Masha'Allah my little niece who is 13 years old has been watching me pray for time now and whenever its prayer time she comes and stays in the room with me cos she says just listening to me gives her peace. so tonight at isha time she said to me aunty when is the next prayer and i said in half an hour...
then she goes can i pray with you, and my heart smiled i was so happy and thanked the Almighty. so i can see that it will eventually happen Insha'Allah.
but what i initially was talking about was feeling alienated as in regards my views religion wise, you see we are persian and persians that migrated to the west decades ago are known as the so called modern muslims :skeleton:
so religion is never a number one priority in their lives, when i first started to get more into religion and religious my family were spooked out but now they have realised that through everything that I have been going through for the past couple of years it was my submission to God and Him that saved me so guess im a constant reminder for them.
