Islam is confirmed by reason and accepted by the heart. Nothing lasts forever in this world, nor does he himself. People can change their profession, job, place of residence and much more, but none of them can choose their parents or children, be born to him a girl or a boy, as well as a place of birth and other innate qualities. So, there is One who gave each soul, life and qualities that distinguish man from other creatures and prove that he was created. Think about it, because the mind cannot imagine a letter without writing it, a building without building, an action without acting, and a word without saying.
What is Islam
Islam is the whole world, and everything that it includes to tell at a time is simply impossible. But just the meaning of this word and its definition from the Muslim point of view is enough to understand how Islam is necessary for every creature in this world and what role it plays in the history of all mankind. 1. Islam from Arabic means peace, that is, it is the religion of the world! 2. Islam is the religion of all prophets and messengers, from Adam (peace be upon him) to Muhammad (peace be upon him), including all other prophets (peace be upon him). 3. Islam means obedience to the One God in what the Almighty obliged to do, and in what He forbade. Muslims are people who obey God in observing the obligatory and avoiding the forbidden. For Muslims, Islam is not a hobby, but a way of life leading to salvation. In Islam there are answers to all questions and what should be done in a particular situation is planned from birth to death. The Muslim religion was not invented by people, it was given to people as mercy from the Creator, because no one but God knows better than ourselves and what is best for us. It must be added to the above that Islam is not tied to a particular nation or locality, is not associated with an individual, or with a specific time. On the contrary, being the very first religion on Earth, Islam unites all nations, all people and all prophets under one banner, since there is only one truth and the Creator is only One Only God.
What does it mean to convert to Islam
To accept Islam for a girl means to become a Muslim, to follow the last of all the prophets - Muhammad, peace be upon him. To appear among those whom the Creator loves and to whom he gives his mercy and his forgiveness. When a person accepts Islam, he is cleansed of all sins committed by him earlier and becomes clean from them, like a baby, the actions of a person begin to be recorded anew, from scratch. Becoming a Muslim is a great blessing for a woman, because a Muslim is the happiest and richest man in the world. A girl becomes happy because the Almighty chose her, giving him the opportunity to follow the religion of all the prophets who were sent to people, to discover the amazing world of Islam, to understand how everything works in this life and what will be in the eternal world. The wealth of a Muslim woman is that a priceless treasure is stored in her heart - this is her faith. It is she who will protect the Muslim woman from many troubles in this world and save her from going to Hell in the Eternal World.
How to convert to Islam
To accept Islam, you need to pronounce two Islamic testimonies of faith (shahadatan) in a human-readable language with the intention of accepting Islam. • 1 testimony: “There is no God but Allah (One God)” • 2 testimony: “Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah (One God)” So, if you intend to accept Islam in your heart, you must, without delay, say the following words: “ There is no God but Allah (One God) and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah (One God). ” There is no compulsion in religion, as Kur’an testifies to this (Sura Al Bakar, ayah 286). And there are no other rules and conditions for the adoption of Islam, other than the intention in the heart and the utterance of Islamic evidence. And, truly, there is no better deed for a person and more happiness than the adoption of Islam!
Are Witnesses Required When Accepting Islam
The adoption of Islam is that between a person and God, therefore, one does not need to prove to anyone or show the adoption of Islam. This means that witnesses are not required to accept Islam. If you want to share this joyful event in your life, then there is nothing wrong with that. You can accept Islam, as people around the world accept it when they gain knowledge, when tens, hundreds or even thousands of people can be witnesses, or you can become one of those Muslim women who accept Islam at the call of the heart, without witnesses, when the mind requires confirmation faith in a word, realizing the evidence of the Creator's existence, and the heart overflows with the desire to purify, change, and become truly happy. If there are no obstacles, it is better to tell relatives and friends about the adoption of Islam in order to be firm in their religion, to walk confidently in life, changing themselves and changing the world around them for the better.
Where and when to convert to Islam
There is no specific place or time for the adoption of Islam, it all depends on the person. The main thing is to combine the intention in the heart and the utterance of two Islamic testimonies in a language that is understandable to people, as we spoke about this at the beginning of the article. The adoption of Islam is a great blessing and it is not worth delaying its adoption, because the heart is changeable under the influence of fuss and everyday worries and no one except God knows how much time we are destined to stay in this world.
To accept Islam at home
To accept Islam at home is very simple. We must leave for a moment all household chores and intend to convert to Islam to say two Islamic testimonies: “There is no God but Allah (the One God) and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah (the One God).” This is the way Islam is accepted anywhere and anytime, and there are no other conditions for becoming one of the believers in the One God.
Do I need to change my name when you accept Islam
It is not necessary for a person who has accepted Islam to change his name, but each person should think about the meaning of the name that he carries in life. Each time people turn to a person by name, it is associated with its meaning and inevitably leaves a mark on the person’s fate. The Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, urged parents to give good names to their children, and if your parents gave you a noble name, then this is good for you. The best names will always be Muslim names associated with the religion of Islam, given to a person with azan and ikamat, as it should be according to the rite of the name. There is always the opportunity to choose a meaningful and beautiful name for yourself, with a blessing to appropriate it, for example, in a mosque. Let us also recall that on Judgment Day we will be called to account by the names that we were called during our lifetime in this world. So let our names be pleasing to the ears and become a reason for a good character and a greater commission of good deeds.
If an unbeliever turned to a Muslim with a request to teach him how to accept Islam, he should immediately be taught how to read shahada, and the meaning of shahada in a language that he understands can also be understood. You can’t put off this very important thing, you can’t say: “Go take a swim then come ...”, or: “Go think well, or read some book, then come ...” - you can’t say such a thing! Imam Tukayuddin Husna in the book “Kifayatul Akhyar” said: «If a person says to a preacher: “I want to accept Islam, teach me how to read shahada,” and he will answer: “Sit down and wait while I am free”, then he immediately becomes an unbeliever».
