Other times you'll think you need to research for many years before you accept the religion, this is also incorrect.
The correct time to accept Islam is when you believe in it with no serious doubts, you are convinced it is the truth and you accept the 6 articles of faith that a Muslim must believe in, these are:
1. Belief in Allaah
2. Belief in the Angels
3. Belief in the day of judgement and what comes after this
4. Belief in the Prophets, the last and final of which being Muhammad (peace and blessings be upon him) and Jesus Christ as a Prophet of God also, not the son of God, or partner or part of God.
5. Belief in the books of Allaah, the last and final of which is the Quran.
6. Belief in the divine decree, what happens in this life happens according to God's plan.
Now are there any of these matters you have any doubt over?
