After watching 2012 and Doomsday, I became a Muslim

MV: Aselamulaikum!

Many people that convert or should I say reconvert back to Islam have amazing stories most of the time. From Yusuf Estes to a US Mayor, they all have very good stories mashAllah. The most recent one I have found is from a story someone has submitted on my friends blog, Islamic Experiences. This Muslim reconverted from watching the movie, 2012 and doomsday mashAllah! I personally have seen the movie 2012 and that movie can seriously be something that makes you have fear of the end of the world, I can see how he could have became a Muslim. Read up on this story because it is simply amazing mashAllah! May Allah (swt) continue to guide this man inshAllah.

“Asslaamu Alaikum Wa Rahamatullah Wa Barakatu.

My name is Hussein King Jordan. I am 30 years old working in Qatar. This is my first time to work outside the Philippines. When I arrived here (Feb 2009) my religion was Christianity so I never thought that in a long run I would be in Islam.

In November 2009, my officemate and I were decided to watch a movie 2012 and Doomsday; I’m sure you know these [movies]. So after that I was not able to sleep because I was affected by the movie. I mean I was scared from the huge earthquakes and thunderbolts. I asked myself well if this happened “Where will I go Paradise or Hell?” So that’s how it started.

I started researching for the truth, I printed articles [about] anything that would answer my questions. So it came to my mind about ISLAM. What’s ISLAM? Luckily, I have a Muslim born office-mate. So I started asking him about Islam in general. He was able to answer all of my questions. I got satisfied too but I still continued reading Islamic books. I asked [for] guidance; [I asked] God to guide me to the right path.

I am aware how they tagged Muslim as a terrorist. Indeed, we have Muslims in Mindanao, Philippines. That’s why in the Philippines, when you say Muslim, [people think that] these are group of people making trouble in a said area. Not all of them [though].

There were times that, every time I heard Adhan it was like I want to do Salah but I don’t know how (that time I was not yet Muslim). It took two to three months before I decided to embrace Islam.

No one forced me to join Islam. Honestly, I embraced Islam because of its genuine messages from one God to mankind. I embraced Islam because God has guided me and took me from darkness into light. I embraced Islam in January 27, 2010.

Now, I am almost nine months being a Muslim. I am happy attending congregational salah and Sunnah salah. I went to Makkah for umrah and I visted Madinah with the help of Qatar Guest Center. I never thought in [my] life that I [will] go visit the Holy City. Alhamdulillah.

It was my first time to experience Ramadan so now I know how it feels and blessed. My soul is now satisfied to where I am. I gained peace of mind; this is because of Allah’s guidance. I am still continuing reading books about Islam and the Holy Quran. I am currently studying the Arabic language. I am excited to share [the] Islamic teachings to my family, especially to my son and teach him how to do salah insha-Allah. “
