A dream tells me to be a Muslim (Revert Experiences)

Each revert experience is unique and mind boggling. We have shared many such experiences before, but the one being shared is different from others. It is the revert experience of Ganiyat Solöye, a Nigerian woman, who saw a dream in which she is been told to be a Muslim.

Ganiyat Solöye, born to a Christian father and a Muslim mother, was always at crossroads as to which religion she should finally adopt.  Such difficult decision making usually erupts when a Muslim woman marries a a Christian. This is something which Qur'an cautions against. While Muslim men may marry a girl from the people of Book, that is Jews or Christians, but women cannot marry a man of any other faith. This is necessary that children normally adopt the faith of their fathers and a Muslim man is in a better position to raise his children in Islam.

Here was exactly the case: The father wanted his children to be Christians, while faith of the mother also influenced her children. Ganiyat Solöye accompanied her father to church and read Bible. But she also went to masjid along with her mother for Islam also attracted her for she found many odd things in Bible like Jesus being son of God or even god himself, or even her father changing another version of Bible from the one previously he gave her.  

And then a dream made her take the ultimate decision of her life to become a Muslim. Please watch the full video of a revert experience below of how Ganiyat Solöye , a Nigerian woman converted to Islam:
The above said revert experience and many more as already shared in our reference page: Embracing Islam: Revert Experiences are simple amazing as how odds and dichotomy in one's previous beliefs and faith ultimately lead them to Islam. May Allah help those still mulling over to cross over to Islam and show them His light of eternal salvation. Ameen
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.
