Genuine believers in other religion


Asslamu alaikum varahmathullah…I am having a doubt that keep me annoying every time ie i have a friend he is a christian who genuinely believe in his faith and do dawah on christianity. He become a believer after a spiritual section of Christianity he got a real experience of god on him.I think it’s something about jinn possession on that time felt that its god presence.But from that time onward he is a strong believer and doing good dawah and all.My doubt is that if they got this religion of Islam they will be more religious and pious to Allah.Why the people who genuinely believe in other faith don’t get  message of islam. They are ready to practice genuinely for it still they are not getting Islam.


Wa Alaykumussalam

Thank you for your query.

رَحِمَ اَللَّهُ عَبْداً أَحْيَا أَمْرَنَا قُلْتُ كَيْفَ يُحْيِي أَمْرَكُمْ قَالَ يَتَعَلَّمُ عُلُومَنَا وَ يُعَلِّمُهَا اَلنَّاسَ فَإِنَّ اَلنَّاسَ لَوْ عَلِمُوا مَحَاسِنَ كَلاَمِنَا لاَتَّبَعُونَا اَلْحَدِيثَ .

Abdus Salam bin Saleh quotes from Imam Raza(as): May Allah have mercy on a servant who revived our affair. I said how to revive your affair. He said: He learns our teachings and teaches them to the people; Because if people know the beauties of our words, they will surely follow us.(Uyun Akhbar ar-Ridha, vol1, pg307)

Our behavior as Muslims is very effective in introducing Islam, just as the Imams ask us to invite people to their teachings through our behavior. Of course, if we know and study the teachings of Islam well, we can introduce it to others.

We should introduce Islam to them by showing the best Akhlaq and behavior which will attract the non-Muslims towards Islam. This should be our approach to spread Islam. We wish for all non-Muslims to accept Islam so they can follow the best religion and get the proximity of Allah(swt) and succeed in this world and the Hereafter..

All the people are getting the message of Islam in different ways. At least people know about Islam, they see Muslims and therefore have the capability of researching about the religions and selecting the best one. Even the Muslims must learn about Islam more and not be a Muslim just by a name and because they were born in a Muslim family rather should be a proper Muslim with strong faith.

Therefore, we must try to become and better Muslim especially in actions and preach Islam so the followers of other religions realize that they aren’t following the straight path.

I would recommend you to read the books regarding belief(Theology). One of the easiest books to understand will be:

Use this authentic site to increase your knowledge and know more about Islam. You can find thousands of books on different topics:

First of all, study the Aqaid book yourself and become strong in the theological topics and secondly, share the Aqaid(theology) book with your Christian friends. You will find logical proves in the books for the existence of God, God being One, Prophecy and Imamat. Once, you are stronger in these topics you can speak to your non-Muslim friends and even debate nicely. This will at least shake their beliefs and would attract them towards Islam if they have the acceptance power.

May Allah(swt) grant you success
