"...This day have I perfected your religion for you, completed My favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islam as your religion..." Surah Al Ma'idah 5:3On December 31, 1997 a gift was sent, my very first Holy Qur'an. A meaningful blessing, upon making a sincere request and appointment.
Reading this book it re-opened the gates of wisdom, I then began to discipline those wild desires, understanding diversity and many other re-iterations became my personal development. A Successful treatment of needed nourishment was needed that would revive, renew and restore an ignored dignity. Now challenging or let's say expanding my Episcopal faith, changing my acolyte to duties into new media and community service. Also started answering many obvious questions, an acolyte needed answered...
- Who is Muhammad (PBUH) and why is he among the family of Abraham
- You mean all the Prophets are fraternally related
- The Qur'an mentions Jesus Son of Mary's story and a chapter (surah) is named after Mary
- What, I gotta give up bacon! No pepperoni pizza either, I don't know...smh
"Allah does not change a people's lot unless they change what is in their hearts." Surah Ar-Ra'd 13:11#IamMuslim, mainly because this path was written for me, written during the first 120 days in my mother's womb. On July 3, 1998 I reverted via pronouncing a special declaration of faith. Subsequently thinking, maybe our reversion to Al Islam answer the prayers (dua) of African Muslims brought to the United States for slavery.
Today being Muslim is a celebration of a decent way of life (deen), having identity, and an unique culture. Walking this path learning means of leadership for family, community, and personal interests; totally narrates, Why am I a Muslim - Thank you Allah!
