Brothers and Sisters,

We at GainPeace, which is an outreach department of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) organization, care deeply about the experience of converts. We are conducting this survey to understand your needs and circumstances better, resulting in enhancing support for our new Muslim brothers and sisters, God-Willing. Based on the results of this survey, GainPeace will educate Islamic Centers of the various needs and challenges of Converts. This research will result in improved accommodation at Islamic Centers and by the larger Muslim Community for our New Muslim Convert brothers and sisters.
 
The term "Convert", convert is universal but also means revert. For the purpose of this research, the term convert will be used. Often times convert and revert is used interchangeably by Muslims but has the same meaning. It refers to those who embraced Islam as a faith.For the purpose of this research, we will stick to Islamic Centers, Mosque, or Masjid.
 

This survey has 20 questions and will take around 10 minutes to complete. We do appreciate you completing this survey. The information provided is not identifiable. The analysis of data collected will be presented on our website once this research is completed. We look forward to hearing from you!
