1. Practice Islam as much as you can
“He who loves my Sunnah has loved me, and he who loves me will be with me in Paradise.”
-The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (Tirmidhi)
As a new Muslim, you will have trouble keeping up with prayers every day, fasting during Ramadan, and the many other practices in this religion. The struggle that we face, with such a radical change in lifestyle, is difficult and will take some time. Awkward moments are bound to happen, don’t fret. You are not expected to wake up at 4am every morning to pray tahajjud (extra night prayers). If you have problems with certain practices, then gradually work yourself into the mindset of worship. A counselor once told me when I was young, “How do you eat an elephant? Just One bite at a time.” Think of it as one step at a time. Pray to Allah (swt) and ask for Him to make it easy for you and the rest will come naturally.

Michael Jackson on November 2008 had converted to Islam. His brother, Jermaine Jackson and also his friends, David Whamsby and Phillip Bubal have witnessed about Michael’s conversion.
But why they don’t respect Michael Jackson’s choice by giving him an Islamic Funeral?
According to Islam, others Muslims should come and pray for Michael Jackson closely.
