I was born Christian .. but I did not feel comfortable

I was born Christian .. but I did not feel comfortable.
After being in Africa (Senegal), where I attended many Muslims, I started to get interested in Islam.
A religion full of love and respect .. and I found it so beautiful I thought about it all the time.
And from one day to the next I went out with the hijab and I was proud of myself .. my parents were against, but I was finally free
Until today this religion filled my heart with joy and freedom. And i say Alhamdulillah( Praise be to Almighty God )

Whosoever Almighty God guides,none can lead him astray and whosoever is led astray cannot be guided.

Almighty God says in the Glorious Qur’an :

“Say [O Muhammad PBUH]: ‘O People of the Scripture [Jews and Christians]: come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allaah, and we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allaah.’ Then, if they turn away, say, ‘Bear witness that we are Muslims.’”

[Holy Qur’an, Aal ‘Imraan 3:64]

In another Ayah, Allah( Subhanahu wa Ta’ala ) said,

﴿وَمَن يَبْتَغِ غَيْرَ الإِسْلَـمِ دِينًا فَلَن يُقْبَلَ مِنْهُ﴾

(And whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted of him)
[Holy Qur’an 3:85]

In this Ayah ﴿3:19﴾, Allah ( Subhanahu wa Ta’ala ) said, asserting that the only religion accepted with Him is Islam,.

Protestant Christian Steven Eric Reverted to Islam

About 13 years ago, Steven Eric Krauss is a young man most responsible. In 1998, young people who are undergoing periods of college was hit by uncertainty. In his heart grew a doubt the truth of religion was embraced since birth, Protestant Christianity.

Both parents Krauss is a Protestant Christian. Although born of Protestant families, but seldom admitted Krauss worship as did the followers of that religion. He was away from the activities of worship, because of her religion as an institution, does not give anything in life.

”It’s hard to find any kind of religion that I can use for everyday life, “he wrote in an article titled My Journey to Islam – How Malay martial arts led a theologically dissatisfied American Protestant to Islam. Since adolescence, Krauss are already feeling not satisfied with the teachings of Christianity.

He said the religion of his parents were weaker and less able to shed some light on the divine and the relationship between man and God. “In my opinion, the Christian philosophy that relies heavily on a strange relationship with Jesus, who is God, but also human beings,” he said.

Krauss claimed to have difficulty accepting that a Christian worldview can not pray directly to God, but rather in the name of Jesus. ”Why did God have to take shape as a human being,”he said. These questions are then encouraged to seek better answers about God. He was more looking for the spiritual value of a religion.

Came later when I was in junior college, he shared a room with a Jew who is studying the martial arts. Pencak silat learned that his friend is the kind of martial arts that exist in Malaysia. When the martial arts are very close to the teachings of Islam.

Each time, the young Jewish home, she always told Krauss about the uniqueness of silat and spiritual dimensions of existing wealth. From these stories, finally Steven was intrigued. One Saturday morning, he chose to go with a friend of one room in a martial arts training sessions.

Although initially he had not realized that his heart was thrilled with Islam, Krauss acknowledged his first martial arts training on February 28, 1998 that’s what drove him to become converts. When he met with Cikgu (teacher in Bahasa Malaysia) Sulaiman.

The martial arts teacher that introduced him to Islam. Whereas before, that religion has never occurred at all in the mind Krauss. Feeling increasingly interested in martial arts, he also devote more time to practice and meet with the teacher.

He and his roommate was also a teacher came to the house of Solomon to learn more. Ever, in the summer of 1998, they spent time with the family of Solomon. Every day, he was in contact with a Muslim family. He saw the way they worship, and the lifestyle of a true Muslim.

The result, his knowledge of silat and Islam even more. According to Islam a religion that became part of the life of adherents, it is different from that separate Christian daily life with religion.

initially, he felt alien to Islam. Especially when he was still adopts a liberal and not very interested in things that are dogmatic. However, over time, it is regarded as a dogma in Islam, it turned out to be a submission to God. A way of life that is run by its adherents.

It took one and a half years, or more precisely on July 30, 1999, Steven bersyahadat. He later took the name of Islam, Abdul-Lateef Abdullah. He realized that American culture and then come be a challenge. The country’s culture is very accommodating Adi-nafus worldly lust.

In America, happiness is not far away from consumption and what is already possessed by the material. The market system is the benchmark of American society. However, instead focusing on the Islamic way of living a healthy and positive. Islam could be the answer for social problems. This is what distinguishes Islam with other religions.

”Islam also provide the knowledge, explanations, and guidance of every aspect of life (physical, spiritual, mental, financial, etc.). Only Islam gives a clear purpose in life,”said Abdul-Lateef Abdullah.

Since becoming a Muslim, he finally realized that Islam really can be hold in life. Whatever is done adherents is a great way to always remember God. Way of life Islam allows its followers to keep doing it every time, starting from waking up to go back to the contest.

With the remembrance of Allah, the Muslims are able to get away from all kinds of actions and behaviors that are less healthy and less likely to be useful. They are very focused on the energy provided by God. ”By remembering God we become stronger and healthier in every aspect of our lives and we will be spared from thoughts and behaviors that are not good,”said Abdul Lateef.

Similar to the experience of other converts, he admitted that he had to adjust his life to the Islamic way of life. He was grateful, given facilities to cope with it all. So, Abdul Lateef can still live among the people of other Americans, but still holding fast to the teachings of Islam.

So it is with his family. When first informed of his decision to convert to Islam, his family and close friends began to ask many questions and very concerned with his life. However, they just do not see the decision as something negative. With the long and deep, eventually they can understand.

It was truly captivated by the truth and perfection of the religion of Islam
