    I live in the UK and I want to join Islam because of how welcoming it is.

    Can muslims on here give me advice?

    Will I have to learn Arabic?

    How many times will I have to read the Qu'ran?

    You don't need to learn Arabic it you can learn how to read it so you are able to read the Qur'an, and there's no set time on how many times you should read the Qur'an as much as you can would be the best answer tbh, although you have to pray 5 times a day and learn some short verses of the Qur'an in order to so do.

    That is really great, mashallah. In terms of advice, I am not a revert, so maybe seek advice from reverts.Other than that I'd say have an access to someone knowledgeable and trustworthy who will answer any questions you have. Like an scholar, an Imam at a mosque.Learning Arabic is great, but it's a process- I am still currently learning Arabic. I know how to read Arabic, and you might have to do that, in order to pray in Arabic.I also read an English translation, alongside it.I feel the Qu'ran is less a book you finish and are over with, but a constant guide.So always, as much as you can. It purifies your heart brings you closer to Allah.In terms of learning to read it, inshallah it will be easy for you. Just know that your struggle to learn even how to pronounce a letter a word, can have a greater reward than those who are able to do but do not.My advice, probably is hugely helpful, but if you have anymore questions feel free to ask!

    Will you have to read the qu'ran yes but it will not take to long to learn Arabic is not necessary to become a Muslim
