About

I have named my new blog "Islam: My Ultimate Decision" to write about the religion of Islam which has enlightened the path of countless since it was revealed unto mankind by the Allah Almighty more than 1400 years ago. Although I am a born Muslim and follower of Islam, the aim of this blog is to share views of non Muslims who made their ultimate decision to accept Islam and live the life as Muslim. 

I will thus try to put across Islam as I have understood it since my childhood in as easy words as possible without indulging my readers into any technicalities. However, where further explanation is needed, I will link my posts to sites that would elaborate the topic under discussion. Besides,  I will also share views of people  who converted to Islam on their free will for those who are indecisive in taking their ultimate decision.

Why I chose this title for my blog? Well Islam is a religion which if adopted with one's heart and soul, it would ultimately lead us to Jannah, the paradise, after the hereafter.  The journey of one devout Muslim thus becomes an enlightened path for him which shows him the light at the end of the tunnel.

Recently the word Islam or Muslim has been tainted to an extent that non Muslims around the world have an uneasy feeling in the presence of a Muslim and most even take them as terrorists and miscreants to spoil their peace. Which in fact should not have been the case for Islam always preaches peace and nothing but peace and tolerance even in the face of intolerance.

Over the years, the word Jihad and Jihadists has become synonymous with the religion of Islam and non Muslims are quick at labeling a Muslim a jihadist and thus a terrorist for the wrongdoings being committed across the word. Whereas on the contrary, majority of Muslims are peace loving barring a small minority which is being used for the nefarious designs of some world powers to destabilize a region and deface Islam.

And yet despite all opposition from every corner, the number of people accepting Islam is on the increase, which speaks for itself the truthfulness of the religion of Islam despite all odds. 

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has been quoted as saying: “One who walks on a path in search of knowledge, Allah leads him to Jannah, Paradise." In other words, a path selected to know the truth which should ultimately take us nearer to our creator, Allah the Almighty, becomes the Enlightened Path for us. With this in the the backdrop, this new blog of mine aims at introducing what Islam is and in the process try to clarify many a misgiving and misunderstanding about the religion of Islam.
