A Belgian woman converted to Islam in the Razavi Holy Shrine and uttered the two testimonies of faith in the Holy Shrine.
According to Astan News, Miri Fabiul Lamorit, who has attended the Razavi Holy Shrine for the third time, has converted to Islam from Christianity Catholic.
“I observed the real Islam seven years ago when in the hospital I met my patient ‘Nesar Ahmad Amiri’, who ignited the first sparks of real Islam in my mind”, she said.
“After this acquaintance, I tried to learn more about Islam and to ask my questions about the reason of performing prayer and the like from my patient”, she continued.
“A Qur’an in French, a book about prayer, and a Nahj al-Balagha were the first gifts from him. After a while, I started reading the books and did my best to comprehend their exalted contexts”, she said.
“I adopted Nesar as my child and with his help, I learned many Qur’anic concepts including the oneness of God that drew me to contemplation”, she said.
Pointing to pilgrimage of Imam Reza (A.S.), she said, “Imam Reza (A.S.) and Imam Hussein (A.S.) were individuals who granted to me a high amount of energy for converting to Islam; I has a indescribable feeling upon converting to Islam. “
Referring to Qur’an surahs, she noted, “The surahs ‘Alaq’ and the story of Hazrat Jesus Christ were among the valuable surahs that have caused that I realize Islam according to its exalted instructions and try to take this celestial religion with myself as souvenir to my friends.”
It is notable that at the end of this ritual, the Muslim convert was awarded the Islamic conversion certificate and some blessed gifts by Office of Non – Iranian Pilgrims and Miri chose the name ‘Maryam’ for herself.
