Inspirational Brothers Coming to Islam

It's not just the ladies making their mark as reverts to Islam...

I know it's been a while since I have written and I apologize for my neglect.  I won't say much but I can say that no one can accuse me of depriving Talal from having his Mother's full abiding attention!  Well, enough about that, I was scanning Twitter as I do to see what's what and who's who and who's not who anymore and this story caught my eye.  You know I do love stories about reverts to Islam and all of the stories I have shared have always been about the Sisters and I love boasting to others that Sisters maintain the lead when it comes to "choosing the straight path".  It was, I admit, refreshing to read about the inspirational Brothers who have chosen the road less traveled (in America).  I think it's extremely important for there to be more Brothers coming to Islam because they can really take the torch to places that are a little taboo for the Sisters to go to (much to my dismay).  Each of their stories is different and please share these videos with others in hopes that they will feel the urge to take that final step to glory and be the Man they were meant to be...

Usama Canon interviews Mustafa Davis about his recent tour to South East Asia and discusses Mustafa's childhood and opens up a very intimate conversation by asking "How did you get to where you are now?" Coming from a broken home, Mustafa candidly discusses his upbringing and how he found many similarities to his own story (amongst converts, reverts and born Muslims) during his travels throughout South East Asia.

Glad To Be Back!

Assalamu Alaikum!!!!!!!!!

Bismillah Al-Rahman Al-Rahim

It feels so good to come out of "hiding".  As most of you know I was pregnant for the past 9 months, lol...a normal length of time, and then Alhamdulillah, I gave birth to the most precious gift that God could grant me.  

Talal Hassan Tahat

January 5th, 2012  7 lbs 10 oz.  20.4 inches

AlHamdulillah, he is the sweetest joy and the coolness of our eyes.  Talal is now five weeks old and growing like the weeds in my front yard! I have been so busy of course, attending to his every need and desire and believe me, he has learned how to work over Mommy and Daddy!  He's a cheerful sprout in the mornings, right around 4 am he expects Mommy to play with him!  We are over joyed with this bundle of snuggles and now that I feel more confident in my "Mommy skills"...I am ready to get back to work!
I am super excited to share with you my first event since the changes in my life!
