The month of Ramadhan [is that] in which was revealed the Qur'an, a guidance for the people and clear proofs of guidance and criterion. So whoever sights [the new moon of] the month, let him fast it; and whoever is ill or on a journey - then an equal number of other days. Allah intends for you ease and does not intend for you hardship and [wants] for you to complete the period and to glorify Allah for that [to] which He has guided you; and perhaps you will be grateful. [2:185]

    Hello everyone

    Report bad ads?

    Hello Thank you for letting me join this forum! I am an educator and I live in Colorado, USA. I have been exploring on my spiritual path. I was raised Lutheran, then I began to fuse my believes with Paganism, and now I'm not sure where to go next. I've researched Islam and much of what Islam reaches seems to resonate with me. I have come close to taking the Shahada, but, I'm not sure if I'm ready to take the plunge so to speak. So I am here to learn more and hopefully to find faith, whatever that may be.

    Thank you, and peace be with you

    Welcome to the site. You will find many extremely knowledgeable people here. May they help you on your path.
    Taking Shahada can look like a big step. It certainly was for me. But all I can say is that when you do, you will immediately know that you did the right thing. And you will feel better for it.

    Hello

    Welcome to the forum. I pray you find the answers you are looking for. Anything on your mind please do ask.
    Hello everyone

    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

    Re: Hello everyone

    Hello oceanbreeze. I'm Dan from Greenville, SC. I have family in Colorado and have visited many times. It's so beautiful there. I have a lot of respect for teachers, and I hear that they treat the teachers a little bit better in Colorado than they do here in the South. I hope that is your experience.

    Welcome to Islamic Board! I have had a lot of great discussions here over the years. I hope you find as much value in it as I have.
