Views of Some Converts about the Holy Qur'an
"The Noble Qur'an contains what
every soul mostly requires."
"Since my youth, I have been greatly impressed by Islamic civilization in all its aspects, its poetry and architecture; and very often I have told myself that a people who could give to the world so vast a treasure of beauty and significance in every branch of culture, must also have attained to the highest levels both in philosophy and religion.
In my enthusiasm for Islam, I began to study all religions, from the most ancient to those of the present day, comparing each with the other, and subjecting them to very close criticism; and little by little, I became convinced that the Muslim worship is the True Religion, and that the Noble Qur'an contained what every soul mostly requires for its spiritual elevation." (Count Eduardo Gioja , Italy)
"I studied a Muslim translation of the Noble Qur'an and was astounded to read such noble precepts and inspiring passages!
Such wise and practical advice for everyday life. It made me wonder why I had been taught that Muhammad (SAWS) was a false Prophet, and how I had not heard the truth about this wonderful religion earlier.
Islam, if sincerely followed, must bring that peace to the mind and body which the world itself needs, and create a perfect social order." (Hasan V. Mathews)
"The Noble Qur'an is full of truths, and its teachings are so practical and free from dogmatic tenets and mysteries!"
"As a Roman Catholic, I had the opportunity of studying the Catholic faith to a great extent. I was doing my best to convince myself that Catholicism was the only true faith, but alas! Its mysteries, dogmas and the compulsory 'must believes' did not permit me to remain quiet. I started my search for the Truth and remained engaged in this for many years quite silently.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, I found such 'vacant spots' that the only alternative left to me was to study Islam. At one time, I really held Islam in abhorrence. I had no Muslim friends, for Islam was so repulsive to me that I did not want even to associate with its adherents. Little did I dream thatů books on Islam would make a new man of me. I was gradually becoming so observed in the lovely teachings of Islam that it did not take me long to go earnestly further into it. I began to love Islam because of its straight and non-mysterious path. It is clean and simple, yet so full of deep studies that I soon felt the inevitable was drawing nigh.
The Noble Qur'an, some passages of which I read, simply struck me with wonder, for I had the idea that there was nothing to rival the Bible. I found, however, that I was hopelessly mistaken in this. Indeed, the Noble Qur'an, is so full of truths, and its teachings so practical and free from dogmatic tenets and mysteries, that I was daily being drifted into the religion of 'Peace and Love' which Islam certainly is." (Mumin Abdur-Razzaque, Selliah, Ceylon)
