I am convert (1997) and spent eight years in an Islamic country before returning home (United Kingdom) to take care of an elderly parent.
I know it is my duty as a muslim, but the situation has become increasingly hard regarding keeping to the straight path.
I feel very isolated here and where before there was the call to prayer echoing from mosques, here there are no reminders. People are not interested in discussing religion. I find myself moving towards my old lifestyle before I converted and would like to seek your advice on how to save myself.
I am also scared to announce my beliefs at work in case I suffer persecution from people and I seem to be living in fear. I know that I am in trouble, but am not sure what to do. I hope that you can offer some good advice.
