Why Become a Muslim ?

Before telling you how to become a Muslim, discover a few reasons that have led many converts to choose Islam as a religion, having reflected and meditated on their existence and their futures. If you would like to tell us the story of your conversion, please feel free to contact us so that we can publish it. Without further ado, here is why most people convert to Islam :

  • I discovered that islam is not what the media say.
  • I am convinced that there is a creator above all.
  • I'm convinced that the world and the universe did not happen by itself.
  • I aspire to a life of peace, justice and respect for others.
  • I have read the quran and have not found an explanation for the miracles it contains.

How to Become Muslim ?

To become a Muslim, you must pronounce what is called the Shahada or attestation of faith, before 2 witnesses. The entry into Islam then takes effect directly. You become a Muslim or Muslim as soon as this certificate is pronounced. Everyone can convert to Islam and become Muslim. You do not need the permission of someone.

Attestation of Faith In Arabic

  • Ach hadou allâ ilâha illallâh, wa ach hadou anna mouhammedan rassoûloullâh

Attestation of Faith in English

  • I testify that there is no God but Allah and that Muhammad is his messenger.

Meaning of attestation of faith

The Muslim acknowledges that there is only one One God without a partner. A God Almighty, who sees everything, who hears everything and knows everything. He knows the visible and the invisible, no glance reaches him and He reaches all eyes. It is He who gives Life and Death. He is the creator of all things.

Allah says in the Quran:

   { It is Allah. No divinity other than Him, the Knower of the Invisible as of the visible. It is He, the Most Merciful, the Most Merciful. } [Surah 59 - Verse 22]

By certifying that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, you make a commitment to follow all the words and deeds of the last prophet of Allah (sallallahu 'alayhi wa sallam). That's what we call the Sunna.

Allah says in the Quran :

   { Say: "If you really love Allah, follow me, Allah will love you Then and will forgive you your sins. Allah is Oft-Forgiving and Merciful." } [Surah 3 - Verse 31]

Beliefs of the Muslim

The Muslim must believe in Allah, His prophets, His holy books, His angels, Fate and the Day of Judgment. Is not Muslim who does not believe in all these points without exception :

  • Believing in Allah
  • Believing in the Prophets
  • Belief in the Holy Books
  • Believe in the Angels
  • Believe in the Last Day
  • Believe in Destiny

The Muslim must also know that Islam is based on 5 pillars. It is like a house, if it lacks a pillar, it collapses. If you do not accomplish all these pillars, your Islam collapses and you are no longer Muslim. May Allah preserve us.

The 5 pillars of Islam are :

  • Attestation of faith (chahada)
  • The prayer (as salat)
  • Almsgiving (az zakat)
  • Fasting (as siyam)
  • Pilgrimage (al hadj)
