Mia also expressed her experience of embracing Islam. She asserted that she feels content after becoming a Muslim.

“There is a reason why Islam is my fate. When I have nightmares, I pray following the Islamic way in my dreams. I always seek for Allah in my dreams,” explained Mia.



She continued, “I’ve ‘found’ Allah in my dreams, but I cannot hide my beliefs by having a different religion. No matter what, I can’t go the other way,” to which Daud added, “Even if you go the other way, you will return to (Islam) in the end.”
