Vienna Muslims Welcome Reverts
Sharing inspiring stories of new Muslims, Vienna Islamic Center has invited a galaxy of noted Muslim speakers and reverts in the first meeting for new Muslims in the Austrian capital.
“Our center is opened to everyone. We have many non-Muslims coming to visit Vienna Islamic Center every day,” Dr. Hashim A. Mahrougi, the head of Vienna Islamic Center, told OnIslam.net.
“Sometimes they are students studying about Islam or tourist groups, sometimes just an Austrian couple who wants to see a mosque inside and talk to Muslims about their religion.
“We maintain a very good relationship with the inhabitants around us including the police who is most welcomed to visit us any time as we do not have anything to hide.”
Dr. Mahrougi was speaking during an event held in Vienna last October 27 for Muslim reverts.
Connecting with new Muslims, the center has recently launched a program series called “Back2Islam Project” in order to bring the city’s Muslims closer to each other and invite non-Muslims as well to participate and learn more about Islam.
Sunday's event was the first fruit of the project, attended by more than 100 participants; including Austrians, Turkish, Arabs and people from other nationalities.
“We want to make the non-Muslims understand that our religion teaches us peace and we are not terrorists or oppressors as the media stereotypes Muslims,” Dr. Mahrougi said.
After warm welcome speech and the beautiful recitation of the Noble Qur’an, attendants stared to share their stories of how they found their way to Islam.
“One day, I have started to question the correctness of this society I live in and have started to search for the real purpose of this life,” said Anisa, a 21-year-old Muslim revert of Sudanese origin who has converted to Islam less than a year ago.
“I continuously refused one of my friends’ invitations to Islam; I did not want to hear about it due to my bad experiences with some immigrant Muslims in my country. But somehow, once I gave him a chance to speak about this religion and it changed everything inside me. I got logic answers for my questions,” she added.
“I was born as a Muslim but haven’t practiced it till recent times. HamduliAllah, Allah has guided me,” said her husband, Samir, who has Hungarian-Tunisian parents.
The event reached its peak that made many attendants in tears when an Austrian young lady, Lutica Hustavova, declared shahada, embracing Islam in the event.
“I am so happy for her, finally she has decided to enter to Islam,” Lutica’s friend told OnIslam.net.
