Being an American raised in strict Baptist faith..I lost much family and friends…i became Muslim in 2013…thankfully I gained dear friends who help me and my Arabic Quran came from Iraq and from those who became now my dear family….even though at times it is hard to live in a society as I do…I have never regretted one moment..I still have so much to learn…but I keep trying…and as you I am proud.

Marriage is not what everyone thinks it is. It’s not waking up early every morning to make breakfast and eat together. Its not cuddling in bed together until both of you peacefully fall asleep. It’s not a clean home and a homemade meal every day. It’s someone who steals all the covers and knees you in the face because the bed is too small for both of you. It’s slammed doors and few harsh words, fights and the silent treatment, it’s wondering if you’ve made the right decision.
It is, despite all of those things, the one thing you look forward to every day.
It’s coming home to the same person everyday that you know loves and cares about you. It’s laughing about the one time you accidentally did something stupid.
It’s about eating the cheapest and easiest meal you can make and sitting down together at 10pm to eat because you both had a crazy day. It’s when you have an emotional breakdown and your love lays on the floor with you and holds you and tells you everything is going to be okay, and you believe them. It’s when “Netflix and chill” literally means you watch Netflix and hang out.
It’s about still loving someone even though they make you absolutely insane.
Living with the person you love is countless fights about absolutely nothing, but is also having a love that people spend their whole life looking for.
It’s not perfect and it’s hard, but it’s amazing and comforting and the best thing you’ll ever experience.
Go ahead and share a picture of the person you love and copy and paste this, make their day.

#CelebrateMercy -— Rabiʾ al awwal 1438: Loving the Prophet (ﷺ)
Lady ‘Ā’ishah related that a man came to the Prophet (ﷺ) saying: “O God’s Messenger, I love you more than myself, my wife and children. When I am at home and remember you, I cannot wait to come and gaze at you. Though when I remember my death and your death, I know that when you enter Paradise, you will be raised-up with the Prophets. But even if I enter Paradise, I am afraid I will never see you.” The Prophet (ﷺ) did not answer him until the following was sent down to him, “Whoever obeys Allāh and His Messenger, they are with those whom Allah has favoured, of the Prophets, the highest saints, the martyrs and the righteous. They are the best of company.” [4:69]
Subḥān’Allāh, the concern wasn’t if he would end up in heaven, but if he would be close to the Prophet (ﷺ) or not.

My name is Melis..
Before Islam I used to be a new apostolic christian.I had a hectic life of drinking alot and having sex with different men.I have 3 children from 3 different men.I was married to the 1 but he never worked, drinking alcohol alot and abused me in front of my children.
I have a very good friend who use to give me a lift to work and use to talk about Allah and Islam. Every morning I listened but I wasnt really that interested until the day that he spoke about Allah and there was tears in his eyes…I was so moved about this grown man of 40 yrs that talks about his religion sp passionately. I started getting more interested and in January 2016 I embraced Islam. I go every week to one-on-one classes with the Imam who is teaching me step by step from the history and all I need to know in our daily lives.
I have never regretted my decision and hope other non muslims will open their eyes as well in sha Allah Ameen.Islam is the only true way of live.Alhamdullilah.
As Salam Alaikum Wa Rahmadullahi Wa Barakatu all ❤️
My name is Mariana and I’m Czech revert living in Uk.
Alhamdulillah I’ve converted to islam 4 years ago in young age. As many of you know back home we didn’t really knew nothing about muslims, we hardly see any muslim (I’ve never seen one in my life back home) and mostly all we knew about muslims was trough social media (e.g. Al-Qaida , Taliban and of course 9/11). And even in school we had nothing about muslim. I used to be strong Catholic, used to read bible and old and New Testament on daily and even go to Catholic Church school.
But all changed when me and my mother moved to uk and she have married pakistani muslim man , well he wasn’t a great example of muslim but that’s when i met my first muslim ever. After a while I’ve started going to school here and meet more muslims and becoming friends with them.
And that’s when my research began. From hating muslims I went to protecting and loving them , soon after finishing Quran and Reading life of Prophet Muhammed SAW I’ve converted to Islam Alhamdulillah. Path was easy till the day I’ve started to properly practice it. My mom wasntmuch happy about me no more, loads of my family started backbiting and I’ve even lost many of my dearest friends and even got a death threats from my love ones . But Alhamdulillah with a help of Allah SWT I’ve been strong and just went my way learning more about my religion and covering my self .
I’ve been trough bad just to become stronger and created more and more passion for my religion ISLAM ❤️.
Islam has showed me truth which i was looking for.
When everything was going downhill this phase always helped me “Allah test those who he loves” Subhan’Allah look at this , if you feel life is hard remember this ☺️
May Allah SWT bless you all with an good health and let us all meet in Jannah . Ameen
