Each other thousands of citizens from Western countries, especially UK & USA are accepting Islam. Despite projecting Islam as a religion oppressive to women most of the converts are women, why?
There are many different reasons for converting to Islam but some of the major reasons were:
- Islamic Belief of one GOD was rational and made sense unlike the three god concepts of Christianity or Universe was created for nothing theory of atheists.
- In cases of women one major reason was how Islam gave women rights and duties unlike other religion which oppressed women or used it as a object.
- Conversion among prisoners was because of the way Islam deals with crime and provides a solution. As most of the criminals are from broken family, they lack bonding or grouping. Islam accepts them as a part of a wider community where family & community bond is strong.
- Materialism fails to satisfy human spirituality and this leads them to Islam which balances between material needs and spirituality.
