    Salaam! After several months of studying and reading the Qur'an, I am ready to say the Shahada and am going to meet the Imam at the local masjid tomorrow morning. I am so very excited about this major change in my life!

    Salaam aleikum, everyone! Thank you for the welcome. Yesterday went very well. My daughter came with me. She will choose to revert next, inshallah!

    I was involved with a Muslim man for two years. Seeing the evidence of his faith in his life everyday made me realize how much I was lacking spirituality in my own life. He told me little bits about the religion, and it made me want to know more. Eventually, I searched online and started to read a lot. I ordered a translated Quran and piles of other books about Islam and Arabic.

    The man I was involved with was so happy and we got engaged. I was planning to say the shahada next month, when we were to be married. However, last weekend, we had been house shopping all week, and he was stressed and overwhelmed. He freaked out and said he tried, but he couldn't do it. He sent me away and really hasn't talked to me since. :(

    I figured that in light of what was going on, I shouldn't wait any longer to say the shahada. The imam knows my fiancé very well, and he knew all about our plans. He said he is certain that Allah wants us to be a family and that my fiancé will come around. He told me to pray to Allah to join and protect our family. That is what I am doing.

    When you say shahada there is just you and Allah. I wish you happiness.
