Why I embraced Islam - An Awe Inspiring Revert Experience of a Chinese Youngman

My readers would recall that I started this blog to share view of reverts and to know why the left the religion of their birth and entered into the fold of Islam. And each experience that I shared was awe inspiring as mostly these have been young people who thought their religion of birth was not soul satisficing and that there was some amiss that needed to be resolved and answered.

Today I am sharing the experience of young Chinese, Herald, from Singapore who had been searching for the truth as he felt kind of hollowness inside him - something that was compelling him to know more - something that was need to be put right.

He had been trying to find answers to his countless questions. He flipped pages after pages of Bible but his thirst could not be quenched. Then one day he tried to try referring to the Quran and he closed his eyes and randomly opened a page. And it turned out to be the 54th verse of Surah 22. Al Hajj (The Pilgrimage):

وَّلِيَـعۡلَمَ الَّذِيۡنَ اُوۡتُوا الۡعِلۡمَ اَنَّهُ الۡحَـقُّ مِنۡ رَّبِّكَ فَيُؤۡمِنُوۡا بِهٖ فَـتُخۡبِتَ لَهٗ قُلُوۡبُهُمۡ​ ؕ وَاِنَّ اللّٰهَ لَهَادِ الَّذِيۡنَ اٰمَنُوۡۤا اِلٰى صِرَاطٍ مُّسۡتَقِيۡمٍ‏ 
(He also does this) in order that those endowed with knowledge may know that it is the Truth from your Lord and that they may have faith in it and their hearts may humble themselves before Him. Verily Allah always directs those that believe to the Right Way.

He says: Althgh the message was very clear, yet I thought that I accidently opened this page. So I closed the Quran and again opened it randomly and I came across  53rd verse of Surah 41. Ha-Mim, which read:

سَنُرِيۡهِمۡ اٰيٰتِنَا فِى الۡاٰفَاقِ وَفِىۡۤ اَنۡفُسِهِمۡ حَتّٰى يَتَبَيَّنَ لَهُمۡ اَنَّهُ الۡحَـقُّ​ ؕ اَوَلَمۡ يَكۡفِ بِرَبِّكَ اَنَّهٗ عَلٰى كُلِّ شَىۡءٍ شَهِيۡدٌ‏ 
Soon shall We show them Our Signs on the horizons and in their own beings until it becomes clear to them that it is the Truth. Is it not enough that your Lord is a witness over everything?

And it sent a chill up his spine for he felt as if Allah was right there telling him " Is it not enough that your Lord is a witness over everything?". From here on, the life changed for him and he decided to change faith - from his birth religion of Christianity to Islam. This happened in 2014 and another brother reverted to Islam after a long exercise of knowing and learning the truth which only Islam can lead one to. His new Islamic name is now Firdous.

I have just condensed the entire content of the video that I am sharing now, which is so soul inspiring that I even cried when he almost came to the end of the video. Please watch this video, even if you are not a Muslim, and would certainly feel in the presence of Allah, who is a witness over everything:
