It was to lead me to the truth

I took Shahada (declaration of faith) on January 28th, 2002 in UK.  I was a Christian girl who converted willingly to Islam and I am very happy and content.  It is hard to be a Muslim in a small Christian town, yet I believe Allah led me to this path for enlightenment to save me.  As I am a nurse I kept asking Him what does He want me to do?  I felt I should be doing something to help the people or the world.  He led me to Islam and I am happier now.  I still ask what can I do to be a better person and help?  I don't feel I am useful yet, I ask Him to show me what I can do to make the world better.

I am trying to learn the Fatiha in Arabic; I know almost all of it now. I keep learning the Islamic history, culture and traditions along with the beliefs in the Quran.  I pray for my friends and relatives who do not know the Quran and I pray for peace in the Middle East.

I pray in English except for the Fatiha, which I say.  I work night shift and sleep day shift so sometimes it's hard to pray at the times suggested.  May Allah forgive me if I am too late.  I do ask Him to forgive me and I am sincere in my prayers.  He has already blessed me in many ways so I must be grateful for what I have - eyes to see, ears to hear, legs to walk, arms to feel, and a mind to learn and enrich my life with.  When you are a nurse, you see the sick, the deformed, the ignorant, the addict, and the innocent children with terminal illnesses.  I think I have been very lucky to be what I am.  However, I feel I should do more with my skills.

I am reading the Quran page by page.  I will try to take each day and find one good deed to do in that day.  I am restless with energy; this religion gave me a sense of relief that I am beyond the stage of questioning religion and its importance.  I questioned the Bible and I wasn't too popular with my "disbeliefs".  Now I am "home" and I believe in Allah and that Muhammad (pbuh) is His servant and final messenger. I know now why I questioned Christianity - It was to lead me to the truth.  

Christians who have not read the Quran have no idea what Islam represents or what the teachings of Muhammad (pbuh) are. Unless we inform them, they will remain ignorant. In the Bible's original scripture, Jesus says there will be another messenger after him and asked us to follow him.  We know this messenger was Muhammad (pbuh), but the Christians conveniently omitted that part when they composed the new revision.  Back then they used religion for political purposes, to let people know the truth would have had Christians following Muhammad (pbuh) and converting to Islam, weakening the ties of the church over its subjects.  I know if Christians could read and take classes in Islam everywhere, we can increase their knowledge and many will come back to Islam.

I am thankful to Allah that I found the right, the true, and the only real religion.  May He guide me to guide others.

ZHARAH FROM BOTSWANA said:
Salaam my dear sister,
Thank you very much. Your article touched my innermost emotions. I too was a Christian until November 20th 2003. Allah trully guides us back to the Truth. I have come 'back home' as well. Reverting to Islam was a trully trully unimaginable experience for me.

I am a lecturer in my local university. I come from a big family and none of them disapprove but they won't trully understand when I tell them of the religion of the truth. They think I must have some problems even when I tell them of this wonderful and True religion! Please remember me and my family in your prayers.

I have been married for nearly fifteen years now and my husband is so upset and totally against Islam. I have tried to teach him about Islam and all I invite is vernomous attack on the religion and on me. I now read the Holy Quraan in secresy in my home and I am not at all allowed to go to the Mosque nor to tell our friends that I am a Muslim woman.

When I read your article, I cried, and cried for it reminded me of how lucky we are as Muslims! I am somehow managing to live through my everyday pain of oppression that I get from people who deny Islam in that they are actually trying to fight Allah and we sure know Who Created us and Who calls us back when He wants will surely triumph!

Pray for me my sister to grow in this wonderful religion and to one day be free to write and share my true story of my beautiful journey back to Islam. I can now do the opening prayer in Arabic and the Shahhada but other parts of the prayer I still mix Arabic and English. I felt so happy when I managed to recite in Arabic and from your article I know how you felt. I also read the Holy Quraan English and inshAllah will continue to read, and learn more about the most gracious words of Allah so wonderfully presevered.

Your story indeed helped me to get some of the emotions of pain and joy out of my weak body. Thank you and may the infinite mercies of Allah always be with you

Assalam u alaykum sister!

thank you so so so much for sharing your story, may Allah keep you happy and keep guiding you to the straight path. I look to all reverts as my role models, after Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him) for they gave up a whole life for the life of Islam, and for the way of Allah. I admire you! :)

Take Care, and Assalam u alaykum wa Rahmatullah! :)

CHRIS FROM USA said:
Hello,
I really do appreciate Islam although I am not a Muslim. I especially believe that Sufism is a way toward God.
As I understand it Islam incorporates politics. This is not to say that that is bad only that it is part of the practice. To say that Christianity has been used for political persuasion is absolutely true. I just wanted to note that it is not a unique situation and is somewhat more up-front in Islam

Aslama alaykum sister

You are lucker than me. May Allah increase you in knowledge.

Learning new thins one day at a time with willing heart is all you need to succeed in this life and accumulate yourself some provision for the next life. The real and the long lasting life.

Spread the knowledge.

NIZAAM HENDRICKS FROM SOUTH AFRICA said:
May Allah increase you in everything that contains goodness and prevent you from all evil. By Allah, you have chosen the way of life of His Prophet and may you receive all the blessings and truths that come with it. May Allah grant you all your hearts desires and my your life be filled with happiness.

I also find it very uplifting to read about people who have reverted to Islam. I was born Muslim and I live in a Western society myself. It is a real struggle to adhere to the finest teachings of Mugammad(pbuh) There are may temptations of the West. If I may give you some advice, you must visit Mecca and Madina sooner than later that is if you have not already done that. There you will experience the truth of Islam and celebrate life. Each moment that you spend in Mecca and Madina you will treasure in your heart and in your life for as long as you live. Once you have circumulated the Ka'ba you will feel clean and pure like you've never felt before. Realisations about life and your existence will reveal itself to you in ways that you may never have experienced before. In the same way that the full moon rises and stands majestic over the horizon, the Ka'ba will present itself to you with the same beauty and radiance of the full moon. In mecca and Madina your hearing and vision will be sharpened and your heart will pour forth emotions you do not know of now. If you visit the grave of the Holy Prophet in Madina, you will feel His Presence and you will see His truth and sincerity. You will see his traditions being practiced by the devout. Know that this kind of experience is between you and Allah and should be sought after for His sake only.

I hope that by Allah that my message may reach you and that you may accept it for Allah's sake.

Everything of the best Sister in your life.

May the peace and blessing of Allah be upon you.

LOYAL TO GOD FROM EARTH said:
In the Name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
THERE IS NO OTHER god SAVE GOD (2:163)
Assaalam Alakium
GOD willing, look at this website (www.submission.org).
I am going to just write some verses you can think about and may ALLAH (THE ONE AND ONLY GOD) guide us both on the straight path.
[17:36] You shall not accept any information, unless you verify it for yourself. I have given you the hearing, the eyesight, and the brain, and you are responsible for using them. [50:45] We are fully aware of everything they utter, while you have no power over them. Therefore, remind with this Quran, those who reverence My warnings.
[17:46] We place shields around their minds, to prevent them from understanding it, and deafness in their ears. And when you preach your Lord, using the Quran alone, they run away in aversion.
[72:18] The places of worship belong to GOD; do not call on anyone else beside GOD. [72:19] When GOD's servant advocated Him alone, almost all of them banded together to oppose him. [72:20] Say, "I worship only my Lord; I never set up any idols beside Him." [72:21] Say, "I possess no power to harm you, nor to guide you." [72:22] Say, "No one can protect me from GOD, nor can I find any other refuge beside Him. [47:19] You shall know that: "There is no other god beside GOD," and ask forgiveness of your sins and the sins of all believing men and women. GOD is fully aware of your decisions and your ultimate destiny. [63:1] When the hypocrites come to you they say, "We bear witness that you are the messenger of GOD." GOD knows that you are His messenger, and GOD bears witness that the hypocrites are liars. [2:130] Who would forsake the religion of Abraham, except one who fools his own soul? We have chosen him in this world, and in the Hereafter he will be with the righteous.
[38:29] This is a scripture that we sent down to you, that is sacred - perhaps they reflect on its verses. Those who possess intelligence will take heed.

LOYAL TO GOD FROM EARTH said:
In the Name of GOD, Most Gracious, Most Mrciful
THERE IS NO OTHER god SAVE GOD (2:163)
Assaalam Alaikum
(cont. about following sunna and hadiths)
[6:38] All the creatures on earth, and all the birds that fly with wings, are communities like you. We did not leave anything out of this book. To their Lord, all these creatures will be summoned. [6:51] And preach with this (Quran) to those who reverence the summoning before their Lord - they have none beside Him as a Lord and Master, nor an intercessor - that they may attain salvation. [5:44] We have sent down the Torah, containing guidance and light. Ruling in accordance with it were the Jewish prophets, as well as the rabbis and the priests, as dictated to them in GOD's scripture, and as witnessed by them. Therefore, do not reverence human beings; you shall reverence Me instead. And do not trade away My revelations for a cheap price. Those who do not rule in accordance with GOD's revelations are the disbelievers. [7:185] Have they not looked at the dominion of the heavens and the earth, and all the things GOD has created? Does it ever occur to them that the end of their life may be near? Which Hadith, beside this, do they believe in? [39:23] GOD has revealed herein the best Hadith; a book that is consistent, and points out both ways (to Heaven and Hell). The skins of those who reverence their Lord cringe therefrom, then their skins and their hearts soften up for GOD's message. Such is GOD's guidance; He bestows it upon whoever wills (to be guided). As for those sent astray by GOD, nothing can guide them.
GOD forbids us to follow anything other than the Quran, but each person has free will. [67:2] The One who created death and life for the purpose of distinguishing those among you who would do better. He is the Almighty, the Forgiving.
[2:269] He bestows wisdom upon whomever He chooses, and whoever attains wisdom, has attained a great bounty. Only those who possess intelligence will take heed.

JAMES FROM ENGLAND said:
I do agree with Scott that UK & USA are mostly pagan countries. Yet I find those countries more loving and more spiritual. There is no cloak of continuous fear. I recently visited Pakistan (a Islamic nation) and I was not allowed to take any religious book with me. Anyway these days I'm reading a lot on Theravada Buddhism, which I find more appealing and rational. Free from dogma and fear (especially from the so called god that is supposed to be benevolent and compasionate!)

SCOTT FROM UK said:
The other messenger Jesus spoke of was the Holy Spirit. As for the Christian girl turned Muslim: There are many millions of 'nominal' Christians brought up in a religous christianity who believe they are christians. But a Christian is someone born of the Spirit of God, who has a spiritual relationship with God. Western Christianty is a system far devoid of the reality of the New Testement.

I can find agreement with many Muslims in their dislike of 'western' decadence. I'm just very saddened that you see USA & UK as being 'Christian' countries coz they are clearly not - but are very pagan. Christianity was hijacked by the Roman Empire and has been a convienent mask since. How ever their are many who go aginst the tide.

ELIZABETH FROM USA said:
Alhamdulillah, and congratulations to a fellow convert who by the grace of God, has also found the truth of Islaam. It saddens me to see fundamentalist Christians like Sarkis (why he's lurking around IslamiCity I don't know either). I had to deal with their annoying, highly flawed arguments even in my old Catholic-girl days. The ironic tragedy of anti-Islamic Christian fundamentalism is that they proclaim Christ but MISS THE POINT of the Gospel message entirely. I think if ordinary Christians were to connect with loyalty to Christ and the message he was preaching, and if they examined (what remains in) the current canonical Gospels while comparing that message to the Qur'an, they would indeed fall down in prostration, recognizing the truth...(see Surah 5, verse 82?) And they would find that holding Christ in your heart would lead you to progress to the truth of Islam.... May your heart and mind grow as one who surrenders to God, sister. I can offer to you that the journey since accepting Islam and trying to live it has been a wonderful one, despite all its difficulties, and I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. May God keep us all on the straight path, insha'Allah.

MAJIDA AMAL (GLORI) FROM USA said:
To Sarkis:
I acknowledge Jesus as a prophet. He is not the son of God. Muhammad (pbuh) was given the words from God by an angel to clarify the mishandling of the Bible. The Bible had numerous passages deleted so the Christians could gain control of their subjects. The original Bible stated by Jesus (pbuh) there would be a messenger after him and to follow him. The Christians took the passage out. The old original Bible in the Vatican has this. Your book has been changed. Our Quran has the original text in Arabic for over 1400 years unchanged. We do not force religion of Islam. Islam is peace and there are those who mistakening distort it, but so do the Christians who want to kill those who don't believe, such as the Crusades. I know you believe in the same God as I. I pray Allah will enlighten you to the real truth. Please read we accept Christians and Jews from the book, they do not accept us. Where is the real humanity here. I wish you peace. I am not to judge you or hate you. Your god and mine will judge all of us. Peace Majida

SARKIS FROM AUSTRALIA said:
To hear you speak of your conversion is heart warming but I have to admit that I am extremely saddened that you had absolutely no idea of the Christian faith beforehand. I just need to say that the sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ was for the forgiveness of our sins. Our GOD gave us his only Son so that we turn to him for all. For anybody to turn against our Lord because thry have been moved on an earthly level is no excuse, even though you believe it is. You have been born with a level of grace in Christianity. You have rejected it and therefore the consequences that follow only you can control. Do your research properly and seek the right evenues to make sure you have chosen the right path. The difference between the Apostles Judas and Peter was that Judas did not turn to God for repentence but Peter did. You still have a chance to repent. You have just about denounced Jesus Christ the son of GOD. If you want information go to www.scotthahn.com and if you want to know about the contradictions of islam go to www.faithfreedom.org. Please dig deep and know the decisions you are making. Knoe that the plan GOD set up for the world is done in a way that was prophecised for centuries and has over 1800 witnessess documented authentically that there is no fault in it. Islam was the work of one man with no witnessess or prophecies 620 years after the crucifiction in a tiny remote town in Arabia whose word was spread by the sword. GOD is little smarter than that. Please please please learn more and study more and save your soul. Once you die you have no other chances. [part of comment deleted]PLease take care and GOD bless. Your brother in Christ.

MOHMED FROM UAE said:
Dear Sister,

You are just like a new born baby.Please pray for me.I am a patient.If this sickness is good for me May allah continue with and reward me in akhira and if cure is good for me May allah cure it.Allah will never reject the prayer of a new born baby.You must be very thankful to him as you are one of the few who came to know the truth and accpeted it. You will face a lot of problems when you practice the religion, whenever an issue comes there will be always a question in your mind that this is allowed or not.You have to be bold enough to reject if it is not allowed.This is your identity being a muslima.Allah always with you.

IMRAN FROM USA said:
To Esther:
I have read yours many comments on this Islamicity message board, and I always ignored you comments. Because the way you comments on various articles, it's sounds you are something innocents,insecure,ingnorent, and frustrated.
You should know that there are more than one billion Muslims all over the world. They have different cultures, traditions, customs, language, food and many many things. Only 12% do speaks Arabic.There is no such thing Islamic dress,food and name. Many non-Muslim who embraced Islam, they still carry their previous names and this is perfectly fine. There is no pre-condition that if a non-Muslim want to embrace Islam then he or she have to change his or her name.
Esther, you are using such a wonderful,Islamicity, web-site. It is better you should learn about Islam and try to enlighten yourself,so you could avoid childish comments. NO ONE is asking you to leave you religion. Your name,Esther, do not show at all that what religion you follow. Islam, is not a missionary religion and Muslims do not have any desire to convert people on any basis and through any means. Of course, Muslims do "invite"(DAWA) other people who are sincere, open-minded and want to LEARN about Islam. This 'Invitation'will continue and should continue. And it is up to other people to accecpt and reject the 'invitation'. "LET THERE BE NO COMPULSION IN RELIGION;TRUTH STANDS OUT CLEAR FROM ERROR"(The Quran 2:256)


P.S. Islamicity,please, post this,I have nothing against Esther.
Thank you.

This is glorigrabber, Majida speaking. I want to thank you for all your responses to my letter. I confess I used to be somewhat a sinner when I was younger. I was pretty and boys liked me. I smoked cigerettes, drank alcohol, dressed in jeans and tight tops. I could get men's attention but found out I didn't want it. I wanted to feel like I had someone to care and I needed faith to guide me. Allah saved me, showed me the good behavior and I felt so good inside, I had value and I could give to people and it felt good to give and not take. Slowly I became a modest person and worked myself two jobs and graduated nursing school. Alhumdulliah, I feel Allah saved me from ruin and now I must work to save others. Thank you Majida

MOHAMMED HABIB ADAM FROM USA said:
My Dear Sister in Islam,
Assalamu A'laikum. In deed Allah has shown you His guidance and He will bless you with the knowledge of His religion. I appreciate your effort in learning to read the Qur'an in Arabic and I encourage you to do that. My humble suggestion is that, you solicit the assistance of other Muslims to guide you in your learning, both in reading and meaning. Do not be discouraged because of your inability to offer your prayers at the priscribed times. To your information, you can practice the "combination of prayers" and still meet the requirement. Under certain circumstances, we are allowed to combine Zuhr and Asr prayers and offer them either at the end of Zuhr time or beginning of Asr. The same thing applies to Magrib and Isha. However, you should also consider saying some of your praters at the work side.
May Allah increase His guidance on you and pave the way for you to know Him more and more.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I too was a Christian until recently, when I was lead home. I am now Happy, learning, praying. I questioned and questioned. I had people rebuke me, saying things like "who are you to question the Word?" My answer then was the same as now; I am a free human, a child of the Almighty.
He answered me and brought me home. I now do my da'wah, living Islam. We lead by example.

SO CONGRATULATION YOU WILL HAVE DOUBLE OF OUR REWARDS THAT IF WE READ IN THE HOLY BOOK. GOD BLESS.

Yes, it is the questioning mind that is led to the Right Path by God Almighty. That, and a sincere desire to do the right thing always, and to want to live a meaningful, productive life. It is impossible to fake sincerity, honesty and piety. You have expressed them all--from the heart. All I can say to you now is: Welcome to Islam!

Most people seem to forget, that Jesus taught many things, in parables (Stories with duel meanings) and they cannot comprehend, that there could be other, underlying meanings, in the scriptures. The Bible I have, is pretty old and it mentioned in the history at the back, that Israel sacked Sumaria and destroyed the rival temple. Was that to fight a false religion, or hide a timeless truth? Were some of the Native American Tribes, refugees from the Middle East? You want to see someone's spiritual beliefs, rejected? Examine what the early American settlers, had to say. I guess some lesser god, must have created them. Now, their symbol, they called, "The Eye of God", is tread under foot, in our National Cathedral. The same symbol, that I believe, represents the device I tried to tell you about. Please understand, this is not my invention and it is older than many Americas and ten thousand years, into the future, it will still be, High-Tech. Maybe it will not derive water from the atmosphere, as I hope and maybe it will not answer my greater hopes, that bring mostly ridicule, but it must do something, pretty important, for many peoples, to have carried keys to, for countless centuries. Hosea said, "My people perish, for lack of knowledge" If you reject this knowledge, ask yourself, "Whos knowledge is it?" I don't even know what it is for, but it's the most promising thing I have seen, probably because I know that many have tried to keep it hidden. I leave you all, with the Love and Blessings of God.

My beloved Sister
May Allah be pleased with you ... there is one God and no one else but God. You know something, as a Nurse you are doing even more good to another than you can ever realized, in Islam, the greatest deed of goodness anyone can ever do is, kindness and goodness towards another human being. If you are unable to pray during working hours then pray when you have the time. I am so proud of you when you said you have almost learned the whole of Sura Fatiha ... May Allah keep us all on the straight path ... my Sister, never give up in the belief in the oneness of God ... Assalam-O-Alikum.
