Why Did a PhD Theologian of Bible Embrace Islam?
I was looking for truth and nothing has ever felt so right for me.

I am in MEC mosque with Dr. Angel.

Q: What is your background and education?

A: I have my PhD in theology, masters in electronic engineering, and Associates in mental health.

Q: Mashallah you’re super qualified! What brought you here to the mosque?

A: I came to the mosque to revert back to Islam. And what attracts me in Islam is the truth in the Quran. I found many inconsistencies in the Bible, and too many people are worshiping Jesus as if he’s God, and no man can be put before God. It never made sense to me not to my heart.

I was looking for truth and nothing has ever felt so right for me.

Q: What in Islam attracted you, when you started to learn about Islam and read the Quran?

A: To be able to follow the actual Word of God which has been protected.

Allah says in the Quran in chapter 15:9 that it is Allah who has sent out this message and He is going to protect it.

Indeed, it is We who sent down the Qur’an and indeed, We will be its guardian.

Myself and a few sisters, we went over the basic fundamentals of Islam with sister Angel and today in front of all of us witnessing by Allah, she is going to embrace Islam by reciting the Shahadah:

I bear witness that there is no other God besides one God (Allah) and I bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the Messenger of Allah, and I bear witness that Jesus (peace be upon him) is also a Messenger of Allah.

This article is based on an interview held by Dr. Sabeel Ahmad with Dr. Angel.
