PREFACE  I receive dozens of letters every week from all over the world written by different people of different nationalities, most of whom came across one of my books on Islam, Christianity, or comparative religion. Hundreds of those people, originally Christians, have told me that they have embraced Islam.  Each one of them has a story of his own. How did he inquire about Islam? What made him have doubts about Christianity? What made him step towards Islam? I thought that many readers would be interested in just knowing more about the experiences of such embracers.  I wrote back to every one of them asking for permission to publish the story of his or her embracement of Islam. Most of them gave me this permission, and many of them allowed me to mention the family name with the initials of the first and middle names, and some were reluctant about my mentioning their country.

 I have omitted some stories if they are very similar to other stories. In most cases, I paraphrased and edited the whole thing for reasons of style and language correctness.  The outcome has been this book, a book about real experiences of real people struggling with man’s main issue, i.e.,the search for the truth, since the search for it is not easy among the wide jungle of falsehood. Nevertheless, millions of people have never stopped searching for the truth, and many lucky thousands often find it every day, enjoy it, and live under its blessing.  I would like to sincerely congratulate the new embracers of Islam on the right choice they have made. In fact, their choice of Islam is the only right choice. Dr. Muhammad Ali Alkhuli

(1) FROM THE CROSS TO RESPONSIBILITY  My name is W.F. Hebb, 41 years. I noticed that Christianity could be summarized into a not very much convincing story, i. e., that God crucified his only son in order to save us and that if you believe in this crucifixion, you are saved. I could not see why God should kill His only son since killing is prohibited by God Himself. God orders us not to kill, but He Himself killed His own son. I could not either swallow the crucifixion of Jesus, assuming it happened, as a means to salvation becauseI could not figureouthow crucifying an innocent person would lead to others’ salvation.  I used to hear about Islam, and I was informed that Islam does negate Jesus’ crucifixion and does not accept the theory of salvation through crucifixion. The Islamic principle that salvation is guaranteed only throughfaithandgood deedsmakes more sense to me.

(2) THE FOUR GOSPELS My name is C.F. Guthrie, 47 years. I am a professor of physics. I used to readThe New Testamentwith its four gospels:the Gospel of Matthew, the Gospel of Mark, the Gospel of Luke,andthe Gospel of John.Very frequently, I noticed that there are many contradictions inside each gospel and many othercontradictionsthe gospels among themselves. I began to doubt the holiness ofThe New Testamentand wonder whether it is really God’s word.  It kept on persisting in my mind that ifThe New Testamenthad been God’s pure word, we should have had one gospel only and not four different andinter-contradictory ones. I looked deeper into the matter and came to know thatThe Holy Quranof Islam is in a better position to be God’s pure word becausewe actually have one version ofThe Holy Quran, not four, as is the case withthe Gospel.
