At the age of 17, Jamie's father kicked her out of the house at which time she lived under a freeway overpass for a week. She became involved in vices and modeled for playboy until she decided to turn her life around. She discovered Islam and gave all of that up. Now, she lives in much peace and happiness. Allah (God) is all merciful and forgiving and can do whatever He shall wish to do. Nothing is impossible for Him to do. If He shall wish to forgive you for even this, He will. One of the most difficult obstacles new young converts/reverts face today is the public stereotype and the acceptance from their parents of their new chosen faith. But remember this, Allah gives you no task or obstacle that you cannot overcome and He will be with you so long as you remember Him and ask for His help. Eventually, after they really learn the truth about your new faith, Islam, they will come around Inshallah (God Willing). Nothing is impossible for Him to do. So keep looking forward, praying, and remember that you are not alone. Muslims around the World love you and accept you as they do any brother and sister, and that thousands and thousands of those who convert/revert every year, often face the same challenges, but at the end, Allah brings peace and happiness. It is a small test of the strength of your faith. Stay strong, keep looking forward, and keep praying to Him. Whoever Allah guides, none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide.
