My experience with members of the Islam faith has been extremely positive, and I have respect for the peaceful forms of that religion that many people practice. But the chasm between our faith and Islam can be quite wide. Crossing it can be an incredible challenge. One man’s journey from Islam to Mormonism is a gripping tale shared at LDS Living. Tito Momen’s story is told in “My Name Used to Be Muhammad: One Man’s Journey from Muslim to Mormon.” Read the article (or the book) and let me know what you think.
Fifteen years in an Egyptian prison for just his conversion to the LDS faith–how many of us would be willing to pay that price? How much he suffered and lost for his beliefs.
Even the darkest trials of our lives can have value when we turn to God. Thank goodness Tito endured his trials and clung to his faith.
