Insha'Allah, if you have found this page, you will find a blessing from reading some of the the stories I have written documenting my journey into Islam. It seems that since I came to embrace Islam, my mind has been flooded with thoughts and ideas...my senses are keener than they have been in a long time, and I feel reborn!
There have been so many wonderful experiences along the path of this new life changing journey, that I found myself being led to begin to document some of them; whereupon I considered that the internet could quite possibly be the most effective venue through which to record them! Insha'Allah, hopefully Allah subhanaahu wa wa ta'ala will be able to use these experiences to encourage and strengthen those who may be led to read them!
By way of introduction, you can read my "Shahada" story. It seemed like a great idea to put this story together after I had been asked many times, "How did you become a Muslim?"
The presumption that my conversion (or reversion) had to be because of marriage, or because of September 11th, was so predominant a first reaction in everyone's mind, that it had begun to drive me crazy!
No, I did not embrace Islam because of marriage, and I did not come into the religion because of September 11th! Al-hamduillah! I came into the religion because I was led by Allah subhannahu wa ta'ala!
After writing the Shahada story, my second article was inspired as my first Ramadan approached in November of 2002, and "Adopt A Ramadan Buddy" was born!
Al-hamduillah, when my first Ramadan came, I found myself writing the story of "My First Ramadan", and so the journey began! Now there is a Journey Library! *smile*
Insha'Allah, if it furthers the purpose of delivering the message of the beauty and peace of Islam, then please feel free to share this page with your friends, Jazakallahu khayran (may you be blessed for doing so).
Insha'Allah, if you drop in from time to time, I will do my best to keep these pages updated.
May Allah subhanaahu wa ta'ala guide us and bless each one.
