Bismillah Rahman Raheem
Thank you for answering my email. I read your story and it was really incredible.
I have been reading about Islam for months now but never really considering anything until recently.
Before we begin, it is important to begin with the name of Allah and send the prayers and blessings on His last prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him. (Bismillah Rahman Raheem, was salat was salam ala rasoolulah).
Then it is equally important to mention that it is only Allah who has all Knowledge. (Allahu 'Alim).
Your letter has the key to the whole solution.
You mentioned the one thing that we always notice people doing who come to Islam (including myself) - you said you prayed directly to God for guidance.
You see there is no guidance except from Almighty God Himself. And if a person is sincere and they ask Almighty God (Allah), there is no doubt except that Allah will guide them to His Way (Islam).
