When I embraced Islam 6 years ago and decided that I could not learn my new faith in safety or wholly where I lived Allah opened doors for me to move to the other side of the world in Cairo, Egypt .. for this decision .. I have lost most of my family and many of those who said they were friends but subhan’allah .. Allah (swt) has given me a wonderful Muslim husband and NEW FAMILY who accepted me and who have been so patient in helping to teach me about my Deen .. alhamdulillah .. Allah has blessed me so much .. allah Akbar

She called me crying saying that she was about to lose her job, and that she couldn’t afford that. I told her that she has forgotten who had given… her the job in the first place- Allaah. That He is the provider, and that He will help her find a better job in’sha’Allaah. This is a just a test for her. A fw hours after I spoke to her, subhana’Allaah- Allaah gave me an idea, He found her a better job. I told her that I there was a job who would accept her as she was, and that she would have the weekends off…subhana’Allaah. Don’t give up on your religion…be strong Allaah will always find a way out for you!!! Have trust in Him!
I wanted to share this with you all, because many of us when we begin to practice we think no one will accept our new way, and that we will lose our friends, our jobs, etc. Don’t be a people pleaser, please Allaah first, and the rest will fall into place.
May Allaah help all of our sisters and brothers around the world who are trying to come closer to Allaah to be strong. Ameen. Ya Allaah may you help us be patient and persevere through the difficult times. Ameen.
