salaams peeps,
been giving dawah to a friend (lady at work),
she wants to revert,
and inshallah i hope she does become a muslim.
She posed a question to me,
and i don't know the answer,
she asked if she needs witnesses when she
recites the shahada (testimony)?

so peeps,
does she or doesnt she? lol :)

It is not essential for one to declare one’s Islam before witnesses in order for it to be valid

Coming to the point of making Shahadah in public, we’d like to draw your attention to the fact that Islam trains Muslims that pubic and secret deeds are known to Allah. Therefore, making Shahadah in presence of witnesses is not an essential condition, though it’s preferable to put the official arrangements in order. Islam, as a matter of fact, lays more emphasis on conviction on the part of the person who embraces Islam. This is what really matters, as there should be no compulsion in religion.

To my knowledge , if she officially wants to be recognised as a Muslim , then she needs witnesses. Otherwise just to accept Islam , she does not need to utter the shahada in front of anyone .
