Ismaili Brother converted


Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.  (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

 

 

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Wa alaikkum salaam wa Rahetullahuh wa Barakatuh

Jazzaak Allah Khair for your positive and very helpful response. Insha Allah we may be able to convey the Message to some of the Ismailis with our combined efforts. Al Hamdulillah. I am so heartened to learn that so many have seen the light and have been saved. I am based in England and I am in close contact with about a dozen Ex-Ismailis and I would be very much surprised if these are represented in the figure of" 808 Ismaili brother are converted" because a couple of them are women converts and by Allah's grace are steadfast despite a strong opposition from well-meaning but misguided and ill-informed parents! I would be very interested to know the source of that statistic and whether it is possible to establish a link with those who are based in England and co-opt them for setting up a helpline to run parallel with yours. More after I have heard from you. Salaams from Brother in Islam

Answer:

 

Ismaili Brother converted

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 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.


 

All Praise is due to Allah Subhanah Alone, who has had Mercy on us and guided us to the deen of Truth. It now becomes incumbent upon us to show gratitude to our Merciful Lord, and invite our brethren who are astray to the Straight Path of Islam.

 

Brother, we do not have any knowledge or contacts with these particular Ismaili brothers you have mentioned in your letter, and we have activated our contacts with some good brothers in the United Kingdom to see if any of them has any links with these particular reverts to Islam. In the city of Leicestershire there is an Islamic Dawaah Organization by the name of The Islamic Foundation, UK. We have spoken to the chairman of the organization, Professor Khursheed Ahmed, and he is waiting anxiously for your call or visit, to assist you in any which way he, or the organization can to help in the Cause of Allah Subhanah.

 

Brother, it would be an honor and a pleasure for us to help and co-operate with you in any way in the Cause of, and for the Sole Pleasure of Allah Subhanah. If you would like to start or run a parallel web-site for the guidance of our Ismaili brothers, we have all the resources to help you in this noble mission. Allah is our witness, we are exited about this opportunity to help in the Cause of Allah, and humbly pray and supplicate Allah Subhanah that He accept our humble efforts, have Mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and save us all from the torment of the Hell Fire.

 

We just have one worry, which we can discuss later if you wish. None of us are aware of the exact rituals, details, and the falsehoods that the Ismaili leadership may preach or practice in the name of Islam. Thus, the least you will need is a revert from the Ismaili sect, who can address the particular Ismaili belief questions, if and when they come. But if any questions are related to Islam, then our scholars and brothers are more than qualified to deal with them. Anyways, this is something in the future, and we can discuss the process and details when we are closer to your and our dream of starting a parallel web-site to help our Ismaili brethren to the Truth of Islam.

 

We look forward to hearing from you, and if need be, we could fly to London and meet with you and the brothers to take this noble project forward. May Allah Subhanah help us, guide us, and allow us the opportunity to work in His Cause.

 

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.

 

Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 3 Surah Ale Imran verse 110:You (muslims) are the best community which has been raised for the guidance of mankind. You enjoin what is right, and forbid what is evil and you all believe in Allah Alone.

 

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 in Islam,

 

 

Burhan
