I have accepted Islam but don’t know where that leaves me with my family?
MCN cannot stress enough the importance of maintaining a strong and cordial relationship with your family, it has proven to be the best means of Dawah. This may not be straightforward as they may feel that you have made a mistake and may even wish you to return to your old life. Islam teaches patience and you’re going to need a lot of it whilst dealing with your family. Take a day at a time, try to explain why you have accepted Islam and how Islam has made you a better person. Avoid confrontation at all times, it’s better to walk away and return when tempers cool. Golden rule: remember that your very person is an embodiment of your faith and you need to show how this faith has brought out the better in you.
