Clearly it is stated in the Quran that each soul is born as a Muslim and it is the parents of the child who is responsible for growing him/her up outside of the deen of Islam. The stages each individual reverting to Islam or recognizing his Creator and His purpose in life may come at different time in one’s lifetime. In the Quran Allah him self states that he will inform mankind about His oneness. “Soon will We show them our signs in the furthest horizons, and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth…” Surah Fusilat (41: 53)
There are many who have for ulterior reasons after being showed the straight path chose to be heedless. A believer, on the other hand who is guided by his Creator, attains the correct understanding of his destiny by trying to fully grasp what is pre-ordain in his/her destiny as the sole perfect program exclusively designed for him.
