The lajnah were asked:


“If there is a woman who wants to embrace Islam, is it permissible for a man to dictate the Shahadah (Testimony of Faith) to her or should it be a woman who does so?”


“There is no problem with dictating Shahadah to a woman who wants to become a Muslim if this is performed by a man or a woman. Yet, it is preferable if it is a woman who does so, so that the new Muslim woman can learn all that she needs to know about Islam with complete ease.”

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.
