An Atheist is an individual who has no belief in a God, the existence of God or that a God creates anything.

A 22-year-old American, who at 18 disregarded religion, didn’t feel the need for a God and believed there wasn’t enough evidence to prove a God created all forms of life.

At 20, he began disregarding online content from other atheists who he felt were “biased” – atheists only share jaundiced data they receive from other atheists, nothing concrete and justifiable, merely enough to mislead the blinded.

Allah says in the Qu’ran: “Allah has set a seal upon their hearts and upon their hearing, and over their vision is a veil. And for them is a great punishment.” (Al-Baqarah [2]:7)

The former atheist came across this verse, which compelled him to study the Qur’an further. He realised that, unlike other religious books, the Qur’an has no contradictions and has never been changed or altered to benefit man.

He discovered several scientific miracles in the Qur’an, and the Noble book answered every question.

“He has let loose the two seas (the salt water and the sweet) meeting together. Between them is a barrier which none of them can transgress.” (ar-Rahman 55:19-20)

At 22, the young American reverted to Islam and continues to spread Islam amongst Americans and globally. Every day, many worldwide listening to the Qur’an find their hearts captured by its message, whether they understand or not.

“You surely cannot guide whoever you like O, Prophet, but it is Allah Who guides whoever He wills, and He knows best who are fit to be guided.” (Surah Qasas 56)

Countless people have accepted the message and blessings of the world’s most incredible gift, “Al Qur’an.”
