Becoming A Muslim.

Recommended Posts

Guest Bratpfanne

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.

 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 ?

 

Its a forum, but you can ask freely and we will answer all your questions and help you the best we can.

 

 

 

2. Are here people from UK maybe Hampshire ?

 

There are a lot of members from the UK.

 

 

 

3. How should I deal with discrimination if I would become a Muslim ?

 

To embrace a new religion, the question should be: is it the right path? is it the real truth?

 

 

 

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 ?

 

The truth should be your no.1 priority, not what religion suits my next job. I'm sure you agree.

That said, I think there are many Muslims in the UK and US army.

 

 

 

5. Is that a Problem that my fiancee is a non-muslima and that she doesn't give much about the Islam ?

 

If she's a Christian or a Jew, its OK to marry her. She doesn't have to convert to 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 )

 

You can become a Muslim just by saying the shahada (declaration of faith) anywhere, even at your own private room. Witnesses are not required, nor a Masjid.

 

 

 

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 ".

 

Muslims feel very joyous when a westerner embraces Islam. You will be greatly welcomed, and you'll find a lot of help from everyone in any masjid.

 

 

 

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 ?

 

Anytime. Just ask and we will all be happy to help you and aswer your questions.

 

 

 

 

well, I hope I didn't asked too many questions and I hope I didn't offend anyone.

 

No, of course you didn't. I'm so glad you joined us. I wish you the best of time around here.

      The history of the messengers: Moses
      The killing of the sons of Mosesnation
      The children of Israel carefully considered what had been said among themselves, generation after another, about Prophet Abraham (pbuh): that from his descendants there would emerge a boy who would cause the fall of the king of Egypt. This news was so well-known among the children of Israel that it reached the Pharaoh, after being mentioned to him by some of his princes. As a result and a precautionary measure, Pharaoh ordered that the sons of the children of Israel be killed to prevent such a boy from ever existing. Under the rule of Pharaoh, the children of Israel lived in oppression and injustice. {Verily, Fir’aun (Pharaoh) exalted himself in the land and made its people sects, weakening (oppressing) a group (i.e. Children of Israel) among them, killing their sons, and letting their females live. Verily, he was of the Mufsidûn (i.e. those who commit great sins and crimes, oppressors, tyrants, etc.).{ (Al-Qasas:4)
      Allah wanted to bless the besieged children of Israel. 5. And We wished to do a favour to those who were weak (and oppressed) in the land, and to make them rulers and to make them the inheritors, 6. And to establish them in the land, and We let Fir’aun (Pharaoh) and Hâmân and their hosts receive from them that which they feared.(Al-Qasas:5-6)
      The story of his birth and upbringing
      Pharaoh was extremely careful in ensuring that Moses would not be born, to the extent that he ordered his minions and midwives to circulate and ask pregnant women about their due dates; so the moment a male was born, he was immediately slaughtered by his butchers. However Allah wanted to show Pharaoh, Haman and their soldiers that which they feared, and when the mother of Moses gave birth to him, she knew she had to dispose of him or he would be slaughtered. {And We inspired the mother of Mûsa (Moses), (saying): “Suckle him [Mûsa (Moses)], but when you fear for him, then cast him into the river and fear not, nor grieve. Verily! We shall bring him back to you, and shall make him one of (Our) Messengers.”}(Al-Qasas:7)

      What is happiness?
      What, then, is this happiness, and how does one achieve happiness?!
      Happiness is the constant feeling of elation, tranquility, generosity and joy. This feeling of contentment comes as a result of always having three states: one’s self being in a good state, one’s life being good, and expecting that one’s final abode will be good.
      With regards to these three states, man starts by asking questions about the self. These questions grow larger as he grows older, and he does not find happiness until he answers the questions which come to his mind:
      • Who owns this universe and controls all its affairs?
      • Who created me and created this universe around me?
      • Who am I? Where do I come from? Why was I created?
      Where will my destiny take me?
