Three of the four new convert Apparently English Women ... This Reason They Choose Islam

Three of the four new convert Apparently English Women ... This Reason They Choose Islam
Three quarters of British converts are women. Richard Peppiatt from The Independent has found that from 5200 UK citizens who converted to Islam in 2010, more than 50 percent are whites and three-quarters of them are women.
In addition, researchers based at Swansea University also found that of 40 thousand people in Britain to Islam in the last 10 years, and the majority are women.
These findings are almost similar to Faith Matters, who calls 53 percent of white British converts are women. The figure rose 66 percent in the period 2002-2010 compared with the same period before 2001.
Generally, these new Muslims collided with everyday problems, to integrate their new beliefs within the limits of the wider community, where they are often regarded as an outsider, even though Western background. A recent study in Leicester found the surprising fact that 93 percent of mosques require a service to convert, but only 7 percent of those who can fulfill this need.
Kevin Brice, who conducted extensive research in the development of sociological converts, speaks to The Outlook on a number of reasons why women convert to Islam. "Islam offers women a sense of protection and identity - this may sound counter-intuitive given the way Islam is usually portrayed in the media - but some women find modest clothing is required by Islam to be 'liberating'," he said.
Islam, he says, is also viewed as more supportive of family values ​​'ancient', and women have a clear role in the family. Many converts to Islam from the beginning to find their anxiety with alcohol and drunkenness, lack of morality and sexual freedom, and consumerism, all of which is seen as prevalent in British society. "Islam offers them a different approach," he added.
Brice also talked about a number of misconceptions associated with the converts. "First, it is important to recognize that the majority of converts have been converted through free choice and they still see themselves as British and Muslim. Convert does not represent the sly accusation that they are determined to disrupt the Western way of life," he said. (Telegraph)
