My Shahada Today!


Junior Member
Assalamu alaikum, my Brothers and Sisters:

I just took my Shahada a few hours and ago and I could feel a thousand pound weight being lifted off of me and a "natural" high like I've never experienced before!

I don't know if I posted this in my intro, but I was a raging alcoholic and a hard care drug user years ago. My drug of choice was Oxycontin, which is basically "synthetic heroin". I used all kinds of drugs with the exception of intravenous ones. Although I haven't used or drank in some time, I've been going through a very stressful time and had managed to push my Higher Power away and try to handle things on my own. I also recently came very close to a suicide attempt until Allah intervened and got me back in touch with a Muslim friend, who in turn encouraged me to read the Qu'ran, which in turn brought me to Islam.

Anyway, not only has my cold/allergies seem to have disappeared, but I feel like running a marathon. Mind you I have not been in shape for some time.

I'm just so happy right now and want to thank everyone here for your kind words. Now I need to work on my prayers and read the Qu'ran more. My Arabic skills I suppose will come in time.

Blessings to everyone!




Dear Sisiter,
Welcome to ISLAM. I feel really proud that ALLAH (SWT) is guiding so many new hearts to His light. Sister, Paradise is now for you. The more you practice your deen (ISLAM) the more your position/rank would be elevated in paradise.

May ALLAH (SWT) keep you steadfast on ISLAM.

In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful

Indeed all the praises is due to Allah, we praise him and we seek his assistance and forgiveness, and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and our bad deeds, whoever Allah guides there is none that can misguide him and whoever is leads astray there is none that can guide him, and I bear witness there is no God other than Allah, He has no partners, and I bear witness that Muhammad is his servant and messenger.

Wellcome to ISLAM SISTER may ALLAH ,THE KNOWER OF THE VISIBLE AND THE INVISIBLE makes things easy for you .There will be upps and downs but if you hold on to the straight path you will acheive the peace that you always wanted and yes ISLAM is the remedy for everything just be true to ISLAM AND YOU WILL SUCCEED IN THIS LIFE AND THE HEREAFTER .

I ask Allah to increase your knowledge, your faith and your awareness of Him! I ask Allah to make you among the pious Muslims and to safe guard you from any harm! I ask Allah to forgive us all Muslims, and I thank Allah for the blessings He has given us as Muslims......for if we have not had Allah, So many of us would not be here at this time, because of lost of hope, streessfull life we'd chose to end our sorrow and suffering, BUT Allah is our HOPE, He is OUR everything! We thank Him and we seek His forgivenes, mercy and we Hope the best from Him!
