Salaam So I have a past of getting drunk at parties, wearing loads of revealing clothing, smoking, flirting, steaming things up with the opposite sex. I lived life to the full, lawlessly and my way. One day I was just curious and decided to research on Islam; which opened my eyes. I am still studying; but when I convert, I will wear the Hijab, which will bring me loads of problems. These "friends" that I had are fake, racist and rude. When they see me in the street with a Hijab on, they will bully me. The boys will call me terrible names. The girls will throw things at me. What should I do? I need to prepare because they're everywhere. They are unavoidable. Should I ignore them and be proud? Should I put my head down and hide? I really don't know. Please help me. Peace Jazak Allah

May Allah's Peace and Mercy be Upon You.

Dear Sister, You might be thinking you are living a bad life. Please avoid that thought. Our beloved Prophet Mohamed had a lot of bad days too. One example is there was a woman who always threw garbage at our Prophet everyday, and then at last, she knew she was wrong.

My suggestion to you is avoid id. Your friends that you call fake will definitely (Inshaallah) understand how they were truly wrong.

Also keep asking Allah for security, as Allah mentions in the Qur'an himself as "The Best Protector--The All Seeing."

Good luck.

P.S. Avoid thinking that I want bad things to you.
