I like the stories of those who revert (convert) to Islam! I have read some interesting stories online; and, all this started out when I read about the first set of new Muslims who were companions of Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him). To my young mind, these stories taught a sense of adventure and courage. When I grew older, I kept learning about reverts: I had access to people in Canada; and, I had the net.
One of my best friends is a revert (convert) to Islam; she used to be a Christian. My second ex-fiance whom I couldn’t marry due to circumstances was also a revert (convert) to Islam; he used to be Atheist. Both of these individuals changed their belief system totally on their own and without any pressure—this explains a lot about my need to follow Islam. When I came across them, they were already Muslims. I have learned a lot of new things by interacting with them; and, I am thankful to Allah (God) that they played a role in improving and changing me.
I have even read about how some people are afraid of reverts (converts) because they feel that they are looking at people who are still not close to Allah (God) and Islam. I disagree with them because I have seen even Muslims do this. Through Islam, I have learned that there are different levels of faith; and, Allah (God) sees the reality clearly about one’s level of faith. Reality is that I learned this teaching afterwards; and, what made me close to reverts (converts) are the stories of Prophet Mohammad’s companions, which I read when I was a teenager.
Here are some interesting stories of those who chose religion of Islam to guide them in this world:
