Muslim of Scandinavian origin

By Abdul Wahid Pedersen / 21 Aug 2013

As a Muslim of Scandinavian origin I am often met with the question of why I became a Muslim. Yes, I even ask myself from time to time, why Allah had picked me, out of the multitude of people, and brought me to this blessed path of Islam.
