Religion & Spirituality Podcas >

My name is Abu Hafsah Abdul Malik Clare. I was born in Canada’s tenth province good old Newfoundland. I was born without the use of my eyes (blind) When I was 5 years old my Mom moved us to Nova Scotia where I went to a special school for blind children. I left that school when I was ten years old for a “normal” school. I started wrestling as an amateur at the age of 9. Wrestling became my passion. I was fascinated by the professional wrestlers. The way they talked and the way they acted captivated me to the point where I wanted to become the very first totally blind person to become a pro wrestler. When I was 16 years old I read Roots by Alex Haley. In that book Islam was discussed briefly. I was intrigued by this religion where the people worshiped ONE God alone and with no partners. I came from an Irish catholic family and we were taught that Jesus was the son of God. In Islam, their were no such concepts. After reading roots I discovered another remarkable personality by the name of Malcolm X. (may ALLAH have mercy on him) His demeanor and he way he spoke sparked a new passion in my life. I desperately wanted to be a MUSLIM. I consumed as much knowledge as I could about this way of life. In 1996 after a perfect wrestling season of 29 wins without a loss I finally met a Muslim sister. After a brief discussion, my goal was achieved. I became a Muslim. (elhamduLILAH, all praise is due to Allah alone) Since 1998, I’ve been talking in front of people about this remarkable and amazing way of life. In 2002, I became the first totally blind person to be accepted into a pro wrestling training school however, my passion for pro wrestling had left me so I didn’t pursue that career path any further. I continue to travel and give talks on Islam throughout the world and it is an honor to have the best job in the world. In 1997, I received an Arabic Braille Qur’an as a gift and I’ve been studying it ever since. The purpose of this site is to give you the visitor a glimpse into the life of a caller to Islam. I hope it is acc
