Islam gets a bad rapport and has many misconceptions, But Islam has always been about peace. There is so much I could write about this beauty of Islam. But I will leave it you discover. Madina mosque offers to answer any questions you may have. Converting to Islam easy. But as with any religion, it requires submission to god will. The word Islam means submission. Islam is not a new religion and has been here since 7th Century. When you convert to Islam, you will become a “Muslim”, The word “Muslim” means the one who’s submits to the will of god. The main message of the prophets has always been that there is only one god and only he is worthy of worship. The prophets started with Adam and were followed by Noah, Abraham, Moses and many others, peace be Upton them all. You will discover thru your journey as a Muslim, the wonders of Islam from the 5 pillars to the Holy Book “The Quran”. Muslims prey to “Allah” the Arabic word for god. I know that with any new journey, there are always nerves and jitters. Madina mosque offers to make this journey a peaceful and wonderful as possible. You will have access to free Unlimited Islamic knowledge as well as be able to talk to fellow Muslims, who will become your brothers as you join this great family of 1.7 billion Muslims and growing fast. Believe me when I say this, that this will be the greatest decision you ever make. Like with any big decision, its takes time should be taken one step at a time.
Becoming a Muslim is a simple process. All that a person has to do is to say a sentence called the “Shahada” (Testimony of Faith),
which will need be pronounced as:
I testify “La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad rasoolu Allah.”
Which in Arabic means, “There is no true god (deity) but God (Allah), and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God.” Once a person says the Testimony of Faith (Shahada) with conviction and understanding its meaning, then he/she has become a Muslim.
There are many duties of a Muslim, which you will discover yourself from the 5 mandatory daily preys to the month of Ramadan. Just remember you will make mistakes and feel hardships as with any human being. But the rewards as you will discover are abundant in the form of eternal Paradise.
I will leave you with this message, by converting to Islam today, you will earn more “swab”, means good deeds then someone who was born into a Muslim family. Upon converting to Islam, all of one’s previous sins are forgiven, and one starts a new life of righteousness. Once a Muslim, when one makes a mistake thereafter, he/she can always repent to Allah who forgives the sins of those who repent to Him sincerely. This process is done between you and the almighty. All you have to do is ask.
So please contact the Madina mosque for details and you will also be given a document stating the start of your new journey.
