最初、両親は、わたしがイスラム教徒になったことを「若気の至り」と受け止めたようで、静観していました。しかし、私が真剣で主人との結婚も希望するようになると、両親も真摯に受け止めるようになりました。兄弟妹は、最初から私の入信に対して敬意を払ってくれました。後ほど、日本で両親の近くに住むようになると、私がヒジャブ(スカーフ)をしていることに対し、母はとくに困惑し嫌がりました。同居していた頃は、食事の違いや断食のことに、母が強いフラストレーションを感じたようです。今では、同居をやめて、近くに住むことでお互いの生活を尊重することで、全体的にとても良い関係を保つことができています。

* To those who are now thought to be a Muslim, please tell me if there is advice,ja

まずは、自分の気持ちと正直に向き合って、世間や社会がどう思うかより、自分が人間として生きるのに何が大事なのか、をじっくり考えてみてはいかがでしょう。結婚を機にイスラムへ導かれる方は、イスラム入信が単なる通過儀礼でなく、自分の人生を大きくかえるチャンスとなることを意識してほしいと思います。 また、日本人ムスリムという「マイノリティの中のマイノリティ」になることに不安を覚えたなら、思い出してください。アッラーは、1億3千万人のなかから、「あなた」を選びイスラムへの道を示してくださったのです。くじ運などゼロの私ですが、ムスリムになれたことを最高の「幸運」と感じています。どうか、あなたにもアッラーのお導きとご加護がありますように。

以上です。ご協力ありがとうございました。
