If Allah says that whoever is not guided then no-one can guide him (Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 30 Surah Rom verse 29: Nay!!! The wrong-doers (merely) follow their own lusts being devoid of knowledge. But who will guide those whom Allah leaves astray? To them there will be no helpers), then say if someone's a Christian (no offence to those Christians out there, but this IS an islamic site) so he's lead astray, then he converts with the help of Imams or something who inspired him, and he is Now a Muslim so he is guided, then isn't that proving that verse wrong?
The question has been closed for the following reason "The question is answered, right answer was accepted" by sadie Oct 25 at 02:12
Beloved the answer to this is very simple, Allah doesnot choose who is guided, we make that choice, what the ayah is talking about are those who has earned the title ABLASA meaning they have lost all hope of Allah's mercy and guidance, this is do to their following the waswas of the shatan which has them following their vain desires clinging to the life of this world. If you read the next verse it is clear that whom Allah is addressing are those who will not hear the call of islam and this is by their choice. And for these there is no helper, Allah azza wal jall tells us: "so when they negate the warning with which they have been reminded. We open to them the gates of every pleasant thing, until in the midst of their enjoyment in that which they are given, all of a sudden, We call them to account and plunged them into destruction. " (6:44) Now my brother when one hears the call and he accepts the truth of the call then this one has stepped on the path to guidance and he is not like one who has lost all hope. The conclusion of your question stems from your lack of knowledge, and one should not speak without knowledge. Salaam
You yaqin say that Allah does not choose who is guided, but if Allah does not choose who is guided then how can you say that you are guided?
Beloved Muslim and slave of Allah the Almighty,
In answer to your question regarding doubts in Allah, first Im very happy that you have come here seeking the solution to your problems.
In Islam, if you have any confusion, it is always good to ask a question and clarify that so that you become stronger in faith. Even if you dont know the answer to the question, rest assured there is an answer and ask the question and do not doubt. I am very happy that you asked the question, seeking to free yourself from any doubt that may arise, and so that you would become stronger in your belief in Allah. Just be careful how you ask the question. Always ask questions to increase you in faith, try searching www.islamqa.com and in www.assimalhakeem.net you can actually send your question to the imam.
I pray that Allah (Subhanahu WataAla) cures you from such doubts.
Remember brother, do not doubt Allah, ever.
The kuffar who mock Islam, pursue their vain desires, and indulge themselves in sin: Indeed they will come to know the reality very soon. Death will come to everyone, and they will know very soon about the consequences of their mockery.
Remember the day of judgement. The day about which there is no doubt. The day about which Allah says (in translation):
On the Day you shall see the believing men and the believing women their light running forward before them and by their right hands. Glad tidings for you this Day! Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever! Truly, this is the great success!
On the Day when the hypocrites men and women will say to the believers: "Wait for us! Let us get something from your light!" It will be said: "Go back to your rear! Then seek a light!" So a wall will be put up between them, with a gate therein. Inside it will be mercy, and outside it will be torment."
(The hypocrites) will call the believers: "Were we not with you?" The believers will reply: "Yes! But you led yourselves into temptations, you looked forward for our destruction; you doubted (in Faith); and you were deceived by false desires, till the Command of Allah came to pass. And the chief deceiver (Satan) deceived you in respect of Allah."
So this Day no ransom shall be taken from you, nor of those who disbelieved. Your abode is the Fire, that is the proper place for you, and worst indeed is that destination.
Has not the time come for the hearts of those who believe to be affected by Allah's Reminder (this Quran), and that which has been revealed of the truth, lest they become as those who received the Scripture before, and the term was prolonged for them and so their hearts were hardened? And many of them were fasiqoon (rebellious, disobedient to Allah.)
Know that Allah gives life to the earth after its death. Indeed We have made clear the signs to you, if you but understand.
(Translation of the Quran. 57:12-17)
