Salaams,

 

Er feel a little bit in the spotlight now lol but i will try to answer the best i can! Well, my life was just me me me and when I was 17 ,y brother died and everythin changed for me. Even tho i was a christian all my life i hadn't ever really stopped to think about a 'bigger picture'. Isn't that odd? I left home to go to university and found myself alone in a new city, i began drinking alot (i remember having half a bottle of vodka before getting out of bed in the morning and passing out b4 my foot hit the ground) and taking drugs (E and a biy of coke from time to time) to clear my brother from my mind and hated myself for being such a hyprocrite (i was part of a christian youth club that encouraged us to have dialogue with muslims and save them lol that seems really amusin to me now he he). i tried to commit suicide one day and was devastated when it didnt work and i woke up in a hospital instead of with my brother (strangely, thats where i thought id end up) then one day a friend at uni gave me a book by ahmed deedat and very slowly my mind began to clear a little. its ALL in the dawah - this person was soft, gentle, never judgemental or 'holier than thou' and i found myself going into uni just to find her and ask more questions!!! My priorities were heaven and hell (my brother was 8 and i wanted to know if muslims would tell me the same as christians had - that he 'might' be in hell - believe me, i knew some odd peeps - not all christians are as mad as the ones i knew he he), then womens positions in Islam and then comparitive religion. It all made sense to me, the pain cleared up a little and i didnt feel so alone. It wasnt just me anymore! I took shahada alone at a local Masjid and have walked around with a spring in my step ever since. lol hope that answered the q's, sorry if parts didnt make any sense!

It makes perfect sense dear sister and above all, it is a beautiful way to come to believe in Allah and His Beloved Messenger.

 

I pray Allah guides you along the path and allows comfort and tranquility to descend upon your heart.

why did you give up?

 

Well, i really dont see it as giving up. It was my new beginning and nothing has done more for me than Islam. With all the drugs and alcohol i was taking alone in my room i do think i wud b dead without it. I will always admired Christianity as the religion i was born into and and loved and i am still in touch with some of my christian friends who support my decision. So, you see, i really didn't give up at all :sl:

Assalaamalikum,

 

And who believe in the Revelation sent to thee, and sent before thy time, and (in their hearts) have the assurance of the Hereafter.

 

They are on (true) guidance, from their Lord, and it is these who will prosper.

 

Al-Qur'an, 002.004-005 (Al-Baqara [The Cow])

 

Welcome sister.

 

Wassalaam.

I don't believe this person was a Christian but is and was a Muslim making up stories. What country is this person from? what university did he or she go to?

Hi JinnMartini, How do you know what you are claiming. She says she is a converted Muslim, so we accept that she is. If she is not and just posing to be one and making up stories, then it's her problem, we do not need to speculate, we take things at face value.

 

It does not make any difference which country and what University she went to, and she is not obligated to share that info. with us. If you are interested, then maybe you should send her a PM. and discuss it with her.

 

Take care, umAhmad.
