That experience of deep self-examination and connecting to God, to the Spirit helped me come out of the closet as a gay man. And those two experiences together, becoming Christian and becoming gay sort of changed my whole Excel spreadsheet for life. In Islam the relationship between the individual and God is direct, you need no intercession. You don’t need an Imam, you don’t need a Sheikh you don’t need a Mullah. It’s between you and God direct. If you really want to have a faith you claim it for yourself.
