What is a New Muslim Welcome Package?
A New Muslim Welcome Package is a free gift that is put together with love and care especially for new Muslims. The purpose of the package is to provide those who have embraced Islam with a few items to help them on this lifelong journey of faith. These items were chosen by our team after a great deal of research and reflection upon our own experiences as converts to Islam. We asked ourselves important questions about the things we wish we had known or things we would have found beneficial when we first embraced Islam. The other thing we looked at in great detail is the findings of Karla Kovacik's study, Feeling Muslim: An Intimate Portrait of Identity Cultivation among American Female Converts to Islam. One of the questions Karla asked was, "What do you think Muslim communities around the United States could do to help new converts to Islam feel Muslim?" The converts spoke - and we listened to what they had to say.

Who is eligible to receive the New Muslim Welcome Package?
Anyone who is a U.S.-born convert to Islam who has converted in the past 2 years, and is currently residing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin (other areas are out of our reach at the moment due to shipping costs but we are working on it). Due to limited donations, we are only able to get the packages to folks we can hand-deliver them to. Our goal is to get a NewMuslim Welcome Package to as many American converts to Islam as possible. This is a community-building initiative that is meant to strengthen Muslim communities....unite where there is division....and do it all for the pleasure of Allah with the utmost Love, Mercy, Care, and Respect.
How is Feeling Muslim able to do this?:
Through the generous donations of folks all over the world who want to do whatever they can to support American converts to Islam through every stage of their journey. Monetary donations are always welcome and so are your services! Would you like to provide a new Muslim with a Welcome Package? Please help us in this endeavor by donating today.
