In the name of God, the Lord of Mercy, the Giver of Mercy.
By the charging steeds that pant and strike sparks with their hooves, who make dawn raids, raising a cloud of dust, and plunging into the midst of the enemy, man is ungrateful to his Lord- And He is witness to this - he is truly excessive in his love of wealth.
Does he not know that when the contents of the graves burst forth, when the secrets of hearts are uncovered, on that Day, their Lord will be fully aware of them all?

Welcome to the family!
I hope you can take it easy, and to the best of your ability practice Islam. I can imagine there might be hardships because lack of Muslim friends or sense of community, insallah Allah will make it easier for you and show you the straight path.

Praise be to Allah who has led you from darkness to light. Do not follow people but follow teachings of Quran and the Authentic hadith. Hadith should be taken from these most authentic sources:
1. Imam al-Bukhaari
3-Imam Abu Dawood
6-Imaam Ibn Maajah
Another good source to get understanding of Quran is Tasfir ibn Kathir for the 'history' of Quran e.g when a Surah(Chapter was revealed and when etc.
ALWAYS ask for evidence and NEVER blind follow like how Christians or other faiths blind follow their leaders. Even a well learned Islamic scholar can make mistakes, (we are all human after all) and if they are sincere they are willing to be corrected and some actually take their words back when they make a mistake.
Mashaa'Allaah brother we are so happy upon hearing this great news and we feel honoured that you are part of this online community and shared this wonderful news with us. May Allaah subhanahu wa ta'ala bless you more and keep you steadfast in this true path Inshaa'Allaah Aameen.
In the name of The True Only One God, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.
