As-Salaamu-Alaykum warahmatulluh. ❤️
I trust you are well.
I would like to share my revert story.
I reverted in Monday 13 May 2019.
I was raised as a Christian. My dad is a very strong Christian man. He made sure we learned the Bible by heart and live up to it. But it just never felt quite right. Learning the Bible gave me questions in live and not answers. I never felt like I’m praying for the right reasons. Feeling empty in my religion that time made me looking for something else.
One day I heard a Muslim man – that was my client at the time, for I am a Sales Representative – explaining Islam. Out of interest I started looking into it more. I started watching YouTude videos, I followed pages like yours and others to hear the stories of other Reverts. It was 5 months. And then – Ramadan came up. I was not sure if I’m will be fasting or not, because I didn’t revert yet. In our country Ramadan started on the 2nd of May. That morning, 4 o’clock I woke up, without an alarm. I just felt the need to pray so I started praying and then I knew that I need to fast. A week later I reverted.
My journey has still a lot of challenges. I don’t know a lot. But I’m starting to learn. I attend Taleem, even if I don’t understand everything my whole body gets shivers when the woman around me praise the Almighty.
My parents doesn’t know and with the right timing I will inform them. This is one of my biggest challenges. I’m afraid that I will loose them. But with Allah’s help I know I will get the strength and courage to handle every challenge on journey.
I’m so happy. I feel reborn. I’m a new person. ❤️
Reverting was the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me.
