LA RINASCITA - Storia di Ilaria

THE REBIRTH - Ilaria's story

I'm Ilaria, now Maryam, and I'm 20 years old. Years ago I was an atheist, born into an Italian Christian family.

It all started during a dark period when nothing seemed to have meaning anymore . I was locked in the house between depression , panic attacks and anxiety , and the only thing I had available was the phone to detach myself from reality, from the nightmare I was living.

So I started meditating, and it went from there research on every type of religion.

The women with the veil fascinated me, their dedication, their tenacity and their faith.

So I started to find out and contacted an imam in my area. I took a course and decided to convert to Islam on my birthday , specifically last December.

Later I faced many challenges, such as my parents not accepting my choice.

I wore the hijab exactly a little over a month ago. To this day my parents, thank God, are making great strides in understanding and supporting me.

I face jokes and laughter, but I don't get discouraged. Allah has set me on the right path, and I couldn't be happier to have so many sisters ready to support and help me.

Alhamdulillah! 💖💖💖💖
