U.S. Pilot and Entrepreneur Richard Patterson converted to Islam

Just stayed one month in Saudi Arabia, where he was treated well in an atmosphere of religion, an American businessman who is also a pilot, Richard Patterson, converted to Islam.

Richard, who is now named Abdulaziz, has a company that provides services to help critical care and has a wealth of $ 50 million, and two private planes and two helicopters, which are used for special medical flight.

Richard arrived in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in fulfilling a contract with the Saudi Arabian Red Crescent Societies, to train students in providing emergency relief in the air.

During his stay in Saudi Arabia three people from the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Endowments, Da’wah and Guidance invites Richard out for dinner. All three Saudis are also members working in the project “Guide Me to Islam” (Lead I Towards Islam), talking with Richard about Islam and the essence of true Islam.

“I came to Saudi Arabia for the affairs of commercial transactions. I was so happy to make the best decisions of my life to God, to declare myself to Islam,” said Richard aka Abdulaziz, during the ceremony of conversion to Islam.

He praised the Saudi clothing and described it as comfortable and beautiful clothes.

When Abdulaziz in his country (America), he always used to hearing negative things about Islam through media channels, which aims menjelekan image of Islam.

“Just read about Islam is not enough to understand Islam. Meeting with these people represent and reflect the true spirit,” said Abdulaziz.

He considers himself lucky to find Islam through Muslim friends who accompanied him and discovered in Arabia that Islam is the religion of truth and tolerance.

“Muslims and Saudis kind, humble and open to others,” said Abdulaziz, adding that he felt they were like his own family, and never felt diasingi or mistreatment of them.

For Abdulaziz, the most interesting part of Saudi society is that they are a religious people, who help others to know the religion as part of their everyday lives.

“I wish I could bring all my friends to Saudi Arabia so he could experience what I find and change their view of Islam,” he said again.

Abdulaziz called on fellow Muslims so that employers can invite other foreign businessmen who converted to Islam.

Abdulaziz criticized the attitude of Muslim businessmen who are not serious business associates invite their foreign, to enter the noble religion of Islam. “We can provide books about Islam to the delegates during the business meeting to help clarify the true image of Islam today to someone else,” said Abdulaziz.

A teacher who became translators Abdulaziz, Esam Abdul Razzaq said that celebrities and key figures play a bigger role in their communities to show a certain image.

“Successful people have credibility among members of their community, because they are considered important. Therefore, when they choose to embrace Islam, would trigger the curiosity of others, who want to know more about this religion,” said Abdul Razzaq more. (Arn)

Australian Artist Mr. Peter Gould converted to Islam

Peter Gould

Artist from Australia is starting to explore Islam in 2002. All started from his visit to Muslim countries to enrich his artistic inspiration.

“I’m very inspired by the old towns such as Granada, Fes, and Damascus. Experience was enriched horizons of thought and open up my creativity, Thank God,” he said.

Peter Gould, the artist, fell in love with the design elements and artistic traditions of the Middle East who have been hundreds of years old. “I shoot a lot of things and trying to absorb the details. Calligraphy, the domes, tiles, arches, and the bright colors are amazing. It’s really amazing. “

“I am compelled to put everything I saw into the work and combine it with graphic design projects and works of art that I made,” said Gould. For him, Islamic art has an extremely rich spectrum.

His admiration for the design of Islamic art coloring curiosity about Islam, the religion which he knew from a Muslim friend who had met only. The new color which immediately fills the hearts of his art was once the heart of the artist to establish bersyahadat in the same year, ten years ago.

***

Peter Gould was born and grew up in the middle of a non-Muslim family in Sydney, Australia, and spent his time there. Graduated from Sydney Technical High School, Gould was a student at the University of Technology in Sydney and explore the art of design.

When he was 19 years, through one of his friends, Gould knew a Muslim female South African nationality. Behaviors and traits of a girl named Inshirah Khan had met only brought forth a great curiosity in Gould, about the Muslim and his religion.

“He is a smart woman, and very patiently answered my questions. That made me even more curious, “Gould said in an interview. Of the Muslim friends, Gould continued to seek out and slowly understand Islam. He also began attending lectures and reading some books about Islam.

When the greater curiosity about Islam, Gould began to be careful. Especially in the family, given that none of their background or had any contact with religion being studied at that time.

“I put my own interest in, and for a year hiding under a pile of magazines Koran my guitar,” said the man who has been blessed with two daughters had.

Gould recognizes the efforts of Islam, and the explanation of many Muslim friends who helped him understand Islam, led to an important conclusion in his mind. Gould believes Islam is the most logical and beautiful manifestation of the two sentences creed. “The woman has now become my wife, thank God,” says the founder of Creative Cubed Pty Ltd is.

About the biggest factor that makes Islam accept, Gould describes the religion of Prophet Muhammad brought that provides the complete guide to living life. In addition, he found that the Koran, the Muslim book, is a document that contains all that phenomenal.

Interesting things about Islam in the eyes of Gould is a rejection of materialism and individualism, as is the case in Western countries. “Islam is really a beautiful philosophy. I find many things through the principles of universality, “said Gould.
