American Revert Story

Im not a “revert” and have disdain for this term. I was Sunni Muslim for most of my life. My mom is Sunni and my dad was Shia. They both converted to Islam in their youth. I considered myself Sunni Muslim because I wanted to practice the sunnah of Muhammad SAW and not for the show of support for the caliphs. I always preached that all Muslims should be united and one. This is before I knew the history of Islam after Muhammad SAW. 

My conversion to Shia Islam started from a dream. On the 19th of Ramadhan in the year 2000 I had a dream in which I was visited by Muhammad SAW and Ali (عليه السلام). 

This dream took place in some type of desert valley. Muhammad was around my age at the time early 20’s  and Ali seemed a little bit older perhaps 30’s. Muhammad was wearing a white shalwar Kamiz Pakistani style and Ali was wearing brown kamiz. I gave Muhammad the salaam and a hug and kiss to each cheek. He smiled and asked me if this is the way Muslims Greet each other in my time where I live and I replied yes. He smiled and said Masha'Allah. Ali (عليه السلام) was holding a little boy but I do not know who this little boy was. We were all standing onside of a black classic old school car that was a drop top sunroof which belonged to them. 

Anyway after this dream I decided to learn about Shia Islam. I started learning the history of Islam which a lot of black American Muslims don’t know. Another side nit is that I didn’t know about the significance of the 19th of ramadhan prior to this dream. An Iranian Muslim who happened to be at the masjid heard about my dream and told me of the significance of the date. 

Alhamdulilah, this is when my life as Shia Muslim officially started.

I was born with a family who are not religious at all. The only thing I did was praying life Shia’s. But this year, alhamdulillah I proud to say I’m a pro Shia. I choosed to be Shia because with all the evidence and prove they have in both Sunni and Shia book I can’t agree more that Shia follow the Prophet ((صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم)) religion. Plus I’ve never seen any Shia’s saying that Sunnis worship Umar or called as carpet worshippers just like how Anti-Shia called us Imam Ali (عليه السلام) worshippers and stone worshippers. A lot of anti-Shia’s said things that is not true about Shia’s.

Two basic reasons:

1. Shi'ism directly matched what the Qur'an actually said to me, in every respect. (also a little wave to Sufism there), so did the notion of successors through the family which open up the inner nature of the Qur'an. It checks out wholly to what the Qur'an says about previous Prophets and the nature of Revelation, theology/metaphysics, philosophy etc.

2. Sunnism gave me cognitive dissonance when I explored it early on and my interactions with Sunnis (before I even learnt about the distinction between Sunnis/Shia) made me resent them. And the less I say about the Salafi/Wahhabi portion, the better. :angry:
