Safe Haven to Get Connected
Although New Muslims reverted to the Path of Islam, they face many challenges from their surroundings and they may loose friends, family members, their job, etc.
Therefore, AID can facilitate safe environment and resources where they can be connected with new Muslim friends who may encourage them, listen to them and be mentor to them.
If you are a New Muslim and would like to be connected, please contact sister Ruba on Whats App +1(972)207-1911 or email: Ruba_Qewar@yahoo.com.

This video explains to you how to make Wodu (Islamic Ablution) before the prayers: https://youtu.be/YMM1isI2ifc
This video explains to you how to do Salah (Islamic Prayer): https://youtu.be/tbdhUF4n6r0
This list of videos that help you memorize the prayers .. word by word.. just follow what I say and keep repeating with me.. and eventually you will get it: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRchAjhVGBHvxPyngTQGuKT9R5M4M7Ydd
If you are interested in learning more about Islam. These lectures will help you out.. You don't have to listen to them at once.. just one lecture a day would be more than enough.. don't rush into things and take your time learning: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRchAjhVGBHv-N3dXK7cPJYeBmJ9avjZo
If they are too long, then I broke them down to short videos so you may watch them in sha Allah: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRchAjhVGBHuR-Cjb037zegzsql3kIfOK
If you feel it's overwhelming, you may have the prayer written in front of you and read from your material while praying, repeating it over and over again (5 times a day) will get you to memorize it eventually.
Again you are not obligated to watch them all at once and I don't want to overwhelm you.. take it easy
Classes in Person and with Group
Each mosque (Masjid) must have a special program and activities for the reverts. However, this is not the case all the time (especially in the small mosques or remote areas). Therefore it was made easy to use the internet (especially zoom meetings) to boost the faith and the knowledge of Islam. Classes are conducted in person and on zoom at the same time by qualified speakers with topics are related to New Muslims and Reverts.
Please check our events to see when our regular classes in person and online are conducted

The statestics say that 30% of the reverts who enter Islam, leave it in the first 5 years for many reasons such as bad marriage, challenges with jobs and family members, bad Muslim encounters, depression, etc.. It is encouraged that the revert and their loved ones seek help with a professional and spiritual counselor.
