The website has been fortunate to be blessed with New Muslim brothers and sisters who have shared with the project some of their most personal, emotional, and private experiences of life before, during and post conversion to the Islamic faith. It is hoped that InshaAllah their experiences can benefit others thinking about accepting Islam as their guiding faith and for those who have already converted to an Islamic way of life.

Hamza (Andy)

I have been asked to write a few words about my journey to Islam so will try and make it brief. Ultimately however it was purely by the decree of Allah (swt) and His generosity; nothing that I have done deserves such a blessing.

Maliha

Assalamulaykum, my name is Maliha (pronounced mer-lee-her), and I'm 17 and a full time 6th form student studying Religious Studies, English Language, Health and Social care and Sociology. I've been a Muslim for 3 and half years now, and reverted when I was 13 after a lot of research. I was loosely brought up a Christian, and always believed in God, but when I started high school in year 7, the way I was being taught about Jesus (peace be upon him), just didn't make sense to me. After asking a lot of questions to various people and doing my own research trying to get back in touch with Christianity...
