Truly there is no God but Allah and Allah is the creator and sustainer of all that existed, exists and can exist.
Asalamu Alaikum, I am a recent convert 2 months in April and I have one very big question.
Before I reverted to Islam I had a girlfriend. We dated for 14 months before I broke up with her on terms of Islam. That should be the end of my question, right?
It's not. The reason for that is because my mother loves her. My mother is not a run-of-the-mill mother of a convert she actually has extensive Islamic knowledge and I'd say she's 5-salat-a-day, away from being a sheik etc.
Not only that I love this girl and she loves me back. I thought it was infatuation but it isn't. I made Isktikara and broke up with her and while I've brought her to my mosque a few times she's still on the fence about reverting. I gave her space and told her to make own decision and she still wants to be with me and will accept the time away from me.
Is it permissible to speak to this female seeing as we had a relationship in hopes she'll convert as we were speaking before Islam and if not why not? Will it be enough to drop her even if it's at the expense of my mother's happiness?
