When I became Muslim, almost 2 years ago, I knew instinctively that Islam was a large tent under which many and all were welcome. I knew that Islam was tolerant and giving, but, unfortunately, there were few Muslims in my area that lived up to that. It was when I found Muslims for Progressive Values that I found a group of Muslims who practiced Islam in all of its loving, all-embracing, welcoming glory. They, the good people of MPV, were there to answer my questions and give me guidance. Not only were they not judgmental, almost always when I posted a questions -- or saw a question posted that I had been unsure of whether it would be appropriate to ask, the brothers and sisters of MPV gave information from their heart and from their heads -- and they made it absolutely clear that not only the question asked was appropriate, but they, the responders had at one point wondered the same thing. It makes you feel good when you find that you aren't the only one who was wondering about A, B or C -- whatever the question was/is. To find yourself surrounded by people of a like mind who are open and willing to share their doubts, their faith and their approach to their faith without judging you for yours is a blessing of such immense proportions that there is know way I can express it.
