I never knew a Muslim before this time, and I had certain preset ideas (all wrong I hasten to add) of what Islam was about. There was nothing in the behavior of the students that really impressed me...
I lived, researched, and taught in the Muslim Arab world for 35 years, and was very familiar with Islam in both theory and practice. What had been my journey to Islam and why had it taken so long?
I feel such a great peace and comfort –just like that childhood feeling again- and I know that I can sleep now; I know that I’m safe. Surely I know there’s a God, Who created the heavens and the earth and all that is between them.
Muslims believe that God (Allah) is the Lord of all people on earth. He is not just the God of the Muslims. Because of this, Muslims have a very great responsibility to act with justice and kindness to all those who have not yet come to the fullness of truth.
I can truly say now, looking back on the whole story, that I was overwhelmingly blessed by the way Allah guided me to Islam. I look back now and see my old friends from high school and how lost they are.
Free yourself, free your soul, free your body and mind from harm, and don't allow Satan to tempt your nafs, and you will find the ultimate freedom of all kind with Allah as your guard against his attacks.
Although Kara’s heart was filled with the morality of the Islamic belief, she still felt incomplete, so she went and searched for guidance.
Islam clearly identifies what is good or even required in life and what is bad or even prohibited in life. It sets clear boundaries that one should respect and maintain. But within those boundaries, Islam still gives you the freedom to be who you really are.
I wish more and more people in my country would go beyond biased mass media's view on Islam and start reading the Quran and understand the depth of this beautiful religion called Islam.
I want to be a good Muslim; I am sure that as long as I will be guided by God, I will lead a good and meaningful life. I lost my parents but gained a meaningful way of life. I am not afraid of anything, except God Almighty.
