Approval Received!

I spoke with our Facility Chaplain Director today. She told me that she received approval to proceed with my contract to be our Muslim chaplain.

Now it should just be a matter of formalizing the contract, Insha Allah!

I am so excited. It is beyond my wildest dreams to receive this opportunity from Allah (swt).

Keep saying dua for me!

Just a friendly greeting from another Jewish Muslim. Hey, we should start a Jews for Muhammad just like the Jews for Jesus! j/k

As Salaamu Alaikum Brother!

Jazaka allahu Khayr for the friendly greeting! I have found very few Jewish reverts to Islam. I am sure there are some out there, but I haven't found but one or two. I'm glad I found you!

Assalaamu alaikum! First of all, congratulations on being a muslim chaplain. That's quite an accomplishment....masha Allah!

And funny enough...before I converted to islam, I tried to convert to judaism first....LOL! (they didn't want me)

Salaam and Shalom Dear Sister:
Alhamdulillah! What a great opportunity for you :) You are in my prayers, and I know you will make a wonderful Chaplain :)

I am the son of Holocaust survivors who became a darvish of the Nimatullahi Sufi Order, and I know many Jews who did also, at least in our Order :)

I am adding you to the Darvish blogroll.

Ya Haqq!

Salaams Sister Safiyyah

Ma sha Allah. This is good news indeed. I am a recently trained Muslim chaplain (and I will soon start in a local UK university).

I've been collecting useful chaplaincy links over at my website. Stop by and check them out.

Salaams Abdur Rahman:

I will check it out, Insha Allah. Thanks so much for the information.

I recently wrote an article for Al-Jummuah Magazine about Muslim chaplaincy. It hasn't been published yet :(

Muslims need to know what Muslim chaplains do, and how we are different imams.

correction: how we are DIFFERENT from imams
