THE ESSENTIAL STEP

God (Allah) states, "The only religion in the sight of God is Islam" (Qur'an 3:19). In another verse of The Holy Qur'an, God states, "If anyone desires a religion other than Islam, never will it be accepted of him, and in the hereafter, he will be in the ranks of those who have lost" (Qur'an 3:85).
The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said, "Whoever testifies that there in none worthy of being worshipped but God, who has no partner, and that Muhammad is God servant and Prophet; and that Isa (Christians claimed as "Jesus") is the servant of God, His prophet, and His word which He bestowed in Mariam and a spirit created by Him; and the heaven is true; and that the hellfire is true: God will eventually admit him into heaven, according to his deeds" (Shaheeh Al Bukhari).
As a moslem, a person must declare, that he or she believe there is no god (the other God), but Allah (God), and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. This declare is perhaps the bedrock belief in Islam. Without this declare a person is not considered a moslem, he or she still an unbeliever. This phrase is the essential step in a conversion to Islam, by someone who is not a born moslem. This creed will often be repeated by moslem constantly.
This declare will being a power (energy) for moslem to live and life in the world. This declare also give strong motivation for moslem to face to face with violence West Government in Palestine, Afghanistan, Iraq (include Abu Ghraib), and Guantanamo. Peoples know that West Government (USA, NATO, and Israel Government) had killed millions moslem peoples in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Palestine.
Moslem are prayer five times a day, include Friday prayer (one time a week), that make moslem have communicated with God. In his or her prayer, moslem face toward Mecca (for common direction) to worship God. In a verse of The Holy Qur'an (3:19) God states, "The only religion in the sight of God is Islam."

You claim, "This phrase is the essential step in a conversion to Islam, by someone who is not a born moslem."

However, the Prophet Muhammad said, "No babe is born but upon Fitra (as a Muslim). It is his parents who make him a Jew or a Christian or a Polytheist."

What this is saying to me is that each human being is innately capable of sensing and appreciating the divine, with or without religion.

Dear friend, Ginx.
The Prophet Muhammad is right, about the baby who born in fitra (as a moslem).
But when he/she grew up, his parents make him/her a jew, a christian, or a polytheist.
Then, he/she need to conversion to Islam again.
When I said, "someone who is not a born moslem," that is mean, "someone who is not a born moslem family."
Oh yea... Ginx, thanks for your comment. I hope we can be friend although have different opinion about something.
Thanks... again
