So, I decided to take Ange's invite to do this tag thingie.
Let's see what happens, shall we?
#1: I claimed Islam before I took my actual shahada. To some this may not make since, but when I started looking into Islam and I was reading about how to convert, I instantly thought "I'm Muslim". So, like every other day I was thinking or saying the shahada. It took me a while to realize that I needed a witness, so on St. Patrick's Day, I took my shahada via Why Islam. These guys are awesome, I even got a little new convert package!!! Sweeet.
#2: When I was younger, as in, like 3rd grade, I thought I was Muslim. Yea, where I grew up (which was Crackhead Central mind you, wallahi) there were a couple of Nation [of Islam] "mosques". My mom attended them a few times and since I didn't know the difference of Muslim and "Nation folk" (that's what I call 'em), I just assumed they were Muslim. I thought it was cool and claim Islam for.... hmm a couple years. Until some strange Nation man was all up on my mom and doin all types of haram shit, then I was like uhh.... no.
#3: I went to Catholic school for 13 years. Yes, it is as awful as it sounds.
#4: If it wasn't for Islam, I'd probably be a suicidal whore. Seriously, a little over a year ago, I was in the midst of a panic attack and one day away from a nervous breakdown and 30 minutes away from cutting my wrists down to my central nervous system. Not only that, I was beyond willing to accomodate my physical needs by any means necessary. :( Astaghfir Allah!
#5: I was Arabic in my past life. This is a strong possibility.
#6: I'm actually 7 years old.
#7: If I don't get to marry my POI (person of interest) wallahi, I'm not getting married til I'm 30. seriously... POI is really awesome. HE MUST BE MINE!
#8: I had crazy feelings for this Bengali guy like a year and a half ago. I don't know what happened, but he had to stop talking to me and I must admit, I was shattered.... *sigh* oh well, ANWAY,
#9: I got baptized 9 months before I converted. Yea, long story.
#10: Waiting to Exhale + Tylenol + Burger King fries = amazing
