Did she know you were considering converting?

Peachy Sat 20-Sep-08 15:40:51

Give her some time- unless of course you are evil, she'll realise she needs to balnce her ideas

could be worse

you could be a humanities student!

Peachy hopes she remembered right and that its Rivens mum who only values scientists

What stood out the most for you.

Damn- close!

Islam is a great faith. I read the Qur'a (obv) and it doesn't quite work for me but actually reading it gave me great respect for the faith

Some people have such issues with religion in general. I got baptised a year ago and despite being shockingly the same person before and after there have been snidey remarks that have left me in tears.

I admire you for converting to Islam. I have read some fabulous things in the Quran which really puts it much better than the Bible but I ended up accessing God through Christianity as that was culturally easiest to do as the framework is right here. I really envy the Muslim sisterhood though.

Obviously I'm a bit pathetic in "shopping around" for a religion, sigh.

beeny Sat 20-Sep-08 17:08:02

You dont sound pathetic.I have close friends from every background.The biggest thing for me in religion is that i am reminded what goes around comes around

Hey riven
Sorry it didn't go well. Would praying for you, your mum & MIL be ok?
