Benefits of Converting to Islam

Converting to Islam provides many benefits for the individual and the society. Since Islam is based on divine proofs and evidence, we will mention a divine proof for every benefit for no one can guarantee such benefits except our Almighty Creator.


1- The Door to Eternal Paradise:

Our Almighty Creator says: {And give good tidings to those who believe and do righteous deeds that they will have gardens [in Paradise] beneath which rivers flow…} [Quran 2: 25]

If you enter Paradise, you will live a very happy life without sickness, pain, sadness, or death; God will be pleased with you; and you will live there forever.


2- Real Happiness and Inner Peace:

Real happiness and inner peace can only be found in submitting to the commands of the Creator and the Sustainer of this world. Our Almighty Creator says: {…Unquestionably, by the remembrance of Allah hearts are assured.”} [Quran 13: 28]

On the other hand, the one who turns away from the Quran will have a life of hardship in this world. Our Almighty Creator says: {And whoever turns away from My remembrance – indeed, he will have a depressed life,…} [Quran 20: 124]


3- Salvation from Hellfire:

Our Almighty Creator says: {Indeed, those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers – never would the [whole] capacity of the earth in gold be accepted from one of them if he would [seek to] ransom himself with it. For those there will be a painful punishment, and they will have no helpers.} [Quran 3:91]

So, this life is our only chance to win Paradise and to escape from Hellfire, because if someone dies in disbelief, he will not have another chance to come back to this world to believe.


4- Forgiveness for All Previous Sins:

Many people are confused or ashamed of the many sins they have committed over the course of their lives. Converting to Islam completely washes those past sins away; it is as if they never happened. A new Muslim is as pure as a new born baby.
Our Almighty Creator says: {Say to those who have disbelieved [that] if they cease, what has previously occurred will be forgiven for them. But if they return [to hostility] – then the precedent of the former [rebellious] peoples has already taken place.} [Quran 8: 38]

5- Direct Connection with our Almighty Creator (away from any mediator):

Islam is a one to one relationship between us and our Almighty Creator in which we ask Him without any mediator and He Responds to us. Our Almighty Creator says: {And when My servants ask you, [O Muhammad], concerning Me – indeed I am near. I respond to the invocation of the supplicant when he calls upon Me. So let them respond to Me [by obedience] and believe in Me that they may be [rightly] guided.} [Quran 2: 186]
