Sheikh Yusuf is a convert brother from Texas who embraced Islam at the age of 50 and became a Muslim Chaplain for the United States Bureau of Prisons. As someone with a strong religious background who served as an evangelical Christian preacher, Sheikh Yusuf offers some rare and valuable insights into the topic of the Abrahamic faiths. Sheikh Yusuf now travels throughout America and the world sharing his knowledge and experience with others.
"First, my father started doing business with a man from Egypt. After introducing me to him, my father noticed right away that I was trying to convert the man to Christianity and asked me not to do so in a rude manner. I heard the man say he was ready to come to my religion if my religion was better than his religion. But there was a condition, he said he wanted proof. I told him religion is not about proof. It is about faith. He then said something that really made me think. He told me in his religion there was both faith and proof."
