Hello Mami and Papi,
I don't know how else to approach you in order to explain my reasoning
behind my life changing decision and have you listen and understand at the
Since I can long remember I
have not be a strong believer
of Christianity, there was a lot
that did not make sense to me,
for example, why I have to beg
for forgiveness to a priest?
Why I have to pray to saints
and not straight to God, why is
Jesus the SON of God, why are
their SOO many versions of the bible?
The religion became a fascination to me, and I truly wanted to know more.
I purchased a few books in the UK and read some pamphlets on the religion.
I did not make any decisions but I continued to read and become more
familiar to Islam.
Islam began making sense to me, the idea that we pray only to Allah, that we
ask Allah for help and for forgive us, how a book (the Quran) that was
written thousands of years ago remains unchanged as of today (there are
different translations but no different versions) . Also how a book that was
written years ago managed to explain scientific situations that was only
discovered by man kind only a couple of year ago. Or how the Quran has
managed to explains how babies develop in the womb? How would anyone
thousands of years ago know this and in such detail? Especially since scientist
discovered the explanation of these situations less that 100 years ago?? How
can we explain those wonders of the book?
Also how can I deny the holy book when it has been so clear in explaining
advanced technology, how the day turns into the night, the creation of
human beings by water (as we know scientifically to be known that we came
from cells) layers of heaven (which we describe now in scientific terms as the
atmospheric levels?). Furthermore, the beginning of the universe and the
movement of tectonic plates (there are numerous other examples of the
science behind the Quran).
What also has touched me is that Islam believes in ALL THE PROPHETS –
