I am the eldest (23 years old) among two of my siblings (20 and 18 years old).

My parents had divorced and the custody has been granted to my mum by court 8 years ago. I have the biggest problem that is my mom (non-Muslim) is planning to marry to a Muslim.

The MAIN PROBLEM is since my siblings are still minor as their custody is still under my mom's, do my siblings need to follow her to converts into Islam even though they unwilling for the converting?

I do seriously need help here since this problem has been becoming a big conflict in the house.

Article 12(4) of the Federal Constitution says

"For the purposes of cl. (3) the religion of a person under the age of eighteen years shall be decided by his parent or guardian."

This means that your siblings are no longer minors and can decide their own religion.
Take care.

Personal views/opinions (non-legal)
1. Physical and legal custody of a minor ceases once attaining 18 years old (on the dot).
2. Including living expenses stopped unless stated otherwise in the Decree Nisi.
3. The 18 year old "adult" can choose his/her own religion or to stay with which parent.
4. There should be no conflict other then that for living expenses and future education.

5. You at 23, can file AFFIDAVITS IN COURT (if there is any action in the High Court (Family)), against your mother for trying to breakup the family unity.
6. You can even "CONTEST" against your mother's ill intentions (if any, at your own risk, that you may sour up relationship with your biological MOM).

Note (unverified sources)
7. A minor above 12 must recite some simple Islamic verses on conversion day.
8. A Muslim friend has taught my son to kick at their knee cap if bought before Islamic teachers. Roll on the ground and request for father, brothers and sister and be bought to a police station.
9. The Muslim friend also say, if in an airport, roll on the ground in front of Immigration Officers and struggle and request for Airport Police. Ask to see your father and siblings. (Since then, I have bought him to airport everytime I go Thailand to show which are Immigration officers and Airport Police).
10. It is VERY BAD for my son at 11 years old to know and do these actions. But HIS MUSLIM mother has forced the whole family against a 10 feet thick and 100 feet high concrete WALL.

This advice is not accurate, as there is no summons in Court.

As my mother has both our identity cards (photostat), if she converts us into Muslim without our consent, will the registrar approve the conversation to Islamic?

My friend (above age of majority) has been converted to Muslim by her father by force and without her consent.

Don't listen to rumours.
Every case is different.
