Salam everyone!

I just want to let everyone know that something wonderful happened to me a few days ago, I said my Shahada and became a Muslim! Allahu Akbar!

I hope you wont mind if I tell you my story. I was a Christian, my father was a minister until his death 3 years ago. I found Christianity difficult really, not the faith side of things but I could never reconcile my beleifs in the way that my father did. I had far too many questions that he could never answer. In my teens I drew away from the church but I always felt as though God was there. I always felt as though I was searching for *something* but never knew what. When I started work I met a muslim girl who became a good friend. She was a lovely person who put me onto the path of Islam. She was a very pious person, but never judgemental, she sparked my interest in Islam and taught me many things. I lost touch with her a few years later sadly when she married and went to live in Pakistan.

My interest with Islam was put to one side really after that, though it was always there in the background. I married a Christian, very much like me, who felt disatisfied with the Church. We had 2 children and are very happy still. He is a good man. Then a couple of years ago, after my fathers death, I started to really think more about Islam and decided to find out more for myself. I think that when he was alive, I wouldnt have been able to do this. I visited websites, read an online Quran, eventually finding myself here! Over the months my interest grew and I could feel the pull of Islam even more. I started to visit a masjid and spent time with reverts and other muslims.

Then something very strange happened, one night in bed, a couple of weeks ago, I think I was asleep but I am not sure, it felt like I was awake. I became aware of a presence at my side then I heard a voice in my head as clear as anything. It said "you have listened to word of Allah!" then it said "Lets go". All of a sudden my chest was tight, and my heart was thumping and I KNEW!

My life changed after that and I knew what I had to do! A few days ago I became a muslim and it was one of the most emotional times of my life! My husband, to his credit, has taken it upon himself to learn about Islam. Inshallah he will revert too, though I want him to do it for himself and not for me. He is asking so many questions and is going to visit the masjid too.

I have so much learn and Inshallah I will try my best to be a good muslim! Life feels so good right now and for the first time in my entire life I feel that I have found what I was searching for!

Peace

Masha'Allaah, may Allaah keep us all steadfast upon the truth forever and raise us with the righteous slaves of Allaah on the day of resurrection.


May Allaah guide your husband, your children and all those who are sincere in their journey of seeking the truth. Ameen.

I am a muslim and I want some kind of illogical unexplainable thing to happen to me to. I am actually trying to review Islam and sometimes ,I wish instead of doing all this work which could also lead me to disbeleiving in Islam! Some kind of unexplainable defining moment happens to me to so that after that I never have a single piece of doubt instead and not keep worrying about the correctness of my position.

I think, looking back, its been a long time coming though inevitable really if you know what I mean. For so long I've been searching for something, I was never truly satisfied as a Christian. I've felt the pull of Islam for a long time now, but was never sure if I could take the plunge as it were, until a couple of weeks ago. I dont know if Allah (SWT) was talking personally to me, I dont presume that I would be that graced, but it seemed that way and then I knew what I had to do. I have been so happy since, at peace at last. My Shahada was one of the most emotional times of my life, I cried buckets! People around me have noticed that I seem more at peace with myself. I think my husband will revert, he is asking so many questions about Islam and has started going to the masjid and talking to brothers there. He is a Christian and beleives in Allah (SWT), but like I was, is so disillusioned with the church and society as a whole. Ishallah he will revert and then our lives will truly be blessed!

Peace CG
