    Hi, I am convert as well with both my parents non- muslims.I did many things when I was young (now I’m 24) but when I converted I left my old life behind. Of course my mom and dad just did not agree thinking I became a brainwashed arabic or something like that.But as the time went by they just had to accept my decision about my new life and now they still feel a bit strange when they see me wearing the hijab but that’s my life and it makes me happy and confident when I see people smiling at me with respect instead of laughing and criticism.
    I am so happy we have you as a new sister! As I live close to London and regulary going on sisters day please feel free to drop me a mail if you need advice or simply want to have a new sister friend!

      Salam Kenza!
      Thank you for your comment! Hopefully I will be able to achieve wearing a hijab around my family one day but it doesn’t seem like that will be any time soon.
      I would love to go to some sister activities with you! Where about do you go?

    Mash’Allah. First of all i’d like to say congratulation sister about converting to islam and Allah (s.w.t) gave you alot of tests and still you never stood back, you just had that courage and realised that Allah (s.w.t) was with you all the way. Also, what about brother tariq do you still talk to each other?
    May Allah (s.w.t) keep us steadfast in our religion.
    AMEEN :)
