Each year more than 5,000 British citizen converts to Islam and most of them are females. But why do they accept a religion which is daily maligned by local and international media as being barbaric? Why they accept a religion which is portrayed to be violent against women?
A research in 2013 by Cambridge University gave a glimpse about why people are accepting Islam. It seems that in most of the cases people become attracted towards Islam because of certain Muslim acts and rituals. Such as the call of prayer, the strong Muslim community and Muslims being satisfied while they faced problems.
Many students accepted Islam after interacting with Muslims students, other came to knew about Islam through their co-workers.
In all cases studying Quran was the common thing, they all read Quran and were inspired how Islam combines the whole human race into one community without any consideration of colour, race or gender.
