Very interesting discussion with Brother Jan who lives in the Czech Republic but is Slovak. He talks about his experience with Catholicism and his hesitance with Islam. But then, he realized that he was not critically examining the Modernism and Liberalism and his “fitra was awakened”! Alhamdulillah he converted to Islam shortly thereafter.
Watch this fascinating discussion.
