Very few converts accept Islam straight away. The rest go through a spiritual turbulence as they come to terms with the big decision that lies ahead. If that describes you, then you’ll be comforted to know that you’re not alone.
Watch this short interview with Ala, a Muslim convert, in which she talks about her journey to embracing Islam and how embracing Islam brought happiness to her life. She’s from Ukraine and embraced Islam when she was 28.
Self-development begins where your comfort zone ends. And true self-development begins by embracing truth when it comes your way. We hope that this convert to Islam has inspired you to push forward in your journey, even if it’s just an inch.
