Why Islam

Why Islam

Why Islam? Why should we believe that Islam is the religion of truth, the religion that possesses the pure and final revelation?

The Ultimate Elsewhere

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—do they consider Islam. Whatever the reason, we perceive shortcomings in the religions of our exposure, and look elsewhere. And the ultimate “elsewhere” is Islam.

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.

The Final Revelation

We can’t navigate the twists and turns of this life without God’s guidance, and hence, He has given us guidance in the form of revelation. 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?

Ask yourself: why would God send another revelation if the preceding scriptures were still pure? . 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 Qur’an. It’s worth considering and looking into.
