A Good Tree Bears Good Fruit

“SINCE MY CONVERSION to Islam, one of the questions that has plagued my heart has been whether I have truly changed. Am I the same old Kaighla, changed only in my outside appearance? Do I handle problems differently than I used to and unlike the majority of the non-Muslims around me? Has the message of Islam, of complete submission to Allah, really permeated my heart? When these questions start to bother me, I realize that the answer can only be found in searching my actions, because a person can say “Lâ ilâha illa Allah” until he is blue in the face, but without having allowed those words to speak to his heart, tongue, and mind, they will not save him.”
