The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours - it is an amazing journey - and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.

pearl of wisdom~~

The strangest question I have ever been asked is: why are you Muslim?

I find that question strange because I have never thought of a reason.

My 'Muslimness' comes naturally to me; no other alternative has ever crossed my mind.

I am Muslim because the only logical explanation of all the wonder in the universe and in ourselves is that a Creator exists.

Every breath I take is a mercy from that Creator.

To deny God, I would be denying myself and my life.

Indeed, I see God's miracles everywhere, I cannot but love, worship and obey Him.

Through God's commands, revealed in the Qur'an and the examples of the Prophet
Muhammad, I know exactly how to live my life.

I am free to choose between peace and happiness by becoming a part of God's greater design, and the nightmare of rejecting my Creator's guidance.

I am Muslim because I choose to be logical and far-sighted.

I see the ligic of Islam and am far-sighted enough to plan for the eternity that God has offered.
