5. How do you see the spread of Islam in India?
– I feel that nowadays the social media is helping a lot in spreading Islam. I have many friends from different states in India, they help in learning many things, alhamdulillah for them all, everyone is using mobile phones more, so if we spread Islam through the media, they may get into this and learn more in Sha Allah.
6. What is the most beautiful Ayah of the Quran in your opinion? And why?
– Surah Al-Ikhlas is my favorite one in Qur’an; love for this Surah will take us to Paradise in Sha Allah.

– As I have said before this is the main thing I like about Islam, I feel that women look more beautiful in hijab, as I am a revert, I can’t do hijab now. In Sha Allah after marriage I’ll, I feel hijab is not only dedicated to women; boys also will have hijab but in a different way.
8. What is your opinion on Jesus as a Hindu?

12. If you want to say some words about the beauty of Islam, the peace, the calmness you have found in this religion what do you say?
– My life has been changed a lot after converting to Islam. Alhamdulillah, I am blessed that Allah (SWT) has chosen me. There is no other religion in this world which gives us peace, Islam is the religion of peace.
– When I study or hear prophet stories, I get inspired by them, and I think all the suffering which we’re facing, are nothing in front of what they have gone through. Allah treats the one he loves the most. I am really blessed to be a revert Muslimah.
DUA: Allah please accept this from us. You are All-Hearing and All-Knowing. You are The Most Forgiving. You are The Most Relenting and repeatedly Merciful. Allah grant us The Taufiq to read all the 5 prayers with sincerity.
