On Sunday 16-August-2015 (2-Zulqada-1436), the Brothers and Sisters of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria under the Leadership of Sheikh Ibraheem Zakzaky witnessed the reverting to Islam of a 16 year old girl.
The girl was formerly a Christian and went to the venue where they were holding a program in Abuja and expressed her interest to convert to Islam.
In an Interviewed with Pointer Express correspondent in Abuja shortly after her conversion to Islam Ifesinachi Anih said her decision was in line with her belief and conviction in Islam as the true religion of Almighty Allah SWT and the only way mankind will get salvation.
Ifesinachi who is SS2 student of Apo Resettlement Secondary School in Apo District of Abuja, hails from Okano local Government of Enugu State in Eastern Nigeria, she explained that she notified her parent the intention of conversion to Islam but they disagreed with her later on she made up her mind to choose the true religion.
On that faithful day around 9:00 o’clock in the morning the lady took a taxi from Apo and proceeded to National Mosque via Area 1, and along the road she saw two Muslim Sisters in their Islamic attire(HIJAB). The driver carrying her stopped and introduced her to the Sisters; so they went together to the venue of aThanks Giving program in honor of Hurras (Guards ) of the Islamic Movement Abuja Zone, who, became second during parade competition that took place in Zaria three month ago.
The lady has chosen Amatullahi as her new Islamic name and appealed to other Muslims faithful to remain committed to the services of Islam in order to benefit from Allah’s blessing.
Mal Abubakar Abu-Sumayyah the Amir of Abuja who supervised the conversion to Islam has expressed his highest gratitude to Almighty Allah SWT for making the process easier and prayed for the protection of her faith.
