Hola, gratulations Thank you, man. You feel so great. Um, Eddie, your ad is Sir Eddie ad? Pretty close. Yeah. So tell me how was it? What was it that just in a few words, what was it that led you to really contemplating or thinking about the purpose of life that led you actually from all the different religions? You chose Islam? Man, to be honest, I was a born Catholic. I was, I was born into a Catholic family. So
just growing up, I wasn't really understanding what I was paying to, you know, there was telling me there was three gods, you know, I wasn't really sure what I was doing. So, you know, growing up, I was just doing my research, just myself. I had a couple friends who used to take the religion super serious. But, you know, I was a Catholic, so I didn't really see like that. So, after I got into it, after I got into it and stuff, you know, I just, I just thought that it was a reason for me to be here. You know, cuz it was just, it was just out of nowhere, that I was just like, you know, what, I want to I want to practice the Islamic religion. I don't know where I just came here. And like I
said, like, I was like, it was like a dream. Literally, like a dream. I just came to my head just came to my head of becoming a muslim.

I feel great and and I'll feel like they will feel happy for me to do that. So your background is from the Dominican Republic Yes, sir. There's a lot of Spanish people from all parts of Latin community Spanish community that we're seeing as the influx of Hispanics coming to Islam for the exactly the same reason you know, they are having a hard time identify with the Trinity Jesus being God part of a tree but when it comes to Islam to pure monotheism, you really connect with their heart oneness the pure oneness of the loves it was that something that really captivated you Yes. And I want to be able to you know
you know prayed prayed some pray to my god you know prayed so my God only not just you know, you know how they used to say Jesus first and Jesus take the words and and this you know, this Yeah, I want to I want to be directly towards him, you know, pray to him so he can hear me how I really feel no confession box no going to a priest to forgive your sins just to the One God Almighty Elsa directly. This is what I'm concerned knows. We we always his kids, we always, uh, you know, daughters and sons. So why why wouldn't we be able to pray to Him, you know, directly sound like to have you not be metaphoric. Yes. But we know now you learn coming to Islam. That's the beautiful
thing when you, for instance, you learned that God doesn't have children, daughters, sons. He's nothing like his creation.

You know, I didn't get laws. Allah guided me here. You know, somebody paid you cursed you for years investigating this using your mind praying directly to God Almighty. So you did your homework and you concluded that indeed, this is the way of life from the Creator of the heavens on Earth. Yes, sir. And the way the wages how, you know, the Muslim community just, you know, maneuver the way they they take the religion so serious and in how they always tried to do, like, good, like
