The spouse should try to find ways to work around the holidays, allowing their revert spouse to visit family ‘around’ the time of the holiday.
How can we be productive after converting to Islam and keep a balance in life? No one expects you to become a scholar in one month. Approaching Islam step by step is actually the best way…
Islam is a way of life, and it helps us understand our purpose in life, and draw us closer to our Creator.

Some new reverts just get fed up because they cannot bear the criticism from their close friends or their family anymore. Consequently, they feel embarrassed to meet other Muslims or go to the mosque to avoid more problems.
When we enter Islam, we humble ourselves before God. The abuse from society only strengthens our trust in Him. Being mocked at or denigrated only makes us appreciate all the more, the trials that our beloved Prophet Muhammad faced.
The Muslim community can be a means of support for a convert or revert who has become isolated from family members, a means of education and instruction in practicing Islam, and a means of constant companionship.
