21613: A Christian is Asking Whether it is Possible for Him to Enter Islam
Hello my name is XXX and I live in Sweden. I am not Muslim, but I am very interested about it. Is it possible for someone like me to become a Muslim? I feel that the Islamic beliefs are just like my thoughts. I want to know more about it.
We welcome you as our guest to this website, and we greatly appreciate your interest in Islam, because this is the means by which you may be guided, if Allaah wills. Your saying that the religion of Islam is just like your thoughts is a sign that your way of thinking is good and sound, and that your nature is good because it is in tune with the truth and ready to accept it. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):
“Allaah’s Fitrah (i.e. Allaah’s Islamic Monotheism) with which He has created mankind” [al-Room 30:30]
With regard to your question about whether it is possible to become a Muslim, the answer is yes indeed. Hasten to do so and do not hesitate. We welcome you as a questioner now and as a Muslim brother in the near future, if Allaah wills.
We congratulate you for this good start and for opening your heart to Islam, and for wanting to learn about it. All that you have to do is embrace Islam by uttering the Shahaadatayn (twin testimony of faith), then start to practice Islam and follow its laws. You will find answers to some important questions under the numbers 703, 378, 6703 and 12373.
We will be happy to answer any questions in the future and to help you to understand this great religion. Thank you once again. Peace be upon those who follow true guidance.
