Convert to Islam

You can convert to Islam in different ways. Since it is above all a matter of the heart and takes place between the convert and God, it does not have to be spoken aloud. God alone decides if anyone is recognized as Muslim or not.

However, if you want an official certificate or if you want to convert publicly for the sake of your heart, the Shahada has to be spoken before witnesses. This can be done in our premises and made simple or festive as desired.

Wording of the Shahada in Arabic and English

أشهد أن لا إله إلا الله و أشهد أن محمد رسول الله

ashhadu’an la ilāha illal-lāh, wa’ashhadu’anna muḥammadan rasūlul-lāh.

“I testify that there is no deity, besides Allah and I testify, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.”
