WHY DID I EMBRACE ISLAM?
This is an extract from Dr. Gronier, a French MP, who embraced Islam.
the reason of embracing Islam he said, I read all of the Ayat (Quranic
which have a relation to medical, health, and natural sciences that I
before and have a wide knowledge of. I found that these verses are
compatible with and give a picture of our modern sciences. Thus, I
Islam as it was obvious that Muhammad revealed the Absolute Truth more
thousand years ago. Had every specialist, artist or scientist compared
Quranic verses to his own specialization, beyond the shadow of doubt
embrace Islam, especially if he has a sound mentality and goodwill to
the truth and not a mentally defective person with the intentions of

Here are two Hadith ( traditional sayings of prophet mohummed ) that
two prophecies that have come true .
It is narrated in Sahih Muslim that Allah's Apostle (peace be upon
him) said to

about al-Ihsan (performance of good deeds). He (the Holy Prophet)
said: That you

Man installed hundreds of marine stations to study the characteristics

characteristics distinguished one sea from another. But why do these

besides other factors that cause sea water to be in continuous
turbulence, such as surface and internal waves and sea currents?
The answer appeared for the first time in scientific books in 1361 AH/
Extensive studies of marine characteristics revealed that there are
barriers separating neighboring seas and maintaining the distinctive
of each sea with respect to density, salinity, marine life,
solubility of oxygen in water.
There are large waves, strong currents, and tides in the Mediterranean

After 1962 AD there was known the role of sea barriers in modifying
properties of the water masses that pass from one sea to another, to
sea from overwhelming the other. So salty seas retain their own
boundaries by virtue of these barriers.
A field study comparing the waters of Oman Gulf and those of the

prevalent vegetation and the barrier separating them.
About a hundred years of research and study has been required to

We can conclude the following from the discussion above:

Man did not know that the water masses of the two seas are separated
by a water

Man did not apply this rule to all seas that meet together except

Now then, did Allahâ€™s Messenger (Peace be upon him) own stations and

masses? Did he carry out a comprehensive surveying process, although

particularly in the field of seas? Were, at the time of Allahâ€™s

As for going around the Kaaba anticlockwise, it is consistent with the
of the whole universe: from the atom to the galaxy. Going around is a
cosmological phenomenon that includes everything. The electron goes
nucleus, the moons go around their planets, the planets go around
the suns and the stars go around the centers of their galaxies, and
goes around in its paths; all these movements are anticlockwise. It is

it was an
easy way to track the answers for my doubts and questions. It took me

and a perfect act of worship, it seems as if he really feels that he
is at the
hands of God.
I started attending the mosque where I could find many other Canadian
sisters, who encouraged me to follow my track to Islam. I wore the
veil in an
attempt to test my will, and two weeks later came the true moment when
