From praying to different gods, I finally found the real God - an emotional revert experience

Finding the real truth and the True God has been the quest of many around the globe since centuries. People, specially atheists, have often been confused about the existence of God, specially when confused with teachings of God in One and God in Three, or the God in Man and Man in God concepts that abound and a lot many really believe in such concepts.

Yet there are people, many and many more, who are trying to seek the truth about God and Alhamdollilah they are finding answer to their one query: Who is the Real God.

Before I share one such experience, let me confide that the experience is the same which my great grandfather went through in the early 20th century. He lived in the Indian sub continent under the British rule. While the Hindus predominated the followers of other faiths including Muslims, the British had also unleashed an intensive missionary programme to convert the locals to Christianity. Although, Muslim by birth, he was confused with so much of ideas floating around him, my grandfather bolted and went to a segment of Jews in a synagogue (at that time there were many Jews in the Indian sub continent) to find an answer as to who True God is, stayed with them and then moved on to join a Christian missionary group and later a Hindu priest in a mandir. But nothing satisfied him and he finally concluded that Allah is the Real God and all others are false gods. You may read my previous post on my great grandfather from link given herein under:

And while I was listening to the revert experience of Cleon Bismarckham, he sounded like just my great grandfather revealing his unique experience of reversion to Islam. Although he was born in a Christian family, the confusing concept of Trinity made him an atheist. In search of reality, he prayed to different beliefs and even a demon to find the truth. But then truth finally dawned on him and found the truth that Allah is the Real God he has been in search for, and entered fold of Islam. Then he prayed with his whole self to Allah, he prayed to Him intensely, and suddenly the dust from his heart was washed away and the much sought out relief. 

Herein under we share the revert experience of Muhammad Cleon, his new name after reverting to Islam, and see how one finally finds truth in Islam and knows that there is no god but Allah and all myths and concepts are false and misleading:

I hope such revert experiences will enlighten those still in quest of truth and will one day, In Sha Allah (God willing) will find the One True God and His most favoured religion: Islam
May Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us have unflinching faith and trust in Divine Wisdom and decisions and should never lament for we do not know that something better has been planned for us by our most caring Lord. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.
