I became a Muslim in a bookstore one afternoon, about ten years ago. I just happened to be wandering through the religious book section of the store when I idly pulled a copy of the Quran off the shelf and started flipping through it. As I began to read passages more carefully, I suddenly realized that I was holding a book that I had been seeking my entire life. My hands began shaking, tears spilled from my eyes, and when I turned to the front of the book and read the first surah, I knew I had found the faith that had been seriously missing in my life. Within a month, I had read the Quran at least ten times, and I still read it every night before going to bed. It has brought me more peace, success, and contentment than anything I've ever read or encountered in my life. When I look back on that day in the bookstore, I'm quite sure an angel was guiding my hand toward my first copy of the Quran.
If you walk to Allah, he will run to you.

Salam, it is nice to read about a past sharing, which has very high level of spirituality. No one knows at what moment Allah (SWT) will bestow you guidance. Therefore, we should ask forgiveness of Allah Almighty (SWT). He (SWT) knows well. JazakAllah.
