I am Jewish and
converting to Islam, not bacause Judaism is similair to Judaism but because
Islam is the Rational choice. I wanted to baleive the Torah is true and like
most Jews i tried to block out reality, thinking if i ignore the Quranic
revelation it would go away and the fact the Quran mentions facts like, the
expansion of the universe occurs, the universe was formed with a big bang and
the planets by the contraction of early gases.
I pretended it didnt
matter that my religion was, to be honest little more than a collage of
fragments of cooked up false albeit well meaning ideas, Adam you objectively
look at Judaism and Islam, not as a Jew but as am intellectual, bacause Islam is
the Rational and intellectual choice. I still hold prejudices that Muslims are
uncultured compared to sophisticated Jews and that it would be grea to live in
Israel. But Islam is the truth, Ha Emet.
The reasom most Frum or orthadox Jews dont become Muslim is
because of ignorance, prejudice and an active desire to disbeleive in Islam, if
it wasnt for the scientific proof in the Quran and hadith, i would have quite
happily dismissed it as a pale imitation of Judaism, i gain a great
sattisfaction thinking i am from HaShems 1 chosen nation and that i am better
than the rest of the world and especially the Ishamaelites but the truth is Our
God set up his final prophet as an Arab. now it took me a long time to accept
that God gave the final prophet hood to an Ishamelite but as i am objective i
had to swallow my pride and accept it.
I miss Judaism sooooo
much, waering my Tzit Tzit and my Yarmulka, spending countless hours studying
the amazing and fascinating parables, stories and teachings of the Talmud,
maimonides, Baal haturim, Kli yaakov, Rashi and the other insightfull torah
commentators, but on outside evaluation i know that although i truly loved these
books there foundation was not on Gods true word.
Jews everywhere need
an objective re-evaluation of the Tanakh and the Quran forgeting racism and
prejudice and i think the results will be pleasing.
