4 Ways For Combating Loneliness as a New Muslim

The good news is that you can combat loneliness on your own and enrich your life without waiting for anyone else to do it for you!

Rediscover Yourself

Your life most likely did a complete 360-degree tilt upon embracing the Islamic faith. Old friendships may have ended while new ones never had a chance to take root.

This moment in your life is ideal for rediscovering yourself. Get in touch with what makes you tick, where you see your life going and what things interest you.

Instead of wasting time thinking about what ‘could’ or ‘should’ have been, make your life happen! Concentrate on the gifts and talents that Allah Almighty has blessed you with while strengthening your shortcomings. That could mean going back to school to learn a new skill or switching up your career to something more meaningful.

Make Positive Use of Your Time

When the feelings of loneliness seep in, it’s essential that you keep things in perspective and count all the other things that are going well in your life, such as your health or career. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said...

Welcome to Islam – A Letter to New Converts

Assalamu alaikum (peace be upon you),

Welcome to the fold of Islam.

As you begin this new journey in life, you will undoubtedly run into questions and struggles. You are on a spiritual high right now, but as with all things in life … what goes up, must come down. Every single Muslim in this world has ups and downs and reverts are no different. So when that dip comes, please take comfort in knowing you are not alone and this is not unusual. This is part of your test.

Do the people think that they will be left to say, “We believe” and they will not be tried.” (Al-`Ankabut 29:2)

You might want to aim for perfection, most of us do in the beginning, but the truth is that will burn you out. Aim for being the best Muslim you can handle being for the sake of Allah.

Religion is very easy and whoever overburdens himself in his religion will not be able to continue in that way…” (Authenticated by Al-Bukhari)

Many sisters and brothers advised me take it one step at a time, don’t rush and don’t overburden yourself. At the time I did not understand how wise that advice is, but hindsight is 20/20 and I can tell you from personal experience they are right. You do not need to wake up the day after shahada and instantly memorize the entire Qur’an while only wearing black and obsessing over whether or not you can eat chicken nuggets from Wendy’s...

5 Embarrassing Experiences a Convert May Face

Telling my family that I had converted to Islam was received as warmly as if I had told them I was a crack dealer. My mother was horrified. My dad didn’t mind so much, he had really good holiday in Turkey in the 90’s, so Muslims couldn’t be that bad, could they?

My granny? Well, she was one of those old generation Irish Protestant ladies and anything that wasn’t Christianity was foreign.

Foreign.

That’s exactly the word to describe how my conversion felt to them...

Baby Steps in Your Journey to Islam

When you hear a new Muslim explain what brought him or her to Islam, the words “journey” or “voyage” are often repeated as the story unfolds.

The reason is because it actually feels like you’ve taken a trip somewhere and arrived at your final destination.

For myself, my journey to Islam began when I was a 19-year-old college student sitting in my dorm room contemplating the world I had just been thrust into. I had never been exposed to such vices as I witnessed that first week, such as alcoholism. Yet, here I was in a new world filled with young boys and girls engaging in such activities.

By that first Sunday away from home, I began a determined search to find God. Since my family was never particularly religious, I felt a calling to seek out God as perhaps a means of salvation from the sins being openly committed around me...
