A little knowledge with practice is better than much knowledge with no practice

Ever since my first contact with IslamiCity I have had nothing but positive and helpful feedback to any and all questions I have had about Islam and becoming a Muslim.

When I first found your website I had a strong affection in my heart for the way of Islam and was very thirsty for more knowledge. I requested some free literature and a Sister named Bibi called me to offer any help she could. It was so very nice to finally talk to a person instead of reading a book or article, and our talk was very encouraging. I told her of my doubts and of my sincere search for an understanding of Islam that would help me make the right decision about taking the Shahada. She said I should most definitely be sure in my heart and have no doubts about my declaration of faith. A few days later I received some pamphlets and a Qur’an (translation).

A few days later I talked to Ahmed from the Islamic Information Desk at IslamiCity, who shared with me the basics of Islamic faith. I had so many questions about what I had been reading over the past few months and about the literature, and he was very helpful and encouraging. In the beginning of our conversation he said something that really made the whole difference in my decision "A little knowledge with practice is better than much knowledge with no practice."

You see I wanted to know how to do everything perfectly before I took the Shahada. We spoke often over the next three days and I truly felt God working to bring me closer to Islam. At the end of the third day Ahmed and some of the other people at IslamiCity gathered around the speaker phone to bear witness as I pronounced the Shahada. I felt as if something gently entered into my soul, no big flash of light or anything like that but something gentle and real, it was so subtle yet has proved to be so powerful. The way I view the world and the people and creatures in it and my interactions with them. And on a deeper level than that my thought process is steadily transforming.

Life has a new meaning for me and I can feel it gradually increasing. The most powerful thing about all of this is that it is ever so gently changing me, and I feel as if Allah is constantly guiding me.

Thanks to all of your efforts I am now a Muslim and am so proud and grateful that God choose to guide me, truly He knows best. You should all be proud of your efforts if it weren’t for you I would still be questioning Islam instead of living Islam, which is what it’s really all about. Again thank you all so much and may Allah guide us all, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar!

Jason of Kentucky took his Shahada at IslamiCity in March 2002.

  1. Here’s wishing Jason well on his journey. I first declared my faith in my twenties, nearly forty years ago, and every day since I have learned more. Islam has become central to my life, and I can wish the same for Jason, insha’llah.

  2. I truly envy you that God has shed its light on you. God has chosen you among the rest of the believers. You must indeed feel very lucky. I have been a Muslim all my life. We tend to take that for granted. Most of the Muslims in my country are borned being a Muslim. I see many Muslims who claimed that they are Muslims but their character and way of life does not depicts one. It is clearly that God has opened your heart to Islam. But for those who are borned a Muslim does not see or felt that special feeling. Maybe that was why many Muslims in my country living that way. Jihad in my country in not so much of showing the non-Muslim the true religion but to make borned-Muslim realize that they are indeed very lucky.

  3. Congratulations ( Mubarak) Jason…may Allah continue to bless you and may you always have the Light of Islam in your heart and Allah’s Guidance before you. Ameen!

    Take care,

    Sr. Calara Hardin

  4. I would like to congratulate Brother Jason for having taken the Shahada. May Allah give him all the strength to follow the Islamic path. Please convey my heartiest congratulations to him.

  5. THIS WAS A VERY INTERESTING ARTICLE TO ME BECAUSE I CAN RELATE TO JASON’S FEARS PRIOR TO HIS TAKING THE SHAHADA. IF IT IS POSSIBLE I WOULD LIKE TO RECIEVE THE SAME INFORMATION YOU SENT TO HIM VIA MAIL. MY ADDRESS IS AS FOLLOWS, BRO.CELESTE MORRISON, 1210 SUTTER AVENUE#5B, BROOKLYN NEW YORK, 11208.

  6. Jason, I read your story, and reflected upon myself. I am 40, and have studied Islam for many years, as well as other faiths. But, have been “frozen” in place. I defend Islam, I educate others about this faith of God, but have been some how frozen from taking the shahada. Maybe it was all the “Jesus” brain washing I went threw as a child in need of something to hold onto as a child, and young man. You make me look at myself threw different eyes.

    I to live in Kentucky, and there is not really a very big Islaimc community here. Maybe I would do better with one, but I am stuck here for now.

    But, maybe I will call the number you did to lake my Shahada.

    Thank you for writing your story, it has made me wake up, and take a good hard look at me.

    Salaam,

    Bob.

  7. My eyes filled up after reading your experience with Islam. Allah has really chosen you to come to this patch, Praise be to Allah. I am a born muslim still struggling with my life and practising the Islamic faith in Canada. I hope Allah keep guiding you in this journey of light. May Allah bless you and your family, Allahu Akbar!, indeed.

  8. As-salaam walaikum, Alhamdullilah that you and others are seeing the truth of Islam. I hope that new Muslims will add a fervor to revive the Islamic way of life. Salam.

  9. I wish to congratulate the brother jeason kentucky for taking the shahada. may Allah strenghten him in iman and work towards the upliftment of islam and you at the islamicity may the almighty Allah reward you aboundantly. ma’assalam.

  10. Allahu Akbar!!Subran’Allah!!! Allah comes to us anywhere in this earth and by so many ways….That is always a great news to hear of someone saying the “shahada” , it is an extream great feeling. So, May Allah bless all moslems and gives us paradise. May He, protect us from this “donia” and but us in the right path (away from shirk and bidaa). My salam to you all.

  11. As Salaamul Alaykum, to all my sisters and brothers. May Allah, the All Hearing and All Knowing be the One and only God you turn to in good times and bad, Ameen.

    Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar!!

    Congratulations to Brother Jason of Kentucky, may allah accept your prayers and guide the whole mankind to the right path. It is always heartening to hear from soneone reverting to islam.

    -Imran

  13. congrtulations jay!…i read the comments of the other bro from kentucky…who is also interested in taking shahada…u have to keep in mind when you enter islam..u don’t have to leave jesus behind or moses behind..for they all are beloved prophets in islam…in fact there is a whole passage in quran about Mary(maryam)…and the miraculous birth of jesus and his story.

    jesus(pbuh) is mentioned 30 times in the quran more than prophet muhammed(pbuh) who is mentioned 4 times…To be a muslim you have to believe in oneness of Allah and his messengers and their teachings…

  14. Bism’Allah al Rahman al Raheem,

    Congratulations and welcome to the beautiful world of Islam. May Allah (SWT) bless you and guide you through your life and in every step you take. Your story gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes. Again, God bless. Words cannot express the happiness I feel when I hear stories like yours.

    Congratualtions and may Allah (SWT) be with you and all muslims in the world.

  15. AS-SALAAM-ALAIKUM, I WOULD FIRST LIKE TO THANK ALLAH FOR HE IS THE GIVER OF ALL THAT IS KNOWN IN LIFE AND THE KNOWER OF ALL THINGS. SECONDLY I BEAR WITNESS THAT THEIR IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH AND THAT THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD IS HIS MESSENGER! RECENTLY I READ YOUR ARTICLE “A LITTLE KNOWLEDGE WITH PRACTICE IS BETTER THAN MUCH KNOWLEDGE WITH NO PRACTICE” AND I WAS INSPIRED TO CONTACT ISLAMIC CITY VIA E-MAIL. I WAS CONTACTED BY A KIND BROTHER BY THE NAME OF AHMED WHO WAS MENTIONED IN THE ARTICLE I HAD READ. I WAS SHOCKED AT HOW FAST HE RESPONDED TO MY E-MAIL. NONETHELESS WE HAD A VERY GOOD CONVESATION ABOUT ISLAM. BROTHER AHMED WAS VERY HELPFUL AND ENLIGHTING TO ME IN REFERENCE TO ISLAM AND TE THINGS I DID NOT UNDERSTAND. HE WAS WARM, CARING, AND VERY PATIENT. TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, I ACCEPTED ISLAM AND TOOK MY SHAHADDA. I AM NOW A MUSLIM AND VERY VERY HAPPY(ALLAH-U-AKBAR). BROTHER AHMED EXPLAINED TO ME THE PILLARS OF ISLAM, THE MISCONCEPTIONS OF THOSE WHO DONT KNOW ISLAM AND VARIOUS OTHER THINGS ABOUT ISLAM AND I TRULY BELIEVE THAT ISLAM IS THE TRUE RELGION OF GOD(ALLAH). ONCE AGAIN I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALLAH FOR HIS GRACIOUSNESS, AND BENEFIECENCE AND HIS BRINGING ISLAM INTO MY LIFE. I ALSO THANK HIM FOR THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD(PEACE BE UPON HIM). I ALSO WOULD LIKE TO THANK BROTHER AHMED FOR HIS KIND WORDS AND HELP IN MY BECOMING A MUSLIM. I WILL ALWAYS BE GREATFUL TO HIM AND ISLAMIC CITY. AS-SALAAM-ALAIKUM, MR.CELESTE E MORRISON, BROOKLYN NY.

  16. Congratulation brother Jason. You are very lucky that Allah Subhana wa Taala is very kind to you, and He is guiding you in the right path. I am very much absorbed how Allah made your heart full of devine light. I myself also feel like you but can not hold it for long because of greedyness of the material world. Please pray for me. I pray to Allah SWT to keep your heart always clean and simple; ameen.

    let us pray ALLAH so that He includes us into that group AAMIINE

  18. In the name of Allah the most merciful,

    Reading your article makes me proud to be Islam.

    I was born as Muslim and sometimes I take Islam for granted – What I mean is ,we don’t much appreciate what God have given us.But people out there have to search for the truth and not many yet got the “Hidayah” , only the choosen ones.U must be considered very lucky and much thanks to Allah that have shown U the true path.The first have done yet the journey is still long.Hold to Islam – “Istiqamah” thru’ out your life until death comes.

    Nothing much else to say – “Oh Allah please forgive us for not doing the Dakwah as we suppose to do to those unbelievebers”

  19. ALLAAHU akbar..ALLAAHU akbar..masha ALLAAH

    Congratulations, brother/sister in Islam..ALLAAH guides whoever He wishes to His way…and Insha-ALLAAH you are one of them.

    your sister in Islam

  20. Mashallah, welcome brother. And may the almighty guide you in to the straight path as he is right now and may he make you prosper in this life and in the hereafter. Asalamucalykum

  21. I love your website and i appreciate that somebody took the time to make one. I am Jia and I would really appreacite if you guys coul tell me the basic rules of Islam. I am already a Musilm but I feel that i don’t know very much about my own religion i would really like it if you guys could email me at ambatar@msn.com and mail me some ofthe basic rules of Islam, Thank You

  22. Allaah’U Akbar

    May Allah (swt) bless you all in your efforts that enlighten this dark world with the light of Islam.

    May all of us (muslims) learn from our reverted brothers and sisters, to hold on to the deen of Allah (swt) more strongly and practice what we preach.

  23. Alhamdulillah,ISLAMICITY manage to bring MUSLIMS all over the world together.InsyaALLAH we shall be as one in relieving our BROS n SISS who were attack n ill treated by those kafirun aggression.ALLAHHUAKBAR.

  24. dear islamicity editor,

    i hope you can enhance your website by revealing some picture about our brothers in palestine and other places we muslims have been discriminated.

    i think that’s a good way to increase the support from other muslims as they can see the truth thing in their own eyes.

  25. As-salaam ‘Alaykum, Masha’Allah I was so pleased to read your article brother Jason. It really warmed my heart and made me cry. May Allah (ta’ala) strengthen our imaan and make us worthy servants of Him (ta’ala). Ameen. As-salaam ‘Alaykum.

  26. Allah Akbar,

    Its great to hear someone could reason about Islam at a time when many atrocities are being done in the name of Islam.

    May Allah continue to guide our beloved brothers aright.

    Thanks to the islamicity, may Allah continue to strengthen you. Amen.

  27. Enjoy, brother; and may Allah ease it all the way for you and for the rest of our family, which is facing dificulties now but that’s not new. Our family has stood like a rock (this is the proverbial rock) throughout the ages. And, as Allah promised, Islam will reign over, and dominate, all other religions, for Allah Most High is best to keep his promise. Assalmu Alaikum wa Rahmatu’llah wa Barakatuh

  28. Islam is really the religion based on nature and Muslims should always endeavour to learn about it and whatever they learn they should practice it in their lives. This would strengthen their faith and will provide then the unlimited blessings from Allah SWT.

    Islamicity.com is doing a great job in this respect; may Allah SWT shower upon you all his blessings at all times Aameen.

    With kind regards,

    Masoud Ali Khan.

  29. Salamu Aleikum,

    May Allah give you reward for the work of da’wa (calling into Islam). I am a muslim living in Grand Rapids, MI. If there are new muslims in my area that you are aware of, I will be glad to be of help as much as I can. Please let me know. Wassalaamu Aleikum.

  30. Alhamdulillah.You are a real winner who is loved by Allah.Convey this truth to other brothers who are not able to attain this golden chance.May the Almighty bless you and your f amily.

    ASSALAMUALAIKUM VA RAHMATHULLAHI VA BARAKATHUHU.

  31. Asalam o Aliekum! Its wonderful to know that you feel guided by Allah and are happy by your conversion. May Allah Bless you and May He Guide us always to the right path and May He Forgive us for our sins and bring all us Muslims together as one brotherhood which we have ceased to be of late. I wish you will in your life and I hope the light of Islam spreads further and brings peace to more souls. Allah hu Akbar!

  32. How perfect a time for me to read this article as I myself have this deep need to know how to do everything before I, myself take the Shahada..but you see I feel in my heart that I am being lead to believe in the truth .. and I feel the need now to take this moment to thank Jason for sharing his feelings and hope I have been able to express how much “a little knowledge with practice is better than much knowledge with no practice” has gotten me a bit closer to Allah and all his truth .. Thank You

  33. Your website profoundly impacts my life. I live in rural Georgia where there are no Mosques, no Muslims that I am aware of, and literally no one to talk to about Islam. But each time I click on the adhan and al-salat, and hear the holy sounds of faith, I turn inward, with increased humility, to the place where Allah holds me captive. Al hamdullilah.

    Thank you for your website. Maassallaam.

  34. assalamualaykum

    my brother and sister of islam i just want to say the story i read was heart touchin becasue it happen to me i converted into becomin muslim and i want to say alhamdulilah for this i feel much better with myself and i would not change this religion for nothing god bless all the muslim of the world allahu arkbar and i want to know where i can find a sister or brother that i can talk with that can teach me more on becomin the best muslim i can be god bless u all massalama

  35. In-sha-Allah I will become a member of Islamcity. My wish for the world is to see it in peace and harmony, where every one will live with one another, which is the aim of Islam but,most don’t understand.Soon you will hear from me,by the grace of Allah.Bis-salam.

  36. Your including the story of a recent American convert was interesting and welcomed. I would appreciate hearing more about recent cconverts like myself. I am reired from the Foreign Service of the U.S. State Department. In 1966. I took a seminar at the Foreign Servic Institue in prepartion for posting the the Middle East. The seminar included the study of Islam. I spent 4 years living and working in Iran and Turkey. So I was familar with Islam. When the tradegy of 9/11 occured, I knew that was a religion of peace and I began a study of Isam, this not an academic one but a personal and spiritual one. One month later, I made Shadahah at the Islamic Center in Washington D.C, Alham dililah. I had been a Christian all my lfke and an Orthodox priest for 27 years. After my conversion, I have felt closer to God than ever before in my life. I thank Allah for bringing me to the truth and beauty of Islam. Now I am retired. I cannot drive and have no car. Tho’ I live in a city with many Muslims, I am somewhat isolated. Would there be any way that I could find an experienced Muliam who could guide me in my growth in Isam by e-mail. Zaahid Bilal

  37. ASAK,

    I am very happy after reading the mail which I received from islamicity, this is a first mail which I read today before starting other work and it is a week start day.

    Convey my regards to all who’s are putting efforts for spreading the Islam and clearing the deoubts about the Islam which is situated in others heart ( Kaphir).

    I am prying to Allah that he can give the same Hidayat to all Muslim to spread the Islam. (Ameen)

  38. Heartfelt congration to Mr. Jason on embracing Islam.His story is really inspiring and heart moving, as you have said.We are sure once Mr. jason is able to read and understand arabic -text of the Holy Qur’an, he would soon discover for himself in what a sublime way and words the Jesus Christ,Mary, Moses Ibraham and all other prophets

    (peace and blessings of Allah be upon all of them)

    have been praised and glorified and so do the last Messanger of Allah, Muhamamad(peace and blessings be upon him).

    our best wishes for Mr. Jason.

  39. Assalamu Aleikum wa Rahmatu Allahi wa Barakatuhu

    Dear Sir, I would like to ask you to provide me some e-mail address of Islamic preacher or organization in Brazil, either in a city Santos or Sao Paolo.

    Thanks in advance,

    Assalamu Aleikum

  40. Thank you for your regular mails. This article on practise what you know was very good and very inspiring indeed. I have forwared your article to many of my friends and collegues.

  41. Thank you for sending me the Islamic bulletins. It indeed enriches my heart and gain knowledge. Now, I have been grappling with some Don’ts of Islam. PLease could you help me to clarify? It is regarding “Parda” or covering for a muslim woman. Please also send or inform me of references. I am proud to be a muslim and want to devote myself. But it is not easy! May Allah help me and all the muslims in the world– Ameen.

    regards. Shaila

  42. Bismillahi-Rehmani-Rahim

    It is really exiciting that you have opened you have opened a phoneline service with which we can solve our quries Please tell the Phone Number also the way how I can give donation to your website

    Thankyou

  43. I have been regularly following your website with enthusiasm, and pray Allah to accept your deeds in this regard and bless all my brothers engaged in this noblest effort.

    In today’s bulletin I have one observation to make. As my new brothers recalls his interaction with Islamicity, he says the first response came to him was from Bibi. Ofcourse my sisters have a crucial role to play in this activity, but interaction with men is not acceptable in any way (with due apologies). By surpassing Allah’s command we can not reach our goal.

    I wish the Islamicity and my brothers and sisters associated with it, all the success in this world and the world here after.

  44. Assalamualikum. I rececive emails from the Islamic City. It was good to hear non-muslims entering to become a muslim. Later when I went down I saw this saying to be a member. Then i clicked there so i can be a memeber of Islamic City. But there was the problem, need to pay money. I just wanna say something if you are having people to pay money to be a member it is fine, ok, Alhamdulilah. I hope you use it in the use of Allah (S.W.T). But i am a teenager, i cant pay so much and you will be losing the membership of we teenagers.

  45. Your site is vety interesting and educational one. I like to read your article from time to time. However i was wondering if some one can actually learn to read the Quran through the internet? continue your good work and may Allah Bless you all Jaza Kalla. bye

  46. your articles are extremely inspiring.Alhamdolillah.Islamic City performs so succinctly and to the point in delivering the message, that you have not to fear anyone because you are protected by the Almighty-Insha Allah.

    As Allah S.W.T. says in The Holy Quran ” invite people to the path of Allah “(submission, salvation ,peace within yourself ,peace with His creation).And we have been urged to invite with hikma(wisdom)and to speak with gentle persuasion ( devoid of any force or aggression)to deliver the message of Peace and sanctity and to Trust in Allah S.W.T and to declare our Imaan or Trust with uttermost conviction.When I log into your site I find I am sharing a bondhood with my brothers and Sisters and feel so confident in identifying myself as a momeen and be part of this group that has embarked in inviting mankind to peace and respect each other. We may all have some differences in our opinions but we do not lose sight of the big picure. That is our unflinching submission to the Creator and belief in His noble Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (peace be upon him and all the prophets of Allah S,W.T.

    Please carry on the good work. Islamicity is a role model of Islam.Baarakallah fikum. your brother in Islam Mahmoud Khan.Sydney Australia.

  47. I really appreciate the work islamicity is doing, am happy i was born a muslim, but didnt know much about my religion until i got islamicity, plis enlighten even those who are already muslims to strengthen there faith in Allah each and everyday Wasalam

  48. We muslims tend to concentrate alot on our lives and forget our relationship with nature, the world around us, especially the creatures and plants,environment , plis make more articles on how muslims should conduct themselves with the nature that Allah has provided us with, most of us ignore that and mistreat the animals and plants and our environment,Wasalam

  49. algamoelilaah, to the brother, may Allah (swa)bless him abundantly.i have a single request and that i si would like to know if it is possible for you to get me an english copy of the Quraan?see i have a friend that took shahadah earlier this year and practices islam very well, the only problem is that it is difficult for us to obtain an english copy of the Quraan for her. can you please let me know if it is possible for you to get one for her?

    shukran jazeelan ismail mookadam

  50. All i can say is Alhumdulilah. May Allah reward all of you for the effort that you are putting in and may you all be rewarded with the highest position in Jannah. AsalamuAlaikum.

  51. Bismillaahirrahmaanirrahiem

    Assalaamu’alaikumwarahmatullaahiwabarakaatuh

    With the Grace of Allah Swt, I am so happy now to be part of IslamiCity and many other Muslim organisations which I am one of their life members. Hope that we can remind ourselves to continue to learn about Islam and call others to Islam plus at the same time note that Allah Swt is the one who dictates. We are only following His orders in the way shown by Rasullullah Saw. The rest we leave it to Allah Swt the most gracious and most merciful.

    If we have any disputes always come back to the source which is the Al Qur’an and the As Sunnah. The best amongst us the the one with the best of Akhlaq (Morals)

    May Allah Swt continue to guide us till we meet Him with ease in His promised Jannah with Rasullullah Saw

    Wassalaamu’alaikumwarahamtullaahiwabarakaatuh

  52. I CONGRATULATE YOU FOR THE EFFORTS YOU HAVE INVESTED WITH JASON TO BRING HIM TO ISLAM. THE MAIN MISTAKE THAT MUSLIMS PRACTICE IS THAT THEY EMBRACE EVERYONE WHO CLAIM TO BE A MUSLIM AS A TRUE MUSLIM. IT IS OUR OBLIGATION TO ENCOURAGE OTHERS WHO CLAIM TO BE INTERESTED IN ISLAM AND HELP THEM TO BECOME MUSLIMS. WE MUST NOT FORGET THAT THROUGH HISTORY THOSE WHO MOSTLY DESTROYED ISLAM AND MUSLIMS ARE THE ONES WHO CLAIM TO BE SO.

  53. may ALLAH guide all muslims to follow our religion the right way AMEEN. May ALLAH guide us so that we convey the message of ISLAM in the right words AMEEN.May ALLAH bless and protect Islamicity for spreading and sharing the knowledge of a great religion AMEEN.

  54. Im very proud to read those comment about islam.Islam who means peace,love,is not undrestand by many people.Thanks God,some people find the wright way.May God bless all of us and provide peace in our word.

    SAlam

  55. This is a useful bulletin to be read by all the Muslims out there. So that they realize that Islam is a true religion which will lead them to sacrifice on this only pathway of truth. I am really touched when reading this article as I realize that I am not yet being a good servant of Allah. He (Jason) was very lucky as Allah had sent him the ‘barakah’ upon him. He had choosen by Allah to convert into Islam. Congratulationm to him.

    I would like to request from the Islamicity to sent me the appropriate article regarding how to be a good Muslim and how should I act towards developing an Islamic character. Thank you for sending me this valuable article and congratulations to Islamicity.

  56. we have to be aware that the chief satan ( america & isreal )agenda is to paralyse islam at any cost and use propanganda idea to brain wash our so called islamic leader in the area of of economic, so please don’t weaken our mind and prepare for the no ending wars with the satan, they will kill all the arab, then move to indonesia , malaysia ,africa and are we going to wait and being kill, ask ourself this simple question , we are not born to be terroist , but we are made to be a fighter and defends islam at any cost.please don’t let the palestine sufer alone , please , what is the arab doing ? this message is to all the arab ( you are rich , but you weak )asl

  57. Assalamo Alaikum

    I am delighted to read the story. In a deep dark, a small shine of hope through courageous efforts. The need of the hour to clear away the miscnceptions being cooked some wasted interests. I pray to the Allah for the help and guid.

    Fi aman-Allah

  58. I think that this months issue was very interesting. It makes me feel happier that some else has become a muslim.

    Thank you all at Islamicity for providing your services.

  59. Initially I want to be a part of the support network, I need information about what I need to do in spreading the truth and later I will see what else I can do.

  60. I am a converted for about 40yrs and also married to a muslim with 2 children.I strongly believed that as a muslim we must attend and upgrade ourself in Islam knowledge.As with the ilmu we learned we can become a stronger person

    in life and managing ourself with the help of ALLAH.MAHA SUCI ALLAH.SUBHAAN ALLAH.

  61. I was just reading the story of Jason from Kentucky who has recently converted to Islam. I could relate to much of his story. I have recently required a thirst for knowledge about Islam. I have dear friend who is Muslim and every time he spoke of his religion, I become very curious. The more he talked, I was amazed at the fact that many of the Islam beliefs, had been the way I had believed for so long, but did not know why……Where I live, there are no Muslims, no Mosques. I could not even obtain a copy of the Quran.

    I started visiting many Islamic sites, I ordered a translation of the Quran and have been studying.

    I find that I am changing and becoming aware of life around me, that my heart is changing, how I look at life is changing. My heart and my mind are embracing Islam, I can feel God directing me, guiding me, even guiding me to surah’s to show me the Straight Way. Like Jason, I want to have practice before I say the Shahada, because I want to have no doubts about my faith. Glory be to Our Lord the Almighty! May Allah, bless us all! I am so grateful for my friend and I am so grateful for Allah, Most Merciful, for showing me the truth after all these years….

  62. Salaam, felt really good after reading this article. As a Muslim totally ignorant about Islam, today I felt left behind in almost every field of life. I want to be a good muslim,to find peace & satisfaction from life & also to set examples for people of my age & generation. I need help! I am twenty years old and dont know anything about Islam, I have not completed Quran yet and much more. I dont know what to do? where to start? & how to learn & practice Islam better. I am in seroius need of advice from anyone who can help me get started to be a good muslim. I am also willing to pursue a career in some islamic field or something where I can serve my community better. Any information on this topic is also helpfull. Thank you for your time & any information regarding this matter is greatly appriciated.

    I must say more grease to your elbows, you are doing a wonderful job. Continue relentlessly in your endeavor to educate the public the only one and only way of life i.e, ISLAM. Allah in His Infinite mercy would continue to guide and protect you. Especially now that the religion of Islam is potrayed as a “terrorist” religion. America, Europe and the rest of the world need to be well aware of the fact that the deliberate efforts they put in trying to paint Islam/Muslims ‘black’. is a complete waste of time. They should channel their resources to the benefit of mankind in research and development.

    May Allah come to the rescue of His beloved servants.

  66. it is a very nice site to learn more abt islam.sir i request u to kindly update me as to how islam started to spread from its birth till now and abt the history of the prophets.

    i will be highly obliged to u if u do me this favour.

  67. ALLAHU AKBAR! ITS SO GOOD TO HEAR OF SUCH LANDMARK CONVERSIONS.MY HOPE AND PRAYER IS THAT OUR KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTISE OF THE PEACEFUL RELIGION(ISLAM)WILL BE SO WIDESPREAD,THAT PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD WILL KNOW FOR SURE THAT “YES,THIS IS THE RELIGION THAT CANNOT BE COMPARED TO OTHER RELIGION “WITH THAT KIND OF IDEA IN THEIR MINDS,I BELIEVE IT WILL SPURN MORE PEOPLE CLOSER TO LEARN MORE.AND FROM THERE ONWARDS,CHANGES WILL DEFINATELY HAPPEN(BY ALLAHS GRACE).ALLIHAMDULILAHI FOR JASON FOR HE HAS DEFINATELY MONED INTO A FOLD OF PEACE NO MATTER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.IT SURELY GOES A LONG WAY.MA-SALAM.

  68. Alhamdulillah,

    You are doing a great job on net by spreading the message of Allah. It gives me and fellow muslims a great pleasure to read or hear of Non-Muslims embracing Islam. I can only pray to Allah Taala that He may keep you grantind success in your mission,

    Aameen.

    Your brother,

    M. Sharifullah Khan

  83. Salam-I am just hungry for deeper spiritual level

    in this religion of Almighty Allah. You see for certain reason I don’t understand, all my life has always been struggling with no success and at 45 now it boders me a great deal. It makes me lost focus on certain thing-like time to learn Quran in great deal, I’ve been looking for job now for about two years-I have a Son one year old and we’re expecting another child by start of March. You see, I am troubled and I really need great counseling now-because I doubt myself now that I cannot provide for my family in the land of plenty. But I am very optimistic that Almighty Allah will come trough for me. Keep up the good work for this wonderful website.

  84. Assalamu Alaykum..

    Islamic religion contitutes various sects some of which

    are regarded as deviated from the right path.

    My troubling questions that seek immediate answers are:

    1. What are those deviated sects?

    2. Is there any authoritative world Mulsim body that is responsible to issue declaration about particular Islamic sect as devaited?

    Wasalam

    (Ishaaq)

  88. Assalamu Aleikum

    I would like to say CONGRADULATION for being a muslim.Our world has thirsty of islam,to make such

    da’awa is expected from every muslim in every

    means so I would like to admire Bibi for her interest to help him.

  89. Its not just a website, its a wonderfull islami

    site to us, i congratulate Mr.Jason thats has

    come-up wth help for others and made such

    an indespensiable view for UMMA and Others

    too. Thanks

  90. Assalamu Alaikum,

    Mr. Jason C-O-N-G-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S. Mashallah, Al hamdullilah. Mr. Jason Islam is Allah’s property and He guides whom ever He wishes into islam. There are so many actions and expressions of resentment directly and indirectly targeted at discrediting islam which is quite making impact even among muslims, in fact, some muslim feel shy or cut corners feeling inconfident when they hear or read about one of such slights. But one fact still remains that guidance is a prerogative of Allah and He bestow it on whom He pleases. No matter what they says or does, I know my religion more than them and even no about their religion more than most of them.

    So, Mr. Jason be prepared and resolute. Test are abound in islam but with faith every experience will come to pass except good deeds.

    May Allah continue to shower His guidance and mercy on us, ameen.

    Stay blessed

  91. Alhamdulillah. Congratulations, Jason. Dawaa is not a preaching for the purpose of converting anyone. As you have come to find out, it is an “invitation to a feast” – the feast is Islam and it is a glorious feast, especially for those who reflect. It makes all Muslims happy not to see “increasing ranks in the numbers”, but to see “increasing numbers of hearts being filled from the feast.” This is true joy we feel when we learn of others who are enjoying the same peace and joy, too.

  92. Keep up the good work May Allah guide many othes jasons to the real faith. Jason himself can light the torch of guidance to many of his friends and family members. May Allah reward you all for the great service for Islam

  93. bismilahi raman roim.

  95. Alhamdulillah, Allahuakbar, InshaAllah!! Nothing in this world is impossible with Allah!! For he is All-Wise and All-Knowing, so always make duwaa’to the Almighty Allah to increase ur little knowledge with his help, do ur utmost best and let Allah do the rest for you.InshaAllah!! For verily:”ALLAH IS MOST GRACIOUS, MOST MERCIFUL”…

  96. Mashallaah Hearing this news has made my soulof today more stronger all i can say is I`ll pray for you to be guided bu Allaah ta`la the greatest

  97.
