Reading the Qur'an: It's Amazing!

I got my Qur'an in the mail a couple of days ago.  I've been reading it and the introduction booklets that came with it and it's hard to put down.  It is beautiful!  I am very excited about learning about Islam.  I didn't expect to be that impressed but I really am.  When I read it I feel peaceful and excited at the same time.  I wish that I could share this wonderful feeling with my DH, but he won't listen to it.  I wish DH would clear away the prejudices and negative expectations he has about Islam and look at it from a fresh start.  I don't think he ever will, though, which makes me very sad.

Islam isn't the only religion to get bad press because of a few extremists, but it probably has the worst press.  Christians who shoot abortion doctors or bomb clinics are extremists with ideas that most Christians do not share.  Islam means to submit to God.

I'm so excited.  I don't know where my journey will take me and I shouldn't make any more guesses.  I want to learn all I can and feel all I can.  After I have been reading the Qur'an for a bit longer I will start the book on Wicca.

This is such an exciting and important journey in my life.  For those of you reading my blog, thank you for coming along on this journey.  :-)

Oh, I did want to mention that I got my free copy of the Qur'an at

Salaam sis. I saw a comment from you on Ange's blog and decided to click on your profile. Swubhanallah, the challenges you face!

I know you aren't Muslim but I just wanted to say that Allah tests those He loves. Your tests are extreme, to be sure, and I have great compassion for you. However with great tests comes great rewards. I would like to urge you to continue your journey of exploration and learn more about Islam. :-)

I also want you to know I appreciate your open-mindedness and willingness to look outside the box. BTW I did also; I am a convert to Islam, not a born Muslim.

Take care and hope today is lower on the pain scale!

Umm Aaminah
