We know how difficult it can be when you first find Islam and take that big step, then the pressure that comes with being a new Muslim and trying to do everything right starts.

Statements like “You need to start growing your beard now brother” or ” You should start wearing a hijab now that you are a Muslim sister” can be frequent when you become a new Muslim.

We know it’s not easy and that’s why we have asked Gabriel Al Romaani to talk about these issues with you in this months LIVE ONLINE discussion titled – Pressures of Being a New Muslim

The discussion will aim to give you guidance which can ease you through this stage of your life in sha Allah.

The LIVE online discussion will take place on Friday 23rd August 8:30PM – 9:30PM (BST).

For our previous ONLINE discussion, we had 50% of spaces booked within 24 hours so please REGISTER early to avoid disappointment.

Although, this discussion will focus on the issues faced in particular by new Muslims, as a born Muslim some of these issues can still be very prominent in families when we start practising Islam more.

It is also important for us as a wider Muslim community to know how we can support new Muslims and make their transition easier into Islam. Therefore, we encourage you to attend and benefit from this session by registering HERE.

Dhul Hijjah 2019 has been announced to start on Friday 02nd August 2019 and we should be feeling extremely blessed.  Allah(SWT) has given us yet another opportunity to be here on this Dunya to make the most of the ten days of Dhul Hijjah.

Today marks the beginning of the Islamic month of Dhul Hijjah 2019 and the first ten days of Dhul Hijjah are the best ten days of the year, even better than the ten last days of Ramadhan. Yes, you read that correctly, they are even better!

The Prophet Muhammed (SAW) said: “There are NO days in which Righteous deeds are MORE BELOVED to Allah(SWT) than these ten days” [Bukhari]

We must endeavour to do as many good deeds as possible in these ten days as these may be the last Dhul Hijjah we are able to be present in.

Why not start your efforts with donating to IslamWise and helping other new Muslims receive the much-needed support and knowledge they need in their journey to becoming a new Muslim.

The Prophet (SAW) said: “Allah, His angels and all those in the Heavens and on Earth, even ants in their ant-hills and fish in the water, call down blessings on those who instruct others in beneficial knowledge.” [Tirmidhi]
