A Brazilian ex-gangster has reverted to Islam, taking the shahada (Islamic declaration of faith) and sharing his story with members of da`wah project WhyIslam who are currently visiting Brazil during the ongoing World Cup tournament.

“Everyone on the Street has faith,” Umair, who took the shahada only two months ago in Brazil, told members of WhyIslam da`wah team.

“We just need to reach out to them to reform and accept Islam,” he added, sharing his story on transition from street life to Islam.

His goal is to be steadfast in Islam and to invite others to Islam by doing dawah. (ICNA)
