Peace and blessings of Allah to you. Hi I am a new Muslim. I converted to Islam with the help of another Muslim several months ago. I have been in constant study of my new faith. I have bought several English translations of the Quran for study and am working at understanding the language of the Holy Prophet (SAW). I am having a difficult time with the Salat primarily the Arabic. Any wisdom that can be shared with me as a new Muslim as well as websites (Muslim only) would be most helpful. I am blessed to know Islam and the words of the Holy Prophet (SAW) all praise to Allah, the beneficent, the merciful!

Asalamu Alaikum

Please read this website which provides good reasons about why Islam is the truth (in case you have 2nd thoughts about converting):

http://islamandmuslims123.blogspot.com/

Also, it's called an English translation of the meaning of the Qur'an, the Qur'an itself cannot be translated.

Please also use these websites to further your understanding of Islam:

Peace and blessings in the name of Allah. Thank you for the resources. I have done a lot of reading and I found a lot of videos on Salat. I am now more confident in my prayers. I have to go slow and I am still working on pronunciation. My job has a room for Salat that I can use. There are mats and they already face the Ka’aba. I also have a app on my phone called Muslim Pro with alarms for prayer times and direction to the Ka’aba.

I clean my my hands before prayer. There are times when I miss Salat but I try my best to make my prayers.

Again the link was very helpful in teaching to pray correctly.

Before prayer, it is a requirement to make wudhuu, not only cleaning hands.

Here's a thread detailing the requirements of prayer and a lot of helpful tips.

Welcome to the site. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions. There are many very knowledgeable people on around.

I hope you quickly open up your heart to Allah, it may seem like a big step and it can be intimidating. But you will feel better for it once you make the first step.

Thank you for this information. I have been keeping a pair of sandals in the Salat room to make it easier. I also found a call list in the Salat room and called a fellow Muslim who has been teaching me a lot about prayer, proper recitation, and what is halal and haram. Allah gives blessing and wisdom. Quran 2:231 comes to mind.
