Hated islam, now he is muslim

Assalamu alaykum,
This is brother Patrick Amman, who was an enemy of Islam for years. He was in the Army, he had Far-Right involvement and was connected with anti-Islamic nationalists all over Europe and North America. Now Alhamdulillah he is Muslim and his two favourite Sahabis are Umar ibn al-Khattab radiAllahu Anhu and Khalid bin Walid radiAllahu Anhu, both of whom were enemies of Islam before they saw the Truth.

He converted a year ago. He said he felt a sudden urge out of nowhere to study Islam in an honest way. So he picked up two translations of the Qur’an and started watching Islamic YouTube channels. Each day he studied; lies he had believed were shattered, and as he became increasingly pro-Islam, his nationalist friends started to oppose him. But this only made him more firm, until he finally made up his mind that Islam was the Truth and he could no longer deny it or find any flaws.

So he finally decided to go to the Mosque and take his Shahada. That random urge to study Islam was Allah’s guidance, no doubt. All the information was written by this brother. Alhamdulillah, Allah is best Planner.

#Islam, #Peace

10 years of being Muslim

Brother Mostafa Higazi
#10YearTransformation I share this in hope to inspire others who may feel spiritually at loss. I do not shy from admitting that I was not always a practicing Muslim. I DID have a spiritual struggle growing up and experienced personal hardships.

At the same time, I was always introspective and passionate about the Deen, which eventually led me to accepting and implementing it wholeheartedly to the best of my ability.

So what was my secret? Well, it was no complex formula for my transformation. What worked for me is BEING. Be and you become. The important thing is to WANT change for yourself, and seek your Creator’s guidance towards that necessary change. Transform yourself into a humble servant of the One who created you. In doing so, you may lose out on some finite worldly gains, but in return will be led to a straight path towards eternal infinite bliss.

#ISLAM (submission to the one true God) is the essential metaphysical paradigm that our soul needs. Without it, our hearts and minds remain in a state of distress and confusion. Hence, it is only thru Islam that one may acquire ultimate contentment. It is for this reason, that I have devoted my time and energy to conveying the message of Islam to the general population – out of compassion and care of sharing that blessing (Islam) with humanity.

May Allah make us all of the righteous, keep us guided on the straight path, and enable us to remain steadfast in good actions and deeds. Ameen

Former Marine Mark Who Served in Iraq

Former Marine Who Served in Iraq and Accepted Islam

Brother Mark recently came into Islam less than a year ago. He was in the Marine Corps and spent time in Iraq. Part of what led him to the religion of Islam was during his stay in Iraq when directly dealing with Muslims who he considered of utmost manners and hospitality.
Spiritually speaking, Br. Mark studied to become ordained in the Roman Catholic church for over a decade but had difficulties surrounding the religious veneration of sacred objects and ritual practices, especially praying to the saints instead of God! Curiosity led him to studying Islam more and reading the Qur’an. The turning point for him was when he realized that ALL the Prophets of God including Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad (peace be upon them all) came with the same message of Islamic monotheism.

Hindu Who Demolished Babri Masjid in india, Converts To Islam

Hindu Who Demolished Babri Masjid in india, Converts To Islam

Babri Masjid was situated in Ayodhya, India which was ordered to be demolished, and this person who took part in destroying that mosque, end up converting to Islam.
Ever since his transformation, Mohammad Amir, previously called Balbir Singh, has constructed more than 90 mosques as a means of apologizing for his sin.

Moreover, Amir also gives facilities as a Islamic preacher.

The excursion of Amir, from an ex-kar sevak, who united with thousand others coming from across India to thrash the Babri Masjid to a devoted Muslim, is an inspirational one.

In an talk with India Today, Amir discovered how he was the first person to climb the mid dome of Babri Mosque.

Once a loyal saffron association warrior, Mohammad Amir, told, “I was so expended with remorse soon after the destruction of that mosque and that’s the time when I decided to accept Islam.”

Muhammad Amir is also wedded to a Muslim lady and runs a school in India to spread the wisdoms of Islam.

Trump’s Election Led Me to Islam

☺️ ☺️ My Journey to Islam

Trump’s Election Led Me to Islam By Michael CummingsTrump’s Election Led Me to Islam
Everything I learned about Islam just made sense to me.

My name is Michael Cummings,
but am changing my name too #Ubaidah. This is my story of reverting/converting to Islam.

Well I was raised Baptist in rural Kentucky. But I’ve always been different from my family, especially when it comes to wanting to learn about other cultures. Both of my brothers joined the military and have since both moved on to other career fields after serving in Iraq.

Well one of them is now homeland security and in college to be a Christian preacher. But I had strayed away from Christianity after I started to question the Bible and couldn’t get answers from any preachers, so I started to seek the truth of religion.

I looked into everything from Mormon to Rastafarian, but during the election of trump and all the hatred that came with it, it peaked my interest to find out what Muslims actually believe because all I really knew was what you see on TV and movies.

So I proceeded to research and to ask Muslims what they believe and I ordered a Quran and just started to read.

Everything I learned about Islam just made sense to me. So I decided to tell my mom I was converting to Islam, she was not happy (still isn’t). Then she decided to take it upon her self to call my homeland security/preacher brother and tell him.

So that obviously didn’t go over well. Pretty much everybody I’ve known my whole life see me as an enemy now, but by losing a few family members I gained about 1.7 billion new brothers and sisters.

I am also giving dawah to all my friends and have a few that are very close to accepting Islam Insha’Allah.

I just pray that Allah continues to guide me and my friends and maybe even my family one day.

Allah Akbar.

Japanese brother revert journey to Islam

My name is Kyoichiro Sugimoto, Japanese Muslim Revert. I am originally from Seki, Gifu, a city famous for its production of traditional Samurai sword for the last 800 years. I am now living in Chiba, a residential suburb in the metropolitan Tokyo area. My journey to Islam has started from my first visit to Bangladesh in 1996.

Allah brought me to Islam through heartwarming kindness of the local Bengali people while the country has too many poor people. I realized this positive attitude should be stemmed from the teaching of Islam for they are Muslims. After reading the Japanese translation of the Qur’an in a few days, I was impressed by the clear concept of God and the life after death. “And do not invoke with Allah another deity. There is no deity except Him. Every thing will be destroyed except His Face. His is the judgement, and to Him, all of you will be returned,” the Qur’an 28:88 says, rejecting or ignoring God, Ultimate End and the next life seemed to be my major problem. I responded to my inner voice and accepted Islam in 1997. Now I am collaborating with iERA as the International Outreach Specialist for Japan. For the sake of Allah swt, I have 3 main activities: – Conveying the message of Islam to non-Muslims by opening up Fitrah or human primordial nature through heart-warming human relationships, motivational talks and education. – Empowering both New Muslims and Young Muslims through education and training so that they can continue and expand the Prophetic Mission in and out of Japan. – Promoting multicultural community cohesion between Muslims and non-Muslims in Japan through local events, campaigns and networking. Would you like a share in Kyochiro’s Dawah in Japan? Imagine all the non-muslims he will speak to about Islam Support the Dawah => donate.iera.org The Prophet (saw) said ‘’…the most beloved deed to Allah is the most regular and constant even though it were little.” Do the most beloved deed => donate.iera.org Your money will not only support the Dawah in Japan but across the world in South America, Europe, Asia and more!

Jewish Revert story; Daniel Marsden

My name is Daniel, I was born in the Orthodox Jewish community and I came to accept Islam when I was studying the Torah. I spent three long days in tears, fearful but then when I prayed for an answer this beautiful faith came swinging. In respect to the Rabbi who later accepted Islam and became the first man to be promised Jannah whilst he was alive, I have the Islamic name of Daniyal Ibn Salam. My love for the Ummah grows more and more, I’m speaking to several about marriage so keep me in your most humble Du’as.

How Islam freed my soul? – Cat stevens

Islam Changed My Life for the Best

As I moved forward in my search, don’t think for one moment that I was waking up every morning and say “Now who am I going to meet and find today?”

… No. But the world is a place, and it was a place then, particularly then, where people would grab me every now and again and try to pull me back into the world and just let the desires explode. So “Come here, have this drink, have this, have that, it’s great”. You don’t need all that rubbish.

An Irish Republican and staunch Atheist of thirty years accepts Islam

11891093_874683099247318_6755905792470370349_n

The purpose of writing this is to record my epic journey into Islam and to hopefully enable others to understand that journey. For people who know me will know that this was not an easy straight path ,there were many twists and turns along the way. My new Islamic life began on the 12th of Rabee Al Awal 1436 AH(AKA 3rd of January 2015).
But where did I come from to get to where I am now?Both my parents were devout Roman Catholics,so my early formative years were spent as a Roman catholic,however,by the time I’ve reached the age of fifteen,I became an Agnostic and later I became an Atheist.
I remained a staunch Atheist for over thirty years so how did I go from being in the darkness of atheism to the light of Islam?

Takbeer, Allahu Akbar Brother Frank Consolino Embraced Islam

922872_130158950521486_1499350603_n

Takbeer, Allahu Akbar Brother Frank Consolino Took His Shahadah and Embraced Islam

he says about his revert:

I was born into a Catholic home and raised that way. At the age of 16 I left the Catholic church for good, at age 20 I started attending a non denomination church that went wrong when the pastor had a affair I found another church attended for a year and found it to be very judgemental and run like a business instead of for God. In the small amount of time I have practiced Islam I have found a joy and understanding that I have never experienced before. Thanks be to Allah for excepting me as I am. Allahu Akbar.

He has been former Michigan State Mayor Candidate.

He has posted on his facebook page about islam, his cover photo “I am Muslim”.

and

He has commendted on one of his posts regarding the Quranic Verse which Allah swt says:

“Indeed Allah Never Breaks his Promise.”

after lots of negative comments from his relatives and friends about this Quranic Verse he Replied:

Frank Consolino Did not post this for debate but just for myself I believe in this but still respect christian beliefs but that is just not for me. Im sorry my family is practicing Christianity still and respect that completely the only thing I ask in return is for the same respect. I will not debate religion or politics because I believe it is not proper to infringe on others thoughts of beliefs. I value all of you the same as I always have and i hope you would reflect the same.
and,
Hawkes I don’t think any of that! about Muslims!! Just curious why you declared yourself Muslim. Nothing wrong with it, just thought you were a Lifer.

  • Frank Consolino I started researching Islam just for further education on other religions and through that my eyes where opened and my heart was turned to Islam I have found so much peace in Allah (God) and Salah (5 time daily prayer) it is overwhelming. Julie and the children are still christian. In Islam it speaks nothing against a Muslim visiting a christian church so I plan on attending with my family as well.
AND Allah swt the creator of this whole universe says, in the noble Quran:

Allahu Akbar, brother Daniel Took his shahadah

Welcome our brother Daniel (a 45 year old) to our beautiful religion. About 1 year ago this man Daniel came up to me and my wife and sold us some perfume in the parking lot. I proceeded to start the Dawah conversation and gave him a copy of the Quran, Biography of Muhammad (saw) and some other books to do some research. He had lost his phone so we lost track of each other. Today we went to the store and met Daniel again and he decided that what he had read about Allah and Muhammad (saw) was the truth and accepted Islam. Allahu Akbar. May Allah accept it from him and us and keep him on the path of truth. He has a special request that I will upload later today, insha Allah.

A Roman Catholic US Marine Discovers Islam

“The Words of Shahadah Fit with My Beliefs.”
By Frank Estrada

What finally brought me to my conversion though was the Shahadah.

My name is Frank Estrada. I was raised a Roman Catholic.

I was so devout, I even had hoped to one day serve in the priesthood.

I accepted the churches’ teachings even when I didn’t agree with them. I even took every chance I got to convert people in the hopes of bringing them to God.

While serving in the US Marines, I did two tours in the Middle East. In a short time, I developed a hatred for Arabs and Islam.

After I left active duty, I took a job with a company as a network administrator in Iraq. I worked with a man named Ahmed. In the beginning I didn’t trust him simply because of his background. I’m lucky that he was patient with me.

Slowly, due to my ignorance, he taught me about the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and the Quran. He didn’t teach me with words. He showed me that Muslims are not evil by his actions. More than that, he taught me the truth of Allah’s message.

After I came home, I began to study Islam in earnest. I took a world religions course at Mesa Community College. Though I found the course prejudicial to Islam, it seemed to push me closer to it.

I met a young woman named Amal in the class. We would spend hours talking and debating Islam against Catholicism. I found her arguments both logical and reasonable.

I started taking Arabic courses, so I could learn to read and understand the Quran properly. I still have a long way to go.

I spoke to everyone I knew that was Muslim but, more than that, I watched them to see if their actions matched their words. I never saw any hypocrisy. I even went to the masjid in Tempe, Arizona, to talk to other Muslims and the imam.

What finally brought me to my conversion though, was the Shahadah. I read it and tried to see how it fit with my beliefs. I compared it to the first commandment and found them doubles of each other. It was at that point that I had an epiphany.

Catholicism, whatever else it was, was polytheistic. The realization was shattering to me. I knew at that point that I could not obey the laws of Allah and continue to praise Prophet Jesus (peace be upon him) as His son.

I talked it over with my wife. She was concerned, to say the least. We spent hours discussing what it would do to our family. She went with me to the masjid where we spoke with a man named Muhammed. Not only was he able to sway her fears, she decided to convert as well.

Becoming Muslim was no doubt the right decision. My friends and family, save my parents, were very supportive. My father would not speak to me for the next three months. My wife’s family, to this day is still unsupportive. I have no doubt that Allah will soften their hearts in the future.

I thank Allah for all the people He has brought into my life to show me the truth. I thank Him for giving me a mind to understand the truth. More than that, I thank Allah for my loving and understanding wife who has come to the truth with me.

I shall end this paper as I began the day. There is no deity worthy of worship but Allah, and Muhammad is His Prophet.

An Inspiring Story How Brother Ismail Entered Islam (May Allah bless him)

An Inspiring Story How Brother Ismail Entered Islam (May Allah bless him)

Assalamualaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh.

My name is Ismail. I am Romanian and Hungarian and I live in California. I became a Muslim almost 5 years ago at the age of 17. For me it all started while playing basketball, where I met someone who is still one of my best friends to this day. He gave me dawah and we argued about religion back and forth for about 4 years. I was a Christian and he was a Muslim. He asked me questions I didn’t really have answers to, eventually all these questions started turning into doubts about Christianity. I always had a respect for Islam since I met him, and I actually thought it was very cool to see the Muslims take a break from playing and pray salah. Eventually I prayed and asked God, “If Christianity is the right religion, make all my friends Christian, if Islam is the right religion, then make me a Muslim.” About a week later I took my shahada at the very basketball court where it all started Alhamdulillah it was the best decision I ever made in my life.

After I had taken my shahada, I had kept it a secret from my family. My family came to America in 1989 from Romania. During that time period Romania had been a communist country and my family being Pentecostal and the majority being orthodox, they were persecuted and went through a lot of hardship practising their religion. So the nature of my family was very tough and stubborn from the start and I knew that if I told them I became a Muslim, they would be very hard on me. So I kept it hidden for a couple of months and there were a lot of close calls where they almost found out. I first started to refrain from eating pork, which is what about 80% of Romanian dishes are made with. When my mom asked me why, I showed her in the Bible where it says we shouldn’t eat pork and she said okay that isn’t needed but go ahead. I also asked my mom if it’s okay to pray by prostrating and she had told me she had seen my grandmother pray this way so it’s okay.

From the beginning I prayed all of my prayers but out of fear of being seen, I would pray Fajr-Isha at night time when everyone was asleep so I wouldn’t be caught. I kept it up hiding it from my family until I felt I was strong enough to handle what was coming when they eventually found out. One day I got into an argument with my cousin on Facebook in which I was defending Muslims. After going back and forth for a few hours he eventually asked me sarcastically “Wait, you’re a Muslim right?” At that point I decided I could not lie and say I wasn’t but instead be firm in the truth and Allah will take care of me, so I told him “Yes I am”. After that my whole family found out and at first they didn’t want to believe it. Before Islam, I was the most favoured in the family. I was the favourite nephew, the favourite grandson, the favourite cousin etc. After Islam, I became the most disliked in the whole family. My grandma told me I’m not her grandson anymore, my cousins called me a devil worshipper, my aunts and uncles sent me hundreds of pages of their research and talked to me for hours on end trying to change my mind. They said the most hateful things you can think of about Islam and about my beloved Muhammad ﷺ that many nights I could not sleep because out of sadness I was crying so much. Before Islam family was everything to me I sacrificed a lot for them so for them to say these things to me really hurt me and affected me. I understand why they did it however, because they loved me and wanted the best for me. I could only imagine if my child were to change religions, it would be a very difficult thing to deal with so I don’t blame them, that was Allah’s test for me.

After that my mom placed restrictions on me, I was no longer allowed to go outside with my Muslim friends and be with them, I was only allowed at the basketball court and home, that’s it. I had surveillance on me at all times, so during these times I would pray at very late times around 2am. It went on like this for a few weeks; all the while I was still being forced to go to church with them. My mom got fed up after she saw I wasn’t changing and I was actually getting stronger in deen. So one night she told me “either you leave Islam and you can continue to live here or you can leave the house. The choice is yours, but you can not be a Muslim and continue to live here.” I said “Okay you’ve made the decision easy for me I will never leave Islam.” So this is how I was forced to leave the house.

When I left the house, immediately a Somali family took me in and I stayed with them. May Allah bless them, I will forever be indebted to them because they helped me in my time of need, and they became my family for me. Every night my mom was calling me and she would tell me how much she missed me and I should come back. But I would always tell her I would never leave this beautiful religion. My mother was stuck in a situation where she was getting pressured by my family to kick me out they were telling her that I would for sure leave Islam if I were to be kicked out of the house. So this was the reason otherwise she wouldn’t have done such a thing. All of her life she lived for her kids and we were her number one priority. She worked 2-3 jobs while going to school full time in order to provide for us because my father was not involved in our lives they had divorced when I was 3. Over time as my mom saw that I would not budge she told me “please come back” and I said I won’t leave Islam so let’s come to an agreement.” So she agreed and the deal became that I would go with them to church every Sunday and I was not allowed to pray in the house, and I could in turn live at home and she would cook halal for me. There were a couple of times after that where I had been praying outside and funny things had happened to me. Once I was praying Isha and in the 4th rakat, a sprinkler had gone off right onto me! Another time it was Fajr and my next-door neighbour saw me in sujood and thought I was unconscious so she rushed to call an ambulance. Thank God I had finished before she started to call to tell her I was just praying.

So ever since I came back home Alhamdulillah the situation has been gradually improving. Before I was not allowed to even have a small booklet or kufi in the house, now I have a whole closet full of different cultural clothes and a couple bookshelves with books in them. At the end of the day I love my mother with all my heart and Islam taught me how to be a better son to her and how to be a better brother to my sister and brother. May Allah guide them to Islam so they too can feel the peace and tranquillity of this beautiful deen.

Canadian Biology Student Reverts to Islam.

Steven Byers, a fourth-year science student, has been learning a lot lately.

But his latest studies are not limited to just physics and biology.

Byers is learning about Islam; a religion he’s recently embraced.

About five years ago, Byers couldn’t have pinpointed what belief system he followed.

He was raised a Christian, but Byers remembers feeling let down by his faith when bad things happened in his life.

“I would always question like why would God do that to me, my family, or my friends? It just didn’t make sense to me. And then I would get pretty angry. It was like the only time in my life I was really angry with a lot of stuff.”
Now Byers is feeling more settled.

CAIRO – Germany’s young footballer Danny Blum has announced his reversion to Islam, describing it as a religion of hope and strength.

“Islam gives me hope and strength. Pray calms my soul,” Blum told Bild newspaper on Monday, January 26.

“I was short-tempered, erratic and did not know where I belong,” he added.

Blum joined 1. FC Nürnberg in Bavaria last July. The team plays in the he Second Division of professional football in Germany, the Bundesliga.

Shortly after joining the team, he injured his knee and was forced eventually to take six months off.

A few weeks ago, he took the decision to revert to Islam, joining the world’s fastest growing religion.

“Living in the lap of luxury. Every weekend make alarm. No responsibility for anything. And what actually comes after retirement?” the questions came to Blum as he sat at home.
Talking with his friends about religion, he landed in Islam.

“I have visited a mosque and I immediately risen the heart. I felt this is something for me and wanted to know more,” Blum told Bild.

Ever since, he prays five times a day and eat halal food. Informing his parents with his decision, the 24-year-old player said they were scare at first.

“They are devout Christians. But soon they said that I have to go that route if I believe that it is right,” he said.

“Islam is a peaceful religion. My faith says: never force anyone to do what he does not want. If you think, it has to come voluntarily from the heart!”

Germany is believed to be home to nearly 4 million Muslims, including 220,000 in Berlin alone. Turks make up an estimated two thirds of the Muslim minority.

FrontNationalParty

Maxence Buttey says there are a lot of similarities between Islam and the Front National

A local councillor representing Marine Le Pen’s far-right party, the Front National, has announced he has converted to Islam – and has urged fellow party members to do the same.

Maxence Buttey, 22, has been suspended from a regional Front National committee after he went public with his decision and sent out a “proselytising video” to the party in which he praised the “visionary virtues of the Koran and urged them to convert, the Telegraph reported.

Mr Buttey, who is a councillor in the eastern Paris suburb, Noisy-le-grand, said the Front National and Islam had a lot in common.

He told French newspaper, Le Parisien: “Like Islam, the FN defends the weakest. The party denounces exorbitant interest rates charged on the debt of our country, and Islam is against the practice of usury.” Continue reading “Councillor from French far-right party Front National converts to Islam – and urges others to follow”

CNN) — It was in the cave of Hira that the prophet Muhammad received the first revelation of the Quran. For rugby’s original wild child Sonny Bill Williams, meeting a Tunisian family who lived with their five children in a one-bedroom flat in the south of France proved pivotal to his conversion to Islam.

The New Zealander’s unshakeable belief in the Almighty has proved to be the making of one of the island nation’s most gifted — and controversial — sports stars.
“I was real close with them, and I saw how happy and content they were. And to see how they lived their lives, it was just simple,” Sonny Bill Williams, a prodigious rugby talent, professional boxer and tattooed poster boy, tells CNN’s Human to Hero series.

My name is Yusuf Pitre
Born and raised Christian till age 12.

Age 13 I was orphaned by a drunk driver who killed my mother, father and brother, only leaving me Alive in the car. From that point on I denounced my faith in Christianity. From age 13 till age 23, I lived my life only for sex, drugs and playing music in bands, the worst music at that, I was into satanism and demonic music. My life was going nowhere. I was always depressed and felt like something was missing in my life, I hated being around people and had antisocial problems. Age 24 I Joined the US military, changed my life around, gave up the music and drugs. 2010 got deployed to Iraq, after the deployment things got worse for me, my people problems got so bad in US, that I needed to get away, my time with the military was almost up, so I found a job in Kuwait as a security contractor. There I started to meet Muslims, and started making friends with some of them, and from that I started studying Quran, at the time I was against all religions, but the more I read Quran the more my heart was opened. I started feeling things I never felt before, I started feeling peace in my heart instead of hate, my depression stopped, my life was changing fast for the better. After a few months of studying and feeling the difference in my life, I reverted to Islam, since then Allah has blessed me so much, Alhamdullilah. I am Muslim 3 years now, I live my life for Allah and helping others see true Islam. I have a page called (True Islam by Yusuf Pitre) on Facebook, plz check it out.

A homeless man took shahadah after studying Quran

10262106_722504371137845_1026192250246168412_n

Mashallah
A homeless man who has met our Daees before and discussed about Islam.
He took the Quran, sat down and read it for long.
Today he spoke to us again and said he feels very comfortable and amazed at the brotherhood and caring nature of Muslims.

He was astonished at the 5 pillars of Islam which are all focused at God’s obedience and ultimately creates brotherhood for humans with no borders and leaves no room for racism.

Finally he embraced Islam. May Allah strengthen our Daees words and keep the brother firm (our Daees have offered assistance to help him, teach him and live with him as brothers)
