    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
    thank you sis:). I just accepted Islam (after purifying my body).

    yes it was a difficult decision, one day i have to tell my family members that i am a Muslim.

    people here are very helpful and i am very thankful that this community is here to help me out when ever i need help.

So pour out your desires in prostration and forget about it and know; that verily Allah does not forget it."

        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 ?

              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.

                            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.
                            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
