Salam Aleykum. I am new here, I live in the UK and I am 21 ! I am interested in Islam and I am here to get more informations about the Islam. I am a bit scared to learn more about it because I think it is always dangerous to be a Muslim in the UK, because all these terror stories some people think every Muslim is the same, but I don't think that! I searched for a Masjid to go near my City and in my City but these Masjids doesn't reply. When I lived in Germany ( I live in the UK since over a year ) I had a Circumzision but when I wanted to go in a Masjid to become a Muslim I moved to the UK. After a while I lost the believe a bit because here is no Masjid and muslims who would help me on my way! My fiancee is british and not religious so she cant help me too and she doesn't like it anyway. Well, my questions are now : 1. Does this website got something like a chat or message box where people can write to me and I can write to people ? Or is it really just the Forum ? 2. Are here people from UK maybe Hampshire ? 3. How should I deal with discrimination if I would become a Muslim ? 4. I want become an Officer or Soldier in the UK so I am kind of scared that I can't do this job as a practising muslim ? 5. Is that a Problem that my fiancee is a non-muslima and that she doesn't give much about the Islam ? 6. Do I can become a Muslim without going to a Masjid ? ( I would like to go to a Masjid to learn the Quran but I don't think that here is a Masjid who accept me, I searched but couldn't find one ) 7. Would the Muslim community accept me ? Not long ago people tried to burn down the Masjid in my city, so maybe the muslim community don't like " westerners ". 8. I am a newbie so it would be nice if somebody could maybe write to me and help me a bit with the website and with my way to Islam, I am not sure I am doing the right thing ? well, I hope I didn't asked too many questions and I hope I didn't offend anyone.
Saracen21stC posted a topic in SportsWe must embrace religion, says Newcastle boss Pardew as he considers introducing prayer room By Bob Cass PUBLISHED: 22:35 GMT, 5 May 2012 | UPDATED: 22:35 GMT, 5 May 2012 Newcastle are ready to unleash the power of prayer on the Premier League, with plans for a dedicated religious room for three key players who have lit up their season. Papiss Cisse, Demba Ba and Hatem Ben Arfa are devout Muslims and they could play a key role on Sunday when Newcastle host Manchester City with the dreams of both clubs in the balance. United want to secure a berth in Europe and City want to clinch their first title since 1968. Manager Alan Pardew believes the beliefs of his top stars have been a major contribution to the team’s success, so much so that he has explored the possibility of creating prayer rooms at the training ground and St James’ Park. ‘It’s something I’ve discussed with club secretary Lee Charnley as I think it’s important,’ he said. ‘We look after the players and their religious backgrounds. ‘Even at the stadium, it’s not an ideal situation. It’s something we’re looking at. Religion plays an important role for some of our players. ‘You have to respect that some players have a different religion to most of the footballers in this country. We need different facilities for them. It’s important that whatever the religion, we take care of it and understand it.’ Devout Muslims: Senegalese pair Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba are religious Dedicated prayer rooms are not new in English football although they are few and far between, and the Premier League’s first multi-faith prayer room inside a stadium was unveiled only four years ago at Blackburn. That was as much in response to the multicultural make-up of the local population as to the demand from players. Changes: Alan Pardew has discussed the idea of introducing a prayer room at Newcastle's training ground Bolton also have a prayer room, as do Manchester City who have four practising Muslims in their first-team squad — Yaya and Kolo Toure, Edin Dzeko and Samir Nasri. Other Premier League stars sharing their faith include Ali Al-Habsi of Wigan, Arsenal’s Marouane Chamakh, Salomon Kalou of Chelsea and Stoke’s Mamady Sidibe, while others have Muslim family members. Arsenal’s Robin van Persie, for example, is married to a Muslim of Moroccan heritage, Bouchra Elbali. But all eyes will be on Newcastle scoring sensation Cisse today, especially after the Senegal striker took his tally to 13 goals in 12 games with what has been acclaimed as the goal of the season against Chelsea last Wednesday. Pardew’s pastoral care for the players, who make up the top flight’s surprise package, is evident. Cisse is still learning English, but it’s improving. ‘I’m having the odd conversation with him now — he’s getting there,’ said Pardew. Read more: http://www.dailymail...l#ixzz1u5kVTwTu
