This initiative was first launched on January 14, 2006 for two reasons:
- As a means of educating and inviting visitors to accept Islam.
- Refuting the ever increasing global spread of disinformation, misconceptions and distortions against this most beautiful and balanced religion of Allah.
Allah has provided the Muslims with the Truth. With this Truth has come the responsibility of ‘truth living’ and its dissemination to those unaware.
For the Muslims, knowledge of Allah, His last and final Messenger Muhammad (upon whom be the peace and blessings of Allah), and His religion, as understood and implemented by the Pious Predecessors, and based upon authentic evidences, is the most important type of knowledge. As this precious gift is assimilated, it must also be put into practice and sincerely acted upon seeking only the pleasure of Allah, and no other reason. However, it does not end there. Once it is assimilated and acted upon, the bearer must thereafter jettison this load of responsibility by inviting and calling people to accept and embrace this Truth.
After fulfilling the first two categories:
- Acquiring Knowledge, as Allaah has ordered them with the command:
“Have knowledge of Laa ilaaha illAllah (None has the right to be worshipped in Truth except Allah)…” (Qur’an 47:19).
- Then, acting upon this knowledge: “…and then seek the forgiveness of Allah” (Qur’an 47:19), by putting the knowledge into practice and worshipping Him only in the way He has instructed.
Muslims must propagate this Truth and purpose of life by inviting their family, next of kin, kith, neighbours, and everyone else, in fulfilment of the command of their Lord: “Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom, and a beautiful mode of preaching, and debate with them in the ways that are best. Truly, your Lord knows best who has gone astray from His path, and He is best aware of those who are guided” (Qur’an 16:125).
Allah has preferred the active role of dissemination in opposition to the passive, lethargic approach of many of the adherents of other religions. Indeed, Allah has warned the Muslims that they will remain successful as long as they “enjoin all that is good (as defined by Allah, the all-Wise) and forbid all that is evil (again as defined by Allah, the all-Wise)”; and it is in the fulfilment of this objective that a Muslim will be able to literally prove his/ her belief in Allah. Without carrying out the enjoining of good and the forbiding of evil, the Muslims will not be successful, just as He says: “You are the best nation ever raised up among mankind. (Why?) You enjoin all that is good and you forbid all that is evil and (by doing this) you believe in Allah” (Qur’an 3:110).
As Muslims we believe that “the only religion acceptable to Allah is Islam” (Qur’an 3:19), and that “whoever follows a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him and in the hereafter he shall be from among the losers” (Qur’an 3:85). Hence, we have been instructed to invite mankind to this singular truth, which is the purpose behind the establishment of this website.
We want to acquire nothing except the pleasure of Allah and seek only His Face as we endeavour to call our Sikh friends to the Truth of Islam. However, we will do this based upon the Qur’anic criteria:
- With Wisdom.
- A beautiful mode of preaching.
- And to debate in the way that is best.
Though we recognise that this website may cause offence to those Sikhs unfamiliar with our approach, we hope and pray that the above explanation has briefly elucidated the motivation of the Muslim in calling actively to this beautiful religion of justice.
Indeed, this life is a test and those failing this test will face the consequences. Those who accept the Truth when presented, then for them there is guaranteed ease on the Day of Judgment when humankind shall be resurrected and questioned about how they lived life. But, as for those who arrogantly reject the Truth by falling victim to their ego in choosing to follow their vain desires and personalised views, for them will be a day of severe hardship and eternal regret and sorrow.
You will die and you will face your Lord for judgment very soon; and the difference between acquiring His Divine Pleasure and incurring His Divine Wrath and Just Punishment is a belief in and complete acceptance of the most empowering concept given to humankind (their purpose in life): encompassed by the testification of correct faith in Allah:
LAA ILAAHA ILL-ALLAH MUHAMMAD AR-RASOOL ALLAH
(I bear witness and testify that) None has the right to be worshipped in truth except Allah (alone) and that none has the right to followed in truth except Muhammad the (last and final) Messenger of Allah.
