Becoming a Muslim

Salam. Welcome.

Becoming a Muslim can seem like a daunting thing to do. It looks as if there is much that you have to learn.

What we would like to do on these Learning Islam pages is to take you through the very basic first steps of beginning to practice life as a Muslim.

The key thing to remember in everything is slowly, slowly

You cannot learn how to be a Muslim all in one go. You must do things in easy manageable stages, step-by-step.

If you try to do too much at once, you will just exhaust yourself and become very confused and frustrated.

Think of yourself as a new baby, learning how to walk.

At first you won’t be able to manage to walk at all.

Soon you will be able to manage few steps. You might end up stumbling and falling down a few times – but your walking will get better and better until you are steady on your feet and the trips and stumbles become fewer.

If you rush things, you are going to fall down a lot and become very frustrated.

Remember :-

  • step-by-step
  • slowly, slowly
