All praises be to God, the Lord of the Universe. May the peace and blessings of God be upon Muhammad, His last Messenger.
You do not need anyone’s permission to become Muslim. You can be any color, race, age, speak any language and still become a Muslim. You do not need to complete a course or obtain a certificate to become a Muslim. All you have to do is to say the Muslim testimony of faith known as the Shahada.
The Shahada is declared as follows:
“ASH-Hadu An La Elaha Illa-Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Mohammadan Rasul-Allah”.
The English translation is:
“I bear witness that there is no deity but, God, and I bear witness that Mohammad is the messenger of God”
However, it would not be sufficient for anyone to merely utter this testimony orally either in private or in public; but rather, they should believe in their hearts with firm conviction and unshakable faith. If one is truly sincere and complies with the teachings of Islam in all their life, they will find themselves a new-born person.
However, for those who require a document to show that they have officially become a Muslim, ICCNC will issue a certificate to this effect.
One photo ID is required. There is no fee for this service, however donations are always welcomed.
