Reverting back to Islam
The people in this world who actually follow Islam as their religion believe that each and every person is born as a Muslim in the sense that every child believes in and worships the one supreme power which is Almighty Allah.
Thus, when a person following another faith converts to Islam, they refer to as reverts instead of converts. Revert also means to take a step back and thus go back to one’s original faith.

- All previous evil deeds of non-believer will be demolished
Islam demolishes all the previous evil deeds and so do migration (for Allah’s sake) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah). (Sahih Muslim, Vol.1, Chapter 52, Page 18).
- After reverting back to Islam the reward of good deeds will be 10 to 70 times
Narrated Abu Sa‘îd Al-Khudri Allah’s Messenger said, “If a person embraces (converts to) Islam sincerely, then Allah shall forgive all his past sins, and after that starts the settlement of accounts: the reward of his good deeds will be ten times to seven hundred times for each good deed, and an evil deed will be recorded as it is unless Allah forgives it.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.1, Hadith No. 40A).
