Swedish woman embraces Islam at Imam Reza (a.s.) Holy Shrine
A woman from Sweden converted to Islam in a ceremony held at the holy shrine of Imam Reza (a.s.) in Mashhad, northeast Iran.

Hawzah News Agency (Mashhad - Iran) - According to the website of the Astan (custodianship) of the holy shrine, Patricia Jenson changed her name to Fatemeh Zahra.

She said the reason for her conversion was realizing that Islam is a perfect religion.



"After studying the Quran and Islamic books, I found Shia Islam the most perfect religion," she added.

Speaking at the ceremony, Seyyed Mohammad Javad Hasheminejad, director of the Astan's pilgrims affairs, hoped that the new convert will become an ambassador of Islam in her society.



He also stressed that despite all attempts by the enemies and the world arrogance to foment Islamophobia, more and more people in the West, including in Europe, embrace Islam.

The new convert was given a copy of the Holy Quran and a number of cultural gifts at the end of the ceremony.
