“I was dead sure that I was the first muslim in the world that can’t pray because she’s too stupid. I was looking at the pages and going, “No way, man. That’s like, What?? This can’t be done!” but i started reading from here to there and following the poses… I started with one, then two, then four… then eventually fajr was added to the list. it took me a week to memorise all i had to, but if it takes longer for you, it’s fine, don’t worry about it, its the intention that counts.”

“We started to talk about Islam. She told me what would happen at the end of this world and what would happen to non-believers. After hearing that, I was extremely scared about what she described to me. And I was so overwhelmed that couldn’t speak a single word. That night, my value of this world totally changed. But alhamdulillah, when I woke up in the next morning, I accepted God very easily and peacefully.”

When my Muslim boyfriend left me, I was really heartbroken. But come to think if it, I would not have turned to the Truth if I had not met him. My heart is at peace knowing what is meant for me will never miss me, and what missed me is not meant for me.

“I made Shahada led by Dr Zakir Naik in his lecture with over 1,200 witnesses. My question was how I could deal with other religious practice in society as Japanese Muslim. The answer by him was “If you do not go against what Quran says, it should not be a problem.” It was my last question before reverting. I felt so relieved that I am finally part of Islam and my heart gets clean.”

“There was a time I hid from my parents about being muslim. I did my prayers in my toilet, it’s a small space but I have no other choice because I have no other place I can pray without them seeing. And it was also hard for me to go to the Mosque. Because I always had to lie to my father.”


“My dream is to become a Japanese Imam InsyaAllah. Next September, I’ll go to Madinah University, so I have to improve and work very hard.”


“If you have never read the Qur’an, please don’t go spreading your ignorance to other people. Keep your mind open and away from the media. You can’t base a religion on a minority of people who have a wrong, misinterpreted idea of the religion.”

“I’ve experienced many things after I met my sweet husband. I’ve seen his kindness many times. One day he shared with me a small candy by dividing it into two with his teeth. He gave money to people who didn’t have a home in Japan. I was totally impressed.”
