Ottawa: Canadian travel blogger, and renowned social media personality Rosie Gabrielle who reverted to Islam has shared the video of her Shahada (reciting of kalima) on her YouTube channel.
Hello Friends! If you haven’t been following me on Instagram or Facebook- or happened to watch the news lately :S This might come as a bit of a shock for you. Spirituality is between you and GOD- so why am I sharing this ?! This is my Shahada, where one testifies that they believe in One true God, and that Prophet Muhammad PBUH- is a messenger of God. This can be done in public, with people, or even whispered quietly to yourself on your own. It is with the intention in your heart that you know what you are saying and that you wholeheartedly want to follow this path. I feel it’s so important to share the truth that is Islam, which is peace, love and oneness. It is one of the most criticized, osterized, and misunderstood religions worldwide from both non Muslims AND Muslims !!! As in any religion, there are many interpretations and personal views/sects, which is not the true teachings of God, this is Human flaw. And its taking away from the true essence of God and Humanity, which is oneness and equality for all, instead its creating division. I’ve been on a deep spiritual path now for many years, and after spending so many years in a Muslim country, especially after traveling Pakistan, I learnt so much. So much about my own self, God and what Islam really is- FROM THE FIRST HAND PERSPECTIVE. YES, maybe HUMANS do bad things in the name a religion- this is in every case, but it is not fair to condemn and judge an entire nation of people because of some bad choices or impersonators. I suggest you do not listen to those who preach, whether it be some “guru” or the media…. find your own truth by seeking Divine guidance and go deep within. Find the real truth before making presumptions, this only makes one look very angry and upset- which- I’m sure you are… the world is full of HATE, FEAR, INTOLERANCE, PAIN, and everyone wants to blame someone else!! BUT. what we fail to see is. WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER. No matter what we believe. So lets put aside the prejudices and instead of hate, evoke a question inside that says- This is a human being, created by God, one with all, who has witnessed and gone through pain in their life, and they’re just trying to do the best they can. If they see solace through a religion that in turn makes them a good person who does nothing love and want love. So be it. let’s all be here to support eachother. And that certainly does not mean telling someone HOW to practice or believe. A path is a special path between you and GOD, no one can judge or tell you what to do. step by step, by learning and growing you will find your truth. This is mine 🙂 I hope you enjoy.
