Recently I saw a Muslims talk on television and he said: "Quando entra en Islam..." Entrar means enter, to go from outside to inside. Christians don't understand that and translate it by 'to convert'. But with conversion, you don't go in somewhere, you change direction. That can be entirely different. The Christian conversion system I learned about at school was meant to make people think the way those in power wanted them to think. But that kills all free and creative thinking. I don't have a good feeling with conversion. To close a society can never be good. Look at what happened because the Christians closed society for the Jews.
