Indonesian Komang Tri Astari converted to Islam at the office of the Mufti in Zonguldak, Turkey. During the conversion ceremony, the Mufti Selahattin Emen instructed some basic information about Islam and Astari recited the kalima shahadah (Islamic testimony of faith). Astari changed her name as Tuana after becoming a Muslim. The Mufti also presented Tuana the Qur’an and also some Islamic books.
Her husband Ferdi Kabacalı explained that he and his family never asked Astari to convert to Islam before and explained her conversian as: “One day she told me that she would like to become a Muslim. She voluntarily and delightedly converted to Islam. This is so pleasing for me.”
