Some 3,000 people, mainly women and from various different faiths, are reported to have converted to Islam in Dubai, the commercial capital of the United Arab Emirates last year. This figure represents a 71% increase in the number of converts in 2007.
In an annoucement to the media, Dr. Hamad Bin al-Shaban said, “We are spreading Islamic culture and our national identity by way of mosques, Qur’anic sciences, the Islamic legacy, research and philanthropic activities and thus ensuring our message reaches large numbers of people in an appropriate manner.”
Al-Shaban also said that the message of Islam was being transmitted by qualified religious figures using advanced technology. The department concerned was reported to show special interest in new converts, to provide appropriate visual and audio materials and to hold education seminars in all languages.
Atheists’ greatest dream is to create a society of robotic, insensitive and desensitized indiciduals with no fear of Allah. In recent years, however, atheists have totally failed in their ambition of establishing a society that denies the existence of Allah on the basis of no evidence whatsoever (surely He is beyond that) that has turned its back on religion and only attaches any importance to matter and material things. The theory of evolution, put forward to replace the fact of Creation, has been scientifically proved to be the greatest lie of the last century. Consciences of people have been opened up as it has emerged how the world has been deceived by fraud on the subject of evolution. This has allowed them to be freed from the dark spell of Darwinism and to see Allah’s creative artistry and come to believe.
None of the methods atheists have used to try and get rid of religion have been able to prevent the turning toward faith, and the return to religious devotion is continuing at full speed. The reason for this is that Almighty Allah protects the true faith. He will cause it to prevail, against the wishes of the deniers. This is the true promise of Allah, the Omnipotent and Creator of the universe and all living things. Allah is He who 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
