I was borned and raised in ''Israel'' in Jerusalem/al Quds. My parents and relatives were all jewish and zionist so naturally i took after them and did not like arabs or muslims in general because i was taught to see them as terrorists and such things. For most of my life i had these feelings until i was about 23 years old. Around that time i met an arab girl who i started to talk to pretty much and become good friends with eventually. This woman was so proud and strong in her faith yet so very accepting and humbly in her attitude to other non muslims like i where at the time. This chocked me because i used to think that all arab muslim women were submissive and repressed and that they hated non muslims but she was totally different. I became interested in Islam by that so i started to ask her many questions about Islam and her beliefs and the answers she gave me only furhter increased my curiosity. By then i was on the path to conversion already and everyday i studied the Quran and everything about Islam trying to further increase my knowledge about the religion. After some months i made the choice. I firmly believed in Islam and thus saw no other option but to revert and i said the Shahada infront of some sisters including my good friend who had helped me to the right path. I then went to the Islamic Court to register myself as a muslim Subhan'Allah. After that i married a palestinian man and then we moved to the USA because of problems with my family and other things like him finding work. I now live in the USA, have 3 children and wear the Niqab since a year due to a personal choice of coming closer to Allah and increasing my iman. Masha'Allah i now live in accordance to the will of the creator and try to live as a good muslimah in everything i do in life.
