  8. 8. All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015) Among the reasons why the Qur’an was sent down, and the teachings of our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.a.w., is “to warn those who say: "Allah has taken to Himself a son.” As converts/reverts/Balik-Islam, who I believe to be mostly from the Catholics-Christian faith, all of you would most likely be confronted and challenged by your family-and- friends from this previous faith. Therefore, what I shall present and share with you today, will be the necessary knowledge, which, guided by Al-Qur’an, this will help to eradicate whatever false-notion you may still have about your previous faith, eradicate doubts and replace it with certainty of the truth of Al-Islam. Also it can assist in preparing ourselves to become witnesses of Islam and inviting them towards the truth.
