There is no exam per say. It is usually a brief talk followed by the potential convert(s) repeating the Shahadatain (first pillar of Islam). It's preferred that the potential converts learn it by heart before showing up. This can be done at the mufti's office or at any mosque with an officially appointed Imam.
The office of the mufti is where the certificate of conversion is issued and at the mosque, you'll learn how to apply for one and what is required.

  • Speak to you local Tunisian embassy they will give you a form and make your appointment.
  • You and a Muslim advocate (my father in law for me) will go to your meeting
  • You will recite Fatiha a small sura and he will ask about prayers wudu and then hold you hand for shahada
  • You then get a certificate and take the esculator on the right straight to heaven.

for my husband Trulymadlydeeply , thanks rabah ^^
Rabah and lamia, there is no requirement for you lamia to become a Muslim, please be careful about what you think and do, if you want to get married to a Tunisian you do not have convert/revert to become a Muslim. In answer to your original question why didn't the Tunisian Muslim cleric answer your questions?

salaam. maybe i misunderstand this, but for a man , he can marry a believer. there is nothing that requires she needs to be musulman. she can be catholic, cristian, buddhist etc ... a woman on the other hand, needs to marry a musulman, tht means any muslim woman wanna marry etranger, the man must convert to Islam.

I have done this and its all in the articles

You have to book he appointment via the embassy and they set it up with the ministry of religion in Tunis.

I believe a see a bit of confusion regarding Muslim men marrying women from other faiths. Quoran(2:221) talks about وَلَا تَنكِحُوا۟ ٱلْمُشْرِكَٰتِ حَتَّىٰ يُؤْمِنَّ "do not marry polytheistic women until they believe...". Polytheistic women are ones who believe in multiple deities and those are the ones Muslim men are not allowed to marry. Happy mid- Ramadan's eve to all.
