How can we effectively help our revert brothers and sisters learn about Islam, remain steadfast on the path and find all the help and support they need?
This question really needs long and deep thinking from us. It needs reflection. It needs empathy for our brothers and sisters, putting ourselves in their shoes, and doing for them what we would want others to do for us.
We are asking this question now as it has become more and more pressing. Through our Customer Support Department at ProductiveMuslim, we have come to interact with many revert brothers and sisters. As a result, we are always asking ourselves this question: “What can we sincerely do for Muslim reverts?”
We have come to realize that there is more for us to do, in order to be more productive and beneficial members of their lives.
So, we would like to open this space to discuss the issue with all of you.
- Beyond the Shahada, what do we do to make sure our revert brothers and sisters are well supported on their new journey?
- What do you do to ensure you help new Muslims around you?
Please share your thoughts and reflections with us here in the comments section.
If you are a new Muslim, please tell us what you would want to see from your Muslim brothers and sisters, and how Muslims have (and have not!) helped you in the past. If you are a born Muslim, please tell us about the most effective acts you have done, and the most ineffective acts you think must be avoided while helping our brothers and sisters.
Let us strengthen our unity and be there for one another like never before. The time is here. So, let’s hear from you what we can do to achieve that.
