Latinos Converting To Islam (Documentary)

What so-called religions that promise ‘salvation’ can truly forget is the SAVING. What the dude says in here about why he converted to Islam, how it truly SAVED him… He was not speaking of a ‘magical’ event or a sudden ‘newness’ feeling (set to orchestral music or something). Rather, he was speaking of Islam SAVING his life in an UNDERSTANDABLE way that brought joy to his soul and meaning to his life. ‘Survival mode’ to a ‘revival’ by way of the Quran.

Meet A Muslim (Video)

And I know you’ll get this… I got a li’l choked up right from the start of this… When the lady said, “I am a human. I am a mom.”

Man. My mom is my HEART! Okay…

Yes, this “Meet A Muslim” is all that you’d expect. You probably know and celebrate some or all this in yourselves and in/with your Muslim friends and associates. But maybe play this within earshot of folks who may not ‘get it’ like you do. This is bound to soften a heart and/or open an eye or three. Great short video!
