Salamualikum.

May i ask are you a revert or doing some kinda Poll for some work?

Well the hardest thing for me is striving for Taqwah and still is, also striving my self to get in Janah and ask for forgivness from Allaah for all my wrong doings.. and also the hijab,Jubbah and modest clothes is tuff.. and reading Qura'an correctly {as i have a lisp it's terrible :cry:) but im getting there...

the hardest thing is kicking the bad habits, i wont be specific on which one, but ive found that attending the masjid 5 times a day helps kick any bad habit... a HUGE help...

Trying not to overwhelm or stress myself out.

My friends are being soo supportive, I love them all soo sooo much. But, my family aren't going to take it so well. It scares me heaps. I didn't know they'd be so hostile towards Islam until recent weeks when I have brought it up in conversation. I don't know what I'm going to do.
But, Allah Aalam.
InshaAllah everything will work out.

For me it was learning the arabic for the prayers. I knew the positions of prayer from watching my husband pray. It was the arabic that gave me the biggest problem but, we had a small laminated prayer card that I kept with me and studied over it every chance I got and it helped alot. :happy: To a lesser degree the fasting. I had never really fasted since there is no prescribed fasting in Christianity.

Salam

For me the hardest things was telling my parents especially my mom. But alhamdullilah after facing quite a few difficulties with them they now accepted who I am.

Understanding and realising where culture has superceded the Qur'an and Sunnah. Getting rid of the curtural aspects whithin family & friends which have no place in Qur'an and Sunnah...

The hardest part for me was to overcome the natural inclination to associate with others with a similar appearance, background and personal heritage as my own. I have encountered very few Caucasian American Muslims.

I just realised that my friend usually get confused and stressed out when she came living in malaysia.

i guess she easily get confused when she is near the non-practising muslim (showing off as if they are doing the right thing) and comparing it to the things that she learned.

Once her employer told/teached her differently on how to practise islam and told her off that she is doing it the wrong way.

My advice is don't let the others make you feel down. You are different than the others, they can't be like you and you can't be like them. Just be who you are but never forget to improve yourself islamically.

hola MustafaMc,

that is an interesting point about associations. i naturally assume other latinos are roman catholic, but i met a pentacostal latino in texas once. it was very strange, i felt a little bit like they had betrayed their heritage... which is wrong of me to think about somebody but it was my natural reaction... i imagine many people consider you strange for being a muslim.

que Dios te bendiga

Salam guys,

I couldnt but help to record my admiration to you all reverts. You all have to be thankful to Allah who guided you to the light and right path.

You have overcome so tough obstacles with the help of Allah the Almighty.

I wish you all hold to that path till the day you are heavenily rewarded. :happy:

I wouldnt call him strange, I would call him different on the right ground.

The point is not to imitate others but to go on the right path, however different or strange in the eyes of others!

its true not to try to imitate others, but sometimes its hard when you work a 9-5 job in an unislamic environment. it's hard to not go to party's where you mix freely with the opposite sex etc to move up in the place you work. Its a double edged sword sometimes, especially when you are new to Islam as I still am, and my coworkers have known me before I reverted. makes it a little harder.

There are 2 things that are hard for me.
1. Learning Arabic. I know very little. :wasalamex
2. Which is the most hardest thing for me at the moment is getting my Christian friends and family to excepted that I am Muslim as most of them don't full understand why I turned to Islam and away from there faith. I'm getting streasted about it but if I keep praying, I carm down and hope they will understand and excepted me as for who I am. :mmokay:

I have heard that learning arabic and the complexities of the religion is hard. Likewise the temptations of former habits, fashions etc are hard to bear with too.

But mashaallah to all you reverted brothers and sisters! Keep it up!
