My first Ramadan!
« on: July 06, 2013, 03:45:51 PM »
Hey everyone, this is my first Ramadan ever: I have been looking online and at my mosque for information about the duties and I feel like I can do it. Do you have any advice for me?

I sincerely thank Allah for guiding me to Islam through Answering-Christianity, and I will always be grateful to Osama for his work. May Allah reward him grant him peace and blessings.

It started out with me looking for excuses to deny Islam and Answering-Islam was the site I would always visit to keep me from Islam: everytime I felt my faith in Christianity was weak, I look at anti-Islamic sites to make my faith in Christianity stronger-and it worked for a while. Suddenly I found myself at the rebuttals in this website and I got myself a Quran and within a year, I converted to Islam officially. Its kinda Ironic I converted to Islam from anti-Islamic websites. And I sincerely thank Allah for taking me on this journey.

I will be observing my first Ramadan, hope everyone has a great month!

Asalamualaikum,

Its my first ramadam to!! After reverting to Islam 11 months ago. Alhamdulillah.

We seem to have a similar story except I was athiest. I would go on anti-islam sites trying to deny the miracle of the Quran.

And it generslly worked due to my arrogance. But when I decided to go to my local mosque and listen to what they havr to say. I heard the recitation of the quran and that veil of arrogance was removed from my heart and I could deny no longer.
May Allah keep us steadfast in the religion ameen.

May Allah make your ramadam easy! Ameen!
