Back in Islam

Poem: Turning Back to Allah

By SisterZ / 28 Feb 2013

You've Recognised your sin/mistake,

Before I genuinely began to cultivate and nurture my relationship with God, I regarded the five daily prayers that Islam enjoins on believers as laborious. It seemed impractical to expect that I would be able to stop what I was doing during my busy work schedule to take time out and pray.

How to Convert to Islam and Become a Muslim

The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.

 

Female converts finding true feminism in Islam

By Hasnet Lais / 14 Feb 2013

You’d think after watching BBC Three’s Make me a Muslim documentary, being a female convert to Islam is so riddled with fault lines. Not really. My recent interviews with Muslim converts offered a rare glimpse into the lives of three women who would flatly reject such comparisons. And they’re all buzzing with spiritual ecstasy, retelling what caused them to halal-ify their wardrobes and Islamise dress codes.

The real story about Ex-Christian from UK

By Bruce Paterson / 29 Dec 2012

I would like to take the opportunity to share with you my journey to Islam and I feel that by sharing this experience with you I can help you on your journey through life.

Yet when we look at our own upbringing and our education, how can we be sure that all the things that we have been told, are in reality the truth?
