There are those fortunate ones (I say this with a grain of salt as my previous book has discussed this in detail) who are born in Muslim families and then there are those who are guided to the Truth by the Mercy of Allah  at some point later in their lives. We call them ‘the converts.’ Most Muslims use the term with a certain undertone to it as if the converts are entering this arena with a certain handicap. But the Arabs say, “Al–Ăilm–utĀbiq–al–waqĂ” (true knowledge conforms to reality), and the facts tell a
different story and hence for the most part, the converts are the real fortunate ones.

Most of us are familiar with the names of some of the famous coverts to Islam: Shaykh Hamza YĈsuf, Dr. Umar Farooq Abdullah, Martin Lings (Abu Bakr Sirajuddin), Muhammad Asad, shaykh Gibril Haddad etc. All of them went on to become celebrated scholars of Islam.
What is so different between these men and millions of those who are born in Muslim homes across the globe?
