I was telling an American friend that I am Muslim. He said "I thought that Muslims are black, poor, or uneducated!". This is the perception that the Western Media presents to the people. So, please examine this impressive list of converts to Islam, and you be the Judge!
Why are Christian priests and missionaries embracing Islam ? ! You can find many converts from Christianity to Islam there, as well as Christians who are learning more about Islam. If you are a former Christian priest or missionary who has embraced Islam, please Contact Us.
Below a collection of converts' stories which are enlightening, heart-warming and inspiring in equal measure. These new Muslims come from a variety of backgrounds. They include intellectuals, scientists, priests, Rabbis, missionaries, and artists, young and old, famous and laypersons, from around the globe. Most of these converts are former Christians or from a Christian background. These testimonies only represent a drop in the ocean however, since every day hundreds of people convert to Islam all around the world.
Amongst the most powerful and thought-provoking testimonies are those of former Christian priests and missionaries who have discovered the one true religion. This is a tremendous challenge to Christian missionaries. Instead of wasting $6.8 billion each year trying to convert poor and sick Muslims, they should concentrate their efforts on understanding Islam!
