Dr. Muhammad M. Abu Laylah, Professor of Islamic Studies and Comparative Religions at Al-Azhar University, states the following: As Muslims, we consider you a brother as a Muslim by intention. Good intention is a basis in Islam. Islam is a religion for all humanity at large. It is not limited to any particular nation or location or time.
It is always good and highly appreciated by Allah to try your best to know the truth and then to adhere to it. Allah will definitely help you and guide you to come to the light of Islam. Until you are practically a Muslim, we advise you to practice Islam.
Don’t worry about this, but, in fact, practicing Islam will help you spiritually and psychologically to receive by your heart what you are trying to know by your mind about Islam.
You can fast Ramadan with Muslims, attend prayer at the Mosque, share with Muslims in their iftar in the Mosque, and visit some Muslims. This will put you in the climate of Islam and help you feel it. If you would like to say La ilah illa Allah ‘There is no god but Allah’ with your heart and tongue, then you are a complete Muslim.
Islam is a very easy and forward religion, though it is very rich and deep. It offers mankind what helps them in this world as well as in the Hereafter. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
