At-Taubah 34. O you who believe! Many among the rabbis and monks do indeed consume the wealth of people in legally invalid, wrongful ways (such as changing the Book’s commandments in return for worldly benefit, bribery, and using religion as a means of worldly gain) and bar them from God’s way. Those who hoard up gold and silver and do not spend it in God’s cause (to exalt His cause and help the poor and needy): give them (O Messenger) the glad tidings of a painful punishment.

At-Taubah 35. On that day, it (that hoarded wealth) will be heated in the fire of Hell and, therewith, their foreheads and their sides and their backs will be branded (and they will hear): “This is the treasure which you hoarded up for yourselves; taste now what you were busy hoarding!”

Reverts, one day you will have a Muslim family who you can pray fajr with and feed Iftar to. One day you will sit down and open Eid gifts with your beautiful Muslim children. One day you will all load into the car and sing nasheed on the way to the masjid for jummah. Don’t lose hope. You may feel lonely now but it won’t be for forever I promise.

“Islam gives me hope and strength. Pray calms my soul,” Blum told Bild.

CAIRO – Germany’s young footballer Danny Blum has announced his reversion to Islam, describing his new faith as a religion of hope and strength.
“Islam gives me hope and strength. Prayer calms my soul,” Blum told Bild newspaper on Monday, January 26.

“I was short-tempered, erratic and did not know where I belong,” he added.
Blum joined 1. FC Nürnberg in Bavaria last July. The team plays in the Second Division of professional football in Germany, the Bundesliga.

Shortly after joining the team, he injured his knee and was forced eventually to take six months off.

A few weeks ago, he took the decision to revert to Islam, joining the world’s fastest growing religion.

“Living in the lap of luxury. Every weekend make alarm. No responsibility for anything. And what actually comes after retirement?” the questions came to Blum as he sat at home.
Talking with his friends about religion, he landed in Islam.

"I have visited a mosque and I immediately risen the heart. I felt this is something for me and wanted to know more,” Blum told Bild.

Ever since, he prays five times a day and eat halal food. Informing his parents with his decision, the 24-year-old player said they were scared at first.
“They are devout Christians. But soon they said that I have to go that route if I believe that it is right,” he said.

“Islam is a peaceful religion. My faith says: never force anyone to do what he does not want. If you think, it has to come voluntarily from the heart!“
Germany is believed to be home to nearly 4 million Muslims, including 220,000 in Berlin alone. Turks make up an estimated two thirds of the Muslim minority.

Reverts, when you are having a weak iman day, when you come across racism in the ummah, when someone treats you like you are not knowledgable in religion because you are a convert, when your parents refuse to be seen in public with you in your hijab, remember that when you made the decision to become Muslim , you made the decision that your children will be Muslims, that entire generations of your family will be Muslims.Let that empower you, struggle for their sake. Your reward for your jihad will be you entering paradise with generations of your family that wouldn’t have known Islam if it weren’t for you. You brought your future generations to the truth , let that make you strong.

Anyone looking to revert to Islam

Accepting the base of Islam is the most important part. If you are debating not accepting because of something you do (i.e listening to music, drinking, smoking) stop. All these things are little when accepting to main concept of Islam. All of that stuff comes after, and it’s okay. Eventually with increase in knowledge of the deen these things will be easier to rid yourself of.
