The Sun is Rising in the West: Journeys to Islam
New Muslims Tell About Their Journey To Islam
These Journeys to Islam are stories told by new Muslims. They reflect the strivings and triumphs of the soul, as each person struggled to find a meaningful spiritual existence. All of the stories are written by new Muslims who have come from a Western background, especially America. For each story told here, there are many, many stories left untold, but which are nevertheless happening every day in America.
The first part of the book is intended to acquaint new American-born Muslims with others already embarked on the road. The second half provides invaluable information on the basics of Islam. The book is a good reference for developing leadership among American-born Muslims and to understand reasons behind the attraction to Islam.
