Quora Answer: Can I Come Back to Islam after Leaving It?

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ 

The following is my answer to a Quora question: “I left Islam, but I want to come back to it.  What should I do? 

You have to retake the shahadah.  This involves two Muslim witnesses.  It may be in a formal, or informal setting.  After this, you are Muslim.  Then, you have to tawbah.  This means, after retaking the shahadah, go home, perform ghusl, which involves washing yourself, top to bottom, right to left.  Thereafter, perform two raka’at of swalah at-tawbah.
