Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,
As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Assalaam walaikum Mr. Burhan!
How r u doing to-day?
First of all let me tell u that even though I am not a Muslim, but I am extremely interested to study this religion. I had come across this site while surfing the net, and found it very informative. Many of my queries were answered as I was going through ur informative answers. Thanx. I was rather highly impressed to have felt ur unfathomable knowledge. I respect u and take u as my Guru. I admire your wisdom and trust it even more than my own inner thoughts` promptings. I utterly adore ur English.
I have a few personal problems which I do not want to be put up for public viewing. May I have ur personal e-mail address for personal correspondence?
Mr. Burhan please do not be rude with the person who needs ur help so much. Please help me to understand life better. I feel myself like an unanchored ship trapped in the stormiest sea. I repeat again, please be kind enough to help me! Awaiting ur quick response,

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Dear Sister, we really appreciate your kind comments for our services in our humble effort to deliver the Message of Truth of our Lord Creator to any amongst His creation who wish to listen to good advice and caution. May the Lord Creator increase your quest for seeking more knowledge, and grant you the wisdom and the courage to accept His Truth.

Beloved Sister, first and foremost we assure you that we never ever reveal the identity of the person asking the question on this humble forum; and the one and only reason we circulate the questions and the answers on the forum, is so that someone else who has had a similar issue or query can be guided aright.
But if you still wish that you do no want us to circulate your queries on the forum for any reason whatsoever, we assure you that we will accept and honor your decision and will not circulate your query.
Beloved Sister, ask questions till your heart is absolutely content, for the Message revealed by your Lord Creator is a full and complete conduct of life called ‘Al-Islam’. Only those who have sincerely submitted themselves to the Message of Truth revealed by none but the Lord Himself, find themselves floating on that serene ship of life sailing smoothly on the calmest of waters! I assure you that this solemn promise of ‘smooth sailing’ is not only for the short and transient life of this world; but also for the eternal and everlasting life of the Hereafter!
The Lord Creator Says in His Message, The Holy Quran, Chapter 13 Surah Raad verse 28-29: The people who have accepted (the Message), their hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. Note it well!, that it is Allah’s remembrance Alone that brings contentment to the hearts! Blessed are those who have accepted this Message and done righteous deeds. They will have a good end.
Every human being is searching for this ‘mirage’ called ‘contentment of the heart’, when the answer and its Path was revealed by the Lord Himself and is right in front of our very eyes, if only one would bring himself to accept and submit to it! The Lord Creator Himself Declares: Blessed are those who have accepted this Message and done righteous deeds. They will have a good end!
The Lord Creator Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah An-Nisa verse 122: The Promise of Allah is True; and who can be Truer in his Word than Allah?
Your Statement: First of all let me tell u that even though I am not a Muslim, but I am extremely interested to study this religion.
Beloved Sister, being a muslim I must let you know that you, as a non-muslim who is sincerely interested in seeking and studying the Knowledge of Truth, have a bigger right upon us; and we assure you that your questions will get priority above the others being asked by our believing brothers and sisters. That is what we are commanded by our Lord, to Whom Alone we have submitted in all humility.
The Lord Creator Says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl verse 125: Invite to the Way of your Lord with wisdom and excellent admonition and argue with people in the best manner. Your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His Way and who is Rightly guided.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
