Assalaam walaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuhu. This will be a bit strange. I'll start the story from 4 years ago. It was July 2009. I had to get admitted into high school. After giving several entrance tests, I finally got admission into a Muslim school (which I didn't know then). I experienced the usual incidents of a typical transfer student. I was surprised to see so many Muslims in my class. It was also a surprise that most of the girls (with a few exceptions) weren't wearing the obligatory hijabs. After I adapted to the school's environment, I met a girl wearing a white hijab. We talked during the lunch break. She was asking me questions related to religion. "Why do you worship idols?" I was stunned. I think I felt a slow spark within myself (in the centre). I said, "Because our ancestors did so.". "How did they know and why?", she asked. Like this, she asked many questions. I was uneasy and told her to stop talking about religion. But she was persistent and irregularly filled me with small (but hugely true) facts on Islam. I was reluctant. This continued for one and a half year. Then it was time for the 2nd year final exams. We were given a fortnight for preparation. One day, during this time, I do not know why, but I suddenly (and childishly) thought in my mind, "I want God to be my friend." Perhaps it was out of loneliness. But then I continued, "But He wouldn't do so with a lowly creature like me." I'm not sure but I think after the next few hours, the Tsunami disaster in Japan took place. Looking at the water swallowing half of Japan, I was struck with great fear. I thought, "Is it because I asked Him to be my friend?" I researched on Noah's ark, then the End of the World rumours, and prophecies. I noticed that most of the Islamic prophecies were true, then Biblical ones, then Hindu ones. I was still struck with fear that this world would end quickly. I was unable to concentrate on my studies. "I didn't want to end up in Hell", I thought. Then I searched for information "to save myself" on the internet. Most of the results were Christian sites. I was almost following it but I felt in my heart that I should worship God, not Jesus. A few months later, I asked God silently in my mind, "Which religion should I choose?" Then the fact that I joined a Muslim school and the fact that the shaitan existed to harm humans made me realize that Islam was the true religion. "It was right in front of me. Why didn't I realize it sooner?" When I've revealed to her, the white hijabi girl was happy to know that I've accepted Islam. But I knew that this was beginning. Many problems began to arise. Who would have thought my life would become difficult?.... This is the story of my reversion. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ There's more. I'll share my problems in the next post. (P.S. Please forgive me for I've written this in a novel style. How insincere of me.)
