Convert Care is a Neglected Duty and We’re Doing Something About It

Every day in the UK, at least one person converts to Islam. The conversion is usually met with elation from the Muslim community but there is often little done to take care of the complex needs that they may have or at times, a lack of understanding of what those needs are. That’s where we come in. With a diverse team, made up mostly of converts from diverse backgrounds, we have the knowledge and experience to offer a holistic package in order to ensure the smooth transition of the convert into the wider Muslim community. We strive to meet these needs in a way that truly appreciates a person’s circumstances, whilst understanding the importance of preserving one’s individual and cultural identity.

Social Events

Regular social events where converts can network with other converts and share their experiences.

Learning

Regular classes and access to sound Islamic scholarship with guidelines for the most appropriate course of study.

Support and well-being

Ongoing encouragement and counselling, if need be, from qualified counsellors.

Expression

We offer safe platforms for converts to express themselves, free of criticism and judgements.

God calls us to adorn beautiful patience. This is done by preparing for trials while life is easy so that when a tribulation strikes us our knee-jerk reaction at the time is reliance on God. Seek patience through prayer, reflection & mindfulness. May God grant us unshakable trust and beautiful patience 🤲🏽..#patience #life #tests #prophetmuhammadﷺ #wisdom #seekgod #islam #convert #revert #islam #hadith #narration ... See MoreSee Less

Testimonials

A very relaxed and welcoming atmosphere where I feel comfortable to discuss and ask questions. I love the holistic view of Islam and focus on spirituality. As a new Muslim, it feels like a safe space to open up.

- Sophie, Manchester

It is hard to sum up in just a few words how amazing New Beginnings is and how much it has changed my life in just 8 weeks… After almost 30 years since I first learned of Islam, due to the kindness and support of the New Beginnings team I took my shahada a week ago and, alhamdulillah, I will never look back.

- Monica, Belfast

Convert socials have been a confidence booster for me and a chance to meet other converts in similar and different situations to myself. It gives us all reassurance that we are loved and there is a community among us all and that we aren’t alone. The things we learn, the people we meet, and even the chats we have, all mean a lot and gives me good reminders and positive things to think about. Always makes me smile 🙂

I have found a lot of benefit from the course, Sheikh Bilal is amazing and the prayer part of the course is very beneficial and answered a lot of questions I had, also finding out about ablution and the correct way to perform it. Thank you!
Imran, subhaan Allah, he does the spirituality side of the course and it is absolutely beautiful he beautifies it really well it touches your heart, the whole Firm Foundations is a fantastic course and I am very grateful and proud that I have been able to benefit from it. And I know it will carry on to benefit many more people. May you all be rewarded, Allah subhanallah wa tala bless you all.

- Marissa, Oldham

What I found in these sessions that I participated in this year is that it’s a great environment for nurturing new converts. The best I have come across in my
experience.

- Alan, Scotland

Friendly and informal atmosphere. I enjoy the interactive discussions. As a convert, I needed a space to learn in like this. Thank you so much!

- Anonymous

Embracing Islam is a beautiful but challenging journey. Every day comes with struggles, however, these difficulties are certainly eased when you have a strong faith and you discover strength in your difficulties. New Beginnings has truly provided me with high-quality and reassuring discussions, where I have been able to increase my knowledge of Islam but moreover, learn more about the beauty and spirituality of being a Muslim.
