My name is Hanifa and also Nidia.
Hanifa is the name I chose when convert to Islam in 2004, and Nidia is the name that my parents give me.
I’m Portugueses and I’m Muslim.
Is there in this group of study other Portuguese people?
I have a great interesting in study Islam, in fact I want to go the “next level” if you understand. I mean with this, I want to be a specialist in Islam.
Also I want to right a lot of papers in my language, for that Portuguese people start to know a little better of this religion of peace, that is Islam.
So my propose is to learn more and more, to know people that know a lot of Islam and learn with them.
Another of my goals is to learn Arabic, then I can ready the Koran, without translation.
So I hope I learn a lot with you.

In the End I wud like to ADD that it's NOT necessory for a convert to Islam to CHANGE the prev. Name unless it's meaning etc. is against the Spirit of Islam. Now it's upto You which name you want to carry on.
