- please introduce yourself.
My name is Hamida Abdollahi Mehr. After obtaining my diploma, I entered Iranshahr seminary.
- Although your parents are Sunnis, what made you become a Shia?
One of the most important factors that made me become a Shia was participating in the mourning gatherings of Imam Hussain (peace be upon him), which gradually made me interested in the family of Ahl al-Bayt (peace be upon them).
- What was the first reaction of your parents to becoming a Shiite?
At first, they were against it, but after they realized that I was steadfast in this way, they stopped opposing it.
At the beginning of my conversion to Shia, they did not allow me to go to the mosque. But I used to go to the mosque secretly with my cousin.
(I have 3 uncles, one of them is Shia and his children are also Shia. Also, my grandmother is Shia).
