Isolated, its hard for new muslims to meet new people and actually become close to them. Its easy to meet people and become acquainted with them but its rarely anything more than that.
2. Did you receive enough help from fellow muslims or could they have done more and in what way?
No i didn't recieve any help. There should be classes and programs for new muslims that are at a suitable time and place, if not they should offer to teach them all the basics etc.
3. Have you faced any difficulties regarding marriage. Please state how?
As a new muslim and a female, there are people that try to take advantage of that :offended:
4. Is there anything you feel other muslims need to be aware concerning your needs? And what more can be done to help?
Usually new muslims are already feeling isolated in their own home because they have just accepted something that is, in most cases
not accepted by their family. So they are looking for some sort of acceptance..
So if you see a new muslim, be friendly to them. Invite them out with you and your friends, offer your help.. etc
I'm sure they would be more than appreciative.
