|Message ||I stumbled across this site by accident after trying to get help from the Council For Mosques site (they ignored me and never offered any help or support) and am hoping that the legitimate muslims who visit here will be more welcoming and helpful, so here goes......
I am interested in converting to the Islamic faith, but after talking with a friend - she is muslim - I feel that there are some points that I need to get more information about to see how they fit with my own personal beliefs, and whether or not I could feel comfortable within a religious teaching that may not agree with my thoughts.
The main areas - initially - that I have for concern are about Islam's attitude towards homosexuality, and also the notion of God punishing people for their (supposed) wrong-doings both in this life and also when the day of reckoning comes, and also how Islam perceives non-believers who live otherwise model lives.
Also, if anyone could give me some guidence as to which other websites would be useful for me to read and also any centres/information points in West Yorkshire which I could maybe contact to talk about my thoughts and my aim to convert to Islam, that would be very helpful and much appreciated.
Cheers in advance
