My name is Scott, I'm from England and I reverted to Islam on the 5th of March 2012.
My stepdad is Muslim and he is originally from Bosnia. He has been giving me, my younger brother and also my mum dawah for years, and he taught me and encouraged me a lot with Islam. Mostly everything I know about Islam has been taught to me by him. I had been thinking about becoming Muslim for about 2 years, but it took me a long time to decide what I wanted, but I finally did so in March. What convinced me to really seriously consider whether or not to convert was that my mum said in January that she was going to convert, so I decided I should make a decision. My mum hasn't yet converted, but she says she will definitely this year. I don't know why she is waiting but I suppose she has to be sure.
I'm really happy to be a Muslim and I just feel a much happier and better person now.
I'm hoping to learn more so hopefully you can help me out inshallah.
