This, then, is the only necessary step in becoming a Muslim. Personal, heart-felt conversions are replaced with an intellectual assent of the facts. But one need also adhere to the six major doctrines of Islam:
1. Monotheism. Belief in one god alone.
2. Angels. Belief that supernatural beings do the will of Allah.
3. Revelation. Belief in the Torah, the gospel (injil), and the Qur'an.
4. Prophets. Belief that Allah has sent prophets to reveal his will --- Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.
5. Judgment. Belief that Allah will judge all men and women.
6. Heaven and Hell. Belief that all men and women will spend eternity in either the splendor of Paradise or the eternal torture of hell.
