As a chinese convert, I always face this questions from new & old chinese friends.
” You marry a malay? “,
” Why must convert? “,
” You marry into their family? “,
” Why must you fast? “,
” You must adopt their name? “etc.
When a malay friend know that I m a convert, they wishes & welcome me with blessing.
Once & for all to all my friends ( currently, gym, long lost etc), I convert becos Allah SWT love me so much that he send me an angel ( my dear wife ) to guide me to the correct path to Him. I do adopt a muslim name call Muhammad Mikail with my surname too & my kids all have muslim names with chinese surname.
I fast becos I understand the meaning behind and the greatness of fasting. I am more discipline and better now ( no offence to other religion, all this are my personal view only).
Wishing all muslim friends a blissful Ramadan full of Barakah!
