Any person can become a Muslim by simply saying with total conviction, " Laa ilaaha illa l-laah Muhammadur Rasoolu laah" one converts to Islam and becomes a Muslim. This saying means " There is no true god but (Allah) God and Mohammed is the messenger ( prophet) of God"
The first part that is," there is no true god but God". Denotes that, none has the right to worship but God alone. And that God has neither partner nor son.
To be accepted as Muslim, one should also;
1. Believe that, the Holy Qur'an is the literal word of God revealed by Him.
2. Believe that the day of judgement is true and will surely come, as God promise in the Qur'an.
3. Accept Islam as his or her religion.
4. Not to worship anything nor anyone except Allah.
The Prophet Mohammed (S. A. W ) is reported to have said, " God is more joyful at the repentance of someone when he turns to Him in repentance than one of you would be if he were riding his camel in the wilderness, and it turns away from him, carrying his food and drink, so that he loses all hope of getting it back. He comes to a tree and lies down in it's shade (awaiting death), for he has lost all hope of finding his camel. Then while he is in that state of desperation, suddenly it is there before him! So he seizes it's halter and cries out from the depth of his joy; " oh God, you are my servant and I am your lord!" His mistake comes from the intensity of his joy."
