Hello, so basically when I was 12 years old I went through confirmation class at my Christian church. I recently started to wonder what I actually gave vows to and so I read the official church confirmation meanings and vows. I have vowed to always uphold the church as long as I should live and to always follow and obey the church. I was 12 when I Made these vows and oaths and I was forced by my parents to get confirmed. Does this mean I can never become Muslim?
In Islam every child is born a Muslim. it is their parents that bring them into different religions. if you want to convert, it doesn't matter what you did in the past. Allah forgives everything and you will be welcome as a Muslim. I emailed some verses from the Quran that can probably help you.
I have a request. Do,not pay heed to what the church says but to the bible itself.
Ask yourself these questions when reading bible:
1) Prophecy of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
2) Submission to one Allah only.
3)Never said that Jesus (pbuh) himself is god
4) Why are there so many versions? They just took out some fabrications in bible in rvs version of bible. Humans are themselves producing editions and removing.
I am sure you will come to the truth. But you have to read full bible in it's context.
Do you know bible reaffirmed my faith in Islam? Because Qura'n says:
Thank you for your question
May Allah bless you! Allah has indeed been Merciful to you that He has bought you close to His religion Islam.
Yes you can convert to Islam. You do not have to follow the oath you made (and it will be sinful to follow it) because it involves the disobedience of God.
The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: "Fulfill your oath. There is no fulfilling of oaths that are disobedience to Allah or concerning something that a human does not possess." Recorded by Abu Dawud. Authenticated by al-Albani
And one of the greatest act of disobedience to God is to turn away from His religion and His signs after God shows them to the person and he now sees the truth.
To convert to Islam is very easy! All you have to do is say while believing in these words: ash hadu al la ilaha illallah (I bear witness that there is no god except Allah) wa ash hadu anna Muhammadan abduhu wa rasooluhu (and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger.
