السلام عليكم.
I took my shahada about a year ago and I am new to this forum. Any good websites or online sources or books to learn from as a revert. I have the translated English Quran. Trying to learn arabic and gain knowledge in the correct aqeeda. I also have young children so any advice regarding to parenting issues and etiquettes of a muslimah are most welcome. Jazak Allah khair.

Assalamu Alaikum

Welcome to the forum sis, and congrats on converting. May Allah increase you in piety and ease your affairs ameen.

Since your children are being raised as Muslims mashallah, I think you should start teaching them salaah and short surahs from the Quran. Children learn quite fast and retain the information for much longer than adults, so don't let them feel that what they are learning is difficult or unattainable just because it is in a different language. Teaching them will also teach you a lot as well. If you type "Quran for kids" in youtube, you will find a lot of great videos, but I do think that your support and interaction will do wonders in their learning process as well.

For books, try: Kalamullah
For some basic terms check out this thread: Basic Islamic terms
To learn the basics of arabic try: Madinah Arabic

I'm sure there are more resourceful members here who can suggest other helpful sources as well. And as always, you can always ask questions here on the forum.

Islamic Online University


Zaynab Academy Online - for women only, and I only recommend the Qur'an course, not the ECIL

Also gaining knowledge through reading books, you can buy them from here, in sha Allah
I recommend reading the Ideal Muslimah

Welcome sister

Since knowledge is like a Sea, we have limited time and chances so its better to Prioritize what to learn first and other later
1) eeman , Iklaas
2) Purity since without purity we cant even enter masjid or hold the Noble Quran.
info here in # 6
http://www.ummah.com/forum/showthrea...d-informations

3) Read meaning of Noble Quran and Have knowledge of Haram and Halal in every matters in islam

4) Knowing Salah its timings requirements of actions to fullfill salah

5) other pillars of islam as Fasting, zakat, haj etc

6) Sunnah and So on



















1) Purity
