I was recently contacted by a sister who is struggling to find her place in society as a new Muslim. I gave the below advice to her and then thought I wold share it on here for anyone in the same situation. It is important to remember that not only new Muslims go through this; I also know many born Muslims who have a lack of confidence in their faith, and I myself continue to go through so many ups and downs.
I am not an expert. I am not a scholar. I can’t read in Arabic. Sometimes I forget to pray. Sometimes I doubt myself. But from my heart, here is my advice.
