“O Allah, veil my weaknesses and set at ease my dismay, and preserve me from the front and behind and on my right and my left and from above, and I take refuge with You lest I be swallowed up by the earth.
“I was born a Muslim – AbdurRasheed by name. My dad, Bello is a Muslim but my mum is a Christian. Back then I used to go Islamiyah but all I remembered about it was getting beaten. They used to scare us with hellfire so, I never practised.
“It’s God’s design that I will return to Islam. I thank Allah for sparing my life.
“I am so happy I found Islam again because it has given me peace. It has given me direction and focus. I was truly lost but now, I am found,” he maintained.”
