In United States Huntsville Alabama Terry Holdbrooks Jr., 29 converted to Islam. Former prison guard in Guantanamo Bay Holdbrooks Jr. converted to Islam “after months of midnight conversations with the Muslim detainees.”

Haldbrooks said “As I got to know the detainees, as I learned their stories during my long night shifts, I came to see the detainees as individuals. Many were men who enjoyed talking about the same things I do, like ethics, philosophy, history, religion.”

Being a guard at Guantanamo Bay Prison, Holdbrooks mulled over the information Army instructors has taught about Islam as he’d watched the so-called terrorists day after day. What he’d been told wasn’t lining up with what he observed, saying,  while the detainees were reading Quran and keeping the daily schedule of prayers, they remained undiscouraged under horrendous pressure, the Deen Show reported.
