their problems. They think that they are strengthening their faith but little do they know that their souls are slowly deteriorating and are becoming weaker and weaker.

It is as if they are given a hollow pill, a placebo, and are told that their pain will go away and their disease will be cured. Psychologically this hollow pill may work and their pain may be temporarily relieved but the real problem, the disease, will continue to eat their body away. There will come a day when they will realize that they have been deceived, but on that day it will be too late: their bodies will be feeble, their faith will be weak, and their souls will be malnourished and deprived.

If you are going to devote your whole life to the practice of one religion, it is essential that you carefully examine all the possibilities and fulfill the responsibility that is associated with your freedom of choice. If you do this, God willing you will embark upon the same path that I did. You will choose Islam (Submission) as your way of life.

They Followed Their Parents Blindly

[37:69-70]  They found their parents astray. And they blindly followed in their footsteps.

[43:22]  The fact is that: they said, "We found our parents carrying on certain practices, and we are following in their footsteps."

[43:23]  Invariably, when we sent a warner to any community, the leaders of that community would say, "We found our parents following certain practices, and we will continue in their footsteps."

We Are Born With Instinctive Knowledge About God

[7:172]  Recall that your Lord summoned all the descendants of Adam, and had them bear witness for themselves: "Am I not your Lord?" They all said, "Yes. We bear witness." Thus, you cannot say on the Day of Resurrection, "We were not aware of this."

[7:173]  Nor can you say, "It was our parents who practiced idolatry, and we simply followed in their footsteps. Will You punish us because of what others have innovated?"

[6:89-90]  Those were the ones to whom we have given the scripture, wisdom, and prophethood.... These are the ones guided by GOD; you shall be guided in their footsteps. Say, "I do not ask you for any wage. This is but a message for all the people."
