37 Korean Troops on
combat duty in Iraq Convert To ISLAM
"I became a Muslim because I felt Islam was more humanistic and peaceful than
other religions. And if you can religiously connect with the locals, I think it
could be a big help in carrying out our peace reconstruction mission." So said
on Friday those Korean soldiers who converted to Islam ahead of their late July
deployment to the Kurdish city of Irbil in northern Iraq.
At noon Friday, 37 members of the Iraq-bound "Zaitun Unit," including Lieutenant
Son Hyeon-ju of the Special Forces 11th Brigade, made their way to a mosque in
Hannam-dong, Seoul and held a conversion ceremony.
The soldiers, who cleansed their entire bodies in accordance with Islamic
tradition, made their conversion during the Friday group prayers at the mosque,
with the assistance of the "imam," or prayer leader.
With the exception of the imam, all the Muslims and the Korean soldiers stood in
a straight line to symbolize how all are equal before God and took a profession
They had memorized the Arabic confession, " Ashadu an La ilaha il Allah,
Muhammad-ur-Rasool-Allah," which means, "I testify that there is no god but God
(Arabic: Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger of God."
Moreover, as the faithful face the "Kaaba," the Islamic holy place in Mecca,
Saudi Arabia, all Muslims confirm that they are brothers.
