American professor converts to Shia Islam, visits Imam Ali holy shrine
The coordinator between Muslims and Christians in Senegal, the American professor Maria Lifini, had the honor of visiting the Holy Shrine of Imam Ali (PBUH). The employees of the Public Relations Department welcomed and accompanied her.
“I knew Muslims’ life-styles and conduct through communicating with them in Michigan, Lebanon, and Senegal. Because of what I saw and experienced with them, I converted to Islam,” she stated in a press statement to the Media Center of the Holy Shrine.
“I came to know the wisdom, piety, and high morals of Imam Ali (PBUH) better through visiting his holy shrine.”
In the conclusion of her visit, the shrine presented her English publications of those published by the holy shrine.
