...Once upon a time, there was a God.
He was able to do anything, to know anything and to see anything.
One day, he told to his angels; "Today I'm going to make a new kind. To place him in Earth as my deputy,"
Angels hesitated; "A new kind! To make bloodshed and to corrupt the earth?"
God said "I know what I'm doing"
God thought "he must be a sign of me on Earth, he must be as perfect as possible,
I'll give him of my own soul, I'll give him of my wisdom and I'll make him better than any other of my creatures."
So, he made him in the best appearance, the best form and beauty and crowned him with knowledge and wisdom and logic.

But, Man - when came to existence- started to hide from God.
"No God created me, I was selected by the nature!"
"My wisdom is the result of my brain's evolution from apes'."
"I made God to rule with his name on the poor."
"I created logic, to clarify my thoughts."

Well, God still waited and gave him time, maybe one day he would return to him.
God said to himself "See his pride on me! When he was nothing at first, and now denies me!"

One day it'll get too late to return......

Surah 3: Verse 85
Whoever seeks a faith other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.

15:2
Again and again will those who disbelieve wish that they had bowed (to Allah's Will) in Islam.

21:108
Say: "What has come to me by inspiration is that your God is One God: will ye therefore bow to His Will (in Islam)?"

39:12
"And I am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah in Islam."

41:33
Who is better in speech than one who calls (men) to Allah, works righteousness, and says "I am of those who bow in Islam"?

43: 69
(Being) those who have believed in Our Signs and bowed (their wills to Ours) in Islam.

47 : 29
Do those having malady in their hearts think that Allah will never expose their grudges (against Islam)?

3 : 20
Wherefore if they contend with thee, say thou: have surrendered myself unto Allah and he who followeth me. And say thou unto those who have been vouchsafed the Book and unto the illiterates; do you (also) accept Islam? Then if they accept Islam, they are of a surety guided; and if they turn away, then upon thee is only the preaching, and Allah is Beholder of His bondsmen.

6: 125
So, whomsoever Allah wills to guide, He makes his heart wide open for Islam, and whomsoever He wills to let go astray, He makes his heart strait and constricted, (and he feels embracing Islam as difficult) as if he were climbing to the sky. In this way, Allah lays abomination on those who do not believe.

49 : 17
They impress on thee as 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.

2 : 133
Were ye witnesses when death appeared before Jacob? Behold, he said to his sons: "What will ye worship after me?" They said: "We shall worship thy God and the God of thy fathers―of Abraham Isma`il and Isaac,―the one (true) God to Him we bow (in Islam)."

2 : 136
Say ye: "We believe, in Allah and the revelation given to us and to Abraham Isma`il Isaac Jacob and the Tribes and that given to Moses and Jesus and that given to (all) Prophets from their Lord we make no difference between one and another of them and we bow to Allah (in Islam)."

2 - 208
O ye who believe! enter into Islam whole-heartedly; and follow not the footsteps of the Evil One; for he is to you an avowed enemy.


3 : 19
The Religion before Allah is Islam (submission to His will): nor did the people of the Book dissent therefrom except through envy of each other, after knowledge had come to them. But if any deny the Signs of Allah, Allah is swift in calling to account.

3 : 67
Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian, but he was true in faith and bowed his will to Allah's (which is Islam) and he joined not gods with Allah.

3 : 80
Nor would he instruct you to take angels and prophets for Lords and Patrons. What! Would he bid you to unbelief after ye have bowed your will (to Allah in Islam)?

3 : 83
Do they seek for other than the Religion of Allah?―While all creatures in the heavens and on earth have willing, or unwilling, bowed to His Will (accepted Islam), and to Him shall they all be brought back.

3 : 84
Say: "We believe in Allah, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Isma`il, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets, from their Lord; we make no distinction between one and another among them, and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)."

3 : 85
And whosoever will seek a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted of Him, and he shall be of the losers in the Hereafter.

3 : 102
O ye who believe! fear Allah as He should be feared, and die not except in a state of Islam.

5 : 44
It was We who revealed the Torah (to Moses); therein was guidance and light. By its standard have been judged the Jews, by the Prophet who bowed (as in Islam) to Allah's will, by the Rabbis and the Doctors of Law: for to them was entrusted the protection of Allah's Book, and they were witnesses thereto: therefore fear not men, but fear Me, and sell not My Signs for a miserable price. If any do fail to judge by (the light of) what Allah hath revealed, they are (no better than) Unbelievers.

6 : 14
Say: "Shall I take for my protector any other than Allah, the Maker of the heavens and the earth? And He is that feedeth but is not fed."  Say: "Nay! but I am commanded to be the first of those who bow to Allah (in Islam), and be not thou of the company of those who join gods with Allah."

6: 125
So whomsoever Allah willeth that he shall guide, He expoundeth his breast for Islam; and whomsoever He willeth that he shall send astray, He maketh his breast strait, narrow, as if he were mounting up into the sky, thus Allah layeth the abomination on those who believe not.

9 : 74
They swear by Allah that they said it not, but assuredly they said the word of infidelity and disbelieved after their Profession of Islam and they resolved that to which they could not attain. And they avenged not except for this that Allah and His apostle had enriched them out of His grace. If then they repent, it will be better for them, and if they turn away, Allah will torment them with an afflictive torment in the world and the Hereafter, and theirs shall be on the earth no friend nor helper.

9 : 100
The vanguard (of Islam)― the first of those who forsook (their homes) and of those who gave them aid, and (also) those who follow them in (all) good deeds― well― pleased is Allah with them, as are they with Him: for them hath He prepared Gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein forever: that is the Supreme Felicity.

9: 107
And (there are) those who have built a mosque to cause harm (to Islam) and to promote infidelity and to create dissention among the believers and to provide a station for one who has been at war with Allah and His Messenger even before. [QETafseerComment] They will certainly swear (and say), “We intended to do nothing but good.” Allah testifies that they are liars.

10 : 72
"But if ye turn back, (consider): no reward have I asked of you: my reward is only due from Allah, and I have been commanded to be of those who submit to Allah's Will (in Islam)."

10 : 90
We took the Children of Israel across the sea: Pharaoh and his hosts followed them in insolence and spite. At length, when overwhelmed with the flood, he said: "I believe that there is no god except Him Whom the Children of Israel believe in: I am of those who submit (to Allah in Islam)."

11 : 14
"If then they (your false gods) answer not your (call), know ye that this Revelation is sent down (replete) with the knowledge of Allah, and that there is no god but He! Will ye even then submit (to Islam)?"

16: 81
It is Allah who made out of the things He created, some things to give you shade; of the hills He made some for your shelter; He made you garments to protect you from heat, and coats of mail to protect you from your (mutual) violence. Thus does He complete his favours on you, that ye may surrender to His will (in Islam).

22: 34
To every people did We appoint rites (of sacrifice), that they might celebrate the name of Allah over the sustenance He gave them from animals (fit for food) but your God is one God: submit then your wills to Him (in Islam) and give thou the Good News to those who humble themselves

27 : 42
So when she arrived, she was asked "Is this thy throne?" She said "It was just like this; and knowledge was bestowed on us in advance of this, and we have submitted to Allah (in Islam)."

27 : 44
She was asked to enter that lofty Palace: but when she saw it, she thought it was a lake of water, and she (tucked up her skirts), uncovering her legs. He said. "This is but a palace paved smooth with slabs of glass." She said: "O my Lord! I have indeed wronged my soul: I do (now) submit (in Islam) with Solomon to the Lord of the Worlds."

27 : 81
Nor canst thou be a guide to the Blind, (to prevent them) from straying; only those wilt thou get to listen who believe in Our Signs and they will bow in Islam.

27: 91
For me, I have been commanded to serve the Lord of this City, Him Who has sanctified it and to Whom (belongs) all things: and I am commanded to be of those who bow in Islam to Allah's Will

 29 : 46
And dispute ye not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation) unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong (and injury): but say "We believe in the Revelation which has come down to us and in that which came down to you; Our God and your God is one; and it is to Him we bow (in Islam)."

30 : 53
Nor canst thou lead back the blind from their straying: only those wilt thou make to hear, who believe in Our Signs and submit (their wills in Islam).

39 : 22
Is one whose heart Allah has opened to Islam, so that he has received enlightenment from Allah, (no better than one hard-hearted)? Woe to those whose hearts are hardened against celebrating the praises of Allah! They are manifestly wandering (in error)!

40 : 66
Say: "I have been forbidden to invoke those whom ye invoke besides Allah― seeing that the Clear Signs have come to me from my Lord: and I have been commanded to submit (in Islam) to the Lord of the Worlds."

61 : 7
And who doeth greater wrong than he who inventeth a lie against Allah when he is summoned unto Al-Islam? And Allah guideth not wrongdoing folk.

63 : 3
That is because they declared faith (in Islam apparently), then disbelieved (secretly). Therefore a seal has been set on their hearts, and thus they do not understand.

72 : 14
And of us some are Muslims, and of us some are deviators. Then whosoever hath embraced Islam - such have endeavoured after a Path of rectitude.

2 : 221
Do not marry the polytheist women, unless they come to believe (in Islam); a Muslim slave-girl is better than a polytheist woman, even though she may attract you; and do not give (your women) in marriage to polytheist men, unless they come to believe; a Muslim slave is better than a polytheist, even though he may attract you. They invite to the Fire when Allah invites, by His will, to Paradise, and to forgiveness. He makes His verses clear to the people, so that they may heed the advice.

5 : 3
Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah, that which hath been killed by strangling, or by a violent blow, or by a headlong fall, or by being gored to death; that which hath been (partly) eaten by a wild animal; unless ye are able to slaughter it (in due form); that which is sacrificed on stone (altars); (forbidden) also is the division (of meat) by raffling with arrows: that is impiety. This day have those who reject Faith given up all hope of your religion: yet fear them not but fear Me. This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed my favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion. But if any is forced by hunger, with no inclination to transgression, Allah is indeed Oft-Forgiving Most Merciful.

9 : 74
They swear by Allah that they said nothing (evil), but indeed they uttered blasphemy, and they did it after accepting Islam; and they meditated a plot which they were unable to carry out: this revenge of theirs was (their) only return for the bounty with which Allah and His Messenger had enriched them! If they repent, it will be best for them; but if they turn back (to their evil ways), Allah will punish them with a grievous penalty in this life and in the Hereafter: they shall have none on earth to protect or help them.

46 : 15
We have enjoined on man Kindness to his parents: in pain did his mother bear him, and in pain did she give him birth. The carrying of the (child) to his weaning is (a period of) thirty months. At length, when he reaches the age of full strength and attains forty years, he says "O my Lord! Grant me that I may be grateful for Thy favour which Thou hast bestowed upon me, and upon both my parents, and that I may work righteousness such as Thou mayest approve; and be gracious to me in my issue. Truly have I turned to Thee and truly do I bow (to Thee) in Islam.

A very close discussion with God:

As a youth I had some questions that I asked them from God and got His answers through Quran.

Q. 3: My God, where are you?
«وَ إِذا سَأَلَکَ عِبادِی عَنِّی فَإِنِّی قَرِیبٌ أُجِیبُ دَعْوَةَ الدَّاعِ إِذا دَعانِ فَلْیَسْتَجِیبُوا لِی وَ لْیُؤْمِنُوا بِی لَعَلَّهُمْ یَرْشُدُونَ»(بقره/۱۸۶)
And when My obedient worshippers Ask you[ O, Messenger! ], concerning Me, then[ answer them on My behalf ]:" I[ the Owner of Glory ]am indeed near To them; I respond to the invocation Of the supplicant when he calls on Me, So they should obey My Call and Believe in Me, so that they may be led Aright."(Baghare:186)
-----------------------------
Q. 4: Should I despair of your grace, my God?
«وَ لا تَیْأَسُوا مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِنَّهُ لا یَیْأَسُ مِنْ رَوْحِ اللَّهِ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الْکافِرُونَ» (یوسف/۸۷)

«وَ إِنْ أَحَدٌ مِنَ الْمُشْرِکِینَ اسْتَجارَکَ فَأَجِرْهُ حَتَّى یَسْمَعَ کَلامَ اللَّهِ ثُمَّ أَبْلِغْهُ مَأْمَنَهُ ذلِکَ بِأَنَّهُمْ قَوْمٌ لا یَعْلَمُونَ»(توبه/۶)
And if any one of the idolaters Seeks refuge in you,[ O, Messenger ]Grant him, so that he may hear The Word of Allah and then escort him To where he can be secured, that is Because they are a people who lack Knowledge[ and their disbelief is due to Their ignorance .(Tube: 6)

Question 21 - Why do Muslims call their religious book (Quran) a miracle?

Answer:

1. Prophet of Islam was illiterate, whereas, the Holy Book was full of complicated philosophical and logical instructions, scientific facts, and the news of the previous Holy Books which indicates that Quran is not the word of human being but an eternal and divine miracle. God has referred to Prophet Muhammad as illiterate several times in Quran:

"And you did not recite before it any scripture, nor did you inscribe one with your right hand. Otherwise the falsifiers would have had [cause for] doubt."  (48- Al-Ankabout)(Surah 29)
2. Complete coherence among the verses (from the beginning till the end) whereas being revealed gradually over 23 years in different situations (ward, peace, failure, victory, and etc.) confirms that This Book is not written by man. As the Quran states:
"Then do they not reflect upon the Qur'an? If it had been from [any] other than Allah, they would have found within it much contradiction."     (82-An-Nisa)(Surah 4)
3. Miracle on legislation: Quran attention to legislation in confirmed and indefectible rights as well as equality in legislation is another aspect of its miraculousnees which makes the Holy Quran unique and eternal. For instance, when Quran expresses the attributes of the descent servants it verbalizes:
"And [they are] those who, when they spend, do so not excessively or sparingly but are ever, between that, [justly] moderate." (67-Al-Furghan)(Surah 25)
4. Many sibylline news…
5. Stories of the previous Prophets…
6. Mysteries of creation( living creatures having couple and being pair, movement of the earth, the earth being circle, insemination, unknown continents, revolution of the moon in distinctive orbit, and etc.
7. Asking the opponents of Quran to bring a chapter (Surah), 10 chapters, or even a whole book like Quran.
8. If you wish to study more about it you can refer to the book “Quran Science” written by Ayatollah Ma’refat, “Al-Etghan” by Siyooti, or “expressing Science and general matters in Quran” by Ayatollah Khoyee.
