As a grass roots organisation that thrives to cater for the diverse needs of society from homelessness to simply lending an ear, we are forever evolving in our services. We endeavour to continue being the best point of call for our diverse community.
Convert is the English word most often used for one who embraces a religion after being raised in another faith. A common definition of the word “convert” is to “change from one religion or belief to another.”
Muslims believe that all people are born with a natural faith in God. According to Islam, children are born with an innate sense of God, which is called the fitrah. Therefore, some people see conversion to Islam as a “return” back to this original, pure faith. For this reason, many Muslims prefer to say that they have “reverted,” rather than converted to Islam. A common definition of the word “revert” is to “return to a former condition or belief.”
