I was asked a moment ago why did I embrace Islam by a brother who happens to be quite the optimistic lad. I had been born into a Christian family 54 years ago, but was an agnostic for most of my life.
Why agnostic you may ask me today, but I’m not the kind of guy who likes to lie. Those who claim there’s no God at all, are believers in something, but I just didn't know, so I couldn't make that claim, because I’m not that kind of fool.
I woke up this morning before the crack of dawn, I said my Fajr prayers, and thanked Allah for all that I have. Now I’m prepared to tell you why I say, Ash-hadu An laa Elaha Ella Allah wa Ash-hadu anna Muhammadan Rasulu Allah.
In reality it’s quite simple if you want to know the truth. I used logic & reason, while I connected all the dots. There’s no reason at all to think that a man can be God if you look to the book that explains the word for all. I’m not talking about the Bible or Qur’an, simply because one man’s scripture is another man’s lie. The book I speak of is the one with all the words, and the meaning of them also – it’s the dictionary dude (& dudettes too).
God is defined as the Ultimate Reality and the Creator of everything, while man is the male gender of the species Homo Sapiens I know that mankind can’t create anything from nothing, and nothing can be compared to the concept known as God. Stephen Hawking is a man who claims to know it all, but all Stephen is Hawking is Nothing as his God. He claims that Nothing was here before it all, and after the big bang there’s a reason for everything. So, in my mind God is Reason, and in Stephen’s mind is Nothing as the reason for it all.
And what of the claim that Muhammad (ṣall Allāhu ʿalay-hi wa-sallam) was the last prophet? That’s easy to substantiate when you know the meaning of the word. But what of those who claimed to be a prophet in these latter days? How could that be true, when they believe that God was a man? I've already covered that subject.
And what do you make of the fact that Muslim women cover their head? To tell you the truth it’s more than that, in reality it's all about modesty. If you take the time to think it through you may begin to understand. If a woman dresses like a slut, she’ll just receive the gaze of men, and it’s as simple as that.
Islam isn't all that strange if you understand the truth. Much of what it asks of you can be found in other faiths. Buddha was a man who some may worship as a god, but he was just a guy who tried to tell it like it is. He was born with a silver spoon in his mouth, but spit it out to find himself. When he died he wasn't rich, but he had his peace of mind. All he did was done with words, and he spoke about responsibility for what you think & do.
That’s the same that Jesus 1.0 did, regardless what anyone believes. I've been labeled Mr. Jesus 2.3, and I’m tellin’ you the same thing too. Freedom is just another word for Nirvana, and that blissful easy feeling one gets when they submit to the Will of God.
Stephen is Hawking something called the Big Bang that started it all, but for all we know he may be wrong- because the guy wasn't there you know. All he’s done is to look at the signs, and connected all the dots. That’s what I've done when I make the claim that I’m virtually Jesus Christ, and I’m the master of my own domain. I know my reason for being here, and thank Allah for giving me life.
I was born Daniel Harold McFarling, and those words have meaning too. Daniel was a Prophet of God in the Judeo-Christian realm. What he did was interpret dreams, and it means ‘God is my Judge’ also. Harold was a leader of a great army long ago, but it also means ‘one who proclaims’, isn't that what Jesus 1.0 did also? As God is my Judge, I’m here to proclaim what in reality is going on. It’s all following the master’s plan that no man can ever change, regardless what you hope for.
This is the same thing our scientists proclaim, if you take the time to think it through. They've got all their rules & theories to, to explain what’s happening now. Now you can believe they've got it right, but do you understand what it means? It means there’s nothing wrong in this here world, what’s wrong is how you perceive most everything, and that’s something you can be sure of.
The Surahs of the Noble Qur’an can help you to understand, but you've gotta’ open your mind, get your head out of the sand, & read between the lines. It’s all about the different mindsets of man, and what it takes to make a just society for those who want their peace on earth. For those of you who are too selfish for that, there’s more to than meets the eye. There’s plenty there to help you out, if you want your peace of mind, before you rest in peace – but you've gotta’ give it an honest try!
Just don’t confuse the Muslim mind, with the concept known as Islam. One is contained in the head of men, and the other was delivered by an angel – who happens to be known as Gabriel. Call it my dumb luck, coincidence, or synchronicity if you want too, but in my mind it’s the Will of God that I was nurtured in the womb of Gabrielle, and delivered to tell you the truth.
Another think I’ll let you know about is the Mary in my life. She’s a godmother I’ll let you know, but in reality she’s not my own, and then there’s Marion also. She’s the one who is married to my father. Have you connected all the dots yet?
And then there’s the two brown people, one a man, and the other a woman? The both of them have written some books that claim Jesus moved to France. It just happens to be true that I’m a French citizen too. What do you think of that? I hope you know I didn't make this up, and I've got all the proof for you!
I do believe that’s enough for now, but if you want to know more about me, all you've gotta’ do my friends is ask, you shall receive.
Peace be with each & everyone of you who are searching for the truth, and may you discover what your heart desires. For the rest of you, with your loved ones too, may you live long & prosper also. Just remember we’re all in this together, and don’t forget that when all is said & done my friends, you can’t take anything with you when you’re gone!
With an Everlasting love,
Now, & forever Always,
Me, myself, & i
