Revert to Islam course
The experience and the study have shown that the process of reversion to Islam is a life-changing one, with profound challenges and thus needs to be handled with sensitivity and care. The most successful factor in helping new reverts to Islam is practical training, coaching and mentoring by experienced Islamic workers and volunteers. This entails an entire process of helping potential reverts with information and counselling they need and answering their critical questions about Islam. There is a social integration initiative for those who revert called ‘The Path Finder Forum.’ This action helps the Reverts to know anything they need to know about Islam and its rites.
