Congrats BRO :) Allah will make ur path easier and guide you more.

yes u have to do things

Shahada Shahada is the declaration of faith, i.e. the professing that there is only one God (Allah) (monotheism) and that Muhammad is God's messenger.[9] Kalima is a set statement normally recited in Arabic: 'La 'ilaa-ha 'il-lal-laa-hu mu-ham-ma-dur ra-soo-lul-laah "I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except God and Muhammad is His Messenger." ; it is a key part in a person's conversion to Islam.[10]

1) Beliefs a)Believe in Oneness of God .There is No god But Allah.None of them worthy to worship except Alllah. for refer Read Quran Chapter 112 Surah Ikhlas also. b)Believe in Prophet Muhammad as a Last and Final Messenger of Allah after that no messenger will come after him.Believe the Holy Quran revealed on Prophet Muhammad S.A.W is the final revelation by Allah. c) Believe in the Judgement day means this world is finished one day and everything became dead and then allah alive all the dead person and audit them and then sent them to heaven or hell basis on their deeds.for going Heaven A Person should be a Muslium.(mandatory)

d)Believe All Previous Messengers & books came before Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. There are several books by name these are mention in quran (Turait, Zaboor, Injeel)same as for Messengers by name only 22 names are mention in Quran.

e) Believe in Angels, Genes are the Creation of Allah.

Prayers 2 Salah: Daily Prayer Five times{Fajr (dawn), Dhuhr (noon), Asr (afternoon), Maghrib (evening), and Isha' (night)} 3 Zakāt (Charity) to poor Muslium people Once in a year it is obligatory for those who have savings per year. 4 Sawm: Fasting one Month (Islamic Calendar Ramadan) Once In a Year 5 Hajj: Pilgrimage to Mecca once in a life is compulsory if u have enough money/health to bear it. 6 Jihad : Striving in the way of Allah These are few basic thing about islam search details about it and read it slowly and gradually gain knowledge about it and for reference or checking refer to quran and hadith and if u r in doubt refer to a Islamic scholar.

As salaam alaykum. All praise be to Allah subhana WA taala for your embracing Islam. My advice to you along with what has already been said . Is take steps at a time. Once you learn something apply it. Then go on to the next and so on and so forth. Having just the knowledge is only a small part. You want to apply it all to your life and act upon it subhana Allah.

First of All, I want to congratulate you for reverting to Islam. It feels like if I got a sibling back :-).

As other people have already given you idea about what you have to do next. I just want to quote a verse from Holy Qur'an and it summarizes what you have to next,

Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allah , the Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle. Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
[Holy Qur'an 2:177]

And, one thing more. To gain knowledge of Islam.

I would advice you to search for Islamic Lectures on Youtube. As these Audio and Video lectures provide the quickest method to learn about Islam. My favorite speakers are Zakir Naik, Noman Ali Khan and Yousuf Estees.

However, The best sources are free islamic books which are in abundant on internet and It would be better if you take some time out to read islamic books. Some of my favorite and free sources include,

Assalam o Alaikum..

Congratulations first of all that you are on the right religion now.

Brother, becoming a Muslim and proving to be a Muslim are two different points. Well done that you have converted but now you need to do all that what is prescribed by the Holy book and the Sunnah of all 24 prophets mentioned in the Quran. Read Quran and try ur best to understand it and practice the teachings of Quran in ur practical life. Moreover, pray five times a day and seek guidance from Allah, verily He helps and loves everyone. If you take one step towards Allah, He take 10 steps towards you, if you walk towards Allah, He runs towards you. So strengthen your faith by reading Quran and practicing it in ur life, then once you have got the knowledge, start preaching it to others too.

May Allah be always with you and shower His Blessings on you.

Fi Aman Illah..
