My story about convert to Islam in 1997

My name is sharon , Since I was born deaf , I was Christian for 15 years I grew up with good family as Salvation Army ... that I was 13 , I went to high school, I see Muslim girl who wore the head scarf and my deaf friend said to me " it is too hot!! why they wear like that!!" I said to my friend "shut up!! it their culture!!" because I grew up where I lived next door Muslim neighborhood , I remember those days , I had seen so many ladies who wear hijab, I wonder how they worn... I was embraced Islam for 8 years. I was studying the other reglions,I tried to do it but didn't worked, I can't think of Islam some friends laughed at me, because I was looking for Islam and I trying to become Muslim,

they think I 'm crazy but I'm not. I went to mosque at Lakemba
I had My shahadah then become muslim, this issue , when I was new muslim , I was scared to wear hijab it might be spat on me

I wore hijab and jilbab , that time I worn that hijab make me "protection" my parents suprised me I was become muslim, they accpet me. my friends was shocked I was muslim. they look at my clothes I wore. I learnt wudu and salaat,

Now , one year, those deaf Christian trying push me because they think Allah was moon-god or another god, I told them "no god but allah,muhammad(pubh)the messenger from god." but they disbelieve me, I thank Allah protection me.

another day, some deaf people ask me so many question about hijab , they say like: what colour your hair ? or do you wear black or what?? or why you cover up?? but I wonder that they give me big question I explained to them . deaf people don't understand about Islam as much...

when they asked these question about hijab but I was
thinking "what 's wrong with my head??? or why they
ask me so big question?? but too many question for me
I felt happy to explain about Islam . alhamdulillah, my iman growth like flower and I had learnt about hijab , Allah guide
me to right path ameen!!

WOW!!! Masha'Allah, Sharon that's a beautiful and enlightening story. Really, I'm so happy just to have read your conversion and how strong you are with all the challenges and social questions.

I'm studying BSL - so I could probably figure out some Aus. SL too - if it's much different. You should make videos too!!

Any questions, ideas or whatever, I'm on my own blog (Muslim for 10yrs+)
And I made a group blog called and here one deaf sister from Canada talks about her hijab and conversion etc.
If you've any other similar stories let me know and we'd LOVE to have you on board insha'Allah.

You're a star. Barak'Allah.
With respect,

Salamo aleikom sis. You're not any different from any other convert to Islam. i always had these questions about hijab, actually, i had some really funny ones like "is she wearing that scarf because she is with her period?" lol. many of the questions weren't actually directed to me. my friends at school received questions about me, people didn't have the guts to ask me face to face.

Alhamdulilah. You went to Lakemba first of all? how were you received there? i would be too scared to go to lakemba lool. the lebanese are really angry ppl. not all of them just the young men
