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.
Ameen! Subhan’Allah a beautiful message.
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.
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?!
