Shahadah

If you are ready to take the step and embrace Islam as a way of life, then all that is required is for you to recite the Shahadah – the declaration of faith.

You will not have reached this stage in your journey without having seriously considered what you are about to do. You must be certain that this is what you wish to do.

Oh, you might still be a little worried, a little apprehensive, but in your heart you know that Allah is calling you and that you wish to respond to Him. Trust in Allah.

 

To enter the fold of Islam, make a declaration of your faith by reciting what is called the Kalimah.

Recite it in Arabic – and then also recite it in English to make sure that you understand exactly what you are testifying to.

It is best to go to a local Mosque or Islamic centre and declare your shahadah. The Imam can take you through the correct recital and pronunciation of the Shahadah.

If you cannot get to a mosque then you can recite your Shahadah with another Muslim to help you. If either of these is not possible then you may say the Shahadah by yourself.

If you do recite your Shahadah on your own then, as soon as you can, you should also recite your Shahadah with a Muslim witness/witnesses in attendance, or listening to your declaration (perhaps on the telephone or in an on-line conversation if necessary).

If you come from a background where you have been a practising Christian then it is sometimes recommended to recite a slightly more detailed Shahadah declaration in which all notions of a triune God are refuted.

This is not compulsory to enter the faith … If you recite the basic Shahadah with full knowledge in your heart that you reject the concept of the trinity or any other false gods, then that is sufficient to become a Muslim.

and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.”

 Once you have recited the Shahadah you have entered the fold of Islam.

Alhamdulillah. Congratulations.

And remember that the easiest way to take your Shahadah, and know that you have correctly recited the Arabic, is if you can find a Muslim who will slowly recite short phrases of the Shahadah statement for you to follow and recite. And she/he will automatically be your witness and be overjoyed at this great privilege.
