Speaking to IRNA on the sidelines of the 36th Nationwide Competitions on Recitation and Memorisation of the Holy Quran, Muri Haski, said her husband who is Iranian has encouraged her to study and make research on Islam. Haski said that she had converted to Islam after an in depth study of the religion. "I am proud of having a great Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and of my religious book, the Holy Quran, which guides me throughout my life," she said. -- BERNAMA http://www.bernama.com.my/bernama/v7/wn/newsworld.php?id=1016988
By Brother Alex (Dallas, TX) 1. Practice Islam as much as you can “He who loves my Sunnah has loved me, and he who loves me will be with me in Paradise.” -The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Tirmidhi) As a new Muslim, you will have trouble keeping up with prayers every day, fasting during Ramadan, and the many other practices in this religion. The struggle that we face, with such a radical change in lifestyle, is difficult and will take some time. Awkward moments are bound to happen, don’t fret. You are not expected to wake up at 4am every morning to pray tahajjud (extra night prayers). If you have problems with certain practices, then gradually work yourself into the mindset of worship. A counselor once told me when I was young, “How do you eat an elephant? Just One bite at a time.” Think of it as one step at a time. Pray to Allah (swt) and ask for Him to make it easy for you and the rest will come naturally. Keeping up with your devotional practices is something that will strengthen your faith immensely. Read the Qur’an whenever possible. Find a collection of hadith, such as Riyadh us-Saliheen, and read it often. You will start to feel a connection to Allah (swt) and you will become used to Islam as a religion and way of life.
:sl: My fiancée from Sofia, Bulgaria has just embraced Islam few hours ago today. She needs to learn from a Muslimah how to pray. She's right now learning it from videos in YouTube, but still I think it's better she gets someone in her place to teach her hands-on. Is there any sister from Bulgaria using this Forum?? I can see there is no dedicated thread for Islam in Bulgaria, that's why posting this thread here.
