Yasir Qadhi: Another Conversion Story

Published

We’ve all witnessed a conversion – after a Jumah, perhaps, or during a major conference, the announcement is made that someone is about to accept Islam. We’ve all become excited and tense, eager to see who this fortunate person is, eager to listen to their new shahada. We’ve all shouted takbirs with joy, and felt the tingling of an iman rush with the excitement of a new addition to our Muslim family.

Over the course of the last decade and a half, alhamdulillah Allah has blessed and honored me to have given many people shahada. Most of the time, I simply happen to be at the right time and place when the person who wishes to embrace Islam walks into the masjid or lecture hall. While it is, of course, an honor that I am able to give the shahada, because I had nothing to do with the person’s conversion, I don’t feel as much of a connection (even though every person’s accepting of Islam has its own personal thrill).

Occasionally, however, a person converts because Allah guided him or her through a lecture of mine. It is with such conversions that I truly feel humbled and awed (the infamous ‘Satish Babu’ conversion is always mentioned wherever I go – see the email below as well!).

This year, one conversion that really moved me was that of Sr. Dana. I was attending the RIS convention in Los Angeles and had just given a very emotional lecture on the beauty and power of dhikr. Wandering through the bazaar (a necessary requirement for every North American convention!), I saw a shy man approach me, wishing to shake my hand. After introducing himself and thanking me for the lecture, he told me that his wife was a Christian and that he had driven to Los Angeles from a small town in Kentucky in order to show his wife a Muslim gathering. He said that he was the only Muslim in the entire town, and that he and his wife and come down to the convention primarily to hear my lecture. He asked that I make du`a that Allah guide his wife. Touched by his story, and humbled by his compliment, immediately I prayed, “Allah will guide her soon, insha Allah!” And I thought that was the end of that. Little did I realize that the du`a would be accepted immediately!

A few minutes later, I saw him approach me again, looking very excited. He said that he had just spoken to his wife, and that she was so moved by my lecture that she wished to accept Islam right then and there – and all praise is due to Allah wa la hawla wa la quwwata illa billah.

I flagged down one of the organizers of the convention, and told him what had happened. Immediately, we returned to the convention, where I met Sr. Dana, who was literally trembling all over, nervous and excited. I spoke with her briefly behind stage, and then we went on stage to perform her shahada.

I myself was so overcome with emotion that I could barely speak. Sr. Dana’s enthusiasm, her raw emotion, her tears of joy, were too much for me. Rarely do I have trouble speaking on stage – this was one occasion where I found myself stuttering and stammering to sound intelligible.

You can watch the video for yourself to feel just a glimpse of the raw emotion that was present:

Afterward, Sr. Dana wrote me an e-mail which was also very moving. With her kind permission, I am sharing it. I hope that it moves you as much as it moved me!

Salaam alikoum Mr. Qadhi.

InshaAllah my email finds you and your family in good health and preparing for Ramadan.

I do not know if you will remember me, but it has been on my mind to email you so I hope you do not mind. My name is Dana. I am from Hawesville Kentucky and on May 30, 2010 at the 1st RIS US convention you helped me make my shahada, ALHAMDULILAH!

When speaking to you backstage my tongue and brain would not function, because I was so very touched and honored that you were going to perform my shahada for me. I must tell you this story dear brother, because I want you and your family to realize that when you give lectures, and are away from them, that you are gaining much reward inshaAllah.

My husband Khalid arrived here from Morocco in 2005. In 2008, I finally agreed to start listening to Islamic lectures. Oh dear brother, Shaytan was with me in these times, because I was always saying: ‘I do not like this lecturer’s voice, this person is ‘old school’ ‘ etc.. May Allah swt forgive me.

In July 2008, I discovered a wonderful lecturer – a man named Sheikh Ahmed Deedat, do you know of him? He was wonderful Alhamdulilah. I searched the internet high and low for all of his lectures, then I came across a video and it was him dying. Oh, may Allah be pleased with him! I was very sad and did not listen to another lecture for a very long time.

In November 2009, I came across the RIS website by total accident, and then I discovered PeaceTV and my husband said to me: ‘Honey there is a lecturer named Yasir Qadhi, I think you will like him.’ We sat together and did listen to this lecture you did give at a Peace Conference where an Indian man said to you he was not sure about converting to Islam and you replied (please forgive me if it is not word for word): ‘Sir why wait to convert to Islam? Do you believe in the Quran? Do you believe in Mohammed pbuh? Do you believe in One God? Then you must not wait, for you do not know what the future holds, none of us know what tomorrow holds for us, you must not wait!’ That man came on stage with you and took his shahada. Even to this very moment I think of this and I weep. SubhanAllah! Needless to say I searched the internet high and low for your lectures, I found out you wrote books and inshaAllah my local library will be willing to order these for me.

I am an LPN and I had lost my job. But I still wanted to go to Long Beach this year for the RIS convention. I told my husband, ‘We must go!’ I could not explain it, but I knew we had to go. I kept joking with my husband, ‘Would it not be awesome if Yasir Qadhi performed my shahada for me?’ In my mind I knew it would never happen. I came to this conference to meet other Muslims (since it is only my husband and I in my area), and to hear your lecture, and to see Amr Khaled. I do not speak Arabic (one day inshaAllah) but when he makes du`a WOW it is amazing! When Sunday came I was so very excited!!

When you came on stage and started talking of dhikr, inside me literally something was pulling. I can not explain it to you brother – there are no words to describe it. But I felt like my insides were being torn apart, and new life was being instilled into my very core. When your lecture was over, I cried, because I knew I must make my shahada – because I knew I could not go any longer denying what has always been there. I knew I loved ONE God: Allah. I knew that Mohammed pbuh is his messenger. And I wanted to be a Muslim by taking my shahada, so I could finally praise Allah and pray to Him and submit to Him, like I was created to do.

When my husband called me and said he shook your hand, I laughed at him and thought ‘Yeah right!’ But he said, ‘Honey, I am serious!’

My next words were: ‘Ask him if he will perform my shahada, and call me back.’ Well, I never got that call back. But the entire time I was waiting for the call, my insides were on fire. I was full of energy and smiling from ear to ear. I was literally shaking from joy. Then I saw you standing by me. ALHAMDULILAH!!!!!

Having you perform my shahada showed me how much Allah swt loves me, how I am worthy of His love and that He is SO MERCIFUL, KIND and FORGIVING!

This is funny I must tell you: I was so joyful and proud, I wanted to give you a huge bear hug for helping me!! My husband could tell, and was literally dragging me off the stage  :)

I know, I know, customs, etiquette, etc. etc. …, but you are my dear brother in Islam and I did not understand why my husband was telling me ‘No!’, but now I do  :)

I just wanted to share that in case you thought I did not show proper appreciation towards you performing my shahada.

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for helping me along my journey, even though you had no idea, but now I hope you have the slightest insight, thank your wife and children for letting you travel and let them be proud of you and what you do. May Allah swt bless you with continued success in this life but most importantly with shade on the Day of Judgement. May we see each other again here in this life inshaAllah but most importantly in Jenna inshaAllah. May I continue to gain from your lectures, your books, may I be brave to spread the word of Islam to my community but most importantly may we both continue to be slaves and obedient servants to Allah swt. AMEEN!.

Thank you again and I look forward to your next lecture inshaAllah.

Sincerely with the love of Allah swt

Dana

PS Dear brother, you and your family are welcome to our humble home anytime. So you may discover “rural” America at it’s finest! :)

In these first few days after Ramadan, may Allah bless Sr. Dana, her husband, and all Muslims around the world!

Yasir

PS: I most definitely need to thank Sr. Dana’s husband for sensing how she had initially wanted to thank me and preventing her from doing that!!

Sh. Dr. Yasir Qadhi is someone that believes that one's life should be judged by more than just academic degrees and scholastic accomplishments. Friends and foe alike acknowledge that one of his main weaknesses is ice-cream, which he seems to enjoy with a rather sinister passion. The highlight of his day is twirling his little girl (a.k.a. "my little princess") round and round in the air and watching her squeal with joy. A few tid-bits from his mundane life: Sh. Yasir has a Bachelors in Hadith and a Masters in Theology from Islamic University of Madinah, and a PhD in Islamic Studies from Yale University. He is an instructor and Dean of Academic Affairs at AlMaghrib, and the Resident Scholar of the Memphis Islamic Center.

    Converting to Islam is the easy part. What is difficult is holding onto the religion when it is like holding onto hot coals. Allahu Musta’an.

    subhanAllah!
    conversion stories never fail to deliver an eemaan boost, cause a smile, and kindle feelings of thankfulness! it doesn’t matter how many of them you witness-

    “…Celebrate the praises of thy Lord, and pray for His Forgiveness: For He is Oft-Returning (in Grace and Mercy).”

    I still have notes from Yasir Qadhi’s dhikr session! may he find orchards upon orchards upon entering jannah, because “…jannah is beautiful with rivers but it is barren! And its seedlings are “alhamdulillah, subhanAllah, etc…”

    My friend and I had been looking forward to his lecture the whole convention, alhamdulillah..

    btw.. the PS is hilarious. ahaha.

    Sis. Dana’s expression of faith is literally one of the most powerful and touching things I have ever witnessed. Then the story that goes with it…the only thing one can do is to magnify the praises of Allah (swt).

    Words don’t begin to describe. Jazakum Allahu Khairan for sharing this.

    May Allah bless Sis. Dana, Sh. Yasir Qadhi, and the organizers of RIS!

    Welcome sister Dana. We love you for the sake of Allah.

    To Sh Yasir Q
    You really have NO idea how beneficial it is to watch your lectures. The one that I and most of our family constantly repeat to listen is “Journey of Worship”. It NEVER fails to lift my eman. 100s of relatives and friends and family members enjoy your lectures at home, in our cars, even took it to Africa (for holiday) and believe me, considerable change occur within themselves and ourselves. May Allah reward you, your family, and your teachers. It is blessing for us to have you in the community. Incidently I also watched your Doha Debates and how obliterated the opposition. Jazaakallahu kheyr for your efforts.

May Allah SWT continue to guide me, may all if our paths lead to Allah SWT, may we all hear ;”Salam Alikoum, I am pleased with you!”

      Dear Sister Dana and Br Khalid

      Assalamu alaikum and Eid Mubarak

      I was so moved by your story and asked Allah to increase in your eman and amalus Salihat. Keep you and us always in the good connection of allah and keep our touges wet with rememberance.

      Sister, you are not alone but so many muslims from around the world like us feeling you are a true sister of ours. If we dont meet in this life insha allah we will meet in teh Jennah.

      Life of being a new muslim is not always easy and all muslims will be tested. All the prophets were tested. I ask Allah to protect you from all the fitans but when tested please be patients and ask Allah a lot of dua and do the right thing what come may.

      I am not a person who can tell about a person from the face but I noted that your husband and you have light in your faces. May allah increase his noor in your life and if you need anything that we can provide please do email me.,

      I am from down under lot far from where you live although I am at the moment working in the middle east as a proefssor in a medical school. I am certainly moved by your vedio and Shk Yasir Qadi is someone from whom you can learn authentic islam insha allah

      If you are ever coming to the Middle East or decide to visit Australa pl contact me as I would like to host you

      Salam to your dear husband. May Allah bless you in this world and the hearafter.

      “I came to this conference … and to hear your lecture”

      Yasir Qadhi, or I should now say DR Yasir Qadhi, is the main reason why I’m going to the gpu conference. It was his series on “towards understanding surah yusuf”, (found on youtube), which made me love his speeches.

      Thoroughly agree with you – he rocks!

    One doesn’t delay giving the Shahadah. When one wants to embrace Islam, they say the Shahadah immediately—they don’t need to go to get witnesses or wait to get on a stage. May Allah guide her to the best.

    Brought tears to my eyes, still streaming down my cheeks. Sometimes we forget what a gift we have, or if we don’t forget then maybe we take it for granted, until we see something like this.

    May Allah make us worthy of this gift, and help us to live up to it. Without Him (SWT) we would have been powerless to find the truth on our own.

    I personally think the best lecture you have given till date is ‘Why we worship God’ ! Wallahi it settled my iman! It reached deeep into both my iman and intellect! You are a true blessing to the ummah. I have many of lectures in my phone and listen to it constantly Hamdllah.

    The Shiekh is a true blessing to our Ummah. I can say for sure that the “Day of Judgement” and the “Refuting attacks on Islam” were the most moving lectures for me. May Allah swt Reward him rightly for making me and others realize what a precious gift we have. And if anybody has not listened to those lectures they definitely should give it some time, well worth it!!! :)

    Sheikh Yasir’s posts on MM are always inspiring to read. I have a question on this note: when are you going to do that post about the issues of Hijrah, Dar’l Islam, Dar’l Harb etc? And what happened to the series on salvific exclusivity?

    I was playing the lecture on a screen and everyone kept on turning to stop and listen, Alhamdulillah, I think even at Journey of Faith we had a conversion after the lecture, Alhamdulillah, Allahu Akbar

    Asalaamu Alaikum everyone! When I saw the video I was close to tears. I am also a convert to Islam, and I know that pulling feeling. It is the attachment to this world: old lifestyle, non-Muslim family’s perspective, old eating habits, etc. But Alhamdulilleh you pulled out of that and won that inner tug of war. I hope that sister Dana can contact me through this website so I can offer to teach you how to read the Qur’an. I have developed a method that will soon be a published book, “Everybody’s Arabic” which gets the non-Arab to read from the Qur’an in the first lesson, in a very easy, step-by-step method. Within 6 months you will read the Qur’an in Arabic, inshaAllah. Please forward her contact to me and anyone else who wants to read Qur’an. JezakAllahu khairan

    Alhamdulillah!!!! I witness this shahadah too and am still getting goosebumps thinking about it!!! My daughter and I still talk about this beautiful moment. Hearing you say shahadah gave us a rush of iman as we repeated it after you. Sister Dana, I am one of the random Muslim sisters in black abaya that gave you a hug in the hallway at the Long Beach convention center. I never had a chance to get your email then or talk to you more because of the huge crowd but I did hope that I would get in touch with you one day. Allah knows…. Allah hu Akbar!

    I felt bad that we are so excited for our new Muslim sisters when they come to Islam but forget to be there for them as they progress on their journey. Alhamdulillah for MM and the shaykh for writing about this!!!! I hope to keep in touch with you. May Allah bless you and hope you are doing well in Kentucky :)

    Wow…. it’s been awhile since I watched something that moved me to tears like this. Alhamdulellah. When ikhlas (sincerity) is present, it’s light pushes through the rustiness of our hearts, in the dark corners that have been growing cold, and touches us all.

    Welcome to Islam Dana!

    Thank you, Shaykh Yasir for taking the time to share this with all of us, and grant me the opportunity to witness such a beautiful moment as that. Jazakum Allahu Khairan.

    Just to say the same thing as Sister Dana:

    Br. Yasir Qadhi, Muhammad Alshareef, Nouman ali Khan and all others scholars doing dawa cannot even imagine how far their lecture goes with the Internet.

    I am an African, in Africa, a native french speaker, leaving in a french speaking country, but I barely have french mp3 and videos lectures in my computer. Everything is in english since I discovered Almaghrib institute and its teachers…..

    I was blessed with the shahadah from birth. But at one point I was dead; spiritually dead until i was blessed with listening to some lectures and ever since Sheikh Yasir Qadhi’s lectures have helped rejuvenate my soul. Jazakallah for your efforts both apparent and hidden. Can you imagine how much thawab you will be banking all the people who have increased the imaan thanks to your bayan. Ihad a dream once i was sat conversing with Shaykh, i pray that dream comes true.

    We must all take the opportunity to thank Allah azza wa jal for blessing us in the west with Shuyookh who have genuinely have worry of the ummah.
