Good Advice for New Muslims

New-beginings

1. Practice Islam as much as you can

“He who loves my Sunnah has loved me, and he who loves me will be with me in Paradise.”

-The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) (Tirmidhi)

As a new Muslim, you will have trouble keeping up with prayers every day, fasting during Ramadan, and the many other practices in this religion. The struggle that we face, with such a radical change in lifestyle, is difficult and will take some time. Awkward moments are bound to happen, don’t fret. You are not expected to wake up at 4am every morning to pray tahajjud (extra night prayers). If you have problems with certain practices, then gradually work yourself into the mindset of worship. A counsellor once told me when I was young, “How do you eat an elephant? Just One bite at a time.” Think of it as one step at a time. Pray to Allah and ask for Him to make it easy for you and the rest will come naturally.

Keeping up with your devotional practices is something that will strengthen your faith immensely. Read the Qur’an whenever possible. Find a collection of hadith, such as Riyadh us-Saliheen, and read it often. You will start to feel a connection to Allah and you will become used to Islam as a religion and way of life.

As Ramadan comes to an end, so do the increased opportunities for prayer. We may or may not get another Ramadan in our lives. This may be our last Iftar. Just before Iftar is a special time to ask Allah for everything you want. Allah loves hearing from us. The last night and day of fasting is a special day of Dua as well, considering that the Prophet has said that Allah makes decisions about our forgiveness that day. So here are some suggested Dua:

Duas before the last Iftar

If everyone in your family can break fast together, it will be great to make Dua together.

  • Oh Allah, please accept all of my prayers, fasting, and remembrance of You during this blessed month.
  • Please forgive me for the shortcomings in my worship and help me improve by next Ramadan.
  • Ya Allah, help me continue the good habits I have acquired during Ramadan.
  • Oh Allah, please make me of the righteous, the guided, and those You love.
  • Ya Allah, please guide me and my family to the Straight Path and help us become excellent Muslims for Your sake.
  • I worship only You and only from You do I seek help. Please increase Your bounty for me and my family
  • Ya Allah, Guide our loved ones, friends, coworkers, neighbors, classmates to the straight path for success in this life and hereafter.
