Three thousand or so people, from different faiths and mainly women, are reported to have converted to Islam last year in Dubai, the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates. This figure represents a 71% increase over the number of conversions in 2007.
The official making the announcement, Dr. Hamad Bin Al Shaban from the Office for Islamic Activities and Assistance, said, "We are introducing and spreading our Islamic culture and national identity through the mosques, Qur’anic scholars, our Islamic heritage, research and charitable activities, and are transmitting our message to the public in an appropriate manner.”
Al Shaban also said that the message of Islam was being transmitted by qualified scholars using advanced technology. He also said that the office showed a particular interest in new converts, donating audio and visual materials where needed and conducting education seminars in all languages.
Masses of people who have no fear of Allah, who have become robotized and devoid of any feeling or sensitivity are atheists’ greatest dream. In recent years, however, atheists have completely failed in their aim of establishing a society that blindly denies the existence of Allah, in the absence of any information to that effect, that had turned its back on religion and that believes in and attaches importance to matter alone. The heretical theory of evolution, which was proposed in order to replace the fact of Creation, has been scientifically proved to be the worst lie of the century. People’s consciences have been hugely relieved now it has been shown that the theory of evolution is based on fraud. It has allowed them to be freed from the dark spell of Darwinism, to see Allah’s creative artistry and to believe.
All these practices engaged in by deniers with the aim of doing away with religion have failed to prevent the return to religion across the world, and the rapid growth in faith has continued. The reason for this is that Almighty Allah is the protector of the true faith. Allah will bestow dominion on the true faith, even if the deniers do not wish it. This true promise belongs to Omnipotent Allah, the Creator of the universe and all living things. And Allah keeps His promises:
“When you have seen people entering Allah’s religion in droves, then glorify your Lord’s praise and ask His forgiveness. He is the Ever-Returning.” (Surat an-Nasr, 2-3)2009-02-03 00:00:00
