My Father was born into a polygamous islamic family of seven wives(Islam limits to 4 wives but some Yoruba men exceed that number). He grew to loath polygamy due to the many family problems he faced. This made him and his siblings particularly not rooted or interested in Islam either. He ended up marrying the daughter of an Anglican Clergy and it was just so easy to flip him to Christianity. Considering that his own mother was a Catholic from Delta who converted to Islam to marry his Dad as third wife in Oyo State, there was particularly no strong family resistance for him to marry a Christian.

Three of his four Siblings also converted to Christianity mostly by marital influence while one remains a Muslim till today.

While my father is not a fan of religion in general. His decision to change to Christianity altered the course of the family's religion.

Religion shouldn't be a division.

I am not a fan of this talks; it always 'talks-down' of one sect.

My father was born into a Muslim polygamous family, while my mother was born into a polygamous Christian family

I grew up with my mother so indirectly I was a Christian but had a Muslim name. I started reading both religious holy book and found out they’re don’t make sense with a lot of scientific errors in them. So I started to question my belief, I was an agnostic at that point

Until I started asking my father some questions about religion but he couldn’t answer. So I became an atheist

To every Muslim converted to Christianity, 100 more are ready to replace him.

2016easy2017:

of course there. there are Christians who convert to Islam and there are so called Muslims who converted to Christianity. one thing i noticed is that; those Christians who embrace Islam are the quite religious, or the truth-searching and highly pious of them. but on the other hand, the Muslims who converted to Christianity are those you could never call Muslims in the first place.
my uncle converted to Christianity but he told me he had never ever gone to the mosque nor pray a single solat in his entire life. they only named his an Islamic name.
am a convert from Christianity.
don't just agree or disagree with me. just do your research and see

Hu a<<<< This is what i wrote in order to save space... Lol. In order for the thousands of people that will open this tread to see it, not to reply but to maybe get enlightenment.
1.Do you guys that insult others religion think you're doing the right thing? Or do you really think it is funny?
2. This shows the ease through which fear mongering and warmongering rethorics has subtly been leveled in this our counter culture society.
3. Nairaland isn't been biased in any way, but they chose to put what you all see on Islamic threads bcus they know the hate from you people that say shit is just too much. And i know they will start insulting others under just observe.
4. Where i come from, where i live ,where i school has taught me that everyone is the same and only a lunatic will find joy in bashing other people.
5. Don't ever tag the billions of Muslims as bad people because of the actions of less than 1% of them. Chai isn't that disheartening?.
6. You will notice that most Muslims ignore the hate comments towards them bcus that's what the religion is all about (peace)
7. I am a Muslim and if i do something bad tomorrow PLEASE don't look at my religion or tribe to judge me. Judge me for what i did, as a bad person I've been.
8. THIS IS NIGERIA A DIVERSED NATION, WE MARRY EACH OTHER, DATE EACH OTHER, LOOT TOGETHER, WE LIVE TOGETHER. SO LET US NOT COME OVER HERE AND TEAR EACH OTHER APART.

The Qur'an can never have a mistake and it has prophecies written in it for over 1400 years and they have been coming to past. The Quran never contradicts itself.

OP: let's talk down about Islam
You: I think I know all about it but Christianity doesn't make sense either.


It is funny how people enjoy castigating other religions like theirs is perfect and can measure up to any human logicundecided. Statsocial, you are only going to end up shooting yourself in the leg with your stu.pid thread.

My both parents were born into a Muslim polygamous family, grew up as Muslims but while they were in school during those days they were persecuted by Christians, denied of all fundamental human rights. There were times they were not allowed to go home for Muslim festivals, they catch you praying in school you're done. They even humiliated them and allowed Christians to teach them Islamic Religious knowledge. Forced to memorize the Bible in sine instances. All this later got to them so when they married they converted to Christianity. Things became so hard economically they had no choice, Christians controlled everywhere, and they were not merciful to non- Christians. Soon enough dad opted out of government job to establish his own business so he changed back to Islam, mum remained in government job so she remained a Christian. But to the Glory of the Almighty today we the children are all Muslims and happy.
"Verily the unbelievers wish to extinguish the light of Allah with their mouths but Allah has perfected his light even though the disbelievers do not like it".




Hope you enjoyed my story.
