Assalamou aleikoum wa rahmatoullah wa barakatou


The following conversion stories have been taken from the book ''Yes! I converted to Islam and here is why'' *Yes! I converted to Islam & here is why **A compilation of reversion stories by M. S. Shahid** 087-YesIConverted which was given to me free as part of a dawah package.

Inshallah they can inspire other readers who need this little extra moral support or the little extra help to take the plunge and convert/revert to Islam (I put the two terms here because really, I do not want to enter in a debate of which is the best word rolleyes . For me, whoever is more comfortable with one of the term is welcome to use it here wink ).

So, here we are,

Yes! I converted to Islam & here is why
by Muhammad Haneef Shaheed
adapted by Darussalam Research Division.


If you like the book, and can afford it then please, do buy it. It is priced around £3.00 and $4.95 online. I am pretty sure it is more or less the same in high street bookshops.
You can find it at Darussalam and Islamicbookstore.

Publishers Note


All praise is due to Allah, and may He exalt the mention of our Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa , his household and Companions.

Allah has chosen Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa to be His last Messenger to convey His lost Message to mankind. this means that Islam is not restricted to one particular race, rather, it is a universal mesage to manking at large. It is the only Deen of which Allah approves. He says:

''And he who seeks a Deen other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him and he shall be among the losers on the Day of Resurrection. (3:85)

Islam has received throughout ages great response to the point that there is not a single city in the world which is void of Muslims. This is due to the fact that whoever applies reason while studying Islam, cannot help but accepts it out of conviction.

Darussalam has compiled in this book sample testimonies of those who studied Islam objectively and converted to it conscientiously. It is not that Islam needs such testimonies in order to very its authenticity. Our intention is to let those who have not yet contemplated converting to Islam share the insights of those who already have by reading their testimonies and to know that Islam is a faith which is suitable for all ages and applicable until the end of time.

Our ultimate objective is to pass on the Message and to help deliver as many people was we can from the torment of Hell expecting our reward only from Allah the Exalted to Whom we are grateful.

Views of the Reverts in brief about Islam

rosebar


Moderation and temperance are
keynote of Islam


The simplicity of Islam, the powerful appeal and compelling atmosphere of its mosques, the earnestness of its faithful adherents, the confidence inspiring realization of the millions throughout the world who answer the five daily calls to prayer - these factors attracted me from the first.

The broad-minded tolerance of Islam for other religions recommends it to all lovers of liberty. Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa admonished his followers to treat well the believers in the Old and New Testament; and Abraham, Moses, Jesus are acknowledged as co-Prophets of the One God. Surely this is generous and far in advance of the attitude of other religions.
Moderation and temperance in all things, keynote of Islam, won my unqualified approbation.

Islam alone can satisfy the needs of every
member of the human family


Christianity must go the way of all things, and henceforth perish and forever to make room for the True Religion of God to mankind, and that is Islam, which is Truth, sincerity, toleration, looking to the interests of man and pointing him to the Right Way. Islam alone can satisfy the needs of every member of the human family, and Muslims are the only people among whom can be found the ''True Book of Brotherhood'' in reality and not mere ''make belief'' as in Christianity.

Islam alone offers the solution
of present-day problems


To the Western mind, the chief appeal of Islam must be its simplicity. Admittedly, there are one or two other faiths which are as easy to approach but they sadly lack the vitality of the Faith of the Prophet Sallalahu aleihi wa , and the spiritual and moral elevation which it offers.

Islam must also appeal by virtue of its tolerance... Strangely Christian intolerance awakened my first interest in Islam.
The Churches are utterly incapable of grappling with present-day problems. Islam alone offers the solution.

Islam has always attracted me both
by its simplicity and by the
devotion of its followers


Since adopting Islam as my faith I feel that I have come to a turning point in my life, and to account for this, to give you some idea as to why I have become a Muslim. I have subjected myself to what I might call a self-psychological analysis.
Islam has always attracted me both by its simplicity and by the devotion of its followers.... I was taught to regard all religions other than Christianity as blasphemous and their adherents as heathens.
Islam has given me a very practical method of breaking down the barrier of materialism in one of the Five Pillars of Faith, namely ''Prayer''. The Muslim prayer keeps me constantly aware of my duty to Allah, to my soul, and to my fellow creatures.

The purity and simplicity of the Islamic
Faith and its obvious Truth made
a special appeal to me!


The purity and simplicity of the Islamic Faith, its freedom from dogma and sacerdotalism and its obvious Truth made a special appeal to me. The honesty and sincerity of the Muslims, too, are greater than anything I have seen in Christians.

Another beauty of Islam is its equality. It is only Islam that has real equality maintained between man and man and no other religion has anything like it . The Faith of Islam generates unity.

The Deen of Islam is also the cleanest religion in the world because Muslims have to wash the exposed parts of the body five times a day, a practice not found in any other religion of the world.

In Islam I have found the true Faith for
which I had been seeking for so long


I devoted a considerable amount of my spare time to a thorough study of an English translation of the Holy Qur'an, and as I read over and over, certain of the words of the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu aleihi wa I could not help but see that here, at last, in Islam, I had found the true faith for which I had been seeking so long.
I would like to say that I feel confident , that if only people in this and other Western countries can be brought to appreciate the full meaning of Islam, and what it stands for, the ranks of Islam will be daily swelled, only unfortunately there is a vast amount of misapprehension in the minds of many 'Free thinkers' and others who still cling to their old creed simply because they require the moral courage to abandon a faith, with the principles of which they are, at variance, and to embrace Islam.

Walker H. Williams

I have accepted Islam because it fits in
so well with my own ideas


A man becomes a truer Christian or a Jew by way of Islam, than by any way advocated by the Christian or Jewish people to-day.

In Islam, there is tolerance and an acknowledgement of universal brotherhood. So, I may say, that I have accepted Islam because it fits in so well with my own ideas about Allah and His beautiful plan. It is the only Faith that I really can understand. Indeed, such is its simplicity and beauty that even a little child can understand it.

Islam is the religion I have
been seeking for


Islam is the religion I have been seeking for since my school days. My mind was dissatisfied all along with the Christian teachings till I was old enough to have independence of thought to shake them off. I came in touch with the true religion of Islam. I b ecame interested in Islam, whose keynote is simplicity - for instance, belief in the Unity(1) of Allah. This is why it appeals to me.
The religion of Islam has given me peace and happiness such as I never had before.

Miss Joan Fatima

(1) ''Unity'' is not the proper word to use, instead, the word ''Oneness'' describes Monotheism in a real sense - Editor.

If Britain and Europe were converted to
Islam, they would again be powerful
forces for good


There is no version of Christianity which is really satisfactory, Christians believe that because of the fall of Adam and Eve, all human beings are born in a state of original sin, and are unable by their own actions to merit Heaven. Muslim, however, do not believe that people are punished for the sin of Adam and Eve. They believe that all human beings are born of innocence, and can only lose their hope of Heaven by their own sins when they are old enough to be guilty of deliberate wrong-doing.
If Britain and Europe were converted to Islam, they would again be powerful forces for good. British and European Muslims are some of the best.

Views of the Reverts in brief
about the Noble Qur'an

The Noble Qur'an contains what
every soul mostly requires


Since my youth, I have been greatly impressed by Islamic civilization in all its aspects, its poetry and architecture; and very often I have told myself that a people who could give to the world so vast a treasure of beauty and significance in every branch of culture, must also have attained to the highest levels both in philosophy and religion.

In my enthusiasm for Islam, I began to study all religions, from the most ancient to those of the present day, comparing each with the other, and subjecting them to very close criticism; and little by little, I became convinced that the Muslim worship is the True Religion, and the Noble Qur'an contained what every soul mostly requires for its spiritual elevation.

I studied a Muslim translation of the
Noble Qur'an and was astounded
to read such noble precepts and
inspiring passages!


I studied a Muslim translation of the Noble Qur'an, and was astounded to read such noble precepts and inspiring passages, wuch wise and practical advice for everyday life. It made me wonder why I had been taught that Muhammad was a false prophet, and how I had not heard truthful about this wonderful religion earlier.

Islam, if sincerely followed, must bring that peace to the mind and body which the world itself needs, and create a perfect social order.

Hasan V. Mathews

The Noble Qur'an is full of truths, and its
teachings are so practical and free from
dogmatic tenets and mysteries!


As a Roman Catholic, I had the opportunity of studying the Catholic faith to a great extent. I was doing my best to convince myself that Catholicism as the only true faith, but alas! its mysteries, dogmas and the compulsory 'must believes' did not permit me to remain quiet. I started my search for the Truth and remained engaged in this for many years quite silently.
In hinduism and budhism, I found such 'vacant spots' that the only alternative left to me was to study Islam. At one time, I really held Islam in abhorrence. I had no Muslim friends, for Islam was so repulsive to me that I did not want to associate with its adherents. Little did I dream that... books on Islam would make a new man of me. I was gradually becoming so observed in the lovely teachings of Islam that it did not take me long to go earnestly further into it. I began to love Islam because of its straight and non-mysterious path. It is clean and simple, yet so full of deep studies that I soon felt the inevitable was drawing nigh.
The Noble Qur'an, some passages of which I read, simply struck me with wonder, for I had the idea that there was nothing to rival the Bible. I found, however, that I was hopelessly mistaken in this. Indeed, the Noble Qur'an is so full of truths, and its teachings so practical and free from dogmatic tenets and mysteries, that i was daily being drifted into the religion of 'Peace and Love' which Islam certainly is.

As Salamu Alaikum 

Reversion stories are always an inspiration to New Muslims and even born Muslims, those who went astray.

Many found their way back reading the stories of Reverts.

 Alhamdulillah  this book is now available as an eBook for free download.
