i am a revert of13 years. Its been difficult to try a keep my relations with my non-muslim family and my husbands muslim family. i have made many changes over the years. My purdah offends some of my family. Also my not attending certain functions eg. a birthday, muslim wedding, with intermingling, music etc.
sometimes, its difficult to stand your groundbecause you dont have proof for everything even though in you heart you know its right.
Sometimes when i stand my ground and i feel like a hypocrite. Because i have faults in other ways, everyones expecting me to be perfect now and waitng for some fault to point a finger. These are muslims.
i have so many unanswered questions. what is/isnt permissible for a revert regarding their families. IS THERE ANY BOOK, INFO FOR PEOPLE LIKE ME THAT GIVES US GUIDANCE. OUR SITUATION IS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE RAISED IN MUSLIM HOMES.
Im sure there are others out there like me!
