How eccepting are born muslims of women who convert to Islam?

Im christian and have been thinking throughly about converting to Islam.

I grew up in a catholic/prodestant house hold and family and now feel Ive never been lead on the wrong path, I struggle to believe Jesus is "Gods" son (and ive heard he's supposed to be god) which I dont believe.

I do completly believe in God (not trinity)

I dont live near any local muslim communities and there is much prejudice where I live of those not Christian.

    THE PERFECT MUSLIM MOHAMMAD DID NOT KNOW WEATHER HE WAS GOING TO HEAVEN yes you heard me right,

    (Hadith al-Bukhari 5:266)

    “By Allah, though I am the Apostle of Allah, yet I do not know what Allah will do for me”. So what will it be for you also considering that you are a woman and as per islamic scripture women get hell.

    You cannot just be a muslim you have to choose your sect. So which sect you want to be in? Sunni, Shi'a, Ja'fari, Ismaili, Zaidi, Sufis, Ahmadiyya, Ibadi, Ijtihad, Salafi, Quranist, Alevi, Yazidi, Druze, Bábí, Bahá'í, Berghouata, Ha-Mim etc etc

    Pray that it should be the majority one otherwise you will get hell.

    Sunan Abu-Dawud: Book 40, Number 4579:

    Narrated Abu Hurayrah: The Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) stood among us and said': 'Beware! The People of the Book before (you) were split up into 72 sects, and this community will be split up into 73, seventy-two of them will go to Hell and one of them will go to Paradise, and it is the majority group"

    There is an authentic hadith saying 999 MUSLIMS out OF1000 will END UP IN HELL

    Bukhari :: Book 6 :: Volume 60 :: Hadith 265 Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri: The Prophet said, "On the day of Resurrection Allah will say, 'O Adam!' Adam will reply, 'Labbaik our Lord, and Sa'daik ' Then there will be a loud call (saying), Allah orders you to take from among your offspring a mission for the (Hell) Fire.' Adam will say, 'O Lord! Who are the mission for the (Hell) Fire?' Allah will say, 'Out of each thousand, take out 999.'

    I think you should research the religion before converting. You need to believe in the religion you chose before you convert, instead of converting just because you don't believe in yours. I think Islam is a wonderful choice, and I am heading that way myself. I am in the process of reading an English version of the Koran, and I think you should too. If you stop by the mosque, i am sure someone there will be able to answer some questions for you. They may even supply you with some literature .Many of the answers on your post show ignorance and misunderstanding of the religion. Islam has the highest respect for women, and I know you will be treated well.

  • With your obvious level of education, intelligence and sophistication you'll fit right in. I love the answers from muslims or would be converts in which anyone opposed to Islam is ignorant or 'doesn't understand Islam'. I have read the three translations of the Qur'an and researched Islam since 9/11 so it is with knowledge and understanding that I totally reject everything about this vile, medieval, irrelevant religion.

    I think you mean raised Muslims. Nobody is born with any religion.

    It's just like any other social group. Some people will be accepting, and some won't be. There's nothing magical about Islam that would make them different from anyone else in that regard.

    You're amazing! Muslims are so happy when they meet converts. Any muslim would happily treat you as a member of their family. Not at arms length, don't worry. I also have the strange explanation mark as my avatar. I preferred the smiley face!

    Peace.

    Muslims are very welcoming when you convert to Islam, you will make many muslim friends who will welcome you to their household and treat you as part of the family, you will even be called a sister/brother since thats what we muslims believe we are. Dont listen to all the bad stuff that people tell you about islam, it is a beautiful religion with many welcoming brothers and sister, i agree with what spanish muslim has said, go to the ramadan section and you will get alot of help there inshallah.

    congratulations and i hope everything goes well for you.

    Peace, (a muslim sister)

    Well if you want to emulate a prophet who abused and married a 9 yr old girl, lusted after 11+ wives, sex slaves (Maria the copt), had fought 63 bloody battles, as your ROLE MODEL, then hardly anybody can convince you with logic

    How about becoming Buddhist, the religion teaches peace and harmony between nature. It is great, and something completely different from Western religions.
