Episode Host: Cedric Du Peloux (Australia)

He describes the story like this:

What happened is that my father separated with my mother when he became Muslim.

My mother is not Muslim and I grew up with her.

I went on holiday when I was 8 years old and spent some time with my father and that's when faith in Islam entered my heart.

Then I went back to my mum until I was 14 years old.

In my heart I felt I was Muslim even if I didn't know much about Islam.

Then I went on to live with my father for a few years and decided to learn and practice Islam.

I consider myself more like a revert as I chose to be Muslim at a certain point.

I grew up pretty much as a non Muslim and also because Islam was not part of my culture back then.

I'm definitely closer to a Westerner than to someone that grew up in Islam.

But at the same time I'm not your typical revert.

I've learned so much throughout this journey that I make sure to share my knowledge within the youth of my community when I get a chance.

About Cedric:

  • Converted in 1996
  • From France, born in Paris,
  • Mother is French native Caucasian
  • Father was from a French West Indies island called 'Guadeloupe'

  • Very into spiritual readings especially about tassawuf, tazkiya and hagiographies
  • Enjoys different writings about the history and state of the Muslim world

He also says:

I'm passionate about giving dawah at any chance I can and also helping the less fortunates whether it is through donation or physical assistance but my main area of expertise are marriage and relationship and also helping Westerner new reverts to make sense of their Islam as it can sometime be challenging for people that were born Muslim and non Westerner to understand where a revert is coming from.
