It’s Christmas, I’m a New Muslim – what do I do?!

“Christmas and New Year are approaching and to be honest I feel a bit nostalgic. Is there anything wrong with that?” It may be your first Christmas as a Muslim and you don’t really know what to do about it?

You may feel confused, unsure or even nostalgic. Every time you think about it, it may bring back waves of positive memories…

In this video we’re exploring the topic of Christmas and New Year. Join Yusha Evans as he shares his experience of how he dealt with the Christmas dilemma.

Overcome is a monthly webinar series designed to empower you to overcome the everyday situations you may face as a New Muslim.

Join us every month as we explore these issues.

About Yusha Evans

Yusha Evans was born and raised in Greenville, South Carolina in a very conservative Christian home. In his early teens he became heavily involved in the church near his home and a youth oriented organisation with the intention of becoming involved in the ministry of teaching and preaching. In the summer of 1996 his life changed, upon studying the bible from cover to cover and realizing many things were askew, and a lot of what he believed his entire life was not in line with what his research found, he left Christianity and went in search of the truth.

After many twist and turns, he encountered a Muslim, and was given a Qur’an. After reading the Qur’an cover to cover he accepted Islam in the winter of 1998. Yusha (Joshua) Evans currently works as a full-time lecturer and caller to Islam, as well as teaching workshops that have taken him all across the globe. He has studied under numerous teachers and scholars in the various sciences of Islam and is a Psychology major.

My Dear Child

His hands started trembling as he read further and further down the page. Tears began to flow as he recalled every petty fight, every silly argument. As the lamppost above him flickered on with its hazy orange glow, he wished he was home.

Andrew accepted Islam 9 months ago. Ever since his parents found out about his decision things went from bad to worse. Last week they kicked him out of the family home. His mother, really worried about him, has passed on this letter to him via a friend.

Imagine that you are Andrew, reading this letter from your mother.
