Assalamu Alaykum,

This might be a stupid question, but here it is anyway:

Is it permissible for someone born in Tel-Aviv Israel to convert to Islam? Won’t he face some discrimination? Won’t he be looked upon as suspect, untrustworthy, suspicious?

There are people of nearly all religions who live in Israel who were born there. Tel Aviv is the most secular city in all of Israel. So is it permissible for a person to revert to Islam? Yes. Will they be looked upon as suspect, untrustworthy, suspicious? Ask that question of nearly the entire planet that doesn't deal with conversion as a punishable crime and you'll get a response that is nearly all on the same.

Wa alaikum assalam.

Yes, it is permissible.

No, and in fact he/she may be greatly supported. Out of the few Israeli Jews whom convert to Islam, the ones I know of are made famous and given a lot of respect by the community. That brother or sister had to turn their back on their entire religious upbringing, history, perhaps even family ties to revert to Islam...that's a lot more than us whom were born in to Muslim families and they deserve a great deal of respect for that.
