Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. here condesnsed some of the reasons why people choose Islam:
The morality of Muhammad before and after being appointed by God, he never indulged himself in any of the pagan immoralities before and after being appointed a prophet.
We have sufficient account about Muhammad before and after he was appointed a prophet; the time of his birth, the place of his birth, his habits, his pains, what he liked and what he didn't like, his family, where and when he died. We don't have similar information about any prophet like that we have about Muhammd.
His prophecies that came true before his contemporary believers and even we see some of his prophecies that are fulfilled before our eyes.
His physical miracles that outnumbered all the physical miracles of the Holy Scriptures.
The divine support that accompanied him wheereever he went.
His truimph over all his enemies and his success in spreading his call. Is it logically accepted that God might support an imposter?!
About the Quran
The Holy Quran is the Holy Book which was revealed to Muhammad, it is the sole book that remained untouched, no single word was changed. It is the same book in every corner of the world, it is the sole book that presents scientific and historical evidences to its divine source. It is the sole book that that you can read it in the same languge and wording as it was revealed to its prophet; it is the sole book that accepts challenge. No humans, regardless of his culture background, could produce a single verse like its, no human could prove that it is not a divine book. In fact no human could author a book and then calls people to challenge it but the Holy Quran challenges people who disbelieve to produce just one verse like its. The challenge is still open.
And if you are in doubt about what We have sent down upon Our Servant [Muhammad], then produce a surah the like thereof and call upon your witnesses other than Allah, if you should be truthful.(2:23)
Quran's challenge to people on thinking and reflection
The Quran on numerous occasions challenges humanity at large to think, reflect and ponder over their affairs. Here is some of what the Quran states:
Do they not think deeply (in their ownselves) about themselves (how Allah created them from nothing, and similarly He will resurrect them)? Allah has created not the heavens and the earth, and all that is between them, except with truth and for an appointed term. And indeed many of mankind deny the Meeting with their Lord. (Ar-Room, Chapter #30, Verse #8)
He it is Who has appointed for you the night that you may rest therein, and the day to make things visible (to you). Verily, in this are Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) for a people who listen (i.e. those who think deeply). (Yunus, Chapter #10, Verse #67)
Does man think that he will be left Suda (neglected without being punished or rewarded for the obligatory duties enjoined by his Lord (Allah) on him)? (Al-Qiyama, Chapter #75, Verse #36)
To the rejecters of truth the Quran states: Or do you think that most of them hear or understand? They are only like cattle; nay, they are even farther astray from the Path. (i.e. even worst than cattle). (Al-Furqan, Chapter #25, Verse #44)
Had We sent down this Quran on a mountain, you would surely have seen it humbling itself and rending asunder by the fear of Allah. Such are the parables which We put forward to mankind that they may reflect . (Al-Hashr, Chapter #59, Verse #21)
