Many american convert to islam after sept 11

Reader comment on item: The Evil Isn't Islam

Submitted by aziz lamallem (United States), Sep 6, 2003 at 19:17

I came to america after the tragedy of september to support my wife who is doing a post doctorate. I start to practice Islam not long time ago, and since i have been here in america, i saw so many american people convert to islam. I was very surprised, how come people after what happened come to islam.

I have always had this picture in my mind, because people are scared of what is different so stay away from it, and when you try to understand the difference you don't see it any more and you are less scared and sometimes you wish to be just like them in simplicity, kindness, happy of what God gives, or not gives to them..


I wish with all my heart that you will find peace in yourself and share it with others
