This Catholic Girl’s Inspiring Story of Converting to Islam is Making Headlines all over the World

Narrated Abu Sa‘îd Al-Khudri Allah’s Messenger said, “If a person embraces (converts to) Islam sincerely, then Allah shall forgive all his past sins, and after that starts the settlement of accounts: the reward of his good deeds will be ten times to seven hundred times for each good deed, and an evil deed will be recorded as it is unless Allah forgives it.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol.1, Hadith No. 40A).

Being born in a Catholic household and practicing the very religion for years, Allah blessed her in His own way. For 3 years, she was studying the religion of peace, Islam. It takes courage to go against what you preached your entire life. On the other hand, blessed are those who see through the light and choose the right path.
