Dear Marleen Salam
I hope you are quite well. Today I heart that you became Muslim. Let me congratulate you. Really it is the best happy news that I have heart in the month of Ramadan
You have decided the best and you have found the right path. Islam has a book by the name of Quran, it is a guide book. We belief that our holy book is the best and no one is able to bring a book like that.
Beside the Quran we have the household of the prophet Mohammad who are the real interpreter of the holy Quran and they are 12 persons, the first one is imam ali the husband of Fatimah. She is the daughter of the prophet. And the last one is imam Mahdi who is still a life and by the permission of Allah one day he will appear and will full this world with peace and justice.
Imam ali has written a book by the name of nahjolbalagha. It is very important book and read able.
Here I would like to mention that a christian scholar had written a book by the name of The Voice of Human Justice. It is an English translation of Sautu’l ‘Adālati’l Insaniyah a book written in Arabic by George Jordac, a Christian author from Lebanon. The book is a biography of Ali ibn Abi Talib. The contents of the book were drawn from the Nahj al-Balagha of Ali. I hope you could find this book and read it.
We have another important book by the name of sahifa sajjadia which is written by our fourth imam by the name of imam sajjad the son of imam hussin who martyred in karbalah. This book is full of good doaa and good saying from our imam.
Mahdi informed me that you are going to write a book about islam it is a very good idea. If beside that you write a book that how you become Muslim and Shia it would be very good.
In the end I wish your success through your life.
Have a good time
Your brother in islam
