    Recruited to Stop Islam, Shariffa Converts Instead
    In this episode, we discuss Sister Shariffa's journey to Islam. Sister Shariffa was recruited before college, to learn more about Islam and to free Muslim women from practicing their faith. Initially, she had very little knowledge about Islam, but as her studies progressed, she moved from being a detractor to a believer.
    Sister Shariffa converted in 1985. She had an international upbringing, living in various countries, including the United States, Panama, Japan, and Germany.
    Her father was in the United States Army. She currently resides in Kuwait and is a professor of English for medical and scientific purposes. She is passionate about teaching people about Islam and breaking the stereotypes about Islam.

    Some key points discussed:

    We reviewed how she was to help free Muslim women from Islam.
    Discussion on how she learned about Islam, and how she came to convert.
    The story of her shahada.
    Family reaction to her conversion.
    How men and women were made to compliment each other and wisdom therein.
    Cultural Islam versus Islam.
    How to learn about Islam and the need to exam the sources of your information.
    Learning Arabic and reading the Quran

    Host: Adee Simon Macdowell.
    Guest: Gene Netto.

    Today we speak with Gene Netto, a motivational speaker who lives in Indonesia. Join us as we discuss everything about the topic of converting to Islam.

    About Gene:

    Converted in 1996 at the age of 25
    Aged 50
    Born in New Zealand, moved to Australia with his family, aged 18, went to university there, then moved to Indonesia aged 25, until now
    Currently lives in Jakarta, Indonesia, since 1995
    Is an English teacher, teacher trainer, writer, editor, translator
    Is passionate about education, religion, dawah, charity, social work, speaking out on violence against children in Indonesia, politics, international relations


    Gene's hobbies and interests include:

    Writing, blogging, daily Facebook posts in Indonesian language.
    Personal counseling about religion, education, personal problems.
    Giving speeches about Islam in mosques, offices and homes.
    Motivational speaking (mostly for orphans, teachers, etc.)
    Social work (eg. helping poor people set up a small business, like a food stall).
    Fundraising for Charity. In the past few years, he has collected and distributed about $USD 250,000 in Indonesia, all for orphans and widows, disabled children, and poor people to help them start a small business, etc.
    Learning and teaching Silat (Indonesian martial art) since 1996 (not active at the moment)


    Gene says:
    I am an English teacher from New Zealand and Australia. I have a BA in Asian Studies and a Graduate Diploma in Education. I have been living and working in Indonesia from 1995 until now. My longest job was as a Senior English Language Teacher at a language school for 7 years. I also taught in Private Schools and Businesses in Jakarta. I am a member of the Indonesian Teachers Association, and a teacher trainer. I am also a writer, editor, translator, public speaker, motivator, personal counselor, and often help friends with business development, marketing and strategic analysis. I also teach creative thinking, brainstorming, and organizational development.
    I am often asked to teach non-Muslims about Islam, and also teach some non-practicing Muslims about Islam. I frequently guide and help new converts, and many people (Indonesian and westerners) have converted to Islam after discussing religion with me. I sometimes talk with Indonesian Muslims who have not done salat for 20-30 years, and after one conversation with me, they start praying 5x again.
    In the past few years, I have been trying to establish a free national teacher training program to improve the quality of 3 million teachers in Indonesia. They teach 60 million students every year. I have set up a not-for-profit foundation in Indonesia to build that program and several others, but don't have any funding yet to start my programs.
    I am often busy with a wide range of activities in Jakarta, including writing a book about Christianity and Islam, editing books and articles, giving speeches about Islam, running charity and social programs for orphans and poor children, giving advice and counseling about various subjects such as education, religion and social problems.I have a Facebook page and blog in Indonesian language, both of which are updated daily.

    Inspirational Advice From American Latino Muslim Leader
    This is Imam Yusef's second episode with us. The first episode was his convert story:
    https://untoislam.com/podcast/from-harlem-to-mecca-a-latinos-journey-in-islam
    In this episode we ask Imam Yusef for more advice about converting to Islam.
    About Imam Yusef:
    Born in the fifties, Yusef Maisonet's life began to a rocky start. With his parents arrested for drugs, a then three-year-old Yusef and his siblings spent their early years in an orphanage. But after much of his childhood spent in the orphanage, his life changed when he picked up a copy of the Quran.
    Islam had a profound impact on Yusef's life. Now you can join him as he recounts his unique life as a Latino Muslim, his experiences with religion, and his travels across the planet. From France and England to Jerusalem, Puerto Rico and even North Korea, Yusef gives an enlightening glimpse into Islam around the world, and the vastly different cultures he found along the way.
    From meeting with Salafis, Shiites, Sunni, Sufi, and everything in between, Yusef has learned from them all. With insights on prayer, life as a Muslim, and his Latino identity, From Harlem to Mecca is a powerful and inspirational account of faith, worship, and the American Latino Muslim community.
