    Bismillah,

    Asalamu laykum brothers and sisters.

    I first became interested in Islam on september 11th the day the twin towers came down.
    I have never had any interest in religion although somewhere in my heart i beleived in God.
    After the twin towers came down i was hearing so much talk about Islam extremists, terrorist etc that i had to look into it.
    After i had spent sometime reading i couldnt believe that the people were talking about the same religion?? Islam was so peaceful not at all how it was being potrayed.
    From then on i have never looked back, i took my Shahada shortly after and i am 100% muslimah and proud of it!! Alhamdulilah!

    asalamu alaykum. this question doesn't really necessarily apply to me since i've been muslim all my life but i thought i just might still give an answer. i've been muslim ever since i was born. born from a muslim family and lived in a muslim community. even as born muslims we face hardships like our revert brothers and sisters. we get those nasty rude remarks, and those stares and we mocked day after day. but i got admit our new muslims have been through alot more than some of us born muslims. When i was younger i was taught to believe in Allah and all that but i never really cared about or even looked at why i should or shuldn't believe in Allah. my suggestion to all of you is that if you have children now or in the future make sure to teach them from the start why they are what they are.not just believing it. because otherwise they'll doubt their faith.

    Very true


    :salam2:
    Sister Maryam you are right.
    i am also a born muslim but i have been raised far from my religion:astag:
    i just hope i learn more about it now that all grown up which you know is very difficult because things are hard to change coz your all grown up and used to doing things.
    I am not saying we were doing unislamic stuff, just that we were not practising it well.

    May Allah strengthen our Emaan :tti_sister:

    Assalam-o-alikum. It is really great to learn about how our brothers and sisiters revert to Islam. It ,infact, refreshes my Imaan. One thing I have always noticed is that everybody who reverts to Islam was infact muslim in his or her ways in life.

    It is Allah (Subhanallah) who drives people to Islam. We should thank Allah for his mercy and Kindness on all of us.Ameen.

    Well Come to Islam, May Allah give all of you Ajar-e-Azeem.Ameen

    I bet u your stories are a lot more intesting then mine! lol

    well i was born.. and i was a Muslim! lol
    yea ok i was born into a Muslim family but i was never really religious until the 2nd war on Iraq started...
    i was born in the first invasion of Iraq but i never really thought much of it... but now.. its a lot more real to me...
    i realized there has to be more to life...
    i kinda went through a stage where i fully hated life and stuff... but then i got burnt... burnt my entire body (3rd degree burns, which is practically killing yourself, that why im known as a burns "survivor" not "victim)... anyways i was in hospital for ages and had a lot of surgery, had to learn to walk again, got fed out of a tube and all that stuff! and that really made me realize that well I DONT WANT TO DIE! not yet anyways...
    so i started really getting into the Quraan and also going to church and studying the bible trying to figure out what i can do to help even though im only little...
    when i went to church i had so many questions that even the leaders and really religious people couldnt answer.. but it was all answered in the Quraan... so i realized i have always been in the right religion, and that i only need to preach it properly.
    and it really helped me!

    so now im only 14 years old... a born Muslim.. and trying to do what i can for the world! :)

    God Bless!

    thats really great! u see the U.S government was trying to use that against us but it actually helped us!
    9/11... 911! emergency number! the only way americans would actually remember what happened! hey most dont even know they fought in Vietnam! but it helped them remember and study more about Islam... there are now over 20,000 converts to Islam in America.

    I already have a thread for this but since you asked, here it is!!

    By request here is my story...

    First I would like to say that, I was prejudice against Muslims. Not in its extreme, but I kept my distance...
    It was a long time coming... bit by bit...
    You know how a lot of people wonder if a revert did it for a man?
    Well I didn't
    BUT It was the heart and kindness of a Muslim man that I started yearning for more about this beautiful Islam.
    That was about a year ago. Since then once in a while I would read a little something here, ask a little question there....
    it wasn't until a few months ago, when I was so curious about the hijab (why are women wearing them, are they oppressed, because of the way media and propaganda portray Islam, I was very prejudice until I opened my eyes) and I learned how beautiful the hijab was. It touched my heart, and so I started looking into women's rights in Islam. What I learned was even more beautiful. It's unfortunate that you don't always see people treating women as they should. Anyway, I met a man from my work, who was muslim, and we spoke about it for a few hours. He said he would give my phone number to his wife and that she would call me. I didn't hear from her right away, but I went to a mosque anyways. To ask more questions. I knew the basics about Islam at that time, and spoke with the Imam for about 2 hours. At the end, I feel like he sort of pressured me into taking shahada. I kept saying I don't think I am ready, but he made me do it.
    I wasn't too displeased. I felt really good after taking it. BUT ... and there is a big BUT, This man and his wife, and this mosque and Imam were of a different sect. The whole time other Muslims were telling me what I was doing was wrong. I told them "Listen, Allah led me to Islam, He has guided me this far, I don't know if this is right or wrong, but ALLAH will guide me to the truth, because I seek it with an open heart. So after a couple of weeks I learned more about what this "sect" was teaching me, a sect that doesn't take all of the sunnah, a sect that curses some of the prophets wives, among other things. So you could imagine I was quite confused! Why would anyone curse the wife of the Prophet(PBUH) especially when we were told that they are the best women to follow by example?! So I went to another mosque, and told them what has been going on, and they gave me information, (the truth) about following sects, and that there should be no division in Islam. NOW I was really ready to take my Shahada!!! So I took it again, in front of witnesses, and I was still a little confused because of all this new knowledge I was gaining, but I knew in my heart it was right. SubhanAllah!!
    Since then it has been a great journey of gaining knowledge, and getting close with ALLAH SWT. Alhamdulilah.

    Since then it has been a bumpy road, in telling my prejudicial family, and on the other side the very religious christian family, but you know something?
    Allah has guided me every step of the way, and there were only a few times my heart felt heavy, and Allah swt took even that away.
    There is always more to a story than I could type in one sitting, but this is the gist of it. May Allah bless you in this life and the hereafter. Aameen.

    Hello Sabrina
    I was just wondering what you did to reassure yourself of any doubts you had about Islam along the way? Or did you not have any doubts?
    Thanks
