    Dear brothers and sisters, I hope I am posting this in the right place but I am very confused and in need of help. I was born into a family with a Catholic mother and a Muslim father. My father is Muslim in name only. He believes in Allah but doesn't follow Islam at all - although he says he is Muslim. When I was a child I was sent to a Catholic school but was punished by my parents for following the rules of the Catholic school even though they were the ones that sent me there. Due to the hell my parents put me through I hated ALL religions for many years. Recently I have started wanting to learn about Islam (against my parents wishes) so I have been learning about Islam online without their knowledge. In the process, I met a beautiful Muslim man and we are wanting to get married. His family loves and adores me as if I was their own and it warms my heart to be part of such a wonderful family. The issue is, he is from Saudi Arabia and needs to apply for marriage permission in order to marry me (a foreigner) and he needs to disclose my religion. I am confused - Am I Muslim from birth as my father is Muslim even though he doesn't follow and I've never been taught how to practise or do I need to go to a Masjid to convert to get evidence to submit to that I am Muslim? I also don't want to hurt and disappoint my family but I don't know what to do as I know they are not going to like me following Islam. When I vaguely mentioned it to them one time they said they I have lost my mind and I am mental that I am looking to learn about Islam. Please advise what to do. Even though my father is Muslim by birth he doesn't like Islam. I am so confused. Sorry for the length of this post. Please help!

    Brother: I think that you were absolutely correct in trying to advise this sister to not wear tight clothing.

    Scientists found that hindu men believe rape is okay because the hindu gods were also rapists, and hindu men "strive to emulate the gods" https://jstor.org/stable/26671430 -70% of hindu men believed a rapist is not a criminal https://ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P

    Dear Dot, thank you so much for taking the time to reply. It's very helpful. After saying Shahada how do I then 'prove' that I a Muslim for marriage permission?

    Assalamo alaikm Dear sister , of course your are a Muslim. In Islam siblings of a Muslim father are Muslims by birth, regardless of his practicing Islam. However, I advise you to say the shahada (declertaion of faith), to re-affirm your Islam. This post will help you say it:

    Very nice intro guide for Muslims. With this everyone should take the initiative to Learn the Quran with Tajweed for both children and elders, as well as Learn the Quran with Translation.
