In 1930, Dr. Sir Mohd. IQBAL, the well known Urdu and Persian poet and IslamicPhilosopher, expressed the need of publishing a book, in which the stories of all thosewho had converted to Islam in India be recorded. He said that it would give a new boostto the cause of Islamic propagation.He was asked, if there are not already books that express the logic and truth of Islam andare they insufficient, the noted scholar said:“Yes they are more than sufficient, but you would get so many new points from such a book that you will be amazed. I think there are different ways to impress the heart andmind. Many times brain rejects the most potent of the arguments, but the hearts getsimpressed by a very small incident or some very small point and grads the mind also.Conversion to Islam is al related to brain as it is to the heart. A muslim missionary mustknow what are the darts that affect heart. There are so many tales of unbelievers comingto Islam thru out the history. We see a person standing firm on his religion for manydecades, yet a small point and a small acts of kindness, sweeps him away from his feetand he makes the most momentous decision of his life.You have many logical arguments to prove the truth of Islam, but if you go to a newMuslim and ask him, what impressed him about Islam and what were the points whichimpressed him. If you have in book form, stories of a large number of such people, itwould be a very powerful tool in the hands of Muslim missionaries. Many newarguments of truth of Islam will come out, which might not be available in the vastIslamic literature we have”So many books have been written for past few decades on the true stories of new convertsof Islam. I have compiled about 250 of them and abridged them to be between 6000-8000 words for ease or reading and to be posted in many shared channels on Internet anddistribution thru e-mails etc.People might agree or disagree with some of points mentioned here. But these are personal experiences and personal reasons of these people who accepted Islam of their own free will. Some of them suffered much about this new faith. What kept them firm totheir faith varies from one person to another person.I pray to Allah to accept this effort and make it useful for those who read it and share itwith other people.
