Invite Americans to Islam
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and who-ever 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.
Islam is indeed the perfect religion and the only solution to all the problems faced by man, be they political, economical or spiritual. It is the only deen which is in absolute conformity with all the laws of nature and science.
We must not only invite the Americans, but rather we must make it our duty to invite the whole world to the Truth of Islam. The believers who realize this duty of inviting mankind to Islam are doing so to the best of their capacity; and Allah knows, more needs to be done.
But, unfortunately, some muslims are so swayed by the beauty and comfort of this transitory world, that they have preferred this passing world to the everlasting and eternal life of the Hereafter. They are so swayed by this transient world, that they have accepted and follow the systems and laws made by man, rather than obey and follow Allah and His Messenger (saws).
The non-believers look at the state of the muslims and judge Islam; but rather what they need to do is look at Islam and judge the muslims! That way they will get a better picture of the Truth of Islam.
And in our opinion, the best way to invite someone to Islam is to invite them to read and understand the Book of guidance which was revealed by the All Merciful Allah for the guidance of mankind; the Holy Quran.
Allah says in Chapter 2, Surah Baqarah aayat 185:"Ramadan is the month in which the Quran was sent down: this Book is a perfect guidance for mankind and consists of CLEAR teachings which show the right way and are a Criterion of the Truth and falsehood."
May Allah guide the believers to understand their duties as muslims, so that they can guide all who want to listen to good caution to the beautiful and perfect deen of Islam.
Allah says in the Holy Quran: Chapter 16, Surah An-Nahl Ayat 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 Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
