My Journey to Islam :: Revert Story

Al-Anaam, Chapter #6, Verse #125-126:

125 Those whom Allah (in His plan) willeth to guide,- He openeth their breast to Islam; those whom He willeth to leave straying,- He maketh their breast close and constricted, as if they had to climb up to the skies: thus doth Allah (heap) the penalty on those who refuse to believe.

126 This is the way of thy Lord, leading straight: We have detailed the signs for those who receive admonition.

My old name  “Glynda Lynne”. I was born into a family with 5 generations in the United States Marine Corps on the military base of Camp Lejuene, North Carolina. When I was 4 years old, my step-father decided to move my Mom, me and my half-brother to Atlanta, Georgia to be closer to his mom and dad.

From there, I was raised by my step-grandparents ad my step-father in a predominantly Southern Baptist household. I was however, taught Roman Catholicism because my mother’s family (Native American and Italian) are practicing Roman Catholics. So besides the two VERY different religious beliefs going on at the same time in my head, my grandfather tells me that he is an atheist because he thinks that people should do things on their own without any help. To seek help, even from a God is a sign of weakness.

My step-grandmother however, was a practicing Southern Baptist and took me and my half-brother with her to church every Sunday. The funny thing was, after getting out of church I would expect myself to feel better or have more peace OR SOMETHING DIFFERENT LOL! But always I would still have that empty, depressed feeling inside of me. Even after when I got older and started attending Mass (Catholic service) I STILL had a feeling like something was missing from my life and could not figure out what it was.

Well, that depressed, empty feeling went on inside of me until a little bit of light came into my life when I was in college at 18 years old. In my advanced English class, we were assigned to do an essay on compare and contrast between any two subjects we wanted. For some reason, (later on I found out it was the will of ALLAH SWT Alhamduellah ^_^)

I chose Sunni Muslim and Shia’a Muslim. Researching this essay almost was an introduction to Islam to me, because up until this point I did not have ANY knowledge about anything to do with Islam. I learn a lot of the various differences between the two sects: like 90% of Muslims are Sunni, most Shia’a are in Iran and how the split between the two occurred. I did not really formulate an opinion on either the Sunni or Shia’a, I was just comparing the differences between the two.

Later on Alhamduellah, I chose Sunni Muslim because it just made more sense to me.

Another thing that happened from this essay (besides the intro to Islam) was that I began to have a lot of questions on Islam and what the Qur’an teaches and just the basic beliefs! Unfortunately though, two weeks after the completion of my essay, September 11th, 2001 happened and then the tremendous backlash against Islam began shortly thereafter. People everywhere, from the news to the streets, were saying really bad things about Islam. Then I would have to deal with some of that backlash for asking questions or researching on Islam. I was unfortunately; very confused at that time thinking maybe I was not doing the right thing on researching Islam because of the hateful things being said to me. So I just went along with my current belief system (Catholic) in an effort to please the people around me and maybe make them leave me alone. That attitude goes back to my childhood because if I did not do as I was told, bad things would happen. BUT I never said one bad word against any Muslim or Islam because I always felt that if I did not know anything for sure 100%, I should not speak about it. But inside of me I just KNEW that something better than what I had as far as the religious belief system was there in Islam. I just did not know what it was exactly.

So after dealing with some of the negative backlash from researching Islam, I became very scared to question too much. And the following years after that were depressing empty years (like my childhood) that always left me with the feeling that something was missing. In an attempt to sort things out and fill this emptiness inside of me, I got married to a guy that later turned out to be an abuser, and from there I needed to concentrate on finding a way out for me and my baby girl.

After my divorce from my abusive husband in 2010, Alhamduellah, I had a little bit more time to do some more research on Islam after my daughter (my angel of joy) went to bed. So I began liking the various Islamic pages on facebook and doing more research into Islam that way. About 90% of what I found, Alhamduellah, showed me the true beauty representing the REAL nature of Islam and was VERY beneficial to increasing my Iman (faith) and Aqeeda (Islamic Knowledge) a little at a time. And STILL, some of the same people came back to me telling me the same wrong thing before about Islam and how I must be soooo stupid for wanting to study a religion like Islam. The only difference was that I became stronger and a better women and told them to leave me alone and I was not listening anymore to their LIES. Then I started to ask questions again when I stopped caring how people treated me.

Shortly after that, I had a major epiphany. The epiphany happened when I came to realize that I was VERY wrong on saying that God had a SON. When I was able to stop believing that, it was like a door opened for me to TRULY understand Islam and then everything made so much more sense to me. It was at that point when I knew for sure I want to become a Muslim. Because for sure NOTHING that I have every experienced was this peaceful and loving as Islam truly is!!!

Soon after knowing EXACTLY what I wanted to do, I started performing my 5 daily prayers and a month after that I began to wear my Hijab!!! ^_^ and about 3 or 4 months later, I said my Shahada in Egypt ~SUBHANAALLAH!!!!!!!!

NOTHING I have ever done or studied gave me the peace I have been searching for my WHOLE LIFE! InshaALLAH I will always have this inner peace ^_^!!!!!!!!!!! AND I have never had the feeling of strength to be able to deal with everything I have been through, happening to me now and what continues to happen as well!!!


This sister is the same sister Who need help in Huston.

Alsalam Alykom,

Wish you a great day.

My wife Kuiyan Dai # +97433876795 Chinese Muslim declared Islam in November 2010 with your support in Fanar & was named Fatma aqs per attached Islam declaration from court.

We were working in Ezdan hotel & Suites & we were married in Qatar family court as per attached.

Eventually she was terminated in March 2011 after our marriage for two times within one month with no specific reason from the management & I had to send her to china in April until I can change her sponsorship to me, but unluckily it was rejected from immigration & I had to resign & go back to Egypt to resolve the situation & I flew her to Egypt in July 2011 & processed her residency for one year & started exploring our options in Qatar & UAE & Egypt to be able to support our families & marriage.

We stayed in Alexandria , Egypt until 19 October 2011 when I had to fly to Dubai for an interview & she flew to Doha as she told me had some Chinese connections that can help her find a job as Ezdan did not cancel her residency which expired already on 24 December 2011.

On 21 November 2011 I flew to Doha for an interview & also to check on her & help her change her sponsor to a Chinese restaurant Active -X through a Chinese man Zinga # +97433173626 & I finalized the paper work including NOC with Ezdan management for her, however the Chinese man is delaying the process until today & is asking her for too much money.

I also have visited her accommodation as she is staying with other Chinese ladies that are working in bars & the apartment is rented for her house boss nick name Linda # +97466709215 located behind Holiday Villa Hotel see location map link ( ).

She stopped praying & lost faith due to her termination from Ezdan with no obvious reason except that she turned Muslim & is married to an Egyptian Muslim & told me after I left Doha on SKYPE that the Chinese ladies are trying hard with all dirty ways to make her work in hotels bars with the nick name of Lucy after my visit & they knew that we are married & she is Muslim.

If I have a second chance to fly in to pull her out I would do that without any hesitation or second thoughts.

I am striving to get a job in Qatar to get her back & take care of her.

You are one of the great people that I have met in Qatar during her Islam deceleration as I asked support from other Ezdan management colleagues to help me & her to avoid any misleading that results in quitting Islam or lead her to do something that Allah forbids & lose her faith unluckily until to-date.

I really do not know what to do except praying to Allah & Doaa to Allah to save my wife from her existing situation & I blame myself for letting her go back to Doha alone.

Please I prayed to Allah yesterday to bless her & save her from shaytan & was inspired to contact you for your support in whatever Allah would inspire you to support us.

If you need any further information or physical assistance from my side I will be anxious to do whatever it takes to support her, keep her & waive any demons thoughts that are surrounding her.
