Are you considering becoming Muslim but not sure what it entails? The first step is to ensure you understand the basic beliefs of Islam (found here). These beliefs consist of:

  • Belief in one God, who has no partner or son
  • All Prophets and Messengers
  • All scripture revealed by God
  • Angels
  • Day of judgment
  • God’s decree

These beliefs are what make one a Muslim. If you believe in these things you are ready to become a Muslim. To become a Muslim, you simply have to declare the testimony of faith (in Arabic it is called the shahada).

You can listen to the Shahada here:


Ash Hadu An Laa Elaaha Illa Allah
(I bear witness that there is no God except Allah)

Wa Ash Hadu Ana Muhammad Rasul Allah
(And I bear witness that Muhammad is the messenger of Allah).

The Shahada is the first pillar of Islam and is what makes one a Muslim. The five pillars of Islam (found here) consist of:

  • The testimony of faith
  • Five daily prayers
  • Giving Charity
  • Fasting the month of Ramadan
  • Performing pilgrimage to Mecca once in your life
