Bismillah Ir-Rahmaan Ir-Raheem

Welcome to my blog. I hope, insha'Allah that you will benefit from the information provided here. In the future, insha'Allah, I will try to post topics that I think are of specific interest to new Muslims.

I know it can be a somewhat difficult road to travel on your own . . . but insha'Allah, I really recommend that you try to find listings for your local Masjid or Islamic Center and see if they have programs, learning sessions, resources, etc., for new Muslims. Also, see if they have any volunteers who are willing to work with new Muslims to help them learn about prayers, etc.

I can't stress this enough. The internet is a great resource - but truly, the best thing is to find someone you can talk to one-on-one and ask any questions you may have. While most Muslims will not have all the answers, they can hopefully point you in the right direction. However, make sure that you know what type of Islam this person is following. Islam itself is complete - however - there are many people following deviations and sects.

While this can be confusing, just remember that Allah said we must follow the Qur'an:

'God - there is no god but He, the Ever-living, the Self-subsisting (by whom all subsist). He has sent down upon you the Book with the Truth ... as a guidance unto mankind ...' (Al 'Imran 3: 2-3)

'There shall come to you guidance from Me, and whosoever follows My guidance no fear shall be on them, neither shall they sorrow' (al-Baqarah 2: 38)

"And We sent down from the Quran that which is a healing and a mercy to those who believe (in Islamic Monotheism)." [17:82]

"Indeed in this there is a remembrance for those who have a living heart, listen attentively and are awake to taking heed." [Qaaf: 37]

and we must follow the Sunnah:

“he who obeys the Messenger, has indeed obeyed Allah” (Surah-Al-Nisa, V-80)

“Say you, ‘O people if you love Allah, then follow me: Allah will love you and forgive your sins and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful” (Surah-Ale-Imram, V-31)

“Undoubtedly, you have the best in the following of the Messenger,” (Surah Al-Ahzab, V-21)

“And whatsoever the Messenger gives you, take it, and whatsoever he forbids you, abstain from that,
And fear Allah; undoubtedly, the torment of Allah is severe”(Surah Al-Hashr, V-7)

“And whoso obeys Allah and His messenger, has got a great success” (Surah Al-Ahzab, V-71)

I hope, insha'Allah, that this reminder will be of some benefit to you and I hope to post more soon.

Asalaam 'Alaikum
