    :salam2:

    While doing a search, I came upon this post. As a former Witness myself, I read this Muslimah's story with GREAT interest.

    All that she has said about the Witnesses, how they push, how they drill into your head verse and doctrine, how they shun all those who are "lead astray", school you in the ways of maneuvering through objections and how they are closed minded, how they themselves are sheep that blindly go where they are told......

    All true.

    My mother is currently a Witness, once disfellowshiped (a title reserved for those who have been baptized into the congregation-think of it as "Taking Shahada"), and has once again returned to that religion would have no personality if it were not for the Witnesses. She has been and will always be a cruel woman who used the bible's mandate of "spare the rod, spoil the child" literally. While I can say that I do not think that child abuse was condoned by the Witnesses, she used their teachings to reenforce her twisted thoughts.

    The Witnesses don't allow for individual personalities and everyone says and thinks the same way. While there are alot of kind people who are Witnesses, for the most part, to borrow Aapa's description, they are sheeple.

    I don't know if this sister is still around but if you are, please feel free to contact me.

    Maashallah, i was also a jehovah's witness i am unfortunately 14 and living with my parents so i cannot practice Islam 100%.Just like you, the jehovah's witness religion made me feel spiritually incomplete and the Bible never quite appealed me honestly but since i started reading Al Qur'an Al Karim i can see that the Holy Qur'an is the word of Allah(Subhanahu wa taala), i learn about Islam online at islamreligion.com and newmuslims.com and listen to and/or read Al Qur'an at quran.com wa alaikum salaam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

    Sister Muslimah4truth, this is a truly inspiring and delightful story. Allah has selected, appointed and honoured you as a strong servant of Islam, an emissary of goodness and redeemed you.

    Your life and experience first as a Witness and now as a Muslimah stand out as being a career representative of truth. The religious foundations on which earlier morality was based shows that Allah had preserved your chastity, assisted in retaining your modesty and allowed you to being a loyal slave and servant of Allah even before you knew Him by His True Attributes, Nature and Characteristics.

    May your story continue to awe-inspire others, both Muslims and Non Muslims and help them to discover the light of Islam for generations to come.

    May Allah also bless you and allow you to flourish as an Islamic believer (Mu'min) even more assertively and fruitfully than you did as a Witness and may He make you deserving of the highest grades of dignity as a Muslim and a resident of the Gardens of Eternal Grandeur.

    Since the topic was partially about the Jehovah Witnesses, I thought forum readers might be interested in the attached e-book written by a non member with no history or affiliation with them. The book itself is an exhaustive study compiled by an academic.

    As-salam alaykum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu sister!

    Amazing story, truly Allah guides whomever He will with His infinite Rahma! If you need anything feel free to ask, or if it's something more private you can also ask some sisters or ask in the sister section!
