Clarifications required from ISLAM

Finally, I bow down to the glory of Islam. I represent a variety of people who want to embrace
Islam for equally varied reasons. I have a love for Allah and want to do something meaningful in
life as per Allah’s directions and reach Heaven. So I want to be a true Muslim.
I have decided that there is only one Allah and Muhammad is his final Rasul and Quran is his
final word. But still there remains a lot of confusion. I need help. I want Muhammad to come
again and help me become a Muslim. Because when I analyze deeply, I find that it is technically
impossible for me to become a true Muslim. I may convert to a particular sect and claim to be a
Muslim, but still, I do not know if I am being a true Muslim or a fake Muslim. And in case I am
fake, I am doomed forever in an even more burning Hell! Its a desperate situation. Remember,
this is my only life and hence my only chance to make a right or wrong decision!
Here are my confusions: eggplant
1. Which mosque should I go into to become a Muslim? Qadiyanis say that they are true
Muslims. Wahabis say they are true Muslims. Shias say they are true Muslims. All in all there
are more than a 100 sects of Islam and all claim to be the only true sect. Most have their own
mosques and consider that those who go to pray in other mosques is a Kafir – a sure entrant into
Hell. Muslims themselves bomb the mosques of Qadiyanis because they belong to another sect.
And Zakir Naik uses Qadiyani literature for his lectures but belongs to Wahabi. Its so confusing.
2. My parents and I have been going to Dargahs since childhood. But now Zakir Naik says that
this is major Shirk. His wahabi gang has destroyed huge number of dargahs. So all Muslims
going to dargah are doomed to Hell forever. But Ajmer Sharif managers say that those who
condemn Dargahs will go to hell!
3. I do not even know which authentic Quran to believe in. So many different versions of Quran
are floating. Shias claim that actual Quran had 17000 verses and this one is fake or incomplete.
Others say Quran has 6666 verses or 6249 verses or 6336 verses. It seems so also because some
Hadiths say that goat ate some ayats. Also Quran was compiled and named Quran 20 years after
Muhammad’s death. And the Caliph who compiled it was murdered by Aisha’s (Muhammad’s
beloved youngest wife with whom marriage was fixed by Allah) brother. Aisha and Ali both
wanted to remove this Caliph and fought against him, as well as with each other.
4. I want to know that in addition to the Sunni Quran, or Shia Quran, or Khoja Quran, or
Qadiyani Quran…., which Ahadith do I need to believe to ensure my journey to paradise? I can
believe only in one of them because only one of them is true and only truth has to be followed to
be eligible for Heaven.
5. I don’t know which one of more than seventy sects of Islam will alone go to heaven as
mentioned by Muhammad. Should I go to Sunnis (which Sunni? There are many sub sects within
this sect), or to Shias (again many sects), or to Khojas, or to Wahabis, or to Bohras, or to
Qadiyanis……? Prayers offered in whose mosques of the above will land me in heaven?

If I be a Qadiyani. Sunnis may bomb me. Seems as if my destiny to Hell is already pre-decided by Allah! In any case. Islam means peace but its Muslims who fight Muslims in Muslim countries like Iran. has predicted that Hell would be full of mostly women and very women would go to Paradise! 10. Quran [43:3] says. as per Sahih Bukhari.6. believe in it? 9. So even after being a Muslim. So.“We have made it a Qur’an in Arabic. when Allah himself says that this book is for Arabs. where do I have peace? Any other sect may kill me because each sect has so many enemy sects. I am not told. how can I understand any version of Quran. why should I believe in a God. Unless I know Arabic. who wants us to praise Himself? Is He not free from all desires? Additionally. or. that ye may be able to understand”. why did Allah create me? It is told that I was created to worship Him. being a non Arab. Which prophet I need to believe in addition to Laasharik Allah in order to get secured from hell fire? Muhammad. Unless I understand Quran. But then other sects may kill me. that is also recipe for Hell. Is believing in one of the various Qurans sufficient to be a Muslim? Or believing in Hadith just like Quran is essential as prescribed by Darul uloom Deoband? Why is not this Shirk in believing Ahadith (which are manmade) as necessarily as believing in Quran (book of Allah)? Which Hadiths are true? All sects have their own hadiths. I am trying to cheat Allah and hence punishment for me is Hell. Prophet. It were Muslims who killed Hussain. 8. Being a wahabi Muslim belonging to cult of Zakir Naik may spare me from wrath of Osama Bin Laden. if all the people are created to worship Allah then why are not most of the people seen doing so? Is it not manufacturer’s failure if his product is not performing in accordance with his claims? . Deobandis and Barelvis may kill me. Aaga Khan? Many muslims claim that Quran was to be given to Ali originally. but it was revealed to Muhammad by chance! Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani followed Muhammad in true respect as he also claimed himself to be the last prophet just like Muhammad. And if I don’t. Iraq and Pakistan. My husband follows a deviant sect of Islam or is a non-Muslim. who understand Arabic. or Ali. how can I believe in Quran? And if I believe in Quran without even knowing what it is. 13. Can I be a muslim if I don’t include the name of any person along with Allah in the prayers as I want to remember only Allah and no one else during that time? Will I go to Heaven if I say “la ilaha illah” (There is only one God) but I refuse to say “Muhammad Rasool U Allah” (Muhammad is his Prophet)? 11. or Mirza Ghulam Ahmad Qadiyani. 12. If I follow Zakir. Its Muslims who killed the first few Caliphs and it were Ali and Aisha who were fighting against each other. How am I supposed to become Muslim? Because if I desert my husband. Whom should I consider final and why? 7. But I could not find answer to my question. still I am to be in Hell because Allah accepts only one specific but unknown sect of Islam. This verse indicates that Allah sent down Quran for those. why should I. I am a woman. I don’t know Arabic like 99% Muslim of world.

Nobody answered me about my pre decided fate. Can I be a muslim if I don’t believe polygamy. whether His writing will be fulfilled or not? Or in other words. But I asked many Moulvis that if almighty Allah has already decided my fate (all acts. meditation and Sandhya? Can I use good mantras from Vedas to meditate on God? Can I do Havan and meditation in mosque in name of Allah? . to want or to dislike something? If I am Kafir as per Allah’s will [Quran 2:7 and 32:13]. I have to bow down to Kaba just like idolaters bow to their idols. Can I refuse to have circumcision but still be a Muslim? Can I refuse circumcision for my children? Many people claim that circumcision reduces chance of HIV infection. in the name of religion. will be treated as Kafir. Can I be a muslim if I don’t believe in unscientific acts called miracles like splitting of moon. But neither I have uncontrolled sex and nor do I keep my organs unclean. have spread hatred by invading other lands. killing etc are lawful as word of God and consider all those verses of Quran false. why should I act against His will by becoming a Muslim? In fact how can I even try acting against his will? 15. women. Hadith say that a man should wear such garments which do not hang beneath his ankle. keeping sex slaves? Can I oppose those. how is it a test of mine? Is it not Allah’s test. which was not there before? No one ever presented any new knowledge from Quran that was not present already in earlier texts. Moses talking to stones etc? 21. Muhammad’s sky journey with a flying donkey. what new. loot. So I do not have fear of contracting infections. 19. did Islam give to the world. Can one tell me why? It is also written that whoever does not dress like Muhammad. happiness. and sorrow). and animals? 18. which is equivalent to giving solutions to the problems and marks even before starting the test. Can I become a Muslim but follow good practices like Yajna. Can I be a muslim if I refuse to bow down to Kaaba as I don’t believe in idol worship? 17. children. which has been written in Lohe Mehfooz by Allah. What free will do I have.14. pant and tie! 20. I am desperate to know. wife beating. I am told that I am being tested. I don’t see any person other than few Madarsa bred Moulvis going to enjoy heaven! Even Zakir Naik will go to Hell due to his coat. whether will His creature (I) act as per His wish? Please refer God must be crazy! article on this site. prior to my creation. If this is the condition to get heaven. But is circumcision necessary for being a Muslim? Why? 23. who were so fond of lust that they married even 6 year old children? 22. raping women. which spread hatred and justify all ill doings towards non muslims. who. sex slavery. 16. Jesus without father. Otherwise he will not be resurrected on the doomsday. Can I be Muslim if I expose those.

But many scholars say that those who do not keep beard shall go to Hell. In all probability. all those who try to convince people to believe in Quran without making them experts of Arabic first are also against will of Allah and hence Kafir. These perplexing questions imply that even if one is born in a so-called Muslim family. Which verses of Quran are authentic? There are so many abrogated verses which were replaced by better verses. Following which of these would get me to Allah? Because Allah also says that if I try to fool Allah by believing in Quran when I have no reason to believe in it firmly. In summary. Some scholars say that using internet is unislamic. And my limited mind and logic says something else is true. I believe in One Allah. Can I do namaz in a temple or gurudwara or a church if I am a true Muslim? What if I don’t do namaz in conventional manner because there is no mention of namaz methodology in Quran? 25. Some say that Allah forgives minor mistakes if done unintentionally. it is technically impossible to know what is true Islam and hence it is equally impossible to be a true Muslim. all non-Muslims who to best of their intentions consider Quran to be crap and propagate against it should also be forgiven. size and shape of beard. Others say that using emoticons. But I do not believe that Jesus ever existed or Jesus would come back. By this logic. the only way for me to be a true Muslim is to have mastery over Arabic and then be able to understand Quran myself. or using social networking sites is unislamic. An average human being has been given only ONE single life as per conventional . Further each sect says their version alone is true. have thorough analysis of all verses to ensure nothing I do is against Quran – including my dress. What should I do? 28. Different scholars interpret it differently. In that case. Now can I choose to reject whatever does not make sense to me. Why do we have these outdated verses in Quran then? All sects have a different list of abrogated verses. Can I still be a true Muslim? 29. then also Allah will put me in Hell as punishment for cheating (Makar). be able to choose which of the innumerable sects of Islam is actually true. or converts to Islam.24. Can I be a true Muslim if I use internet or interact with nonMuslims on internet with love and compassion without having hidden hatred in my heart as per Tafseer-e-Jalayn? 26. should I choose between Quran and Truth? If Quran. it is highly unlikely that he or she is indeed a true Muslim. which interpretation of Quran? Will Allah consider me to be a true Muslim if I opposed verses of Quran because I genuinely felt that they were wrong? 30. Which verses I need to believe as abrogated to achieve Paradise? 27. Because facts in front of me appear to conclude so. Muslims say only Quran is true. my every minute belief etc. I do not have a beard. Now many of these do not appeal to me because I cannot find them reasonable. And I am not supposed to lie with my true feelings. without being biased? In other words. Christians say only Bible is true. Quran and Hadiths have many things written.

This takes us to Vedic philosophy – that Ishwar helps us continuously till we reach salvation through cycle of several births and deaths. Only one of them is the true path of Islam and none other than Allah possesses the ability to know which is true. . it is as more unlikely to choose the true path than the probability that you pick the right molecule of water from entire oceans of earth. My only chance to be a true Muslim.concept of Quran. So despite our best efforts. But he or she has innumerable paths – all intersecting and crossing each other – in front of him. The only way that I can be a true Muslim is that Allah gives me more chances and keeps guiding me with hints until I choose the right path. And this should happen continuously even after this life and in future lives as well. is that I adopt the Vedas. hence. Hence the only way to be a true Muslim is that the Vedic philosophy is true.
