Benefits of Becoming a Muslim
1. As far as the Creator (whose proper name is Allah) is concerned, you will be able to identify Him and get to know Him, His role and your relationship to His names, you will be able to communicate with Him any time, 24 hours a day, throughout the whole year. As a result of this category, you will be able to know your origin, your roots and the wisdom as to why you are on this planet. You will be able to have good answers to the questions why, how, when, where, what and other philosophical questions.

2. As a result of the first benefit, your loyalty, allegiance, and obedience will be to the Creator himself. You will transcend yourself from all types of allegiance for this world. This means that if there is a conflict of interest between your boss, your job, your government, your system or any worldly relationship with the Creator, you will undoubtedly put your trust in Allah, the Creator of the universe. You will follow Him before you follow anyone else.

3. As a result of the second benefit, you will be able to acquire peace, harmony, tranquility and happiness within yourself, with your family, with people of the world, with the environment and with the universe. One has to remember that the source of peace is Allah, and one of his beautiful names is that He is The Peace.

4. As an endorsement to the third benefit, you will get rid of the extra electrostatic charges from your brain and the central nervous system by performing the daily Salah. Through Salah, you are to prostrate by putting your forehead to the floor; and as such are grounding yourself, and you are discharging these extra charges into the ground. As a result of this act, you will get rid of many of the neurological diseases from your body.

5. As a result of the fourth benefit, you will acquire a pleasant personality. You will be friendly and amicable. You would not need to drink alcohol, to use drugs or to get involved in vulgarity or immorality.

6. Through the experience of fasting in Islam, you will be able to have self-control, self-restraint, self-discipline, self-education, self-evaluation, and self-obedience to Allah the Creator. You undoubtedly will be able to improve health, personality, character, and behavior.

7. As a result of the sixth benefit, you will be able to control your lusts, selfishness, desires, greed, ego, and conceitedness.

8. Another side reaction of the sixth and seventh benefits is that you will be generous and hospitable; you will try to purify yourself and your mistakes by sharing your happiness and your wealth with those who are less fortunate than you. Your rewards will manifold, compounded daily until the Day of Judgment.

9. By performing pilgrimage to Makkah, you will transcend yourself from being nationalistic, sectarian, or denominational into being universal. You will be part and an essential constituent of the rainbow of Islam. You will be also part of the brotherhood of Islam with those who already submitted themselves to the Creator. At the same time, you will get rid of any inferiority or superiority complexes. You will also find yourself in synchrony and harmony with all the prophets and messengers of Allah since the creation of Adam and Eve until the last final messenger to mankind, prophet Muhammad (pbuh). While in Makkah, you will be able to visit the places of revelation of the Quran as well as the places visited by prophet Abraham and members of his family such as Hagar and Ishmael. You will visit the place where the first astronauts, Adam and Eve landed on earth.

10. In becoming a Muslim, you will do your best to stop all types of exploitations in all their forms: economic, biological, mental, spiritual, psychological, political, etc.. You will also work to liberate people and give them freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression. You will be a leader and help lead people to peace, tranquility and happiness.

11. In accepting Islam, you will help to reduce all types of social ills in the society: juvenile delinquency, child abuse, domestic abuse, incest, homosexuality, sexual promiscuity, premarital relationships, extramarital relationships, and other vices.

12. As a result of the eleventh benefit, you will reduce and eliminate venereal diseases, AIDS, and other diseases of similar nature in the society.

13. Finally, when you die, you will die at peace. You will have a happy life in the grave and later, eternal happiness. Angels at the time of death will comfort you. They will also show you your place in paradise. On the Day of Judgment, you will be able to see and meet all the prophets and messengers of God to mankind including Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad. You will be able to see and meet any and all of your friends and relatives. You will live an eternal life of bliss in paradise.

Reflections:

The benefits mentioned above and many more cannot be purchased with money anywhere in the world. No one is to sell them to you or to advertise them on TV. You have to take the initiative yourself and try to acquire them by accepting Islam first and then by practicing its teachings. You should be honest with yourself, sincere, and truthful to the Creator. You should try wholeheartedly to practice what you believe, regardless of whether someone else is good or not While seeking happiness is a must, it should not be measured with other people's standards or with material gains. Happiness is from its potential to its kinetic forms. People around you should feel your happiness as well as benefit from you.

Are you ready to accept this challenge today? Remember, tomorrow may not come, and it will be too late?

Thank you for your effort brother. May Allah rewards you

God says in Quran:

[41:46] Whoever works righteousness does so for his own good, and whoever works evil does so to his own detriment. Your Lord is never unjust towards the people.

"You will also work to liberate people and give them freedom of worship, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression."

This goes great with killing Christians and Jews for their religion, killing those who oppose leadership and forcing women to be slaves to men and to cover their bodies.

"You will be a leader and help lead people to peace, tranquility and happiness."

BOOM! goes the car bomb!

RE: Benefits of Becoming a Muslim
Few Muslims are terrorists.
But, nearly all terrorists are Muslims.

My religion condemns violence in any form. I would be deeply upset if others committed violence in its name and I would publicly condemn their acts. Why aren't you? Why don't you?

RE: Benefits of Becoming a Muslim
I understand that the original message you posted was from someone (a non-Arab) who had converted to Islam. Much of it was appealing but some of it (the electrostatic discharge) was silly.

I haven't seen any reports of Islamic leaders condemning violence in western media. Have there been such reports in Arabic newspapers or television? If so, then my objections are not valid.

I have read much of the Quran in an English translation. I was looking for guidance rather than searching for contradictions. But, I cannot ignore contradictions. God (or Allah) is perfect. Therefore, God's instructions to us should be perfect. Every sacred scripture (including the Quran) contains internal contradictions. Therefore, no sacred scripture is perfect. Therefore, no sacred scripture is the literal word of God. I can't see how anyone can get around this logic.

I know there is a God. I believe passionately that that God has instructions for us. But, I have found major flaws in all the sacred scriptures I've read.

""I haven't seen any reports of Islamic leaders condemning violence in western media. Have there been such reports in Arabic newspapers or television? If so, then my objections are not valid.""
it is obvious form ur words that is just for wprds....coz the both situations according to u not valid..then what do u want...just argue...u didn't give me contradictions at all .....coz u realy don'y know Quran.....fair is good feature in a man....
finally the guidance is in the hand of Allah ...then what can i do for one his heart is blind towards the truth
there is an arabian verse poem called :-
what is the harm for a rose , if the one having cold say it has no smell....

Here is one of the sites that list contradictions in the Quran:

http://www.carm.org/islam/Koran_contradictions.htm

What I want is instructions from God that don't contradict themselves.
