…please do not see me as one.
I became muslim solely through the grace of God. All praise is due to Him, and none to me.
Being a convert doesn’t grant me super special status. My pitiful struggles in this life are nothing when you look to the great muslims of the past. If you want a role model, look to the mothers of the believers (ra), Rabia al-Adawwiya (ra), Sayyida Nafisa (ra) or any of the countless women who have dedicated themselves 110% to the deen and to Allah (swt).
Me? I am nothing. Please don’t put me on a pedestal. It just means I’ll have a lot longer way to fall down.
