I have enjoyed reading your emails, and can see quite clearly why many people find the answers they seek in the Quran.
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:
Unlike many Australians, I am neither racist nor bigoted, but have kept an open mind as to which God is the One True God and which isn't. I have enjoyed reading your emails, and can see quite clearly why many people find the answers they seek in the Quran. Your explanations have struck a chord within me, and I have no trouble accepting what you have said as the truth.
Please continue sending me these emails. I am sure that, when the time is right, I will be able to approach Islam with an open mind and an open heart.

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 none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
May The Lord Most Gracious reward you with the best of this world and the Hereafter for your kind comments of encouragement for our humble efforts in the propagation of the Truth. If our humble and modest efforts have helped even one brother or sister get closer to their Lord Creator and His approved Path of Truth, then we would consider ourselves indeed fortunate to have been given this opportunity by the Lord Most Merciful to serve in His Cause. We hope, beg, and pray the Merciful Lord accepts our humble and weak efforts, forgives us our shortcomings, and saves you, us, and all the believers from the torment of the Hell Fire. Ameen.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 6 Surah Anaam verses 125-126:
So (the fact is that) whomever Allah wills to guide aright, He makes his breast wide open to Islam. And whomever He wills to let go astray, He makes his breast narrow and squeezes it so tight that (at the very idea of Islam) he begins to feel as if his soul were climbing up towards the sky. Thus Allah puts the Wrath over those who do not believe, whereas this Way (Al-Islam) is the Straight Way of your Lord, and We have made its Signs quite clear for those who are open to advice.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 42 Surah Shura verse 13:
13 Allah chooses to Himself those whom He Pleases; and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him for guidance).
Dear and beloved Sister in humanity, as your sincere brothers and well-wishers in humanity, we humbly beseech and implore the Lord Creator that he bestow upon you His Mercy, and grant you the wisdom and the courage to seek the Truth, and the path that will lead you to the Lords Mercy, Grace, and Forgiveness.
If there is anything we can do to facilitate your search in seeking the Truth, we would indeed be honored and consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have been given an opportunity to serve the Cause of Truth.
May The Lord Most Merciful Most Gracious always keep you and your family in His Protection and His Mercy.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
