How do you become a Muslim?
The Seeking Islam website is here to help anyone who is thinking about Islam and who wants to find out how to become a Muslim.
Many people before you have gone down this same path and have converted to Islam. They have all come from different backgrounds – some already had a faith in God, but many people were agnostics or atheists and didn’t believe in God or have any time for religion.
On Seeking Islam, you will find the stories of people just like you who have made the journey to Islam and become Muslims. You will also find some useful information on the site that will help answer some of the questions you may have about becoming a Muslim.
May God guide you on this journey you are taking and may He guide you to the Straight Path.
One of the reasons we made this site is to reassure you that you are not alone. You might not have anyone you can turn to ask about the questions that are going through your mind. You might even be a bit worried at what is happening to you.
Please email us with any questions that you may have about Islam or about becoming a Muslim. We will try and answer your questions :-
The greatest help for you on this journey is to simply ask God for His help.
If you don’t know how to ask Allah for help, then just sit down in a quiet place and speak to Him. You can do this out loud or in the stillness of your heart.
Sit on a chair – sit or kneel on the floor.
Ask God to guide you and help you. To guide you on a straight path to Him.
You should also read the Qur’an. Get yourself an easy-to-read version of the Qur’an in your own language. If you can’t find a Qur’an in your local shop, ask us to send a copy to you.
There is so much in the Qur’an that will help make sense of everything you are going through.
It will really help you if you ask Allah for His guidance and His help in understanding what you are reading every time you sit down to read the Qur’an.
Say to Allah – “Guide me on the straight path”.
Take your time. If you come across something that you don’t quite understand, read it a few times to see if you can make sense of it. Write it down so that you can try and find out the answer later.
We ask that Allah , the Most High, guides you on a straight path and helps you with every step you take and with every thought you have.
