This Dunya is a journey, not a destination.

One of the reasons why I love Islam is because of the sheer logic it provides and the scientific proof that the Qur’an is the Word of God and the Ahadith of Prophet Muhammed Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam – are the most enlightening words to read…

As a Christian before, I just couldn’t understand why  God sent himself to sacrifice himself to himself to save us from himself – it’s a bit too much for any logical person.

There isn’t anything to make you feel uncomfortable. Men, women, children can all read the Qur’an in the same room and agree without contradiction that it is the Word of God and God Himself has challenged anyone on earth to bring forth one piece of literature like it.

“If you are in doubt about what we have sent forth to our servant, then produce just one chapter like it.” Surah 2 Ayah 23; Holy Qur’an.

There is no human on the earth who has the capacity to write something like the Qur’an.

A “rap genius” would be considered to have at least one rhetorical device in his bars right? i.e metaphors, similes, alliteration…
The smallest chapter of the Qur’an is 10 words long and has 40 rhetorical devices included. That is a fact and a miracle in itself; not to mention the information within the Qur’an which is a scientific miracle.

The power of the Qur’an is that it remains authentic from the 7th century until now, syllable for syllable, page for page – memorised in the hearts & minds of millions – unchanged – but it’s words can change you completely.

[He] who created death and life to test you [as to] which of you is best in deed – and He is the Exalted in Might, the Forgiving

Surah 67 Ayah 2; Holy Qur’an.

It’s an open invitation for every human in the world, regardless of where you come from or what your background is. Islam taught me gradually how to let go of the Dunya (this life) –  without abandoning my responsibilities as a human being. It provides a perfect balance.
You are Muslim, you have obligations firstly ttowards yourself, your God, your spouse, your parents, your children, your neighbours, your friends but at the same time this life is temporary…

“Be in this life as if you were a stranger or a traveller on a path” – Prophet Muhammad Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam.

We all agree, whether you’re poor, rich, atheist, Christian or Muslim – that we have one life. You will take no one, no possession, no house, no animal, nothing that you love will you be able to take with you, when you die. Therefore, you don’t own anything it’s all just an illusion. The only thing you carry with you is your soul and the good things you done in this life, the smallest act of charity can be multiplied between 10-700 times by Allah subḥānahu wa ta’āla and any bad deed that you do will be accounted for only once.

What miracle have you found which makes you feel in awe?
