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 hearts.

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
Allah states:

"The Religion in the sight of Allah is Islam." (Qur'an 3:19)

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 worship.

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 ITG website:

FREE 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:

  1. Visible (manifest or outward)

  2. 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.

Reply:

Dear Sir,
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 is allowed
(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 - Inshallah!

If you have a specific question let us know and we shall endeavour to answer.

Regards.

ITG

comments: I an interested in an article for marrige in modern way, which could explain, how I can get a suitable wife in a short time? Also, how can make long last relationship? ect.

Reply:

Asalmulakum brother,

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!

Please read further article on the subject at the Fiqh Page.

Jazakallahkhair
