I know all of my duties.
I have also learnt how to pray the 5 daily prayers. I also want to start tomorrow.
Do I have to say anything in order to become Muslim?
You have to say two testimonies and that’s it.
You are welcome to global brother of Muslim Ummah.
When you conver to islam, all your past sins are forgiven inshallah. and you start a new life. If you become a muslim and follow islam as it says then you will find urself to be a better human being. You will be more kind, loving, helpful and patience. This is your reward in this life. You become a muslim and you are on the right path, the true path and you are believing in the truth. This life is a test! the real life is eternal. Muslims do get married!! And who said you cannot see the girl before you get married? Ofcourse you can! You cannot date a girl before you get married!! Being a muslim doesnt mean you go straight to paradise!! You will have to give an account of your deeds. And nobody dies for your sins! you pay for your own sins! However, muslims will in the end will go to paradise. And there are many rewards, too many to list in here anyway. Islam is the only way to paradise..Belive in Allah, and his Prophets.. Accept islam. May Allah show you the right path…Ameen..
I agree with everyone above, those are certainly the things required for a Muslim. But most of all, try to become a better person..that’s who a true Muslim is.
O you who have believed, believe in Allah and His Messenger and the Book that He sent down upon His Messenger and the Scripture which He sent down before. And whoever disbelieves in Allah, His angels, His books, His messengers, and the Last Day has certainly gone far astray.
Indeed, those who have said, “Our Lord is Allah ” and then remained on a right course – the angels will descend upon them, [saying], “Do not fear and do not grieve but receive good tidings of Paradise, which you were promised.
welcome to islam.
Don’t jump into the pitthinking that you can reach heaven.Allah and Koran was stolen by Muhammed from a chritian monastry in syria.Read below the facts.Save yourself.
Allah was not known as God of Abraham by the Meccan Arabs.Allah was the moon God worshiped by Meccan Arabs before Mohammad came on the scene.
Mohammad’s father, grand father and all his ancestors WORSHIPED the moon god ALLAH. Allah became the supreme god of all the 360 idol gods worshiped by the meccan arabs.Mohammad’s father was the keeper of the kaaba in which there were 360 idols.Mohammad’s father’s name was Abd – Allah, meaning servant of Allah the Moon God because he was the keeper of Kaaba. When Mohammad was born, his grand father offered mohammad to the Moon God Allah.
All Meccan Arabs faced and bowed & PROSTRATED TOWARDS KAABA and made pilgrims to the KAABA inside which were 360 idols. Today, All Muslims without any doubts are doing exactly the same thing facing, bowing & prostrating to Kaaba and thus Mohammad laid precident for muslims even to make pilgrim to the Kaaba and the truth of the fact we see moon on all mosques, flags, islamic art, books, etc.Thus Allah is NOT the God of Abraham, Moses, etc.
1000+ Mistakes Errors, Contradictions etc. in the Quran + facts about Muhammad
1000+ Comments on Jihad in Islam – “Holy War” (or mostly unholy war for riches, slaves, women, power, and for spreading Islam by force). Also the ideology and methods behind Jihad.
Correct copying of these texts in context – pieces, parts, the whole books are permitted IF YOU REFER TO THE TITLES OF THE BOOKS (“1000+ Mistakes in the Quran” and/or “1000+ Comments on Jihad in the Quran and Islam – Holy War or Unholy?”) and give the respective web addresses to the books.
Please forward the web address(es) – especially to places where many can see it/them, f. ex. pages for debate or interest groups. This page is rather new, and there are still many who does not know it, a number of whom might be interested in such information.
If this address is “saturated” by Muslims – there have been tendencies + hate mail – we simply change the address and advertise the new one on Internet. For these United States we are reasonably covered by https://www.topix.com/forum/religion/islam. Here in the Mid-West with all its former immigrants and languages, we also are reasonably covered for Scandinavia, and to a degree – but only a degree – covered in the northern parts of Europe. But if you have good addresses – as said f. ex. easily accessed addresses for debate or relevant special topics – we appreciate tips.
If you find real mistakes or or relevant real points we have overlooked, please inform us. (We may add that organized, educated Islam til now has not pointed to any mistakes in our quotes – and neither claimed this is hate mail.)
Muslims have to refute anything they do not like concerning Muhammad, the Quran. and Islam – because if anything at all is wrong, something is seriously wrong with the religion. An omniscient god does not make mistakes, errors, contradictions or use wrong logic, and thus each and every such case proves 100% that the Quran is not from a god (and concequently also that Muhammad did not represent a god), and that they cannot afford – true or not true mistakes, etc.
People that convert to Islam are so inspiring 🙂 I was born into it and even though i fell like a good muslim the idea of converting and seeing the truth is admirable.
anyway back to what you need to do.
You should perfrom ghusl which is like a holy cleansing; you need to shower all parts of your body and perform wudu in the shower to. This si like washing all he past sins out of you before you become a Muslim.
The if you can go to the mosque and go to the adhan and you have to testify, (there is no God but Allah and Muhammed (pbuh) is his messenger. If there is no mosque just testify at home.
May Allah Bless you 🙂
you have to say the Shahadah (Declaration of Faith):
Ashhadu ana la illaha illa Allah, wa anna muhammadun rasool Allah.
I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.”
Best of luck, may Allah guide you and make it easy for you (ameen)
You already know the duties, the only thing missing was the announcement which you just did, and now we are all your brothers and sisters in Islam.
you have to say the creed
Ashhadu ana la illaha illa Allah, wa anna muhammadun rasool Allah.
I testify that there is no god (ilah) but God (Allah), and I testify that Muhammad is the messenger of God.”
you will also have to do it in front a muslim congrigation to announce your Islam, so you will have to go to your local mosque they will also be able to help you insha’allah,
If you are in London I would love to be there to hear you
May Allah bless you and guide you to the right path
Like Adam said
but fist do the “Ghosl” washing your all body with clean clear water.
Yeah I think the best step is to go to your local mosque and ask the Imam. He will be very happy to tell you what to do, but in general you have to cite the Shahada with true intention =) welcome! Allah will guide you.
Remember, the most important thing is the belief in Allah… the one and only. The oneness of God cannot be stressed enough. That part of faith alone will bring many blessings.
… there are 6 faiths in Islam.
1) Belief in God
2) in his angels
3) in his messengers
4) in his revelations
5) in the day of judgment
