Three Filipino inmates at a Sharjah prison have converted to Islam. According to the Sharjah Reformatory and Punitive Establishments (SRPE), the new Muslims "expressed their happiness over accepting Islam".
They said they were "thinking about converting to Islam for a long time" because they saw the "morals of the Muslims" and the good treatment they received at the SRPE.
A top official at the SRPE said the establishment hosts religious lectures in cooperation with the Sharjah Department of Islamic Affairs and Endowments.
