Welcome

Hello everyone and welcome to the community!

I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Amanda and I am the moderator for this community. writing2exist is my personal journal.

I am a recent convert to Islam. I have been a Muslim for less than a year. I was raised as a Southern Baptist. I never felt at home in Christianity and I am thrilled that my religious journey lead me to my home in Islam.

Jamaal,

WAAS.

You are the first member to join my little group! I am very excited. Welcome. Feel free to post anything anytime to get conversations started. Welcome to LJ.

Thank you! I am truly enjoying being in Islam.

I have never really known anyone from Austraalia. What's it like there? Is it hot all the time? How is your economy? Are there a lot of mosques?

Masha'Allah - it's great to hear you're enjoying your journey into Islam.
Revert to revert, I will tell you, there will be some bumps. I will be making Du'a that Allah (swt) makes them easy on you. :)

Australia definitely isn't hot all the time! In winter, which is coming now, the mornings especially are freezing. I work an outdoorsy job and start at 5AM too. So I definitely feel it. :P

Our economy, from what I know, has had a few near misses and we have narrowly avoided recession. But, from what I heard the other day, the internet and people's preference to buy online is killing our retail sector and really could spell the end for it as an employment opportunity (well, I'm sure not completely - this is just what I'm hearing from people...Who may or may not know.)

Alhamdulillah. In Melbourne and Sydney especially there are lots of Mosques, and a large Muslim community. The suburb I live in in Melbourne (I've read) is 51% Muslim and I live directly across the road from a Mosque with three more in easy driving distance. Even in rural areas too though you will find small Mosques.
