Yusuf, a Hindu from the UK, lost a beloved uncle in tragic circumstances at the young age of 15. This led him to contemplate the impermanence of life. He started reading about other faiths and their beliefs about death and the Hereafter.
His little understanding of Islam garnered through stories in the Reader’s Digest led him to believe Islam was violent, oppressive and an Arabian religion. But in the Quran, he found the opposite.
Still, he was a Brahmin Hindu; he could never be Muslim. However, that’s not what his heart was telling him. He converted to Islam at the age of 15 years old and found that he had finally come home. Watch on to learn more about Yusuf’s conversion to Islam.
