Young Girl wants to embrace Islam

Question: 1984

I go to a 95% muslim school and I have been talking to them,
some girls, about Islam and I really understand the islam
religion and the ways of life. I want to know all i can find out
about islam but there is one problem . My mom .
I want to convert but I’m not sure if I know all I need to know
now to convert. What should I learn more about???

Praise be to Allah, and peace and blessings be upon the Messenger of Allah and his family.

This is a great effort that you have undertaken, and you are to be
congratulated for the results of your research and your questioning of the
Muslim girls.

What you need to know are the basic matters which are easy to learn, such
as the meaning of the Shahaadatayn (the two statements of faith) – which
are the key to Islam – and the six pillars of faith (eemaan) and the five pillars
of Islam. You should also learn how to pray so that you can begin to pray
after you pronounce the Shahaadatayn. You can find a lot of information
on these matters on this website, in the section on ‘aqeedah (correct belief),
under the headings “Issues relevant to accepting and embracing Islam” and
“Basic tenets of Islam for non-Muslims.”

As regards your mother, we hope that she will not try to stop you
becoming a Muslim. Treat her with kindness and tell her about Islam in
beautiful words – maybe she will embrace Islam too. If you are afraid that
she may turn against you if she knows about your Islam, then you do not
have to tell her about it. Embrace Islam in secret, and do as much as you
can of your duties towards Allaah. Allaah will never forsake you; in fact,
He will help you and support you, if you turn to Him. We ask Allaah to
help you follow the truth and adhere to it. We are prepared to offer any
help that we can. Peace be upon those who follow true guidance.

And Allaah knows best.
