  2. Bismillah Ta'la I think there is some misunderstandings regarding my establishing of the group Migration313 and the intention behind it. I have heard comments from some brothers and sisters that now we, as reverts, are trying to set up our own tribe, gang (lol), sect, or national group. I want to be clear, that this is not my intention, but rather my intention is to integrate new muslims with the communities where they live. But this integration is a process, and I know of many reverts that have left Islam (both literally or by separating themselves from the community) and at least partially because this process of integration was not handled correctly by the community in which they found themselves in when they reverted. Islam exists within a context of other identities, such as national, tribal, cultural, etc. The vast majority of muslim don't realise this because most of them are born within a community in which these identities are common to all members of the community. Most or all of the people with which they establish relationships and friendships are also members of this same community with all these identities. They may come in contact with people who are from a different community, but they are never obligated to form relationships with them beyond very superficial, transaction based ones (employee, manager, customer, vendor, etc). Nigerians stick with Nigerians, Arabs with Arabs, Pakistanis with Pakistanis, Iranians with Iranians, etc. They are all muslims, but have very little if any interaction with other muslims who are not from their same community. I am now speaking specifically about America, and probably also Canada, UK, and Australia. Since there is no large, integrated muslim community composed of people who's ancestors arrived many generations ago, most of these muslims are forced to integrate into whatever recent immigrant community they happen to be closest to in terms of geography. So at the same time as they are adopting a new religion, they are also dealing with a brand new culture, probably also language, new people which are not related to them, food, smells, customs, etc, etc. At the same time, they are probably either now isolated from their own family and friends, or are dealing with strained relationships with these people. At the same time, they are dealing with comments, distrust, and suspicion from members of their new muslim community. At the same time, they are usually still physically present in the same community, in terms of geography, where they have lived their whole life (dystopia). Dealing with any of these issues, one at a time would be stressful but manageable for most people. But to deal with all of these simultaneously is something which most non reverts can't imagine. At the same time, at least amoung the follower of Ahl Al Bayt(a.s), in these above countries, there is very little in terms of sustained, organized efforts to help new muslims. So the goal of Migration313 is to try to help these new muslims to negotiate and manage this critical period between their Shahada and when they are integrated into the muslim community. In my experience, this period lasts between 5 to 10 years. After this period, they are 'integrated' meaning they still have their own cultural identity and are a capable, confident muslim/a, but at the same time have developed a relationship with the muslim community that serves their needs. They have reconciled these two identities. If you wonder why there are not more reverts to Islam in 'Western' countries even though they have access to all the information about Islam through the Internet, this is why. They may be convinced of the truth of the religion (There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of God), but they are not willing to go thru the cultural transition and integration process and see this as something which is beyond their capacity to do. This is the main objection, and it has nothing to do with the truth or validity of the religion of Islam. There's even a term for this the Reverts 'Revolving Door'. I never questioned the fact that someday in the not too distant future, there will be a large community of muslims in all of these countries whose ancestors had not arrived recently (i.e. a native muslim community). The question is what kind of muslim community will this be ? Who will lead this community ? Salafi / Wahabis or Followers of Ahl Al Bayt(a.s). This is still an open question, but looks to be leaning in direction of the former and not the latter. I want to do my part to correct this, fe Sibilillah. If others would like to help, please help.
