Hameedullah,
For the sister to get out of the house without anything she coult take with her, except the books and the effort... hmmmm wow...
I wish I could do that to some people who think we need them because of the money or the wealth...
The sister must be very strong to go thru inconveniences like that for Islam...  May Allah bless her and the brother, and all of us with rahmat and rahman...
InsyaAllah
Regards
Mat

Assalamua alykum wa rahamtullah,
Allahu akbar! What a nice reversion story. It is incredible what one does when there is Tawhid in the heart. It is nice to read how you acknowledged these were test from Allah (SWT).
I understand what it is to come from kufr to Islam. I personally reverted about five years ago. I was a catholic, so I understand the questions you had regarding idols and how inconceivable it becomes as one grows up to understand why people worship idols rather than Allah (SWT).
I come from a very Catholic family with priest, nuns, bishops even a "saint" so growing up I decided to become a priest as many of my uncles and men and women generations before me. In this journey, where I became more and more religious, I too started to ask more and more questions. The first was the one I had since I was a child "why do we woship three gods, but say we worship one?", "if Jesus was a god, how could he pray to God?" "how could he have a mother?" "how could god sleep, rest and how he could die?" etc...etc.. these and many more questions led me to seek for tawhid.
Alhamdulillah, in my fist year in college I had an assignment on architectural history; I decided to research the dome of the rock, since my sister had done a report on it and I also became interested in this structure. There is where I read about Muhammad, and his journey to heaven and about the Qur’an. I went to look for a Qur’an and found some I read and read, especially about what I had questions on; and decided to take home an English translation. I continued reading and asking.
As time passed I decided to become Muslim, but wanted to make sure this wa a religion where worship was only to Allah, so it took me about a year to actually take the courage to say shahada. So I went to my local MSA, since I could not get the courage to enter a mosque; I thought they would think “what is this Mexican doing here?” I ended up going to an MSA meeting, there I met a brother who asked me if I was Muslim, I said yes; he asked me then if I had said shahada, and I said no; I told him I would meet him in the masjid on the fist day of Ramadhan.
That day was the happiest day ever, the day I declared “ash-hadu an laa illaha illa Allah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadar rasulullah”. That day wa the day I truly undertood what it meant to be happy.
Problems follow with my family, especially with my mom, who did not understand why I went into a religion of “terrorist and bad people”, and when I decided to grow my beard she only saw it as an impediment for my professional growth. Subhanallah as time went on she understood how important Islam was in my life and now she has no problem with me.

SubhanAllah.  Your story makes me feel humble and ashamed of the "trials" I have encountered....which is nothing compared to yours.

May Allah bless you and your brother in this life and the next (and ALL of us), and may HE guide our families to the straight path, insha Allah.
