As salamu alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatuhu. .. I hope I said and spelled that correctly. I am recently taking the time to learn more about Islam and have so many questions. I am thinking of converting but I would like to learn more about my prayers so that I may be the best muslim I can be. I have trouble with pronouncing words and learning what the names of parts of the prayer and when and what to say. I am trying to learn in English first so I may know what I am saying and then would like to take the time to learn the correct way. I have attended masjid but because I hadn’t learned the prayer completely I felt out of place. I know I must have patience. I don’t have any women friends who are muslim. I first was introduced to Islam through an old friend of mine. He use to teach me all he could and I almost converted years ago but kept putting it off , I attended masjid with his mother and I truly feel this is where I belong and is the only way to live. I am ready to live my life for Allah. I explained to Michel that perfecting the prayer comes after the shahada and the proclamation of faith is a must in order to enter the fold of Islam, I suggested she take the shahada and later go to the Masjid to make it official, this was her reply:)
I said it this morning and took my shower and then prayed the best way I could. I’m proud to be a Muslimah today !
May Allah make all easy on our new beautiful sister Ameen!
