Im thinking of becoming a Muslim but I'm not sure how I would explain it to my family. What should I say?

Hiya,

It definitely depends on the family you have and whether they are generally quite open minded, or if already have preconceived negative notions about Islam and Muslims. Maybe you could explain the context a bit more?

In the mean time, maybe any followers who have become Muslim and went through this step can comment/message me with their experiences! It will be useful insha’Allah.


Salam alaykum wr wb Where are you from if you don't mind me asking? :)

As the Palestinians bury their dead they repeat “Hasbunallahu Wa Ni’mal Wakeel”. I found the translation through your blog and it made me cry. Indeed, Allah (Alone) is Sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us). May he give them peace

Ameen! Subhan’Allah a beautiful message.
Jazak’Allahu Khayran.


Here's some advice I'd love for you to share with all the lovelies on Tumblr, from a lady who's been Muslim for a long time and seen many things - take your Islam with some humor, dears. You don't need to become this solemn, holy, too-much-laughter-is-disliked person to be a Muslim. Don't become a hypocritical Puritan looking at other people and 'tsk-tsking' - instead, laugh and remember that that was where you were yesterday, and be happy and thank God for where you are today. :)

Thank you! Some good advice, I think many people begin practicing and feel that they have to leave their old personalities behind completely, but actually to submit to God means you leave behind only what was bad and keep the positive traits you had. And then of course implementing all that God has ordained for us.

Jazakillahu Khayran


There’s literally one or two blogs that I check often on tumblr despite the fact that I follow over a thousand! 

I seriously need to connect with some of you guys. 

O followers:

Will be trying to answer some questions tonight insha’Allah. Including a question (and the answer will most likely end up a mini essay) that has been repeatedly asked for months now. I promise to be more consistent with this blog. And yes, that means every day there will be at least a little something insha’Allah (God willing). 

And to all my dear followers, I haven’t connected with you all in such a long time! Please introduce yourselves and tell me:

How are you all?!
