Speaking Saturday night at a program at the Rahyaftegan (those who found the right path) Section of the 27th Tehran International Quran Exhibition, Ahmad Jones said the Quran tells one what the purpose of life is, what humans’ responsibilities are and how social relations should be like.
He said he found simple and understandable answers to these questions in the Quran.
As for his familiarity with Islam, Ahmed said he first learned about the religion in a trip to Tunisia at the age of 10.
His visit coincided with the holy month of Ramadan and the spirituality of the month and people’s compassion and kindness touched him at the time, he said.
Years later, making friends with an Iraqi classmate encouraged him to learn more about Islam and ultimately become a Muslim.
Every night at the Rahyaftegan Section, a Muslim convert explains his or her journey to Islam.
The 27th Tehran International Quran Exhibition is underway at the Imam Khomeini (RA) Mosalla (prayer hall) with the motto of “Quran, Meaning of Life”. It will run until May 24.
