I was raised up as a Christian because that was the religion my family was brought up on. I was introduced to Islam when I was 12 years old and I'm presently 39 years old now; even though I was raised in Christianity, I have always ended up returning to Islam. When I joined the military in 1979 I again was introduced to Islam and started learning more about Islam. I tried to join the Nation of Islam but found that I would not be accepted because my wife was German and also I was in the military, but the sad fact is that the Nation of Islam never even asked me whether my wife was black or if I was in the Army, so I quit trying to join. I found this information out through an individual who once was a member of the Nation of Islam. I took Shahada here in Germany back in 1992 and it was the most beautiful thing that I have ever been a part of and to see people of all races and nationalities coming together for the worshipping of ALLAH (SWT), after seeing videos of Muslims making their pilgrimage to MECCA and prostrating themselves in prayer to the One and Only TRUE GOD (ALLAH) (SWT), it brings joy to my heart knowing that I have finally realised that Islam is the Right Religion for me. I thank you all for allowing me to tell my story and may ALLAH guide me on the path of becoming a righteous Muslim. When you take the Bible and then read The Holy Quran the truth that is written in the Quran will truly open your eyes to the true words of ALLAH and the real history of JESUS (PBUH) and the messenger and servant MUHAMMAD (PBUH).
