    Going to the Mosque for the first time

    Any advice? I am 14 years old, the parents don't know. What should I expect? What should I do?

    I have seen your post before but cant remember any details if any.

    1.Are you parents atheists or follow a religion?
    2. Do you think they would be willing to accept your choice of faith?

    As for the mosque, if you go spend your time outside of the home with your friends then you can slip into a mosque, the first time I went I did not know what to expect.

    1. Take off your shoes
    2. Plain Clothes without images
    3. Hat
    4. If you require ablution, then do it in the mosque
    5. Take a place preferably near the front.
    6. When the pray starts then take part.
    7. After pray there sometimes be small lectures around 15 mins, take part in them and you will find support from other muslims.

    No one will ask you any questions. When I was at school we used dare people only boys, to enter places of worship, out of all the places the Mosque is an easy target.

    Re: Going to the Mosque for the first time

    1. They are Mormons
    2. No, they wouldn't. I'm waiting to tell them when I feel ready
    3. I don't have a hat, what type should I buy to wear to the mosque?
    4. I'm taking my Shahadah at the mosque, who do I look for?
    5. Is the lecture going to be in Arabic?

    Thank you.

    Brother

    Go to the Mosque and ask anyone who goes in if you can speak to the Imam, they will tell you everything what to do Inshallah.

    Mormons? Thats a tough call I can understand how conservative your family may be.

    Not a cap, even a wooly hat will do, or find a shop that sells Islamic products, if you cant find the shop then a wooly hat will do.

    Have you said your Shahadah?

    Im guessing you wont know who the Imam is, then in that case approach someone if then can take you to the Imam, or wait for the prayer to finish and approach the Imam and explain him your position and you can say the Shahadah there in public or in privacy if you feel your family will find out.

    Depends on Mosque, should be in english, if not then ask someone to translate for you and you will make friends on the way, because its not a full lecture but a short talk.

    Mash'Allah. Only 14 years old. May Allah keep you guided on the straight path.

    Just go to the Masjid, and ask to see the Imam. Tell him what you intend to do, and Insh'Allah, he'll explain everything & answer any questions u may have.

    bro, you dont need a hat to pray, you can pray without it.
    What can my enemies possibly do to me? My paradise is in my heart; wherever I go it goes with me, insepa­rable from me. For me, prison is a place of (religious) retreat; ex­ecution is my opportunity for martyrdom; and exile from my town is but a chance to travel.”

    Maybe, but is it not a Sunnah?

    Also majority would have hats on, so with a hat one feels more at home.

    Brother if you need some sincere advise send me a PM or post on my visitor board. This thread is getting hi-jacked and de-railed by non-Muslims who are turning what is a joyous occasion for you into a comedy show. Mods- Please take action.

    OP just PM'd islam4u because he is trying to get some serious answers for some serious issues and all he gets is a bunch of fighting. It has gotten to the point that he must speak in 3rd person.
