About an year ago, a Canadian biker, Rosie Gabrielle, came to Pakistan with just her bike. She traveled to a lot of places in the country; Lahore, Swat, Multan, Gwadar and beyond. She loved Pakistani people and found them interesting.
“ I CONVERTED to ISLAM☪️ . I get a lot of shocked faces, a lot of smiles. People in Pakistan seem to be very excited to see me on a motorcycle. The funniest reaction was that of a 6-year-old, who asked if I was a boy or a girl when he saw me riding the bike.”
Gabrielle had a hard life but after she spend time in Muslim countries, especially Pakistan, she saw the kind of peace Muslims have in their heart. Surprisingly, that is all what she wanted in her life.
She said she’d never resonated with the faith she had grown up with, that is why she had rejected it four years ago and went on her own spiritual journey.
She said she knew Islam was highly criticized by the world over and had a bad reputation but she knew the true meaning of the religion; which are peace, love and oneness.
“For me, I was already technically a “Muslim”. My Shahada was basically a re-dedication of my life to the path of Oneness, connection and Peace through the devotion of God.”
