Two Sunnats became the Cause of Embracing Islam

Hadhrat Mufti Ebrahim Salejee Saheb (Daamat Barakaatuhu) mentioned: “Once I met a person who related to me the cause of him embracing Islam.” He explained: “I took a liking for the topee which I would see the Muslims wearing. So I also started wearing the topee though till then I had not yet embraced Islam. Not long thereafter I met a Muslim who greeted me with salaam – Seeing the topee on my head, perhaps he thought I was a Muslim -. I asked him to explain to me the meaning of Salaam. Thereupon he translated the Salaam for me, which translates as “May peace, mercy and the blessings of Allah Ta'ala continue to be showered upon you”. I was so emotionally touched by the greeting of Islam that I immediately embraced Islam.”

Hadhrat Mufti Saheb thereafter explained: “After analysing this incident, I concluded that it was just two Sunnats that became the cause of this person embracing Islam. The first was the love for the topee and the second was Salaam. Nabi (Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam) said:


“You will never gain entry into paradise unless you accept Imaan, and your Imaan will never reach perfection unless you have true love for one another. Should I not show you a formula which will generate love amongst yourselves? Make salaam a common practice amongst you.”
