Reverted To The Truth
Posted 22 May 2011 - 07:50 PM
My path to Islam began some years ago, when one university professor asked us, in my studies of philosophy previous to christian theology, to read another religion's holy book and I chose, due to 9/11, the Qur'an. The more I delved inside it the more I said to myself 'This is the Truth from my Lord', I almost cried with happines when I read the CORRECT history of the previous prophets and the RATIONAL system of ethics and law and much more. I inmediatly gave up my decision to study catholic theology and centered in my studies of philosophy. I went to the Masjid and began praying and doing the rest of the rites and pillars, but there was at the time a lot of family pressure not to continue and I let them influence me and continued reading but figuring myself I was just investigating a foreign religion without compromise and this situation continued till last month I said to myself 'Enough is enough, the moment you'll present to your Lord what would you say Him? That your family does not allow you to believe in HIM?' So I have taken the step towards the faith and approached some muslims in the Masjid. The problem is those muslims were Shi'a and I have been reading, I think, the WRONG Risalah and Islamic beliefs books for almost a month. I started then to read Ibn Kathirs tafseer out of curiosity online and the more I read it the more I found again that rational Islam I loved so much since the beginning, so I want to say in fron you all 'Ashadu La Ilaha Ilallah wa Muhammadan Rasulallah' from Spain.
