American sister Melissa’s journey to Islam
(From Darkness to the Light)
Assalamalaikum, My Name is Melissa….
I used to be a new apostolic christian.
I had a hectic life of drinking alot and having sex with different men.I have 3 children from 3 different men.I was married to the 1 but he never worked, drinking alcohol alot and abused me in front of my children.I have a very good friend who use to give me a lift to work and use to talk about Allah and Islam. Every morning I listened but I wasnt really that interested until the day that he spoke about Allah and there was tears in his eyes…I was so moved about this grown man of 40 yrs that talks about his religion sp passionately. I started getting more interested and in January 2016 I embraced Islam. I go every week to one-on-one classes with the Imam who is teaching me step by step from the history and all I need to know in our daily lives.
I have never regretted my decision and hope other non muslims will open their eyes as well in sha Allah Ameen.
Islam is the only true way of live.Alhamdullilah.
