Top 10 Reverts to Islam

The term "revert" stems from the Muslim belief that all people are born with a natural faith in God.

According to Islam, children are born with an innate sense of submission to God, which is called the fitrah. Their parents may then raise them in a particular faith community, and they grow up to be Christians, Buddhists, etc.

The Prophet Muhammad once said: "No child is born except upon fitrah (i.e. as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a polytheist" (Sahih Muslim).
