YUSUF ESTES
:

Di negara barat, ramai penganut kristian dan padri memeluk islam. Salah satu daripadanya ialah Yusuf Estes (dari Texas Amerika) yang juga selepas memeluk Islam, sering menerima kunjungan penganut kristian samada untuk bertanya mengenai islam atau pun ingin memeluk Islam. Berikut adalah salah satu surat dari seorang padri yang ditujukan kepada Yusuf Estes.

This story is about another Christian, a Catholic priest, who comes to Islam. Here is his letter to Yusuf Estes:
:
Dear Yusuf Estes:
:
My name is Father Daniel, living in Miami, FL. and studying Special Education at the local university (Florida International University).I always see this Muslim group of students in one of the halls of the Student Center, offering books, Cd's, and time there to whom it may be interested.One day, as many, I saw them, and only by curiosity I stopped by, and ask for something to read about the whole thing of Islam.
:
I used to be catholic. In fact, I was a catholic priest. I've been a priest for five years in my country (Argentina). But my personal faith slowly decreased after finding out many contradictions in faith and practice within the catholic church. Tired and disappointed, decided to quit and change my life. Since my sister lives here, in USA, I decided to come, and study what I liked, and re-build my life. So far I was considering myself a simple agnostic. Until that day... I started to read, and read and read. And a Light has been growing and growing in my heart, more and more. It has started about three months ago. I don't want to rush, I want to learn more (not only curiosity), I want to get into little by little. I need time to process all this new "thing" that is coming through.... and I still don't know how to deal with it.
:
To be honest with you, I do believe that in Islam is the Truth... but I need and want time. Yesterday, those students gave me a CD. It was you teaching about Islam, I think after that terrible 09/11. I was astonished. I enjoyed every single word. I listened the CD in my car all the way to my house. Today I listened it again. I really appreciate your testimony, may be you can not imagine how much! Well, Allah knows it very well, I believe.
:
Question: Since I am a student (and no money for now), do you know how to get the Holy Qur'an, I mean, a good one... I would like to read it, but if I go to a book store, I feel lost... What can you recommend? Thank you for reading this long e-mail. Respectfully, Father Daniel (last name deleted)
:
Naturally, Yusuf Estes wrote back and sent Quran, CDs and links for audios, videos and many articles on their websites. Al Hamdulillah, it is Allah Who makes Muslims!
