Al Salaam Alaikum Brothers and Sisters
Especially in these times with so many barriers placed in front of Islam
and so many negative untruths spread about it, it is a great blessing
from Allah that He gives specific individuals the ability to see the
truth and light of Islam. A new Muslim—and, in fact, every Muslim—should
always be thankful to Allah that Allah has blessed him with this
ever-important knowledge and understanding of His religion.
By converting to Islam, the new Muslim has entered into a new realm that is most likely very different from his previous outlook on life. Perhaps most importantly though is that via Islam the individual has found the means by which the Lord will be pleased with him and he becomes pleased with his Lord.
As one grows more in Islam and as one’s knowledge and faith increases, the individual is able to appreciate more and more of its beauty. In turn, one’s love for Allah, Islam and the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) shall continue to increase. The result is a spiritual life on a very special plane that only those who know this faith are able to experience and enjoy.
There is a lot to look forward to. The embracing of Islam is the significant first step and the rest, Allah willing, shall come by increasing one’s knowledge, faith and attachment to Islam.
