بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم . Assalamualaikum Since I became interested in Islam, many things in my life have changed. Actually I am not fully prepared, but I will try to be a good Muslim step by step. Although I have previously sinned a lot, I want to repent my sins and stand in front of Allah. . Although I am not a born-Muslim, I know that Allah is always with me. Thanks to Him to give me the Signal and help me to recognize it.. Thanks to Him to show me the right path. . There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is His messenger. لا إله إلا الله محمد رسول الله

For those who might not know, reciting the shahada is a religious ritual to declare Muslim’s belief that their God (Allah) is only one (No other God besides Allah) as well as claiming that Prophet Muhammad is Allah’s courier.

It’s also revealed that he will go by the name Daud Kim. According to the former singer-songwriter, he was born as a Catholic with the name David. He added that “it would make sense to get the name Daud”. For info, Daud was also one of the 25 Prophets alongside Prophet Muhammad.

His YouTube channel has garnered a large fan base due to its content that is filled with positive vibes on Islamic culture in South Korea. As of writing, his account has generated over 561,000 subscribers online.
