Abdur-Raheem Green, formerly known as Anthony Green, a British convert to Islam. Appearance-wise, he bears clear similarities with the image that the Christian world has made of Prophet Jesus (PBUH). Green was born by British parents in Darussalaam, Tanzania, in 1964. He was educated at a famous Roman Catholic Monastic School called Ampleforth College and went on to study history in the London University. However, he left his education unfinished. Green was dissatisfied with Christianity since the age of eight, and eventually he left that religion. He practiced Buddhism for nearly three years though he never formally embraced it. Gradually Abdur-Raheem Green started to study the Qur’an, and this gave him an immediate attraction towards Islam, and he accepted the religion in 1988.
