Of Nisfu Syaaban & Inspiring Videos On Youtube

Assalamualaikum & hallo, brothers & sisters!

So, last night was the Nisfu Syaaban
Nisfu Syaaban or Mid-Sha'ban is the 15th day of the eighth month (shaaban) of the Islamic lunar calendar. The preceding night is known as Laylatul Bara’ah or Laylatun Nisfe min Sha’ban in the Arab world & as Shab-e-barat (شب برات) in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Iran & India. 

These names are translated to the night of records, the night of assignment & the night of deliverance, and the observance involves a festive nightlong vigil with prayers. {source: wikipedia}

I know there are lots of articles about it that you can find online but in case you're interested to read about it, you may refer to my Nisfu Syaaban post that I posted last year

On a different note, here is my all time favourite video of a Christian man, Gabriel who took his first syahadah at Sheikh Yusuf Estes' lecture. SubhanaAllah, it's so beautiful! :') In fact, I can spend hours watching videos on Youtube about the new converts to Islam's stories & experiences, especially those from West

And this is Syeikh Yusuf's personal story on how he converted to Islam after meeting an Egyptian man in 1991 :)

And Yusha Evans' story too! 

It's so cute watching them get excited learning how to become Muslim; pray, recite some surah & wear hijab (for women). Just search for 'my journey to Islam' or 'new convert to Islam' on Youtube for more inspiring videos :)
