    Re: I want to convert to Islam but have few questions

    1, yes. Anyone regardless of their racial background can convert to Islam.
    2. Depends on the name you have. If your name is idolatrous you have to change it. For example if your name was Ganesh. If not you can keep your current name
    3. Five daily prayers are compulsory. Allah doesn't burden a soul with more than they can bear so know you can handle this
    4. Under no circumstances can you worship idols. You're just going to have to deal with any trouble they give you for refusing. May Allah help you
    6. All you have to do is believe in your heart and say with your tounge the following. Ash hadu anla illaha illalahu we ash hadu Anna muhamadan abduhu wa rasuluh. this means I need witness that there is no god but Allah and I bear witness that muhamed is his slave and messenger. You say this and you become our brother in Islam.. I advise you to say this without delay as no one knows when the angel of death will come.
    7. Maybe some but Islamic teachings are completely against such ignorance
    Hope this helps
    It may not be easy, you may not understand it, but you need to have the Imaan to trust Allah when life doesn't make sense.

    muslim but i have some question. please answer

    1) can a Indian who's from Brahmin caste convert to Islam ?

    It is obligatory for every single human being to believe in Islam, Islam is for everyone, not just some specific race(s).

    2) if yes, i don't want to change my current name to Arabic it is okay ?

    You don't have to, but it's better to do so.
    However certain names, you must change.

    3) i can not pray 5 times per day because i have very busy lifestyle, 2-3 times a day is okay ?

    No, praying 5 times is obligatory no matter what. You have to adjust your lifestyle. It is very easy, trust me.

    4) my parents are liberal hindus but sometime
    they force me to worship Idol, what should i do when they force me ? also, i am just 17 can i hide this fact that i am now muslim from my Parents and
    other family members ?

    You should ask someone knowledgable about this one (a scholar).

    5) how born muslims view converts ?

    Very well.

    6) i need to know how can i convert to Islam can u guys help me ? (i want to convert to sunni Islam)

    You have to say the say the shahada. You can find out how to do so on Google, if you need help ask here.

    7) it is true that Arabs are racist against Indians ?

    I don't think so, but bad apples exist everywhere. However this question has no relevancy to Islam; the behavior of Arabs has nothing to do with Islam.

    sorry for too many questions, i hope you will
    answer my question.
    Peace
    Not many at all, and please do convert to Islam. It'll the defining moment of your life.
    You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

    You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

    May Allah swt enlighten, strengthen and bless you for the effort you put in looking for the truth by using your heart and your inetellect and may he guide you towards his light, towards the best of knowledge and may he protect you from the evil in this world.
    Im used to call myself a convert aswell and I want to tell you that when you have Allah swt in your heart, your life will change drasticlly and with each day, you will understand more and more how much and what Allah has blessed you with and how thankfull we should be.
    When you strive towards fulfilling your obligations towards your rabb, you will see how your blessings will increase
    Welcome to the truth my beloved brother

    Just one more thing, the prayer is very very important my brother.. the prayer is your weapon, your armor against evil thoughts and deeds. When you dont pray, you make yourself vulnerable in many ways, so please try to learn and understand the prayer as fast as possible

    Re: I want to convert to Islam but have few questions

    I am not sure about this, but by nature I would say it is wrong to call anyone "God" besides God himself. You yourself said that you hate idolism and by calling anything or anyone besides God God, you make room for exactly that. Shirk is the worst of sins so I would definitly try to ask someone who has more knowledge on this since it is an important matter.

    And Allah knows best.

    Re: I want to convert to Islam but have few questions

    I'm so excited for you! I'm glad you have run the extra mile and went on to study about Islam.

    There is one pro about having hindu parents, it won't be too difficult eating with them as hindus are vegetarians(am I right?) so you wont be eating non halal meat(or meat at all).

    Would you tell them you converted? How would they react? Why not have a little ambigous chat like asking them what would they do if you converted to another religion or what they think of Islam? You never know, they could convert to Islam too!

    Just want to share a beautiful hadith of our prophet on this.

    "All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslims constitute one brotherhood."


    This hadith is part of the farewell sermon given by our beloved prophet on farewell hajj.

    No, you can't. You can change it to devdas, which in arabic is 'Abdullah' which is one of the most beloved name to Allah.

    Alhamdulillah, you rejected and denounced shirk, and those false gods inspired by shaytaan that do nothing.

    May Allah keep you guided and steadfast on deen.Ameen. And may Allah guide your parents. Ameen.
    La ilaha illallahu, wahdahu la sharika lahu, lahul-mulku wa lahul-hamdu, wa Huwa 'ala kulli sha'in Qadir

    Do not say about Allah but Truth.

    subhanallah welcome brother may allah guide your family to islam also through you inshaallah ameen. start of by telling them about the hindu vedhas that prophesise the coming of Muhammad pbuh and mention him by name in the vedhas
    and also that the hindu vedhas say that you should not create images of god and that there is only one god. then introduce them to islam and the quran.

    p.s I forgot to mention one thing and that is to show your family a clip in Sanskrit on youtube called the prophet Muhammad in the hindu and Sikh scriptures

    I tried to post the link to you but it would not work for some reason but if you type in the above you should get the clip.

    Alhumdulilah brother. i'm from India too, born Muslim though. Would you please explain how you merged it soon. It would be useful as we could tell you if your getting involved in and bidah and prevent you from. In India also there is a lot of saint worship try to avoid mosques that do this. It is shirk and is like Hinduism. Listen to some Sheiks like Meraj Rabbani, etc. They speak in Hindi/Urdu.

    SubhanAllah, what a beautiful opportunity of inviting someone to Islam and I missed it. May Allah bless the one who was guided with even more guidance and may Allah bless all those who helped the brother come to Islam.

    If you have any other questions, I would be humbled to help inshaAllah.

    thank you brother

    Well you could be nice to them. A lot of them are irreligious though so I don't think they will take Islam seriously anyway.

    i have a hindu maths teacher who talks about Islam and Prophet(S) quite a lot(more than even muslim teachers).He seems to respect the prophet(S) a lot although he stopped short of practicing Islam. I didn't ask why though.

    thank you for all your support and may Allah bless you.

    Salamwalaykum,

    good to hear your story. So did you tell your parents? Might not be a good idea though.

    yeah.

    sadly, you can't. we have to choose Islam on our own.

    problem with hindus that /is we/they started to worship saints as god long time ago. and now from last thousands of years they worship every living creature as god. even rats ! (google rat temple in India) my ancestor's religion died and now we have this pesdo Vedic-Puranic-Darvidian-religion named as Hinduism.

    Not much surprising though...even Abu Talib never accepted Islam even though he knew Muhammad was a true prophet and helped him throughout his time in Makkah.

    yes i read about the rat temple.

    they have other strange temples as well. When buddhists were promoting celibacy, the hindus responded by making the Khujaraho temple. When I first read about that i was like....whoa what did i just read.

    but i think he considers it to be true, he just doesn't practice. I don't know if he took the shahada.....maybe I will ask him if i get 90+ in maths.

    MashaAllah, do let us know your new name.

    Yeah I know they worship a lot of things(more than 3 million gods as I heard). In my brief knowledge of vedic scriptures, there seem to be many contradictions in basic things. For example in some place it condemns idol worship and in other places it allows it.
