This is one of the most beautiful feelings ever. Seeing people embrace Islam and get closer to their Lord is a blessing. Gervonta Davis accepts Islam wholeheartedly.
“When the victory of Allah has come and the conquest, And you see the people entering into the religion of Allah in multitudes, Then exalt [Him] with praise of your Lord and ask forgiveness of Him. Indeed, He is ever Accepting of repentance.” [Quran 110: 1-3]
Allahu Akbar. May Allah SWT forgive us our sins and shortcomings. We have a beautiful glad tiding for our Muslim brother Gervonta Davis and any person who is interested in embracing Islam. When you take your Shahadah, all your previous sins are forgiven. You are just like a newborn baby.
“Tell the disbelievers that if they desist, their past will be forgiven. But if they persist, then they have an example in those destroyed before them.” [Quran 8:38]
Alhamdulillah, Islam is growing, and many people are embracing Islam every day. We also just had another professional boxer Jarrell Miller embrace Islam in Saudi Arabia. life was hard for our Muslim brother Gervonta Davis when he was younger. But, Alhamdulillah, Allah SWT blessed him with a beautiful reward and guided him to the truth. We pray that Gervonta Davis grows in faith and becomes one of the ambassadors of the religion of Islam. We have many Muslim champions in different sports, and you can clearly see how Islam changes them and makes them better. Inshallah, this can inspire many others to follow in his footsteps and be encouraged to at least read the Quran. and learn about what true monotheism looks like. And to repent and come back to Islam the religion of truth and the only truth.
“Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam. And those who were given the Scripture did not differ except after knowledge had come to them – out of jealous animosity between themselves. And whoever disbelieves in the verses of Allah, then indeed, Allah is swift in [taking] account.” [Quran 3:19]
There is only one truth. And any religion that claims God Almighty is a human being, like Christianity, for example, can’t be from God Almighty. And The doctrine of the trinity is pure polytheism. So if you truly believe God is one and only one, then Islam is the religion for you.
“Say: ‘He is Allah, [who is] One.
Allah, the Eternal Refuge.
He neither begets nor is born.
Nor is there to Him any equivalent.“[Quran: 112:1-4]
Alhamdulillah for the blessing of Islam. We pray that Allah SWT guides all of us to the straight path. And Christians specifically come back to Islam, the religion of Jesus (as), and all the prophets of God. May Allah SWT protect our brother Gervonta Davis, bless him and his family, forgive him, and grant him success in this life and the next. I hope you benefited from this post.
