- Rep Power
Hello everyone! (OP)
I hope I can find some good conversation and build friendships here.
My religion is hard to nail down, so to speak. I have a Muslim friend on FB who calls me her friend who "doesn't know he's a Muslim".
I consider myself Christian, but it's more complicated than that. While I was raised "judeo-christian" (my term for those who believe Jesus is a God and the "jews" we have today are the descendants of the Israelites of the Bible), and after a short stint as an atheist (thanks public schools), I now consider myself a "True Christian"; one who follows God's Law, believes in One God, knows who the real Israelites are, that Jesus is God's greatest prophet, and Muhammad is God's final prophet.
I told you it's complicated.
Re: Hello everyone!
Hi Geoffrey it seems you have all the ingredients for being a muslim all You need to do know is to take the final step and say shahadah (testification of faith)
All you have to do is say with your tounge and believe in your heart the following
Ash hadu ala ilaha illalahu wa ash hadu anna muhamadan abduhu wa rasuluh (i beat witness there is no deity worthy of worship but Allah and i bear witness Muhammad is his slave and messenger)
You say this you become a muslim
Also InshaAllah you'll find this useful it was a site I used when I was new to Islam, it's a good resource to learn a bit about islam and they have a life chat q&a for you to ask questions
I'm a convert to Islam myself and I'm more than happy if you have any questions for you to message me
worship the creator not the creation
