Life of a Reverted Muslim

"O believers enter into Islam completely and do not follow the footsteps of Shaitan, surely he is your clear-cut enemy. If you falter after receiving the clear-cut message, then keep in mind that Allah is Mighty, Wise. Are they waiting for Allah to come down to them in the shadow of clouds, along with the angels, and make His decision known? Ultimately all matters will be presented to Allah for decision"
(Surah Al-Baqara, Ayah 208-210)

Pamphlet That Change Everything.. Ex-Yakuza's Tattoist Become Imam..

A foreign Muslim brother was in Japan Shibuya's district doing his dakwah. He doesnt judge a book by it covers when doing dakwah on the street. He come across a fierce looking man that full of tattoos & he passed an Islamic pamphlet to this man. As people say - the rest are history.

Previously he walked proudly on the street with stylish hairstyle & short sleeves to show off his tattoos. Islam has changed him. Stylish hairstyle has long gone and now cover by serban. All his tattoos is still there but it has been cover by long sleeves jubah.

 Sheikh Abdullah Taqi Takazawa

His name is Sheikh Abdullah Taqi Takazawa. He was born into a typical Japanese family. He has been studying various religions prior to his reversion to Islam back in 2006.  He performed Hajj in Makkah al-Mukarramah at the invitation of the Saudi Arabian government in 2008 and further his study in Islamic studies after receiving scholarship. The man who started his path to Islam 12 years ago is Sheikh Niamatullah, appointed him to become the Imam at a small mosque in the Kabukicho area of Tokyo.

When he was asked how he become Muslim, Sheikh Abdullah Taqi replied;

“As I said, as I born I was already a Muslim. I am now 39 years old. For 35 years I was sleeping Muslim and then four years ago I woke up. I would like to ask you when you woke up in the morning what makes you woke up. I officially reverted back to Islam four years ago (2006). It is the gradual process; something happened, I became Muslim. Of course, four years ago, it is not somebody forces me to wake up; it is not that I did use my alarm clock. It was very nice waking.”

Yes. What Sheikh Abdullah Taqi Takazawa is true that all of us are Muslim and this was mentioned by Prophet Muhammad s.a.w;

"All child is born upon the state of fitrah (Muslim). It is the parents who made them a Majusi, Jews & Nasrani"
[Sahih Muslim]

How many of us who are still sleeping? When we should really wake up to convey the message of Islam or to study about Islam if we are still Not Yet Muslim? His story itself is a reminder for us to do our best and let Allah do the rest. Do not exclude anyone is our dakwah. Dakwah is the duty of every Muslim. Our job is just to share with them the truth and invite them to come back to Islam. Prophet Muhammad s.a.w can't give guidance to everyone he love although he wanted to because Allah is the one who guide;


"Indeed, [O Muhammad], you do not guide whom you like, but Allah guides whom He wills. And He is most knowing of the [rightly] guided."
[Al-Qasas 28:56]

This is the story of a pamphlet that cost few cent which change the life of a man - former Yakuza (Japanese) Tattoist. A small effort but huge rewards.... If you havent started to convey the message to other, it is not too late to start now.... If you still doesn't kow your Creator, get a copy of the Quran today.... Contact me at 017 - 647 9978 or via my Facebook Page for a free copy of Quran. InshaAllah... May Allah strengthen our Iman (faith) and guide all of us to His straight path.... Amin...

  3. I love you my daear brother foe the shake of Allah alone , It's Allah who guided you , ما شاء الله , جزاكم الله خيرً

  4. Assalamualykum wbt As Sheikh, this Glad Tiding for the entire world. We hope you can spread this news.


    Clearly the Hadith of Allah’s Messenger, the Holy Prophet Muhammad (upon whom be blessings and peace) mentioned the Truth will eventually emerge from the East. The lingering questions are: Who is the bearer of the Truth? Where will he come from? And when will this event occur?

    In line with the same Hadith, previous Islamic scholars of Holy Prophet’s (PBUH) descendants as well as the Sufis immigrated to the East, particularly to the Nusantara or Malay Archipelago region.

    Among the Scholars were:
    1. Shariff Tujuh (Radhiallahu 'anhu - Allah is pleased with him) to southern islands of the Philipines
    2. Sheikh Abdullah Al Arif (Radhiallahu 'anhu) to Acheh, Sumatra Island of Indonesia
    3. Wali Songo (Radhiallahu 'anhum - Allah is pleased with them) to Javanese Island of Indonesia
    4. Sheikh Ismail bin Sheikh Abdul Qadir (Radhiallahu 'anhu) to Besar Island, Malacca, Malaysia
    5. Habib Nuh (Radhiallahu 'anhu) to Singapore Island
    6. The Honourable As-Sheikh Tuan Haji Ghulam Hassan Ali Akbar Al Haj Al Ghaus Al Bikangi (Radhiallahu 'anhu) to North Borneo Island (Sabah), Malaysia.

    The aim of their journey and migration was to establish a foundation for the Truth that will draw mankind to return to their Lord by means of Tasawwuf. This was due to vast majority of Muslims in this era do not acquire the spiritual knowledge of their Creator, Allah The Almighty.

    The scholars and the Sufis also married local women with the hope their descendants or their disciples’ descendants will one day be chosen as The Bearer of the Truth.

    Evaluating the potential & reputation of Islamic Scholars, the bearer of Truth will emerge from Indonesian archipelago. However based on the recent ‘Aksi-212’ outcome, it clearly signifies the bearer of the Truth will not be coming from Indonesia. If so, would The Bearer of the Truth now come from southern islands of the Philippines, Besar Island, Singapore or North Borneo (Sabah) instead?

    Meanwhile, recent news on Malaysia has made it well-known and gaining worldwide attention. This shows the Bearer of the Truth will come from Malaysia. The question is who is this Bearer of the Truth?

    The incidents occurring previously in Lahad Datu and Semporna, Sabah have made these two districts famous all across Malaysia, signifying the Bearer of the Truth will emerge from North Borneo (Sabah) where the two districts are located. Clearly the Bearer of the Truth is The Honourable As-Sheikh Tuan Haji Ghulam Hassan Ali Akbar Al Haj Al Ghaus Al Bikangi (Radhiallahu 'anhu).

    During the Hajj pilgrimage in 1950, The Honourable As-Sheikh (Radhiallahu 'anhu) visited and met (yaqazah: meeting while awake) with the Holy Prophet (upon whom be blessings and peace) in Madinah Al Munawwarah. The Bearer of the Truth for this era was appointed to him by the Holy Prophet (upon whom be blessings and peace) where a copy of Holy Quran was given and said : “Invite mankind to return to their Lord using the Holy Quran as a guide!”

    Beyond doubt The Honourable As-Sheikh Tuan Haji Ghulam Hassan Ali Akbar Al Haj Al Ghaus Al Bikangi (Radhiallahu 'anhu) is the Bearer of the Truth in this 15th century Hijra. However based on the Hadith of Allah’s Messenger (PBUH), the Bearer must come from the East while The Honourable As-Sheikh (Radhiallahu 'anhu) came from Pakistan. What then are his role and responsibility as the Bearer of the Truth? They are to establish a foundation and creating a new system or ‘manhaj’ that will draw mankind to return to their Lord so that his disciples and his children in Lahad Datu will be able to continue his duty in this century and beyond.

    Therefore soon we will be witnessing the final match, moment of truth, between People of the Book and The Man from the East as planned.
