The mention of fingerprints in Qur'an led me to Islam (Revert Experiences)

Qur'an, the fourth and last Divine Scripture, is perhaps the easiest Divine religion of all. The six hundred plus pages of Qur'an, as against other books of faith with attached dozens of additional volumes, sums up the guidelines for the mankind to know what Islam is and how to enter into its fold. Putting in the most simple words it is book by our Creator, Allah, addressed to His creations, the mankind. It is this simplistic approach as against of multiple gods, that attracts non-Muslims from around the world to Islam.

I have shared the revert experience of many a non-Muslims, who Alhamdollilah, took their Shahadah previously. And each revert experience has a different start point from which the journey to reversion began. Today, I share an amazing revert experience of a born Catholic who could not come to turns with the notion of many gods and a God with associates. So this Italian sister Federica Tomassi faced with such dilemma, started her inclination towards Islam. Though she had made a mind to embrace Islam, she was still looking for something that could give her the final push into Islam, the most amazing and heartwarming religion, where while reading Qur'an one feels likes if Allah is speaking to its reader in most understandable and simple words. 

Although she read the first few pages of the Qur'an and the second Chapter, Surah 2. Al Baqarah (The Cow), she needed something that could lead her to Islam. While she was already wearing Hijab for it made her felt graceful and holy, she need something that could make her take her ultimate decision to revert to Islam. One day, she randomly opened the Qur'an, a copy of which has been keeping for long, she came to the verses 3-4 of Surah 75. Al Qiyamah (The Doomsday):

"Does man think that We cannot assemble his bones?", "Nay, We are able to put together in perfect order the very tips of his fingers." 

The mention of fingerprints in book that was revealed more than 1400 years ago really surprised her. How could someone know of this scientific fact which has only been recently discovered. Naturally no man could say  this on his own fourteen centuries ago. This revelation could only come the Creator who created the universe and His creations.

Herein under watch the video in which sister in Islam Federica Tomassi explains so eloquently her solo journey to Islam. And amazingly, she mentions Tahajjad (the late night voluntary prayer) as something which is the best of all forms of worship.
I do not know whether she would ever come across this post, but I really commend her for literally doing the whole thing of reversion on her own. Perhaps it for such truth seekers that in Qur'an Allah says: It is a book of guidance who have the foresight to find the wisdom in it.  Looks like Allah really chosen her, guided her. Subhan Allah. May after watch this video, other non-Muslims still mulling over to revert to Islam, get encouraged and take their Shahadah, which according to our sister really made her proud and honour to accept Allah as the Only God without any associates and assistants.
May Allah (سبحانه و تعالى‎) help us understand Qur'ān and follow the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, which is embodiment of commandments of Allah contained in the Qur'ān. May Allah help us have unflinching faith and trust in Divine Wisdom and decisions and should never lament for we do not know that something better has been planned for us by our most caring Lord. May all our wrong doings, whether intentional or unintentional, be forgiven before the angel of death knocks on our door. 
وَمَا عَلَيۡنَاۤ اِلَّا الۡبَلٰغُ الۡمُبِيۡنُ‏ 
(36:17) and our duty is no more than to clearly convey the Message.”
That is Our duty is only to convey to you the message that Allah has entrusted us with. Then it is for you to accept it or reject it. We have not been made responsible for making you accept it forcibly, and if you do not accept it, we shall not be seized in consequence of your disbelief, you will yourselves be answerable for your actions on Day of Resurrection.

Reading the Qur'ān should be a daily obligation of a Muslim - Reading it with translation will make it meaningful. But reading its Exegesis / Tafsir will make you understand it fully. It will also help the Muslims to have grasp over social issues and their answers discussed in the Qur'an and other matter related to inter faith so that they are able to discuss issues with non-Muslims with authority based on refences from Qur'an.

May Allah forgive me if my posts ever imply a piety far greater than I possess. I am most in need of guidance.

Note: When we mention God in our posts, we mean One True God, we call Allah in Islam, with no associates. Allah is the Sole Creator of all things, and that Allah is all-powerful and all-knowing. Allah has no offspring, no race, no gender, no body, and is unaffected by the characteristics of human life.

Really the Quran is the easiest to understand. Federica Tomassi was a pure soul when she revealed the truth about finger prints she converted to Islam. I pay also tribute to her and congratulate her as she has entered into peace.
