A US Journalist Embraces Islam -Michael Wolfe

From Atheism to Islam

Salam ‘aleykoum, I’m sorry if it’s a long story, but it’s a process that took years, for me anyway. I grew up in a atheistic family. In fact my family hated religion (in particular Catholicism). I remember my mother told me that we she was a child it was the...

But...

An American Jew Became a Muslim -Josh Hasan

I did not have to be a Muslim. Maybe. I could have been a Hindu, worshipping 14,321 gods and goddesses, such as a goddess for my neighbor’s dog, another for the moon, and yet another for Evander Holyfield’s lost ear. I would be worshiping all these counterfeit “gods,” and I...
