Uncertain How To Reconnect With Allah
Posted 30 April 2017 - 07:27 PM
I've already placed a previous post, but just wanted a bit more advice, I've basically lead a kuffar lifestyle for maybe 6 ish years and was wondering is it too late for me to come to the right path of Islam, ?? In this time period I've made so many non muslim friends, attending lost of mixed gatherings and interacted with the opposite sex and made inappropriate jokes, nothing I do was for the sake of Allah, for his pleaswure or fear if his displeaseur, I feel as though there is no way I can become a muslims who has a strong relationship with Allah:(((

First, Allah is waiting for you, and it never be late ....
second, I believe you need to read yourself about this subject from authentic Islamic sources Quran and Sunnah ... revise the following and find the complete copy
Allah says in the Quran....
يَا بَنِيَّ اذْهَبُواْ فَتَحَسَّسُواْ مِن يُوسُفَ وَأَخِيهِ وَلاَ تَيْأَسُواْ مِن رَّوْحِ اللّهِ إِنَّهُ لاَ يَيْأَسُ مِن رَّوْحِ اللّهِ إِلاَّ الْقَوْمُ الْكَافِرُونَ
Go, O my sons, and ascertain concerning Joseph and his brother, and despair not of the Spirit of Allah. Lo! none despaireth of the Spirit of Allah save disbelieving folk
Allah rejoices for the repentance of His slave.....
The man who killed 99 people .....
The gate of repentance is widely open ......

I would say, mainly, motivations, be away from bad company, find good Muslim company, and increase your Islamic knowledge
1- motivation, who do you think should support Islamic life style in your area? you or non-muslims ... It's your task, you need to do it, not any others.
If Hidu, Christians, Athiests and even those who worship trees defends their god and belief.......who will defend your god and belief.
BTW, god rewards will be multiplies as much as the difficulties you face in such environment...
2-be away from bad company, as much as you can....tell the time you feel strong and immune enough to be affecting others and not the other.
3- find good reachable company, in the nearest Masjid or Islamic center, mainly to support each other in the learning process and relief life stress
4- Islamic knowledge, you need to believe that Allah is the only right and trustworthy, trust his book and advises in it (which you need to know or retrieve by studying his book ) ..... be confident that he will help and support you as long as you are trying to get nearer to him.
may Allah make it easy for you and every Muslim on this earth
