The next step to becoming a Muslim is to declare that Muhammad ﷺ is His last messenger. Once these two points are accepted, we welcome you to Islam and you can declare the below testimony (shahada):
“I testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah; and I testify that Muhammad is His slave and last messenger.”
Prophet, peace be upon him, explained about belief: “The belief is to believe in Allah, His angels, His books, His Messengers, Judgment Day, and predestination.”

Those are the ones who have been true, and it is those who are the righteous.
