Are we pretending to believe?

“A belief in God would demand one hundred percent obsessive devotion, influencing every waking moment of this belief on earth. But four billion so called believers do not live their lives in that fashion, except for a few. The majority believe in the usefulness of their beliefs-an earthly and practical utility- but they do not believe in the underlying reality.”

Who is Prophet Muhammad (s.a.w.)?

This post recalls how I came to accept and love Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w) as a Messenger of God, even though I’ve only known Jesus all my life.

How I Came to Islam

Is it not amazing that God, our Maker, knows us so well that his way of communication is so unique to each of us? And who are we to judge on the path He has chosen to lead us to? This is my story of my journey to, and with God.

I Was Not Born to Sin, I was Born Pure.

Finally found something that resonates with my own beliefs. By accident. While I was half asleep. God works in wonderful ways.

Which Journey Would You Choose?

Yesterday was really interesting. I talked to 2 friends, each of different faith experiences, and both told me their own unique spiritual journeys. I guess I’d been putting off something I should have started long ago since I knew I was heading that way.

If God’s Laws are Perfect, Why Would He Change Them?

One of the topics that was always on my mind was the ‘cancellation’ of rules from the Old Testament, specifically the ones God set and delivered through Moses. Who determines which we are to follow? Why don’t we follow so many of those rules?

Wanting to Fear God

Somehow I was never God-fearing. This word never made sense to me, because I was taught that Jesus saved us from our sins, and eventually God’s love for us will forgive us unconditionally. So what was there to ‘fear’?
