I feel like I made an informed decision but it came from reading about different people's experiences and reading different positions from scholars and muslims on different issues. It came with a whole lot of brief passages from the Qur'an and I read a surah here and there which, combined with the time in Egypt a whole 3 years before I converted when I read about 2/3 of the Qur'an, I guess I covered most of it.
But still, how weird it is that I didn't feel the need to take a bit of time to read the whole thing front to back before making a final decision about my conversion! I'd been straddling the Muslim non-Muslim line for many months, so what would it have changed to wait that additional bit of time?
Then again, when the truth is felt, why wait? When the timing feels right, why not just do it?
What was your conversion experience? Just do it or careful preparation?
