She Left Islam Because She Misunderstood Salvation in Islam

A lady wrote made this comment on Blogging Theology and Paul Williams responded:

“I left Islam because of two things: Our salvation is always regarded in terms of doubts.”

Did you not know that Muslims have a guarantee of salvation and promise from God about this?

Allah states:

Surah 9:72

Allah has promised to the believers -
men and women, – Gardens under which rivers flow to dwell therein forever, and beautiful mansions in Gardens of ‘Adn (Eden Paradise). But the greatest bliss is the Good Pleasure of Allah. That is the supreme success.

Allah also states:

Surah 3:9

Verily, Allah never breaks His Promise

Now if you ask the Muslim “are you going to paradise?” he is going to say to you “if Allah wills” (insha’allah). The well informed Muslim is not going to tell you “Yes I am going paradise for sure.” No, the Muslim hopes and prays that he will end up in paradise. It’s not because the Muslim is worried whether Allah will keep His promise, for as we have seen Allah does not break His promise. Rather, it is because the Muslim cannot be sure whether he would continue remaining on the straight path and die as a Muslim and the guarantee or promise of salvation is conditional in remaining and dying as a Muslim.
