The Reverters to Islam
Dr. Munqidh Ben Mahmoud Assaqar
A CONSULTANT IN MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE
I fought the temptations to succumb to the term often used to describe those who have accepted or embraced Islam. To call these “converts” carries the idea that someone has been following a religion, yet at one stage of his life, crosses the floor to the other side of the house. In fact, it is not so. A human being according to God is born on the natural state of submission to the mighty Lord. It is his parents who will make him a Jew, a Christian or follower of any other belief or culture. At one time, I was thinking if I had been a 5000 year human; I would have been Jew, Christian then a Muslim consecutively. You see, according to the Quran, the book revealed to the Prophet of the Muslims, a man or a woman is born a natural Muslim. The change comes later influenced by immediate family circles and the environment surrounding that particular person. So, the matter isn’t a conversion to Islam, but a return to it after a lapse of time.
Anyway, this is a compilation of “exes” Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists, who have made a return to the original faith.
The author of this book is Dr. Mohammad Munqith Al-Sakkar a researcher, a writer and well-known religious debater. He authored the book titled: “Li hadha Aslamu.” He works as a researcher with the Muslim World League. He has favorably answered my request to translate some of those reverts to Islam.
Well, here is the translation depicting the experience of these selected people, and the transition they have made from their former faith to Islam. Generally, it wasn’t smooth sailing for some of them. Some have been hounded down, and others met with violent death. Others, have carved a niche for themselves, and have become well known scholars teaching in Islamic institutions of religious science. Men and women have pursued relentless efforts seeking the truth.
They have been rewarded with immense pleasure and inner peace of mind in this world.
After all, they have found their callings. Their only solace is their high expectation of the greatest reward of them all: obeying God, achieving His satisfaction and a ticket to paradise.
Allah is indeed generous with His servants; He won’t shortchange them. He is just and fair. He has said in the Quran; verse 21 Sura At-Tur: “And those who believed and whose descendants followed them in faith - We will join with them their descendants, and We will not deprive them of anything of their deeds.
Every person, for what he earned, is retained.”
