What Makes Islam And Quran So Inspirational To People?

Salam everyone,

This is another article written by Hijab al Faisal. She is working at Quranreading.com as a Web Content Writer teaching Quran to students living in the USA, Canada,and the UK. According to Hijab, Quran Reading is the largest Online Quran Academy, where they have taught more than 5000 kids and parents to Read Quran online with Tajweed. 

Masha Allah!

In the West, we find a huge majority of people who have a very distorted and diminished image of Islam, thanks to the expertise of popular (but rogue) media. The fact of the matter is that the masses do not find time and have enough interest to investigate into the truth and the reality of issues by themselves. Ultimately they become a victim to the disinformation disseminated by media.

In fact, not only particular to the West but also anywhere in the world, if you can manipulate popular media to your motives, you can get a lot of people to believe whatever is being fed to them, at least in the beginning.

Thankfully, not everyone is going to believe what they are told to accept as true. There are many people who are driven to expose the truth behind the scenes by what they see in the media. This is more common after the 9/11 atrocity which caused more than 3000 lives to perish.

Though almost all of influential Western media did their best to churn the story and hold Islam and Muslims the culprit of this painful event, which in itself is against the true teachings of Islam, but on their way to plan this, they undermined the influence of individual decisive power. Much to their dismay, this went against all their ill-intentioned plan.

And the result? Instead of hating Islam and Muslims, a significant number of Westerners (particularly the Americans) started to convert to Islam. Now, the reality is that Islam has turned into the most popular religion of the world, with largest number of people turning to it, particularly from the Western world.

The fact of the matter is that truth cannot be forsaken; it will reveal itself, sooner or later.

There are definitely more facets to this mass conversion of people from West to Islam, but discussed below are some of pretty simple but important points that can help a person understand the causes behind this phenomenon.
  •         Islam is the truest of religions that Allah Almighty, the Mighty Creator of the whole universe, declares mandatory for anyone who wants his/her way to guidance. Look what Quran, the religious Scripture of Islam, says about it:

Aal-e-Imran [3:19] the Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His will): nor did the People of the Book dissent there from except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.
  •          It is a religion that teaches about peace, harmony, and coherence among humans, while focusing on finding common grounds with other religions in the process to guide them about the ultimate truth and reality about Allah Almighty, prophets, and this life, etc. The following verse is just one example of Quran teaching in this regard:

Ash-Shura [42:13] The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah--that which We have sent by inspiration to thee--and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: namely, that ye should remain steadfast in religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him).
  •          The true concept of Islam lies in utter submission to the might of Allah (SWT), and one who does so, becomes owner of a character that inspires others rather than repelling them, and this is what exactly serves to be the biggest motivation of people in converting to Islam.


May Allah Almighty lead every soul truly searching for Quran Education and Islam guidance, much to His liking and countless benefits of the person.
