Gott hat die Menschheit in Seiner Gnade und Gunst mit der angeborenen Fähigkeit begabt, Seine Existenz zu erkennen und anzuerkennen.  Er pflanzte dieses Bewußtsein als eine natürliche Veranlagung tief in ihre Herzen ein, die sich seit Menschen zum ersten Mal erschaffen wurden, nicht geändert hat.  Darüberhinaus verstärkte Er diese natürliche Veranlagung auch noch durch die Zeichen in Seiner Schöpfung, die Seine Existenz bezeugen.  Da es für die Menschen unmöglich ist, ein genaues Wissen von Ihm zu erhalten, außer durch Seine Offenbarungen, schickte Gott Seine Gesandten, die den Menschen von ihrem Schöpfer, den sie anbeten sollen, berichteten.  Diese Gesandten brachten auch Einzelheiten mit sich, wie man Gott dienen sollte, denn derartige Details kann man nur durch Offenbarung erfahren.  Diese beiden Grundlagen stellten die wichtigsten Dinge dar, die die Gesandten aller göttlichen Offenbarungen von Gott mitteilten.  Auf dieser Ebene besitzen alle göttlichen Offenbarungen dieselben edlen Ziele:

1.    Die Einzigkeit Gottes – des gelobten und gepriesenen Schöpfers – in Seinem Wesen und in Seinen Eigenschaften zu bestätigen

2.    Zu bestätigen, dass Gott allein angebetet werden soll und dass kein anderes Wesen außer Ihm neben Ihm oder an Seiner Stelle angebetet werden darf

3.    Das Wohlergehen der Menschen zu bewahren und sich gegen Korruption und Böses einzusetzen.  Denn alles, das den Glauben, das Leben, die Vernunft, das Vermögen und die Abstammung bewahrt, sind Teile dieses menschlichen Wohls, das die Religion schützt.  Auf der anderen Seite ist alles, das diese fünf universellen Bedürfnisse bedroht, eine Form der Korruption, die die Religion bekämpft und verbietet.     

4.    Die Menschen zum höchsten Grad der Rechtschaffenheit, sittlichen Werte und edlen Bräuche einzuladen 

Das ultimative Ziel einer jeden Göttlichen Botschaft war seit jeher dasselbe: die Menschen zu Gott zu leiten, ihnen Seine Existenz bewußt zu machen und dass sie Ihn allein anbeten sollten.  Jede Göttliche Botschaft kam, um diese Bedeutung zu bestärken, und diese Worte wurden von den Zungen aller Gesandter wiederholt: “Dient Gott, ihr habt keinen anderen Gott außer ihm.”  Diese Botschaft wurde der Menschheit  von Propheten und Gesandten überbracht, die Gott zu jeder Nation sandte.  Alle von diesen Gesandten kamen mit derselben Botschaft, der Botschaft des Islam. 

Alle die Göttlichen Botschaften kamen, um das Leben der Menschen zur freiwilligen Ergebung in Gottes Willen zu bewegen.  Aus diesem Grund teilen sie alle den Namen des “Islam”, oder “Ergebung”, abgeleitet von dem arabischen Wort “Salam” oder “Frieden”.  In diesem Sinne war Islam die Religion aller Propheten, Warum aber gibt es die vielen verschiedenen Unterschiede in der Religion Gottes, wenn sie alle derselben Quelle entstammten?  Die Antwort ist zweierlei:  

Der erste Grund ist, dass durch die lange Zeit, die verstichen ist, und aufgrund der Tatsache, dass die vorherigen Religionen nicht unter Gottes Schutz standen, sie zahlreichen Wechseln und Veränderungen unterlagen.  Als Ergebnis können wir feststellen, dass die grundlegenden Wahrheiten, die alle Gesandten gebracht hatten, sich nunmehr unter den Religionen unterscheiden; am offensichtlichsten ist das bei der Glaubenslehre und dem Dienst für Gott allein zu erkennen.

Der Zweite Grund dieser Variationen ist, dass Gott in Seiner unermesslichen Weisheit und mit Seinem Ewigwährenden Willen, bestimmt hat, dass all die göttlichen Botschaften vor der letzten Botschaft des Islams, die Muhammad -möge Gott ihn preisen- gebracht hat, nur auf einen bestimmten Zeitrahmen begrenzt gültig bleiben.  Aufgrund dessen befassen sich deren Gesetze und Methodologie nur mit diesen besonderen Bedingungen des Volkes, für das sie gesandt wurden.

Die Menschheit hat zahlreiche Perioden der Leitung, Irreführung, Rechtschaffenheit und Abweichungen durchlebt, vom primitivsten Zeitalter bis zur höchsten Zivilisation.  Die göttliche Leitung hat die Menschen durch all dies begleitet und jederzeit angemessene Lösungen und Heilmittel bereitgehalten. 

Dies war der Kern der Ungereimtheiten, die unter den verschiedenen Religionen vorherrschen.  Diese Uneinigkeit ging nie über die Besonderheiten des Göttlichen Gesetzes hinaus.  Jede Kundgebung des Gesetzes richtete sich an die besonderen Probleme des Volkes, für das es bestimmt war.  Trotzdem gibt es auch noch viele Abschnitte mit erstaunlichen Übereinstimmungen, zB. in den Grundsätzen des Glaubens, den Grundlagen und Zielen des Göttlichen Gesetzes, wie der Schutz des Glaubens, des Lebens, der Vernunft, des Eigentums, der Abstammung und das Walten von Gerechtigkeit im Land; und auch bestimmte grundsätzliche Verbote entsprechen sich, davon sind die wichtigsten: Götzendienst, Ehebruch, Mord, Diebstahl und falsche Zeugenaussagen.  Desweiteren simmen sie auch über gute moralische Eigenschaften überein, wie Ehrlichkeit, Gerechtigkeit, Keuschheit, Rechtschaffenheit und Gnade.  Diese und andere Prinzipien sind ewig und dauerhaft; sie bilden die Essenz aller göttlichen Botschaften und verbinden diese untereinander.

Laßt uns offen reden.  Fast nie beschäftigen sich Nicht-Muslime mit dem Islam, bis sie von den Enthüllungen ihrer Religionen das erstemal erschöpft sind.  Nur wenn sie mit den Religionen, die ihnen bekannt sind, unzufrieden geworden sind, das heißt, mit dem Judentum, dem Christentum und all den modernen “Dingen” – Buddhismus, Taoismus, Hinduismus (und, wie meine kleine Tochter hinzufügte, “Tourismus”) – erst dann denken sie über den Islam nach. 

Vielleicht beantworten andere Religionen nicht die wichtigen Fragen des Lebens, wie “Wer machte uns?” und “Warum sind wir hier?”  Vielleicht bringen die anderen Religionen nicht die Ungerechtigkeiten des Lebens mit einem gerechten und unparteiischen Schöpfer in Einklang.  Vielleicht finden wir in der Geistlichkeit Heuchlerei, unhaltbare Glaubensdoktrinen im Kanon oder Veränderungen in der Schrift.  Welcher Grund auch immer, wir erkennen Unzulänglichkeiten in den uns bekannten Religionen und sehen uns anderswo um.  Und das ultimative “anderswo” ist der Islam. 

Nun, Muslime hören es gar nicht gerne, wenn ich sage, der Islam ist das “ultimative anderswo”.  Aber es ist so.  Ungeachtet der Tatsache, dass ein Viertel bis ein Fünftel der Weltbevölkerung Muslime sind, besudelt die Nicht-Muslimische Presse den Islam mit so grauenhaften Verleumdungen, dass nur wenige Nicht-Muslime die Religion in einem positiven Licht sehen.  Daher ist es normal, dass dies die letzte Religion ist, die jene, die nach der Wahrheit suchen, erforschen.

Ein anderes Problem ist, dass die Nicht-Muslime, die den Islam überprüfen, durch die anderen Religionen, die sie kennengelernt haben, skeptisch geworden sind: Wenn jede von “Gott-gegebene” Schrift, die wir je gesehen haben, verändert worden ist, wie kann dann die Schrift des Islam anders sein?  Wenn Scharlatane Religionen manipuliert haben, um ihren Wünschen nachzukom-men, wie können wir uns vorstellen, dass mit dem Islam nicht dasselbe geschehen ist? 

Die Antwort benötigt nur wenige Zeilen, aber es braucht Bücher, um sie zu erklären.  Die kurze Antwort lautet: Es gibt einen Gott.  Er ist gerecht und unparteiisch, und Er will, dass wir die Belohnung des Paradieses erreichen.  Wie auch immer, Gott hat uns dieses weltliche Leben als eine Prüfung auferlegt, um die Würdigen von den Unwürdigen abzusieben.  Und wir wären verloren, wenn wir mit unseren Absichten uns selbst überlassen blieben.  Warum?  Weil wir nicht wissen, was Er von und will.  Ohne Seine Leitung können wir nicht die Wellen und Wogen des Lebens umsegeln und deshalb hat Er uns Leitung in Form von Offenbarung gegeben. 

Sicherlich sind die früheren Religionen verändert worden, und das ist der Grund, warum wir eine Kette von Offenbarungen haben.  Frag´ dich selbst: warum sollte Gott eine andere Offenbarung schicken, wenn die vorangegan-genen Schriften noch immer rein wären?  Nur wenn die vorangegangenen Schriften verändert worden sind, muss Gott eine andere Offenbarung senden, um die Menschheit auf den richtigen Weg zu leiten. 

Also sollten wir vermuten, dass die vorangegangenen Schriften verändert wurden, und wir sollten vermuten, dass die letzte Offenbarung rein und unverfälscht ist.  Wenn sie nicht rein wäre, müsste sie ebenfalls ersetzt werden, denn wir können uns keinen liebenden Gott vorstellen, der uns irregehen lässt.  Was wir uns vorstellen können, ist dass Gott uns eine Schrift gibt, und die Menschen verändern sie; Gott gibt uns eine andere Schrift, und die Menschen verändern sie wieder … und wieder, und wieder.  Bis Gott eine letzte Offenbarung schickt und verspricht, sie bis ans Ende der Zeit zu bewahren. 

Muslime betrachten den Heiligen Quran als diese letzte Offenbarung.  Du denkst, er … könnte es wert sein, mal hineinzuschauen.  Lasst uns zum Thema des Artikels zurückkehren: Warum Islam?  Warum sollten wir glauben, dass der Islam die Religion der Wahrheit ist, eine Religion, die die reine und letzte Offenbarung besitzt? 

“Oh, vertraut mir einfach.”

Nun, wie oft hast du diese Antwort schon gehört?  Ein bekannter Komiker pflegte zu scherzen, dass Leute aus verschiedenen Städten einer den anderen auf verschiedene Arten verfluchten.  In Chicago verfluchen sie jemanden so, aber in New York sagen sie einfach: “Vertrau´ mir.”

Also, vertrau´ nicht mir – vertrau´ unserem Schöpfer.  Lies den Quran und studiere gute websites.  Aber was auch immer du tust, fang an, nimm´ es ernst und bete zu unserem Schöpfer, damit Er dich leitet.  

Dein Leben mag nicht davon abhängen, aber deine Seele ganz bestimmt.

The Famous French Coach Philip Trousye Converted To ISLAM septembre 25 2009

The word “Muslim” means one who submits to the will of God, regardless of their race, nationality or ethnic background. Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process that requires no pre-requisites. One may convert alone in privacy, or he/she may do so in the presence of others.

If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and has full conviction and strong belief that Islam is the true religion of God, then, all one needs to do is pronounce the “Shahada”, the testimony of faith, without further delay. The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.

With the pronunciation of this testimony, or “Shahada”, with sincere belief and conviction, one enters the fold of Islam.

Upon entering the fold of Islam purely for the Pleasure of God, all of one’s previous sins are forgiven, and one starts a new life of piety and righteousness. The Prophet said to a person who had placed the condition upon the Prophet in accepting Islam that God would forgive his sins:

“Do you not know that accepting Islam destroys all sins which come before it?” (Saheeh Muslim)

When one accepts Islam, they in essence repent from the ways and beliefs of their previous life. One need not be overburdened by sins committed before their acceptance. The person’s record is clean, and it is as if he was just born from his mother’s womb. One should try as much as possible to keep his records clean and strive to do as many good deeds as possible.

The Holy Quran and Hadeeth (prophetic sayings) both stress the importance of following Islam. God states:

“…The only religion in the sight of God is Islam…” (Quran 3:19)

In another verse of the Holy Quran, God states:

“If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him; and in the Hereafter, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (their selves in the Hellfire).” (Quran 3:85)

In another saying, Muhammad, the Prophet of God, said:

“Whoever testifies that there in none worthy of being worshipped but God, Who has no partner, and that Muhammad is His slave and Prophet, and that Jesus is the Slave of God, His Prophet, and His word[1] which He bestowed in Mary and a spirit created from Him; and that Paradise (Heaven) is true, and that the Hellfire is true, God will eventually admit him into Paradise, according to his deeds.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

The Prophet of God, may the blessing and mercy of God be upon him, also reported:

“Indeed God has forbidden to reside eternally in Hell the person who says: “I testify that none has the right to worship except Allah (God),’ seeking thereby the Face of God.” (Saheeh Al-Bukhari)

The Declaration of the Testimony (Shahada)

To convert to Islam and become a Muslim a person needs to pronounce the below testimony with conviction and understanding its meaning:

I testify “La ilah illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah.”

The translation of which is:

“I testify that there is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and that Muhammad is a Messenger (Prophet) of God.”

When someone pronounces the testimony with conviction, then he/she has become a Muslim.  It can be done alone, but it is much better to be done with an adviser through the “Live Help” at top, so we may help you in pronouncing it right and to provide you with important resources for new Muslims.

The first part of the testimony consists of the most important truth that God revealed to mankind: that there is nothing divine or worthy of being worshipped except for Almighty God. God states in the Holy Quran:

“We did not send the Messenger before you without revealing to him: ‘none has the right to be worshipped except I, therefore worship Me.’” (Quran 21:25)

This conveys that all forms of worship, whether it be praying, fasting, invoking, seeking refuge in, and offering an animal as sacrifice, must be directed to God and to God alone. Directing any form of worship to other than God (whether it be an angel, a messenger, Jesus, Muhammad, a saint, an idol, the sun, the moon, a tree) is seen as a contradiction to the fundamental message of Islam, and it is an unforgivable sin unless it is repented from before one dies. All forms of worship must be directed to God only.

Worship means the performance of deeds and sayings that please God, things which He commanded or encouraged to be performed, either by direct textual proof or by analogy. Thus, worship is not restricted to the implementation of the five pillars of Islam, but also includes every aspect of life. Providing food for one’s family, and saying something pleasant to cheer a person up are also considered acts of worship, if such is done with the intention of pleasing God. This means that, to be accepted, all acts of worship must be carried out sincerely for the Sake of God alone.

The second part of the testimony means that Prophet Muhammad is the servant and chosen messenger of God. This implies that one obeys and follows the commands of the Prophet. One must believe in what he has said, practice his teachings and avoid what he has forbidden. One must therefore worship God only according to his teaching alone, for all the teachings of the Prophet were in fact revelations and inspirations conveyed to him by God.

One must try to mold their lives and character and emulate the Prophet, as he was a living example for humans to follow. God says:

“And indeed you are upon a high standard of moral character.” (Quran 68:4)

God also said:

“And in deed you have a good and upright example in the Messenger of God, for those who hope in the meeting of God and the Hereafter, and mentions God much.” (Quran 33:21)

He was sent in order to practically implement the Quran, in his saying, deeds, legislation as well as all other facets of life. Aisha, the wife of the Prophet, when asked about the character of the Prophet, replied:

“His character was that of the Quran.” (As-Suyooti)

To truly adhere to the second part of the Shahada is to follow his example in all walks of life. God says:

“Say (O Muhammad to mankind): ‘If you (really) love God, then follow me.’” (Quran 3:31)

It also means that Muhammad is the Final Prophet and Messenger of God, and that no (true) Prophet can come after him.

“Muhammad is not the father of any man among you but he is the Messenger of God and the last (end) of the Prophets and God is Ever All-Aware of everything.” (Quran 33:40)

All who claim to be prophets or receive revelation after Muhammad are imposters, and to acknowledge them would be tantamount to disbelief.

We welcome you to Islam, congratulate you for your decision, and will try to help you in any way we can.
