We, Muslims always invite the brothers and sisters of other faiths to the path of truth; Islam. However, as I always pointed out in the previous posts about the controversy and confusions among Muslims, when it comes to the famous and celebrities’ impending reversion to Islam. Status of Islam is nothing to do with a famous person reversion,but we should be thankful to Allah (SWT) for guiding the person to the right path if that person choose the path, guided by Allah(SWT).
The following story is about the reversion of a security guard, Army specialist Terry Holdbrooks reversion to Islam from the Newsweek Magazine.
Allah knows the best,

Terry Holdbrooks stood watch over prisoners at Gitmo. What he saw made him adopt their faith.
Army specialist Terry Holdbrooks had been a guard at Guantánamo for about six months the night he had his life-altering conversation with detainee 590, a Moroccan also known as “the General.” This was early 2004, about halfway through Holdbrooks’s stint at Guantánamo with the 463rd Military Police Company. Until then, he’d spent most of his day shifts just doing his duty. He’d escort prisoners to interrogations or walk up and down the cellblock making sure they weren’t passing notes. But the midnight shifts were slow. “The only thing you really had to do was mop the center floor,” he says. So Holdbrooks began spending part of the night sitting cross-legged on the ground, talking to detainees through the metal mesh of their cell doors.
