KnewU – The New Muslim Experience
KnewU – The New Muslim Experience
Since the first American Muslim converts began taking shahadah (converting to Islam) over two centuries ago in the United States, new Muslims (converts to Islam), historically have experienced difficulty in transitioning into Islam. The majority never fully learning the foundational principles of how to practice or maintain their faith. Until the launch of KnewU in 2011, New Muslims had no organization to turn to that could fully understand their experience as converts in America.
KnewU was founded by American convert, Abdullah Oduro, to assist New Muslims in successfully transitioning into Islam. KnewU provides educational programs and resources that make the learning of Islam’s core principles easy and fun. KnewU’s mission:
“To serve as a resource that builds the intellectual, spiritual and social needs of new and renewed muslims worldwide.”
To fulfill this mission on a global scale, KnewU will need to develop its organizational structure, business model and brand, to a level that has never been achieved by any Islamic organization in the world. The reason for this is simple, currently there is not one internationally known Islamic organization that is lead by and created entirely for New Muslims. KnewU will be the first, by embarking on its mission, not only solve one of the Islamic world’s greatest problems, but it will CHANGE the future and history of ISLAM forever.

100,000 Americans embrace Islam every year.
In the United States, a New Muslim is born every 5 mins. More than 60% of these converts are abandoning the protestant church and family traditions to walk the path of Islam. These Muslims enter Islam naked, without any support system or qualified mentorship. Due to this lack of support, majority of New Muslims in the West are forced to learn Islam through an endless sea of website links and videos online. Not knowing whether if what their learning is actually a credible and actual principle in Islam or not. Currently conversion into Islam in the United States and Europe is growing rapidly among Blacks, Latinos and Whites. There is no national or global organization meeting all the basic needs of these New Muslims. KnewU needs to seize this opportunity, and begin taking steps to position itself as the worlds first global New Muslim organization, built entirely for transitioning New Muslims into Islam.
KnewU fully understands the plight, challenges and experiences of New Muslims because it is primarily managed and operated by converts.
What sets KnewU apart from other Islamic organizations serving New Muslims is it’s content. KnewU has developed content that is written from a New Muslim perspective. Short introduction manuals like “Iman Plan: Every Key Has Ridges”delivery simplified core Islamic principles free from cultural biases and interpretation. KnewU organizes and conducts engaging workshops and lectures for New Muslims, as well.
Through our website, www.knewu.org, we offer all these services and provided assistance to new Muslims all over the world.
