Our Programs - New Muslim Program

To enter the fold of Islam, all one needs to do is to pronounce the testimony of faith (shahaadah) with sincere conviction; being fully aware of its meaning. The shahaadah is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam and consists of two parts:

  • Ashhadu an laailaaha illallaah: This means I bear witness that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah; I worship Him alone without associating any partners with Him in worship.

  • Wa ash hadu anna Muhammad an rasool-ullaah: This means And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah whom he has sent to all mankind.

 

The moment a person embraces Islam is without a doubt the greatest moment in his/her life. It signifies a rebirth through which he/she has come to better understand the actual reason behind our existence in this life. After pronouncing the testimony of faith, a new Muslim is recommended to purify his entire body with water (bath/ghusl).
