I went to a Masjid today and said my Shahada after Shala. It was beautiful and a the women surrounded me afterwards hugging me, congradulating me, giving me their numbers in case I needed something and one lady even gave me $50 and offered to watch my children so I could attend classes for new Muslims. Im happy and feel at peace now and the woman who helped me is also an Amercan revert.

How long did It take you to learn the prayers? They're a bit complicated and although I'm relieved from them for about a week I want to take that time to learn them. I've got ablutions, wudu at least, pretty much down and have yet to try the gushl. I used a video yesterday to help me along the only problem is I can't face Mecca while watching the video and reading the prayer nor look at the point of prostration. I know Allah is looking at my intention right now but I really am trying to get this down by next week.

As-salamu alaikum

The important thing in the beggining is not to get stressed. Stress is Satan's game and he hates to see believers happy and is glad when they are sad.

Well it took me a long time because I didn't know arabic but the most important thing is consistency - just keep practicing. The video thing you are doing is what I did and I found it really helpful to know what to do and listen to the arabic. Another thing I used to do was I typed out a sheet with the words I had to say and what movements I had to do and I would place it in front of me while praying so that may be useful for you. And all the stress of learning it is worth the day when you can do it without looking at anything - it's such a relief! And also you are lucky having the women at the masjid to help you - they will certainly be able to tell you how to do it if you are having difficulties. Some of them may also be arabic speakers who can help you with the arabic words.

As Brother Younes said don't get stressed, it's not always easy but try. I used to get so stressed at the different types of prayer and it took me a long time to understand what the word rakat meant. This is a good guide to salaah: (you are not allowed to post links yet)"you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=attach&type=post&id=2596"]you can't post links until you reach 50 posts_you are not allowed to post links yetgawaher(contact admin if its a beneficial link)/index.php?act=attac...ost&id=2596[/url]
