1NEWS – Hi, my name is Dio Romano, now I am legally embracing Islam. However, I did not change my name after becoming a Muslim.
I really like my name because it was a gift from my father since I was born. Even though I was born into a Christian family, I am now a Muslim.
The decision to convert to Islam began when my mother remarried to her father, who is a Muslim. In the end I decided to go with them.

However, I am quite happy because I can become a Muslim. Since childhood I was accustomed to Islamic religious rituals.
In fact, since elementary school I have remembered Al-Fatihah. So, being a Muslim I will enjoy forever.

Regarding Ramadan, of course I fast because I am a Muslim. I also really enjoyed the moment of breaking the fast.
At home, my family usually makes fried food, buys rice cake, and makes fruit ice.

Fasting in my opinion is the same as refraining. Because, fasting is not just to hold back hunger and thirst.
