    Have you ever experienced burnout?

    1.) Have you ever experienced burnout?

    2.) Why do you think so many reverts have?

    3.) How can you prevent this from happening?

    4.) If someone is going through this, how can they recover?

    You don't have to be a revert to participate in this.

    By the way, I didn't create this thread because I am going through this, alhamdulillah. Sharing your experiences can help someone who is.

    "Had Allah lifted the veil for his slave and shown him how He handles his affairs for him, and how Allah is more keen for the benefit of the slave than his own self, his heart would have melted out of the love for Allah and would have been torn to pieces out of thankfulness to Allah. Therefore if the pains of this world tire you do not grieve. For it may be that Allah wishes to hear your voice by way of duaa. So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it."
    - Ibn al Qayyim (rahimahullah)

    Re: Have you ever experienced burnout?

    Yes i have

    Dont do too much in one go take your time not too slow not too fast study islam and practise and implement just make sure your consistent reminder for my self as well as it still happens to me

    I think reverts may get this as they get so passionatr that they do too much in one go although same happens for non reverts who were jaahil and then discovered the deen

    As i said be consistent and take your time and inshAllah u dont burnout

    Create a time table so u have a designated amount of time for religious studies/ or extra acts such as dawah or days of fasting or whatever it maybe
    Then you have time where you could be doing normal hobbies or whatever it is u do in life so u dont burnout

      Re: Have you ever experienced burnout?

      I'm not that knowledgeable on this but I do have some input.

      Many people burn out because of their "hot-bloodedness" so to speak. They all of a sudden want to do everything and don't have a guide to help them. That's why company and association with the wise and the pious is necessary. Associating with such people keeps you going, keeps you level headed and out of confusion. Insha'Allah, and Allah knows best.

        Re: Have you ever experienced burnout?

        Yes,Major and minor burnouts

        slow and steady wins the race which is something many reverts need to learn.

        Too much too fast and the religion becomes difficult.

        Reading seerah to learn how the Sahaba went from some of the most backward and ignorant of people to the very finest is a very valuable tool as it
        gives a template for how to become muslim successfully.
        Many things that reverts rush into were not legislated in islam for the sahaba for many years,prayer,fasting etc.
        Prophet Muhammad sallahu alyhi wasalam spent a full ten years on just Tawheed and not much else as without this strong foundation others aspects of the
        Deen like prayer are difficult.

        Nowadays reverts are expected to pray five times a day minimum and fast ramadan right from the beginning and that was not how the sahaba were cultivated.
        the sahaba also had each other for support and yes rarely a couple will accept islam together but mostly it's single people with no community support and no support from their family and many
        times outright hostility from both.

              Moderation and balance is key

              If your body is telling you to stop, then stop. Dont overdo things

              You are not superwoman or superman

              Take the deen easy on yourself and nourish your growth. Dont try to do too much in a little amount of time.

              Otherwise you’ll just oppress yourself and fall into extremities

                      We all progress through ups and downs in life, the trick is steadily go upwards, not to be going downwards which leads to destruction, or to be unbalanced swinging from large highs to large lows, which often leads to the same place.

                        Very much so

                        2.) Why do you think so many reverts have?
                        Most dawah material to new converts come from the same sect types. Leads to useless and pompous debates over minutiae. Get the words "bidah" and "kafir" out of your mouth.

                        Also, a lack of spiritual development..

                        3.) How can you prevent this from happening?
                        Avoid debates and anyone who spends their time criticizing all the time. Run from saved sect takfiri types.

                        4.) If someone is going through this, how can they recover?
                        Find a community, a teacher, a spiritual guide (for lack of a better term). Stay involved. Never leave the jamat.

                        Also, I must stress: convert, not revert... that's so pompous.

                          Re: Have you ever experienced burnout?

                          How do you help a revert then?

                          A revert who I knew before and after she took shahada moved away from home to go to uni and it was good in a way because she could pray and fast without her family knowing but hard because she doesn’t necessarily have Muslim friends where she is. I lost contact with her for a while and then reconnected with her in Ramadan. She said she wasn’t fasting because she wanted to revise for exams. I advised her to fast as tactfully as I could but she got a little defensive and I think she thought I was judging her. I told her I understand it is hard to incorporate these things into her life and hoped Allah would make it easy for her. I felt bad because I didn’t know how to strike the balance between being understanding but also not making out like not completing obligatory acts is ok. I think about her and worry I might have failed her a bit. So how are you supposed to support reverts esp if you don’t get to see them because they live away?
                          And when it is said to them, "Do not cause corruption on the earth," they say, "We are but reformers." (11) Unquestionably, it is they who are the corrupters, but they perceive [it] not. (12) - Surat al-Baqarah

                            Idk. I know that fasting is really hard for converts. Maybe advise her to practice fasting before Ramadan?
