    Assalamu Alaikum,

    As a converted Muslim, it was amazing that I had the opportunity to visit Turkey: Istanbul, Ankara, and Konya in February 2019 by Diyanet Center of America (DCA) with Imam Ali Tos as the Tour Guide, and the Diyanet Group/Team. Now once again I am so humble and excited to know that DCA, Turkey, and Saudi Arab offering an Umrah and Turkey trip for educational seminars on Islamic religion, civilization and visits to Makah and Madinah to thank the Merciful, the Compassionate gifts of Allah for all these wonderful blessing that are provided to us. Ameen…

    Peace and Blessing,

    As Salaamu Alaikum, I’m a recent revert to Islam. I’m the only Muslim in my family, yes it’s a big deal.
    I have submitted my application on 1-1-20. When my Imam asked if I wish to attend. He was kind to think of
    me and my struggles. May Allah honor me with this marvelous and required trip. It’s 1 of of the Pillars.
    If I’m selected to attend I have a few questions I wish to ask up front. Normal questions,I’m just unlearned at the current time.

    Shukran

    What a wonderful opportunity! This journey should be valued at least $5,000! But new reverts are getting it for $750! This is amazing! Masha Allah! May Allah bless everyone involved in coordinating it, and going. Ameen!

    Assalam Alaikum, Today would make 9 months since I’ve embraced Islam, Alhamdulillah for this opportunity. Sincerely, I had been making dua with the intention of making umrah/hajj and I thought the packages were too much for me to afford with the expenses I have normally. Another brother brung this to my attention yesterday and this is a price you can’t beat. Furthermore, this shows that what Allah wills shall be as long as your intention is solely to please Allah SWT. Inshallah I’ll be able to fulfill this act of worship. La Hawla Wala Quwwata Illa Billah!

    Asalaam iliakum everyone,
    This is a true blessing. May Allah bless the ones who made it possible for us reverts to experience one of the pillars. Ameen!

    Asa,
    I am so happy to hear about this opportunity. I took shahadah last month and have been struggling to find a community to call home. There is not a large population of Muslims where I live so it has been hard to find classes and community groups to become a part of. I have been praying for an opportunity like this and alhamdulillah Allah is truly merciful for bringing it to my attention. Inshallah, I am accepted!

    Assalamu alaikum,

    I don’t know how recent of a revert you have to be. But I am a revert. I pray Allah bless my wife and Iwith the opportunity to go this would be a mercy and a desire we have had since accepting islam.

    Assalammu Alaikum
    Everyday I revert back to the testimony of faith in each of my prayers. I would also want the opportunity for spiritual growth and knowledge that this trip would provide.

    As Salaam Alaikum,
    May 25th was life changing for me. I embrace my new religion and so blessed how it change my life. I’m at peace with myself and others. Islam is a beautiful commitment. I would love this opportunity to continue to learn and grow spiritually in my religion. It’s is the Decree of Allah.
