How to embrace Islam?

Dear Reader: Embracing Islam is very easy… You have to believe that God alone is the administrator of all matters of the universe, that you love what God loves and hate what He hates, to trust Him alone, fear Him alone, invoke Him alone. All your invocations, any kind of worship and prayer, and indeed all your life will be to Allah alone. Leave what you have worshiped before other than Him, to believe that Allah is far above all the deficiencies such as the son, ‘He neither begets nor is born’ [Surah Al-Ikhlas: 3].

Further you have to believe that “Jesus” the Christ, the son of Mary is a servant of Allah and his messenger, his word sent to Mary, Spirit of God. Allah created Jesus by a divine miracle from a mother and without a father, and that he was not crucified, but Allah raised him. He is a prophet and messenger, like all other prophets and messengers such as Noah, Abraham, Moses and Muhammad prayers of Allah be upon them all.

Dear Reader, before embracing Islam, you have to say the two declarations of Islam, from your heart, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah” and in Arabic words: (ASHHADU ALLA ILAHA ILA-ALLAH, WA ASHHADU ANNA MUHAMMADAR-RASULULLAH).

I would like to congratulate you for this courageous decision, which is truly the most important decision in your life, this is the moment when you decided to surrender to Allah is the real moment of your birth, it is the moment that you liberated yourself from those who slandered a lie against Allah, distorted their religion and followed their desires to the worship of the true God. Now you have become the follower of the religion of Muhammad and Christ. (PBUT)3. You have to know that the greatest blessing from Allah that He chose you to embrace Islam, so be thankful to Allah for that blessing. (In Shaa Allah) you will feel peace in your heart that you never felt before. Whatever difficulties may come the calamity other the calamity of religion is trivial.

Last of our invocations Praise be to Allah, Lord of all the worlds.
