I've never seen such a certificate before and I'm trying to understand how this whole concept has come about.  Is it because there were some who wouldn't believe that such and such a person had become a Muslim and this was used as proof then?

 Huh?

wsalam,

It's a nice memory for the Muslim to keep with them of their day. They can frame it or keep it with them. It also may come in handy when it comes time to go to Hajj or to get married.

nice keepsake I get.

But what do you mean by
It also may come in handy when it comes time to go to Hajj or to get married.



Isn't embracing Islam merely repeating the testimony of faith, one does not need written references proving it!

It's one of the things I love about Islam, the beautiful simplicity of embracing the religion, believing and saying the testimony of faith....

Sure, but how do you prove legally that you are Muslim? Should it be anyone who says they are? Maybe, but I know Saudi requires more documentation and when you already have a certificate it's a lot easier. And I know it's something really nice that converts wish to have as a memory.

How does one do that? I know converting to Judaism invovles jumping thro a whole load of hoops, but really Saudi's expect one to prove one is Muslim??? Charming.

Why would anyone pretend  Undecided

wsalam,

Non-Muslims have been dying to go to Hajj since the time of Sir Richard Burton: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Francis_Burton and before. In Michael Wolfe's book there are a number of stories of non-Muslims who snuck into Makkah to check it out and gain fame. There were even a few who made up a whole account of going! So I really don't blame them for checking. It's a holy place and it wouldn't be right for people to go there as tourists or adventurers. Sure people can make up fake documentation or whatever if they're determined, but I think it's good that they do try to check something.

Assalamu'alaikum,

In Singapore and Malaysia, converts do require to produce certificate of conversion before marriage. By law, only muslims are allowed to marry muslims, applies to both men and women.

In Singapore, there's the called Muslim Converts Association (Darul Arqam) who looks into the interests of converts and provide developmental and support programmes. They also give out such certificates. They hv a special room for those who wish to take the shahadah officially, and its really nice, mashaAllah.

May Allah (swt) reward you in this Dunya and Jannah for creating this Certificate and making my duties more simple for being the secretary of a Masjid.  I know that you have put alot of time on this, I appreciate your time. JAK

Before one enters Makkah, ther is a checkpoint where guards do check documentation of who is coming in and what religion they are. There is no airport in Makkah, one has to drive in from Jeddah. So it's not too difficult to check. There is official documentation that they require to let you pass.

Salam purplehijabisis

I was looking for something like this earlier on today..

I gather converts/reverts are "required" to produce a certificate in order to travel to Saudi Arabia.......Somewhere I'd like to visit one day..
