Hey everyone my name is Jessica and i am a hispanic-american from laredo,Texas
I am a convert from christianity to Islam.. i took my shahada almost a year ago ( Dec 29 ) I was formerly a pentecostal / fundamentalist christian.. and based with my experience with christianity, which was a mixture of bitter-sweet memories lol.... I eventually decided to convert to Islam because i couldnt handle the so many inconsistencies and confusion in the doctrine of the trinity among other things any longer !!! I never really viewed Jesus as God himself, but just his son.. and I payed attention to how he had his relationship with God... thats what i loved the most about the New Testament.. figuring out how Jesus spoke and communicated with God.. and this sentiment was shattered when I was later taught that Jesus was God.. i was like wtf ? How ? I thought reincarnation was like a hindu thing.. and so therefore "haram" by christian standards LOL So I kept this behind me for many years until I was 17 and decided to research on different religions.. mostly just Catholicism , Orthodox, Jehova Witnesses.. Judaism and Islam.... Islam.. being the most philosophical and profound of them all
So then at age 18 i became "sunni" muslim
Sunni.......... only because i didnt wanted to be confuse with Shia LOL I was decieved by so many sunnis why not to like Shia3a.. and now I see their hypocrisy !! First of all, when muslims first started talking to me about islam... they never spoke about Hadiths.. just Quran... it wasnt until months later after my conversion that i heard about them...
At first, it was nice reading them.. all they talked about was how the prophet prayed, gave charity, his advice to the muslims on good deeds, how to achieve good deeds.. rewards ect... BUT it wasnt too long before i encountered the bad hadiths
this really made me nervous.. even more so when I was tricked to believe that the Quran sanctioned this hadiths..
Reading the Quran was the ultimate salvation for me... it became my passion to learn more and more about Allah's book.. in no other book ( Tawrah / Injeel ) is Allah exalted and glorified than in the Quran...
However, it was not easy reading 4:34 among other strange verses that did not seem to add up.... but some how, i left that behind me... and also.. i put aside the bad hadiths for a while and continued my islamic way of life.... ( exactly how i ignored the inconsistencies in christianity i did the same with Islam )
It was not until I really began to reflect upon the "Muslim " World.. and how their actions and their ideologies were far from being anything quranic or islamic... I also read and heard testimonies about ex muslims becoming atheists or christian..
And then it hit me ! Something is definitely wrong with Islam ! LOL
I then discovered that the hadiths were not written until 100 to 200 and even till 400 years after Muhammed's (sa) death !!!
and i was like... o_O so then how can people possible take these things seriously !!!
Finally, after visiting some quran alone sites... i decided to take my faith in islam seriously and follow only and believe only Quran
Prophet Muhammed would be so proud of me and of all quran alone muslims if he were here !!!
