I am converting soon Inshallah. My husband is from Bangladesh and we have been together for 10 years, married for 6. We met very young, and so I have learnt a lot about Islam through his family and friends, and doing research myself.
I feel that it is now time for me to convert. I wanted to do it when I felt ready, and am happy that this time is now.
I was wondering if there were any other people thinking of converting, or who have recently or born muslims that would like to help (sisters)
I live in North London, and would like to form a friendship with a sister, who can come shopping with me for abayas and hijabs (I have some hijabs ready) and other modest clothing. And Eid clothing etc.
Although I have my sister in laws and friends, they never invite me to go shopping with them even though I ask, and don't feel confident to go alone. And would very much like some company, and Inshallah form a lasting friendship. I don't have many friends, I can count them all on one hand, and I have known them for a long time, but non of them are muslim.
A neighbour is kindly taking me to recite the shahadah at the Regent's Park mosque when I am ready which Inshallah the end of this month I will be.
Sisters, if you would like to help or make a new friend, I would like to hear from you.
