Why I Choose to Become Muslim?
QUESTIONING MY FAITH
I seek protection to Allah from the temptation of Satan, the doom
In the name of Allah, the most gracious, and the most merciful
Hello, Friends. As promised, I should already publish this material few weeks ago, but my muse going away and I’m staying alone by myself with blank mind because of his disappearance. But he is back now and I’m saved, again :D. I’m so sorry for the delayed. So, let’s get started.
A few weeks ago, a Hubber, whom I respected for His fair and honest thought ask me this, “Did you found any moderate teaching in Islam?”I don’t answer him right the way at that time because I want to make sure that I have a proper answer to explaining my idea about Islam. I hope finally, I’m able to make a better explanation. But I want everyone understands this hub comes from my own founding, so the mistake inside is my flaws and mine only.
To answer the question above I should start from the core of my understanding of Islam. And because it will become a long article, I will divide it into few hubs. as you might realize while reading this, I’m not putting too much history facts on this Hub and before you said that my work not based on a good foundation of history, I need you to understand first; I’m not Historian. I think there are so many people who might be more eligible than me in that area, so I will stick in my usual way of writing. But I can guarantee you, I'm not speaking nonsense and the entire story about Muslim here based on history.
DO I LOSS MY MIND BY BECOMING MUSLIM?
If nonbeliever takes a single glance on Islam they surely will say:
Islam is too strict religion.
It put so many rules that limited human to live to their fullest.
It ritual seems like a cult for others and Muslim attributes made the believer seems different and weird.
The believer of Islam being isolated by our own will and locked by too many irrational ideas about worshipping Allah.
Not to mention Muslim way to reach heaven by using Jihad and killed nonbeliever without any regrets. Also the way the Men treated Women is worst.
Say that I’m wrong, but I’m sure some people will surely agree with above sentences; these are how is nonbeliever seeing Islam, right? Definitely weird and wrong, and make you afraid to be around the believers.
Did you ever think, why in these so not comfortable religion, we are all staying still, and living a happy life, and our number keep growing bigger and bigger, and many of them who raised the numbers of believers are came from converters? Why we love to being locked away from good life and freedom while we can see so many great achievements being achieved by nonbelievers in their freedom of life? Why the women like me stay in this religion where I’ll become an object of abuse by my dear future husband and allowing myself to be cheated by him inside polygamy? Did all of Muslim has lost mind? Are we just a bunch of crazy masochism people who love to hurt ourselves? Are we really?
“If you want to look further beyond your jail of faith, you will find there is an entire world you have never seen nor known out in the world, which provides you with everything that will satisfy your hunger for knowledge and life.” Many of my friends are telling me this. But, Dear friends are you sure?
Now, let me bring you to the journey inside my believing heart to see whether I’m real or I just a crazy woman from nowhere.
