Istanbul Tel: 90.212.454 3000-2- 3. WHY DID THEY BECOMEMUSLIMS INTRODUCTIONThe Islamic religion is the final religion and is therefore at thezenith of perfection. This fact is acknowledged even by(George) Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)[1], the well-known Irishwriter and critic, whose personal comments on Islam can besummarized as, Were we to choose a common religion for theentire world, it would definitely be the Islamic religion. Thisconclusion is quite natural. For the Islamic religion is the solereligion that has preserved its intact purity owing to thepromised protection against the interpolations suffered by allthe religious systems previous to it. Judaism, one of thegreatest monotheistic cults, had foretold about the advent of aMessiah. s alaihis-salm (Jesus) was hailed as the promisedMessiah, yet the Injil (Bible), the heavenly book of the religionhe spread, was lost. Later, various gospels were written in thename of Injil, and these new gospels, which were no more thaninterpolations themselves, were interpolated again and again.All these facts, along with various other portents, announcedthe coming of a final prophet, the real Messiah sall-Allhualaihi wa sallam. As a matter of fact, the name of this Messiahis literally written in the Gospel of Barnabas. Then, the Islamicreligion is the last, the most true, the most perfect religionwherein all the true religions converge and which, therefore,reflects the full approval of Allhu tal. A friend of ours,[namely, Dr. Nr Refet Korur], who had spent his entire youthamong Christians in Europe, said to us: I am a Muslim bornfrom Muslim parents. I spent my life in Europe, where I had thechance and time to study all religions and to compare them with[1]Shaws clever plays, e.g. Pygmalion, are based on faults in moralattitudes and in society.-3- 4. each other. If I had seen that another religion was superior toIslam, I would have given up Islam and accepted that religion.For there was no one to force me to remain a Muslim. Yet, allthe research and the comparative studies I carried on,reinforced by the debates that I, in the meantime, indulged inwith Christians, revealed the fact that Islam is by far superior toall the worlds present religions and that it is the only intact truereligion, so clearly that I became attached to Islam with all myheart.Sad to say, todays western world still accommodatesChristians who insist on the wrong and call Muslims heretics,idle-minded,devil-worshippers, irreligious. Thesemisconceptions are inculcated in the minds of Christian childrenby priests, whose real purpose is to distract their young andinquisitive brains. These interceptive activities are fed with theslanderous propaganda that the Islamic religion embodiesaspects disagreeable with modern civilization. The fact, on theother hand, is that Islam is the only religion suitable for todayscivilized world. Our book Islam and Christianity deals with andrefutes these misconceptions. In addition to English, wetranslated that book into French and German and sent thetranslated versions to countries all over the world. Thereby wetried to countermand the falsifications spread by priests andthus to state the actual facts. It did not take us long to see howappropriate and useful our work had been. No sooner had wedistributed the books to the world than they gave their fruits. Wereceived a letter from India, in which wrote an Indian Christian:When I read your book Islam and Christianity, I realized thatIslam is the true religion and I decided to become a Muslim.We have been receiving similar letters from young Africans.Anyone who has the opportunity to study the pure, clean,civilized and humane aspects of Islam will feel an irresistableattraction to this religion. The Islamic religion is spreading overthe world without any such media as propagation andorganization. On the other hand, the missionary organizationsbelonging to those countries whose primary objective is tospread Christianity are spending huge amounts of money andoffering various types of social aid, and yet achieving very littlesuccess in comparison with their tremendous efforts.Despite all this wrongfull and inimical volley of vituperationscarried on against Islam and all the stupendous efforts put forth -4- 5. for the spreading of Christianity, there has been an evergrowing increase in the number of Muslims on the earth. Laterahead you will find more extensive information on this subject.Some of these Muslims remained Muslims because they hadbeen born in Muslim families. However, besides these peoplethere are also people who accepted Islam although theirparents had been in other religions and they therefore had beengiven their family education in other religions. Among thesepeople are universally renowned diplomats, statesmen,scientists, scholars, men of letters, writers, and even men ofreligion. These people studied Islam well, admired itsgreatness, and became Muslims willingly. In addition to thesepeople, many other universally known celebrities met theIslamic religion with deep respect and admiration although theydid not officially become Muslims; they even believed in the factthat Islam is the true religion and did not hesitate to express thisbelief of theirs. Scientists, philosophers, and politicians, admiredby the entire world, first of all believe in the fact that Allhutal exists and is One and that He is the Creator of all beings.In this chapter you will find the statements and observationsbelonging to some of these celebrities.Among the people who accepted Islam, there may be thosewho became Muslims of necessity, for the sake of someadvantages, or for advertisement. For instance, a non-Muslimwoman may have accepted Islam without studying and learningIslam well for the purpose of marrying a certain man whohappened to be a Muslim, or an Indian pariah may have doneso in order to regain his lost civic rights. However, the fact thatwell-known scholars, scientists and writers accept the Islamicreligion only after a long observation bears a lofty import.Selections from the explanations given by these cultured peopleon why they abandoned their religions and embraced Islamhave been compiled from various sources and books and listedin the following pages. As you read them you will hear from thevery tongues of these respectable people why the Islamicreligion is superior to other religions. Perhaps a person whowas born a Muslim and has spent his life among Muslims istotally oblivious of these superiorities. Yet when a personbelonging to another religion studies Islam, he will see thedifference clearly and will admire Islam. In fact, reading theseexplanations will provide you with an opportunity to see and -5- 6. admire once again the high merits of our religion, and thus feeland offer gratitude to Allhu tal for having been Muslims.A conclusion drawn from all these explanations, in otherwords, a summary of the reasons why Islam is superior to theother religions, has been added in an independent chapter.We hold the belief that this work will give you freshinformation about the Islamic religion and will confirm onceagain that Islam is a great an
