Assalamu Alaikum (May peace be upon you).
My name is Marte and I am the main writer for this blog. I was born and raised in Norway, though I am currently residing in the United States.
I converted to Islam in May 2016, after studying the religion for quite some time. It may come as a surprise to many, myself included, since I was not particularly religious when I was younger. I have gotten a lot of questions regarding my decision about why, what got me to choose Islam out of all possible religions, and how it all happened. Hopefully, I can answer a few of these questions on this blog. I want to ensure that the information I provide here is truthful and accurate. I have looked for information about Islam in other languages ever since I converted, but most of it is either available in English or Arabic. I want to use this blog as a way to share knowledge of Islam and my experience as a Muslim woman today.
