If the person has learned the basics of salah and is praying. I think the next thing to teach them is how to read the Quran...

...doing so is a VERY rewarding experience

Re: She Accepted Islam, Alhamdulillah.. Now What?

Tabarakallah- totally agreed upon the above.

Without a doubt, the first and foremost thing to tackle once a person takes the Shahada, is the matters pertaining to Aqeedah. If a person's Aqeedah is straight and firm then all other actions will follow and fall in place bi ithnillah taa a3la. However due to issues in Aqeedah, you find people engulfed in fisq and ma3usia...

The brother MashaAllah has given links above to resources from which you can pass on to the sister. I also recommend getting sisters to be around her more often so as to get into the understanding of hayaa and the true essence of not only being a believer, but a woman slave of Allaah (swt). As of course the roles of women and men diff greatly, and it can only be fulfilled by understanding the roles and being amidst those who will help in bringing about the best in you.

So tackle Aqeedah inshaAllah, and also companions and environment she is around (as too often have I seen people come into Islaam and total passion and zeal for the deen is present at first but then slowly due to companions and perhaps not being sincere enough, the person is soon found back to old ways of kufr- wa ya3oothubillah).

May Allaah (swt) keep her upon the straight path and let her die upon it...Allahumma Aameen

Alhamdulillah, glad tidings for the sister and us:

Volume 1, Book 2, Number 40:
Narrated Abu Huraira:


Allah's Apostle said, "If any one of you improve (follows strictly) his Islamic religion then his good deeds will be rewarded ten times to seven hundred times for each good deed and a bad deed will be recorded as it is."
