    New Muslim support thread

    :

    Figured a thread like this would be a good idea (dunno if it will take off though)

    Being converts to Islam you don't always get the support you need irl so if you want advice or just want to rant you can post here
    @Rifqah @brightest hour

    I'll start, my family is so difficult to be around with Christmas it's not easy. Also something happened with a born "muslim" and my sister that I can't mention here coz I think you lot would start cursing the "Muslim". it's so sad it's not funny

    Re: New Muslim support thread




    I'm absolutely certain of what I need to do now. Since leaving my job because it involved music and the kind if art that was impermissible, I have been exploring so many options while struggling in a temporary job which is really not appropriate either.

    I keep smiling, I can't keep the smile from my face!

    Inshallah.

    I don't really know how I know, but I just know. The idea came into my mind, I prayed to Allah (swt) to guide me and I have been spending a lot of time meditating.

    I'll make some poll threads to explore any glitches inshallah.

    Alhamdulillah.

    اَللّٰهُمَّ قِنِيْ شَرَّ نَفْسِيْ وَاعْزِمْ لِيْ عَليٰ أَرْ شَدِ أَمْرِيْ

    Allaahumma qinii sharra nafsii wa’-zim lii ‘alaa arshadi amrii. (‘Imran ibn Husayn. Musnad Ahmad #19141)

    O Allah, protect me from the evil of my self and give me the determination to do what is most right in my affairs.

    Thanks Grandad, yes I disabled my messages and visitor things and left them open for sisters only as I felt it probably the best way to have my settings Islamically (for me).

    You're welcome.

    I wish the same for you too. Ameen

    Thank you for your concern, Eesa.

    No problem, just very busy at work and with stuff at home.

    Re: New Muslim support thread


    Had a rough week. Went and saw dad in hospital and he's not looking too good (not life threatening but still) get back to mums sad and fed up with how much of a struggle this dunya is. I open the fridge to make a cup of tea and my brother had some beers in there. For a split second I was tempted (tbf it wasn't so much the alcohol more the fact I was thirsty and that particular brand of beer is pretty nice)

    Alhamdulilah I rejected that thought but still it worried me. Thought I'd put those demons to rest, been a long time since I've been tempted like that

    Anyway I log into uf and write a post giving advice but it was me who needed that advice maybe more than person

    Feel better now but subhanAllah this life is a struggle at times

    Sorry to see things are as they are for you, beloved brother. I know I've mentioned this before, but brothers and sisters like you... The things you must go through living as a Muslims in your circumstances with family and environments as they are... I can't help but wonder, alhamdulillah, how beloved to Allah Ta'aalaa your efforts must be.

    The struggles you mentioned that we go through here, and what you've written after that, it reminds of how all of it will feel like less than that split second you mention, at the first taste of the joys in akhirah, subhaanallah.

    And don't worry about that at all, dear brother. Like you've mentioned, it was a split second. Things like that happen to us all I'm sure.

    I understand your point. Many new muslims come into islam and many ignorant muslims try to push them to weird views.I think what would help many new muslims is to let them know that their old christian families are still their families and they should respect them because they are still from ahl kitab. I hate these extreme muslims that automatically think all christians are evil so if its explained to new muslims that the traditional islamic scholars still see christians as ahl kitab and the converts should still respect their families and not become over zeoulous than I think it would help a lot. I personally believe that the meat of ahl kitab is halal and think new muslims should also follow this view because it will help them avoid hardship some of the misguided muslims try to lead them too.
