Yusuf Estes [Skip Estes]

My name is Yusuf Estes and I am the National Muslim Chaplain for American Muslims, sponsored by a number of organizations here in Washington, DC. As such, I travel around the entire world lecturing and sharing the message of the Christ of the Qur’an in Islam. We hold dialogs and discussion groups with all faiths and enjoy the opportunity to work alongside of rabbis, ministers, preachers and priests everywhere. Most of our work is in the institutional area, military, universities and prisons. Primarily our goal is to educate and communicate the correct message of Islam and who the Muslims really are.

A very important Christian missionary converted to Islam and became a major herald for Islam, he was a very active missionary and was very knowledgeable about the Bible. This man likes mathematics so much, that's why he likes logic. One day, he decided to read the Qur'an to try to find any mistakes that he might take advantage of while inviting Muslims to convert to Christianity. He expected the Qur'an to be an old book written 14 centuries ago, a book that talks about the desert and so on. He was amazed from what he found.

Polosin Ali Vyacheslav Sergeyevich - How I came to Islam?

In the name of God, the holder of the eternal and endless mercy!

I grew up in an atheist family but from early childhood believed in mysterious and omnipotent God who would not refuse the ones who turned to Him. During some difficult situations of my youth when my own strength was not sufficient I used to turn in my heart to God for assistance, and the situation turned the better way.

History of Islam in Russia

Islam and the Golden Horde

 
The first Mongolian ruler, who embraced Islam, was Berke Khan (in mong. "Falcon"). Indeed, he became the falcon of Islam. He, who was the Temuchzhin’s (Genghis Khan’s) grandson and participated in the numerous campaigns of his grandfather and brothers, including those against Moslems, adopted Islam from Boharzi Sheikh in the city of Bukhara. And he, mighty heir of the throne of one fourth of the Empire which included most of the inhabited world, the grandson of “Conqueror of the Universe“, is said to have waited for three days for an audience at the doors of the Sheikh – a resident of the subdued country! Truly, what patience, what faith he had!
