    Among the reverts I met only some Christians had previously a strong religious conviction, the rest: Hindus, Jews, atheists did not really have a strong opinion on religion.

    Indeed, I noticed this as well. Perhaps the reason is that we former Christians had more of a spiritual belief and emotional element, which made us more susceptible to approach Islam through such a conviction. So hence it was not hard for us to see the logical truth in the Islamic conception of the Divine, the character of the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu 'alaihi wa salam) as a firm proof of the Seal of Prophethood, and the Holy Qur'an as the completion and culmination of the distorted Bible. I cannot comment much on Hindus, but a surprising number of Jews are actually atheists or agnostics while the religion itself strikes me as far more legalistic than spiritual. As for atheists, then they have a negative psychology - defined by what they don't believe rather than what they do believe - which causes them to reject one faith and accept an other based on personal worldly reasons rather than any religious conviction. Wa Allahu A'lam.
