Wa Alaaykum Assalaam Laayla, Thank you so much for your advice! I appreciate you taking the time to help me out. I actually just heard about innervoice right after I posted this a few days ago, so I'm planning on going to the celebration this weekend for Imam Mehdi, a.s. (maybe we can introduce ourselves properly if you're also going :D). I did not know about the story time, though, and it sounds like a wonderful activity! And I also had no idea that masjids here gave Arabic classes!!! I mean, it just seems so counterintuitive, I guess. Thanks again and Fi Aman Allah!
Salaams everyone, This is my first time posting on shiachat though I've perused the forums many times before as a guest. I moved to Beirut last summer with my husband (he's from here, I'm an American convert with no arabic). While we are very close with my in-laws, because of the language barrier I'm having a very hard time making friends. I'm in the house most of the day with just my son (he's 2) and so there hasn't been much opportunity to just meet people. I've been getting increasingly lonely and so I thought I might try posting here. I'm really eager to meet other english speakers here in Beirut (just other ladies please, sorry brothers :P ) Thanks for reading this far!
