The word “Muslim” means one who submits to the will of God, regardless of their race, nationality or ethnic background. Becoming a Muslim is a simple and easy process that requires no pre-requisites. One may convert alone in privacy, or he/she may do so in the presence of others.

If anyone has a real desire to be a Muslim and has full conviction and strong belief that Islam is the true religion of God, then, all one needs to do is pronounce the “Shahada”, the testimony of faith, without further delay. The “Shahada” is the first and most important of the five pillars of Islam.
With the pronunciation of this testimony, or “Shahada”, with sincere belief and conviction, one enters the fold of Islam.
Upon entering the fold of Islam purely for the Pleasure of God, all of one’s previous sins are forgiven, and one starts a new life of piety and righteousness. The Prophet said to a person who had placed the condition upon the Prophet in accepting Islam that God would forgive his sins:

“Do you not know that accepting Islam destroys all
sins which come before it?” (Saheeh Muslim)

When one accepts Islam, they in essence repent from the ways and beliefs of their previous life. One need not be overburdened by sins committed before their acceptance. The person’s record is clean, and it is as if he was just born from his mother’s womb. One should try as much as possible to keep his records clean and strive to do as many good deeds as possible.
The Holy Quran and Hadeeth (prophetic sayings) both stress the importance of following Islam. God states:

“…The only religion in the sight of God is Islam…” (Quran 3:19)

Dengan yang demikian itulah Allah perintahkan kamu, supaya kamu bertaqwa. (Surah Al-An`am: ayat 153)

 

Dan sesiapa yang mencari agama selain agama Islam, maka tidak akan diterima daripadanya dan dia pada hari akhirat kelak dari orang-orang yang rugi. (Surah Ali ‘Imran ayat 85)

Fahaman ini sebenarnya telah lama wujud dalam diri manusia yang hanya mahu kebebasan tanpa terikat dengan Tuhan. Mengapa demikian? Mari kita lihat apa itu Pluralisme!

Pluralisme ialah konsep kesamaan dalam kepelbagaian agama. Konsep ini menekankan bahawa semua agama adalah sama dan menuju kepada kemuncak kebenaran yang sama. Bagi pengamal fahaman ini, agama-agama besar seperti Islam, Buddha, Hindu dan Kristian berbeza dari segi luaran tetapi pada mereka punya kesamaan dari matlamat akhirnya iaitu Tuhan yang wajib disembah dengan ikut suka hati mereka. Asalkan mereka menyembah tuhan.
