Many verses have been direct reasons for idolaters to became Muslims at early era of Islam, during the time of the revelation of the Qur’an. Today these verses still have the same power to touch non-Muslims hearts and minds. Should we Muslims humble our hearts to Allah, too…
This atheist was denying the existence of God and mock at those who believe.
He was proud of his disbelief and being an atheist, he always say: “If Allah exists, why He does not show up himself?”
Allah willing to teach him an unexpectedly lesson.
So, he dreamt as if he were drowning and at the moment he came close to death he found himself screaming: “O God!”
He woke up upon his cry, both his body and the deep of himself were shaking. He was astonished, whispering to himself: “how could it be! how could I feel the presence of God while I’m Ultra-atheist?”
The next day the same scene repeated in his dream, and he resorts to God the moment he is about to get drowned, and he woke up frightened, but intended to read the Qur’an.
To his astonishment, he was going through a verse describing himself drowning and resorts only to God to save him!
He has never expected to read such a meaning in the Qur’an!:
“And when harm touches you upon the sea, those that you call upon vanish from you except Him (Allah Alone). But when He brings you safe to land, you turn away (from Him). And man is ever ungrateful. (“—Al-Israa, verse 67).
He said at once, “O, these words couldn’t be issued by a man who lived 1400 years ago in a desert, didn’’t even sail even once during his lifetime. How could a man like him describe exactly the feelings for who ever was drowning. O, Allah, he is a truthful prophet. Sincere in his claim”.
This verse was the reason he became a Muslim. Praise be to Allah for the blessing of Islam.
