Islam – One Teenager’s Journey to Faith

Divide & Conquer: The Illuminati bankers foster hostility between Muslims and Christians.
They demolished the World Trade Center and blamed Muslims.
Both these religions should be measured by the positive effect they have
on their adherent’s lives. Judging by Kyle Williamson, Islam as well as Christianity
saves lives in a world saturated with satanic cues.

I endorse this comment from Asim: “It would be good if Christians and Muslims came together as one united front rather than continue bickering over differences. Only then will we be able to defeat the Illuminati apparatus a lot sooner!!!!!”

In today’s world. I find the need for a good religion becoming increasingly important.

At age 13, after growing up in several Christian denominations, I became disillusioned with the Christianity that my parents had brought me up in and with religion in general.

Mostly due to fact that I increasingly saw science and religion as opposing forces, and in my thirst for evidence and answers science was clearly winning.

Born in the 1990s, I am a part of the cookie cutter MTV generation. From a young age my generation was fed with doses of Marxism and sexually charged subliminal messages (though it was not nearly as bad as it today).

As a socially awkward and introverted young child (mostly due to the fact that I grew up without my father) during elementary school, I missed out on many of the trends that we as children were supposed to follow, music in particular. Due to the influence of my stepfather I became hooked on rock music, particular alternative soft-core bands, and I never gained any interest in rap and hip hop, I am grateful for this because the probably helped me to break through the Illuminati programming as a teen.

As I entered adolescence and a co-ed high school, I immediately began to notice that I was very different very the majority of my peers, enamored by TV shows and movies such as  Jersey Shore and Twilight, and fans of musical artists such a Lil Wayne and Lady Gaga.

I felt very out of touch with my peers, and In an effort fit in, I began to emulate their lifestyles, I started partying, watched reality TV, and listened to rap and hip hop. I even got involved with a girl all at the age of 14. Fast forward a couple months and reality hit me. The girl broke up with me claiming boredom; my friends started to get drunk and have sexual intercourse, things which I was never felt comfortable with. I slowly began to realize that this was not me; this was not the lifestyle I wanted to pursue.

EPIPHANY

In the winter of 2012 I had an epiphany and shed my agnosticism as I began to see intelligent design all around me.

“There is a God” I thought to myself; therefore he must want us to follow a religion.

So I began to search for a religion. I began to read about Islam, the third Abrahamic faith that we know so little about and saw that Islam was in many ways the solution to the NWO.

Submission to the will of God is in stark contrast to Crowley’s “do what thou wilt”. Islam offers a clear guideline of how a family should be. How men should be fathers, protectors, providers and loving to their wives as well how women should be mothers, caregivers, homemakers and primary educators of the children during early development (NO TV).

There was one particular documentary called “The Divine Book” that really hit the nail on the head for me.

It explained the history of revelation from God, and the underlying message between all the Abrahamic faiths and gave plenty of scientifically miraculous verses from the Quran, pointing to its divine nature.

My interest was piqued, and I decided to give this faith a try. I turned by back on the church because I did not feel it answered the questions I had as a young adult.

Islam was something new and refreshing. I took my shahadah (testimony of faith) at a mosque in Kingston in July 2013, two days before the start of Ramadan, assisted by my friend from India.  I embraced what I believed to be the religion of Abraham (peace be upon him). I immediately began to fast as I undertook the second of Islam’s five pillars.

A week into my fast, I began to understand the purpose and wisdom behind virtually starving myself. I was beginning to feel a spiritual connection with all the poor and destitute people around the world. It was a humbling experience, and it brought me down to earth and reminded me of what it meant to be human.

PILLARS OF ISLAM

I learned the third pillar of Islam, Salah (literally meaning connection, in this case to God.)   As I learned how to pray I marveled at the chasm of difference between prayers in Islam and Christianity. For me personally Islamic Prayer was more meaningful, sincere and heartfelt. Because it is a constant activity it tempers your day and keeps your mind focused on God. Five times a day we turn towards the holy city of Mecca and prostrate, a sign of ultimate submission to the almighty. There is no better feeling than praying in congregation with other Muslims at a mosque.

The fourth pillar of Islam, Zakaat intrigued me the most. Staunchly conservative in my early teenage years, the religious obligation of paying a tithe of 2.5% of one’s wealth annually opened my eyes with regards to the distribution of wealth. I realize now that the wealth we have does not belong to us, it is all a trust from God, the money we earn and spend throughout our lives is really just a test of our stewardship. I have become a much more charitable person since my conversion, always looking to help those less fortunate than myself.

The fifth pillar of Islam, “Hajj” is the one I most look forward too. The documented experiences and testimonies of the millions who have made the pilgrimage to Mecca only serves to affirm my beliefs that these rituals, performed by men and women of all races, from all walks of life changes people for the better. You become a more tolerant and understanding person. I plan to make the pilgrimage myself once I graduate from university and muster enough cash, as the Saudi regime has made this religious obligation of ours into a racket.

I would recommend any teen to embrace Islam as a way of life, especially considering the way the world is today.

Remember the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” and as the Quran puts it “Show forgiveness, speak for justice, and avoid the ignorant.”- Surah 7 verse 199.

Islam is nothing less than the religion from God, once probably understood and implemented. All the prophets preached the same message that is there is only one God and that we are to worship him.

I have made many new friends as a result of my new faith, and I have much deeper understanding of global events particularly those surrounding the Middle East. I invite all to learn more about and maybe embrace this beautiful way of life.
