“The love for Imam Ali (A.S.) and Imam Husain (A.S.) was the most important motivation for me to convert to Islam. My husband is Muslim and he left me free to choose my religion, so that I could select the best religion of my choice” the newly-Muslim lady said, who has a special love for Imam Husain (A.S.).
“My wife’s family was very cordial in this regard and showed me the beautiful manifestations of Islam: respect, generosity, peace, friendship, justice, and being a non-compulsory religion were the most beautiful features through which I became fascinated to this divine religion” Jasmine continued.
“Today, European countries have a clear opposition to Islam and Muslims, and it is very clear that the thoughts and intellectual insights of this religion are the main reason for the invasion and attack of the enemies” the newly-Muslim lady reiterated.
