such questions and find the answers. Trust me, it is worth it!

Islam means peace.

All we need is peace on this life and thereafter and Islam brings both.

The rest, you have to find it yourself.

I suggest you look at

Hey, anytime you and I will die. So why not find the true reason we live on this world? While we are still breathing?

Every Religion Claims That It Is The Truth - The Criteria Of The Truth

There are so many sects, cults, religions, philosophies, and movements in the world, all of which claim to be the right way or the only true path to Allah (God). How can one determine which one is correct or if, in fact, all are correct? The method by which the answer can be found is to clear away the superficial differences in the teachings of the various claimants to the ultimate truth, and identify the central object of worship to which they call, directly or indirectly. False religions all have in common one basic concept with regards to Allah. They either claim that all men are gods or that specific men were Allah or that nature is Allah or that Allah is a figment of man’s imagination.

Thus, it may be stated that the basic message of false religion is that Allah may be worshipped in the form of His creation. False religion invites man to the worship of creation by calling the creation or some aspect of it God. For example, prophet Jesus invited his followers to worship Allah but those who claim to be his followers today call

people to worship Jesus, claiming that he was Allah!

Buddha was a reformer who introduced a number of humanistic principles to the religion of India. He did not claim to be God nor did he suggest to his followers that he be an object of worship. Yet, today most Buddhists who are to be found outside of India have taken him

to be God and prostrate to idols made in their perception of his likeness.

By using the principle of identifying the object of worship, false religion becomes very obvious and the contrived nature of their origin clear. As God said in the Our’aan:

" That which you worship besides Him are only names you and your forefathers have invented for which Allah has sent down no authority: The command belongs only to Allah:

He has commanded that you only worship Him; that is the right religion, but most men do not understand ".(Soorah Yoosuf 12:40)

It may be argued that all religions teach good things so why should it matter which one we follow. The reply is that all false religions teach the greatest evil, the worship of creation. Creation-worship is the greatest sin that man can commit because it contradicts the very purpose of his creation. Man was created to worship Allah alone as Allah has explicitly stated in the the Qur’an:

" I have only created Jinns and men, that they may worship me "

(Soorah Zaareeyaat 51:56)Consequently, the worship of creation,which is the essence of idolatry, is the only unforgivable sin. One who dies in this state of idolatry has sealed his fate in the next life. This is not an opinion, but a revealed fact stated by Allah in his final revelation to man.

The following criteria can best serve as a gauge to find out the

authenticity of the last revelation (the Qur’an) as words of God:

1. Rational Teachings: Since our Creator bestowed reason and

intellect upon us, it is our duty to use it to distinguish the TRUTH from falsehood. True, undistorted revelation from God must be rational and can be reasoned out by all unbiased minds.

2. Perfection: Since our Creator is all perfect, His revelation must be perfect and accurate, free from mistakes, omissions, interpolations and multiplicity of versions. It should be free from contradictions in its narration.

3. No Myths or Superstitions: True revelation is free from myths or

superstitions that degrade the dignity of our Creator or man himself.

4. Scientific: Since our Creator is the Creator of all knowledge, true revelation is scientific and can withstand the challenge of science at all times.

5. Factual Prophecy: Our Creator is the Knower of the past, present and future. Thus His prophecies in His revelation will be fulfilled as prophesied.

6. Inimitable By Man: True revelation is infallible and cannot be imitated by man. God’s true revelation is a Living miracle, an open book challenging all mankind to see and prove for themselves its authenticity or veracity.

thanks emma for your kind question

answering it (directly)

from a muslim point of view the simple answer is "because it is the truth". and this is not something new this was the case since prophet Adam. there was always someone sent by GOD(messenger or prophet) teaches moralities and equalities and in the opposite there was people who are affected by this in their business or authority add to this some envy from those who have power and want to control people or those who used to follow certain prophet or messenger and inspite of the requirement to belief in the next they opposed him (racial reasons)


simply what you had seen in cartoons from battles between evil and goodness or kidness has some kind of origin in reality

from an unbiased point of view ( i will try but iam not sure if i can manage it)

islam spread beacuse the following points cant be all find in any other belief or philosophy except islam

1-source preserved without word change in the original language

2-simple belief :one GOD sent one message with different messengers

3-challenges to find a mistake or make one chapter like the Quran (falsification test)

4-logic answers to our big questions (make sense)

5-harmony with all fields of science

6-spirituals and moralities

it is true that muslim birth rate is higher than the non-muslim (keep in mind that this is the justification of those who deny the fact that people convert to islam)

but this doesnt neglect the fact that islam is spreading rapidly in the term of converts and USA and UK are the best examples

In the United States, for example, nearly 80 percent of the more than 1,200 mosques have been built in the past 12 years.


Some scholars see an emerging Muslim renaissance as Islam takes root in many traditionally Christian communities.


Islam has drawn converts from all walks of life, most notably African-Americans. Former NAACP President Benjamin Chavis, who joined the Nation of Islam recently, personifies the trend.

"In societies where you have minorities that are discriminated against, I think they may find an appeal in Islam," said Waleed Kazziha of American University in Cairo

as for the second part of your question

this site will do the job

Islam mercilessly bombed its way into being the fastest growing religion in the coward, gullible and greedy World. However many in the Arabo-Islamic World would have escaped from the bloody and bleeding jungle of Islam but for the fact that such ‘traitors’ would be killed to dare other potential ‘traitors’. In fact, different Islamic sects, each of which believes its brand of Islam is the genuine one, have always been bombing the "Kafri-tude" out of one another. On the other hands, Christianity, which still has the highest number of adherents, has an open door policy and it is the most peaceful religion in the World.

@DeViLiShLy GoOd♥,

Have you ever heard of the scandalous Islamic sensless and illogical TRINITY? Read about how Muslims authorities themselves exposed the scandal that was hidden many years—the SATANIC VERSES.

PROPAGANDA it is not really happening. It just makes muslims feel more secure in their faith to hear that or more doubts would creep in and they would leave.

Read this: - btw for islam to be true moped would be in the Bible and he is not.

Islam is the only religion that claims absolute uniqness of God and really means it and thus islam is the only religion today that follow the first commandment of all commandments to moses and jesus and mohammed which is :

"For thou shalt worship no other god: for the LORD, [is] a jealous God:" [Exodus 34:14]

and jesus said:

after one of the scribes asked him Which is the first commandment of all? Jesus answered him, "The first of all commandments is, Hear, O Israel The Lord our God is one Lord" [Mark 12:28to33]

and in Quran : " 1.Say, "He is God [who is] One, 2.God, the Eternal Refuge. 3.He neither begets nor is born, 4.Nor is there to Him any equivalent. " (112:1)

islam is simplicity , clearness , direct teachings , and absolute uniqness of God , no embeded paganism or multi Gods

God - is the source of life - and he is always alive he never sleeps - never dies - in his hands r the matters of heavens and earth - he is the most beautiful of all - and his love is the real love - he is the light of existance and the greatest of all kings - he neither begets nor born - nor to him any equivalent.

It just makes sense… when you read the Qurran and other books like the bible or something…. the Qurran provides more evidence of things. It brings peace in mind. It is hard to explain… you have to be muslim to experince it. For example, a lot of my American friends converted into Islam after they read the Quran.

Well Islam is the way of peace… Even though what you may hear from the media about Islam don’t believe any of it not all muslims are terrorist or bad. They worship the same God as Christians and Jews. Now alot could be that people got tired of the hypocracy in the Christian church amd were excepted by Muslims or the 72 virgins thing idk. But I am a Muslim convert and I did it meerly because of being discriminated against and I still am people are too blind to see the truth. I guess what i’m getting at is Islam just happens to be the fastest growing religion in the world. People could also do it out of fear. But everyone has their own reason to do it.

the reason why more and more people are becoming attracted to Islam nowadays is the MEDIA…..the media is portraying Islam in a bad way and is printing against it….this has raised curiosity among people to learn what this religion is about….when they stop believing blindly in the media and look deep into this religion, they find it a religion that is the most logical, scientifically perfect and true….
