Revert legal certificate

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.


Your Question: is it important accept islam with law?why?wich reasons?

Dear and beloved Sister in Islam, rest absolutely assured that as soon as one declares the ‘shahaadah’ or testification of faith that there is no god worthy of worship except Allah and that Mohamed (saws) is the Messenger of Allah….one would be deemed to be a legal ‘muslim’ in the Sight of Allah Subhanah, Shariah Law, and of the believers. Every single right that is due to a believer would be accorded to the revert brother or sister in full after their declaration of the ‘shahaadah’.


There is absolutely no need, or requirement, or obligation for one to go to a worldly or a Shariah Court of Law, or a Masjid, or an Islamic Centre, etc. and declare one’s intention to become a muslim, if one does not wish to do so! If one’s heart is convinced regarding the Absolute Oneness of Allah Subhanah and the Prophethood of Prophet Mohamed (saws), even if one were to declare the ‘shahaadah’ in one’s own heart….one would be a believer in the Sight of Allah Subhanah; for the Lord All-Knowing Knows the very secrets of one’s hearts!


The reason some revert brothers and sisters choose to go to court, or the masjid, or an Islamic Centre and declare the ‘shahaadah’ and seek to obtain a document stating them as ‘muslims’ is only so that they would be formally accepted as believers by the society at large, or so that they may fulfill the legal formalities of travel to enable them to visit the Sacred House of Allah in Makkah, or so that all the other rights that are available to muslims can also be legally accorded to them in their society (marriage, inheritance, burial, etc.).


But if one who reverts to Islam, for any reason whatsoever, chooses or wishes not to obtain a legal document or certificate classifying their belief as ‘muslims’, they are under absolutely no obligation in Shariah Law to obtain such a document or certificate.


Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.


Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
