Revert Experiences: I tried Every Faith and Ended up Converting to Islam

Many years ago when I started writing this blog, my sole aim was to know and share why non Muslims revert to Islam. What have been their thrust of search and queries that were answered by reading Qur'an and listening to some of the eminent scholars of Islam of the time. But after sharing many such experiences, I broadened the scope of the blog to explanation/tafsir/exegesis of Qur'an to many other subjects that new reverts would still like to know. However, side by side I kept sharing revert experiences for may be someone who is still indecisive of embracing Islam may find such experiences of some substance in making one's Ultimate Decision to embrace Islam.

Here I would like to recount an account of my great-great grandfather who despite being born to a Muslim family wanted some of his queries answered and left his home and stayed with Hindus, Christians, Jews and Buddhists for a long time. But then it finally dawned on him that the answers he was looking were right there in the Qur'an and he came back fully satisfied of his search and became a staunch practicing Muslim. You may read my account of him here: Journey through other faiths to know the truth

Generally, my observation is that the Concept of Trinity in Christianity is the basic cause of dissatisfaction for in Bible such concept does not occur. Rather in Bible at many places, it has been categorically said that "Your God is one God and there is none other than Him." That is why many Christians turn to Catholicism, Protestantism, New Age, Buddhism, Agnosticism or even Atheism to find their unanswered queries. Yet are not satisfied and ultimately turn to Islam to find satisfactory answers. They are even amazed to find that Muslims are more Christians than Christians themselves as far faith in Prophet Eesa (Jesus, may peace be upon him). Many Christians who finally believe that God is One, but they still cling to the clause that God is the Father of Jesus, a mis norm for a God cannot have wives and children. If Jesus was born in a miraculous circumstance, this does not make God  father of Jesus.  This aspect has been very clearly stated in Surah 112 Al Ikhlas (please click on the highlighted portion to read the 112th Chapter of Qur'an which clarifies Oneness of Allah and the fact that He begets not, nor was He begotten;).

Continuing with my effort to share the revert experiences, I am sharing a one of the unique revert experiences that I have so far listened to and thought it will be very helpful to those in their quest to find the ultimate truth and finding their way to Islam. Someone has rightly commented on the video and I agree with it in totality:
It shows that everyone that searches honestly for the truth will find Islam at the end, not only because it is the only religion that makes sense but also that Allah guides you to the right path.
Please watch the video below and listen to each word and query that one may be confronted with and how and where to find the true Truth and the final answers:
