How the Prophet Muhammad Cared for Converts

Ustadh Usama Canon discusses the first safe space created for Muslim converts in Mecca: Dar al-Arqam.

In this story, we learn many lessons on how the Prophet Muhammad [peace be upon him] cared for the needs of newly-converted Muslims.

Happy Holidays: The Christmas Dilemma of New Muslims

it gets a little bit complicated when those Muslims have only recently embraced Islam and their families invite them over for Christmas dinner.

What are new Muslims to do?

Should they reply to Christmas cards?

Should they give and receive presents?

As in everything to do with Islam, the answers to all of these questions are very simple.

Muslims do not celebrate the feast of Christmas because they believe that Allah alone is worthy of worship and that He has no partners and no equals...

How to Tell Your Family You Converted? An Inspiring Story

How will the family react?

Will they disown me?

Will they stop speaking to me?

Will they yell, call me names, disrespect me or my faith?

How do I navigate the politics of it all?

These are often just a few of the thoughts going through the new or prospective Muslimís mind.

Abu Issa* experienced much of this once he broke the news of his conversion to his family. He was just 16 years old in high school and still living at home when he converted to Islam, after having read about it in his history textbook and visiting the masjid.

When asked what he thought his familyís reaction to his conversion would be, he said:

ďI honestly didnít think it would be a big deal. My family had always been very open-minded. Or at least that was the image they portrayed to the world.

But it was a huge deal when I told them that I had converted. I could have been selling drugs to toddlers and they would have been less angry and more supportive. It was a nightmare. I was very hurt.Ē ...

Not Brainwashed: Converts Speak for Themselves

We convert because we find truth and beauty in Islam.

We convert because we find freedom from objectified in Islam.

We convert because we donít let the media tell us what to think.

We convert because Islam speaks to our nature.

We convert for a million reasons.

We are truth seekers. We are logical, thinking human beings...

More Than We Can Bear: Facing Tests as Muslims

Sometimes life seems just more than we can bear. Even for Muslims. We all have off-days, of course, when everything seems to go wrong, when we feel out of sorts.

No matter how regular we are with our prayers, those days come to us out of the blue, perhaps caused by a thoughtless comment from a friend, or perhaps we just didnít get enough sleep the night before.

But there can be times in our lives when we really have had enough. Nothing seems to be right. We are unhappy.

It seems to be a part of the human condition that no matter how much we have, we want more. No matter how much we have achieved, we are not satisfied. No matter how lovely our kids are or how perfect our marriage is, we have doubts...
