Importance of Shahada

Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)
Bismillah e rahmani raheem (In the name of Allah (swt) {God}, Most Gracious, Most Merciful)

Ok, in my previous post I described the meaning of Shahada, now it is time to illustrate the importance of Shahada.

Islam is the only religion that solely depends on Shahada

I testify there is no God, but Allah (SWT) ( الله سُبْحَانَهُ وتَعَالَى), He has no partners.

By believing and saying this is you are sincerely acknowledging that Allah (swt) is the sole Creator of all, and the Supreme Authority over everything and everyone in the universe.

You believe with your soul, body, mind, and heart to:

  • Trust Allah (swt) — Everything happens for good by Will of (Allah (swt)
  • Believe in Allah (swt) — He has the Power over everything in the world, between Heaven and Earth, everything Known and Unknown, everything that is Seen and Unseen
  • Obey Allah (swt) — Five Pillars of Islam, Living by the word of Allah (swt) that is written in Qur’an, following Hadiths of Muhammed (SAW), and being part of Ummah
  • Worship Allah (swt) — Praying Qur’an, Salah, Dua, and etc only to Allah (swt) and no one else. Acting/behaving within Islam

I testify Muhammed (SAW) (صلى الله عليه وسلم‎ ) is His last Messenger and Prophet. 

You believe with your soul, body, mind, and heart to:

  • Belief in the Prophethood of Muhammad (SAW) (Peace and blessings be upon him)
  • Guidance brought by him and contained in his Sunnah (traditions of his sayings and actions),
  • Intention to follow his guidance faithfully.
  • Acknowledging and accepting Muhammad (SAW) (Peace and blessings be upon him) was also a human being, a man with feelings and emotions, who ate, drank and slept, and was born and died, like other men.
  • He had a pure and upright nature, extraordinary righteousness, and an unwavering faith in Allah (SWT) and commitment to Islam, but he was not divine.
  • Muslims do not pray to him, not even as an intercessor, and Muslims abhor the terms “Mohammedan” and “Mohammedanism”

Muslim’s Duty to Allah (swt)

  • Be an exemplary example of good behavior towards all, Muslims and non Muslims alike
  • Act and dress modestly (all Muslims – men and women)
  • Dawah-Spread good through your positive behavior and example
  • Appreciate- Thank Allah (swt) frequently and help people who are in need, regardless of their beliefs

    Love this MashAllah I like how you addressed Muhammadism, and how it is irrelevant to Islam And our Prophet (SAW).

        Sister they updated the page of so called Mohammadian. Now it shows how it used to illustrate and few times (2 times I saw) they wrote this phrase is insult to Islam and its followers. Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله) that much it worked. Jazaka’Allah Khair ( جزاك اللهُ خيراً)

        There are parts that so called explain the term (name) but because they are linked to literature and history aspect of it, they are not going to remove it (of course). Though they have explained this term is degrading to Muslims. The actual term used is Islam.

        So now what I have been doing lately and if you too can also put into practice and spread the word, is that wherever I see so called Muhammadian or something like that, I contact them and inform them. Alhumdulillah ( الحمد لله) one individual changed and apologized (so far I have come across 1 blog). Jazaka’Allah Khair ( جزاك اللهُ خيراً)

        MashAllah sister it’s so hard to address these people but you are an inspiration you should do a blog on it too to create awareness I have quoted many people on Pinterest who share that 99.9% of muslims are terrorist and I try to let the Qur-an do the talking it’s good to try to combat it but there is only so much people will come to terms with because of hate.): it’s sad may Allah guide them and grant you the highest level of Jannah for your struggle, Ameen.
