  1. salam alaykum brother, check my profile to look for my contact info.
  2. Salam alaykum Sister, I am also a convert from Hinduism to Shia Islam. I converted to Islam 21 years ago at the age of 14. It seems as though we have been having a lot of queries lately regarding new converts/reverts from Hinduism. I felt like I was the only hindu who accepted islam back when i was younger and its good to see I am not the only one. Makes me feel a little less crazy. :) Anyway, with respect to food, I asked my Marja-e-Taqleed about my situation and I got a specific response that applies here. I really don't want to post it here since it may cause confusion with the general ruling. However please feel free to contact me and I can let you know of the response I got from my Marja. I also see that there are a few hindu converts/reverts here. Not to sound like a separatist, but I think it would be a good idea if we keep in touch with each other to help us through issues like these, marriage, tabligh and dawah to hindus, etc. I could have used the support of others when I recently accepted islam.
  3. Salam alaykum, If I understand correctly, you had posted in another topic about your family being hindu. I understand your situation since I also come from a hindu family being the only muslim. The fact that they are not ahlul kitab is a problem, however, I asked my Marja-e-Taqleed about the situation and gave me a response that specifically deals with my situation. I don't want to post it here because it may cause some confusion with the general ruling and it is a specific case, but if you want, you can contact me and I will be more than happy to explain the response I got from my Marja's office since it can be applied to your situation.
  4. Salam alaykum, I apologize that I am a brother but I too was once hindu and converted to Shia Islam. I converted at the age of 14 and been in the deen for more than 20 years now. I know what you are going though because the rest of my family thought and still thinks that I am out of my mind. Although my relationship with my family is not ideal, there has been a considerable improvement. My wife was also in a similar situation because her parents did not want her marrying me, a convert. They were afraid that I would go back to my "old ways." The ironic thing is that my inlaws are Khoja :). However, things between my in-laws and I are great after the birth of our little girl, Khadijah. The beautiful thing about my daughter is she had done more to bring my relationship with my family and my inlaws to a better situation than I had ever done. Children, especially babies, are the most effective people in softening the hearts of others. One thing to keep in mind though is you need to keep true to Islam. That is your only way out of this situation. That doesn't mean be militant and inflexible, but stay true to Islamic principles while being respectful and having good akhlaq. Time, adherance to Islam, akhlaq, and building a strong marriage and family are your tools in getting through this. If you need any help or assistance, I can put you in touch with my wife and she would be more than happy to help you. Wa Salam.
  5. Brother Hasan, Salam alaykum The ayah on the front of the shirt is a translation of Ayah 5:56. A translation is not technically Quran since it is a human interpretation of Allah's words in Arabic. Hence you can wear them in the bathroom. Wa Salam Ruhullah Jannati
