The Significance of Shahada (Kalima) "Ashhadu Alla Ilaha Illa Allah Wa Ashhadu Anna Muhammad Rasulu Allah" "I bear witness that there is no deity other than Allah(SWT)
and that Muhammad(SAW) is his servant and Messenger." These are the words (Kalimah) by which one declares his/her intention to become a Muslim. A newly reverted Muslim has to understand the meaning of this simple phrase and live and act in accordance to its principles to be guaranteed admission into heaven. Mere words are easily uttered, but Allah(SWT) considers what is in one�s heart and measures one�s deeds to judge between his creatures.In the Holy Quran, we are told that Hazrat Muhammad(SAW) was given the Quran and the Wisdom [2:151] to understand and explain it [14:4] to us. We are ordered to obey him(SAW) [3:32] and accept whatever he(SAW) gives us and abstain from whatever he(SAW) forbids us [24:7], because he only conveyed what was given to him by Allah(SWT) [53:3]. The believers should have no doubt that Allah(SWT) has kept His promise and protected his Word (revelations) from corruption. Indeed, the same early Muslims, who protected the Holy Quran, also had a hand in protecting the authentic Hadith of the Prophet(SAW). After all, they had been instructed by Allah(SWT) and His Messenger(SAW) to recite and memorize both the holy Quran and the explanation (wisdom) given to Rasulollah(SAW): And bear in mind that which is recited in your houses of the revelations of Allah and wisdom. Lo! Allah is Subtile, Aware.
(The Holy Quran, Al-Ahzab, 33:34)
We ask Allah(SWT) to bestow his mercy upon the sincere seekers of salvation; to guide them to the true path of Islam; to clarify for them the meaning of the Shahada; and to protect them from the whispers of the accursed Satan.
Our Lord! make of us Muslims, bowing to Thy (Will), and of our progeny a people Muslim, bowing to Thy (will); and show us our place for the celebration of (due) rites; and turn unto us (in Mercy); for Thou art the Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.
(The Holy Quran, Al-Baqara, 2:128)
