With all its new delights, conversion to Islam can sometimes bring with it its share of daunting challenges. Finally now, help is on its way.
Solace is a new voluntary organisation specifically set up to support revert sisters in difficulty. Under the patronage of Sheikh Haitham Al Haddad, Solace aims to provide pastoral and practical support through voluntary donations of time and community money.
Aims include a listening service offered by trained volunteers, counselling and life coaching, household help, parenting workshops, coffee mornings and day trips.
It already features a comprehensive website with links to You Tube videos, useful websites, helpline numbers to call and regularly updated events listings for London. For converts with doubts or questions about the faith, a helpline number has been made available.
Solace currently needs both publicity and support so please visit www.solaceuk.org to volunteer or donate.
