Is shahadah valid over the phone?

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

As-salāmu ‘alaykum wa-rahmatullāhi wa-barakātuh.

It is indeed great news that your daughter wants to become a Muslim. It is fine for your daughter to pronounce her shahadah over the phone. She should also consider contacting local religious authorities for further guidance.

And Allah Ta’āla Knows Best
