The Prophet Muhammad¬†(saws) is recorded as having said, “There are as many paths to God as there are breaths of mankind.”

Each story of the journey to Islam and the Prophetic Path, particularly in the wake of our modern materialist culture, is a unique experience filled with inspiration, light and divine wisdom.

In this episode of Soul of Islam Radio, Ahmad and I interview a good friend and fellow student of Islamic Spirituality, Daniel Amin Coleman.

  1. What an amazing talk. From Buddhism to Islam. Taking away from the crap we are having shoved down our throats and onto the true value of this path. Beautiful presentation – gained much insight and inspiration. I agree with him on a point he raised several times that if it had not been for sufism Islam would not have draw.

    P.s. I was unable to post on Google or Facebook. They both did unusual things when I tried. Will persist.

  2. Daniel Amin Coleman, thanks for sharing your story. I relate to so much of what you’re saying, and have had some similar experiences. Sometimes when you hear a brother or sister , Muslim or not Muslim , share an experience so close to your own, it makes you feel real and alive, as opposed to in a dream state in which all is relative, and truth is just perception, and God is ambivalent to it all, to us all.
    Where I have differed from you and many other stories I have heard is in the profound relationship and emotional barriers I have faced after feeling certain of Islam. Only Allah knows how great those barriers have been, like mighty walls on the path testing the sincerity of the direction I am facing. Nothing could ever express how challenging that was for me, except the gentle tears that God has sometimes allowed to flow from me. It’s been a paradox that I hope, is helping me keep it real, check my intention, and not get self-righteous, or too attached to the world. I love what you said regarding meditation, about reaching out to God as opposed to it all coming from yourself, and how there was more ease in that. I think your story is a reminder that conversion or ‘reversion’ stories offer an important perspective on Islam. Maybe to some people, calling conversion ‘reversion’, in Islam, sounds arrogant, as though dismissing the ability of other paths to bring you closer to your authentic self. But it is simply an honest description of how it feels to surrender physically on the prayer mat, and spiritually inside. Perhaps even lifelong Muslims experience different levels of ‘reversion’ along their path.
