Arnoud Van Doorn Revert to islam

“I have all faith in Allah to support me and to guide me through these moments," Doorn said. 

AMSTERDAM – A leading member in far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders’ party has reverted to Islam after an extensive study about the Islamic religion and Muslims.

“I can understand people are skeptic, especially that it is unexpected for many of them,” Arnoud Van Doorn told Al-Jazeera English satellite channel.

“This is a very big decision, which I have not taken lightly.”
The news about Doorn’s reversion first came to the surface last month when he tweeted “new beginning”.
He later posted a tweet in Arabic pronouncing the Shahadah (proclamation of faith).
The politician later announced that he reverted to Islam, giving no more information about the reasons behind the decision.

“In my own close circle people have known that I have been actively researching the Qur’an, Hadith, Sunnah and other writings for almost a year now,” he said.
“In addition, I have had numerous conversations with Muslims about the religion.”
Driven by his party’s anti-Islam discourse, Doorn decided to dig in for the truth about the religion himself.
“I have heard so many negative stories about Islam, but I am not a person who follows opinions of others without doing my own research,” he said.

“Therefore, I have actually started to deepen my knowledge of the Islam out of curiosity.
“My colleague Aboe Khoulani from the City Council in The Hague has brought me further into contact with the as-Soennah mosque, which has guided me even further.”
A member of the Dutch parliament and The Hague city council, Doorn’s name has long been associated with Wilders’ anti-Islam, far-right PVV party.

Wilders himself is known for his rants against Islam, Muslims and the Noble Qur’an.

New Beginning

Doorn’s decision to embrace Islam has won mixed reactions in the Netherlands.

“According to some people I am a traitor, but according to most others I have actually made a very good decision,” he told Aljazeera.

“The reactions are generally positive and I also received quite some support via twitter.
“It feels good that people who do not know me personally have understanding of my situation and support me in my choice.”

For the Dutch politician, finding Islam was finally guiding him to the true path in his life.
“I have made mistakes in life as many others. From these mistakes I have learned a lot,” Doorn said.
“And by my conversion to Islam I have the feeling that I finally found my path.

“I realize that this is a new start and that I still have much to learn as well.”
Departing from his earlier life as a PVV member, Doorn expects much resistance in his political life.
“The expectation is that I will continue to face much resistance, also from certain government institutions,” he said.

“I have all faith in Allah to support me and to guide me through these moments.”

أحد منتجي الفيلم المسيء للنبي يشهر إسلامه وتنهمر دموعه عند قبر الرسول

لم يدر في خلد عضو حزب الحرية اليميني الهولندي السابق أرنود فاندور أن يدخل الإسلام الحنيف، ويتوجه بعد ذلك لزيارة الحرمين الشريفين، خصوصًا أنه كان ينتمي للحزب الذي أسهم في إنتاج الفيلم المسيء لرسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم
وقد زار المسجد النبوى الشريف وعيناه تذرفان الدمع عند الروضة الشريفة وقبر النبى صلى الله عليه وسلم، وقال فاندور: أنه كان ينتمي لأشد الأحزاب تطرفا وعداء للدين الحنيف، مبينا أنه بعد أن شاهد ردود الأفعال ضد إنتاج فيلم 
الفتنة، بدأ في البحث عن حقيقة الإسلام ليجيب عن تساؤلاته حول سر حب المسلمين لدينهم ورسولهم الكريم

إن بكاء فاندور اشتد أثناء وقوفه أمام قبر الرسول صلى الله عليه وسلم؛ حيث جال بخاطره حجم الخطأ الكبير الذى وقع فيه قبل أن يشرح الله صدره للإسلام
وقال فاندور"إن عملية البحث قادته لاكتشاف حجم الجرم الكبير الذي اقترفه حزبه السابق، وأنه بدأ في الانجذاب إلى الدين الإسلامي، وشرع في القراءة عنه بطريقة موسعة، والاقتراب من المسلمين في هولندا، حتى قرر اعتناق الدين الحنيف

كما زار جبل أحد، وقال: كم قرأت عن هذا المكان وهذه المعركة وكم أحببت أن أقف هنا اليوم، وهو شعور أجمل من القراءة 
والتقى فاندور إمامي المسجد النبوي الشريف الشيخ صلاح البدير، والشيخ علي الحذيفي، وأجرى حوارًا وديًّا معهما وتلقى منهما الكثير من الدعم والتوجيهات والنصائح التي تعينه في حياته المستقبلية، وتوجه فاندور إلى معرض المسجد النبوي الشريف واستمع إلى شرح مفصل عن مراحل التوسعة الكبرى للمسجد النبوي الشريف والتي أمر بها خادم الحرمين الشريفين

 وفي نهاية زيارته للمدينة المنورة متوجها لأداء العمرة قال فاندور: إن وداع المدينة المنورة أمر محزن، ولكن عزائي هو أنني ذاهب إلى مكة المكرمة لأداء العمرة، وسأعود لهذه البقاع الطاهرة مرة أخرى وفي وقت قريب
