This chapter covers the story of Umm Mohsin, who is an aalima. Aalima, in a very broad sense that means she has learnt about Islam. Umm went to India to study the aalima course. She graduated in 1988, after five years of study, and then came back home. In alot of respects, the choice to turn to Islam was only for marriage purposes. Umm is a voice on the other end that can hear people out and can advise them the right way. It gives people security and added confidentiality.

Keywords:   Umm Mohsin, aalima, preacher's voice, Islam
