You know, one day I finally had enough. I couldn't take it anymore. And so I went and opened up my Bible. And it was in the morning and I was sober that morning I had been drinking or nothing yet. And I opened it up and it was the part where Jesus peace be upon him, he prostrated in the garden where he fell on his face. And he was praying and begging to the Creator, to not take this cup from him, you know, and so on and so forth. And I told myself, I said, You know what, it was like a hit me really clearly. I was like Jesus, he fell on his face, he prostrated like the Muslims do. And I remembered a couple of weeks before I listened to the preacher, because we don't have any Muslims

00:00:39--> 00:01:11

where I'm from, I had never met a single Muslim to this point in my life, and I'm 2026 years old or so. And he brings up randomly Muslims one day, because we're out in, you know, in the country. And he's like, you know, don't, don't do like the Muslims do, and never humiliate yourself and put your face on the ground. He's like, we're Christians, we get on our knees and we ask God, we don't put our face in the dirt. And that was a couple of weeks before. And so this that day, when I had finally just, you know, gave up and I was like, You know what, God, I don't know what the truth is. I've been looking in the Hindu scriptures. I've been looking at Christianity throughout all these

00:01:11--> 00:01:48

sects and all this other stuff. And I was like, I can't find it. And when I opened up and I saw Jesus prostrating there in the Bible, I said, How dare he say, humiliate, because, you know, even though I don't worship Jesus, he's my, you know, my role model. And he said, humiliate, I would understand if he said, humble yourself, but he said, humiliated. So I had this like, feeling of kind of rebellion, like, you know, not to Jesus or to God, but to the pastor. I said, How dare you. So I was like, You know what, I'm gonna do what Jesus did, I'm gonna put my head on the ground, I'm gonna ask God to guide me. And so I did. And when it happened, everything was clear. I can't explain it to

00:01:48--> 00:02:30

you, Edie, except that there was no doubt in my mind that God was one. But we call you a pina had certainty. And something was telling me to follow Muhammad for the rest of my life. And so I told myself, if this was real, you know, I got up. And I said, if this is real, I gotta find out about it. So I actually had a Koran on my shelf. This is one of the books I haven't read. And so I'm gonna actually read it. And as soon as I opened up the book, Edie, that first page I started reading, I could not stop crying, you know, I read from factor hat. And then I would go to open up to another part. And every single word that I read, even though as an English translation resonated with me of

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

the Quran,

00:02:32--> 00:03:02

I couldn't stop. I was like a hunger, there was unsatiable I just I kept reading and reading then I would go online and watch YouTube videos like what is this that I found, I cannot believe this, who is this prophet muhammad sallallahu it was set on peace be upon him. And I was just over the moon I was like, I found it, I realized was worthy of worship, except for the uncreated Creator of the heavens in the earth. As soon as the words left my mouth,

00:03:03--> 00:03:40

Edie, I don't know how to describe it to you, everything like when, when whites like I had this experience that I was just surrounded with, with lights, and it was like washing me from the inside out. And the Prophet Muhammad, he talks to us about how whenever a person accepts Islam, that that all of their sins are completely forgiven from what they did before. But this was almost like a, you know, a manifestation of that, you know, had goosebumps and this euphoria that was better than any thing I've ever drank or taken or done before in my entire life. That feeling was better than the most blissful moment times, like a million and and I couldn't stop crying and it was crazy. Everyone

00:03:40--> 00:04:15

I've been through a lot of Chahat is but everyone in the whole audience, all of the other brothers and whatnot, every we're all crying together and come out and Mackey's crying, and I knew in my heart after I said, the testimony of faith, which is I testify that there is no God worthy of worship, except for Allah, The God, the One True God alone. And I testify that Muhammad is the Messenger of God, the ultimate statement ever made my life and so, you know, I live by that statement. Now. If you I cannot leave without giving you a gift.
