    Thinking of embracing Islam

    Report bad ads?

    Greetings to all,
    As you can see by the title, I joined this forum as I am seriously considering embrasing Islam. I started reading the Quran a few years ago and was moved by the text, even though it was an english translation. I have recently started reading more about the faith and have also bought another Quran with both arabic text and also the english translation and also have started trying to learn arabic so I can read the Quran in the language that it was meant to be read.
    Unfortunately I live in rural england and there are no Mosques anywhere around so I cannot get guidance from a learned Muslim at first hand.
    Any help or guidance I can get from this forum will be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome.

    If you don't mind me asking, where in England? It's understandable if you don't want to reply.

    Re: Thinking of embracing Islam

    Hey Alpher,

    Hope you are good and hope you find this place beneficial. Some of us are reverts and others are Muslims who recently started practicing and others are Muslims who have been always practicing. The variety of people may help in getting people to understand your situation.

    I hope you enjoy your time and it is beneficial,

    Brother,
    'Eesa
    Thinking of embracing Islam

    The path is long but I hope we meet,
    After the grave and the Day, in paradise in bliss upon a reclined seat.

    A traveler traveling - travelled from shirk to tawheed,
    If I'm remembered for anything - let it be the Mercy I seek.

    Your Bro. Abu Hurayra, al-Habeshi

    May Allah[swt] guide you and make it easy on you! Ameen!

    here's a site where you can start to learn to pronounce Arabic:

    http://transliteration.org/quran/home.htm

    here's a site where you can search the Qur'an:

    http://quod.lib.umich.edu/k/koran/

    here's a site where you can compare translations:

    http://quran.islamicnetwork.com/

    here's an audio of the Qur'an with Muhsin Khan [Noble Qur'an] Translation:

    http://www.kalamullah.com/noble-quran.html

    from the same site, here's an AWESOME lecture on Surah Al Fatiha:

    http://www.kalamullah.com/al-fatihah.html

    Bilal Philips has a great site with free downloads. i recommend the Foundation of Islamic Studies set at the bottom of the page and Contemporary Issues as well [and most of them...]:

    http://www.bilalphilips.com/bilal_pa...sk=view&id=288

    here's a site that shows you how to pray:

    http://english.islamway.com/flashpag...=782&hight=438

    this site is my favorite lecturer, Mufti Ismail Menk. you can download plenty of his lectures for free:

    i hope that you find them useful!

    Thinking of embracing Islam

    Had the non-believer known of all the Mercy which is in the Hands of Allah, he would not lose hope of entering Paradise, and had the believer known of all the punishment which is present with Allah, he would not consider himself safe from the Hell-Fire

    Re: Thinking of embracing Islam

    May Allah guide you to and along the Straight Way. I can relate to the difficulties of living in a rural area with few Muslims. Fortunately, as Br. Yusuf Noor pointed out, the internet is a valuable resource to learn and to order books and lectures on Islam. I have recently placed orders from soukislam.com, islamicbookstore.com, soundvision.com, islamicity.com and dar-us-salam.com.

    Thinking of embracing Islam

    Three simple rules in life:

    1) If you do not go after what you want, you will never have it
    2) If you don't ask, the answer will always be no.
    3) If you do not step forward, you'll always be in the same place

    I say DON'T THINK ABOUT IT, just do it! Nike .

    (Well actually do think about it but you know what I mean, if you embrace Islam you will have no regrets but if you do not you will have regret after regret...)

    Thinking of embracing Islam

    1. The Believers; men

      And women, are protectors,

      One of another; they enjoin

      What is just, and forbid

      What is evil; they observe

      Regular prayers, pay

      Zakat and obey

      Allah and His Messenger

      On them will Allah pour

      His mercy; for Allah

      Is Exhalted in power, Wise.
