“La ilaaha illallah Muhammad ur Rasulullah”
“There is no deity truly worthy of worship besides Allah Azzawajal and Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is His Messenger”
This is the statement of Tawheed – the Statement of the Oneness of Allah Almighty and without doubt the greatest statement that ever was or ever will be proclaimed!

The mission that was assigned to each of the Prophets ‘alayhimus salaam, was to convey to mankind the acknowledgement of the absolute Sovereignty of Allah Azzawajal, to render pure obedience to Him only & to fully reject worshipping (obedience, prostration, reverence, glorification, supplication, reliance,  hope, fear, love, submission) other than Allah Azzawajal.

“And verily, We have sent among every nation a Messenger (proclaiming): ‘Worship Allah (alone) and keep away from Taghut (false deities)…” (TMQ Surah an Nahl : 36)

For this statement, Allah Almighty created Paradise (Jannah) and Hell (Jahannum). The key to these destinations lies in the acceptance (Paradise) or rejection (Hell) of this testification.
This declaration (Shahadah – tain) has two parts, both of which must be testified to AND acted upon:

1) La ilaaha illallah (There is no god/ deity truly worthy of worship besides Allah)

“So know that La ilaaha illallah…” (TMQ Surah Muhammad : 19)

Seek the correct knowledge of Allah Azzawajal’s Unity: “Say: He is Allah, (the) One” (TMQ Surah al Ikhlaas : 1)

Through knowledge, we can learn & understand how Allah Azzawajal wants us to worship Him alone, without any associates and that all forms of worship (described above) are to be directed to Allah Azzawajal alone in a manner shown to us by His Messenger, Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam.

“And I created not the Jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (alone)” (TMQ Surah adh Dhariyaat : 56)

Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala has NO parents, partners or offspring!
Allah Azzawajal is the Sole Creator, Originator, Cherisher, Sustainer & Provider of bounty and security & none can share in that!
Sovereignty is for Allah alone and none can share in that!
Only Allah has the authority to legislate in all matters i.e. make things lawful (Halaal) and unlawful (Haraam) and none can share in that!
The perfect, most beautiful names and attributes belong to Allah alone, none of which can be attributed to His weak & dependent creation and neither can any attribute of His creation be attributed to Him!

“And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him” (TMQ Surah Al Ikhlaas : 4)

Contradiction of any of these leads to the worst crime possible!
SHIRK is the association of partners with Allah Azzawajal in any of the aspects mentioned above and if one dies without sincerely repenting and seeking Allah Azzawajal’s forgiveness, one is assured of the eternal doom of the Hellfire! Unfortunately today, many Muslims have strayed to shirk yet they feel satisfied that their mere declaration that Allah Azzawajal is One will suffice!

SURELY THIS IS A GREAT DELUSION!

“Verily Allah forgives not setting up partners (in worship) with Him, but He forgives whom he wills sins other than that, and whoever sets up partners in worship with Allah has indeed strayed far away” (TMQ Surah An Nisa : 116)

O you who have testified to the Oneness of Allah, Take heed!
Worship Allah as He wants you to worship Him and not in accordance with your fluctuating desires!

NO idol, NO Prophet, NO belief, NO saint, NO grave, NO ideology, NO political system, NO scholar, NO ruler, NO actor, NO musician, NO sportsperson, NO astrologer, NO clairvoyant, NO magician, NO material possessions – absolutely NONE of these or any other is to be glorified, practiced upon, revered or worshipped besides or along with Allah Almighty, the One free of all defects!
2) Muhammad ur Rasulullah (Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam is the Messenger of Allah)

Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, the slave of Allah Azzawajal, came to confirm the message of the Prophets ‘alayhimus salaam before him –  the message of Tawheed. This part means that we accept everything that he sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam has come with, we follow his immaculate example, we carry out his instructions & we refrain from that which he has ordered us to stay away from (including worshipping him).

“And whatsoever the Messenger (SAW) gives to you, take it and whatever he forbids you, abstain (from it). And fear Allah…” (TMQ Surah al Hashr : 7)

Take heed O Muslims! All our actions, intentions & deeds, if not carried out for the pleasure of Allah Azzawajal and in accordance with the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam are worthless!

Do we not guard our wealth & possessions with the utmost of security? What then should be our level of security for this great gift of Tawheed that Allah Azzawajal has bestowed upon humanity? A gift,  if squandered or lost can lead to eternal ruin & damnation!

While we strive day and night to increase our knowledge of this world, we pay little attention to the knowledge that Allah has directed us to out of His endless mercy – the knowledge of the Oneness of Allah Subhaanahu wa Ta’ala and the worthlessness of worshipping false deities!

O Muslims! O slaves of Allah, Lord of the Worlds!
Save yourselves and your families from a severe punishment! Nations before you, more powerful and wealthy than you can ever imagine, have been destroyed for rejecting fully or partly, the Oneness of Allah Almighty!
Know and understand that there is only ONE Lord, unto whom is due total submission & all worship!
Purify your belief, let this belief enter the heart and translate into action!
Shun & reject shirk totally in all its forms!

Remember & repeat this Du’aa of Muhammad sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam often:
“O Allah! I seek refuge with you from knowingly associating anything with you and ask forgiveness if I have unwittingly done so” (Musnad Ahmad)

“Say: My prayers, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, Lord of the Worlds” (TMQ Surah al An’ am : 162)
