I just found this forum, I've been an atheist for my whole life. Lately I've been feeling like I've been missing something, I did research on Christianity and found that if didn't answer what I was looking for. I'm looking for brotherhood of people who understand my problems, people who are genuine and accept people for who they are.
We learned about Islam in social studies and it led me to do more research on Islam, my question is does Islam give that feeling and how do I join.
To convert to Islam I suggest you do go to a mosque, it would be easier if their were others to help you. To become a Muslim, you must say the following: "Ashad Ana La Illah Il Allah Wa ashad ana Muhammed Rasool Allah." ("I testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed Peace Be Upon Him is his messenger.") Of course, you have to say this with absolute belief and conviction. Otherwise these words mean nothing.
To be a Muslim you should believe in the following:
The Last Day of Judgement
The Five Pillars of Islam:
Shahadah ("I testify that there is no god but Allah...")
Hajj (Pilgrimage if financially and physically able)
May Allah guide you to the right path.
If you are looking for religion that would give you Peace and understanding the meaning of the religion and Showing you the prove ,Not to worshipp anyother god but Allah.I would say Islam.if you became a muslim your going to understand the right meaning and the trueth feeling of it.you ll feel peace with you everyday and they are also dua that you could say while your in danger or you are mad,or unhappy or you need something.Allah SWT is always there GUIDing you.ISLAM is the true religion.and I hope you became a MUSLIM and you wiill never REgret.
