    HOW TO BECOME A MUSLIM

    All praises be to Allah, the Lord of the Universe. May the
    peace and blessings of Allah be upon Muhammad His last messenger.


    The objective of this handout is to correct a false idea
    spread among those willing to adopt Islam as their faith. Some people are
    facing difficulties on the basis of their mistaken belief that entering
    into the Islamic fold requires an announcement from the concerned person
    in the presence of high ranking scholars or sheikhs 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 an evidence to that effect.


    We wish to clarify that the whole matter is very easy and
    that none of the above mentioned conditions or obligations are required.
    For Allah; the Almighty, is above all comprehension and knows well the
    secrets of all hearts. Nevertheless, those who are going to adopt Islam as
    their religion are Muslims with the concerned governmental agency, as this
    procedure may facilitate for them many matters including the possibility
    of performing Hajj and Umrah.


    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 (SWT) for all human beings, then, one should pronounce that
    "Shahada" (The testimony of faith) without further delay. The Holy Qur'an
    is explicit in this regard as Allah (SWT) has stated.


    "Truly, the Religion on the sight of Allah is Islam."
    (3:19)


    In another verse of the Holy Qur'an, Allah (SWT) has
    stated:


    "And whosoever desires a religion other that Islam, never
    will it accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of
    those who are lost." (3:85)


    In addition, Islam is the only Religion prevailing over all
    other religions. Allah (SWT) has stated in the Holy Qur'an;


    "And to thee. We have sent the Book in truth, (This Qur'an)
    confirming the scripture that came before it, and a witness over it…"
    (5:48)


    Muhammad, the Prophet of Allah (Peace and blessing of Allah
    be upon him), said:


    "Islam is based on five pillars: testifying that there is no
    God worthy to be worshipped but Allah, and that Muhammad is the messenger
    of Allah and His servant; performing the prayer; paying the Zakat
    (obligatory charity); fasting the month of Ramadan; and perfuming
    Hajj."


    The Shahada can be declared as
    follows:


    ''ASH-HADU ANLAA ILAHA ILLA ALLAH WA ASH HADU ANNA
    MUHAMMADAN ABDUHU WA RASUULUH."


    The English translation is:

    "I bear witness that there is no deity worthy to be
    worshipped but Allah, and I bear witness the Muhammad is His servant and
    messenger.''


    However, it would not be sufficient for anyone to utter only
    this testimony orally either in private or in public, but rather, one
    should believe in it by heart with a firm conviction with the teachings of
    Islam in all his life he will find himself a new born person, (or new
    man).


    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 be becomes the embodiment of that faith.


    What would be next after declaring the testimony of faith
    (Shahada) and then becoming a Muslim? He should know the real concept
    underlying this testimony which means the Oneness of Allah and accept
    Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), as the last of the Prophet, and meet its
    requirements. He must behave accordingly applying this true faith to every
    thing he speaks or does. What do the words of "Shahada" signify.


    The significant point which every Muslim must know very well
    is the truth that there is no God (ditty) to be worshipped other than
    Allah, (Glory be Him). He 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.


    The second part of the "Sahada" i. e. "We ashhadu anna
    Muhammadan abduhu wa rasuluh" means that Prophet Muhammad (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 follow his teachings, to
    avoid what he has forbidden, and to worship Allah alone according to the
    message revealed to him.


    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 and whether private or public.


    Worship falls 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 Zakat (Obligatory charity),
    observing fast in the month of Ramadan, performing Hajj, 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 human body, [actions].


    Invisible worship is to believe in Allah, in the Day of
    Judgment, in the Hereafter, in the Angels, in the Books of Allah, in the
    Divine Decree of destiny (that good and bad are determined by Allah
    alone.


    This type of worship does not involve movements of parts of
    the body but it surely has a bearing on one's heart which subsequently
    affects his way of life. (Beliefs).


    It should be borne in mind that worship not dedicated to
    Allah alone, will be rejected as one form of polytheism or shirk, which
    amount to apostasy from the Islamic point of view.


    The next step for a devotee (newly reverted to Islam) is to
    purify himself by taking a bath (total ablution). He should then resolve
    to comply with all the principles and rules of Islam in their entirety. He
    disowns 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
    requisites of the motto of Islam that is, Lailaha Illal Laah.


    Allah has stated in the Holy Qur'an:

    "… whoever disbelieves in false deities and believes in
    Allah, hath grasped the most trustworthy Handhold, that will never break…"
    (2:256)


    we have to consider that when we declare from our heart that
    "there is no god (ditty) worthy to be worshipped but Allah." It implies on
    our part of love, devotion, faith and obedience to the rules of Islamic
    legislation which are legally binding on all Muslims. It is requirement of
    "there is no god worty 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 materializes 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 practices of the
    unbelievers and refuse to be influenced by them, both in worldly and
    religious matters.


    We conclude with a humble prayer to Allah that He may
    cleanse the hearts and souls of those who are genuine seekers of truth and
    may He bless the community of believers.
    Ameen.
