Assalam alaikum, I pray you are all in good health. I hope this is okay to put up, if not, accept my apologies. I joined this site to gain a little network of people who I could potentially make friends with. I am a Welsh born and raised 27 year old convert to Islam living in Lancashire, I am a Muslim first and foremost and after five years of studying the religion and encountering issues with people, I do not ascribe to any particular ideology, especially those that have parts that go against the Qur'an and the virtues of a Prophet, peace be upon them all. I say this because the maddhab I entered has contradictory elements to the two things I mentioned. I am looking to make and meet friends from Lancashire, Manchester, West Yorkshire or that general area. Anyone from these areas on here? Due to my ideological stance and my mental health (anxious, not psychotic, don't worry!), making friends has been very hard, I have had more glares than handshakes. I have never wanted to be treated exceptionally, my status as a convert means nothing, I don't want special treatment, I just want to be treated as a Muslim should be treated by another Muslim. I may be talking to an empty room, but I would like to find someone like-minded and mature. Someone who does not hate the others within our religion, I see many people on here who are very decent in this manner. Masha'Allah the attitude on here is better than a lot of Sunni attitudes regarding yourselves. I have come to follow and respect the scholarly opinions of people like Sheikh Hassan Farhan Al-Maliki, Dr.. Adnan Ibrahim, Ammar Nakshawani and some maliki scholars. Ayatollah Khamenei is someone I respect in global politics too. In terms of religious books besides scripture, I enjoy reading Ali ibn Hussain's works. Being a father to two very young children, my interests and hobbies take a backseat, but I like different cultures, cuisines, language, foreign language films, football, history and current affairs and travel (though I haven't done much recently). I say an empty room because I am not a typical Muslim in today's society I feel, when I hear of people with similar mindsets it fills me with joy, but they are always several thousands of miles away. I only ask for one friend, not hoards, my anxiety makes large crowds difficult, but one is okay. I feel I cannot completely talk to my Sunni friend about this, he is a very mature and understanding convert like me masha'Allah, but some topics I feel I should not mention in case I anger or upset him. Anyway, I don't know if this post is appropriate, but I don't know how else to reach out to people, until they make friendship apps for lonely and insecure Muslims, what else can I do? So if boxes are ticked or you know someone who sounds ideal, let me know somehow. Jazak Allahu kheir.
