Welcome to the program, Islam insight, a very special series essentially dedicated for a new Muslim brothers and sisters, how do we commit ourselves to gain knowledge regarding Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him like to know is he Junko compulsory for him, somebody told me that a Muslim is not allowed to have relationship with a non Muslim knowledge revives the spirit of Islam.
Brother, my question for you is, after accepting Islam, when you come back to our home countries,
families that are pressuring us to convert back to the religion that we used to have, how can we cope with this? Right, this is again, a practical challenge that a new Muslim goes through after accepting Islam, probably when he's almost in a Muslim country, he is very open his he gets a lot of support. But then when he goes back to his home country, he faces the actual difficulty actual scenario comes into his mind in front of him, how does he have to keep and cope these challenges? Number one, you need to make your mind prepared, and plan that you are going to face these challenges. So first thing you need to plan how you can handle these kind of challenges that will
for sure, come on your way, when you go back to your home. When you go back to your home country, when you go back and face your people. And when you say that, you know, when I go to this place, I've accepted Islam. Now I am a Muslim, when you declare that you are bound to have to get the reaction. So you need to plan how to cope up with these situations, number one, number two, you need to program your mind that no matter what kind of pressure that my parents are going to make upon me, I am going to be steadfast upon Islam. Because again, as people of the past, they faced trials, they live their own properties, their own families, their own lives at the cost of their faith, because
we can't risk our fate. At any cost. We can't put our demand at stake, we can't put our demand at risk our fate at risk. So you need to program number two, as a part of preparation to to face your family. When you go back home. You need to program your mind that you will never ever leave Islam no matter what kind of pressure that you face. So mentally, you will be prepared, you will be strong psychologically, you will be strengthened that no matter what kind of challenges, what kind of difficulties that you will face, you are programmed that I am going to be steadfast form on Islam. Third, you need to pray that may Allah subhanaw taala is your task when you tell this truth when you
share that you have become Muslim, with your family members, you need to pray to Allah subhanaw taala He is the one who is the change of hearts. He is the one who changes the hearts. He is the one who grants the softness in the hearts. He is the one who develops the love, mercy, compassion and affection in the hearts of the people. So when you pray to Allah subhanaw taala, especially in the last part of the night, when you pray to Allah subhanaw taala Oh Allah, I have accepted Islam for you. I'm leaving Islam for you. I want to remain on Islam for you. And I'm going back home. When I go back home, my parents, my family members, my relatives might pressurize me, Oh Allah, ease my
task for me, is my task for me so that I may be formed on Islam and ease my task for me so that I can in fact invite them to Islam as well. Pray. So first you do plan you program you basically pray. The fourth thing you need to perform, you need to perform an act which is prescribed in the Quran, by Allah subhanaw taala a very sound and
Beautiful way of removing the hatred in the hearts and minds of the people. And that is Allah Subhana. Allah says in surah facilite surah number 41. And number 34, Allah subhanaw taala says is the ability here acid repelled, remove the bad with the good when you go back home, if they do anything bad, do good to them. do good to them remove don't give the reaction of the bad with the bad,
do good if they do bad to you, they would be surprised. They would be amazed and strange. How come when we are neglecting him when we are you know humiliating or insulting or criticizing or making him embarrassed of his belief. He is being good to us. This will leave an impact a very positive impact on them. And sift. Again as I've mentioned to this brother, be patient when you go back home, be patient, there will be a time when you will face these kinds of situations. Be patient, be prepared for sacrifice. You see Allah subhanaw taala he says in the Quran in surah Allah Moran surah number three and number 92 Allah subhanaw taala says loan to Nando burrata to Cebu NEMA to Boone you

unless you sacrifice that which you love the most. So you need to be prepared to pay sacrifice. Keeping in mind that this life you might face difficulty you might face problems you might face situations which are very, very miserable. But you know for sure what is best for you in the Hereafter is far more better, far more long term and permanent inshallah if you do do these things when you go back home inshallah, this will help you hope that answers your question.
