After living 20 years as a born Catholic, I read in a comparative study between Islam and Christianity the following words:

 “We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah”;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not” Qur’an (Sura an-Nisa 4:157)

This was enough for me to embrace Islam in 1979. The reason being that if there was not crucifixion, there is not Christianity or Catholic Church. Afterwards I learned that God said:

The Religion with Allah is Islam Print E-mail
Allah said,

﴿إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الإِسْلَـمُ﴾

(Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.) Allah states that there is no religion accepted with Him from any person, except Islam. Islam includes obeying all of the Messengers until Muhammad who finalized their commission, thus closing all paths to Allah except through Muhammad . Therefore, after Allah sent Muhammad , whoever meets Allah following a path other than Muhammad’s, it will not be accepted of him. In another Ayah, Allah said,

﴿وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلَـمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ﴾

(And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him) ﴿3:85﴾.

In this Ayah ﴿3:19﴾, Allah said, asserting that the only religion accepted with Him is Islam,

﴿إِنَّ الدِّينَ عِندَ اللَّهِ الإِسْلَـمُ﴾

(Truly, the religion with Allah is Islam.)
