Do you believe in ONE GOD who has no partner in divinity or worship?
Do you believe in Angels?
Do you believe in the books that God sent down, like the Bible, the Torah, the Psalms, and the Quran?
Do you believe in the prophets, the messenger of God, like Jesus, Moses, and Abraham?
Do you believe Muhammad was a prophet?
(May the peace and blessings of God be upon them all)
Do you believe that you will meet God when you die, that you will be resurrected, and held accountable for your deeds in this life?
Do you believe in Divine decree, that everything, good or bad, comes from God?
(as a side note, in Arabic, Allah is the proper name for God. because Arabic is originally an oral language, "Allah" - God- is differentiated from "illah" -any worshiped being- in spoken arabic just like lower case g, god is differentiated from upper-case G, God in written English. so Allah is not a different God from the ones that the other Abrahamic traditions believe in. the only difference is in Christianity because God does not have a son, as most Christians are misguided to believe, and the polytheistic concept of trinity does not exist. thus, although Allah is the same God that Christians claim had a son, Allah and Jesus are not part of the one-and-three concept that Christians these days believe in. Jesus is strictly a human being and a messenger of God, born of a miracle, virgin birth, and one cannot be Muslim if they do not believe this.)
If you said yes to all of these questions, you're almost a Muslim.
A Muslim is one who submits his will to God, and Islam is the religion, Islam is submission to Allah.
Make it official, by saying the testimony (one of the five pillars of faith):
LA - ILL- LA - HA - ILL- ALLAH.
MUHAMMAD - DUR - RA - SOOL - ALLAH.
There is nothing worthy of worship except Allah
And Muhammad is his last and final messenger.
Congratulations! You are now a Muslim :)
