Islam Is For Everyone                Article 9  

By Yahiye Adam Gadahn
My first seventeen years have been a bit different than the youth experienced by most Americans. I grew up on an extremely rural goat ranch in Western Riverside County, California, where my family raises on average 150 to 200 animals for milk, cheese, and meat. My father is a halal butcher [a butcher who slaughters in an Islamic manner.] and supplies to an Islamic Food Mart a few blocks from the Islamic Center in downtown Los Angeles.

How Does One Become A Muslim?        Article 10

Islam is a practical and adaptable religion. Its ideology is logical and true to Nature. Islam gives clear guidance to human beings for their affairs in this world and the Hereafter. It makes its followers content with themselves in a way that they have no complaints. Islam teaches self-respect, self confidence and makes one self-sufficient. One who follows Islam relies on God; he recognizes that all material things are perishable.
