Uttering the Shahadah and performing Ghusl when a non-Muslim embraces Islam

Q 1: When non-Muslims accept Islam, should they pronounce the Shahadah (Testimony of Faith) first or perform Wudu’ (ablution)?


A: They should pronounce the Shahadah first and then they should ritually purify themselves to perform Salah (Prayer). (Part No. 1; Page No. 89) According to the Shari‘ah (Islamic law), they should perform Ghusl (ritual bath), because the Prophet (peace be upon him) ordered some of his Sahabah (Companions) to do so when they accepted Islam.May Allah grant us success. May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
