HOW TO BECOME A MUSLIM
All praise be to Allah,
the Lord of the universe. May peace and blessings
of Allah be upon Mohammad, His last messenger.
The purpose of this hand-out
is to correct a false idea spread among those
willing to adopt Islam as their faith. Some people
have a wrong notion that entering into the Islamic
fold requires an announcement from the concerned
person in the presence of high ranking scholars
or shaikhs or reporting this act to courts of
justice or other authorities. It is also thought
that the act of accepting Islam, should, as a
condition, have a certificate issued by the authorities,
as evidence to that effect.
We wish to clarify that the whole matter is very
easy and that none of these conditions or obligations
are required. For Allah, Almighty, is above all
comprehension and knows well the secrets of all
If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and
has full conviction and strong belief that Islam
is the true religion ordained by Allah for all
human-beings, then, one should pronounce the "Shahada",
the testimony of faith, without further delay.
The Holy Qur'an is explicit on this regard as
"The Religion in the sight of Allah is Islam."
In another verse of the Holy Qur'an, Allah states:
"If anyone desires a religion other than
Islam (Submission to Allah), Never will it be
accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will
be in the ranks of those who have lost (their
selves in the hell fire)."(Qur'an 3:85)
In addition, Islam is the only religion prevailing
over all other religions.
Allah states in the Holy Qur'an:
"To thee We sent the Scripture in truth,
confirming the scripture that came before it,
and guarding it in safety:..." (Qur'an 5:48)
Mohammad, the Prophet of Allah (Peace and blessing
of Allah be upon him), said:
"The superstructure of Islam is raised on
five (pillars): testifying that there is no God
(none truly to be worshiped) but Allah, and that
Mohammad is the messenger of Allah, performing
the prayer, paying the Zakah (poor-due), fasting
the month of Ramadan, and performing Hadj".
ITG Note: Islam is raised
on five pillars, but not only five since the Islamic
system that Muhammad(saaw) worked so hard to implement
consists of pillars (systems) that are not part
of the five mentioned - Islam as a system to live
by cannot function without the economic, social,
judicial and political systems contained in Islam.
For more information refer to the ITG website.
The Shahada can be declared as follows:
"ASH-HADU ANLA ELAHA ILLA-ALLAH WA ASH-HADU
ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASUL-ALLAH".
The English translation is:
"I bear witness that there is no deity (none
truely to be worshipped) but, Allah, and I bear
witness that Mohammad is the messenger of Allah",
However, it would not be sufficient for anyone
to only utter this testimony oraly either in private
or in public; but rather, he should believe in
it by heart with a firm conviction and unshakeable
faith. If one is truly sincere
and complies with the teachings of Islam in all
his life, he will find himself a new born person.
This will move him to strive more and more to
improve his character and draw nearer to perfection.
The light of the living faith will fill his heart
until he becomes the embodiment of that faith.
What would be next after declaring oneself a
Muslim? One should then know the real concept
underlying this testimony which means the Oneness
of Allah and meet its requirements. One must behave
accordingly, applying this true faith to every
thing one speaks or does.
What do the words of the "Shahada"
signify? The significant point which every Muslim
must know very well is the truth that there is
no God (deity) to be worshipped other than Allah.
He - glory be to Him - is the only true God, Who
alone deserves to be worshipped, since He is the
Giver of life and Sustainer and Nourisher of mankind
and all creation with His unlimited bounties.
Man must worship Allah, Who alone is worthy of
ITG Note: Worshipping Allah(swt)
is achieved by following His(swt) commands, these
are found in the Qur'an, Sunnah(saaw) of the Prophet
and applied Usul-Ul-Fiqh which is based upon the
Qur'an and the Sunnah(saaw). You can take a self-study
course at the following website page on the
usul ul fiqh study booklet.
We recommend that you do
so since you will be armed with the knowledge
of what is Allowed, disallowed, permitted and
forbidden according to Islamic viewpoint.
The second part of the Shahada (i.e., Wa ash-hadu
anna Mohammadan rasul-Allah) means that Prophet
Mohammad (PBUH) is the servant and chosen messenger
of Allah. No one must have two opinions about
this matter. In fact the Muslim has to obey the
commands of the Prophet (PBUH), to believe him
in what he has said, to practice his teachings,
to avoid what he has forbidden, and to worship
Allah alone according to the message revealed
to him, for all the teachings of the Prophet were
in fact revelations and inspirations conveyed
to him by Allah.
What is the meaning of worship? It simply means
rendering sincere service, showing reverence for
Allah. In a deeper shade of meaning, it implies
total submission and complete obedience to Allah's
commandments both in utterances and actions of
man whether explicit or implicit.
Worship fall into two categories:
Visible (manifest or outward)
Invisible (concealed or inward)
Visible worship includes acts such as uttering
the two parts of the
"Shahada", performing prayers, giving
Zakah (the poor-due), recitation of the Holy
Qur'an, supplication, adoring Allah by praising
Him, purifying our bodies before prayers,
etc. This type of worship is associated with
movement of the parts of the human body.
Invisible worship is to believe in Allah, in
the Day of Judgement (in the Hereafter), in the
Angels, in the Books of Allah, in the Prophets
of Allah, in the Divine Decree of destiny (that
good and bad are determined by Allah alone).
This type of worship does not involve movement
of parts of the body but it surely has bearing
on one's heart which subsequently affects one's
way of life.
It should be borne in mind that any worship not
dedicated to Allah alone will be rejected as one
form of polytheism and this causes apostasy from
the Islamic fold.
ITG Note: Allah(swt) in
his mercy will account you for your actions that
you carryout with your body and by your tong only!
What you think in your mind is not accountable
and so you can freely think!
The next step for a newly revert to Islam is
to purify himself by taking a complete bath. He
should then resolve to comply with the principles
and rules of Islam in their entirety. He should
disown all forms of polytheism
and false beliefs. He should reject evil and be
righteous. Such rejection of evil and being righteous
is one of the equisites of the motto of Islam
- that is, Laa Ilaha Illallah.
Allah states in the Holy Qur'an:
"... whoever rejects evil and believes in
Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy Hand-hold,
that never breaks..." (Qur'an 2:256).
We have to consider that when we declare from
our heart that "there is no god (deity) worthy
to be worshipped but Allah", it implies on
our part love,
devotion, faith and obedience to the rules of
Islamic legislations which are legally binding
on all Muslims. It is a requirement of "there
is no god worthy to be worshipped but Allah"
to love for the sake of Allah and to
reject for the sake of Allah.
This is the firmest anchor of belief which materialise
the meaning of "AL WALA" and "AL
BARA". It means that a Muslim should love
and be loyal to his Muslim brothers. He should,
as a practice, dissociate himself completely from
the unbelievers and refuse to be influenced by
them, both in worldly and religious matters.
We conclude with a humble prayer to Allah that
may He cleanse the hearts and souls of those who
are genuine seekers of truth and may He bless
the community of believers. Aameen.
ITG Note: You need to now
visit the nearest Islamic center where you live,
and should now work towards becoming a viceroy
of Allah(swt) in this temporary life. This title
grants you authority greater than any kaffir including
the president of the USA - even the president
is below your level of authority [No kafir has
any authority in the sight of Allah(swt) the almighty].
Visit the ITG website for further guidance and
keep in touch. You will gain knowledge the more
you understand the Qur'an translated in a language
you can understand. Learn about Muhammad(saaw)
and our rich Islamic history:
and strive to bring your
friends and family into the fold of Islam.
We pray for your success in this life and the
life hereafter. May Allah(swt) help us to bring
about the khilafah state so that mankind is saved
from those who wish to destroy Allah(swt) light
on the earth.
ITG NOTE: Take things slowly,
at a pace you can work to. Firstly, learn to pray
then understand the political aspect of Islam,
see a place for yourself in the khilafah state
that will be implemented soon - inshallah!
comments: you site
is full of non sense, who gave you a right to
call saudi state of kuffer and staff, i thik you
and your s1o called shk, should first read and
understand the the prohabition of music you can
not make music halal, just cause its in your sick
heart, there is nothing called islamic music either,
get your aqiddah togthere first, then talk about
jihad and and khallifa.
The khilafah is a government and as such will
enforce legislation upon the people. The recommended
laws of Islamic conduct otherwise known as personality
will outline the guidelines regarding what Music
(Halal) and otherwise disliked or forbidden (Haram).
The other matters in your email are important
and will be given just priority.
Running a state will be a challenge at first
but with the Muslims of today being so highly
intelligent, and comprising nearly 60 governments
worldwide the result will be one of success -
If you have a specific question let us know and
we shall endeavour to answer.
comments: I an interested

could explain, how I can get a suitable wife in
a short time? Also, how can make long last relationship?
Check out the following fiqh page that may help
you towards finding a suitable partner, look under
Marriage & Marital Advice: Click
on the following link to read more:
You say a marriage in modern way, I presume
you want advise upon what you can and can't do
in say Britain with regards to Marriage as defined
in Islamic Law. Well, firstly, you cannot register
the marriage at a local registrar because Muslims
don't accept other than Islam and Islam has procedures
for marriage, a marriage contract and is acceptable
by the local authorities as an authentic marriage
certificate. Secondly, you are not to conduct
the wedding in a church or place where other religious
icons are present and finally, the woman to marry
must be either a Muslim, Christian or Jewish woman
who is not currently married.
Note: Our prophet made mention that a Muslim man
should marry a Muslim woman and that she should
have a degree of Islamic knowledge to provide
support to you during your life together.
GOOD TIP: Interfaith marriages seldom work out!
