Personal experience of one woman from South Africa:
Page 2 of 2.
I grew up in a very strict Christian family, we used to attend morning and evening services, my dad was a Pastor. However for many years we were a happy family, but the last ten years of my parents marriage my father wasn't very fair with my mother.
I was always in conflict with my dad with regards to Islam, he actually scared me so much about people who are Muslims. He also taught me about the day when the truth comes out about the Pyramid with the eye on top of it, he said that that would be the end of earth. I forgot about that for 17 years until this year when I met friends from Mecca and Jiddah, my one friend gave me a book: Invocations from the Quraan and Sunnah: Fortress of the Muslim. There was one invocation nr 125: What to say when you fear you might afflict something with the evil eye. When I asked my dad to tell me more about this he said I am mad and he never taught me about this, which is a lie. So I as a revert follow what the Quraan says, in the last days if even your parents do not want to follow Islam you cut them off.
I met kids father he taught me a lot about Islam, how to make Salaah etc., I love this man so much and trusted him very much, he unfortunately became a drug addict and so did I. Eventually my youngest sister whom I let to stay in my house started having an affair with my husband, then they kidnapped my children, for 2 months I was looking for my children and since I do not drive I had to walk from area to area, and has because of this met a tremendous amount of interesting people from all walks of life. It was my sons 5th birthday, I used to call my mother and sister to ask if they know where my husband is with my kids, they used to tell me No, then one Jummah morning I tried to get up out of the bed where I slept for the night in Elsies River but couldn't walk. My heels was bleeding. About 2 hours after I woke up the man who drove the get away vehicle 2 months prior to this day found out I was staying there and came to fetch me and showed me where my husband and sister has been staying with my children inBelhar.
I forgave both of them it depressed me to find this out, but Allah kept me strong, years before this we went to Johannesburg that was the first time I was beaten blue eye and attacked with a wire hanger because I didn't want my husband to go out the Sunday night to another party since he has been out jollying since the Thursday night.
I even got married to a South African Muslim man last year, who promised he would look well after my kids and I, only for me to discover he is pretentious when it comes to my children. So I got a fasag from him.... During my Idat period I was living in a house filled with wonderful spirits, I got to learn so much about our Deen via the people walking through that front doors house.... I will always be greatfull to the lady and her family for allowing me to be a part of their family....
May the Peace and Blessings of Allah always be upon them and Inshaa Allah may they all be granted a high place in Paradise, Amin.
Ladies I want to tell you that please safeguard your Salaah, then there is dthikr which is a very important aspect of our deen, and do not live in a abusive relationship, get out - there is plenty of help out there and take care of yourself first, do not be dependent on a man to save you from poverty, if you get married to a man to ease your difficulty from your side, the marriage might not last very long especially if their is children involved.
There is so much more finer detail which I can tell you about, personally most people if they had to go through all these difficulties they would either commit suicide or fall into heavy depression. But Allah has blessed me through all my difficulties in meeting noble and pious Muslims, as I sit here today I am not rich on this Dunya right now by having Rands in my pocket or dress as smartly as most ladies, but spiritually I am one of the richest people Allah has created. I love my Creator I am constantly in conversation and praising Allah. I live my life for the Akhira, sometimes I wish Allah would allow me to die, because of the evil big or small which I come across on this Dunya, but honestly Allah is keeping me alive for some reason, I believe I know why, and these life experiences only makes me stronger.
No matter how difficult the barrier you are facing do not ever consider taking your own life Kanalla...
I am not in a position to give money to the poor, but my way of giving back is to smile @ all times. Yes lots off times its difficult, but then I think of the day I made my contract with Allah, and promised Allah that wherever I go it is for the sake of Allah. Never ever forget about our Creator.
