You should handle the situation
very prudently. Islam does not require of you to immediately declare your
conversion to your parents. If circumstances are such that they might react
offensively and might even try to force you to change back, you can hold back
your declaration till the time you think is feasible. It is up to you to decide.
A gradual way can be adopted. In this
way, you yourself will become strong in your faith and gain inner strength. In
the meantime, you can prepare your parents’ minds by telling them that you are
seriously re-considering the basic questions of life viz: Who is our Creator?
Why did He create us? What will happen to us when we die? Do human beings have
the Book of God with them in its original shape? Why are there different
In this way, you can prepare them that
you have embarked upon the quest for the truth and that you are inclined to
adopt whatever seems the truth to you on the basis of arguments and reasoning.
Keep asking Allah to make the task
easier for you. Remember, prayers have great force and effect. Lastly, you must
not be rude or disrespectful to your parents even if they scold or coerce you.
