I came to Islam after 9-11. As an American I wanted to know my "enemy" and once I came to understand Islam I knew it was what I always believed anyway and I shortly thereafter took shahadah.
However I did not fully embrace Islam until right before Ramadan.
I am an American. Born and raised. Blond hair and green eyes, Christian background but empty and searching for answers. I even spent a year studying Judaism in my search but nothing ever answered my questions and fulfilled my longing for the oneness of my creator until Islam
I am not isolated from my family Their choice. Ifind it difficult to function in USA as a revert/convert But am committed to my newfound way of life I thank you for this website (muuslimconverts.com) and to the sense of community and belonging it will offer
Allah would not bring me to this if He was not going to see me through. Deborah Frazier
