My Shadada

What is a “shadada”? It is how one enters the doors of Islam. It is there statement of faith. It is a time of choice and I have made the choice and made my declaration of faith. I have made mine–all it takes is saying the below in Arabic in front of witnesses….

I believe there is one God! I also believe that Mohamed (PBUH) is his messenger!

Yes some here in the west will think I am making the wrong choice and on the wrong path but I do believe that God has me on this path. just as he has had a hand in all that I am and have been he is here too. For me Islam makes sense in an absolute way.

My christian friends I know will not be impressed, neither will my Mormon ones, but when it comes to embracing a new faith, a new way with it comes costs and I have counted those.

I am excited as I am fearful where this path will take me but I do know this that God is with me. Guess you can call me a Muslimah now.

  1. As salamu ‘alaikum,

    Congratulation on entering the blessed religion of Islam. May Allah (the exalted) increase you in guidance and understanding.

    I commend you for accepting Islam at such a strange time. Indeed there has been much distortion of the message of Islam in the media. Allah guides whom He wills and you are an example of that fact. He has blessed you to see the beauty of this way of life.
