Convert cries foul over unfinished house

medium_8pic27.jpgA Muslim convert claimed that he has to fork out about $13,000 of his own money to complete the house which was supposed to be given free to him and his converted family to stay in

He said the contractor who built the house did not complete the house as he had not been paid the cost that he claimed. "The underneath of the roof is not covered, the staircases are made of wood and not in concrete as specified and the toilet floor is also uncovered with concrete," he said.

He said the house costs about $49,000 but the contractor did not receive full payment therefore he refused to complete it. "I have to use my own saving in order to see the house completed," he said.

He added he also needs to fork out money to complete the electrical wiring for the house.

When contacted, a relevant officer at the Ministry of Religious Affairs said the full cost of the construction of the house shall be borne by the ministry.

"However, in order to receive such assistance, an applicant needs to satisfy various terms and conditions such as the need for the person and his family to live separately from his or her own family who are not Muslims," said the officer.

To become a Muslim, simply say the following words:
Ash hadu alla ilaha illa Allah, wa ash hadu anna Mohammadan abduhu wa rasuluhu.

This means I testify and witness that there is no god worthy of being worshipped other than Allah and that Mohammad is his Messenger. Say it and believe in it.

Developments After 9/11
American interest in Islam reached its pinnacle in the last quarter of 2001. The most important reason for this was the 9/11 attacks against the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Several studies undertaken to determine the roots of terrorist ideology, as well as investigations of Islam, have enabled people to learn that Islam is a peaceful religion that enjoins tolerance, justice, mercy, and love. Islam has suddenly become a major topic of discussion all over the world. More and more world-renowned statesmen, political scientists, researchers, and thinkers consider it necessary to understand Islam correctly, and have given speeches underlining Islamic tolerance and willingness to reach agreement.
