Ask The Imam Question and Answer

773 Insha’Allah I want to revert to Islam but my parents are against this. I neither want to hurt nor stay in this religion knowing that Islam is the purest. Please help me on how I can convince them. Jazakallah.
It is very important to perform the Shahadah as soon as possible, when you are whole heartedly convinced that Islam is the right religion. The reason this should be done is because no one knows how long they have got to live. Also when you become a Muslim your actions are rewarded and hence you can save yourself from sins as a non believer and do actions that gain you reward.

As regards to your parents, educate them about Islam and also explain your reasons, approach them when its suitable to discuss rather then to argue; Inshallah they will accommodate your choice, but do not hold back from making your Shahadah.

Another Important point to remember is that many Sahaba (R.A) (Companions of the Holy Prophet (S.A.W)) accepted Islam even when their parents opposed it.

The Holy Prophet (S.A.W) said that be obedient to your parents even if they are Non Muslims, apart from those actions which are against the Religion of Islam. And Allah (S.W.T) knows best.

May Allah give you the strength and ability to revert back to Islam and in the process keep intact the good relations you already have with your parents and Family. We also pray that one day they too will, through you, have the blessings of reverting to Islam. Ameen.
