Ash hadu alla ilaha illallahu
Wahdahu la sharika lahu
Wa ash hadu anna Muhammadan
Abduhu wa Rasuluhu
I gave evidence that there is no god but Allah. He is One. He has no partner. I also give evidence that Muhammad (Sm) is His servant and Apostle.
Allah, the almighty is our Creator, Protector and Sustainer. He is very kind. He bestowed upon us manifold bounties. The light, air, fire, water all these are His bounties. We are living on his mercy. He gives us food, happiness and peace. We accept His mercy upon us with gratitude. We are grateful to Him. We are His servants. We worship Him. We given evidence of our faith and belief in him through Kalima Shahadat. We sincerely accept the truth that only He deserves all adorations. Kalima means sentence and Shahadat means to give evidence. Hence, Kalima Shahadat means to give evidence of faith and belief in Allah.
Kalmia Sahadat has two main parts.
Declaration of Tawhid with : “Ash hadu alla ilaha illallahu wahdahu la sharika lahu.”
The acceptance of the Prophethood (Risalat) and to declare it with “wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan Abduhu wa rasuluhu”. We did not know Allah. The Prophets made Allah acquainted with us. They have shown us the path of His pleasure. They nhave exposed and explained before us His message and taught us how to worship Him. They have brought into paractise the rules and regulations of Allah and given us the practical training. Hazrat Muhammad (Sm) was a Prophet as will as a beloved servant of Allah. He always worshiped Allah. All the prtevious Prophets used to worship Allah. But people sometimes made them incarnations out of their ignorance committing Shirk or partnership with Allah. We shall know the meaning and significance of Kalima Shahadat, having firm belief in it and lead our lives accordingly.
