Upadhyay It is sad but true that movements launched by various organisations in the name of championing the cause of Indian Muslims have in fact not only kept them in a closed society but also have caused tremendous harm to them.
Pew research statistics highlight that Islam is predicted to be the dominant religion of the world by This is not simply due to conversions.
The fact that a Muslim family typically has more children than other religious families also contributes to this growth. Islam does have a high rate of reverts, with a majority of women, accepting the faith. Yet, How islam has formed organisations that ignore the darkness that eclipses this beautiful fact.
Many reverts become apostates. This is what we hear from imams who pastor to convertswe hear this in revert chat groups. Based on my experience, I did not say some of them, I did not say a few of them, I said many, if not most. Why are reverts leaving Islam?
After all of that sacrifice and hardship which come with the territory, after being rightly guided and accepting the oneness of Allah why would they then decide to leave?
The overwhelming emotional state you will see in any revert group — online and offline— is one of isolation and lack of acceptance. It is neither the lifestyle nor their beliefs. You are so great! Like a child we are entering a new life, a new way of thinking and perceiving the world.
Many assume others are helping us or have become our friends when truthfully, most of us spend our Eids alone and we break fast alone. Many of us have never even stepped foot into the house of another Muslim.
Majority of reverts are alone in their walk of faith. Get more of our great articles. Last Ramadan, I stopped going to community iftars. I regret it, but I did that for one reason. Sure, people that know me greet me with kind words and some of the sisters in my community have beautiful hearts, but I end up eating by myself.

We are left without any support network or other believers around us, and we try to brave the disbelieving world alone. How many born Muslims find it hard to live in a society full of Islamophobia and traditions that go against their lifestyle.
Reverts typically do this alone. The Left and the Right Often, we are told this is haram, that is haram, you need to stop doing that. Yet, the earliest Muslims focused on aqeedah before legislation, so why are we expected to become an Islamic scholar overnight?
One sister told me I was like ISIS, because I stated that only sexual acts within the sanctity of a permissible marriage are considered halal forms of intimacy. We are told on the left that we are too strict and we are told on the right that we are not strict enough.
We are searching for where we belong, but the truth is we are strangers in this world.
Strangers in our western society where we grew up and strangers in the Muslim community because we are different. We all have our own unique stories of what led us on this path, but after taking our shahadah, the stories become all too similar. Slowly, we lose most if not all of our friends, not necessarily because they judge Islam, but because our lifestyles are so vastly different.
Some reverts are shunned by their own family. Some of us are blessed and have some family that try to understand Alhamdulillahbut all too often many lose the majority of their loved ones. We give up our past identity and our very way of life. All we have become accustomed to is changes.
The person we were prior to shahada is gone. Imagine for a second, truly sit back and imagine if you walked away from the life you have always known and changed yourself from the inside out in a massive way.
Cutting yourself off from what you have always known and have always been, in order to willingly adopt a completely new lifestyle.KOZHOKIDE: A Salafi preacher has lashed out at Muslim organisations for cleaning up temples and offering prayers there as well as in churches during the recent Kerala floods, describing such acts as among the most detested in Islam.
