I Finally Found the Answer ~ Muslim Revert


– My name’s Yusuf, I’m 52 years of age, I’ve been a Muslim for 27 years. Ethnically, I’m from Irish stock, with a bit of English in there as well. Father was Catholic,
my mother was Catholic, although only nominally Catholic. They didn’t really take it that seriously. We didn’t have any
religious upbringing at all, no education in terms of religion and we lived our lives as we saw fit, as our desires took us, we went. My mother and father used
to give me some indications of what is right and what is wrong, but very, very little in the
way of religious instruction, so we were free. Basically, I left school at the age of 15, I ran away from home at the age of 15. My father had already
left home when I was 4 and the last thing I
said to my father was, Dad, you better leave, because my mom doesn’t like you anymore. That was the last time
I saw him as a child until I was 24, I went to
seek him out after that. That was part of the journey
for me to find myself, because once I’d left home,
I started traveling a lot, I started broadening my
horizons, meeting people. I’d always ask lots of
very difficult questions and usually, people would come back to me, saying, why do you ask so many questions, you’re so annoying,
(laughs) get out of here. But I kept asking
questions, because my idea was that I’m on this amazing journey with thousands of thousands
of people around me, millions of people around me
and I should be asking them, like they should be asking
me, what’s it all about? Where’s this journey taking us? Has someone got a road map? Where’s the sat nav? So, yeah, I spent years
and years and years asking and traveling and asking again. And naturally, when I read
books on philosophy or religions or the purpose of life,
so I started to seek out those people that were
writing those books, so I met the Christians, I met the Jews, I met the Buddhists, I met
the Hindus, I met everyone, apart from Muslims, by the
way, because I didn’t even know what Muslim was or Islam
was at all at that time. I asked the Christian,
at least one or twice, and they said they
didn’t know who God was. I met some Hindu worshipers and they weren’t able to answer the simple questions about
what the purpose of life was, in a very, very simple,
easy, understandable, digestible way, so I left them. I met the Buddhists and I
started doing Buddhist meditation for at least three months, I was doing, and it made me feel good,
so I didn’t leave off the Buddhist meditation. But I asked the question, I
popped the question one day, and I said, to one of the guys, he happened to be white, Buddhists as well. I asked him what’s the purpose of life? So, he was stirring his
herbal tea at the time and he got round 15 rounds of stirring and then he tried to answer the question. He said to contemplate the supreme. Nothingness. I said I’m confused, confused.com. He tried to justify why
he had evidently mentioned a contradiction in terms, by
any stretch of the imagination it’s difficult to imagine
something supreme, and yet absolutely nothing. So he tried to give me the Golden Sutras and I started reading that,
and I couldn’t understand it. I didn’t think I was a shallow individual who couldn’t understand things
because I’d been reading a lot, I’d been reading
Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, Russian authors and very complex
materials in order to try and find the purpose of life, not to try and be big and intelligent. So this book I couldn’t understand. I said it can’t be the truth. Because the truth has
to be easily understood by most of the people
if not all the people. I left that, but I continued
doing my Buddhist meditation. I started looking into
the Chinese philosophies. I started doing martial arts,
I started doing Tai Chi. I did Tai Chi for three years. I was still reading and reading,
every -ism and every schism and every possible thing
which would help me to try and find me, Tim, who am I? It was a big struggle, massive struggle. So I went off and I was told that that top 5% of the world,
they go to university. I got to Sussex University
studying politics and third world development because that seemed really interesting to me. But it wasn’t the paper,
it wasn’t the subject, it was the fact that I was
going there with this top 5% of the world, sitting with me. So I got there and I was
mortally disappointed because most of them were
just out to get drunk and have a hedonistic
lifestyle while they were away from their family for the
first time in their lives. I was there in the university
and I was pushing, prodding, poking everyone again, again,
and again, trying to find out what this life is, and 99% of the people just don’t want to talk about it. This is what I found. You gotta find the 1%. When you find the 1%, you
don’t want to leave them. One day I had a particular female friend who told me not to bother
calling her the day after. I went to the Islamic Society
because I was so confused and I had a real bust up with her and a fall out with her and an argument. I wanted to know why she kicked me out, because she said as
she was kicking me out, something to do with my religion. I happened to know she was a Muslim. After all of these millions of questions, and unanswered questions at that, what led me to this faith was an argument about a religion which she
claimed to be following. So anyway, knocked on the
door of the Islamic Society and I found this Iraqi
guy with his head scarf and a smile as well, kind of a nice smile, and I said, look, I’ve got a
problem with my girlfriend. He said you got a problem
with your girlfriend, why? Well, she’s Muslim and she just told me that she didn’t want me to come today and I want to know why. He kind of said, well
look, best thing I can do is give you these, give
me a pile of books, and he said read all these,
so I did for two weeks. I just read and read and read and read. I read about how to purify
yourself as a Muslim, how to have a bath as a Muslim. How to pray as a Muslim,
what’s the history of Islam. I started reading some of the chapters, small chapters of the book which they claimed was sent from God. Slowly but surely, the
answers started popping up. Just miraculously from this incident. Then I discovered, of course,
the month was Ramadan. Then I started to learn that
these guys were fasting. For 30 days, not continuously, of course, but they were fasting the
daylight hours of this month, and this month was about
the coming of this book which I’d been reading, the Koran. It was a revelation to
me at the time as well because of course I never
knew Islam, Muslims. That was the first time
I heard about Islam, but I never, ever knew
that Islam was a way that white Catholic people like me, growing up in Britain
could possibly accept. I thought it was a religion
for brown people and ethnics. I slowly but surely
started getting the answers to the questions that had been dominant in my life before that 10 years. I couldn’t sleep, days and nights would go by where I couldn’t sleep. There were moments when I
just think what’s the point of this life without knowing,
without having any certainty about a direction, about a
purpose, what’s the point? I mean would anyone go on a journey without knowing the
destination, the purpose? Absolutely not. This is plaguing me. Every day I would be looking at the stars and I would be literally
crying every night, crying myself to sleep because
you’re tiny and this is huge. This has a game plan. This is more than just a mere coincidence, a mere happening. That is something that just
happened out of nothing. This is by design. You have to find the purpose. So you come across this book which answers all of the questions. You don’t like what you read,
some of it you don’t like. But it’s kind of good for you, right? You realize it’s good for you. It was probably the third
week of Ramadan then. I was reading and I
was watching these guys that were fasting and
were praying in that place five times a day in that
center and I would join them and I would be doing
the prayers with them, but I couldn’t really
know what was going on, but it felt right. One day I woke up and I said,
look, I’m going to fast today because the fasting is the
thing that really seemed to be very attractive and it
was a challenge for me. I thought it might help me on the journey. So I prayed. I started fasting that day and it was like somebody
had removed the blindfold. They’d unlocked the door. They’d removed the earmuffs. And I was able to think clearly. And just that moment on
that day, on that time, was the moment when I found Islam. Because when you’re fasting sincerely to find the one that created everyone here and everyone out there
and everyone that’s going to be created later on after
we go, we leave this planet, leave this journey, is
the ultimate sacrifice, when you give of your food
and give away the luxuries that you have, and water. You do it sincerely,
seeking the face of the one that created you, is the
moment when you truly, you’ve found yourself. So that was that day, that was the day. I hadn’t taken what
was called the Shahada, or the declaration of
faith because I thought God knows me better so why would I bother? Anyway, I went on right
until the end of Ramadan, and one night I was just
super aware of myself, of needing to get rid of the
past and start something new. It just felt like that. So the whole night I was
just like, I was making this ritual ablution, you know, washing, because I was reading it
all the time in the books I had with me, and trying to get rid of something that was in the past. Then in the morning, very early in the morning, I just walked. I went out and I started
looking for a mosque. I went into a mosque. I got to the top of the stairs and a guy grabbed hold
of me and said, look, what’s going on, what are you here for? Can we help you? I said, yeah, I’ve just
come to embrace Islam. He said, well, we don’t know
you, we’ve never seen you. What do you know about Islam? I said I’d been reading
about Islam for the last two or three weeks, in fact, and
I’d been fasting as well. They were quite surprised and they said, well, have you washed? I said I’ve been washing the
whole night, man (laughs). I made the declaration of faith, and then I kind of got hugged by 300 men. I’ve never been hugged by a guy before, not even my father, I don’t think. I remember feeling that it
really was a very amazing moment. It was unlikely that I
would feel that way again, that feeling of elation, the feeling of, actually, I felt very relieved, because, imagine spending 10
years searching and searching for something which you
don’t even know what that is. It’s not like you go and you
search for something, right, which you know, and you pretty much know where you dropped that thing. So you’ve got a very small
area that you can check from home to work back to school, yeah, I can trace, retrace the journey. But with something like the
purpose of human existence, in a sea of eight billion people, with millions and millions
of potential miles you need to travel and
that took me 10 years. I was 25 or 26 by the
time I embraced Islam. So the feeling was amazing. It was something which is ground-breaking, and then, of course, ever
since we got all the challenges of being a person who does
claim to believe in God. So I didn’t really have any concerns about taking that plunge
and becoming a Muslim because I was doing it sincerely to try, and if I didn’t do it, what
was I going to do instead? How would, I was destined
to fail, to literally become an alcoholic or to be a person that would just live
their life as a hermit, literally, that’s the
way I was thinking it at the time before I embraced Islam. I didn’t really have any hang-ups
about accepting something that was going to really,
truly speaking help me here. It doesn’t matter, the
external didn’t matter to me. At that point, I would do
anything to find the truth. And there’s a lot of people out there like that in this world. I’ve met lots of them. They’re genuinely good people. They have that feeling in their heart. They really want to spill it out, but really there’s
nothing to be fearful of. Rather that you should
be fearful of the fact that you’re not being sincere to yourself, true to yourself. That creates mental conditions. There’s a lot of people
that have psychosis and mental issues because
they’re not true to themselves, what their heart and their
soul is telling them, they’re not doing that. We call it hypocrisy. We mustn’t be hypocrites. The community of Muslims
practicing the faith of Islam is a family that most people don’t have. I gained that family. It’s 1.6 or 1.7 billion people world-wide. I go and visit them, I can
just say, peace be unto you in a gathering of people in a
room and I’ve got potentially a thousand invites right
in front of my face. If I go and pray in a
mosque, wherever it is, Abu Dhabi or Kuwait or America or France. So that’s the community that I never had, and I yearned that community. I remember when I married my
wife, I said I need to marry into a family, I need a
family, because we increasingly in the world, not just in
the western hemisphere, we don’t have, we’re lonely. Forty percent or more of the population of London lives on their own. That’s shocking. People don’t even know their neighbors. This is just London, London
number one capital of the world, that everybody loves to be part of, but people are not part of each other. They’re distant from each other. So I believe that the
greatest thing that the faith of Islam gave me, apart
from the massive direction and being able to have secure in the fact that there is a purpose. I don’t need to go out to the
pub and get drunk anymore. If I want to get drunk,
I just pray (laughs). If I want to find direction,
I’ve got the sat nav. I’ve got the map. If I want to know
anything about the faith, I rest assured, I can
go to someone who knows about the faith and they will
give me direction as well. I have that massive,
beautiful unending family. If you find the right
members of that family, then you feel great. Let’s just be brutally frank,
we need to know who we are, where we’re going, who we created us. We ask ourselves these
questions on a daily basis, even if we don’t vocalize
it, we certainly think it.

    It's nice that he found a book that he feels answers his questions, and a friendly and accepting community of fellow believers. But that doesn't mean he has found the truth. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth and the life – no one comes to the Father except through me". We need more than a belief system and a community – we need a saviour ! Islam teaches that we can earn our way to heaven by pleasing Allah and ensuring that our good deeds outweigh our bad ones. Christianity teaches that heaven is a totally perfect place which none of us deserve to go to, but that if we love and follow Jesus, his perfection and sacrifice break the power of death over us, and restore us to our original state of purity and innocence which we lost when we turned away from God. Once Jesus brings us to heaven we will live there forever with our loving God.

We all equal an we should treat others with dignity. Plz from a sister who thinks we need to become more humble in society an inshallah islam will be at its highest peak. Be true be sincere we should treat everyone equal an hve respect an hve patience.dont harm don talk bad dont murder don't cheat.do businesses sincerely give out lots of charity an go out literally do it urself den u will c the compassionate person u become inshallah.

    You asked the same question what I was asking , I was looking at a tree and a question came to me that this tree im looking at does it have a reason to exist or does it really need a reason to exist,where did the first seed came from that kick started everything. What was there before the big bang, how did intelligence came from big bang and water ,how did single elements came to be . My conclusion was everything has to come from the first cause and one and only cause. Alhamdulillah Allah says I am one and only, and he has created everything ,he has no beginning or end he is for ever living.

Iraa is such a very shia country, a religion that mocks the three companions of Prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h named Abu Bakar, Umar and Utsman. A religion that doesn't acknowledge Mother Aisyah is the Islam's honorable women. I hope you convert to Sunni, sir. Amin.

    MasyaAllah even though i’m a muslim born but your story is just so amazing and inspiring. Allah swt choose you and guide your heart to the right path. One thing that i wanna share with you is don’t miss to perform morning prayer as jamaah at masjid. Praying together with the other at the masjid has so many powerful advantages.

    Buddhism…. to contemplate the "supreme…nothingness", I laughed so much, sorry… he is right, how can something be Supreme and be nothing at the same time, the ultimate contradiction… this is why Allah swt says, all these false religions will fail because they are false and man made.

    It matters not what your religion is, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindou, or not believer, its the religious fundamentalist of all faiths who drive a knife between us, I fear for the future of Europe there is so much hate towards muslims, and reminds me so much of the hate towards europeans people with the Jewish faith in the second world war ,million upon millions of Men Women and children Jewish, Gyspy ,Gay people where murdered, is it going to happen again. I fear we are on a path of disaster, As a Christian all i wish is peace and happiness to all.

    People who converts to ways of Allah( Islam) were truly divine people from inside , they had pure heart and soul, for that reason, The Almighty GOD guided them to the light. Not too many people get are chosen to this path. You study the Holy book, you will find out that God Stated That I guide and bestow my Mercy whoever I choose. Remember we all will die and stand in front our God; answer for our actions. Lucky are ones who converted to Islam and accept God as One. I sure admire these people. My ancestors were non Muslim but by converted to Islam without knowing the true meaning and duties of Islam, however, through these people, thousands of people are born Muslim. May God Bless these Converts and forgive them.

    11:43 It reminded me of these verses:

    إِنَّ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ وَٱخْتِلَٰفِ ٱلَّيْلِ وَٱلنَّهَارِ لَءَايَٰتٍ لِّأُو۟لِى ٱلْأَلْبَٰبِ

    "Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of the night and the day are signs for those of understanding.

    ٱلَّذِينَ يَذْكُرُونَ ٱللَّهَ قِيَٰمًا وَقُعُودًا وَعَلَىٰ جُنُوبِهِمْ وَيَتَفَكَّرُونَ فِى خَلْقِ ٱلسَّمَٰوَٰتِ وَٱلْأَرْضِ رَبَّنَا مَا خَلَقْتَ هَٰذَا بَٰطِلًا سُبْحَٰنَكَ فَقِنَا عَذَابَ ٱلنَّارِ

    Who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], "Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire."

    Subhan'Allah this is exactly what led this man to Islam and what is captured so perfectly in these verses.

    H. Hart of USA who wrote "The 100 most influential persons in history" and placed Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) as number one, on the top of the list

    "My choice of Muhammad to lead the best of the world's most influential persons may surprise some readers and may be questioned by others, but he was the only man in history who was supremely successful on both the religious and secular levels.
    His complete biography has been authenticated and circulated amongst scholars around the world starting while he was still alive and continuing up until today. One of the first examples we quote from is from the Encyclopedia Britannica, as it confirms:

    (Regarding Muhammad) "… a mass of detail in the early sources shows that he was an honest and upright man who had gained the respect and loyalty of others who were likewise honest and upright men." [Vol. 12]
    Reverend R. Bosworth-Smith wrote in "Mohammed & Mohammedanism" in 1946:

    "Head of the state as well as the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was pope without the pope's claims, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a Right Divine, it was Mohammad, for he had all the power without instruments and without its support. He cared not for dressing of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life."
    George Bernard Shaw:

    "I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving the problems in a way that would bring the much needed peace and happiness. Europe is beginning to be enamored of the creed of Muhammad. In the next century it may go further in recognizing the utility of that creed in solving its problems." (A Collection of writing of some of the eminent scholars, 1935).
    Lamartine's tribute to the Prophet:

    "If greatness of purpose, smallness of means and astounding results are the three criteria of human genius, who could claim to compare any great man in modern history with Muhammad?" (Histoire de la Turquie, 1855).
    Gandhi:

    "I wanted to know the best of one who holds today undisputed sway over the hearts of millions of mankind… I became more than convinced that it was not the sword that won a place for Islam in those days in the scheme of life. It was the rigid simplicity, the utter self-effacement of the Prophet, the scrupulous regard for his pledges, his intense devotion to his friends and followers, his intrepidity, his fearlessness, his absolute trust in God and in his own mission. These and not the sword carried everything before them and surmounted every obstacle. When I closed the 2nd volume (of the Prophet's biography), I was sorry there was not more for me to read of the great life."
    English author Thomas Carlyle in his 'Heroes and Hero Worship', was simply amazed:

    "How one man single handedly, could weld warring tribes and wandering Bedouins into a most powerful and civilized nation in less than two decades."
    EWolfgang Goethe, perhaps the greatest European poet ever, wrote about Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. He said:

    "He is a prophet and not a poet and therefore his Quran is to be seen as Divine Law and not as a book of a human being, made for education or entertainment." [Noten und Abhandlungen zum Weststlichen Dvan, WA I, 7, 32]

    Muhammad, peace be upon him, was nothing more or less than a human being, but he was a man with a noble mission, which was to unite humanity on the worship of ONE and ONLY ONE GOD and to teach them the way to honest and upright living based on the commands of God. He always described himself as, 'A Servant and Messenger of God' and so indeed every action of his proclaimed to be

    Malcolm X's (Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz) Letter from Mecca
    THE PILGRIMAGE TO MAKKAH
    When he was in Makkah, Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz wrote a letter to his loyal assistants in Harlem… from his heart:

    "Never have I witnessed such sincere hospitality and overwhelming spirit of true brotherhood as is practiced by people of all colors and races here in this ancient Holy Land, the home of Abraham, Muhammad and all the other Prophets of the Holy Scriptures. For the past week, I have been utterly speechless and spellbound by the graciousness I see displayed all around me by people of all colors.

    "I have been blessed to visit the Holy City of Mecca, I have made my seven circuits around the Ka'ba, led by a young Mutawaf named Muhammad, I drank water from the well of the Zam Zam. I ran seven times back and forth between the hills of Mt. Al-Safa and Al Marwah. I have prayed in the ancient city of Mina, and I have prayed on Mt. Arafat."

    "There were tens of thousands of pilgrims, from all over the world. They were of all colors, from blue-eyed blondes to black-skinned Africans. But we were all participating in the same ritual, displaying a spirit of unity and brotherhood that my experiences in America had led me to believe never could exist between the white and non-white."

    "America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from its society the race problem. Throughout my travels in the Muslim world, I have met, talked to, and even eaten with people who in America would have been considered white – but the white attitude was removed from their minds by the religion of Islam. I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colors together, irrespective of their color."

    "You may be shocked by these words coming from me. But on this pilgrimage, what I have seen, and experienced, has forced me to rearrange much of my thought-patterns previously held, and to toss aside some of my previous conclusions. This was not too difficult for me. Despite my firm convictions, I have always been a man who tries to face facts, and to accept the reality of life as new experience and new knowledge unfolds it. I have always kept an open mind, which is necessary to the flexibility that must go hand in hand with every form of intelligent search for truth."

    "During the past eleven days here in the Muslim world, I have eaten from the same plate, drunk from the same glass, and slept on the same rug – while praying to the same God – with fellow Muslims, whose eyes were the bluest of blue, whose hair was the blondest of blond, and whose skin was the whitest of white. And in the words and in the deeds of the white Muslims, I felt the same sincerity that I felt among the black African Muslims of Nigeria, Sudan and Ghana."

    "We were truly all the same (brothers) – because their belief in one God had removed the white from their minds, the white from their behavior, and the white from their attitude."

    "I could see from this, that perhaps if white Americans could accept the Oneness of God, then perhaps, too, they could accept in reality the Oneness of Man – and cease to measure, and hinder, and harm others in terms of their 'differences' in color."

    "With racism plaguing America like an incurable cancer, the so-called 'Christian' white American heart should be more receptive to a proven solution to such a destructive problem. Perhaps it could be in time to save America from imminent disaster – the same destruction brought upon Germany by racism that eventually destroyed the Germans themselves."

    "Each hour here in the Holy Land enables me to have greater spiritual insights into what is happening in America between black and white. The American Negro never can be blamed for his racial animosities – he is only reacting to four hundred years of the conscious racism of the American whites. But as racism leads America up the suicide path, I do believe, from the experiences that I have had with them, that the whites of the younger generation, in the colleges and universities, will see the handwriting on the walls and many of them will turn to the spiritual path of truth – the only way left to America to ward off the disaster that racism inevitably must lead to."

    "Never have I been so highly honored. Never have I been made to feel more humble and unworthy. Who would believe the blessings that have been heaped upon an American Negro? A few nights ago, a man who would be called in America a white man, a United Nations diplomat, an ambassador, a companion of kings, gave me his hotel suite, his bed. Never would I have even thought of dreaming that I would ever be a recipient of such honors – honors that in America would be bestowed upon a King – not a Negro."

    "All praise is due to Allah, the Lord of all the Worlds.

    Sincerely,

    Al-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz (Malcolm X)

    (From the AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X with assistance from Alex Haley, the author of ROOTS)

    Malcolm X saw and experienced many positive things. Generosity and openheartedness were qualities which were impressed on him by the welcome which he received in many places. He saw brotherhood and the brotherhood of different races and this led him to disclaim racism and to say: "I am not a racist… In the past I permitted myself to be used… to make sweeping indictments of all white people, the entire white race, and these generalizations have caused injuries to some whites who perhaps did not deserve to be hurt. Because of the spiritual enlightenment which I was blessed to receive as the result of my recent pilgrimage to the Holy City of Mecca, I no longer subscribe to sweeping indictments of any one race. I am now striving to live the life of a true Sunni Muslim. I must repeat that I am not a racist nor do I subscribe to the tenets of racism. I can state in all sincerity that I wish nothing but freedom, justice and equality, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people."
