I want to convert to Islam, i recognise its teachings. I come from a catholic family background but I do not identify with its teachings the same way I identify with Islam. I have told my parents that I want to convert and they do not want me to convert this has brought up many arguments what should I do? Additionally I want to do my shahada in the coming week
You must not delay this till next week as only Allah knows how long is left for us on this earth! You must revert to Islam immediately by saying the testimony of faith as explained to you in the links below. You must go to your local Islamic center where you can go and announce your shahadah and get an official certificate of you becoming a Muslim in front of witnesses so you have a support system and can practice Islam freely.
