to choose the religion.

Sister wishes to
revert to shia muslim
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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear
witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His
Respected Sister in humanity, if your intention to revert
to Al-Islam is only to pursue your ‘love’ for the man, or to obtain any benefit
for yourself in the life of this wolrd…..then indeed sister, your are well
within your rights to do whatever it takes to fulfill your worldly intention.
But if your intention to accept Islam is because your
heart has confirmed it to be the Truth from your Lord Creator, and because you
wish to tread a path which leads to the Mercy, Grace, and Forgiveness of your
Lord and thus success in the eternal life of the Hereafter, then you need to
look no further than the Guidance of only One Book which the Lord Creator Has
Himself revealed for the Guidance of all mankind: the Al-Quran.
Respected Sister, it is indeed unfortunate that even
though all the muslims declare belief in The One Lord Creator, in Prophet
Mohamed (saws) being the Last and Final Messenger, and in the Glorious Quran
being the last and final Revelation of the Lord Most Gracious….the ignorant
amongst them have succeeded in dividing the Muslim nation into various man-made
and self-invented sects like the Shias, Sunnis, etc. We absolutely assure you in the name of the
Blessed Lord, neither Shias, nor Sunnis, nor any other sect for that matter
find mention or merit in Islam!
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah
Rum verses 31-32:
This (Islam) is the right and true faith, but
most people do not know. (Be steadfast on this) turning wholly and sincerely
towards Allah Alone, and fear Him, and establish the Salat, and do not be like
the mushriks (polytheists), who have set up their separate creeds and divided
themselves into sects, each sect rejoicing in what it has."
Allahs says in Chapter 42 Surah Ash-Shura aayat
He (Allah) has appointed for you the same Way of
Life (Al-Islam) which He had ordained for Noah, and which (O Mohamed (saws)) We
have now revealed to you, and which We had already enjoined on Abraham and
Moses and Jesus, stressing this: " Establish this Way (Islam), and be not
divided in it.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 45 Surah
Al-Jathiyah verse 17:
Then they differed amongst themselves after the
knowledge (of Islam) had come to them, only because they wanted to wrong one
another. Your Lord will judge between them on the Day of Resurrection
concerning the matters in which they have been differing."
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah
Hajj verse 77-78:
O you who have believed, do ‘rukooh’ (bow down) and do ‘sajdah’
(prostration), and worship your Lord Allah Alone, and do righteous deeds: it
may be that you attain true success!
Exert your utmost for the Cause of Allah, as one should. He has chosen you for His service, and has
not laid on you any hardship in your religion.
Therefore, be steadfast in the
religion of your father Abraham. Allah
had named you ‘muslims’ before this, and has named you (muslims) in this Quran
also, so that the Messenger may
be a witness in regard to you, and you
may be witnesses in regard to the rest of mankind.
The believers who truly believe in Allah and the Last Day
are satisfied to be recognized by the name their Lord Creator has chosen for
them; ie. ‘muslims’….and they find absolutely no reason to add a Shiah or Sunni
prefix to the name chosen for them by none other than their Lord Most High,
Thus my respected and beloved Sister, we reiterate again,
if your intention to accept Islam is only to pursue your ‘love’ for the man, or
marriage, or any other benefit which the acceptance of Islam may bring unto you
in the life of this world…you are well within your rights to do as you
please. But if your intention is to
accept Islam because your heart believes it to be the Truth, and because you
wish to attain salvation in the Eternal and Everlasting life of the Hereafter,
then the one and only answer to your search is the sincere contemplation of the
Very Words of the Lord Creator, the Glorious Quran.
As your sincere well-wishers in humanity, our humble
advice to you is not to make a decision regarding your change of faith, or the
sect which you wish to follow….until you have read the Book of Guidance
revealed by your Lord Creator with understanding, even if only once.
If one trusts, obeys, and follows the guidance and
commands of Allah and His Messenger (saws),
one can be assured of never ever being misled; but if one believes, obeys and follows any
other guidance, other than that of Allah and His Messenger (saws), one can be
assured of being led astray.
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 and
well wisher in Islam,
