    Why Islam?

    Why Islam?


    Let’s
    talk frankly. Almost never do non-Muslims study Islam until they have
    first exhausted the religions of their exposure. Only after they have
    grown dissatisfied with the religions familiar to them, meaning
    Judaism, Christianity and all the fashionable “-isms”—Buddhism, Taoism,
    Hinduism (and, as my young daughter once added, “tourism”)—do they
    consider Islam.

    Perhaps other religions do not answer the big questions
    of life, such as “Who made us?” and “Why are we here?” Perhaps other
    religions do not reconcile the injustices of life with a fair and just
    Creator. Perhaps we find hypocrisy in the clergy, untenable tenets of
    faith in the canon, or corruption in the scripture. Whatever the
    reason, we perceive shortcomings in the religions of our exposure, and
    look elsewhere. And the ultimate “elsewhere” is Islam.

    Now, Muslims would not like to hear me say that Islam is
    the “ultimate elsewhere.” But it is. Despite the fact that Muslims
    comprise one-fourth to one-fifth of the world’s population, non-Muslim
    media smears Islam with such horrible slanders that few non-Muslims
    view the religion in a positive light. Hence, it is normally the last
    religion seekers investigate.

    Another problem is that by the time non-Muslims examine
    Islam, other religions have typically heightened their skepticism: If
    every “God-given” scripture we have ever seen is corrupt, how can the
    Islamic scripture be different? If charlatans have manipulated
    religions to suit their desires, how can we imagine the same not to
    have happened with Islam?

    The answer can be given in a few lines, but takes books
    to explain. The short answer is this: There is a God. He is fair and
    just, and He wants us to achieve the reward of paradise. However, God
    has placed us in this worldly life as a test, to weed out the worthy
    from the unworthy. And we will be lost if left to our own devices. Why?
    Because we don’t know what He wants from us. We can’t navigate the
    twists and turns of this life without His guidance, and hence, He has
    given us guidance in the form of revelation.

    Sure, previous religions have been corrupted, and that isone of the reasons why
    we have a chain of revelation. Ask yourself: wouldn’t God send another
    revelation if the preceding scriptures were impure? If preceding
    scriptures were corrupted, humans would need another revelation, to
    keep upon the straight path of His design.

    So we should expect preceding scriptures to be
    corrupted, and we should expect the final revelation to be pure and
    unadulterated,for we cannot imagine a loving God leaving us astray.
    What we can imagine is God giving us a scripture, and men
    corrupting it; God giving us another scripture, and men corrupting it
    again … and again, and again. Until God sends a final revelation He
    promises to preserve until the end of time.

    Muslims consider this final revelation to be the Holy
    Quran. You consider it … worth looking into. So let us return to the
    title of this article: Why Islam? Why should we believe that Islam is
    the religion of truth, the religion that possesses the pure and final
    revelation?

    “Oh, just trust me.”
    Now, how many times have you heard that line? A
    famous comedian used to joke that people of different cities cuss one
    another out in different ways. In Chicago, they cuss a person out this way, in Los Angeles they cuss a person out that way, but in New York they just say, “Trust me.”

    So don’t trust me—trust our Creator. Read the Quran,
    read books and study good websites. But whatever you do, get started,
    take it seriously, and pray for our Creator to guide you.

    Your life may not depend on it, but your soul most definitely does.
