Stories of New Muslims

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Themise Cruz

If anyone were to ask me when I became Muslim, I guess the only feasible answer would be that I was born Muslim, but just wasn’t aware of it. We are all born into a state of Islam, but what is unfortunate is that many people never recognize this fact, and live lost in other […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Tena

Both my husband and I converted to Islam. I converted during Ramadan last year and my husband shortly after. The thing that drew me to Islam was the hijab and loose clothing of the Muslim women. We both did research by Internet and then read ahadith. I was totally convinced. I went to a masjid […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Sumaya Fannoun

April 12, 1998. Bismillah Arahman Araheem My intention in writing my story is that for Allah’s sake, I may help someone who is searching for the Truth, to realize that they have found it in Al Islam. I began writing this on Easter Sunday, kind of appropriate, I think. I have been Muslim now for […]

Stories of New Muslims / Mrs. Shariffa Carlo

The story of how I reverted to al Islam is a story of plans. I made plans, the group I was with made plans, and Allah made plans. And Allah is the Best of Planners. When I was a teenager, I came to the attention of a group of people with a very sinister agenda. […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Penomee

July 4, 1997. A salaam aleikum, beloved family. “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammed is his messenger.” These are the words of the Shahadah oath, I believe. The Creator is known by many names. His wisdom is always recognizable, and his presence made manifest in the love, tolerance and compassion present in our […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Natassia M. Kelly

I was raised to believe in God from childhood. I attended church nearly every Sunday, went to Bible school, and sang in the choir. Yet religion was never a really big part of my life. There were times when I thought myself close to God. I often prayed to him for guidance and strength in […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Michelle

As-salaamu-alaikum, I come from a Jewish family in New York. My mother was from S. A. but also Jewish. She never was comfortable with anyone knowing that. When my father died, she remarried a Catholic and became one herself. And that is how she brought us up. From the age of 5 I was told […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Malaak

I am a new Muslim woman from Richmond, VA. I had never even met Muslims before last year, and had no idea that there was an Islamic center in my own city. However, at that time, I was very interested in Islam, but I could find nothing to read. I read encyclopedias and any books […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Karima Razi

I took the Shahadah on September 20, 1991. If you had told me 5 years prior that I would embrace Islam, I never would have believed you. In retrospect, Allah’s guidance was so subtle yet consistent, that now I see my whole life as leading up to that moment. It is difficult to encapsulate the […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Kaci Starbuck

My first realization about the Christian idea of salvation came after I was baptized into a Southern Baptist church at a young age. I was taught in Sunday School that “if you aren’t baptized, then you are going to hell”. My own baptism had taken place because I wanted to please people. My mom had […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Jihadah

I grew up in the United States, Philadelphia Pa. I was raised as a Christian in the Baptist Church. My mother made me go to church every Sunday and on that day the only music that was allowed to be played was Gospel. I never liked church very much, it always seemed to me, to […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Jewellee

I am a new Muslim. I am writing to tell you ‘why’ I converted to Islam, but it’s going to be more like ‘how.’ Last year, at the age of 23, I was trying to open an import/export company to sell children’s books overseas. Much thought went into my decision to work with Saudi Arabia […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Helena

Growing up in a supposedly Christian, but in fact non-religious family, I never heard the name of God being uttered, I never saw anyone pray and I learned early on that the only reason for doing things was to benefit yourself. We celebrated Christmas, Easter, Mid-summer and All Saints Day and even though I never […]

Stories of New Muslims / Ms. Celine Leduc

Salam Alekhum. I became Muslim almost three years ago, right after Ramadan in between the two Eids. My spiritual search lasted over thirty years. I was born a Catholic and found many things I did not agree with: I believe in Jesus, but did not believe that he was the son of God, nor that […]
