Alhamdulilah, so happy that today is the anniversary of the best day of my entire life: the day I took my shahada. Every year, I can't help but reflect on the conversation I accidentally overheard the day I took my shahada in which two individuals at the masjid had bets on how long I would be Muslim for.
To them, I was just another girl going through a "Muslim phase" as they had seen in others before.
I was OBVIOUSLY just converting for a guy. Or because I was bored.
So proud every year that I have only fallen more in love with Islam.
The biggest Mercy in my entire life was that Allah (swt) chose me to be Muslim, and there was no greater blessing I have ever experienced.
The journey has not been easy - and still I am challenged every day. But, I am proud to say that I am growing and evolving with the changes in my life, and I am so blessed to have the guidance and support of Islam in order to do so.
Happy Shahada Anniversary to me! <3
Please keep me in your du'aa.
Love all of you
