    Never Delay Reverting to Islam!

    Report bad ads?

    Greetings all,

    Many people are already convinced that Islam is the truth but unnecessarily delay reverting and accepting the Shahada due to trivial matters. It is true that for many big decisions in life we must take our time and be sure that we are making the right decision. However when it comes to accepting Islam then if you already acknowledge the oneness of your Lord and that the Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is his last Messenger then this is all that is necessary to accept Islam and take the Shahada.

    It is critical that you do not delay in accepting the Shahada lest death overtakes because we do not know which moment will be our last. Death does not wait for anyone regardless of our situation or circumstances. Every person has an appointed time and fixed days in this life as God says in the Qur'an: "And for every nation is a [specified] term. So when their time has come, they will not remain behind an hour, nor will they precede [it]". [Quran 7:34].

    Our appointed time is written in the preserved record, and it does not change. Satan is the sworn enemy of man and he will give you many excuses to delay your Shahada. He will whisper to you many excuses: "You still have so much to learn, it's too early, what will your family say? What will your friends and colleagues think? What will people say, Islam is too hard etc".

    None of these excuses should prevent you from accepting Islam. For example learning about Islam is a continuous ongoing process for everyone of us. We can never know enough and we certainly do not need to go too in-depth in order to accept Islam. As long as we are aware of the basic fundamental principles of Islam then that will suffice for now.

    Also It matters not what anyone else thinks or says to you regarding your reversion to Islam. You will not be responsible for them on the day of Judgement not will they be to you. It will be every person for themselves on that day. That day will be a day of regret for many of us. It maybe that the people around us will either accept our decision straight away or it may take them a while for it to sink in. We can pray Allah soften their hearts for our acceptance of Islam. When your families, friends, colleagues and people around us see the positive changes that Islam brings to your lives then they too will become inclined to this beautiful religion as is the case with the families, friends and colleagues of many reverts.

    What can be more important than accepting and acknowledging your creator and beginning a beautiful relationship with him and getting to know him through his beautiful names. Surely the one who created us and knows us so much better than we know ourselves. He loves us and wants us to be closer to him and prioritise his pleasure over our desires so that we maybe saved from the fire and admitted to the eternal gardens of Paradise.

    Therefore as soon as you are certain in your heart that Islam is the truth then do not allow your enemy Satan to give you excuses to delay or not accept Islam. This is the most important decision that you will ever make which will effect you for eternity and Satan does not want your soul to be saved so he will try his best to ensure that you either delay for as long as possible or not accept Islam altogether.

    So ignore the whispers of your eternal enemy and take the Shahada immediately then you can proclaim it again in front of people or at the Masjid etc. This is so that you are not in danger of not being able to do so lest death overtakes you.

    So proclaim:

    In transliteration: Ashadu an la ilaaha illallaahu, wa ashadu anna muhammadan abduhu wa rasoolu.

    Th meaning is: "I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is his servant and messenger.

    The following short clip is an amazing reminder that we must not delay accepting Islam:

    Re: Never Delay Reverting to Islam!

    Indeed. Some people when inviting others to Islam making unnecessary big barriers:
    You have to do this, you have to believe that, you have to think so, and etc, when even majority of born as muslims don't follow that. Or imposing their sectarian views.

    For example:
    "You have to believe in angels.' But then explain what is an angel.
    "You have to pray 5 times a day." And if due to current circumstances, like job, person can not, he is forbidden now to embrace Islam?
    "You have to get circumcised."
    ...

    Shahada is enough to embrace Islam.
    The rest is up to you.
    There is no compulsion in Islam. (Sura 2 ayat 256)
