Rashida S. (Rachel Singer - USA)
I came to Islam late, a daughter of a devout Roman Catholic mother/verydevout Jewish father. By age 4 I knew of Allah and in 1991 I traveled toEgypt to read some of my writing. I had already spent almost 20 yearsamong the most pious of Jews, had married, had children. When I heard themuezzin* before Fajr* his voice was like the arrow one dreams that a loverwill shoot into the heart, it cut & held me unable to speak. Not even knowingArabic, I knew the sound, it is like a recognition of something so profound,so great and if I may say, so sweet that one has been searching for. TheQuran speaks to me clearly as if it was written for Jews to hear and wake up.I had to leave the community I lived in and my children. I did not chose to, Ihad to. Those of you, young and coming into Islam are truly blessed. Youhave your lives, will marry and raise Muslim children in’shallah.
The only people who can say they are Chosen, are those who search for theTrue path to Allah with all their heart.
* Muezzin: A person who calls for prayers in the mosque. The AZAN is thecall. It usually occurs 5 times a day. The AZAN’s context is the following:Allah is greater...I witness that there is no god but ALLAH. And I witnessthat Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. Come to the prayer.. come tosuccess...Allah is greater...* Fajr: Dawn.

Every person has a different way of coming to the Truth. For MoishaKrivitsky this way led through a faculty of law, a synagogue and a prison.
