When Converts Coalesced

It's strange how there is such a stigma attached to converts with regard to either "knowing what's up" with regard to Muslim social, cultural and political matters and knowing the deen (Islamic tradition) in-depth. I find this strange because not only are many of these converts those with the highest himma (spiritual aspiration) and irada (desire to know God and return to Him), but one the greatest generations of Muslims, most notably all the companions of the Prophet (may God's blessings and peace be upon him), were converts.
