I have a friend that recently converted into Islam. However, there has been few problems that arises from that. Here they are; 1. she said the shahada alone, by herself in her room without witness. is that enough for her conversion or does she need witnesses? and if she does, how many? 2. her family is opposed to her being a Muslim, so is there any help group in her town that could help her such as motivating and guiding her?
She lives in Albania and if I am not mistaken in a city called Tirana.
