Then set your face upright for religion in the right state-- the nature made by Allah in which He has made men; there is no altering of Allah's creation; that is the right religion, but most people do not know

(The Holy Qur'an: 30:30)  

 

 


 

 
 

 

 

 

 O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, 

and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most 

honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); 

surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.

 

The Holy Quran 49:13

Revert Muslims Directive

Assalaamu alaykum and Welcome to the Revert Muslims Association, Website and Forums

The Revert Muslims Association is a non-profit religious organization and humanitarian group that has been on line since 2005, brought about by a growing concern that little was being done for newly reverted/converted Muslims.

When new Muslims come into Islam they often find struggle. They are overjoyed and enlightened and ready to become part of the ummah, however due to cultural differences and divisions within the communities they are often left confused, alone and with many unanswered questions. Many find their families and friends no longer understand them and they do not know how to help reassure them, that their choice to be Muslim is a good choice, the right choice. The Revert Muslims Association means to improve this area within the Muslim communities. They wish to reach out and hold on to those new Muslims by offering them support and guidance and they hope to set an example for others to do the same. To leave these new Muslims alone to struggle for the truth without our support and guidance is wrong.

Itís true the numbers are hard to come by since there are no official statistics on reversions but itís estimated, by the French Interior Ministry, that in 2000 there were 40,000 converts to Islam. In this same year it was surveyed in the US that 30% of the participants at any given mosque were Reverts. Sunni Revert, Sarah Joseph, claims that anywhere from 10,000 to 50,000 people in the UK convert each year. 

Itís been reported that, roughly, 90% of all these new Muslims go to the Internet for their sources.  A huge majority of these new Muslims are, sadly, being misguided.  

We have managed to achieve the number one spot on the search engines, using key words as Ďrevert and Muslimsí.  When new Muslims are guided to the Revert Muslim website they are then able to access various areas of information, including how to pray, how to interact with other Muslims, how to, essentially, live the life of a Muslim. They also have access to our Forums where by we have Moderators and Administrators standing by to offer support and guidance. They can even help to locate brothers and sisters who they can contact in their area.

Some facts:

Islam is a major world religion, with over 1 billion followers worldwide (1/5 of the world population). It is considered one of the Abrahamic, monotheistic faiths, along with Judaism and Christianity. Although usually associated with the Arabs of the Middle East, less than 10% of Muslims are in fact Arab. Muslims are found all over the world, of every nation, color and race.

Islam has become the fastest growing religion in the world and people are reverting daily. What many people are discovering is that Islam is not the violent, oppressive religion they first assumed. In fact Islam is a peaceful religion that enjoins tolerance, justice, mercy, and love. Where women find security and freedom while wearing hijab. When those curious about Islam begin to finally look for them selves they uncover a truth that ultimately changes their lives, either having them proclaim they are Muslim by reciting the Shahada or at the least this new discovery has them supporting the religion. Islam does, indeed, promote peace and if you read or hear otherwise, then bring it up on our forums so we can refute it. The word "Islam" actually means "submission to God." Therefore, "a Muslim is one who strives to submit to God (Allah)."

A united group of Muslims is a group that does not concern themselves with ethnicity and cultural differences. It is a like-minded group that comes together on common goals. It is a group that looks for the needs of those who are physically challenged, the orphaned, those in need of support or friendship. Their skin colour, age, gender are not judged by one another.   It is a group that finds strength in knowing that they will be accepted regardless of who they are, how they look and where they came from. This group has come together, here, at Revert Muslims. This spot on the Net is a place where they have come to discover that Islam is the truth and by following the religion given to them by the all Mighty Allah(swt) they can find peace, belonging, unity and a shared love for God and his believers. 

The words of Malcolm X can be added ; it is not only America which needs to understand Islam, but rather the whole world. 

From the moment the Prophet (pbuh) preached his message of unity under the worship of Allah (swt), did the light of hope shine forth in this World of darkness. 

The Revert Muslims Association - Plans to reach out.

We have become the number one resource portal for new Muslims around the world.  Reaching out to more then 85 countries and averaging up to one million hits per month, with thousands of new viewers. We have branched out to YouTube and various other platforms.

Those at the Revert Muslims Association are adamant preachers against racism and discrimination. The Revert Muslims and the members here stand against radical terrorist groups that call their actions in the name of Islam. 

They offer emotional support for those struggling with the negative responses from family members who do not understand the religion of Islam. 

The Revert Muslims Association plans a regular conference tilted, The International Revert Conference, which has become a much-anticipated event for many reverted and born Muslims.  It gives those reverted Muslims an opportunity to come together, in life, with those who can relate to their struggles, offer them support and bring a sense of belonging to them. They will continue to offer the International annual conference, provided they continue to hold a committed group of volunteers and they hope to extend it from North American to Europe. 

The Revert Muslims Association offers 'welcome packages' via the post that consists of hijab/turbah and prayer beads, with some extra instructional materials if required. 

Most importantly they offer an on-line community that brings like-minded people together, working towards a better understanding of one another and a better understanding of Islam. 

Long-term Future plans: To offer assistance to orphaned children and to create community centres welcoming in new Muslims in major cities around the world. 

Islam is both a religion and a complete way of life. Muslims follow a religion of peace, mercy, and forgiveness, and the vast majorities have nothing to do with the extremely grave events, which have come to be associated with their faith. Those who commit such crimes go under the name Muslim and state their actions under Islam but they are neither Muslims nor believers.

Allah(swt) does not look at the value of your faces and nor your wealths, but He looks at your hearts and your practices

~ Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
