I am a Muslim ... now what?

This could be one of the most important moments in your life ... here are some pieces of advice from Mufti Menk to help you start your journey

  • What is the concept of God in Islam?
    In Islam, the concept of God is monotheistic. Allah (God in Arabic) is believed to be the one and only deity, transcendent, all-powerful, and merciful. Islamic theology emphasises the oneness of God, known as "Tawhid," and rejects the notion of partners or associates with God.
  • Who authored the Quran?
    Muslims believe that the Quran is the spoken word of Allah (God) and revealed to the Prophet Muhammad over a period of approximately 23 years through the angel Gabriel.
  • How do I become a Muslim?
    To become a Muslim, sincerely declare the Shahadah, stating: "Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasulullah" (I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His messenger). This declaration signifies your acceptance of Islam. Afterward, seek guidance from the Muslim community, learn about Islamic practices, and connect with others for support.
  • What does the Shahadah mean in Islam?
    The Shahadah is the declaration of faith in Islam, affirming the oneness of Allah and the prophethood of Muhammad (peace be upon him). It is the foundational pillar of Islamic belief.
  • Do I need to learn Arabic before accepting Islam?
    No, it is not necessary to learn Arabic before accepting Islam. Learning Arabic can be beneficial for understanding the Quran and prayers, but it's not a prerequisite for embracing Islam.
  • Is converting to Islam easy?
    Yes! Converting to Islam is Easy. Simply Accepting the Testimony of Faith also known as the declaration of faith, is all it takes for a person to enter the fold of Islam.
  • What is the procedure to convert to Islam?
    Converting to Islam involves a simple and sincere declaration of faith, known as the Shahadah. The Shahadah is recited in Arabic and translates to "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger." This declaration can be made privately or, if desired, in the presence of witnesses. Feel free to contact us if you would like someone to guide you through the Shahadah process.
  • Do you revert or convert to Islam?
    Both terms are commonly used to describe those who embrace Islam as adults after having been raised in or practicing a different faith system. Revert implies that you have returned to a previous state of submission.
  • Do you need a witness to convert to Islam?
    No, a witness is not required for an individual to convert to Islam. The conversion is based on a personal declaration of faith, the Shahadah, made sincerely by the individual. However, it is recommended to notify someone of your decision.
  • Is it compulsory to change name after converting to Islam?
    No, it's not compulsory to change your name after converting to Islam. It's a personal choice, and many people retain their given names if they have positive meanings and align with Islamic values. However, if your name has a meaning that goes against the teaching of Islam then you should change your name.
  • Are there support groups for new Muslims?
    Yes, many mosques and communities have support groups for new Muslims. Joining these groups provides a sense of community and assistance on your journey.
  • What do you say when taking the Shahadah?
    "Ash-hadu an la ilaha illallah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan rasulullah." This translates to: "I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His messenger."
  • Can you take your Shahada on your own?
    Yes, you can take your Shahada on your own. The sincerity of the declaration is what matters, and it can be done privately or in the presence of witnesses if desired.
  • Do you have to go to the mosque to convert?
    No, you don't have to go to the mosque to convert to Islam. Conversion can occur privately, but some choose to do it in the presence of witnesses at a mosque or with the support of the Muslim community.

Listen to the Quran

The Quran was revealed to Prophet Muhammad [Peace Be Upon Him] through Angel Gabriel. Today millions of Muslims around the world recite the verses of The Quran as it was revealed; in Arabic. Even though we read the translation to understand the meaning of the Arabic verses, recitation can only be done in the original language - simply because it is the spoken word of God.

Allah! There is no god ˹worthy of worship˺ except Him—the Ever-Living, All-Sustaining. He has revealed to you ˹O Prophet˺ the Book in truth, confirming what came before it, as He revealed the Torah and the Gospel ...

[Quran 3: 2-4]

Scientific Facts in the Quran

The Quran instructs Muslims to "contemplate the wonders of creation" [Quran 3:191]. Islam teaches that the entire universe was created by Allah, therefore it follows and obeys His laws. Muslims are encouraged to seek knowledge, explore the universe, and find the "Signs of Allah" in His creation.


The Quran, although revealed in the 7th century C.E (over 1400 hundred years ago) contains many scientifically-accurate statements. But how would this knowledge be known back then?
