A couple of weeks ago today, I decided to take the Shahadah (Confession of a Muslim). Why you may ask? I grew up in a Christian home. I was a Sunday school teacher, choir member, helped in the bus ministry, volunteered at a Christian coffee house, and was a helper in the library. Yet, whenever I had questions about the doctrine, I was always told, "just believe" instead of getting an answer. For years I struggled with the religion. Some of the things that Christians believe just didn't make sense to me or there were many contradictions. Lately, I have been doing some more investigations and found that Islam seems right for me. So far, I have been focusing on getting the prayers right. Islam is not just a religion but a way of life.
