I find that most of the reverts I know (most not all) want to follow a more traditional form of Islam. They don't have the cultural baggage that brings them one way or the other. Sometimes this causes problems with born Muslims because they see these reverts as being too strict. I can see their point of view, but perhaps if they look at it from another way, it will make more sense. A revert is someone who has been guided by Allah to accept Islam. They were not born that way. They have researched Islam and found it to be true. Its a huge step for some. So it only makes sense that they don't hold back when it comes to following the letter of the religion. A born Muslim may have been influenced by family or community their entire life, and perhaps even take it for granted.
I'm not saying that a born Muslim is not good, in fact I envy them a bit because they have had Islam all of their lives. I've learned quite a bit from my born Muslim brothers and sisters.
My classes at the masjid are a mix of born Muslims and reverts. Its always nice to listen to the questions that come from both angles. Questions from reverts can remind the born Muslims of the individual struggles that one goes through when converting religion. Questions from the born Muslims can be more in depth and can also show how things are seen from the point of view of someone who has been immersed in the religion for a longer period of time.
As a revert, I feel that now that Allah has shown me the straight path, that it is my obligation to follow it the best I can. Some may not agree with me on the choices and decisions I make, but I try to take my direction from people I trust, and from Quran and Sunnah.
