Me and my wife both are hindu. We respect all religion but recently we got inclined towards islam religion. We have decided to accept islam religion and follow it. Nobody has forced us and we want to convert from hindu to muslim by our will. I want to know what is the process of conversion in india. Can we just go to any MASJID for conversion? I heard that Maulvi in masjid will provide a letter/certificate/affidavit after conversion that we have accepted islam. Is there any legal way of doing it in court? if yes, please explain what is the process and what documents will be required for that process.
Also, Will we both have to change our names in all of our documents and identity cards? OR we can continue using them with our hindu names. Is it compulsory to change names in all documents after conversion? It is a very time consuming task. What if we don’t change our names in our documents after conversion, will it create any problem or issue in future?
Please reply. serious replies only. no jokes no gyan no bhashan please.
