How I Became Religious From Nowhere

Recommended Posts

Assalamu alaikum,

 

I live in a country where Muslims are a minority. My family is not very orthodox. They never forced me to wear a hijab, offer five times prayers etc. Believe me, till March 2013 I used to be in western clothes but modest, I dint offer five times prayers, I prayed only magrib everyday, I dint read the Quran everyday it was only occasional and my hobbies were watching movies at home, though I dont go out with friends because I prefer being at home. In short I knew nothing about Islam.

 

One day I read about dawah and wanted to start with my Christian male friend but he got offended and he started talking worthy of Jesus. Though I was not much into my religion I always get angry when someone talks low about Islam. I started to argue, he argued back, as I knew nothing about Islam I started browsing more and more about Islam to defend myself. As I became stronger, he used to shout at me that Islam is fake etc, such arguments became frequent so I ended the debate without conclusion as to which religion is greater or worthy. I lost his friendship after that, he was my childhood friend and since then I dont like Christians, sorry if I am harsh.

 

I engrossed myself more in learning Islam, one day I saw a video of Dr Zakir Naik and since April 2013 I became very religious after understanding Islam, and I cry almost everyday to Allah in my prayers for missing out this beauty of Islam, for being so ignorant when I was young, but I also thank Him for giving me hidayath. my parents and brother are happy, friends are shocked at my change, my relatives are shocked. Parents said that Allah gives hidayath (a strong belief in religion) only to some, whom He wills.

 

 

I jumped in joy and I feel so happy that Allah chose me. I felt that connection, that special feeling when Allah chooses you. Imagine. I started wearing clothes like a Muslimah, offering five times prayers, reading Quran, and all that a Muslim has to do. Mashallah. Now I spend my free time completely in listening to religious lectures, dawah, spreading my knowledge to others, understanding more about Islam, trust me it has given me so much of peace and everyday I can't stop myself from learning more about Allah. I dont entertain arguments with anyone on Islam. I wish that Allah gives hidayath to all Muslims and help them enter Jannah. I love. Allah so much that I start to cry :-)

Walaikum assalaam wa rahmatullahi wa baraktuhu.

 

Reading your story, I felt so ashamed. I didn't cry when I knew the fact Allah chose for me Islam as a religion. In fact, a coward like me who cowers in front of her parents is hopeless and weak when it comes to following Islam. Even though, I do the basic Sunnat actions, I still feel disappointed with my progress. I'm pathetic and still involve myself in bullshit fantasies and all.

 

 

Anyway, congratulations. Masha Allah. I'm amazed at your strength. Masha Allah. Masha Allah.

 

As we get stronger in our religion, the shaitan gets desperate and tries to use a 'limit break' on us in order to deal a final blow so that we get damaged and no longer be able to follow our religion.

[at]Hydden  Thank you :) Regarding shaitan, I do agree he interferes as you start becoming more religious. But what I am surprised to note is earlier when I was not very religious, whenever I wanted to offer prayers, I would get distracted, whenever I wanted to read Quran I would think hmm.. should I read it today? But now, after becoming religious, the distraction and the procrastination or laziness of reading Quran has vanished. I know shaitan has walked away from me thinking I cannot do anymore tricks on this woman. As you said I have crossed the "limit break" and succeeded mashallah. :) 

and [at]Saracen  Thank you :)
