My name birth name was Moses but my new name is Musa. As you can see, Musa is a Muslim name. And I'm going to tell you the story of how a journey to my church made me a Muslim.

I was a very devoted and devoid person in the field of Christianity. I was always the first to go to church and always the last to go back home. Even people could testify that I was a very devoted and devoid person in the field of Christianity. I was even a baptized Christian. When I was even in Christianity, I had a bad perceptions about Muslims. I thought Muslims were terrorists and bad people.

On one faithful Sunday, I was on my way going to church when I saw the is touching story. I saw a man going and he mistakenly dropped his wallet. When he dropped his wallet I saw a man who was well dressed and even holding a bible picking the man's wallet. Before I could realize he dashed away with the wallet. I felt very bad, because Christians were not thought these things in Church. So I decided to try the same trick on a Muslim man who was begging for money. I intentionally dropped my wallet and couldn't believe what happened next. I thought the Muslim man will dash away with the wallet but oh boy how wrong I was. The Muslim man took the wallet and brought it to me saying that, sir please you dropped your wallet. I was extremely shocked. I asked him why he gave me my wallet back when he needed money. The man told me that, our prophet didn't teach us to steal. but do good deeds. I stayed with the man for a while and discussed many things with him about Islam. 

His answers indeed made me know how wrong I was thinking about Islam. The man ended the conversation by saying, I won't force you to be a Muslim but try best because the only true way is Islam. I was indeed mesmerized by the man's word. I thought about it deeply and decided to be a Muslim. I won't lie to you it was a very though decision. After becoming a Muslim, many of my family members were questioning me and even threatening me that I should give my life to Christ. But Allah has helped me overcome all those situations.
