Reverts and their Muslim Communities

Islam is not a religion to be practiced in isolation—it demands community.

Remember that when the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) moved to Madinah he spent the initial months establishing brotherhood and a masjid (mosque).
 
For today’s new Muslims, integrating with the community is similarly important. And the community revolves around the masjid. The Muslim community can be a means of support for a convert or revert who has become isolated from family members, a means of education and instruction in practicing Islam, and a means of constant companionship...

But what if you don't live near a mosque? Can going online satisfy one's needs?

On-line contacts with Muslims is not the same as face to face real contact
 
The minimum for men would be to attend Friday prayers
 
If there is no mosque in town and one can't travel to any nearby mosque, then there would be an excuse, but if in the future you could move to an area where there is a mosque it would be advisable

Islam is the true religion ordained by Allah for all human-beings, then, one should pronounce the "Shahada", the testimony of faith, without further delay. The Holy Qur'an is explicit on this regard as Allah states:

"The Religion in the sight of Allah is Islam." (Qur'an 3:19)

You can get more guideline of Islam from this link:

Twelve Tips for New Muslims
 
The first months, and in some cases years, for many reverts are usually challenging as they are an important transition stage with many things to learn and do, all at once.

For this to be a smooth transition, it is always useful to benefit from other people's experiences and learn from their insight and wisdom.

The following are some useful tips by brother Alex, from Texas

1. Practice Islam As Much As You Can ...

2.  Respect Your Parents ...
 
3. Find a Teacher ...

4. Keep Away From Debates and Arguments ...

5. Gain a Connection to the Arabic Language ...
 
6. Understand Islam’s Organic Nature ...
Think Win-Win for a better world for all...

The Unheard Stories of Muslim Converts
 
The Unheard Stories of Muslim Converts is a panel discussion held last month in NY to discuss the issues converts face in dealing with the Muslim community after converting
 
 
The Unheard Stories of Muslim Converts
 
This panel was a part of 2nd Annual ICNYU Conference held during the first weekend of February at New York University. Panelists included Suhaib Webb, Raymond Brock Murray, Lisa Shah, Will Caldwell, Musa Bryant, Megan Putney, Whitney Terrill, Lisa Shah, Peter Casey, Cyrus McGoldrick , Jay Dabhi and the discussion was facilitated by Khalid Latif.Usually when the convert experience is discussed in a Muslim community, the discussion focuses on why the individual converted.
 
Although there is a great benefit in hearing these stories, the discussion never deepens into issues a convert faces after converting. This panel discusses the real experiences that converts face in dealing with the Muslim community after converting as well as issues with family, relationship, education, and many other topics.ICNYU started the Conver(t)sations program this past January. This program aims to establish an entry point into the community for those who have converted or reverted to Islam. It can be hard for many of us to fit in and find a comfortable place in the Muslim community, and those who are converts are no exception to this. Our hope is to provide an outlet for socializing, mentorship, and discussion that makes the transition process easier for our brothers and sisters who have made the decision to embrace the faith.

SOLACE
 
 
“SOLACE was set up by a group of sisters who were concerned about the difficulties that revert sisters often face. Whilst there are many organisations within the United Kingdom who cater for the educational and Islamic needs of new revert sisters, we felt there lacked an organisation whose aim was relieving the difficulties of revert sisters regardless of whether they have been a Muslim for a few weeks or many years.”
 

Aims:

SOLACE was established in 2010. Like its name, our aims are to:

  • Comfort revert sisters during their times of need
  • Support revert sisters by providing the means to make them feel stable and positive about their lives again; setting them firmly back onto the path to Allah (subhanahu wa ta’ala).
  • Empower revert sisters to resolve their physical and emotional tests which often prevents them from enjoying their lives in their newly embraced faith.

Some details:

Website: www.solaceuk.org
