Become A Muslim Today.

Everyone considers him some kinda intellectual. The authority who speaks on behalf of Islam. Every one thinks he's a smart fella since he teaches comparative religion and all. You know, the kinda stuff modern, metropolitan, liberated and open-minded Malay Muslim like to talk on end so that people can say; oh, he's very knowledgeable, unlike the ustaz and the ulamak whose worldview is still locked in the 1st Hijrah period.
And so this open-minded Malay Muslim says in his blog that he's angry at the way the Muslims are reacting over a simple film called Fitna. He's angry because according to him, it has now become more difficult for him to defend Islam. You've heard that right. He considers defending Islam his full-time job.
Islam doesn't need anyone to defend itself against what the world has got coming its way. After 9/11 you'd thought the the non-Muslim wouldn't wanna have anything to do with Islam. But lo and behold. America is fast becoming a Muslim nation. The number of German men converting to Islam has been steadily increasing on monthly basis. Monthly an average of 25 people convert to Muslim at Birmingham mosque alone. Czech astronauts became Muslim. People in Alaska are turning Muslim in great numbers. Korean too are becoming Muslim. Holland is seeing a record number of its citizens becoming Muslims. Every where in the world, people are becoming Muslims. In U.S.A female Caucasians are becoming Muslim in greater number than male. Families are broken up because of this. A daughter or son becomes a Muslim, the parents got angry. After a couple of months, the parents themselves become Muslims.
Here in Malaysia, immigrants are becoming Muslims in large numbers that JAWI has to have a special Fardhu 'ain class for the converts. Malaysians in Kuala Lumpur are becoming Muslim at the monthly average of 1,250 per month. I don't have the numbers for Selangor and other states but I reckon the average is about the same.
Preachers, priests and atheists are becoming Muslims. More and more male and female Caucasians are becoming Muslims. Most of them are from the cream of the society. People who make big decisions. People who are very good at what they do.
America is afraid of OSAMA and so Allah sends OBAMA who is only a few steps away before he makes it to the white house. Who knows, once he becomes president, Allah will give him the hidayah to become Muslim. Anything can happen and as you know it, things happen in completely different way than you think it would. Just like 9/11, people thought with that kinda image, Islam wouldn't' stand a chance in America. But lo and behold, Islam is spreading faster than anything the world has ever seen before.
And so when someone made a film about Islam being a violent religion, you don't have to worry about it. That kinda film will only make people want to know more about Islam. Holland saw a great number of its citizens becoming Muslims after the cartoon episode. So really, Islam is capable to defend itself.
And Malaysia, my friend, is gonna be 100% Muslim nation. Better get used to the idea because in terms of numbers, you'd better do some maths to see for yourself if all this is the figment of my imagination. A priest's son from Sabah became a Muslim and he now is a respected ustaz whom I know personally. He is very much involved in the dakwa to help people convert to Muslim and he has been very successful.
All around you, people are becoming Muslims. I'm sure you know of friends who have become Muslims. I hope you too will become one today. Or tomorrow. Insya'Allah.

Salam bro,

Good posting! It is a fact that Allah s.w.t. has promised to protect His religion till a time only He knows when. Oft, we tend to forget that fact.

However, having said that, we should not allow people to say blatant lies about Islam. I'm not saying that we should take their scalps, but there must be a stand somewhere.

In the matter of Fitna, had some Muslims not voiced their disapproval, the video itself might have been buried under tonnes of information, disinformation and misinformation in the world wide web. Thus, the way I see it, in the greater scheme of things, the matter came to a 'visible' stalemate - 'visibly', nothing came out of it but the undercurrents show otherwise.

I am also reminded by a hadith I read quite sometime back and have forgotten the sanad. Perhaps, you may know it.

In the hadith: A group of people were on their way to Medina. Halfway through, it was time for Asr and halfway of the group stopped for prayers while the other half continued their way.

On reaching Medina well before Maghrib, the other that did not stop, perform their Asr prayers.

Then one of the men from the group that stopped mentioned it Rasulullah s.a.w. who then said "both of you (groups) are right. It can be done either way".

Relating to the topic at hand, I guess it means we each have a task on our hand as we believe it. Perhaps the wiser thing to do is to perform Istikharoh for a more definite and constructive way. Wallahualam.

This is the 1st post I read today, a Friday morning, and I am feeling real good. Anonymous is trying to insinuate something but I guess the word 'convert' scares him a lot.

Salam akhi Bergen:

Like Che'gu this is the first posting I read this morning.

Islam bashing will not stop. That is a fact that Muslims all over the world must know.

In the Quran it had been stated the the Nasrani and Yahudi will not redha on you untill you have followed their paths(not necessary their religions).

They know by coming out with something like Fitna or te caricature will only fan anger to the Muslims but they'll still do it coz they know the Muslims are weak and can't do anything except to hand out memorandums and do some street demo and boycotting. I stil believe despite our present weakness, we must show our displeasure in what ever way.

Broad daylight insults apart, there are many indirect ways that the Nasrani and yahudi are using to destabilise the Islamic faith amongst Muslims. It is done with great strategy that we don't even realise it and we will over time accept it as norm.
Then we will be less sensitive towards Islam.

It is a fact that many are turning to Islam and becoming good Muslims.

I think it is time we the so called born Muslim should think of becoming a Mukmin,today.

Salam Bergen. Inshaallah, the "nur" of Islam has proved to be not that easy to stop by its numerous distractors throughout the ages... its been 1,400 years and its still glowing... it will find its own way into the hearts of mankind... as the All-Mighty has said that with the dawn of Islam the TRUTH has been made clear from Kuffar... just like light and darkness...

salam,
a good different view. yes, muslims reaction to stupid things should not be confined to holding placards and shouting in front of the embassies only. there're other ways of harbouring our frustration. and for that muslims need to be a bit clever, even before taking any step. tit-for-tat is not always makes us wiser.
thx

Do you have the proof to support your statement that people are converting to islam by the droves? In USA, Holland,Korea?

Please quote your source or this is your fantasy.

For sure many muslims are afraid to convert as they would be living in fear or specifically the fear of the backlash , you know what I mean.

Do you think islam is 100% correct?

have you ever asked the right questions?

The muslim ppl always try to defend that Islam is the way of life and when ppl ask muhammad why did he marry aisyah when she was 9, he said she is already mature(baligh).

What mature? for god's sake she was just 9 years old girl!

That is pedophilia man!!
