I was recently alerted to this Kristiane Backer interview in which she gives her opinion as to the reason why some converts to Islam find it tough and eventually leave Islam:
Rohail (interviewer): One perception is that most of the converted Christians do revert back? Have you ever faced such a situation?
Kristiane Backer: The reason is that converts often feel isolated from their old circle of friends and are not really included in mainstream Muslim communities. This isolation is too hard for some to take. How are Muslims failing converts and what can be done about this questions every Muslims should be asking themselves.
If you are a convert to Islam and are finding yourself isolated or experiencing other issues please feel free to email me:
