    He told me that what I have dreamed about was the Holy Qu'ran and that Allah (SWT) was sending me a message. I asked him if he could get me a Qu'ran in English so I might understand what I was reading. A few weeks later a young girl who also worked in my company and is also a Muslima gave me a Qu'ran in English. I was very eager to start reading this book. So when I started reading the Holy Qu'ran,you know what happened? I did not fall asleep. I read till very late in the night. And when I finally decided to go to bed. I had the best sleep I have ever had in my life. When I finished reading the Holy Qu'ran I had this feeling that I want to become a Muslim as soon as possible before it was too late. I had to wait about a week before a co-worker had time to take me to a Mosque. We went there on a Friday (Jumua') He had told me the day before to take a shower and wash myself from head to toe. To make sure I was very clean,which I did. On that day when we were in the Mosque, he showed me how to do Wuthu. For everypart that I washed with water I felt even more clean than I already was. After we had finished we went into a room were the Imam and two witnesses were waiting for us. The Imam started reciting in Arabic and I felt captured my the words that he was reciting. I could not move and I did not want to move. It was a very good feeling that I had.

    Assalym alikum, the most lovely thing about reading Quran is that it breathes life into your soul. There nothing can touch it but god. The first time I read the Quran I was captured by the beautiful words, and opened a door inside my heart to see the beauty in an unkind world. It allowed me to view the world how Allah created it in purity. I felt I missed a whole life time of beauty, but ahamdillah I know it now and will not lose it. Peace upon you both and to your families.
