My Journey to Islam- Laura Gomez (QI 2015)


I am from Colombia and I was brought up as a Catholic, my family, as most of my country are    not religious, being religious has a negative connotation as a matter of fact, people are supposed to have god in the heart, and I say ”god” not God because whoever knows a attribute of Allah Subhannahu Wa ta’la   couldn’t say such a statement…) in my culture as most of the west,  a person is supposed to be modern   and religiousness is not an attribute that is praised.


When I graduated from high school I went to study in United States where I had my first contact with muslims, It called my attention how some muslims are really different from the common folk just for the sake of Deen, I always thought ”religious” people to have double moral but when a muslim believes with his heart, its like a light in the darkness it radiates light and the people who live in darkness can benefit from it.


I felt amazed that there is people who pray 5 times a day (that sounded like a lot to me before) and they just do what their religion tells them to do, eat what their book tells them to eat, and dress like their religion tells them to dress. Now that I became part of the Ummah I realize how important is the way we come across others in order to give Dawah, because when  a non-muslim sees the commitment of the muslims towards their Lord, it makes them think: ”maybe this is the way”


Initially it was Tawheed that brought me to Islam, and then every single aspect of the Deen of Allah reassured me that this is the only way to success.


By the grace of Allah  I could come to Dubai  after 4 years, to live between muslims where I experienced the power of  Jama’a.


Every year during school time and university we used to do a life project and divide it by aspects, spiritual aspect, professional aspect, personal aspect,  I remember how long were my professional aspect goal list and the personal one as well and I remember how short and neglected it was my spiritual aspect goal list. But in Islam all the aspects of our lives, including community aspects like politics or social relations are all part of Islam, there is no division between the spiritual aspect and the rest and that is something I try to convey to non muslims today, we muslims not only pray 5 times a day to fulfill our religions obligations but we dress like Islam tells us to , we eat as Islam tells us to eat, we talk, we sleep, we behave as Islam tells us to behave, our whole being and  our ideologies, concepts, perceptions should all be according to the Quran and the Sunnah, that makes the difference between us and the non-muslims and that gives us, with the permission of Allah, if He wills, the distinction mark that help us to convey this message to those around us.  but if we take our religion as just something we do to fulfill only the spiritual aspect but our ideas and concepts and our dress code etc are not according to what the Deen of Allah says, then we are pretty much like the non believer so what is the difference then?


We call God Allah and they call him in so many ways, we pray in a masjid they do it in a church or in a synagogue, or in a temple, so the secret, in my opinion, is not ONLY on how we pray and how we fast, because that’s there and we should not be praised by what Allah commanded us to do, it is an order that should be obeyed anyway, but the secret lies on truly living as a muslim and to achieve the character of the Prophets, the Sahabas and the righteous ones, may Allah make us of those who live as real muslims. Ameen


Throughout the history,  the muslims who had achieved to be representatives of Quran on earth through their behaviour, have had the ability with the permission of Allah almighty, to attract the non-muslim, in a way that is soft towards Islam and to terrify the  stubborn enemy of Allah, sowhen a person like that, gives Dawah it is more positive and benficial.


  And may Allah makes us of those who represent Quran on earth.

 Islam  has changed me in many ways, one of the things that I used fear most to the point that I couldn’t talk about it was death, it terrified me to think that one day this life is going to be over and what about all what I built during my life? A lhamdulillah for the nay’mah of Islam, and Alhamdulillah because we have a clear picture of what’s to come, we all are going to die so we should make sure that our death is for the sake of our Lord, the most High.


Today, my goals and my targets are not the same as the past years. , I wanted to achieve a top position in Dunia, but today Alhamdulillah by the mercy of Allah, through his Book, I have realized that the Success lies on getting to Jannah NO MATTER WHAT IT REQUIRES FOR US TO SACRIFICE IN THIS WORLD, you name it, position, name, status, wealth, etc. IT IS ALL WORTH IT–FOR JANNAH


The reason behind marriage and being a mother, changes too, before I dreamt, as most of the women, to get a nice husband cute children and a beautiful home, but today my husband is the key to Jannah and if Allah grants me children, they would be my sadaqa tun Jariah, Inshallah.


The purpose of a muslim should not be to obtain Dunya, but to use this Dunya, to attain Jannah.

and may The Most Merciful, make us of those who attain the highest place in Jannah. AMEEN
