What Is Some Advice for New Shahadas?

Assalamu Alaikum,

There are new Muslimas coming into Islam everyday, so what is your advice to them,insha'ALLAH?

What would you say to Muslimas having problems with putting on covering clothes and hijab/and or niqab?

Help inspire your fellow sister in Islam!

As a convert myself, I believe that sisters need to be strong and stand up for Islam. The Qur'an tells us that we will be tested and that saying the shahada do not make us believers but only Muslims.

Pull it together new shahadas and hold onto the rope of ISLAM. Let Islam be your hope, your life, and your EVERYTHING...

Show your LORD that you are deserving of YOUR LORD.

WE ARE ALL TESTED BY ALLAHSWT...being a Muslim means struggling for his sake

Salam Sisters, Do you have hijab or niqab stories,insha'ALLAH?

Assalamu Alaikum sisters,

If there any sisters that have niqab or hijab stories,then insha'ALLAH come and share them with other sisters? I highly encourage all the sisters to wear hijab because its a commandment from ALLAHSWT and you do not know when he will take your life. Niqab is not fard, or a must from ALLAHSWT, but you can wear it because as women we have this option.

I converted about 3 years ago, and have worn hijab ever since, so if you would like to tell your story then insha'ALLAH, post them up.

Assalamu Alaikum,

I know many Muslimas, especially the Muslimas in America want to fit in, and wear the same things as Non-Muslim american girls. As Muslims, we should stand out. What will happen when we wear the same things, and act the same way as others? We will not be "strange" to them anymore. As lives should be different than from our previous lives of the jahiliya(pre-Islam). As Muslimas, we should not be shaving/plucking our eyebrows, talk to non-mahram men, go to mix parties, being out in the streets, wearing tight clothes outside, and etc. These things are from the Jahiliya. Many of us have probaby been told we were strange because of our choice of clothes, and what we do. This is something you should feel good about because Muslims are different. Islam is our way of life. Islam encompasses ALL aspects of our lives.

Shirk in Fear Part 1 of 2 by Laila Nasheeba

Assalamu Alaikum,

Shirk is a very, very very serious issue in Islam. Sometimes we can shirk simply by fearing to do as ALLAHSWT says because of what our family, friends, or strangers may believer. Shirk means associating partners with ALLAH.
Assalamu Alaikum

This is a very good video over Fitna of Desires. Its good to understand that our desires should not stop us from doing what is right. Our desires can get the best of us. As Muslims, our desires should not stop us from being just and correct in our thinking.

As Muslims, we should be mindful of our desires, and to not allow them to decrease our iman. When we follow our desires, we can lose sight of the truth.

Islam Is Our Way Of Life

Assalamu ALaikum,

Islam is our way of life that shouldn't be measured by the Kufr's way of life. When looking at the state of affairs concerning our ummah, we can see that the some Muslimas are not covering themselves, but if they are they are wearing their scarves with tight clothing. Men are not wearing their fard beards, but shaving them off. Some Muslims are celebrating Easter, Christmas, and other kufr's holidays. As new Muslims and born-Muslims it is very important to remember that Islam have NOTHING to do with Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and etc. Islam is not based off of anything but the Qur'an and Sunnah.

Chapter 180
The Excellence of Reciting the Qur'an

991. Abu Umamah (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, "Read the Qur'an, for it will come as an intercessor for its reciters on the Day of Resurrection.''

992. An-Nawwas bin Sam`an (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: I heard the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) saying, "The Qur'an and its people who applied it, will be brought on the Day of Resurrection preceded with Surat Al-Baqarah and Surat Al-`Imran arguing on behalf of those who applied them.''

993. `Uthman bin `Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur'an and teaches it.''

994. `Aishah (May Allah be pleased with her) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "The one who is proficient in the recitation of the Qur'an will be with the honourable and obedient scribes (angels) and he who recites the Qur'an and finds it difficult to recite, doing his best to recite it in the best way possible, will have a double reward.''
[Al-Bukhari and Muslim].

996. `Umar bin Al-Khattab (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "Verily, Allah elevates some people with this Qur'an and abases others.''

999. Ibn Mas`ud (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "Whoever recites a letter from the Book of Allah, he will be credited with a good deed, and a good deed gets a ten-fold reward. I do not say that Alif-Lam-Mim is one letter, but Alif is a letter, Lam is a letter and Mim is a letter.''

1000. Ibn `Abbas (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "He who does not memorize any part from the Qur'an he is like the ruined house.''

1001. `Abdullah bin `Amr bin Al-`As (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: The Prophet (PBUH) said, "The one who was devoted to the the Qur'an will be told on the Day of Resurrection: `Recite and ascend (in ranks) as you used to recite when you were in the world. Your rank will be at the last Ayah you recite.'''
[Abu Dawud and At-Tirmidhi].


According to the Hadiths explained above, the Qur’an is a beautiful way to earn extra deeds for our Book of Deeds. The way to earning deeds described above is simply by reciting the Qur’an and by teaching the Qur’an to others,insha’ALLAH. Also, its not enough to simply memorize the Qur’an, but to ponder and act upon what is being recited or read. If the Qur’an is hard for you to recite, then alhumdulilah you get double the reward. The recitation of the Qur’an is a beautiful thing for people to learn to do. I do not speak Arabic, but I listen to the recitation of it, or try reading it in Arabic.

Good place to learn the Qur’an at:
