Investigating Islam

The last month as I have really looked at Islam there is much that can attract someone, but there are the things that can turn someone away as well. I am sure this is common in every faith that I can think of.

Yesterday I volunteered with a Christian organization and got into an interesting conversation with another volunteer. She too is checking out Islam.  We were talking about some of the things that are likely to happen if we revert.

Here is my list:

  • First I will have to find a job that is more appropriate
  • Wearing the hijab will turn heads especially since I chair my daughters school parents organization.
  • Getting up to pray when I would rather sleep.
  • My family would likely disown me.
  • No more looking at men

Now some of these are serious concerns and others well they wouldn’t bug me. Islam I am realizing is not a religion for the faint of heart. You need to realize that here in the west you are turning your back on so much you were raised with and embracing a new faith and a new way of life.

    1. I am always pesimistic if western study Islam. Are they willing to be regulated by Islam? Maybe the western always praise a freedom.
      Just learn Islam carefully.
