"A few years ago a professor in Egypt was prosecuted
for blasphemy after pointing out that the Prophet's
mother was not born a Muslim."

Our astonishment here would perhaps be lessened by
knowing the general Muslim view that every individual
is born a Muslim and only diverges from submission to
Allah due to false teachings during childhood. Thus,
in contemporary Islamic parlance, one does not
'convert' to Islam; one "reverts."
