Salam, hermanos. Anonymous 11/02/2020 (Mon) 01:17:12 ID: 55a854 No.152
I am a Mexican who have a direct Muslim ancestry and I want some advice. For you see, my parents emigrated here from Iraq and settled in the south. My whole life was very traditional but there is a predicament. For some odd reasons, my parents choce to raise me and my sister as local Roman Catholics. This was unbeknownst to me for my whole life up until my adulthood. They said they wanted us to have a normal life, yet I always felt like I didn't belong. Truth is, my faith is with God but I want to know more about Allah. I've been studying Iraqui Arabic but I'm not sure if I should. My parents, specially my father, says he won't stop me yet he says he expects me to "do the right thing". What can I do? Please, I need some help from native brothers.
>>152 What you should do to learn about Allah (who is God btw) is learn Classical Arabic/Modern Standard Arabic, the language of the Qur'an. Knowing an Arabic dialect won't get you very far. That being said, there are heaps of Information on Islam in English and Spanish already available, praise be to Allah. So you don't really need to learn Arabic to learn the basics of Islam.
>>152 Wa alaykom asalam brother Jesus(pbuh) never referred to God with "God" because that's an english word. Jesus spoke aramaic, a semitic middle eastern language like arabic. https://www.atour.com/cgi-bin/dictionary.cgi?string=god&Search_Field=Meaning >What can I do? Research and contemplate wither Islam is the truth. Get a copy of the Qur'an in the language you prefer, read it and contemplate wither it what it claims to be. Ask Allah for help, Allah will help you if you are truly trying to find the truth. I don't know if this would help but take a look at this video https://youtu.be/7CR0YGU9XJk
>>152 If there is a masjid nearby where you live I would strongly recommend visiting it and asking any questions you may have. May Allah strengthen you and keep you firmly on the right path.
>>169 Amen.
