I want to revert to Islam- My husband will never understand

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Sister Allah swt has guided you to the religion of truth. There is no harm in temporarily practicing Islam in secret but you cannot do it forever. Islam can never be hidden, it has to be announced loud and clear. It is a matter of great honor and pride to be called a Muslim.

If you do not establish your regular obligatory prayers in their prescribed time you cannot be counted as a Muslim. Fasting in Ramadhan is obligatory too.

Sister, you have to think hard and make a solemn decision. If your husband loves you he should understand your passion for Islam. You have to propagate Islam to your husband if you profess to love your husband. Can you imagine what you will answer your husband on the Day of Judgement when he will question you why you did not preach Islam to him. How will you bear him being thrown into the hell fire when you could have saved him. The point is to try and if he refuses then it is his decision.

The children that you love so much, should also be exposed to Islam and reared in an Islamic atmosphere. Sister Islam is a way of life and cannot be done secretly. If your husband does not revert in time you might have to take a drastic decision as it does not behove a believer to remain married to an infidel.

Your trial is severe and we feel for you. Do not give up hope but put all your trust in Allah swt alone. He will find a way for you, InshaAllah. Keep on making as much supplications to Him as is easy for you. We will also join you in prayer to our Lord Creator to make your trials easy.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is only ones. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brothers and well wishers in Islam,
