He was doing a Podcast interview with The Times, when he didn’t shy away from talking about his faith. He shared about how Islam changed him for the better, how it made him see the importance of life.
“It was a good change in my life because I wasn’t born a Muslim, even if my mum was. I just grew up like that, respect for everyone. I prayed once with my friends and I felt something different. I felt really good. “
He has many Muslim friends and they would have discussions regarding life and religion. He would be questioning things, which later leads him to do research on Islam. It intrigued him to try to perform the solah (prayer).
“Since that day I just carried on. You have to pray five times a day, that’s one of the pillars of Islam. It’s something that you do. The meaning of why you do it? : you ask forgiveness and be thankful for everything you have, like my health and everything. “
May Allah grant him strength to continue his faith in Islam.
