Without telling my parents or my community, I want to convert to Judaism. How can I do that? What is the process?

Also, just to know and not that it will change anything about my decision: what is more prevalent islamophobia or anti-semitism?

So my advice to you would be the same advice I would give a Jew contemplating conversion to another faith. Before you reject your own heritage and path to God for a Jewish one, take the time to explore your own. Start practising Islamic rituals, study Islamic sacred text and try to situate yourself within your own rich religious traditions.
If after all that you still find yourself irresistibly drawn towards Judaism, it is your right to follow that path. Just try to understand your parents’ likely reaction and make every effort to treat them with the utmost respect.

Because Judaism is the first Abrahamic religion and God makes no mistakes. There was no sense in having subsequent religions.

I have been resistant to Islam since as long as I can remember. There's no point now.

If that is your reasoning, I think you should dwell on it more. You seem very closed-minded and unwilling to research other options, so I doubt you'll listen to this piece of advice. Good luck with that mate.

Well I agree but if you read their scripture, you'll see that Abraham himself has foretold of a messenger to arrive.

Have you spoken to a rabbi, or even just a Jewish friend? Ideally, you need to do a lot of research - what denomination do you want to convert into, for example? Are you ready to make the commitment to conversion if you can't be open about it with those closest to you? Do you know what you're getting yourself into - conversion can take years!

Have a look here https://www.myjewishlearning.com/, and here https://www.chabad.org/, and learn more before you even commit to speaking to a rabbi - saying "Judaism is the first Abrahamic religion and God makes no mistakes" doesn't sound like a deep commitment to Jewish identity, faith, and culture to me, although I may be wrong. And many Jews will argue for hours about whether G-d has made mistakes

Good luck, and I hope you find the path you want to go down, Baruch Hashem

If your only reasoning is that Judaism is the first Abrahamic religion and that's why Judaism is the choice for you, I feel you need to research a bit more. I actually go to a Jewish school so, although I am not Jewish, I know a great deal about and respect the religion greatly. I know about all the festivals, the history of the religion, religious views, etc. Judaism has a lot of similarities with Islam actually and most of the basic principles are the same so if you don't even agree with those aspects in Islam, why would you change your mind and feel differently if it's Judaism? That's what I don't understand about your situation. I have nothing against Judaism, I think it's a fascinating religion but I don't understand why you want to convert to it from Islam when their beliefs are really similar.

Really? Why? So no one can ever become a Jew unless they have Jewish family? Or only Muslims? Why?

Really? Why is that? Can Christians become Jews? Or you have to be born Jew to become Jew?

if you're going that route, Abraham believed in prophets before him too. You should just search for the oldest religion. Plus why does having subsequent religions mean mistakes are being made? Sure it seems safest to pick judaism, because islam and christianity support it as an older correct message, but as someone else said, both judaism and christianity also mention to a final messenger
