I have to be completely honest here, when you get somebody to testify to iman in Islam in 10 minutes, how sincere a believer will that person be? Having belief in a religion is a big thing and I think it cannot be achieved in 10 minutes.
That statement is subjective, for some people it may take longer, for others shorter. You may know you want to marry someone soon as you meet then, for others may take days, months, years. Some people may have already done a lot of soul searching before taking the Shahada, some may have had an awakening right there and there. So there are a lot more variables to consider before coming to your conclusion. There are many people who are born into Islam, live as Muslims since their birth, but they don’t always follow through with actions also. Taking the Shahada is step one, then the real faith follows.
I don’t think its unreasonable to give a shahdah in 10mins; actually, its not the best time made. Abubakar (RadiAllahu anhu) gave the shahadah in less than that, and khajida(RadiAllahu anha).
Asalaamu alaikum Sanah -
Dear Sister, if you watch the lecture workshop, you will see that the speaker does differentiate between someone giving shahada and then following that with actions and one who does not.
