WHO WE ARE

our story

New Beginnings was formed in 2020 and launched officially on the 1st of Ramadan (23rd April) 2020 (1441) after recognising the need to provide support, companionship and education for those who have adopted the religion of Islam after having no faith or a previous faith and those who are not Muslims but exploring Islam for the first time.

New Beginnings aims to create welcoming, non-judgemental environments and spaces that nurture a sound and authentic experience of Islam. We strive to meet these needs in a way that genuinely appreciates a person’s circumstances whilst understanding the importance of preserving one’s individual and cultural identity.

Not Ready

Islam, you keep pulling me in
Allah is pulling me closer

And how will I navigate through
The waters of islamophobia

How would I live in a majority non-Muslim Country and thrive as a convert

So many worries but also,
So much comfort as my path begins to unfold

our mission
& approach

The concern for converts to Islam is an area that has been much neglected for decades. The number of converts to Islam in the UK, and abroad, is growing exponentially, with two-thirds of them being women. Despite the noble efforts of a few small organisations, this need has not been fully met as of yet. We aim to fill the gap via a combination of innovative methods with a strong basis in the Islamic tradition and the way of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ. People who convert to Islam generally have a whole myriad of needs. We aim to fulfil and serve the needs of those new and old to Islam in a holistic manner.
