    Report bad ads?

    Hey,
    im currently wanting to revert to Islam but I don’t have anyone to talk to about it to anyone to support or guide me, I did look for sister circles in my area but had no luck, I would really like to get to know some of you and get every bit of help and advice for you. I’d love to learn from you guys at the moment I’m a beginner at it all.

    thank you in advance

    Hello!

    To become a muslim, all you have to do is say the shahdah (testimony).

    “ASH-HADU ANLA ELAHA ILLA-ALLAH WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASUL-ALLAH”.

    Which means

    “I bear witness that there is no deity (none truly to be worshipped) but, Allah, and I bear witness that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah.”


    Where are you from? There could be sister reverts around whom you've yet to find, or perhaps an international whatsapp group for revert sisters?

    Take it slow, prayers etc. It's ok to learn slowly and take things one step at a time. Don't be overwhelmed.

    Re: Advice and support

    In addition to what others have mentioned here about joining the sisters group, you can also visit your local mosque and inquire therein. There are sister events they can let you know about and introduce you to sisters who can help you get adjusted to your new way of life.

    Islam is open to all those who want to believe the truth. I am so glad alhumdulillah to know that you are wanting to join the large religious community. Welcome I will be so glad to assist you in strengthening your faith, insh'Allah. You may feel free to ask any question you want and I will try my level best to acknowledge it from whatever I know. For indeed, we are all striving to become better Muslims day in and day out. May Allah guide us all, Ameen.

    Re: Advice and support

    I said my Shahada over the phone on my birthday in 2010. I called a Mosque in Missouri about an hour from my home at the time, and someone helped me. Since then I have moved back to Oklahoma and contacted the Mosques in OKC, Oklahoma and in the Dallas, Texas area. I live half way between the two large towns. In all these years, I have never found anyone to help me learn to pray or anything. So the only thing I do, is watch videos of lectures. Maybe no one wants to help because I was not born a Muslim or because I am in my late 50's. Either way, I was very disappointed and hurt.

    Muslims in Western countries have failed to develop proper institutions. This is because they are largely economic immigrants who themselves often come from a very secular and irreligious background.

    Visit an Islamic country, maybe one of the Gulf states like Saudi Arabia or Qatar, or otherwise Egypt, Jordan, Pakistan, Malaysia or Turkey. Spend some time there and immerse yourself in Islam and Muslim society you will not regret it trust me.

    Dear sister, firstly, Mashallah, I am so happy that you have converted to Islam, the religion of peace and tranquility, alhumdulillah. WELCOME! Secondly, I am so heartbroken to hear that nobody is helping you. You are more than welcome to join our chat in conversation with the Muslim community and please feel free to message me anytime.
