Question: How sure are you of your belief, that Islam is the

true religion, the ultimate truth, and how would you explain

and try and convince someone that what you believe in is

logical and reasonable?

Answer: This is a very important question, and the explanation

has to stand up to the scrutiny of the skeptics, atheists, pagans

and the materialists, etc. Al-Humdulilah, (all praise belongs to

Allah) that he has given the answers to every question in His

Final Message to the humankind.


The Glorious Qur’an.

One has to read the Glorious Qu’ran personally to understand

the message. Remember that the Qur’an is explicit in stating:

There is no compulsion in religion. The right direction is henceforth

distinct from error


Qu’ran: 2:v256


Revelations originating from one source have to be consistent

and not change over whatever time span it took to reveal. That is

exactly what the Qu’ran states. Firstly, that a portion of the

message were given to various prophets over thousands of

years; and specifically names four revelations by name, as well

as the names of the prophets that it was revealed to. The Qur’an

embodies the full and complete message, as no other prophet

and revelation is to follow. That is what Jesus (pbuh) meant

when he said that he would pray to the father for another

comforter who will abide for all time. The four most important

revelations are:


The Taurah, (OldTestament) Law: revealed to

Prophet Musa, (Moses) (pbuh).


Zaboor, or the Psalms: revealed to Prophet Dawood,

(David) (pbuh).


The Injeel, (Good News) (New Testament) revealed to

Prophet Esa (Jesus) (pbuh).


The Qur’an, also known as the Fur’qaan, (Criterion)

revealed to Prophet Muhammed, (pbuh). The Qu’ran

embodies all of the above. Viz: The Law, The Praises
