Over the past 6+ months I’ve spent every single night researching/reading/watching -Youtube- New Muslim
“These photos were taken on the 5/4/2020, just hours before I took my Shahada (which is a declaration of faith aka converting) , feeling the happiest I’ve ever been and so at peace and content with life. After going through the most difficult year last year (being stalked, drinking & smoking & partying to ease the pain) and feeling like I was missing meaning/purpose I decided to look into Islam. The more I learned the more I fell in love with the religion and realised I already shared a lot of the beliefs and morals. Over the past 6+ months I’ve spent every single night researching/reading/watching videos about Islam and gaining as much knowledge as I can. I also realised how distorted the medias view on Islam is and how wrongly they portray Muslims and bc of that it made me scared to share what I was learning with the world, fearing I would be judged.
But I’m facing my fears and opening up l about something thats so important to me and close to my heart. I wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who’s helped me along my journey and made me feel so welcome and like I truely belong. Alhamdulillah I have found my place 🥺❤️” @kishama #muslimsoftheworld1
