    Re: Challenges brothers face when trying to practice Islam?

    When I began to make a little effort in practicing deen, it became harder to control my nafs by guarding my gaze and shaytaan also started to bombard me with waswasa about taharah.
    May Allah give us istiqamat and accept us.
    wasalam.

      1) Trying to find a proper place to perform wudu and salaat.
      2) Wearing pants in the summer here in Florida (I want to wear long sleeves year round, but I can't do that yet)
      3) Trying to eat halaal food at resturants.
      4) having non-Muslim friends and family think you are weird
      5) Trying to find the right crowd of Muslims to hang around with (I'm more conservative than some and more liberal than others, and looked down upon by both groups)
      6) Finding a job that would allow you to grow a beard (when I worked at Publix, I made a big deal about my conversion to Islam (praying salaat to the exact minute, growing a beard, not touching pork, etc) and that's probably the reason why they won't rehire me.
      Dreams feel real while we're in them. It's only when we wake up do we realize something was actually strange.

        My hubby was praying at work, and his boss never saw the way Muslims pray, and he was like "are you ok? is their something wrong?" lol and my husband had to actually explain to him that's how muslims pray

        You are not here just to fill space or to be a background character in someone else's movie. Consider this: nothing would be the same if you did not exist. Every place you have ever been and everyone you have ever spoken to would be different without you. We are all connected, and we are all affected by the decisions and even the existence of those around us.

            Shaykh Yusuf Estes once replied "My religion doesn't allow me to shake the hands of attractive ladies". I believe it was him.

              Secure few moments, everyday, to reflect upon the innumerable blessings of Allah and thank Him for bestowing them upon you.
