Stories of New Muslims


In the Name of Allah, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful

This page is built on the shoulders of those people who have volunteered their personal stories of how they entered Islam. If you, the reader, are open to the possibility that Allah, the Creator, has given you clear evidence to accept Him and His message of Islam, then read these stories. From different backgrounds, and different experiences, you just might find someone here who had the same questions and doubts that you may have. Many of these people have endured against tremendous obstacles, including parental opposition, despair with other religions, being blind, and being lied to about the true nature of Islam.

If you would like to share your story on how you entered Islam, please let us know! Send your story to msa@usc.edu.


Becoming Muslim

The following set of stories are mostly taken from email and newsgroup submissions.

The following stories are taken from the book Islam Our Choice, compiled and edited by Ebrahim Ahmed Bawany, 1961. Note that some of the people have titles beside their names, such as 'Lord' or 'Sir'. Their titles are not conferred by Islam: status in society is not the same as status in front of Allah. We have retained the titles to reproduce the book faithfully; we believe that most people will appreciate this.
