I am a new Muslim! What Now?
Assalam-o-Alikum! Our new brothers and sisters! Whole hearted welcome to each and every fold of Islam.
Every minute, dozens of people admit Islam and board on a steady journey of self-improvement and discovery. Some have a highly supportive family or community behind them, which can make it quite a smooth and easy transition. On the other hand, mostly people enter into Islam all on their own, which can be quite perplexing. Thinking back to the time you embraced Islam, you felt a mixed feeling of excitement and nervousness. The joy, exhilaration, and lifetime importance of accepting Islam can often be accompanied by a sense of being overwhelmed and unsure of how to best approach the new dimensions of one’s life. So many details, one may think, so many books, so many rules. Check again: Islam is not an ambiguous, complex religion. It is the natural religion, and as such, it is a way of life – there is no need to panic.
