Benefits of Becoming a Muslim

Reverting to Islam is a term that is used to refer to the person who chooses to be a Muslim and to obey Allah in Islam. Reversion indicates a return because, in reality, someone embracing Islam is going back to what he or she was created upon. This reality is referred to as “the fitrah” and the Qur’an and the statements of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ prove this. Allah said:

And strive for Allah with the striving due to Him. He has chosen you and has not placed upon you in the religion any difficulty. [It is] the religion of your father, Abraham. Allah named you "Muslims" before [in former scriptures] and in this [revelation] that the Messenger may be a witness over you and you may be witnesses over the people. So establish prayer and give zakah and hold fast to Allah. He is your protector; and excellent is the protector, and excellent is the helper.
Holy Quran
Surah Al-Haj (22:78)

Similar to this is the statement of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in which he said:

Every child is born according to the Fitrah and then his parents make him Jewish, Christian or Magian. It is as you help the animals give birth: do you find them mutilated unless it is you who mutilates them?
Sahih Al-Bukhari
Abu Huraira
Sahih Bukhari (441)

In this short article, I would like to share with our readers some of the benefits that await the one who sincerely embraces Islam.

  1. The first and most important benefit is that the one who accepts Islam has chosen to worship and obey the God who is truly worthy of worship and obedience. This is so because mankind has created gods which people worship, but these deities are not truly WORTHY of worship.
  2. Islam is in accordance with sound reason. The ability to think is respected within the boundaries of the guidelines of the religion.
  3. Islam proclaims that God is uniquely distinct from His creation. Allah does not become one with His creation. His attributes are complete and perfect without any of the limitations or deficiencies of the creation.
  4. Islam answers many of the fundamental questions about existence that a thinking person may have.
  5. Islam is a balanced way of life that fulfils both physical and spiritual needs, without neglecting either. It provides guidelines in keeping with the nature of man to guide his everyday affairs which ensures a smooth running through the journey of life.
  6. Submission to the Creator ensures peace of mind and tranquillity which is the result of submitting to one’s Creator.
  7. The religious, moral, economic, political and social ethics are permanent and constant and are governed unchanging principles including justice, freedom, equality, brotherhood and social responsibility.

In addition, a person who accepts and enters Islam has a guarantee that he or she will enter Paradise if they die as Muslims. These are some of the benefits that can be derived from accepting Islam. We hope that you can take the time to research Islam with a fair and balanced mind
