Adhaan in the ears of a reverted person.

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:


I know that when a child is born adhaan is given in his/ her ears. But when someone accepts islam, should adhaan be also given in his / her ears. Please advise.

Jazak allah khair.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Wa Alaykum as Salam wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh

To enter and accept Islam as one’s way of life is a condition of one’s heart, and a covenant between an individual and The Lord Most High.  The only thing one needs to do if one wishes to officially enter the fold of Islam is to declare the declaration of faith, and one will be deemed a legal muslim in the Sight of Shariah Law and the believers.

Other than the declaration of faith, there is no formal or other procedure to officially enter the fold of Islam and be recognized as a ‘muslim’. 

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.   Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brothers and sincere well wishers in Islam,
