49:17 Islam is a privilege

1 min read

They impress on thee as a favour that they have embraced Islam. Say, “Count not your Islam as a favour upon me: Nay, Allah has conferred a favour upon you that He has guided you to the faith, if ye be true and sincere.

Islam in itself is a precious privilege. By
accepting it we confer no favour on its preacher or on
any community. If the acceptance is from the heart, it is
a great favour done to those who accept, that the Light
of Allah has entered their hearts and they have received
guidance.
