Hello to one to all
In peace to you with my introduction
Each time I try to write Assalamu Alaikum I find it hard,thus I have had to copy from the welcome page as being new to Islam
I find it easier to say it,than write or type it so I apologize for this.
I found the forum here,when looking for information regarding interaction and help,as a revert,new muslim for guidence in many areas,this I ask humbly.
For many years,I felt that I was not liking what I saw outside of the Muslim faith and felt in my heart that as a Christian,although I admit I did not worship
any more this way,that it was no longer for me.
I am married with family grown and one day I was sitting in the town having a rest from food shopping,when I came across a group of people,with a stall
which contained much literature from Islam.
I asked may I have some please,and I was given as much as I wanted,with much help,this I took home,and read,and read which I must admit was alot
for me to take in.
That said after some time,once more again food shopping in the same place,I went back to the same place,asked for more information,then two weeks later
In March this year I bore witness with 2 brothers and a sister and embraced Islam
This felt like I had come home,in my heart,and I knew that all those years of floundering around,were over,my past behind me,a new life begun
I still have much to learn,much indeed,and make many mistakes,I am also to wear hijab soon,I wear a scarf for now,and always have dressed modestly
never drank etc,so there was not much change in this sense,the change in my life since,has been peace and knowing that by prayer,and trying to do the best I can
by patience in all things,that I will never be abandoned,even though trials may come in life,as they do,I pray,and ask for guidence, I still get my words mistaken
and have much to learn indeed.That said I made the right choice
My thanks to you and in peace to you now and always

Your story is truly inspiring and I know that the brothers who make the effort to run these stalls do face hatred from ignorant people but Alhamdulillah (All praise is to Allah) they remain firm and do a lot of good work and Allah guided you through them. Hence why it is important for us to give dawah (invite towards Islam) so that others can also find true peace and contentment in their lives inshaAllah (God willing).
Please make yourself comfortable and do not hesitate to ask whatever you like.
