    A person wants to become Muslim. Does he need to take a bath before becoming a Muslim?

    Answer By Ustadh Haroon Hanif

    No, taking a bath is not a requirement for becoming Muslim. The condition for becoming Muslim is to utter the two testimonies of faith. As long as these have been uttered in the presence of two Muslim witnesses, we consider that person a Muslim whether or not he has taking a bath. However, once that person has become Muslim, he is encouraged to take a bath.
