How to become a Muslim. (Revert to Islam)

1) (Certainty)

You must be absolutely sure you want to become a Muslim and fully submit to the will of God. You can’t become a Muslim just by pronouncing the words – The oral recitation is a reflection of belief that’s held in the heart.

2) (Say the Shahada, Declaration of faith)

Once you have said the Shahada (below) you are committed to following Islam for life.

The words of the Shahada are “Ashadu Anna La Ilaaha Illa Allah Wa Ash-hadoo Anna Muhammad Rasool Allah”  =  أشهد ان لا إله إلا الله واشهد أن محمد رسول الله

“This translates to “I testify that there is no other god but Allah, and Muhammad is God’s messenger (prophet).”

By saying the Shahada (“Ashadu Anna La Ilaaha Illa Allah Wa Ash-hadoo Anna Muhammad Rasool Allah ), you HAVE NOW become a Muslim. Congratulations!


Note: Now that you have become a Muslim it’s important you learn about Islam (Purity, Prayer, Fasting, Zakat/Khums, Hajj, Holy Koran and Sunnah (Ahlul Bayt)) If you would like support please do not hesitate to contact us on: info@al-rida.net or visit the Mosque/Centre to arrange a meeting with a qualified person to discuss in your preferred language (English, Arabic or Farsi)
