According to the Quran, the only Shahadah supportable is ‘La ilaha illa Allah’ (There is no god except Allah) or ‘La ilaha illa huwa’ (There is no Lord except He). This is the testimony that Allah Himself takes. This is the testimony that the angels also take and those taken by ‘people of understanding/knowledge’
[3:18] Allah bears witness that there is no god except He (Arabic: La ilaha illa huwa), as do the angels, and those with knowledge, upholding justice. There is no god except He (La ilaha illa huwa), the Noble, the Wise.
The true Shahadah has been distorted. Millions of Muslims have adopted a distorted version, and insist upon mentioning the name of Muhammad besides the name of Allah.
However, the Quran’s great criterion in 39:45 stamps such Muslims as disbelievers:
[39:45] “When Allah ALONE is mentioned, the hearts of those who do disbelieve in the Hereafter shrink with aversion, but when others are mentioned with Him, they become satisfied.”
Extensive research has been conducted into this criterion with a startling conclusion:
Those who do not uphold the True Shahadah of the Quran as dictated in 3:18 are forbidden by Allah from uttering the correct Shahadah. They simply cannot say: “Ash-hadu Al La ilaha illa Allah ” by itself, without mentioning the name of Muhammad.
Challenge them to say: “Ash-hadu Al La ilaha illa Allah.” They can never say it. They prefer to say the wrong shahadah by adding “Muhammad-ur-rasool-Allah” just as the shi’ite sect would add “Ali-un-wali-Allah” and other sects would add the names of their respective Imams.
The practices of Islam came down from the time of Abraham. Moses, Jesus and all other prophets preached the same religion. One Message, One Allah.
Since this is the religion of Abraham, the ONLY creed must be ” La ilaha illa Allah (there is no god except the One Allah)”. Muhammad did not exist on earth before Abraham.
[2:130] AND WHO WOULD ABANDON THE CREED OF ABRAHAM EXCEPT ONE WHO FOOLS HIMSELF? We have selected him in this world, and in the Hereafter he is of the righteous.
Submission (Islam): Abraham’s Religion
[2:135] And they said: “Be Jewish or Christians so that you may be guided!” Say: “No, rather THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, MONOTHEISM; for he was not of the polytheists.”
[3:95] Say: “Allah bears truth. FOLLOW THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, MONOTHEISM, and he was not of the polytheists.”
Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam
[4:125] And who is better in the system (Deen) than the one who submits himself to Allah, and he is a good doer, and HE FOLLOWS THE CREED OF ABRAHAM IN MONOTHEISM? And Allah took Abraham as a friend.
[6:161] Say: “My Lord has guided me to a straight path, an upright system (Deen), THE CREED OF ABRAHAM THE MONOTHEIST; he was not of the polytheists.”
[12:37-38] He said: “No provision of food will come to you, except that I would have informed you both about its interpretation before it comes to you. That is from what my Lord has taught me. I have just left the creed of a people who do not believe in Allah, and they are rejecting the Hereafter. AND I HAVE FOLLOWED THE CREED OF MY FATHERS ABRAHAM, and Isaac, and Jacob. It was not for us to set up partners with Allah at all. That is the blessings of Allah over us and over the people, but most of the people are not thankful.”
Muhammad: A Follower of Abraham
[16:123] Then We inspired to you: “YOU SHALL FOLLOW THE CREED OF ABRAHAM, MONOTHEISM, and he was not of the polytheists.”
Abraham: Original Messenger of Islam
[22:78] And strive in the cause of Allah its truly deserved striving. He is the One who has chosen you, and He has made no hardship for you in the system, THE CREED OF YOUR FATHER ABRAHAM; He is the One who named you ‘those who have submitted (Muslimeen)’ from before and in this. So let the messenger be witness over you and you be witness over the people. So hold the Salat and contribute towards purification and hold tight to Allah, He is your patron. What an excellent Patron, and what an excellent Supporter.
There is no greater blasphemy than distorting the Quran to idolize the prophet Muhammad against his will. Verse 19 of Sura “Muhammad” states:
La ilaha illa Allah:
[47:19] So know that there is no god besides Allah (La ilaha illa Allah’), and ask forgiveness of your sins and also for the believing males and the believing females. And Allah knows your movements and your place of rest.
Yet another verse states the shahadah:
[37:35-36] When it was said to them: “There is no god except Allah (La ilaha illa Allah’),” they would be arrogant. And they would say: “Shall we leave our Gods because of a crazy poet?”
Now let’s take a look at these verses from sura 39, Al-Zumar (The Throngs):
A PROFOUND QUESTION
Finally, let’s answer a question- a profound one, for it comes from the Lord of the Universe. Here it is:
[39:36] Is Allah not enough for His servant? And they frighten you with others besides Him. And whoever Allah sends astray, then for him there will be no guide.
If your answered is ‘Yes’ to the question above then you accept that all you need is Allah, and Allah Alone. Your worship is to be devoted absolutely to Allah alone, for He alone is worthy of worship, He alone is worthy of all praise and He has no partners, and Yes, indeed, He is sufficient for His servants.
It’s not that complicated after all, is it? So if you agree to submit yourself to Allah alone, and not take up powerless idols beside Him such as Muhammad, Ali, Jesus, Moses… then you are a Muslim. A submitter to the Lord of the Universe. Welcome to Submission (ISLAM) PEACE !
