My Iman

Don’t lose hope, you never know what tomorrow will bring.

Allah has perfect timing, never early, never late. It takes a little patience and a lot of faith but it is always worth the wait. Alhamdulillah, I converted to Islam sometime ago and I have had m ups and downs, just like any Muslim. The biggest challenge has been that with those tests my iman also fluctuates. However, every time I read something about Islam things started to make sense to me. The information I read felt like something was pulling me closer and closer, as if you are going on an airplane somewhere far away and you are almost at the end of the trip and you are about to get off. I felt like I was being pulled towards that plane, not getting off, but jumping on.

Today, I strive to spread the message but it is not simple as not everyone is meant to accept Islam in their hearts. It is like comparing it to today’s public new broadcasts, there is actually so many opinions and facts that sometimes are not very favorable or well received. On the other hand, my iman is the only area in my life that I can hold steadfast to as I continue to strive in personal growth as a Muslim.

Islam, I believe, has saved me from the life I would have taken. Allah is so merciful and a lot of times we take this for granted. We need to realize that Allah is always with us no matter where we go and is so gracious!

I hope you too can get others to realize the beauty of Islam and how much happier they would be.
