To become Muslim, you simply have to declare that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the servant and messenger of Allah. You must do this with a sincere belief in the heart and a clear expression upon the tongue. The words in Arabic are: ash-hadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan 'abduhu wa rasooluhu, which is translated as: I testify that there is nothing worthy of worship except Allah and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.
How do I become a Muslim?
The Muslim Perspective
Do you have forgiveness for the failures and mistakes in your life?
How do you go about being objective and unbiased? And do your beliefs entail a self-correcting mechanism?
Honest answer: is your world view determined by knowledge or by belief?
Muslims have strongly maintained that they have a right to build a mosque on Ground Zero. Meanwhile, non believers are strictly forbidden from entering Mecca. This seems like hypocrisy. Please explain.
Is there anything that troubles you personally about the belief system you adhere to? What is it and why is it troubling?
