To My Beloved Mother – Invitation to Islam

Author’s Introduction: Before I embraced Islam, I was a Hindu from the Agarwal family. I was 9 years old when my father passed away. After the demise of my father, my elder brother became the head of the family. Because of his tolerance, I always got his support and encouragement. But my mother neither liked my embracing of Islam nor any of my Islamic education away from her, even though I visited her quite often. My earnest desire was for her to become
one of the followers of the greatest religion on earth but her desire was opposite to mine. She wished that I leave this religion as soon as possible and revert to the old one. But this desire of hers was due to a reason – the reason being the great love she had for me. Thus, she was hurt psychologically at my acceptance of Islam. Such a behavior was expected and natural because she was ignorant about Islam.
When I was born, our family gurus foretold many a thing about me to my mother among which was: ‘Your son will never be yours.’ When I embraced Islam, she felt that the priest’s prediction became true. Consequently, she would remind me of his prophecy and warn me and she tried her best to keep me away from Islam.
Through this letter I tried to remove her misconceptions about Islam and invited her towards the right way – the way
of Islam. My intention was to not only remove the misconceptions she had about me and Islam, but to also make clear to her the truth about Islam, so that she may accept it and enter Paradise and be saved from the torments of Hell-Fire.
After 3 years of continuous discussions and letters, Allah bestowed His Mercy upon her and she was guided to Islam. She felt guilty of her past behavior towards Islam. Today, my mother is satisfied and firm on the path of Islam.
