Hello, all; it's very quiet in here, isn't it?I thought I'd join as I am Christian but my youngest sister converted to Islam some time ago. She and I have found that far from driving us apart, our respective faiths have brought us closer together due to the similarities between Christianity and Islam.There seem to be quite a few members here despite the lack of posts, so tell me - what brought you here? :-)
I was raised Christian but converted to Islam and wear the hijab. I do it for various reasons and I guess I joined to learn why others do it. Before I was Muslim I thought it was oppressive and it disturbed me, but I find that when I wear it of my own volition, it is quite liberating. I guess I wanted to share thoughts with others.
