Assalamu alaikum. I hope this email finds you to be doing well. I would like to know what the process is to revert to Islam. What steps need to be taken? Will I need to take classes to teach me the prayers and how to read in Arabic? Is the knowledge of how to read Arabic necessary or vital to the reversion? What is necessary to allow me to declare myself, and be recognized as, a Muslim woman? How long is the process?
I hope to hear from you soon.
