LETTERS FROM BELIEVERS ALL OVER THE WORLD
I am happily astonished at the number of true and courageous Muslims around the world who take the time to write down their support for God’s messenger, and their commitment to worshiping Allah ALONE, and upholding His word, the Quran ALONE. Here is just one example from Pakistan:
Dear respected Rashad: Al hamdo Lillah! He has heard my prayers. Today I received and read the M.P.’s of July & Sept 88, and decided I too must write, as I had from long ago wanted to.
In the summer of 1971,I was discussing with a cousin the plight of the Muslims, at being un-Islamic and of different sects—I preferred to be just a Muslim–and said, ‘If Allah Almighty would send a messenger (and why not now when we most need one) to unite & right these wrong-doer Muslims and other believers among ‘Ahle Kitab. After I had said it I wondered if this could happen in my lifetime, and if I would have the courage to stand up and accept him. Yes Allah be praised, He has in my lifetime, blessed me to be one to witness and accept you and your teachings of the Quran in its pure and clear sense.
