    New Here, Thinking About Converting To Islam (Need Help)

    hey there,

    i am from North India, i am 19 and i belong to Kshatriya Caste.basically we are Aryan warrior Caste and our job is to Rule,Protect and fight wars.

    i started to learning abput Islam when i was 13 and i must admit that i hated islam when i was young i used to think that Muslims are not good people (due to propaganda) and i also hated Muslims for some times. but after becoming an Teenager i started to learn about Islam and i started to slowly follow Islam, my current religion is Highly complicated Religion, it's mixture of Native Faith and Aryan Faith.


    i dont like Idol worshiping, it just dont feel right. even according to oldest Hindu religious book Rig Veda, god is only one and we are not allowed to idol worship him. so naturally after learning that i also started to accept that there is only 1 supreme god and we should only worship him directly (not by pics,idols etc etc.) i am a history buff so i learned most of Islamic History mas well. (ottoman and Mughal are my Fave Empires in the world history.) I also watched tons of Islamic documentaries and short films on YouTube and after researching about Islam for almost 5 years now i am sure that that there is not god but Allah(supreme god) and Prophet Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. now i think i am ready to Accept Islam but i still have few Questions Regarding Islam and Islamic culture(way of life). please answers the following question if you have free time. your answers can really help me.

    1) can a Indian who's from Kshatriya caste convert to Islam ? i mean my ancestors as warriors and kings always fought against Islam.

    2) can i retain my Sanskrit based name After Accepting Islam?

    3) i can not pray 5 times per day because i have very busy lifestyle, 2-3 times a day is Acceptable ?

    4) all people i know are Hindus and what should i do if i have to visit Temple ? am i allowed to pray to Gods/Idols after becoming a muslim ?

    5) will people who are Born Muslims will Accept me as a Muslim ?

    6) how can i Accept Islam ? whats the process of becoming a Sunni Muslim ? (i want to become a Sunni Muslim)

    7) now, i cant fast, i am a big guy but due to my eating habits and other limitations i fell sick and loose my weight rapidly if i fast even tho i Lift weight. so an i eat at month of Ramadan ?

    I am really looking forward to becoming a Muslim. I am waiting for your answers and i will notify you guys about my decision in next few hours.

    and Mods please transfer this topic to sutible forum if i posted this in wrong section. Thanks

    Welcome brother

    If you believe Islam is true you should embrace islam without delay as we don't know when the angel of death will come

    All you have to do is say with your tounge and believe in your heart the following ash hadu anla ilaha illalahu wa ash hadu Anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluh (I bear witness there is none worthy of worship but Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad (sallaho alayhi wa sallam ) is his servant and messenger

    You can read this to yourself or in a mosque with witnesses

    As for your questions
    1, yes no problem
    2,depends what your name means. If it is based on idolatry you'll have to change it
    3. No fivetimes is compulsory. I'm a convert myself and I know initially it seems daunting but it's actually pretty easy Alhamdulilah once you get used to it
    4. No. Idolatry is the biggest sin in Islam so much so if one dies upon it they will never be forgiven. Under no circumstances can you worship a false god or idol
    5, yes and no. Islamically speaking you should be accepted with open arms but there are some cultural Muslims who may not do so
    6, by saying the testification of faith I mentioned above
    7, if for medical reasons you can't fast you can feed a poor person instead

    Welcome and receive the glad tidings that the one who enters Islam has all his past sins forgiven
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.
    "Whoever intends eternal happiness, then let him hold tight to the threshold of servitude.” ibn Taymiyyah.

    1) Some of the best muslims like Umar ibn Khattab(Ra) and Khalid bin Walid (Ra) initially fought against islam but they eventually converted. So there's no problem.

    2) I don't think there's a problem with that.

    3&4) We have 5 basic pillars of Islam which include praying to Allah 5 times a day and even more importantly the belief in the Oneness of Allah. Hence, praying towards idols is strictly prohibited. There's also Zakah, Hajj and Fasting.

    5) I'm sure they will. I could be wrong.

    6) You need to pronounce the shahada.

    Insha'Allah you will find the brothers here very helpful.
    I just found your post very beautiful and heart warming.
    Every time I see someone coming to Islam it's a massive wake up call for me to see the blessings of Islam every time.

    You may find things difficult as the start but slowly and with patients it will become easier.. I think your first step should be becoming a Muslim and everything else will fall into place.

    May Allah Azzawajel make it easy for you

    Speaking about history, there are even more amazing parts of islamic history.

    No mention of islamic history can be complete without Khalid bn Walid's victory over the Byzantines where 25,000 muslims defeated an army of 140,000 romans.

    How does that work? Forbid someone from following a religion?

    Although we fast, some of us end up eating more in Iftar than what we would eat normally.

    That's a bad habit btw.

    You didn't get the point. So let me put it in reverse.

    If someone from a muslim family considers changing his religion, it's quite obvious that the family won't approve of it and will not accept his conversion.

    But it's a good thing that hindus are still zealous, that means when they convert to Islam they will also defend Islam with the same zeal.

    Well thats not a good comparison since islam is the truth
    My parents didnt know i was a muslim the first year i was one and since the moment they came to know until now our relationship went sour, but i am muslim Alhamdulillah
    If i would have asked my mum can i be a muslim and waited for her permission i will die a kafir

    that's bad, brahmins still accept conversation and maybe left converts on their own (excommunication), in my community converts usually gets killed or gets excommunicated by whole community.

    can you give me link to her thread ?

    people here are very helpful and i am very thankful that this community is here to help me out when ever i need help.
    It's probably better not to tell them while you live with them.

    Well hindus also think their religion is the truth, so the reaction will be same.

    It's about the lack of acceptance from the community.

    No.

    The mongols who sakced Baghdad- the Ilkhanate accepted Islam much later.

    A part of the mongols called the Golden Horde were the first to accept Islam.

    he was a genius no doubt about it. very few armies were Abelto beat Romans in their own land.

    I know the reaction will be the same but in essence it means that fo him to deny islam bc mum and dad dont like it isnt justifyable since islam is truth

    This one has audio too.

    btw you should first concentrate on the fard(compulsory) salah. Then later on you can try sunnah salah as well.

    But it's a good thing that hindus are still zealous, that means when they convert to Islam they will also defend Islam with the same zeal.
    yeah, my community follows Hinduism with a great zeal. you you can expect same from me.

    i dont like Idol worshiping, it just dont feel right. even according to oldest Hindu religious book Rig Veda, god is only one and we are not allowed to idol worship him. so naturally after learning that i also started to accept that there is only 1 supreme god and we should only worship him directly (not by pics,idols etc etc.) i am a history buff so i learned most of Islamic History mas well. (ottoman and Mughal are my Fave Empires in the world history.) I also watched tons of Islamic documentaries and short films on YouTube and after researching about Islam for almost 5 years now i am sure that that there is not god but Allah(supreme god) and Prophet Mohammed is the messenger of Allah. now i think i am ready to Accept Islam but i still have few Questions Regarding Islam and Islamic culture(way of life). please answers the following question if you have free time. your answers can really help me.

    1) can a Indian who's from Kshatriya caste convert to Islam ? i mean my ancestors as warriors and kings always fought against Islam.

    2) can i retain my Sanskrit based name After Accepting Islam?

    3) i can not pray 5 times per day because i have very busy lifestyle, 2-3 times a day is Acceptable ?

    4) all people i know are Hindus and what should i do if i have to visit Temple ? am i allowed to pray to Gods/Idols after becoming a muslim ?

    5) will people who are Born Muslims will Accept me as a Muslim ?

    6) how can i Accept Islam ? whats the process of becoming a Sunni Muslim ? (i want to become a Sunni Muslim)

    7) now, i cant fast, i am a big guy but due to my eating habits and other limitations i fell sick and loose my weight rapidly if i fast even tho i Lift weight. so an i eat at month of Ramadan ?

    I am really looking forward to becoming a Muslim. I am waiting for your answers and i will notify you guys about my decision in next few hours.

    and Mods please transfer this topic to sutible forum if i posted this in wrong section. Thanks
    Welcome to Islam brother. May Allah make it easy for you. Ameen.
