TIPS on how to keep our children safe from converting to Islam and to bring them back from Islam, I have lived in a muslim country for most of my life, Arabic is my first language, and I know the tactics muslim use to attract Christians, I have built these tips that I hope will be of benefit to you and others

1.I second P.O.D. we have to educate ourselves with Islam, there are so many resources, and I recommend unbiased resources that talks without extreme judgment on the religion. Islam btw has so many good stuff but all taken from Christianity, so Islam not only didn't bring anything new to humanity, it brought back human civilization backward

2.Conversation and interaction with our family members, what my husband and I do is spend at least 20 minutes a day together with the kids to discuss what happened to them during the day. This can be made fun if the parents know how to attract their kids, depending on their age. It can be a fun family night at home with no distraction like TV or Computer. Puzzle night, during dinner etc

3.Keep involved in their school, know who they are playing or gathering with, what we do is before permitting any of our children to visit their friends is that we meet the parents first at their houses

4.Hugs, Love and support should be continuous and never end even when they become independent men and women. the children is like us, they need someone to cry on their shoulders, they need to feel secure and loved. Most converts were looking for a group to belong to, I am glad though that the majority convert back from Islam when they found how biased they were

5.Fun times, family meals together: you will be surprised on how much stuff do you hear from them when you just have a meal together, it is important though that no distraction is allowed, TV computers etc

6.We are Catholic, and weekly mass to the whole family is not negotiable, it is a habit in our house. We always tell them that Jesus love to them way exceed our love, they know that at their dark times, they can pray and find someone to listen

7.Educate and support your children when they ask questions about any religion, your answers should not be extreme, they have to be true and unbiased. Example it is true that there is no cutting thief hands in Christianity, unlike Islam this is one of the laws in the Quran. These are facts. I have never isulted Islam when my kids ask me about it, I just present facts with no much emotions. However, I always remind them the power and beauty of unconditional love that Islam doesn't have and is not understood by Muslims.

Along with so many other references, I hope this website can help you with this mission

My advise, do not ever give up, I hope that she will come back sooner or later like many others

GOD bless you all
