Long ago at age of 15, thelast night I was a Christian, my Muslim father asked me who was the last prophet?

I answered him Jesus,then my father asked one more,who is the last prophet?

I replayed: I don't know,you know.

And he said that's because your a Christian and he answered: prophet Muhammad is the last prophet, and then I asked him: huh? How do u know? There are many prophets back in history.

And he said:You always think of the last prophet.

Then my Muslim father asked me:Do you want to become a Muslim?

And I replayed: No,because I'm not ready for it.

And he said that's no problem you can learn what other Muslims know things.

And as a replay I said: No.

And he said you don't know what is good for you. Then when I went back to sleep, I asked God to forgive me that I did not want to become and then I said in my mind:No no,tomorrow I will show to my father that I know what is good for me, and my feelings told me that go ahead ask your father how to become a Muslim and next day I asked him: How can I become a Muslim

He answered by saying: There is no God but one God and Muhammad is God's prophet,and then I repeated after him.

I then asked him if I can say on my mother language(Romanian): Nu exista niciun alt Dumnezeu decât unu iar profetul este Muhamed.

And my father said to me: Finish,congratulations,you have become a Muslim.Am I considered as a disbeliever what I mentioned in this text?

Just to know

  • You now believe Allah is the only true god , and Muhammad is his messenger. So you are a Muslim . Denying or doubting that Muhammad is the last prophet of God : is a disbelief. – Butarek Hd Sep 7 '17 at 20:30

"Am I considered as a disbeliever" - No.

From your description, on that last night... you were displaying ignorance at best or rejection of the Prophet Muhammad (disbelief) at worst. BUT, everything you described here happened before you accepted Islam. Once you accepted Islam, then your entire slate was wiped clean of all sins and disbelief. It is going forward from there that it starts counting. So your actions on that last night before you accepted Islam don't affect your status as a Muslim now. :)

Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) said, "Islam wipes out whatever sins came before it" - Ahmad (17159).

  • So it is ok if I made a haram thing or a sin then I can use the testimony of faith to wipe out all sins including haram things?I have also intention to be wiped out all sins,is it ok?Acceptable? – Alex A Sep 11 '17 at 14:20
  • Coz if I did a disbelief or shirk without me to know then I can use this in case of everything?Night after night? – Alex A Sep 11 '17 at 14:23
  • The phenomenon of testimony of faith wiping out sins applies when going from disbeliever-to-believer status, not for when you are already a Muslim. For Muslims, you just repent. Repenting from sins sincerely erases them. Night after night, you can sincerely repent and ask Allah (ﷻ) to forgive all your sins, intentional and unintentional, and this would be acceptable. – Muslimah يا رب العالمين Sep 11 '17 at 15:59
  • Ok,I understand – Alex A Sep 11 '17 at 16:30
  • And if I want to ask God Almighty to forgive me I say stahfurila? – Alex A Sep 11 '17 at 16:38
