Have you ever heard about Shahada?

Every Muslim knows what is ment by Shahada. Shahada is the basic statement when one convert to Islamfrom any other religion.

What is the meaning of Shahada?

It means that no God other than Allah, And Muhammad (SAW) is his messenger. In other words with the same meaning we should say that Shahada means “The oneness of God, and the acceptance of Muhammad as his prophet”. To be a Muslim, you have to recite it not only with your tongue, but also with your heart. When you recite Shahada you confess that your only God is Allah, prophet Muhammad (SAW) is his messenger, and you will obey the rules of Allah. We also have to know that there are 5 pillars of Isalm, and Shahada is the first and the most important one of them. Everyone needs to convert to Islam has to recite it 3 times, with understsnding the meaning of it to be accepted from Allah. They have to recite it in Arabic language and have to say “Ashahu an la Ellah ella Allah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadun Rasulu Allah”.

“أشهد أن لا إله إلا االله ، وأشهد أن محمداً رسول االله” 

As we said before, to make sure your Islam, you have to believe in these 2 parts of Shahada, the first which is the only God is Allah, and the second part that is the prophethood of Muhammad (SAW). These 2 phrases are the core of Tawheed. These 2 phrases are not present in the Quran but are indifferent Hadiths.

Why is Shahadah important?

As we said before Shahada is the most important pillar of the 5 pillars of Islam, and it is the dividing line between Iman and Kufr. So, reciting this phrase is very important for all Muslims to renew the covenant with Allah, and it also is important for non-Muslims to convert to Islam and recite this phrase. Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said that “The best remembrance of Allah is to say Lailaha ella Allah” This means how great it is! Shahada is also remembrance of Allah that has a reward from him. Allah loves his believers to recite it, ask him for anything they need, and remember him at all times. In another Hadith, prophet Muhammad (SAW) said that “if any Muslim ended his\ her life with la ilaha illa Allah, he\she will enter paradise”. Our aim as Muslims is to get the reward from Allah and to enter his paradise. We can’t enter this Jannah without the obedience to God, and without “Kalemat al Tawheed”. It is also important to say that Jannah is not easy but also is not impossible, if you obey the rules of Allah, believe in him, his books, his angels, and his messengers, you will get Allah’s satisfaction. Don’t give up reciting Shahada, and don’t give up remembrance of Allah. And always remember that Allah is your only army and your only force who will help you, give you what you need and more than you need.
