Mufti Sahab also gives some tips to a New Muslim and Welcome you int the fold of Islam .
The word “Shahada” means “The testimony of faith” The “Shahada” is two parts :-
The first part is to tetify: “that there is no God except Allah” – You believe that there is only One God, “Allah”. He alone is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe. He alone is without partners, children or associates. He is the Most Merciful, the Most Wise, and the Most Just.
The second part is to testify:“that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is his servant and messenger” .
Transliteration of sahada in Arabic –
Ash‐hadu anlaa ilaaha ill‐Allah, wa ash‐hadu anna Muhammadan rasulu ilah
Which means: “I bear witness that there is no God except Allah And I bear witness that Muhammad (peace be upon him) is His servant and messenger” .
Congratulations! Simply by saying this Sahada with a Sincere heart ,you have become a Muslim . Yes, You can become a Muslim simply by saying the Sahada in Private .It is between You and Allah . But if you wish ,you can go to any Islamic Centre near you and Proclaim your Sahadah before few Witness and they will issue you “Certificate of Conversion ” which will help you to Participate in Community events and go to Hajj . If for any reason, you fear that announcing your faith NOW can bring trouble ,I prefer that you do not wait for the suitable time because life is definitely uncertain . You can say the Sahadah and learn Islamic Prayers now itself and become a Muslim without telling any one . ( It is a testimony between you and Allah ) . So , If You believe in the Principles of Islam and You believe that Allah is the Only Supreme God and Prophet Muhammad SAW is his Prophet ,Come On ,do not Wait . Read the Sahada NOW !
Congratulations! If You have just read the Sahada . Take a ghusl ( Bath ) .This washes off all the Previous Sins and you become Sinless as a new born baby . Now ,try to learn Islam .I would like to introduce you to few resources that can guide you In sha Allah-
