Austrian famed Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter Wilhelm Ott converted to Islam while searching for the ‘truth’ during the Coronavirus crisis.

Wilhelm Ott, a 37-year-old Austrian fighter from Mixed Martial Arts, announced on Instagram that he had become Muslim after reading the Shahadah.

 

“The Coronavirus has given me so much time that I can find my faith, my faith is so strong that I can proudly say that I am a Muslim, knowing God and reading the Shahadah,” he said.

“I let myself be influenced politically. But when I had hard times, the Islamic faith gave me the necessary strength,” he added.

Ott said he had been researching Islam for many years and thanked the fans for their full support.

On this occasion, he thanked fellow Turkish MMA fighter Barak Kizlermak who had given him the gift of the Holy Quran and prayer.

Ott thanked the Muslim community for accepting Islam openly, acknowledging that they would fast for the first time in Ramadan this year.

The great Austrian fighter known as The Amazing was born in 1982 and is currently ranked 74th in the rankings of 615 active wrestlers.

Canadian Youtuber Rosie Gabrielle Reverts to Islam

By Editorial Staff

Canadian traveler and vlogger Rosie Gabrielle reverts to Islam after a long journey of discovery and explorations and life full of anger, pain and suffering. She finally found  peace in Islam. May Allah help her remain steadfast in her faith!

Last week, Gabrielle shared her story of conversion on Instagram. She wrote:

For me, I was already technically a “Muslim”. My Shahada was basically a re-dedication of my life to the path of Oneness, connection and Peace through the devotion of God.

I CONVERTED to ISLAM☪️

What lead me to this Big decision?


As I mentioned previously, this last year was one of the hardest in my life, and all life’s challenges have led me to this point here and now. From a young child, I’ve always had a unique connection with creation and special relationship to God. My path was far from easy and I carried a lot of anger in my heart from a lifetime of pain, always begging God, why me? Until ultimately coming to the conclusion that all is meant to be, and even my suffering is a gift.

Never resonating with what I was brought up with, I denounced my religion 4 years ago, going down a deep path of spiritual discovery.Exploration of self, and the great Divine. I never let go the sight of the Creator, in fact, my curiosity and connection only grew stronger. Now no longer dictated by fear, I was able to fully explore this righteous path. .
As time passed, the more I experienced, the more I witnessed the true nature and calling for my life. I wanted to be free. Free of the pain and shackles that was hell. Liberation from the anger, hurt and misalignment. I wanted peace in my heart, forgiveness and the most profound connection with all. And thus started my journey.

She Finds Peace of Heart in Pakistan


“The universe brought me to Pakistan, not only to challenge myself to let go of the last remaining traces of pain and ego, but also to show me the way. .

Through kindness,& humbled grace of the people I met along my pilgrimage, inspired my heart to seek further. Living in a Muslim country for 10 + years and traveling extensively through these regions, I observed one thing; Peace. A kind of peace that one can only dream of having in their hearts. .

Unfortunately Islam is one of the most misinterpreted and criticized religions world wide. And like all religions, there are many interpretations. But, the core of it, the true meaning of Islam, is PEACE, LOVE & ONENESS. It’s not a religion, but a way of life. The life of humanity, humility and Love. .

For me, I was already technically a “Muslim”. My Shahada was basically a re-dedication of my life to the path of Oneness, connection and Peace through the devotion of God.
