One Sunday in November last year, as always I attended church with my husband and kids in my hometown, Tulsa, Oklahoma. The good reverend talked about the Islamic threat to our country and the American way of life and the horrible treatment of women by Muslims and lack of family or moral values in their culture. We all cried Amen, and ate out that day. That same night I found out that my 15 year old daughter was pregnant, she did not know by who. On Monday evening a family fight broke out over this and ended with me discovering that my daughter was molested by my husband when she was 10. Tuesday evening I kicked my husband out.
 
On Wednesday another fight and now I find out from my daughter that my 19 year old son's girlfriend was pregnant by him 2 years ago and had an abortion. Wednesday evening my husband came back for his things accompanied by his new girlfriend-a creature I know from church.
 
Thursday morning I went to church seeking answers. Reverend was not in. Later found reverend at the post office, he said that may be I was being too harsh with my husband and family and we all make mistakes. Told me to look within myself for answers and repent for my sins?
 
Rest of Thursday and Friday morning I gave it deep thought. I had not been to work in a week. Drove to my mother's in Oklahoma City. Sitting in her backyard smoking my 100th cigarette, I saw a Muslim family playing in their backyard. The husband was being chased by kids while the wife looked on happily. The Moslem lady turned to me and smiled. I did not smile back. I thought they hated me.
 
Drank and smoked Friday night. Sick all Saturday. Saw Moslem Nighbor's wife again that day hanging up her laundry, she smiled again. We became friends.
 
One week later on a Friday I accepted Islam. I can see why we were being told to stay away from Muslims and Islam - we ran the risk of discovering the truth and peace like I have never known before. What is missing in our lives ? This very thing called Islam.

Deb.

Semar, as-salamu alaykum,

I haven't been able to figure out whether this is your own story or you quoted it from somebody else. Could you please clarify that?

Note: I have got a new user name as "Mustafaa" but I am your old friend who lately used the identity "Mustafa - Mathsson". Don't think I am a stranger!
