Assalamuwalaikum Irish girl and Faceof Angel my muslim sisters. Salaam to all others also. I love my fellow muslims for the sake of Allah swt. A person loves another and feels close to them depending on what they are upon like beliefs and way of life etc. So obviously those who Worrship Allah alone and dont associate partners to him and except and follow the final Prophet Mohammed s.a.w are those who are closet to us. Irish girl, Although there is no doubt that hijaab is fard / compulsory Iunderstand that it can take time for ppl to ajust. When i began practising 13 yrs ago, i didnt stop smoking imediately nor did i grow me beard which is also fard/ wajib. However, i continued to keep the right company and continued to seek knowledge of Allah swt and islaam. I also continued to ask allah to increase my imaan. Soon after I stopped smoking and began to grow my beard to follow the way / sunnah of the messenger s.a.w.....I cant recall if its in the Qran or Hadith where it says when you have taken shahadah, u have only become muslim but imaan has not entered your heart yet. In other words we have to build our imaan particulary through knowledge. Ppl somtimes shy away from knowledge thinking they dont want to learn more do's an donts as they may be more sinful if they dont impliment them. Well I would recommend seeking knowledge about the cread/ aqqedah / beliefs of islaam and the Tawheed / Onenes and Uniquness of Allah. When a persons Love, fear and trust in allah increases through this and through the mercy of Allah, then implimenting the actions and forms of worship like prayer, hijaab and for men the beard...becomes easy. Inshalah. This is What was taught first during the 13 yrs in Mecca b4 the migration to medina. My final words sister ar to say that muslim women are not allowed to marry non muslim men. Plus remember any children from the maarriage are likely to be more influenced by the way of life/ opinions/ beliefs of the Father. kindest regards to all, walay...
Everyone is different, and as I reverted so time ago, I feel there is still so much to learn. Firstly, wearing a hijab is a personal choice.In places like Turkiye there are just as many girls who do not wear hijab as that do. I too may consider it once I find the right man. Dressing with modesty is important if only so that you do not attract the wrong sort of man, who sees woman as a sexual object. As for haram/halal, as time passes you will become more knowledgable. In my case I cannot get halal meat where I live, but I am very careful and look at ingrediants to make sure there is no geletine, for instance I have halal marshmellows sent to me for my kids :) I would strongly recommend that you seek Muslim men only, as it can be very difficult to live an Islamic life in the US, and you do not want to make it more difficult for yourself, a Muslim man will help you on the right path. If you would like to talk more faceofangelATcanadaDOTcom is where you can find me. Peace be with you my sister
