Shahadah

(The Declaration of Faith)

 

 

The Shahadah or Kalimat ash-Shahadah is the Muslim creed which declares belief in:

  • The Oneness of God
  • The acceptance of Muhammad (pbuh) as God's final Messenger

 

A true belief in and declaration of the Shahdah is the basic requirement for all Muslims and any non-Muslims wishing to convert to Islam do so through the public declaration of the creed.

 

Say: La illaha illal-Lah, Muhammadur rasullulah

Translation: There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger

The Shahadah cannot be found in the Qur'an but is actually derived from the Hadiths
