The Benefits Of Becoming A Muslim by Lukgaf(m): 2:51pm On Apr 07, 2019
This article is designed for who wish to become Muslim. as to what would be their benefits after accepting Islam. It should be stated here that we are not trying to entice people to become Muslim, nor are we trying to convert them into the fold of Islam. Any person who wishes to become a Muslim should recognize that he or she will get all these benefits and much more. However, he or she should realize that they have to earn them by practicing the teachings of Islam. Implementing the practice of Islamic teachings is as important as believing.

Ahmad H. Sakr, PhD lists some of the benefits to be earned and enjoyed by those who wish to become Muslim as follows:

1. As far as the Creator (whose proper name is Allah) is concerned, you will be able to identify Him and get to know Him, His role and your relationship to His names, you will be able to communicate with Him any time, 24 hours a day, throughout the whole year. As a result of this category, you will be able to know your origin, your roots and the wisdom as to why you are on this planet. You will be able to have good answers to the questions why, how, when, where, what and other philosophical questions.

2. As a result of the first benefit, your loyalty, allegiance, and obedience will be to the Creator himself. You will transcend yourself from all types of allegiance for this world. This means that if there is a conflict of interest between your boss, your job, your government, your system or any worldly relationship with the Creator, you will undoubtedly put your trust in Allah, the Creator of the universe. You will follow Him before you follow anyone else.

3. As a result of the second benefit, you will be able to acquire peace, harmony, tranquility and happiness within yourself, with your family, with people of the world, with the environment and with the universe. One has to remember that the source of peace is Allah, and one of his beautiful names is that He is The Peace.

4. As an endorsement to the third benefit, you will get rid of the extra electrostatic charges from your brain and the central nervous system by performing the daily Salah (prayer). Through Salah, you are to prostrate by putting your forehead to the floor; and as such are grounding yourself, and you are discharging these extra charges into the ground. As a result of this act, you will get rid of many of the neurological diseases from your body.

5. As a result of the fourth benefit, you will acquire a pleasant personality. You will be friendly and amicable. You would not need to drink alcohol, to use drugs or to get involved in vulgarity or immorality.

6. Through the experience of fasting in Islam, you will be able to have self-control, self-restraint, self-discipline, self-education, self-evaluation, and self-obedience to Allah the Creator. You undoubtedly will be able to improve health, personality, character, and behavior.

7. As a result of the sixth benefit, you will be able to control your lusts, selfishness, desires, greed, ego, and conceitedness.

8. Another side reaction of the sixth and seventh benefits is that you will be generous and hospitable; you will try to purify yourself and your mistakes by sharing your happiness and your wealth with those who are less fortunate than you. Your rewards will manifold, compounded daily until the Day of Judgment.

9. By performing pilgrimage to Makkah, you will transcend yourself from being nationalistic, sectarian, or denominational into being universal. You will be part and an essential constituent of the rainbow of Islam. You will be also part of the brotherhood of Islam with those who already submitted themselves to the Creator. At the same time, you will get rid of any inferiority or superiority complexes. You will also find yourself in synchrony and harmony with all the prophets and messengers of Allah since the creation of Adam and Eve until the last final messenger to mankind, prophet Muhammad (PBUH). While in Makkah, you will be able to visit the places of revelation of the Qu`ran as well as the places visited by prophet Abraham and members of his family such as Hagar and Ishmael. You will visit the place where the first astronauts, Adam and Eve landed on earth.

10. In becoming a Muslim, you will do your best to stop all types of exploitations in all their forms: economic, biological, mental, spiritual, psychological, political, etc. You will also work to liberate people and give them freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression. You will be a leader and help lead people to peace, tranquility and happiness.

11. In accepting Islam, you will help to reduce all types of social illnesses in the society: juvenile delinquency, child abuse, domestic abuse, incest, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, premarital relationships, extramarital relationships, and other vices.

12. As a result of the eleventh benefit, you will reduce and eliminate venereal diseases, AIDS, and other diseases of similar nature in the society.

13. Finally, when you die, you will die at peace. You will have a happy life in the grave and later, eternal happiness. Angels at the time of death will comfort you. They will also show you your place in paradise. On the Day of Judgment, you will be able to see and meet all the prophets and messengers of God to mankind including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (PBUH). You will be able to see and meet any and all of your friends and relatives. You will live an eternal life of bliss in paradise.

Reflect on this

The benefits mentioned above and many more cannot be purchased with money anywhere in the world. No one is to sell them to you or to advertise them on TV. You have to take the initiative yourself and try to acquire them by accepting Islam first and then by practicing its teachings. You should be honest with yourself, sincere, and truthful to the Creator. You should try wholeheartedly to practice what you believe, regardless of whether someone else is good or not. While seeking happiness is a must, it should not be measured with other people's standards or with material gains. Happiness is from its potential to its kinetic forms. People around you should feel your happiness as well as benefit from you.

Are you ready to accept this challenge today? Remember, tomorrow may not come, and it will be too late.

For your goodness respected brother, tintingz, kindly reflect through these with an unbiased mind. Without doubt, fasting will give you all benefits highlighted above. With due respect sir, your chosen FSM is Shayton (devil) and he is expert in confusing people, say no to music of the accursed my dear brother. Worship the only God! I know if you are sincere in finding truth, you will definitely understand these very soon. However, you are advised to do your research very well and make comparison.

May Allah guide you and us.

This depends. If you're a person who is self indulgent and deeply hedonistic, fasting may help. But if you have your life together, you don't even need to fast.

Note also, health benefits of fasting is overhyped in the Muslim community. Food consumption during fasting is even higher than before or afterwards. It is a repeating cycle of fasting and feasting, not just fasting. Do doctors recommend fasting? Yes. But not daily fasting of 21 hours without even a ml of water.

7. As a result of the sixth benefit, you will be able to control your lusts, selfishness, desires, greed, ego, and conceitedness.

Hmm.. It all depends. Definitely, there are Muslims who do not reap this benefit at the end of fasting. It doesn't change anything for most Muslims besides meal schedule.

8. Another side reaction of the sixth and seventh benefits is that you will be generous and hospitable; you will try to purify yourself and your mistakes by sharing your happiness and your wealth with those who are less fortunate than you. Your rewards will manifold, compounded daily until the Day of Judgment.

This is highly subjective and not proven.

9. By performing pilgrimage to Makkah, you will transcend yourself from being nationalistic, sectarian, or denominational into being universal. You will be part and an essential constituent of the rainbow of Islam. You will be also part of the brotherhood of Islam with those who already submitted themselves to the Creator.

You will visit the place where the first astronauts, Adam and Eve landed on earth.

You don't need hajj to be an essential part of Islam. Where did this bogus claim come from?

Also hajj does still leaves you denominational, not universal. You still belong to a camp, the Muslim camp. You reject the Christain camp or the Hindu. This is denominational.

Hajj wont get rid of a Muslim superiority compex, after all Islam teaches that Muslims are the best people, and if I'm not mistakened, that Christian and Jews are the worst folks.

Adam and Eve landed in Makkah? Hmm...

10. In becoming a Muslim, you will do your best to stop all types of exploitations in all their forms: economic, biological, mental, spiritual, psychological, political, etc. You will also work to liberate people and give them freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression. You will be a leader and help lead people to peace, tranquility and happiness.

Freedom of worship, speech, expression? This again, is subjective. If you become a Muslim you're more likely to oppose these human rights values. I have an active thread on Human rights in Islam, where I gather verses that appeal to human rights.

But that's just me. How many Muslims in this section since it's inception ever created a thread in favor of human rights values? How many Muslim scholars speak of these basic freedoms?

11. In accepting Islam, you will help to reduce all types of social illnesses in the society: juvenile delinquency, child abuse, domestic abuse, incest, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, premarital relationships, extramarital relationships, and other vices.

Sure, but you don't need to be a Muslim to oppose these 'illness'.

And Incest? Does that include first cousin marriages too?

Homosexuality? My my.

12. As a result of the eleventh benefit, you will reduce and eliminate venereal diseases, AIDS, and other diseases of similar nature in the society.

You will help minimize, not eliminate. Some of these disease are also transmitted non-sexually.

13. Finally, when you die, you will die at peace. You will have a happy life in the grave and later, eternal happiness. Angels at the time of death will comfort you. They will also show you your place in paradise.

Same promise from every the religion on earth. Was this piece written for pre-school kids?

Mehn, I didn't know there are Muslims who can be this vain and arrogant about their beliefs. When did Islam become a commodity?



@bold 1.

Allah is not a proper name, Allah mean 'the god', a contraction of 'Al illah'. If Allah is a proper name, why did the previous scripture not mention 'Allah'? I've said it before, this notion that 'Allah' is God's real name is only common among Muslims who are often very religious but at the same time very ignorant on Islam.

As for the rest of your promises, I have to laugh. All other religions promise man answers to all their question, whether the purpose of life and the origin of man. Plus, people leave Islam every now and then for lack of answers to these question. You should talk more to ex-Muslims.



Hmm... Again all other religions promise the same thing.



This is half truth. You want to know the number of people that claim to have left Islam for want of inner peace? Again, go talk more with ex-Muslims. Real ex Muslims that know Islam better than you think.


No evidence for such a strong claim?



How? You have atheists and agnostic out there with pleasant personality, you don't need to become a 'Muslim' to be decent person. Hell, sometimes people become Muslims only to become unpleasant.

Well said.

I used reductio ad absurdum to reply his post to demonstrate how absurd his posts are.

cool


I can only be a Muslim or a Catholic, but since I am a Muslim, I am quite happy and satisfied, I have Christian family even a Pentecostal Pastor as an uncle.

True Muslim like the true Catholic are not Insecure about their beliefs, you can never find them poke nosing into others business, they are very conservative, as modesty is part of their religious practice.

Furtunately I have read all the books written by prophet of God as inspired by Angel Gabriel from Jew prophets and Islamic prophet (excluding books written by Jesus followers that betrayed him in his last moments, mathew john, Samuel, Peter Jeremiah etc) and I know both are the same Abrahamic faith.

Penticostal was developed by Americans who rebelled against Christianity as passed down by Peter, they see Muslim as their enemy just because we don't support American lebral veiws as God warned Moses and punished Israelite for such.
