In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate

In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate
Al-Quran (30:30)

So direct your face toward the religion, inclining to truth. [Adhere to] the fitrah of Allah upon which He has created [all] people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah. That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.

فَأَقِمْ وَجْهَكَ لِلدِّينِ حَنِيفًا فِطْرَةَ اللَّهِ الَّتِي فَطَرَ النَّاسَ عَلَيْهَا لَا تَبْدِيلَ لِخَلْقِ اللَّهِ ذَلِكَ الدِّينُ الْقَيِّمُ وَلَكِنَّ أَكْثَرَ النَّاسِ لَا يَعْلَمُونَ
[Al-Imran 3:8] "[Who say], "Our Lord, let not our hearts deviate after You have guided us and grant us from Yourself mercy. Indeed, You are the Bestower."

The Greatness of Allah (swt): from a Christian to a muslim

As a former Christian, I don't think I knew just how great God was or the magnitude of what that meant then. As a Muslim, the more scientific knowledge I gain the more i am in awe of the greatness of Allah (swt)and only expel gasps of takbirs :) [35:28]. Indeed his creation are signs for those that ponder and the proof of his infinite greatness. I fear nothing and no one but Allah (swt) and I testify no one is worthy of worship but him [16:52, 2:164, 10:24].

One of the Many amazing things of the Quran is that brings the human back to earth (humbles them) and does so by emphasizing our human characteristics correlating it to our helplessness [17:37 "And do not walk upon the earth exultantly. Indeed, you will never tear the earth [apart], and you will never reach the mountains in height."].

The Quran also reiterates stories in the past in which populations of people have been destroyed because of their transgression. In doing so Allah (swt) is also warning us and reminding us who ultimately is Great [17:16-17]. So how can one whom cannot even command his body not to need nourishment, rest, defecate or command the skies without the permission of Allah (swt) be God or the son of God? How can one who is unable to help themselves be one’s Lord? [3:59, Matthew 4:1,8, Hebrews 4:15, James 1:13].

It is only when one truly UNDERSTANDS AND KNOWS how Great God is, prescribing partners or intermediaries to God is inconceivable.

We cannot ascribe divinity to Jesus because he performed miracles or was born by virgin birth. Every prophet(s) was able to perform miracles by the permission of God. Neither can we ascribe Jesus divinity based on an argument that was settled between the council of Nicea or according to Paul of Tarsus, a greek who proclaimed to be an apostle when he had never met Jesus and rejected God's Law and subsequently Jesus’ true message[Galatians 3:3. 2 Timothy:8].Jesus came in order to fulfill the same message of the prior prophets before him and to confirm the Torah [Matthew 5: 17-20, Quran 3:3, 2:87, 3:84] and until this day has been distorted and ignored by the “followers of Jesus.”

Why would God give his glory to another or change the message? It does not even make sense. While laws or different prescriptions maybe be different its always in accordance with time and what is best for us then (referring to the different laws although the same message). So Alhamdulilah I am muslim <3
