    Firstly, thank you for visiting this thread.

    I'm a Muslim; the last 3 or 4 years I've neglected Islam, and not bothered to look into it, learn the basic prayers etc.
    Recently I've been really upset and down for no apparent reason, and I know this may sound stupid or w/e to those atheists; but I felt that becoming more in touch with Islam would make me feel a little better, mentality wise.

    I'm stuck atm, I want to becoming more in touch with Islam but don't know where to start, or how to learn it properly and quickly.

    Thanks again, TSR.

      This is where you will get serious replies. IMO though, whilst religion is one way to seek "better mentality", it is not the only way. And it does not have the be a complete (using religion completely) way should you choose religion. You can find certain answers from religion, and find certain answers for yourself, but it is only you who must decide if these answers are correct. Try no to limit yourself in one way, as there are many other ways.

      Hi,

      Firstly, I hope you feel better soon :hugs: and Im glad that you're turning to Islam for help.
      Do you not have anyone in your family that you can talk to? Or any Muslim friends that may direct you to things/a place that may help you learn the basics?

      i think you should start by learning the basic prayers and read as many as you can throughout the day.
      Also try and read the Quran if you know how to, and if not, you deffo need to learn how to.
      Try and read up on Islam, to answer any questions you may have aswell.
      Good luck and Inshallah you'll be guided onto the right path

      It's interesting how you class yourself as a Muslim yet you neglect Islam and are out of touch with it/don't know the basics.

      Do you feel like you are a Muslim because your family are and you should be also? This is purely out of self-interest, you don't have to answer to it if it's personal to you.

      What about that belief?
      I guess you only believe that because you want that to be true too, by your own logic

      You do realise that your first comment totally negated any value in your second, right?

      It's clear thinking not a belief. Belief means to think something is true without knowing if it is or not. If someone wanted to 'know' the Truth they would not chain themselves to religion which is just another way of staying asleep. I am glad the OP is losing their religion as it means they are stop being deluded by it. Only fear will pull them back into it's warm fold for another spot of hibernation.

      I feel like I'm losing the religion I never fully knew about in the first place. And I don't think I will ever learn about my religion because religion isnt really dominant anymore in society

        The OP wanted to become happier through islam and that thread is the most appropriate place to ask this sort of question.

        My second comment was "In my opinion".

        Well, you should definitely start with prayer. It's the first thing that will be looked at on the Day of Judgement. If you don't know how to pray, go to a local mosque (or as local as you cvan get in England) and ask an Imam to teach you I guess. Otherwise, you could ask your parents if they're practising or a friend. Best of luck with it. I hope you start feeling better soon!
