At MCAS, we recommend that you attend the Knowing Islam session(KIS) and complete the Beginners’ Course on Islam (BCI) and Let’s Pray 1 (LP1) before embracing Islam. Completion of these Foundation Courses (i.e. KIS, BCI and Let’s Pray 1) are highly encouraged for a fuller understanding of Islam and the practices of a Muslim.
If you are ready to embrace Islam, you may book an appointment for the Conversion Ceremony with the Converts’ Development Division (CDD).

During the conversion ceremony, you need to recite the Shahadah (Declaration of Faith) in the presence of the Registration officer and the two male Muslim witnesses. You need to express it clearly with conviction, and to internalise the meaning of the Shahadah.
Ideally the convert-to-be would have undergone the Knowing Islam Session (KIS), Beginner’s Course in Islam (BCI) & Solat (prayer) Tutorial (ST). It is designed to provide the opportunity for one to understand & appreciate Islam prior to becoming a Muslim.
You are required to bring along:
- Two (2) male Muslim adults as witnesses (preferably relatives and/or close friends above 21 years old who can guide the Convert)
- Three (3) passport sized photographs
- Convert’s NRIC (Singapore) or passport (Foreigner)
- Witnesses’ NRIC (Singapore) or passport (Foreigner)
Complete the Conversion Registration Form available from the CDD office on the day of the conversion ceremony.
Upon conversion, you will be issued with the Conversion Card and a gift set which includes a translation of the Quran, prayer compass, prayer mat, prayer garment (for sisters) and a prayer cap (for brothers).
