Cat Stevens: How I came to Islam

By: Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens)

All I have to say is all what you know already, to confirm what you already know, the message of the Prophet (peace be upon him) as given by God – the Religion of Truth. As human beings we are given a consciousness and a duty that has placed us at the top of creation. Man is created to be God’s deputy on earth, and it is important to realize the obligation to rid ourselves of all illusions and to make our lives a preparation for the next life. Anybody who misses this chance is not likely to be given another, to be brought back again and again, because it says in Qur’an Majeed that when man is brought to account, he will say,
“O Lord, send us back and give us another chance.” The Lord will say, “If I send you back you will do the same.”

Following September 11 Events:The Italian Artist Who Reverted to ISLAM:I discovered that my previous information about ISLAM was all based on lies.

Giovanni Ferrotti is the ex-name of Muhammad Ferroti, the reputed Italian painter, who painted scenery for long years but could not understand what they meant until he embraced Islam. He said: “When I embraced Islam and learned the rules of Islam, I knew why I was living and the purpose of this life. I learned that the whole universe is AIIah’s and that he ordered us to deliberate on this great creation.
