How to Convert People to Islam
Maybe you have a friend who seems really interested in Islam, and not tied to any particular religion or practices another faith? You've come to the right place! This article will teach you how to guide people to Islam.
Remember there is no compulsion in Islam, so you cannot force anyone to become a Muslim.According to The Noble Qur'an, Allah says, "Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things." Islam allows freedom of religion, and it is prohibited for a Muslim to be hostile or argumentative with a non-Muslim unless they are as well. Trading, for example, is allowed, and the Prophet (peace be upon him) used to trade with Jews.
Check yourself.Make sure you are demonstrating good Muslim behavior on a daily basis. It's also very important that you love Islam and have some knowledge on it before you teach others. To not do so would be hypocritical.
Teach them about Islam.Remind them it isn't just about the Islamic extremists and the media. Don't be hostile, though, and make sure you know what you're talking about. Some good topics to start with are the five pillars, the articles of faith, the last messenger Muhammad (SAW), Islamic history, and Islamic philosophy about life. You can draw connections to other religions to help them understand and to broaden their knowledge.
Tell them about Islamic duties and rules.Islam has certain regulations about several aspects of our lives. These regulations include the five pillars of Islam, which underline the fundamentals of Islam that must be completed by every able Muslim, dietary guidelines, dress code and the hijab, the method of washing ourselves through wudu and ghusl, and the sunnah, which is the practice of the Prophet (peace be upon him). Every Muslim must strive to follow the example of the Prophet, who was a perfect being.
Take them to the mosque.Ask them if they would like to go; this is so they can watch how Islamic worship is done. Explain to them the different parts of prayer, and how things are arranged in a mosque. They should understand the etiquettes of the mosque; they must remove their footwear, understand that prayer rooms are segregated, and they must be quiet and respectful. The mosque is a place not only of worship but also knowledge and peace.
Help them cultivate their knowledge.If they seem really interested, give them an English translation of the Qur'an or some books about Islam to help them develop their knowledge. Consider giving them a version of the Qur'an that includes explanations (tafseer) and/or background information so that they can follow along. Link them to your favorite Islamic websites.
Tell them how to declare faith.The Shahada (testimony of faith) is "La ilaha illallah Muhammad-ur- rasulullah." [There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.] If they want to follow Islam and worship Allah, they're ready to become a Muslim.

- Remember that no one faith is right for everyone, and Islam is no exception.
- Make sure your friend is comfortable with all this. They should be interested in most of what you're saying, and by the last two steps, it should be clear that they're on the path of conversion. It's really hard for anyone to accept a religion, so remember to be patient.
- Do not obsess and insistently try to convert others. You will only be a nuisance and people will dislike you and perhaps view Islam negatively.
