Feeling Muslim

   Addressing the Unique Needs of American Converts to Islam

​​​​​​​​​​​​What is a Feeling Muslim Welcome Package?

A Feeling 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.
