Convert Care for New Muslims

Today we talk to Shaykh Bilal Brown, Managing Director of New Beginnings.

Shaykh Bilal Brown is also a convert.

New Beginnings is all about convert care and helping people in their first years of Islam.

From the website:

New Beginnings aims to create welcoming, non-judgemental environments and spaces, online and in-person, that nurture a sound and authentic experience of Islam for those that are either converts to Islam, or interested in converting.


Topics covered in this episode:

  • How 'Convert Care' is a neglected duty and what we're doing about it
  • Offering a holistic package for new converts
  • The complex needs of new Muslims
  • Facilitating a smooth transition of the convert into the wider Muslim community
  • Preserving one's individual and cultural identity after converting
  • Social events for converts
  • Learning/classes for converts
  • Buddying programs
  • Offering support and well-being services

From the website:

Every day in the UK, at least one person converts to Islam.
The conversion is usually met with elation from the Muslim community
but there is often little done to take care of the complex needs that they may have, or at times,
a lack of understanding of what those needs are.

Also:

That's where we come in.
With a diverse team, made up mostly of converts from diverse backgrounds,
we have the knowledge and experience to offer a holistic package
in order to ensure the smooth transition of the convert into the wider Muslim community.

And:

Convert care in the UK is an area that has been much neglected for decades.
The number of converts to Islam in the UK is growing exponentially, with two-thirds of them being women.
We aim to fill the gap via a combination of innovative methods with a strong basis in the Islamic tradition and the way of the Prophet Muhammad.
People who convert to Islam generally have a whole myriad of needs.
We aim to fulfil and serve the needs of those new and old to Islam in a holistic manner.
