In fact, the very first Muslim teacher I found revealed to me a truth about reality that has helped me to understand Islam better and in turn transformed my life.
“Everything I have read about Islam thus far I have agreed with. It is a religion that answers every metaphysical and philosophical question I’ve ever had. It is a religion as moral as any other; and I do not believe it can be faulted for the acts of extremist followers or the acts of corrupt men in government seeking to oppress people.”

“I was very interested and wanted to know more about this religion as the sajda (prostration) was a strange position which I found funny. I watched this many times until I joined a congregation. My heart wanted to test the sajda and I wanted to see how I would feel. So, when I prayed and first bowed down to Allah, I felt peace, calm, clean, and out of this world. This was the moment of change. My heart became attached to the masjid as I felt an unexplainable peace and it even helped me to focus on my English work. I became addicted to the salah and I always wanted to go to the masjid not only for work, but just so I could experience the peace again.”
