Catholic teacher feels pride after embracing Islam


Riyadh: Lorna, former catholic teacher feels pride after embracing Islam.

She told this in a ceremony organized to honor new Muslims in Riyadh. The function was attended by Zeinab bint Abdullah Al-Rajhi, Under Secretary of the Student Study Center at the Imam Mohammed bin Saud Islamic University and others.

According the news published in Ummid.com, Lorna’s story to embrace Islam is very interesting. “Before embracing Islam, I was a teacher at a Catholic church. Later, I decided to move to Saudi Arabia to seek a better life”, Lorna recalled at the gathering. “My sponsor once asked me to clean up the library shelves. While I was busy working, I found a translation of the Holy Qur’an. I asked my sponsor if I could read it, and she welcomed the idea”, she added. “Later, I expressed my desire to embrace Islam to my sponsor who took me to a preacher who helped me pronounce the Shahada (testimony of faith). And today I feel proud to be a Muslim”, she said.

Mona Nasser Al-Khaledi congratulated the new Muslims for embracing Islam.
