Help build a Revert Marriage Service for stronger marriages and families

The Revert Marriage Service, or Solace in Marriage, is a five-stage support service based on the Quran and Sunnah that meets the needs of all revert sisters looking to enter in a marriage.

Upon taking their shahaadah, many revert sisters are immediately encouraged to marry. A large number of revert sisters do not have a Muslim father or Muslim family to act on their behalf throughout the Islamic marriage process.

This has led to:

  • Many revert sisters falling prey to predatory behaviour from some Muslim men
  • Revert sisters feeling lonely on their search for a husband
  • Appointment of a male guardian (wali) who has no time to vet the potential brother as would normally be conducted by a Muslim father
  • Confusion regarding the Islamic process of marriage
  • A high divorce rate amongst revert sisters
  • Revert sisters finding themselves years later in an unhappy and sometimes abusive marriage with nowhere and no one to turn to

By choosing this project, you can be part of the completion of this service so it can be available to many revert sisters and be part of the solution to the problems above. You not only help one revert sister, but all the revert sisters and their spouses that will be aided, as well their children and future generation — a sadaqa jariah from you and all your supporters. Help build stronger marriages and families for generations to come.

Provide Revert Support to Isolated Sisters in the North of England

Revert support needs to be more accessible in the local areas in the North of England, where the need is great.

In the past 10 years Solace has been operating, we’ve received thousands of requests for support from revert sisters in the North of England, and through this expansion, we can provide the much needed support they need.

This branch will be able to provide aid to local communities in Manchester, Newcastle, Leeds and Bradford, and also support sisters in the surrounding cities and counties in the northern part of England.

By supporting this project, you can contribute towards the completion of this branch so revert support can reach our sisters in the North of England. Donations go towards building the branch, which means as long as this branch operates and supports reverts, your donations will be an ongoing charity, helping waves and waves of sisters in difficulty.

Build a Branch for New Muslims in Guinea-Bissau, West Africa

More than 50% of the population of Guinea-Bissau are non Muslim, and yet village after village is taking the shahada. Solace has begun work to establish support for new Muslim reverts in Guinea Bissau, their children and community.

From maternity support to Islamic education for reverts and their children, new Muslim communities in Guinea-Bissau desperately need revert support.

With villages becoming Muslim, their needs are no longer needs that we can ignore further. Our newly converted sisters and their families are in need of support for their basic necessities. They are also in need of education to improve their lives and the lives of their loved ones. Villages are in need of basics such as food, solar panels to provide electricity in remote areas, and water pumps to provide consistent sources of clean water to use and drink.

By supporting this project, you enable us to build a branch of Solace that enables us to support them.

Help Build a Post-Shahaadah Institute for reverts worldwide

Organisations that provide education and support the learning of Islam are many. However, practical support and knowledge after the taking of the shahada is very little. Solace Institute is a post-shahada institute for revert sisters worldwide dedicated to providing practical education and practical support through well-planned courses, on topics such as navigating change, reconciling the Muslimah’s past and present identities, and many more, aiding them to move to more empowered states and become thriving Muslim women.

By supporting this project, you can contribute to the building of the Solace Institute and and gain the reward for all revert sisters who benefit from the service.
