Khadija Gourira
Shahada/Reversion to Islam

Daughter of Muslim-Moroccan Father and Christian-American Mother reverts to Islam at 13 years old.

A little while ago I decided to look into several different religions so that I could choose one. I had narrowed it down to hinduism, islam, and episcopalian (just cuz it was my moms).For a while I thought I would be muslim and then without any support (my parents are divorced so I went to live with my mom because I was only 2) I strayed. I had read alot of books in which the character was an indian hindu and I guess it attracted me. I went to a temple, bought a punjabi dress and even had a portable idol for altar worship. I also had a person who my mom worked with who was hindu help me out..she took me to temples and tought hindu ways to me.I realized how stupid I had been and what I had done. I recently rediscovered islam (because my dad, grandma, and stepmom are quite devout)and decided I was gonna stay here . I am looking into an islamic school for the eighth grade and if I am still here for the ninth i might go to morocco with my family. Today I took shahada.
