I converted to Islam from Christianity around 2001-2002.
I studied the Bible in its entirety and I came across many irreconcilable points (in my opinion).
I loved God very much, so I fasted and I prayed to be lead to His truth, and I was led to Islam.
Islam answered all of the points that arose in my Biblical research into Christianity (in my opinion).
I studied Islam on my own when I learned that Muslims believe in the God of Adam, Abraham, Noah, Moses, and Jesus.
You do not need a mosque to observe Islam. Mosques are recommended for prayer and congregation to establish religious brotherhood within the
local community, and to help influence faith and upright moral behavior. A Muslim does not have to pray at a mosque, for God says the entire world is
a place of prayer. Mosques are recommended for the extra benefits and virtues of community prayer, but a Muslim is a Muslim anywhere and can pray
anywhere. But a Muslim should get to a mosque when they can for Friday prayer service.
