How I Came To Islam...Abdur Rahim Green

" I come from  a place where there are Muslims but no Islam to your place where there is Islam but no Muslim.."
 Iqbal on visiting Paris many  years ago ,at the turn of the last century.

Surah Al-Ikhlas
In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Say: He is Allah, the One! (1) Allah, the eternally Besought of all! (2)He begetteth not nor was begotten. (3) And there is none comparable unto Him. (4)
translation of the Holy Quran by Pickthal, surah al ikhlas, 112 : 1-4

Your God is One God; there is no God save Him, the Beneficent, the Merciful. (163) Lo! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the difference of night and day, and the ships which run upon the sea with that which is of use to men, and the water which Allah sendeth down from the sky, thereby reviving the earth after its death, and dispersing all kinds of beasts therein, and (in) the ordinance of the winds, and the clouds obedient between heaven and earth: are signs (of Allah's Sovereignty) for people who have sense. (164) 
translation of the Holy Quran by Pickthal, surah al Baqarah, The Cow, 2 : 163 - 164

A  ' husnul khatimah ' ending for Mr Green Senior, Alhamdullillah.
