THE MEANING OF THE CREEDAL STATEMENT
It is required of every person who is sane, has reached puberty (as defined in Islam) and has heard the Creedal Statement of Islam to become Muslim immediately upon hearing the Creedal Statement of Islam. He is required to remain Muslim and not leave Islam. If he does not become Muslim before he dies, or if he leaves Islam (becomes a non-Muslim) he will suffer forever in Hell. It is further required that the Muslim does everything he is required to do by Allah and stays away from the things Allah forbid him to do.
