Back in Islam

William, Ex-Jew, USA

By William / 20 June 2013

My name is William, and I live in a large Midwestern city in the United States.  I am a typical American in many ways that are reflected in both my professional and personal lives.  Professionally, I am a supervisor with a major police department, and I have been in the military, both active duty and in the reserves for the majority of my adult life.  Personally, I live in the suburbs with my wife and child, drive a pickup truck and occasionally wear cowboy boots. 


Some Common Questions by Recent Converts

By / 1 June 2013

(1)  I have recently accepted Islam, do I need to change my name?

No, you don’t have to change your name unless its meaning is Islamically objectionable.  The Prophet did not order everyone who accepted Islam to change their names. Since Arabic names generally have meanings, he did change names with offensive or religiously objectionable meanings.  And if the name is not Islamically objectionable, then it is recommended to take a Muslim name but one does not have to.

Developing good habits to assist us in our everyday lives as a worshipper of the One God is easy. Below you will find a few guidelines to get you started.  They are habits that should InshaAllah become as familiar as breathing.


Why I Accepted Islam

By Michael Wolfe / 25 May 2013

After twenty-five years as a writer in America, I wanted something to soften my cynicism. I was searching for new terms by which to see.

The way one is raised establishes certain needs in this department.

From a pluralist background, I naturally placed great stress on the matters of racism and freedom. Then, in my early twenties, I had gone to live in Africa for three years.

It all began back in the late 90’s. I was a San Diego police officer and I had found myself at the desk. I had found myself in the middle of an internal affairs investigation. Of course these types of investigations seem to take forever; I had the fortune of working with another officer. After being around this for a few weeks, we had the opportunity to talk about various subjects. Never once speaking about Islam, although I knew this officer was Muslim. I knew this because we met during the month of Ramadan.So I saw firsthand the sacrifice’s he would make during the day. I often thought to myself, “how could he do this and why”.
