How does someone become a Muslim?

Entering the Faith: "Shahadda"

WHY SHOULD I BE A MUSLIM?

Since the consequences of false religion are so grave, the true religion of God must be universally understandable and attainable, not confined to any people, place or time. Within the central principle of Islam and in its definition, lies the roots of lslam's universality. Whenever man comes to the realization that Almighty God is one and distinct from His creation, and submits himself to his Creator, he becomes a "Muslim" and is eligible for paradise. This is the essence and the corner-stone of Islam:

"Laa Elaaha i-llallaah" (There is nothing worthy of worship except for God alone)

Its repetition and the sincere belief in it automatically brings one within the fold of Islam and guarantees one Paradise. Thus, the final prophet of Islam is reported to have said, "Any one who says: there is no deity but God-(Allah) and dies holding that (belief) will enter paradise." (Reported by Abu Dharr and collected by Al-Bukhaaree and Muslim).

THE BOTTOM-LINE:

Islam is the universal message of God to mankind, and Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the final and last messenger of God. Our creator will not accept any other way of life as He Himself asserts:

"If anyone desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah-(God)) never will It be accepted of Him" (The Qur'an 3:85)

Considering submission and obedience to God is the only Savior from all of society's evils and most importantly it is the only option you have that can deliver you from Hell-Fire. Submit yourself to the Will of God before it is too late.
