    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.

            Re: revert stories

            asalamu alaikum brothers and sisters
            anyway heres mine (note i have left some details out as there too private to share on a public forum but here goes)

            bismillahir rahmanir raheem
            i was raised christian in a fairly religious family. we went to church most sundays and i went to a lot of christian youth camps. i believed in this with all my heart and as a kid i was terrfied of hell. it wasnt something my parents taught (they werent like if your bad you'll go to hell but the concept really scared me. i hated vice (well as a christian concept of it, used to nag my aunt for smoking and had a loathing of drugs) i was fairly bright and used to go for a school for gifted children once a week. my early teens were fairly uneventful but when i was 14 i changed high school to a scummy rat hole. i fell into the wrong crowd and while it started innocently (i knew most of them from church) it got messed up real fast. i started using drugs and became hooked. all my ambitions went out the window, i started failing school (because i was absent half the time) and i went from being a kid with a bright future to being a junkie whose sole ambition in life was to to take drugs until i died. i started using harder and harder drugs and soon was commiting crimes to fuel my habit. i left christianity around 15, 16 and became heavily influenced by heavy metal music. for those that say music is halaal you have no idea how manipulated you can become because of it. i was listening to a lot of marilyn manson (someone who if i heard he died tommorow i would make sujood of thanks) and i found that the heavy metal was just as corrupting on my soul as the drugs
            then i OD
            it literally felt like dying, probablly one of the most horrific experiences of my life, i was taking drugs with friends i took too much and bam. i was so sick it wasnt funny. i remember praying to god in the od. i was too sick to even remember the trinity, it was just me and god, i was like god you have to help me, and i know im a scumbag and ill probably go back to my same old tricks tommorrow (which i did for a while astaghfirullah) but you have to help me (imparaphrasing this prayer coz i dont remember it exactly)

            things started to change after that

            when i was 17 i got in heaps of trouble with the law, like heaps of trouble, i got locked up for a while and alhamdulilah this was one of allahs greatest blessings upon me
            it got me away from my scumbag friends and gave me time to think. I quit the drugs alhamdulilah, i wanted to get back into religion but i figured with all the bad stuff i had done god didnt want me. ii spent two years on the verge of suicide because i felt so scummy about the things i done and people i had hurt. i was terrified of god, like so scared i couldnt even pray i figured i was doomed to hell and i couldnt do anything about it

            but one day that fear went away (mostly) and istarted trying to pray again. id lost all belief in the trinity and i had a basic version of tauheed. i stopped eating pork cause the old testament was so against it and wasnt drinking anymore. and then i found a copy of english quran

            it hit me like a ton of bricks and cut right into my heart, i knew instantly that this was from my creator. it scared the living daylights out of me and i knew if i didnt accept i was in big trouble
            so on jan 4th 2009 shortly before my 20th birthday i decided to become a muslim. i emailed the local masjid and not long after took shahadah

            alhamdulilah through islam Allah turned my life around, i turned my back on the drugs alhamdulilah have been clean 6 years, ditched the loser friends and started trying to repair things. i get along really well with my parents (whom i had hated), allah taught me how to deal with them. i have a pretty quiet life these days, i dont really go out much but alhamdulilah im way happier than i ever was chasing after the drugs and the girls and the dunya. theres something about placing your head on the ground in salaat that makes your soul go this is what i was created for

            some reverts have these amazing stories and they were like super good people before islam, me mines not so pretty so apologies

            if you hadve asked the christians i knew as a teen, what's god going to do with jeremy? they would probably say god will throw him in hell
            if allah had have taken my soul and put me in jahanam he would have been completely justified but instead he had mercy on this sinner and guided him instead. subhannallah look at the mercy of allah something i will always be grateful

            anyway thats basically me
            asalamu alaikum

                That literally is so amazing mashaAllah tabarakAllah. You must feel so special that He chose you to guide when He could have left you. May Allah swt always keep you steadfast upon the deen ameen. It's almost as if you had to hit rock bottom first and the power of self reflection is amazing. That was so interesting to read I'm really glad you posted it :jkk:

                        Re: revert stories

                        So I was born into a Somali family in Oslo, Norway in the early 90s.
                        my family were one of the first to come to Europe after the civil war and my mum moved from Turkey, to Denmark to Norway and my dad came via Saudi where he studied.
                        In turkey my mum met some nice Muslim couple who helped her get visa to western Europe. She recollects buying a prayer mat from there, which we still have and has been not been washed for 20 years (lol) but she didn't wear hijab until the last decade here in the UK.
                        My mother was a really outspoken woman, even back home people called her 'Araweelo', which was a female queen in Somalia who used to kill men and young boys, a feminist tyrant you could say. This led to her having really outspoken views on Islam, like the 'Qur'an has been changed by men', or claiming wrong beliefs about women in islam
                        My dad, I have no clue about his upbringing, but I don't remember either parents praying frequently as a child.

                        I remember some stuff about how I related to religion as a child in Norway. We went to the mosque when I was 3 for eid and I was really respectful of the mosque and people praying and felt that I believed in God. My sis went to an Islamic nursery school, i think she was so lucky. Cos I went to primary school in England and some of the Muslim students and teachers were really ignorant. They'd say stuff that I couldn't celebrate eid cos I was Black, also madrassahs weren't good at all.

                        So I was a loner from a young age in religious terms.

                        As I grew up, at the age of 14, I took an interest in the Qur'an, I started reading it and felt some much peace and sakinah. I never got that feeling elsewhere. I was always such a resteless girl. I loved music and movies and art, and really wanted to be a famous author or cartoonist lol. but that was just materialism on my side. I didn't get too much attention from classmates so focused on writing and drawing, and used to get praise from teachers for my talents.

                        I loved music so much, at the age of 15 I started listening to rock music, and I can say that it was a horrible decision. Rock music is the worst, because the lyrics are so deep at times, and its quite arty, so its harder to let go than shallow pop music.I still haven't let go properly. My fav bands were, The smiths, the Beatles, oasis, I liked reggae a lot too.

                        Anyway, reading the quran made me forget about music and books, it just made me feel humble and obedient and not crazy. i never did outward crazy stuff, like wore crazy clothes and high heels, didn't date boys but I thought crazy stuff. I became a feminist at 16 and into socialism later on. I just liked the adrenaline rush of it. But the Qur'an dominated that all, I never felt pretentious or had crazy thoughts when listening to the Quran.

                        I started praying at 15, though had to wrestle with music at the same time. Nobody told me to stop listening to music at all. I just was glued to youtube watching songs, and then praying when the prayer time came on.
                        I wouldn't recommend that. cos you wont focus in that prayer, you'll be hyperactive and in a wild state. The Qur'an even says to avoid praying while intoxicated.

                        my sister slowly picked up on me praying and reading the Qur'an, that she started doing so herself. We became best friends and did everything together, I loved chilling in her room and just 'meditating' and reading religious books.
                        The rest of my family weren't too bothered, younger brother blatantly was into drink despite being a Muslim back then.

                        when time for uni came I fell seriously ill. I had this strange thought that I was going to hell, because of my past sins, despite only being 18. I suffered for 5 years of depression and psychosis cos of this, and had to retake numerous times at uni. I finally repented and turned back to the religion in 2013, at 21. It was a sad time, my family left the deen, got into sihr, Christianity and fortune tellers. Mum started saying that the 'Qur'an was changed'. Brother left Islam for Christianity and became really unwell, into drugs, others no longer prayed.
                        I feel like a revert because no-1 cares and takes seriously Islam, they mock me for having hope in Allah. I pray for signs from God and the my family mock if it hasn't obviously come true.
                        The only muslim people am in contact with are my classmates at the Islamic college I attend, and I have missed many classes due to illness, pleas pray for me to get back on track :)

I didn't get too much attention from classmates so focused on writing and drawing, and used to get praise from teachers for my talents.

                          I loved music so much, at the age of 15 I started listening to rock music, and I can say that it was a horrible decision. Rock music is the worst, because the lyrics are so deep at times, and its quite arty, so its harder to let go than shallow pop music.I still haven't let go properly. My fav bands were, The smiths, the Beatles, oasis, I liked reggae a lot too.

                          Anyway, reading the quran made me forget about music and books, it just made me feel humble and obedient and not crazy. i never did outward crazy stuff, like wore crazy clothes and high heels, didn't date boys but I thought crazy stuff. I became a feminist at 16 and into socialism later on. I just liked the adrenaline rush of it. But the Qur'an dominated that all, I never felt pretentious or had crazy thoughts when listening to the Quran.

                          I started praying at 15, though had to wrestle with music at the same time. Nobody told me to stop listening to music at all. I just was glued to youtube watching songs, and then praying when the prayer time came on.
                          I wouldn't recommend that. cos you wont focus in that prayer, you'll be hyperactive and in a wild state. The Qur'an even says to avoid praying while intoxicated.

                          my sister slowly picked up on me praying and reading the Qur'an, that she started doing so herself. We became best friends and did everything together, I loved chilling in her room and just 'meditating' and reading religious books.
                          The rest of my family weren't too bothered, younger brother blatantly was into drink despite being a Muslim back then.

                          when time for uni came I fell seriously ill. I had this strange thought that I was going to hell, because of my past sins, despite only being 18. I suffered for 5 years of depression and psychosis cos of this, and had to retake numerous times at uni. I finally repented and turned back to the religion in 2013, at 21. It was a sad time, my family left the deen, got into sihr, Christianity and fortune tellers. Mum started saying that the 'Qur'an was changed'. Brother left Islam for Christianity and became really unwell, into drugs, others no longer prayed.
                          I feel like a revert because no-1 cares and takes seriously Islam, they mock me for having hope in Allah. I pray for signs from God and the my family mock if it hasn't obviously come true.
                          The only muslim people am in contact with are my classmates at the Islamic college I attend, and I have missed many classes due to illness, pleas pray for me to get back on track :)
                          that was a pretty cool story
                          thanks for sharing
                          you mentioned your family leaving islam, did this have any effect on you as a muslim? like did it make you discouraged or did it make you stronger
                          it might sound funny but when i read about people on this site who have gone through a lot of trials i really hope that it means Allah intends good for them as there are so many ahadith talking about allah testing those whom he loves

                          Sa‘d ibn Abi Waqqaas (may Allah be pleased with him) said: I said: O Messenger of Allah, who among the people are most sorely tested? He said: “The Prophets, then the next best and the next best. A man will be tested according to his level of religious commitment. If his religious commitment is solid, his test will be more severe, but if there is any weakness in his religious commitment, he will be tested according to his level of religious commitment. And calamity will continue to befall a person until he walks on the earth with no sin on him.”
                          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.

                            Umm, I just fele more lonely. And there was a thread I posted saying that I felt a bit ignored in my duaas. Well sometimes, I ask why my duaas aren't being answered, when I'm being oppressed by family, and they aren't Muslim and they still have stable lives, so why aren't they being punished as I being more loyal to God than them? Astaqfirullah I know that Allah doesn't owe me anything, though
                            وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

                            And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


                            أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

                            Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].

                              have you read surah duha sister?, read the tafsir and inshaallah you will feel better
                              this world is not the place for reward or punishment, i was listening to a sheik that sometimes allah loves a slave he wishes for them a high rank in al jannah which they cant reach through their deeds so he afflicts them with hardships and trial in which the slave is patient so he can earn the station
                              perhaps when you see the reward on qiyamat you will wish you had gone through even more hardships
                              this world compared to the hereafter is like dipping a needle into the sea. so forget about whats on the needle and seek after the sea

                              even though you may feel disheartened about your dua dont give up, perhaps allah has decreed for you what you seek just around the corner
                              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.
