When I moved to western Germany, after Berlin wall collapsed, Sayed Mann, was then 12 years, was the kid who was confused search for identity. His family came from East Germany.

Growing up in a socialist environment, religion did not exist in the dictionary and his family. He tends to smirk at the sight of those adherents of a particular faith, including Muslims,

In West Germany, he saw the situation differently. Immigrants more often found and he was friends with some foreigners.

"I'm not used to the new life at the time," I Sayed. "We live daily with such garbage. Idola we are people of black Americans living in isolated settlements," he said.

They idolize, a man who was once named Sved Mann, it was also modeled the behavior of immigrants. "I did a lot of bad things, including stealing and so forth," recalls Sayed.

Until he finally met an immigrant from Turkey who became his close friend. The friend was then introduced Sayed Islam and succeeded him in embracing the religion.

Comrade Sayed have a brother of a local mosque imam. When the brother gives his intention to invite Sayed Thau visit to the mosque, the imam admitted pessimist.

"I said, 'She? Impossible'. But my brother was determined. In fact he said Sayed Islam will embrace his return me from traveling," he said.

Three months later, when the priest returned home he was suddenly greeted by a greeting Assalamu'alaikum Sayed. "Wow I'm surprised. It is really incredible," he said. "I even had to ask (in the red-Sayed) 'What happened to you?'".

Apparently the priest understands all this time Sayed always looking, but he never-never took the time and tend to ignore rather than earnest.

"He said always believed in the existence of God, I think that's what lead him," said the priest. "I am happy to see she has found Islam.

Now the priest even became tutor Sayed. With the discipline he learned Arabic in order to read the Qur'an

But Sayeed did not want to be called to convert. "There was never a term change in the Islamic religion," he said. "In the Qur'an mentioned there is no compulsion in religion," said Sayed again.

Then? "I prefer to describe as' someone had introduced me to Islam and my religion into it," said Sayed.

When asked by Cengiz Culture, an independent project of making a documentary about religion and culture in Germany, why he chose Islam, Sayed firmly replied, "Because in the end everything is Islam," he emphasized on the meaning of the word surrender.

He has been saying the pledge with the confession of faith ten years ago. Since then he diligently read to learn and know more what the meaning of Islam, including for himself.

Sayed Islam is to surrender the desire for themselves under the will of God. Why would he do? "Because with that later I can meet my Creator, I can see heaven. I am entitled to it and I think that is Islam to me today," Sayed said when asked the essence of Islam o

Since ten years anyway, Sayed perform prayers five times a day. "When you pray you are absent and the rest of the world and all its contents. You membersihkn and overlooking the Creator," he said.

He admitted there was no specific strategy to perform prayers five times a day in Germany. "Everyone can surely find a place for ablution, washing himself, and prayed," he said without a load.

Sayed claimed to find belief after lengthy discussions with the comrades were in one night. "After that I immediately said it wanted to go to the mosque with him," said Sayeed.

When it is dawn and a little child was reciting verses of the holy Qur'an. Sayed suddenly wept. "I do not know why. I do not understand Arabic, I do not know what he read, did not know anything," he recalls.

"But my heart has clearly understand something. That's truly amazing experience," said Sayed. "I'm living on the street gangster style may suddenly cry and do not know why."

Now in addition to peace and order of life Sayed also find other valuable thing in Islam. "When you become a Muslim, you have lost a friend but you get a brother," he said. Immediately, you become a member of a family. It's something that I can not get in the churches in Germany. "
