I discovered Islam a few months ago and I studied it (reading Quran, listening to lectures, learning to read arabic, trying to build a small vocabulary and so on). Now I would like to take it to next level. These days I also learned about making salah (still working on memorizing).
My problem now is that I am not sure what to expect and how to approach the next step. As I already told you I am not a speaker of arabic yet and from what I seen on their facebook page the lectures are given in arabic (I am from Romania if you wonder). Will I look funny standing there and understanding basically nothing? Are new comers welcome generally speaking? I know from other people that in judaism they are not totally friendly to new comers, I wonder if I will experience something like that in Islam as well.
Something else. Is Shahada supposed to be told in front of other two muslims to be true (I found this in various places)? When will I be able to say that I am a muslim?
Any other suggestion helps. Thanks
