Why do Muslims think their religion is the truth? Do you have convincing reasons?
All praise is due to Allah.
a nice greeting. So then to continue:
At first glance, your question logically reveals that it is from a person who has not joined the religion of Islam, but whoever practices this religion recognizes what is contained in it and afterwards acts, the magnitude of the favor in which he lives, and thereby lies under the shadow of this religion. This is for many reasons and includes:
1. That the Muslim worship a single God who has no partner. He has the most beautiful names and the most sublime qualities, so that the point of view of the Muslim unites with him, he trusts his Lord and Creator and demands help, victory and strength from him. He believes that his master is capable of anything. He doesn’t need a wife or child. He created the heavens and the earth, gives life and lets die, He is the creator and universal provider, so that the servant requests his care from him. He is the All-Hearer and the Answerer, so the servant asks Him and hopes to be heard from Him. The one who accepts repentance, the Most Forgiving and the Most Merciful, so that when the servant commits a sin and becomes negligent in the worship of his master, he will return to him repentant. The omniscient, the knowledgeable, the All-Seeing One, who knows the intentions, secrets and what is in the breasts, on whom the servant is ashamed to commit a sin by being unjust to himself or to creation, since his master knows and sees him. He knows that his master is wise and knows the hidden, so that he trusts what his master chooses for him and what he destines for him, and that his master has never been unjust with him and everything that He has determined for him is good for him, even if the wisdom remains hidden in the servant.
2. The influences of Islamic, religious acts on the soul (ego) of the Muslim. So prayer is a connection between him and his Lord. When he starts with humility, he feels calm and rest, because he is supported by a solid pillar, which is Allah, he is venerable and glorious. That is why the Prophet of Islam, Muhammad, Allah’s blessing and peace on him, used to say: „Let us find peace through prayer (relax).“ And when something depressed him, he turned to prayer. And anyone who was struck by a misfortune and then cost prayer felt an increase in patience for what happened to him because he recited his Lord’s speech in his prayer. And the influence of the recitation of the Lord’s words (the Koran) cannot be compared to the influence of reading the words of the creatures. If you find calm and relief in the words of some psychologists, what do you think about the words of the one who created the psychologist?
If we now come to the Zakah (compulsory alms), which is one of the pillars of Islam, it cleanses the soul (ego) from avarice, accustoms it to generosity, helps the poor and needy and it is a reward, which benefits you on the day of resurrection, like all other acts of worship. It is neither expensive nor does it ruin you like people’s taxes. Rather, you only have to give 25 out of 1000 (2.5%). The true Muslim does this of his own free will. He does not evade it, even if no one is watching him.
As far as fasting is concerned, it is to contain food and sleep, from worship towards Allah, to feel the need of the hungry and needy, and to remind the Creator of His creation’s favor. It is a wage without payroll.
The pilgrimage (Hajj) to Allah’s house, which Ibrahim, peace be upon him, built. It (the Hajj) is a compliance with Allah’s command, the prayers are answered and you get to know Muslims from all over the world.
3. Islam commands everything that is good and forbids everything that is bad. He also calls for good behavior and beautiful personality traits, such as truthfulness, gentleness, persistence, kindness, modesty, modesty, fulfilling the promise, balance, compassion, justice, bravery, patience, sociability, frugality, chastity, charity, Magnanimity, loyalty, thanking for the good, holding back anger.
He (Islam) also commands kindness to parents, cultivating ties, helping the sad, being good to neighbors, protecting orphan property, compassion for the younger, and respect for the older, forbearance ( Kindness) to the servants and animals, to clear something harmful, to say nice words, to forgive, although one does not have to (forgive) to give his brother advice, to clarify the needs of the Muslims, to give the debtor time, to prefer others to comfort, to smile at people, to help the depressed, to visit the sick, to support the unjustly treated, that friends / companions gift each other, to honor the guest, to treat the wife well, for her and for the children (Money, possessions) to spend the greeting,and this is the salam (salute for peace) to spread to ask permission before entering houses so that you cannot see the nakedness of the house residents.
When some non-Muslims pursue these things, they generally do so in good manners, but they do not hope for the reward, victory or success of Allah on the Day of Resurrection.
If we now come to what Islam forbids, we will find an advantage for both individuals and society. All forbidden things are there to protect the relationship between the Lord and the servant, man and his self and man and his kind. Now we take these many examples to clarify what is meant:
Islam forbids Allah from joining and that worship leads to something other than Allah, misery and suffering.
