London (IINA) - Arthur Alison, a UK professor who is the head of the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of London, got acquainted with Islam and converted during his course of study of religions.
According to Professor Alison, Islam is the religion of truth and inborn nature with which Allah has created man. He also said he bears witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him) is the Prophet of Allah, Nigerian newspaper NAIJ reported.
In an interview with an Arabic-weekly magazine, the professor narrated the story of his conversion to Islam saying: In the course of my study of psychology and related subjects as the president of the British Society for Psychological and Spiritual Studies, I got acquainted with religions. I studied Hinduism, Buddhism and some other religions and creeds. When I studied Islam, I compared it to other faiths.
"During the conference on Medical Illimitability in the Qur'an, I could realize that the difference was significant. Then I was convinced that Islam is the most proper religion that befits my inborn nature and conduct. In the heart of my heart, I had felt that God is controlling the Universe. He is the Creator.
Therefore, when I studied Islam, I found that it did not conflict with reason and science. I believe that is the revealed religion from the one and only God. As I witnessed the truth, I uttered the two testimonies. The moment I uttered Shahadah, I was overwhelmed by a strange and ineffable feeling mingled with ease, comfort, and satisfaction.
"It is Allah Who takes away the souls at the time of their death, and those that die not during their sleep. He keeps those (souls) for which He has ordained death and sends the rest for a term appointed. Verily, in these are signs for people who think deeply," Prof Alison noted.
