Why should I convert to Islam? What does Islam have to offer for me? And how can you guarantee for me that I will be saved in the Life After through believing in Islam?
I think the full spiritual details of these questions are covered in my answer for Question #6. As for what does Islam have to offer for the individual, well all I can tell you is that the Arabic word "Islam" means submitting yourself in peace to Allah Almighty, your Creater. "Islam" is derived from the Arabic word "Salam" which means peace.
So Islam offers inner-peace to you. It offers direct relationship between you and Allah Almighty. See the above link and What is the Wisdom of Islam?
As for how can I guarantee for you to be saved through believing in Islam, I would simply answer: There is no guarantee in the sense of speaking on behalf of GOD Almighty!.
Just like in the religion Christianity as well. Read the following from Jesus peace be upon him: "Enter through narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
..... Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father (my GOD) who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord,' did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles? Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!' (Matthew 7:13-14, 7:21-23)"
Quick Note: The word "Lord" that was used for Jesus doesn't at all mean that he is GOD Almighty. Many people in the Bible were called "Lords" and "Sons of GOD" as well. We use the word "Lord" a lot for "Drug Lords" or "Market Lords", etc.... They are not GODs. These Lords are simply powerful people who have a lot of influence on us.
In the above quote of our beloved Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, the Message seems to suggest that most Christians will go to hell. Revelations 7:1-8 and Revelations 14:1,4 seem to support this theory too. Visit Almost every Christian is going to hell".
According to Islam, every Messenger of Allah Almighty will be used in the Day of Judgement in Allah Almighty's Judgment. When Allah Almighty Judges a Jew, He will Judge him on the Message that He sent to the Jews through Moses peace be upon him. Same with Christians through Jesus peace be upon him and so on for all nations. "To every people (was sent) an apostle: when their apostle comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged. (The Noble Quran, 10:47)" And also "One day We shall raise from all Peoples a witness against them, from amongst themselves: and We shall bring thee as a witness against these (thy people): and We have sent down to thee the Book explaining all things, a Guide, a Mercy, and Glad Tidings to Muslims. (The Noble Quran, 16:89)"
So according to Islam, every nation on earth had a Messenger of GOD sent to them. The North and South America's before they were discovered had Messengers from GOD sent to them. The Far Eastern Oriental and Indian countries had Messengers of GOD sent to them as well and so on... The Middle East was not the only region/nation that had Messengers from GOD sent to them as the Bible indirectly claims.
Allah Almighty ordered Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him to say: "Say: 'I have no power over any good or harm to myself except as God willeth. If I had knowledge of the unseen, I should have multiplied all good, and no evil should have touched me: I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings to those who have faith.' (The Noble Quran, 7:188)"
