A blessed soul who found Islam.May Allaah ease all her affairs, keep her strong and guided on the deen, Aameen!

“Assalamu’alaykum.I am Karen Brown, new to Islam. I was raised in a strict Christian home. I am basically an orphan. I grew up hiding from my parents or being knocked around. Everyone thought we were the best family. I doubted Christianity all my life. How can parents call themselves Christians only to do what they were doing to me?

I started asking Muslims to explain there religion. Unfortunately, they didn’t think I was serious. I began studying on my own and finally went to my Muslim boss and begged for help. I wanted something more. All my family lives, but they don’t claim me and have robbed me. I had no hope or reason to live.

I only started getting help in learning in May last year. I started reading on my own in December. I was always attracted to Islam growing up. Females were always covered. My Muslim boss had helped me out a lot. I had lost a place to live and he made sure I had one.

I remember when I was younger, I asked about Islam. My father said he would kill his own than to see his daughter become Muslim. I was terrified to admit Islam was the true religion.

So, 3 months into it, I have had my tire slashed and a family member followed me home and knocked me around. My parents still have no clue. I am terrified of what my parents will do. They are not good people. I learn Islam through books, Facebook and basically that is all. I did Ramadan on my own. I changed my way of dressing by reading books on how Muslims dress. Sadly, I was told I can’t wear my hijab at work.

In all my life I wanted to know what real love felt like. No one cared if I lived or died. Now, I know Allah does. He claims me. I have much to learn and the trials are wearing me down. But, I have hope that Allah will help me.”

Bismillahir Rahmanir Raheem, subhana’Allaah, recently I was reading how some billionaires are trying to make potions and working on different ways to live forever. I thought to myself, no amount of money or science will allow us to live forever. I remembered this ayat/verse. Rather we should be thinking of how to make the time we have here to be the best we can be, and to help as many people as we can for the sake of Allaah. Alhamdullilah.

I am a born Muslim who never practiced Islam before even though
I still loved Allah more than anything!
I always had an urge to wear the hijab but was never strong enough to go with it. Alhamdulillah,
I started reading the Quran and started to question my life style 24/7. It came to a point where I was listening to a lecture and this Sheikh (scholar of Islam) said if you were to die today and face Allah, what you got to present in front of Him saying here I did this for you?
I took a moment to think what I had to offer and honestly, I couldn’t think of one thing.

Yes, I’m a loving, caring, helpful person with a huge heart but I felt like this question had a deeper meaning.
So I said if I didn’t have anything ’till today to offer Allah, I’ll start by this, and I wore my hijab on January 26, 2015.
And I have never been happier in my life.
My life makes sense now. I don’t feel lost anymore.
I have a purpose now.
I see how different I get treated by the brothers -with so much more respect, even from strangers.
If someone offered me 50 million dollars to remove my hijab,
I would never in a million years take it off.
My hijab, my pride! Salam (peace) to every sister who is on the right path! May Allah be pleased with us. Ameen.
