Need help in London

Recommended Posts

Assalamo alaikom all, I hope this is the right place to post this topic...if not please indicate me which is the best forum to post in.

I am an Italian-Lebanese moslim and I am planning to change my life moving from Italy to London because the life here is a bet complicated...I am 45, married and have 4 children. I don't have any contact in London and I was wondering if there is any brother/sister that can give me some info/indications about life and possibilities in the UK.

Ajarakom Allah all.

Websites such as monster.co.uk will give you an idea of the relevant employment opportunities. There are also various estate agents/realtors sites you can use to assess the costs of buying/renting property (e.g. rightmove.co.uk) .

Once you get an idea of where possible employment/residence is likely to be, you should we able to work out which 'borough' you will be in. This will dictate choice of schools, because education is delivered on the basis of borough of residence.

Other than that, you'll find it possible to reach Shia centres from almost anywhere in the capital. Halal food etc. is available more or less everywhere as well.

Feel free to come back with any more specific questions.

    • Salam Zahra, It's totally not abnormal for someone young like you to be afraid of death. You know most people don't fear death itself but what comes after it. So what you should do is calm down and understand why you fear it. And then try not to think about it that much. Occupy yourself with something like exercising, reading, or hanging out with friends. And don't just read Quran and pray just out of fear but understand why it's good for you do those things. Ask for somebody's, like family, opinion or perspective, that can help very much you know. I hope this helps you inshallah
    • Fair enough. If way back then, the texts said, Man was created from hydrocarbon - I doubt it would make much sense to anyone so bad analogy. Thanks. Jesus also said he has not come to destroy the Law but fulfill it and anyone advocating not following the law is least in the Kingdom of God.      
    • Salam I would like to study in Iran but I don't know how to apply from here,  I'm from Pakistan. If anyone can help me with this I'll be really grateful for their helpp
    • Salam, Does anyone have really good quotes about knowledge and learning by Imam Ali?
    • Salaam  I'm Zehra,  and I would like to discuss a problem I've been facing for a while now.  The problem is that I can't sleep in darkness after my grandfather died in March 2017 and after his death I've started fearing death ALOT.  Like ALOT,  this fear doesn't let's me sleep at night and I can't feel anything. It's just like that I'm physically there at a place but not mentally, my soul isn't there with me I don't feel the same. I don't know what to do honestly I have no idea what's happening I need help to overcome this fear and be close to Allah. I'm 15 so I wasn't very much towards Islam but now I feel that I should start to give my time to praying and reciting Quran. I hope someone understands what I'm trying to say.
