very very excited about this one science is always a very predominant part of our lives growing up in school and yeah I'm excited to see what she has to say I was born into a family that was not two villages my grandmother was Buddhist so that was what

we practiced at home burning Joss sticks Joss papers pray in front of the altar etc at the same time my parents enrolled me into a convent where I was exposed to Catholicism we said prayers and sang hymns every day and I really enjoyed it at that age I

never fully understood the concept of religion and the difference between the different Creed's it did not realize that individuals were expected to pick a religion in fact I thought that God was one in the same and whether burning Joss sticks are singing hymns it was just the different

means we had to reach the same God meal shared the young me thought that everyone shared the same God but we just communicated with him in our own ways during my teenage years I developed my intellectual domain tremendously I developed a strong interest in science science is the

most amazing thing to me it explained many of the things in a never new boat so perfectly every time I learned something new it was like something clicked a piece of puzzle would fit and I could visualize how everything came together on Lego there was a particular part

of my learning where this process failed me and did not give me the same satisfaction and that was when we learned about the creation of the universe and the origin of life no matter how I tried stand and internalized the Big Bang Theory it was not intuitive to

me to not feel right likewise when we were taught that all species on earth originated from a single cell it did not separate with me there was no click no fitting of the puzzle no images and visions in my head all that like blood on the paper this

time it was not filled with satisfaction but doubt that bothered me and I never knew why naturally my love for science drove me to take a science course in university I had previously developed an idealization of Darwin in this work in that situation there was no room for

religiosity no one could convince me otherwise because come on it's science science was my love I aspired to be a scientist I made a hobby out of challenging my religious peers on their beliefs quoting the grand questions from Richard Dawkins and Christopher Hitchens that were meant to undermine

their faith they would often stumble and stutter and I would feel triumphant as they would further reinforce my beliefs during the last year of University and met my husband admittedly I had little to no interaction with any Muslims in the past two decades of my life he was

the first Muslim I met are you absolutely nothing about Islam since he thought to introduce Islam to me I thought why not ask him the questions I used to ask my religious friends and stumped them so he should stop here too to my surprise he gave me very

assured answers but like the friends i stumped previously since I knew nothing about Islam I thought to give him a chance okay so when you're in the mosque once don't you do you pray to there is no statue we pray to God then what do you pray to

God oh okay so who's your God who's the Muslim got what to see he's not a Muslim God he has thought the the Creator Allah just means the one and only got as long as you believe in the Creator there's no your God by God it's our God

so you prayed him upwards we'd read their prayers in a particular direction oh is it some holy direction no it is towards the Kaaba oh the black stone you believe it to be magical and then it possesses mythical powers right no it's just a block made of stone

huh then what's so holy about it it's not only Allah is divine it simply focuses every Muslims prayer in the same direction this particular conversation shattered so many preconceived notions I have religions admittedly they never bothered to deep dive into any when I was younger but the aspects

I thought biological were so eloquently addressed in his song I wanted to find out more he told me about the prophet who was unlettered in the Quran which has not been altered in the past 1400 years I was intrigued this was such a refreshing perspective to religion everything

that I thought were clear signs that religions were man-made were not manifested in Islam I remember thinking to myself if someone made this up that person must have been a genius it was different refreshing intuitive I felt a click it made sense all praise be to God he

opened my heart that day as I began my journey in Islam the video was awesome that time I was so so good to definitely go into a cut the link in the description box if you haven't already checked out the channel I love it so so much it's

gray is full of such good content and stories like the one we just watched I can kind of relate to her story and how she's going through this process so she grew up in a Buddhist family it was obviously very religion orientated and then growing up she was

exposed and open to more possibilities she went to to study science at school like we all do and we're all were all drilled into a heads our way that the Big Bang was the only reason that our word exists and it's not until she went to study science

University and a love grew so much and met who now is her husband she probably would have continued that same path without really opening herself up to the possibilities and it's not until she started reading the Koran that she really understood and it's a very similar path to

me she only took science until she met Muslims until she met these people and was surrounded by such great people and that opened their up to wanting to explore more and I love how she says that this is either the work of God or the work of an

incredibly smart man and the more and more of the Quran I read the more incredibly overwhelmed I get the thought of someone fighting that 1,400 years ago and explaining what we're only just finding out it's just fascinating videos like this really just enforce exactly how I'm feeling and

the process I'm going on say that was really really cool thank you for watching and if you have any video suggestions definitely send them my way my email address will be in the description box or just send me a message on Instagram oh yeah I'm loving all the

suggestions you're sending me they're really really good so thank you so much and see you in the next video
