In the name of Allah the Most Beneficent the Most Merciful,
Dear reader the central message of Islam is that Allah is the only deity worthy of worship.There is no God except Allah.The Oneness of Allah is the foundation of faith.Islam is unapologetic in its call to Monotheism.La ilaha ila Allah is the statement of faith.We as Muslims enter Islam by pronouncing it,live upon it and hopefully by the Mercy of Allah it will be the last statement we say before we die.
The proof of the Oneness of God is in us.What do we mean by that?All of us were born on a pure instinct that if not corrupted will bear witness to the Oneness of Allah.
In this ayah Allah swt opens our eyes to the miraculous signs around us that point to the reality of La Ilaha ila Allah.
إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلاَفِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَالْفُلْكِ الَّتِي تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِمَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ وَمَا أَنزَلَ اللّهُ مِنَ السَّمَاء مِن مَّاء فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الأرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَبَثَّ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ دَآبَّةٍ وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيَاحِ وَالسَّحَابِ الْمُسَخِّرِ بَيْنَ السَّمَاء وَالأَرْضِ لآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ
“Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.”
In all the above signs are clear proofs for the Oneness of Allah and His Mercy.
Dear reader, take some time to really reflect on all that is around you.Go to a park ,sit and just think.
Alhamdulillah(praise is due to Allah) who has guided me to the truth that is Islam.I bear witness that He alone is worthy of worship.We were created to Worship Allah.Dear Muslim the fact that you are blessed to say and live upon la ilaha ila Allah is a favor which is priceless.
As for you dear reader who is not yet Muslim,I urge you to seek guidance sincerely and Allah will guide you.Allah says in the Quran:
وَالَّذِينَ جَاهَدُوا فِينَا لَنَهْدِيَنَّهُمْ سُبُلَنَا وَإِنَّ اللَّهَ لَمَعَ الْمُحْسِنِينَ
“And those who strive for Us – We will surely guide them to Our ways. And indeed, Allah is with the doers of good.”Quran 29;69
Allah is our Lord.He created us to worship Him(I reiterate this point and probably will in upcoming posts due to its importance)His Mercy encompasses all things but His Punishment is severe.Beware.Do not be of those who will wish they had reasoned.Your alive.You still have a chance.Reason before its too late.
Asalaam aleykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.(Peace and mercy and blessings of Allah be upon you)
