  2. How Did You Feel When You Realized

    Alsalamo Alikom Thank you for lovely message and advices. I am native speaker Arabic that's why my understanding to quran alhamdo llelha easy... Yes ... Surat Alfatha is very important to be understood as its explain our faith... I have read its Tafseer in different books ... one of the beautiful tafseer written by Said Quteb... try to read it.. it is really nice.. I have not only read volume number 4 from Ihya ulom al din but I read the 8 volumes and I am studying them now... I also studied Omdat Alsalik and more Alhamdo llelha since I revert to Islam ( 16 years ago) I read hundred books and I am still reading ... Hope Allha will accept from me and from all Muslims. Allha bless all muslims
  3. Non-muslim Parents

    AlSalamo ALikom May Allah give you peace and be with you all the way. Well, Welcome back to Islam. To start with by taking you Shahada you got a very big family… all Muslims are your brothers and sisters. All of them love and pray Allah to you. I have reverted to Islam many years ago. My family off course disapproved my action and since I am from Middle East and the culture is too strict as well and the societies being such action of revert totally rejected. My relation with my family start to be very formal almost lost the interaction between them. They start to reconsider my situation in the family and off course the first thing which came up to their mind is to let me get married ( arranged marriage) to a Christian man and that’s it. It was difficult to convince them and still difficult.. the issue is not that they some one to introduce Islam to them as they are fully aware about every single point in Islam .. the issue is they don't want. However, it took me long to let them just accepting me as a Muslim member in the family despite they still not approving the announcement of my Islam, or even my marriage of Muslim. The best way I practice with them which I really advice you to follow is:- I have learned from my Islam that I have to be good with. I have treated them with full respect, by time they recognize that I am better to them when I am Muslim than when I am Christian or other else and that Allha in Islam requested me to be good to them… Now they are fully aware that Islam change me to the best and that I will always be good to them as I am committed to my new and lovely religion. By time and as we went through different situation and hard time they always admitted that I am the best among my other 8 brothers and sister and the reason is that I am Muslim. By doing this may be it will click on their mind, what a religion which change her or let her doing this despite of any thing else … may be they will ask or read about Islam … you never know … Just be patient with them, pray Allah to guide them to the truth and Allah's way. Don't give up being good with them even if they are angry, mad or unhappy with you. Allah Bless you

  5. Advice...?

    Alsalamo ALikom First of all Welcome back to Islam .... I wish Allah will help you in your path... I my self reverted to Islam many years ago .. quite frankly it is not easy for our family accept the situation .. However, their acceptance as of my experience will depend on which courtly are you from? what are your parents back ground and how committed they are to their religion? what is the point of view to the society? how important society onion on this subject and how much they effect your parents onion? first of all, try to learn all what you can about Islam ... ( fro any help please contact me: - evanjoleen[at]yahoo) , then practice Islam as much as you can ... important things are:-Prayer, Fasting, reading quran, learn Islam … .. and off course the believe , the faith are very important. Make sure that you can argue if they discuss you ... try o act as our Islam asked us .. let them know that you are now as a Muslim better to them than what you were .. Let them feel the difference in your character between you as a Muslim and non Muslim .. let them convinced that Islam change you all in all to better .. let them really believe that Islam is the key to your happiness and that you just found the eternal way to Happiness all in all ... May be and you don't know they may accept Islam ... Then look on to your situation ... how dependant are you ? .. can you afford leaving them .. or can they accept you as you are ... walk step by step ... because you never know what is coming up ... Pray to Allah and make sure that he will never leave you alone .. he will not as you know him... he will guide you all the way.... Don't take all the steps same time .. one step each time will help you a lot ... don't make any fight with their parents for simple things ... follow them of all things which did not effect your religion and faith ... be good to them ... but don't leave them effected your faith.... Give them and your self chance until you can move on, on your live the way it should be... May Allah will guide, help and be with you all the way.
  6. How Did You Feel When You Realized

    Alsalamo Alikom The turning key in my conversion is that I never accept the idea that Isa ( PBUH) is God ... from this point I start my study to religion ... I could not accept the idea that Allah just came to the earth ... I could not accept the Idea that he died for our sin ... I always though that Allaha is something different ... unique ... no body like him ... and he will never act like any one .... This is the secret point in my revert to Islam.... Once I read Quran who tell me who is Allah and who are their prophet ... I immediately accept the Idea that Isa ( PBUH) is a messenger .... I was so glad ... so Happy ... I knew from the beginning that there is Allah ... I will find him some where else rather than waiting the church to tell me ... here he is ... he dead on the cross for your sake .... Alhamdo llehha I looked for Allaha and I find him in Islam ..... Allah bless all who believe in him

    Alsalmo Alikoum Fatima You are most welcome... I hope you will enjoy reading the usful infromation posted by memeber of this fourm
  8. I Have Reverted

    Alsalmo alikom Thanks for the advice... yes, it is really difficult for the revert in Arabic country ... it is like you kill somebody ... they never accept the idea or cope with the situation ... it is not the religion issue only they are take it personally and look at it from the society point of view. one of my problem is that we are big family , I have 4 brothers and 4 sister, I am the youngest one in the family ... they are watching every single step of mine .. the things become more complicated after the death of my Dad last December ... Now I have to stay with my Mom to take care of her. I tried to go abroad for study but I could not due to financial issue and the rejection of my family to go abroad .. also, I tried to immigrate but I could not. My concern is wearing Hijab and go ahead on Duwa road, I have read more than 1000 books ( Islamic and comparative religion), I have write some article in comparative religion, I am working with my sisters ( All Muslims sister are my sisters) to finalize them and translate them to other language. I want to be real Muslim… that’s why I am trying to improve my situation and asked for an advice. Also, deep inside feel guilty that I did not do any thing to Islam since I revert… off course I am thanking Allah day and night that he shows me the right path but I feel that I am not thanking him the way it should. Allha bless all Muslims.
