Ok, no wahala. I don't need to start giving you long sermons, why? It took you some degree of introspection to get to the level of creating this thread not forgetting God's guidance.

Having said that, I think you will find this link useful http://muslimconverts.com/islam/newmuslimguide.htm

Don't mind the term "convert", focus on the knowledge there instead.

I hope I have been of assistance.

Re: Help A Muslim Sister Learn About Islam by Sexxydivaa: 5:05pm On Nov 25, 2012
thanks y'all. I did a good research on wat to say while praying. I understand its important to recite diff Surahs, with diff rakas, but dis r they ones i remr,bered,during ma childhood days,.Surah al-Ikhlas,,Surah “Al-Ma'un,Surah “Al-Kjausar,Surah “Al-Ma'un” al'fathiha,. Are these enough'.
I recently joined d female prayer group'asalatu', in my neighbourhood.i try picking from all they their recietation,.but getting only few.there's dis 10 recitation they make,i don't understand any,seem difficult.i'll appreciate more help.tnkx
Re: Help A Muslim Sister Learn About Islam by maclatunji: 9:04pm On Nov 25, 2012
^Most Alasalatu groups have a standard issue Prayer book that has Surats in Transliteration. Those should help your immediate recitation of short Surats. I will look for more online content you can use tomorrow insha Allah.

Don't get discouraged, you are learning slowly if you add steady to it, you can achieve much.

I wrote up an explanation of Surah fatiha, You can read it up on this thread.

If you like to read, you will find it useful.. The fatiha is the key to the prayer so understanding it is important.

These are the salat prayers spoken in Arabic, with a few duas included. So you should learn the pronunciation first then learn to make the necessary number of rakas for each prayer.

Salaam sis, try and read this book 'The Ideal Muslimah'.

Your environment also matters a lot. You need to get close to muslims who would help you grow in faith and stay away from those who have nothing to offer in your journey to righteousness.
Re: Help A Muslim Sister Learn About Islam by Sexxydivaa: 11:36am On Dec 03, 2012

^Salam, om menstruation read the following:


Menstruating women entering the mosque to listen to the khutbah

Re: Help A Muslim Sister Learn About Islam by maclatunji: 11:52am On Dec 03, 2012
Your prayers should be said in Arabic. Don't fall for the temptation of not doing so, relax and you will find it easy by the grace of God. Don't get overanxious over it.

Re: Help A Muslim Sister Learn About Islam by dominique(f): 10:16am On Dec 06, 2012
Welcome back to Islam my sister, may Allah make your journey to rediscovery a easy one. As a (re)convert myself, the biggest challenge I faced were the self-righteous people trying to make me realise my 'mistake'. Telling me all stories of gloom and doom and the likes. Don't let people like that waver your faith.
If you've haven't memorised Ayat-ul Kursiyu, I suggest you do so. Its very important when making special Dua and supplications. Its also a very strong weapon of the believer against shaytan and his agents.
Hope you give us updates on your progress and challenges through your journey smiley.

May Allaah richly bless you all for your blessed desires of success for this backsliden sister whom has asked for help. May The Most Merciful, The Most Compassionate bless her efforts. dominique has asked our sister to memorize the Ayat-ul Kursi which I've found in a three part video. We have some brothers that can help with the Arabic, I pray that they look in on this thread.

Congrats. May Allah continue to guide us.
This is the greatest giver of hope, in my opinion

Say, "O My servants who have transgressed against themselves [by sinning], do not despair of the mercy of Allah . Indeed, Allah forgives all sins. Indeed, it is He who is the Forgiving, the Merciful." Qur'an 39: 53

BTW there is a book for female converts/reverts. It can also be used by all Muslim ladies
A Hand Through the Door for My New Sister by Yasmin bint Ismail

Do you know it? If you do, did you read it? If yes, did you find it useful? If yes, I can volunteer to arrange to get her one copy

We also need to get her Fortress of the Muslim by Darussalam - a small comprehensive book of dhikr (words of remembrance) and dua (supplications). It is very cheap ($2 or less than N500 in Nigeria). We can add that to what to get for her
