ISLAM

Therefore, being a disbeliever is the worst possible thing. That is why a person who has worked with the pure intention of only serving humanity and as a result has brought about developments that are beneficial for humanity, while they were accomplished under the most difficult conditions of risking his health and life, but who has not been converted to Islam and died in the state of “disbelief” (kufr) will not be exempted from the punishment for disbelief despite his good deeds. Nonetheless, in Allahu ta’ala’s view, the punishment for those hypocrites who committed every sort of evil and fraud and who pretended to worship, will be much worse. Their pretending to be Muslims will not protect them from the torment which they deserve because of the disbelief in their hearts.

Ottoman history gives a record of many commanders, many men of knowledge and science who had formerly been Christians and who eventually accepted Islam and subsequently performed many services to the religion.

Ismail Hakki Effendi (rahima-hullahu ta’ala) passed away in Bursa in the year 1137 [1725]. His explanation of the Qur’an al-karim, namely Ruh-al-bayan, which consists of ten volumes, is esteemed highly by Islamic savants (rahima-humullahu ta’ala) all over the world. He said after finishing the interpretation of the sixth juz: “My shaikh [master, teacher] was the scholar of his time. When he was told that some Jews and Christians behaved honestly and truly and did favors for everybody, he responded, “Being so is a sign which is peculiar to those who will be given eternal felicity. It is hoped that those who have such qualities will attain iman (faith) and tawhid and that their end will be salvation. ” This quotation from a book of explanation is another proof for our words above.
