Yeah? Hey, sis, sorry to hear that it's been kinda difficult. Some people though well-meaning may push you way too fast and that is never the point of Islam.
Islam is meant to be taken as per our own pace with sincerity to God. So, if someone is like do this or do that and you aren't all that ready, you can be nice but - lol
- do your own thing, sis (winks
Embracing Islam is itself a drastic change; so, don't be in too much of a hurry - hehe
. Also, remember that Islam is supposed to be easy as per hadith (prophetic tradition)
and so don't let anyone make it difficult for ya. Islam is meant to beautify us, and if I may use the analogy, we females can kinda take our own sweet time about getting ready when we want to look good and so in that same way beautifying us with Islam takes time too.
Always, remember, sweetie, that God looks at intentions, and so Allah SubhanAllah wa Taala (Glorious and Exalted is God)
knows that you are trying your best and loves that you are trying your best. So, In-sha-Allah (God-willing)
, don't be overwhelmed and do whatever feels easy.
Also, when we humans are born, we first turn this or that way, then crawl, then learn to walk, then jump, then run. So, we should adopt a kinda similar approach to Islam so that we're progressing but at the same time we're doing so in stages. Baby steps, and In-sha-Allah (God-willing)
, that way we'll mature into our Islam the best way.
And I know it's a big change, sweetie; and In-sha-Allah (God-willing)
over a period of time that change is gonna feel completely natural. So, be patient with yourself, sweetie, and know that patience wins everything. (Winks.)
By the way, I know you're a new member, but I'd be happy to be converse with you via PM or email anytime.
Wishing you the best,
