A few weeks ago I read a thread here from a new sister who was asking how she can learn Egyptian Arabic. She said that she is an American who lives in an Egyptian small town called Mahalla. I replied to her telling her that I live in the same town and it is my pleasure to offer her any help. I also sent her PM giving her my mobile number and she phoned me and later she came with her Egyptian husband to visit me. We became friends and she told me all about her story. She converted to Islam two years ago in America and then she knew an Egyptian guy through internet and after chatting for few months, she came to Egypt and they got married. After enduring difficult and humble life for more than a year, she found herself unable to interact with her husband's family because of the problem of language and other problems relating accepting and understanding others who are from different cultures. After some clashes with the man's family, she became sure that her husband can not support her, on the contrary he was violent to her till she stopped loving him. Now she wants divorce and he refused to divorce her. She felt that she was kept at home as a prisoner. She felt very desperate and this horrible feeling pushed her to try to kill herself. She took a lot of pills and her husband and his parents took her to hospital and she was saved. Now she refused to talk to anyone and all she wants is to leave the house and wander in the streets or she will try to kill herself again. She does not wanna go back to America. She does not wanna come to my house or even talk to me on phone or on my yahoo messenger as we used to do before. I can not go to her house either. I feel so sad and I do not know how to help her. I feel she is in a horrible situation. Yesterday I told her husband on phone to try to get her to my house and I can talk to her and convince her not to try to kill herself and we can find a way out for her problem. Her husband promised me that he will try to get her to my house, but till now they have not come and I am so worried about her and do not know what to do to save her and help her. Please, I do need your advice to help this new Muslim who came to my town and get trapped here.
