One of the Names of Allah is Al-Mu’min – The Infuser of Faith.
The One who witnessed for Himself that no one is God but Him. And He witnessed for His believers that they are truthful in their belief that no one is God but Him.
In Islam we believe that every human being is born with Fitrah. (Natural belief in One God). Therefore, when a child is born, it has with it a natural belief in God.
If the child were left alone, it would grow up aware of God in His oneness, but all children are affected by the pressures of their environment whether directly or indirectly.
We are who our parents are. We are who our ancestors are. We are who society tells us we should be. To be anything different from the “norm” is absurd and unusual. It is more comfortable to do what we have been taught without hesitation. Like robots. This is why we have Muslims in the world, who are not rightly guided… They follow the Islamic culture and not the religion itself.
“If they are told to follow what God has revealed, they say: ‘No, we will continue to follow what we found our fore-parents doing!’ Even though their fore-parents did not comprehend anything nor were they rightly guided.” Surah 2 Ayah 170; Holy Qur’an.
Those who are fortunate to be born in Muslim families must be aware that all such “Muslims” are not automatically guaranteed paradise, because the Prophet Sall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam warned that a large part of the Muslim nation would follow the Jews and Christians so closely that if they entered the den of a lizard, Muslims would climb in after them as well. He also said that before the Last Day some people would actually worship idols. Today, there are Muslims all around the world praying to the dead, building tombs and masjids over graves and even performing rites of worship around them. There are even some who claim to be Muslim and worship Ali (RA) as God.
There are those born into non -Muslim families and follow the religion of their parents and elders and oftentimes, the main area of dispute lies with Jesus Christ (AS).
The Islamic view of Jesus is one between two extremes. The Jews rejected his prophethood and called him an impostor, while many Christians regard him as the son of God and worship him as such.
Islam considers Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, as one of the great prophets of God, worthy of respect and honor but not worship. He was sent to confirm and renew the basic doctrine of belief in God alone and obedience to Him.
“(Remember) when the Angels said, ‘O Maryam (Mary)! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word [“Be!” – and he was! i.e Isa (Jesus) the son of Maryam (Mary)] from Him, whose name will be the Messiah, Isa (Jesus) the son of Mary – held in honour in this world and the Hereafter and will be one of those who are near to Allah.”
– Surah 3 Ayah 45; Holy Qur’an.
Therefore, the creation is based on balance and whoever adheres to moderation has achieved all goodness.
