How to convert to Islam: A guide for beginners

Converting to Islam is not a decision to be taken lightly. It requires studying and learning about the faith and deciding that you want to follow Allah’s path. If you find that Islam resonates with you in a way that makes you want to convert, here is some information on how to do it.

If you want to converter/revert to Islam, there is a well-defined process that you must follow. As Muslims, we believe that every action starts with our intention.

Make the intention to embrace Islam as your faith, saying the following words with clarity of intent, firm faith, and belief:

Say: “Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill Allah.” (I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah.)

Say: “Wa ash-hadu ana Muhammad ar-rasullallah.” (And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.)

Although you may feel discouraged by your past, take a shower as a sign of cleansing yourself and starting anew. (Some people prefer to have moment of peace before declaring their faith; choose what feels right for you.)

As a New Muslim

It’s not a one-time deal to become a Muslim. It necessitates dedication to learning and following an acceptable Islamic way of life:

Pray and practice Islam in your daily life.

Continue to learn and grow in your new faith. If possible, look for support from other Muslims. Even if some of your family members have trouble accepting your decision, try to keep communication open and be a good example by exhibiting qualities such as humility, kindness, and patience.

Share your story to connect with others and be a source of inspiration!

If You Are Considering Hajj

The pilgrimage to Mecca is one that every Muslim should make at least once in their life. A “certificate of Islam” may be required if you wish for Hajj, but don’t worry because most centers will help facilitate this process and provide witness signatures as well!

I hope this has been helpful! May Allah lead you on the straight path!
