Christian to Muslim

Reader comment on item: A Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: The Fastest Growing Religion? Facts behind the Fiction

Submitted by Aaliyah (Australia), May 18, 2006 at 05:31

First of all, let me state my intentions as they are only good. Im not here to preach, argue or offend anybody. I am a new muslim, I converted from Christianity 2 years ago. You said "Muslims are making efforts to spread Islam, but we need facts". Here's a fact for you: People from all over the world are seeking a path everyday. Especially in this day and age, our lives fly past so quickly because of work and other commitments. As for myself, all the contradictions I came across in Christianity was slowing killing my belief in it. But my belief in God was my foundation and it pushed me to search for the right path. I believe if the truth is out there, then it will allow me to find it. You cant possibly be in a religion while you question it or even have the slightest doubt in your mind about it. How can you honestly say you have faith if you dont understand something? I looked into Hinduism, Buddism, Judaism...but the only religion that stood out, answering all my questions giving me a belief in one God but also a belief in Jesus Christ was, of course, Islam. Was there any pressure on me? Was there even anyone around me to guide me through this? NO! Only God. So nobody should sit there and say that Islam is not at all the fastest growing religion, because I bet you havent even done half the research I have. Look into other religions. Instead of criticising, why dont you do your homework? Why not? I mean, if youre so sure that your religion is the truth then you shouldnt be afraid of discovering what other people believe in. Get the facts for yourself before you throw it out there! Have you even met a muslim? The only non-muslims that criticise Muslims are the ones that havent even had a conversation with a muslim, let alone befriended one. Be more open minded and just do it. At the end of the day, we are all believers of God. We all believe there is a heaven and hell. Instead of criticising each other we should concentrate on the people who have no belief at all. How horrible is it to go on in this life not believing there is something much more powerful looking after us, setting a path out for us? So many things they take for granted simply because they dont know.
