"Finding God: A Workshop for new and old converts and friends" is designed to help Muslim converts and friends to negotiate their new way of life.
In the first part of this workshop, interesting convert stories are supposed to motivate and strengthen our new found conviction. We will feel that we are not alone with our conversion. We will feel more connected with Allah and with our fellow Muslim brothers and sisters.
In the second part of this workshop, several issues especially concerning converts and friends are discussed. Here again, the aim is to empower and help in the on-going process of conversion. Topics discussed are: how to deal with one's non-Muslim family, how to find good teachers and guides to support our conversion process and how to go about with all the new teachings and regulations.
The third part of this workshop is concerned with several important issues in a Muslim's life. We will discuss fasting in Ramadan, love for the Prophet (pbuh) and setting our priorities straight.
