How Does Someone Become a Muslim?
Simply by saying with conviction the shahada (declaration of faith): “La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammadur rasoolu Allah,” one converts to Islam and becomes a Muslim.
This saying means:
“There is no true god but God (Allah) and Muhammad is the Messenger (Prophet) of God”.
