and Allah said "And proclaim the pilgramage among men; they will come to thee on foot and on every kind of camel. Lean on account of Journeys through deep and distant mountain highways" Surah 22 ~ Al Hajj Part 27

Every person has a story to tell... more often than not, people who usually make a difference to any aspect of someone else's life remain hidden and unpraised. Togeather by reading and understanding their stories we are able to appreciate them in the first instanc as people and than their actions that is usually wrought in pain, tears and heartache. Below is an Index and link of such people and their stories. Allahuakbar! They deserve all of Allah's jazah and baraka. We specially urge all Muslims to share both time and kindness with all Muslim brothers and sisters that have embraced Islam through either conversion or reversion.

We as Muslims, who were born in Islam are mostly oblivious to the fact that at the point of taking Shahada, that person's life is going to change in every manner. On the positive side Allah subhanatallah and his Ummah are going to craddle them and lead them on the path of truth and righteoness. On the negative side, they are most likely going to loose that is familar to them like family, friends and colleagues.

Therefore, this is why we ask you as good muslims to lend our new muslim brothers and sisters all the possible support you can master for Allah will reward you with all his Ajr. Inshallah.

P.S. We have been asked to include some well known Islamic Scholars who embraced Islam. At this late stage we have emailed the brothers in questions and will insert the links as soon as they are received inshallah.

Having embarked on this journey together on a personal note the following conversation took place between a Asian Muslim gentleman, my wife and myself. I have added this so that people can realise the ignorance that exists in this educated world and how it is very important for us all to unite in to a single family and remove such attitudes:

Asian gentleman seeing my wife in hijab said " You can not be a muslim!"

"Why not?" asked my wife

"Because you are white, in it!" was the prompt and uncaring answer

"What makes you a Muslim then? when you are obviously not an Arab?" I asked smiling. A look of confusion appeared on his face

"Subhanallah, surely you know brother that Islam originates from Saudi Arabia and the Arabs" I said

"I ain't your brother and we are the only real Muslims in it", with that he walked away leaving two some what bemused Muslims! Allahuakbar.

This is the kind of ignorance that needs to be dispeled before Islam can become the single family that Alaah subhanatallah sent all his prophets to guide people in to.
