Vicars from US, Philippines and Kenya convert to Islam
Saturday January 10, 2015 6:12 PM, ummid.com News Network

Three Christian vicars from the United States, Philippines and Kenya converted to Islam after they attended lectures by key scholars in the Gulf Kingdom.

According to the Arabic daily 'Sabq', the three went together to an Islamic guidance centre in Saudi capital Riyadh and embraced the new religion.

"I have been a vicar since 2002 and I have offered my life to the church…but I now feel that I want to change my life and get out of the vicious cycle….can you help me," the newspaper quoted the unnamed US vicar as telling a Saudi scholar.

There are hundreds of Dawah Centres - the Islamic guidance centres controlled by the Saudi government, spread all across the Gulf Kingdom.

News reports published in the local media indicate that a good number of expats working in the Kingdom embrace Islam after attending special programs organised by these Dawah centres.

It is also to be noted that no force are exercised or monetary gains promised to these expats to convert to the religion they feel is close to their nature and heart.
