i've been seriously considering it, from what i've heard and read into it, it sounds like the right religion for me. i've dabbled in christianity, but i don't follow a religion atm. i'm 17, and i live in australia, and i'd like to know the steps on how to convert etc.
please dont judge me for what i'm about to say but
- i have a boyfriend, we've been going out for 2 years, i love him more then anything %26amp; we've had sex (please don't say 'just dump him' it's not as simple as that, or call me a sl*t, i do not sleep around with lots of boys, or tell me why you think this is wrong, it was my decision)
- i'm very feminist, and yer, i dont beleive men are superior to me, and i should have the same rights as him. i also dont beleive a husband is 'master' to a wife, and the husband is not head of the house.
- i drink alcohol wen i go to parties and such, and i also own a dog and 2 cats.
- my parents are not muslims, they wanted me to grow up with a open mind and choose a religion that was right for me wen i was old enough to make a decision like that, so they wouldn't have a problem, and i've discussed my intrest in Islam with them
- i've always beleived that there has always been a God.
- i go to Catholic school, and im currently doing my VCE, and have been taught a little about Islam in R.E
please treat this seriously, and give me real answers %26amp; solutions to my problemsI'm want to convert to Islam?
Go to your local mosque.
If no mosque than you testify with a Muslim present with you. If you don't have either source than say the Shahada right now with God as your witness than you will become Muslim. [Shahada: La ilaha illa Allah wa-Muhammad rasul Allah.]
(Meaning: There is no god but God and Muhammad is the prophet of God.)
There are thousands of us on here that can help you out, just contact one of us.
How to convert:
1. For a Muslim, every action begins with your intention. Quietly, to yourself, make the intention to embrace Islam as your faith.
2. Say the following words with clarity of intention, firm faith and belief:
3. Say: ';Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill Allah.'; (I bear witness that there is no diety but Allah.)
4. Say: ';Wa ash-hadu ana Muhammad ar-rasullallah.'; (And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.)
5. Take a shower, symbolically cleansing yourself of your past life.
6. Learn how to pray and practice Islam in your daily life.http://islam.about.com/c/ht/00/07/How_Co…

Welcome to Islam, you're a sister!
I'd like you to contact me via my profile so I can help you convert :)I'm want to convert to Islam?
Officer F. ☪ pretty much got everything down. But remember, if you choose to follow Islam than you must give up alcohol and sex. You are not allowed to touch any other men until your engagement. If you love your boyfriend that much, convince him to convert to Islam and you two can spend your life together.
I don't see where is the problem ?
Don't sleep with your boy friend until he is ready to marry you . There is no compromise in this . Sleeping with him is an adultery , an adultery is a gross sin , no compromise , you choose , you have a mind to follow your whims or not .
No alcohol in Islam , No compromise in this also .
No problem in having dogs .
Being a feminist or you're thinking man is not the head of the family are personal opinions and is not an issue , it's OK if you think so , many Muslim women think so , no problem .
Good luck and welcome in Islam .
If you are really serious about learning about Islam, tell me which state you're in and I can give you some idea where you can go from there. There is a lot to learn %26amp; consider before you make a decision.
you shoud make this decision rellly fast which it will change all your life
and btw dont worry about what ppl say if any one just looked at you or touches you just tell me and i will brake their faces for you
take care and welcome sister
Well if you want to then convert. However I think before any decision you should read up on islam and christianity and all religions infact. All decisions should be done with much information to hand. Good luck
say the shahada...
peace to u..
m so sorry...actually i didnt read your Q. m in a hurry...
gotta go b4 dad cumz home....so .....i ***** read the long Q.
insha-Allah some other time after my exams.
your sis in islaam
hud hud darling.
you should go for it.
ask ur muslim friends about islam or you can go to the mosque to get more info abt islam..
Visit this book. Sure you'll get some answers.
MashaAllah, I'm so so happy to hear this :) welcome to Islam my dear sister, the following will help you
Peace be upon you
The great thing is once you convert to Islam you will be sinless all your previous sins will be forgiven. You'll be like an innocent baby :D
go to your local mosque and talk to women in there. it's easier than talking to someone thru the internet. let us know how it goes. good luck! :)
I have been trying to help you understand Islam if you are ready to revert
Well first I admire you for your honesty with yourself and the courage to confront something that's been given such a bad image from media and others.
I'd also just like to say I really enjoyed so much our little stay in Perth. Aussies are awesome. Very polite, tolerant, and helpful. We stayed for three months and wish to come back for another visit soon! We also got in touch with the Muslim community there and it was really impressive. MashaAllah.
Understand that once you make this move your life will be CHANGED and for the better! There are things that you should know first.
Islam is a beautiful religion, but it's not just that. It's a complete way of life. Everything and anything that is accepted or forbidden in it is simply for your own good. But first an act of obedience and worship.
For example, premarital sex is not allowed. (Upon converting all your previous sins will be forgiven and you'll start as fresh as a baby; and if you happen to die shortly after your conversion rest assured that heaven awaits you for you are still fresh as with the story of ... ) ;)
--However-- sexual intercourse in marriage is actually an act of worship and you gain hasanat (marks in your book of good deeds) for sex!
I'll try to help you figure out some solutions and give as much answers as i can to any question you might have.
I think we'll tackle your boyfriend issue first. Like already stated, its not allowed in Islam. So your best solution get married. Since you've already been with him for so long and you've stated you love him than go for it! Get engaged and as soon as he is financially able to support you and you both are ready for it, then why not?!! Marriage is not something to be afraid of nor to be delayed. It's a beautiful joining of a man and woman to live together and make their way supporting each other to their final destination. Heaven inshaAllah, right? ;)
So you don't necessarily have to get rid of the guy, but don't see him as a boyfriend and try to refrain from sexual intercourses til marriage. He'll now be your fiance and soon your beloved husband and lawful unto you. If this is hard and it's too soon to be thinking of marriage than you shouldn't be dating in the first place. Right?
Feminist. Great! But Islam regards both genders equally, although it favors the mother over the father by 3x.... In Islam the woman is the head of the house, but the father is the head of the family. There are many rights the husband has over his wife and many rights the wife has over her husband. We can go into great details about these~!!! lol...
Alcohol is a problem. In the pre-Islamic times it was the norm. EVERYBODY drank and slept with others and partied. Cool yea? well not really. And I take that back, not everybody, the Prophet never enjoined in any of these and abu bakr also. Anyway when the Message began and was revealed it was so over a period of time. In the beginning (to make it easier on the people) Allah permitted drinks as long as you didn't come to prayer drunk. Than when people took the first step and it was easier for them to give it all up, alcohol was forbidden. And for their own health.
I would love to go into more details with you about Islam and answer any questions you may have or that might have arised. I know you have already read much and this loooong answer doesn't help :p but feel free to contact me and I have some great articles if you wanna read more.
For now since you've stated your a feminist, check these links out...

When you come to the fold of Islam by reciting the kalima, ';Ash-hadu an la ilaha ill Allah.'; (I bear witness that there is no diety but Allah) ';Wa ash-hadu ana Muhammad ar-rasullallah.'; (And I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah) all your sins will be forgiven by Allah. But, thereafter you cannot have sexual relationship with the boy friend. You will have to marry him if he is a Muslim. If he is not a Muslim, pursuade him to revert to Islam. As soon as he revert to Islam, you can marry him through the Imam of your nearest mosque in the presence of two male witnesses.
Islam gave women rights and privileges at a time when only barbaric manners and values dominated. Yet, some people argue that Islam has alienated women in some domains. In fact, this belief is a misconception. People who say so, may have read about it in a magazine or seen it on TV. A quick examination of the issues judged as unjust to women will certainly correct the misunderstanding.
Man as the head of the household:
Some people believe that a woman in Islam is regarded as inferior to man since the Quran says (what means):
';Men have one degree above women.'; [Quran 2: 228]
In fact, to understand this Quranic verse, you should see another one, related to the issue in question. It reveals the wisdom behind this concept.
In the Quran it also says (what means): ';Men are the protectors and maintainers of women, because Allaah has given the one more than the other and because men support them from their means.'; [Quran 4:34]
This verse implies that it is a man's duty to support his wife, and not the reverse, but this, in no way, makes him superior to her.
In fact, the rights and responsibilities of a woman are equal to those of a man but they are not necessarily identical. Since men and women are not created identical, they have different physical and emotional qualities, jobs and privileges. This does not mean that women are inferior.
On the contrary, women are considered crucial members of society in Islam since they are assigned the job of bringing up future generations. People today tend to look down at housewives but, in fact, raising children is one of the most important and difficult tasks. The way a mother brings up her child determines the way he will behave in the future. This duty, which requires patience, love, understanding and wisdom was significantly assigned to women in Islam because her nature suits this job.
Allaah The Exalted, in His Wisdom, has assigned a role for each member of the family so that there would be no arguments concerning who should do what. If a sailboat has two leaders, each will want to follow a path, leading ultimately to chaos and even a crash. In the same manner, how many times have your parents fought over some decision because each had their own point of view and wanted to apply it? This is precisely why it is preferable to have one leader for each household. However, this does not give the leader the right to be a dictator, or to neglect the role of his companion. This does not make him superior to other members of his family. It just gives him a larger duty.
The rules of married life in Islam are clear and in harmony with upright human nature. In consideration of the physiological and psychological make-up of man and woman, both have equal rights and claims on one another, except for one responsibility, that of leadership. This is a matter which is natural in any collective life and which is consistent with the nature of man.
The Qur'an states:“ And they (women) have rights similar to those (of men) over them, and men are a degree above them” (Qur'an 2:228).
Such a degree is Quiwama (maintenance and protection). This refers to that natural difference between the sexes which entitles the weaker sex to protection. It implies no superiority or advantage before the law. Yet, man's role of leadership in relation to his family does not mean the husband's dictatorship over his wife. Islam emphasizes the importance of taking counsel and mutual agreement in family decisions. The Qur'an fives us an example:“ . . . If they (husband wife) desire to wean the child by mutual; consent and (after) consultation, there is no blame on them . . .” (Qur'an 2:233).
Over and above her basic rights as a wife comes the right which is emphasized by the Qur'an and is strongly recommended by the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him); kind treatment and companionship.
The Qur'an states:“. . . But consort with them in kindness, for if you hate them it may happen that you hate a thing wherein God has placed much good” (Qur'an 4:19).
Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said:“ The best of you is the best to his family and I am the best among you to my family”.
“ The most perfect believers are the best in conduct and best of you are those who are best to their wives” (Ibn Hanbal, No.7396).
When the continuation of the marriage relationship is impossible for any reason, men are still taught to seek gracious end for it.
The Qur'an states about such cases:“ When you divorce women, and they reach their prescribed term, then retain them in kindness and retain them not for injury so that you transgress (the limits)” (Qur'an 2:231). (See also Qur'an 2:229 and 33:49).
For learning about the conversion to Islam, please visit the web site:
Please also visit the web sites: www.sultan.org; www.islamweb.net, and www.islamunveiled.org/ for clearing doubts regarding status of women in Islam and the life of Muslim women after conversion.
there is only one requirement to convert to to islam it is to witness that ';there is no god but allah and his prophet muhamed'; the pronouciation in arabic is ';ashhadu ana la ellaha ella allah muhamedun rasoululah';
this is called shahada and with this step you became a muslim
this is the basic requirement and by the way it is the key to paradise honest knowledgeable people know it even from other religions!
real muslims won't judge you me too i have no right to do! this is a huge step you are making i respect you a lot for taking it so the start is just 'respect' not judging you also are 17 so it is not ordinary respect just want you to know you are not just an ordinary girl you are so special..
islam will make you like a new baby without any sins or anything the counting will be restarted -so we may envy you lol-
concerning what you mentioned about yourself those were normal things for some or many who converted to islam so no need to worry just give yourself time to know what is islam at the start because the change -even it is the best- could be so hard and makes you change your mind so at the time being just know as much as you can about this great religion this is more than important believe me.. i completely agree with mariam it is all about changing life style slowly or gradually especially sex and alchohol
- READ, read and read to know more about islam this is the best way to find how great islam is: (there is a group I created to give an idea about islam it’s name is new to islam or new2islam on multiply)
1. Qur’aan: the translation http://quranexplorer.com/quran/ , the interpretation, and the miracles came in it http://www.miraclesofthequran.com/index.… this will make you believe more that you are on the right track and you will start to see how perfect it is
2. the life of muhamed the prophet (sirah) the way he was living and the way he was treating everyone you can check links here http://new2islam.multiply.com/journal/it…
3. the book of stories of all prophet to realize the whole wisdom but a reliable version
4. stories of some who already reverted or converted to islam on the net or on youtube.com
recommendations to convert :
- it is not necessary but you can search for a good mosque (or even an islamic center and they give free books too) or the nearest one to start to see muslims and know about prayers, Qur'aan and islam more ( if this step cann’t be done you just need to be in touch with some muslims community in any way social networking, TV channels...)
- to communicate with other muslims do not isolate yourself this is more healthy you are welcome to join the group I can introduce you to some who converted to islam I have the honour to know some they are great
- try to download Qur'aan and listen to it this will heal a lot.. personaly i adore Qur'aan it makes me feel i'm flying and gets me out of any troubles, anger, worries.. it heals your soul in brief
five pillars of islam are:
- to say shahada or to believe that there is one god and his prophet muhamed (in the same time you must beleive in all other religions and prophets all of them)
- to pray (five times a day) this is great both spiritual and physical
- to give charity (once a year) means to support each others
- to fast ramadan (a muslims month in hejri calendar) to feel what the poor suffer, a solution for whom who is not married, and to be prepared for any changes could happen
- to go to mekka even once in your life (only if you can afford it) so you will see the globalization theory is an islamic one
i hope i could help and wish you the best of luck.. you are free to ask me about anything you are welcome anytime also the group is http://new2islam.multiply.com/
Although I find it wonderful that you are interested in Islam. but what perpexes me is this..
Everything you do as a young girl seems to be against the whole idea of Islam... but yet you want to convert?
Are you ready to give up sexual contact with a boy till marriage?
Are you ready to give up alcohol (forever)
Are you ready to give up partying wild lifestyle, bars, clubs, disco's etc
You are not allowed to mingle and party with men.
you also dont have that much knowledge about the roles each gender plays in Islam as the man vs the female.. We are equal in our faith, but each has his/her duties to this life.. Men are granted the heads of households yes.. They are our rocks, our means of support, the shoulders we come to, etc... We as women are the nurturers, the mothers, the keepers of the house when our husbands are away.. We raise the children and help by being the glue of it all...
as for pets.. In Islam having love for pets so close as they are treated like babies is wrong.. you can have outside pets as guard dogs, or cats for mousing if you live in an area that has pests about.. but you dont bring them into your home..
YOu need to spend time with the women of the masjid (mosque) you will be attending and ask them questions.. find good resources about family life and womens roles in islam...
You know. Islam isnt that much further away than christianity.. a good christian women should be modest, dress modest, refrain from acohol etc and not party.. but somewhere people decided they knew more than God and just didnt care about that little rule of Christianity..
You are still young.. I think 17 is really too young to be sexually active no matter if you have religion or not.. You arent mature or have worldly knowedge behind you until well into your 20's... Why do you think 21 is the legal age? cause of maturity..
You need to read up everything you can.. study it more.. then really decide if this is for you.. I hope you do come to the fold if Islam
if so.. God forgives every single sin of your past.. You are like a newborn virgin afterwards.. cleansed of everything. then held accountable for anything you do there after...
@OfficerF had an excellent answer.
As far as your boyfriend, that is hard but you have to decide who you want to please more yourself or Allah. it's never easy to give up the things we love but you will be blessed for being faithful to the will of Allah. It may take some time for you to make the changes and that is between you and Allah. Don't allow anyone to judge you or base your decisions on someones opinion. Allah knows your intentions, and he will provide everything that you need to make good and right decisions.
Begin making small changes, and continue to seek the will of Allah, and live to please him. May Allah make things easy for you.
For more information about the basics of Islam and how to become a Muslim, I suggest visiting the site, http://www.islaam.ca .
I also recommend the audio below:
';Why You Should be a Muslim';
To accept Islam one must testify upon knowledge and sincerity:
1) That no one has the right to be worshiped in truth except Allaah
2) Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the Messenger of Allaah
If you like, you can also try to say it in arabic:
1) ';Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha ill-Allaah';
2) ';Ash-hadu anna Muhammadar Rasool-ullaah';
Saying these two sentences truthfully on the tongue (wherever you are or in any language) enters you into the fold of Islam. You are now a Muslim, one who submits to the Creator of all that exists, The Only One who has the right to be worshiped.
It is also recommended, after becoming a Muslim to take a full shower.
Then the next step is learn how to wash yourself before prayer and how to actually perform the prayer. Your local masjid may be able to help out with that, especially with learning the motions and how to pronounce the words in prayer.
Below is a link to a pamphlet that you can print out and carry with you on how to pray.
';A Simple Prayer Guide';
And for a guide that is a little more detailed, also with information on how to perform ritual purification before prayer, see the link:
';Laying Down Important Foundations Concerning Purification and Worship in Islaam';
May Allaah grant you success. Don't worry about getting everything right on the first try. It takes time. It is important is that you do the best you can and keep on trying to improve until you reach the point where you can easily fulfill your duties as a Muslim.
o.k sis i have no comments over hat has already happened , you can't be blamed for past but will have responsibility when ever you convert to be a muslimah !
don't worry for past , think of future as you doing !
At first i tell you few things you might know, don't take negative plz , it's positive.
in islam having gf / bf is not allowed, but to wed the one you truly love.
premarital sex not allowed.
in islam man doesn't master woman but go equally.
drinking alcohol is not allowed,
if you do un-allowed thing after you are muslimah God will not like it, it will be disobedience.
well don't take tension, learn more about islam until you are satisfied.
see if you have random Qs regarding any thing , feel free to mail me.
if you admit there is Allah, Holy quran ,holy prophet muhammad last one . then you recite 1st kalima %26amp; 2nd kalima , it's like oath.
1st; ( TAYYAB )
there is no god but Allah, muhammad is his last prophet %26amp; messenger.
2nd; ( SHAHADAT )
i testify that there is no God but Allah %26amp; he is one %26amp; muhammad is his messenger.
then practice islam in daily life as ;
reciting Quran %26amp; understanding more.
5 time prayers
charity for poor
fasting in month of Ramadan
haj if possible ,once in life.
To become muslim you say the following in arabic ';Ash-Hadu-Allah-ilaha-illal-Lah-Wa-Ash-H… Which means ';I Bare witness that there is no God But Allah and Muhammad is his messenger';
Congratulations and may allah always bless u and guide u and keep u on the straight path always, if u need any help i am an email away..
You may have slept with ur boyfriend, but that is the past and remember when u come to islam everything u did is wiped completely, it is like a new born baby, u will be born again with no sins, but many good deeds u did all ur life..
And Yes i agree, men are not superior to woman as woman are not superior to men, Infront of Allah all of us are the same...But we have been given different roles in society but that does not mean one is better than the other...Many misinterpret the Quran by sayin the Quran says men are superior to woman, But if u are a known scholar, you will read that it means that men are given the duty to take care of the female NOT that they are superior...After All Muhammad pbuh said '; The Best Of Muslims of you are the best to their wives';
Coming to islam will help u with any problems u have...But i will say that many do not come to islam BECAUSE they do not want to change their lifestyle, such as drugs, having sex with random woman, etc...And many dont because they are scared of being disowned by family etc...But if u truly beleive and know God is 1 and islam is the truth then you have nothing to fear because Allah is always with the one struggling and striving in his path.
The people of arabia were alcoholics, treated woman bad etc, but the Quran made those barbaric people into soft and kind people to the world...They even stopped things such as alcohol, sex before marriage , degrading the woman etc....
One must remember that alcohol is forbiden for many reasons such as 1 innocent drink could lead to 2, then 3 and 4 and then u will lose complete control ofurself and one should always be in control when they can...is there any guarantee 1 drink would not lead to 2? or 3?...
Islam provides many solutions and this was shown to the people when Muhammad pbuh was there...
The first thing is you have to do this without anything or anyone pressuring you to do it. It has to be your own decision. Next you have to read and make some research on what it takes to be a Muslim, and what it entails. In Australia there are lots of reverts, get to meet some of them and hear their story. Last, if you are totally convinced this is what you want, then there is no force in this universe that can stop you saying the Shahadah ( The article of faith) There is no God but Allah (swt) and that Muhammad (saw) is his final messenger. Allah (swt) guides whom He wills. InshaAllah we'll count you as a sister soon. Ameen.
PEACE be upon u sis...
first of all,thats doesn't matter in islam that what u were before,and what u did before..so u dnt have to worry abt that..
secondaly,u should first learn deeply,clear all misconceptions,and when ur heart is satisfied then go ahead..u will be shocked to know HOW PEACEFULL ISLAM IS...
actually what ever the world says islam is not right bcoz they dont have dirct connection with islam,quran and hadith,,,so what they hera abt islam they think that would be islam for exmpl:-beating wifes
the PROPHET(S.A.W) SAID...
THE BEST AMONGST U IS THE ONE WHO IS KIND WITH HIS WIFE
STUPID,DONT BEAT UR WIFE
so if u have still some confusions,and misconceptions u can mail me,,we will talk jus like close frnds..i am always here to help u.....u can contact me via y/a mail..or i wil give u my yahoo mail ....afterwords the choice will be urs
THIrdly, IF U HAVECLEARD ALL MISCONCEPTIONS,and wnat to enter into religion of peace as soon as possible.then u should go the local mosque....they will better help u in converting and they wil help u in other aspects also
IN THE LAST...
do pray to GOD that may GOD show u the right path...
WELCOME,WELCOME,WELCOME TO THE RELIGION OF PEACE
i'll be waiting for ur mail
hi Maddy ..
really nice to know you want to convert to Islam.
and congrats on you decision!! =)
when you convert/revert to Islam, all your past sins are erased and you become as pure as a new born baby. so, don't worry about them, just repent and never do them again as a Muslim. now this is where you should work on.
try to change your lifestyle slowly before you tell the shahada. read and learn more, try living like a muslim first. that includes leaving alchohol and sex. i am not going to tell you that you should ';dump him'; right away but perhaps you could interest him to Islam too. make it clear that he won't be able to touch you, kiss you and above all have sex with you no matter what. don't eat pork, start eating only halal food, dress modestly.. etc. start implementing the Islamic way of living.
you could go to a masjid (mosque) or an Islamic organisation for women which ever is near to you and tell them you are interested to learn about Islam... insha'Allah, they will provide you with study materials or even teach you. later on they will help you with the conversion.
if you are not able to go anywhere or ask anyone then we all are here to help you out with anything. user ';Officier F'; gave a great answer.
BEWARE of fake site .. like user ';Cavedust'; is giving, those sites are created by haters.
Learn Islam not muslims.
PS: i am a new convert myself, so, you can contact me anytime if you need someone to talk to.
May Allah (swt) make your journey towards and in Islam easy. Ameen.
edit : there is a feminist bug in everyone my dear. Islam gives women more honor than men. i am against society that deprives women their rights. but Islam doesn't oppress women.
infact, at the time of Prophet Muhammad (salallah allayhi wa'sallam) the women were severly oppressed and had no rights at all but when Islam came, women got many rights and preveledges.
Congratulation. Go for it.
Say Kalma There is no God except Allah and Prophet Mohammad pbuh is his messenger.
ONce you said this kalma you entered in Islam and when you entered in Islam you have to follow the teachings of it and have to leave all the bad things you do and what you did before that will inshallah Allah will forgive you. But if you continue those bad things after becoming Muslim so you will be punished after this life and that will be dreadful. So you have to leave your boyfriend and have to ask forgiveness from Allah. Whatever Quran and hadith says do that.
For more Read Quran and hadith.
No matter what sins you have committed or how wild your past was. You can still become a Muslim.. Islam erases all sins committed prior to becoming a Muslim. Prophet (may the peace and blessings and mercy of Allah be upon him) said, Islam annuls what came before it. (narrated by Muslim in his Sahih, no. 121).As soon as you become a Muslim all your previous sins are forgiven and you start a blank state. Or a complete clean record.
To become a Muslim one must simply pronounce the Shahaadatayn (Declaration of Faith) with sincerity and conviction.
The Shahadah can be declared as follows:
';ASH-HADU ANLA ELAHA ILLA-ALLAH WA ASH-HADU ANNA MOHAMMADAN RASUL-ALLAH';.
The English translation is:
';I bear witness that there is no deity worthy to be worshiped but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is His servant and messenger.';
If there are no Mosques or Muslims were you live you can declare the Shahadah to your self..
Once you have said the Shahadah then you will be like a New Born Person. Free of any sins. Just like a child is born sinless.
this link will give all the steps to do to become a muslim(how to clean your self,how to take a shower and how to perform prayer,you can also live a message and they will reply to you)
www.muslimconverts.com and www.shariahway.com
you will suffer deeply in sunnite and shiite Muhammadanism, so it's best for you to be an independent moslem, for that's the real islam of ibrahim and mohammad. this is also the only way to keep your free mind and status. for mohammadians will kill you or at least threat it if you changed your mind. they are as lost as christians and jews, and the answers they gave you are wrong. ';all of your sins will be washed and you will be like a new born'; no knowledge from qoran they have, only hadith of fabrications and crime. no sin is washed without specific asking for forgiveness, and reforming, and some sins will be with some trace even after your choice but you will see it will be best for you.
they tell you to say things in arabic and pray i arabic, all nonsense, god doesn't accept animals, and humans are mindful for one reason that is language, so you should always use the language you understand and don't listen to the parrots.
don't go to the local msque to learn, for the mohammadians murderers will be waiting. you will hardly find any real moslem.
-mohammadians will tell you to leave your friend, and they won't let you marry him unless he converted to islam. the only thing i can agree with them on is that you shouldn't have sex without marriage, it's a grand sin that could send you to hell forever even if you are moslem, unlesss you stop it, ask god for forgiveness, and try to marry your boy friend. for even after you are moslem, you will not be allowed to marry a believer who didn't commit this grand sin. so you can marry your boy freind, even if he remains nonmoslem. you will be forgiven by god but there are restrictions. you may marry a moslem who did this grand sin or any one from any religion who did it or a pagan. these are qoran's rules and i can prove it, mohammadians have no evidence nor light. and be very careful about mohammadians translations of the qoran.
- real islam is very feminist, mohammadians will give your husband rights to beat you and marry a second wife, real islam i the light of qoran is very different. islam made great ways for moslem women to keep their rights and equality to men, but mohammadians will cover your heads and arms in mid of summer until you explode from heat, they will despise you like the bible despised women, without any evidence from qoran, just fabricated hadith and miss interpretations of qoran.
- they will tell you alcohol is forbidden, but when you read qoran you will only find three forbeden food: dead animals, blood, and pork. but you are strongly advised to avoid alcohol, specially getting drunk as much as you can, and never while you are praying. mohammadians know nothing, they will even tell you that it is allowed to eat dead locust or fish (not hunted) or bloody leathers and spleens, according to their fabricated hadith, they have no respect for qoran, so don't believe them. i was in a sunnite family and left it to atheism at 19, i couldn't tolrate their lies.

now i'm an independent moslem
Well one thing is for sure, you're going to have to stop having sex with your boyfriend until you are married if you convert. Because being chaste is a big thing for women in Islam.
I have an idea, why don't you try reading a English translation of the Quran? Or have a private consult with a devoted Muslim who's willing to tell you everything you want to know. Then decide if you want to convert or not. Then head over to any mosque and ask them if you're ready to convert. Good luck with any decision you make.
repeat after me
ashhad anna la ilaha illa allah wa ashhado anna muhammedoon rasool allah. after that u will become muslim. lol......u know if u r christian and u convert ur religion its a sin right? read the bible my friend. jesus talks about the the sufferings in hell when one betrays jesus. did u read what god did to the israelites when they worshipped stones and statues of gold when moses went to the mountain?
i encourage u to rethink because not only it is a sin but its just weird. islam is not a bad religion by any means but it will be hard to adjust. its good u have those beliefs that are positive and u r very confident and strong minded. thats how a muslim woman acts and i guess i can say its ur choice and i wish u good luck with that.
ok i understand what you are saying.
its not going to be easy but yet again its not going to be that hard if you think straight. No boyfriends or girlfriends.
i know its not that simple for you but is your boyfriend willing to convert too?
- If you become muslim all your sins will be forgiven and they will be turned into good deeds :)
Firstly no gays are allowed in islam, Its forbidden, wrong and unnatural.
No intercourse before marriage)
Believe in allah and his angels and his prophet Mohammed. (shahada) ( i bear witness that there is no god but allah, and mohammed is his last messenger )
Fast during the month of ramadan.
zakah( donate money to poor generously)
Hajj( the pilgrimage, if you can afford it once in a lifetime )
