From Atheism To Islam:
In an interview with Samina Peerzada Yashma revealed how due to her problems, pain and stress she started to doubt the existence of a creator. She reached a point where she believed “if there was someone up there then I wouldn’t be suffering so much”.
It was during this time of her life in Australia that she met a friend Warda. Yashma narrates how at first she ignored her because she was a hijabi but unlike others she never judged her.
Warda helped to answer her questions and doubts but Yashma says “When your iman (faith) is weak, a veil falls cover your mind and, even if someone is answering your questions, you do not understand anything”
Even when answers did not satisfy her then Warda asked her to give her best during the month of Ramazan by fasting and praying 5 times a day. She also started reading Quran trying to understand every verse she read.
When Ramadan ended she stopped praying and believed she received no guidance. But just two days after stopping prayers she felt restlessness and anxiety. This made her realize how during Ramadan she was happy, started her first job, solved family problems and found inner peace.
