As Salamu Aleiykum

Said the shahada and did my first Fajr this morning.


(very very tired!! hahahaha)


messed up royally though....in islamicfinder.com I looked up the times and i was so very sleepy at 4am when i did this that i saw the sunrise time of 6:11am, right?

So I did the Fajr at 4:53am, then went back to bed, though couldn't sleep because I knew my alarm clock would wake me up again at 6:11am.

Did a second prayer set at 6:11am, then came online after making coffee and noticed that you don't pray a second one between the Fajr and the Dhuhr.:rollseyes

Oh well. Can't hurt to do an extra one right?:giggling:

I did. Last night in my 'how to pray' thread. :)

And to be honest I had no idea it would happen myself. I always sleep until about 9 or 10 on a day off (It's labor day here) and I woke up at 4:10am wide awake for no particular reason. Then I knew in my heart why I woke up. :)

And that is what I thought too. lol

I started learning about Islam before joining this site and even before getting engaged. I just didn't delve deeply into it until I did meet my fiance. I have studied a LOT and now I know that this is right.

I told him last night that I was thinking about this and he asked me 100 times over if it was because of him because he said that is not right. I thought of that too but to be honest, I could never not become a Muslim even if we were to break up. Once you see the light, there is no turning back because it is just false, plain and simple. I cannot be false anymore and I am seeing things sooooooooooooooooo much more clearly now it is incredible!!!

Asalamu 'alykum warahmatulahi wabarakatuh.


The scholars say:

So long as there is no haraam (forbidden) meaning in your old name, it is permissible for you to keep it, although using an Arabic name that has an acceptable meaning is better. (See Question #1692 - Names whose use is forbidden).


Allaah Almighty knows best.



By the way - welcome to islam sister.. i'm really surprised because only yesterday you were asking about how to perform the prayer, but one day later you're actually performing it and you've joined the family of islam without any hesitation.

Verily, Allaah guides those whom He loves.


You're the 3rd person on this forum who's reverted after visiting. First it was Fishman, then Ashley and now sister doodlebug alhamdulillah (praise be to Allaah Almighty.)

Oh I was never hesitant in my intent to revert! lol I was hesitant because 1) I get really really confused sometimes when things are complicated and just looking at the prayers and how to say them gave me a big migraine at first. :embarrass

I knew about a week ago that I would revert and I called someone from our Islamic Society here in Boston and met with her yesterday. She was absolutely wonderful and she told me that if my only fear is that I will mess up the prayer or not do something right then I would wait for an eternity to revert. She said, you know...your time could come tonight. I know that Allah is the one and that Muhammed, peace be upon him, is the final prophet but I was afraid that as soon as I said the shahalah that I would do something wrong.

Kind of like when it's the first day of school and you get the new notebook and you don't want to mess it up.

anyhoooo...I took her words of advice and just did it. I feel overwhelmed and glad and I am still stressed out about not missing a prayer ( I keep looking at the prayer times and looking at the clock and thinking, ok ... what can I get done around here between now and then :uuh: ) and I am very sad that I cannot share ANY of this with my family but still, it is the best thing I know that I have done in my life.

I am a perfectionist and have slight OCD so thinking I may mess up kind of held me back. :rollseyes

Well with all due respect, this site is great and all but I think what did it for me was reading the book The Idiot's Guide to Understanding Islam coupled with watching the video of the guy talking about how he and his wife and a priest converted to Islam due to a guest from Egypt that they had. His speech was basically what did it for me and I will be forever greatful that I was lucky enough to view it just at the right time.

Asalaamu 'alykum warahmatulahi wabarakatuh.


masha'Allaah that's really inspiring. i think that salaah is real special in islam, because even the most disorganised muslim still prays salaah - so he knows about what's going on around him/her, i.e. what time it is etc. so it gives them a wake up call to spend their time wisely.


Alhamdulillah, Allaah Almighty placed it in your destiny that you would watch that video, so we all should be grateful for that. i was just trying to point out that you're the 3rd person on this forum who's joined, then later on become muslim - even though it wasn't actually through the members, it's like everyones known you for a long time already.


The Messenger of Allah (Peace be upon) said, "The world is but a (quick passing) enjoyment; and the best enjoyment of the world is a pious and virtuous woman". [Saheeh Muslim].


insha'Allaah your future husband will be really pleased, but most importantly - Allaah Almighty loves you, and that's why He has guided you.



Peace.
