Bearing witness that there is no god but Allah

Waraqaa ragaa The paper on this subject begins by discussing the significance of the statement “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” (There is no god but Allah). It emphasizes that when the first part, “Laa’ilaaha,” is uttered, it negates all false deities, affirming the exclusive worship of Allah alone. Similarly, when the second part, “illallaah,” is said, it affirms the true essence and sovereignty of Allah. The paper refers to instances from the Qur’an and Hadith to illustrate the importance of this statement.

It highlights the story of Prophet Ibrahim (Abraham), who declared his monotheistic beliefs, rejecting the false idols worshipped by his people. Despite facing opposition and persecution, he remained steadfast in his faith in Allah alone.

The paper discusses how Allah, being the ultimate authority, does not force anyone to believe in Him but rather provides guidance for those who seek it. It emphasizes that while Allah does not compel belief, He does reward those who choose to worship Him sincerely.

Furthermore, the paper explores the concept of Paradise (Jannah) and how the simple yet profound declaration of “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” can lead one to enter it. It quotes Wahab ibn Munabbih, a scholar, who explains that the utterance of this statement alone does not guarantee entry to Paradise; rather, it is the sincere belief and adherence to its principles that matter.

The paper also references various Hadiths that emphasize the importance of affirming the oneness of Allah and the consequences of disbelief. It underscores the significance of understanding and internalizing the meaning of “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” in one’s heart and actions.

In conclusion, the paper asserts that those who truly comprehend and live by the declaration of “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” are promised Paradise. It emphasizes the necessity of genuine faith and righteous deeds as the basis for attaining divine reward.

The statement is profound. It asserts the declaration “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” as the cornerstone of faith. Through this, one affirms the oneness of God with utmost sincerity. The phrase “Rabbiin malee haqaan kan gabbaramu hin jiru” means “There is none worthy of worship except Allah.” God Himself emphasizes: “No one should be worshipped besides Me.” The Prophet Muhammad (ص) further elucidated: “Whoever dies while claiming there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah will enter Paradise.” (Muslim)

Truly, faith entails sincere belief without doubt, hesitation, or reservation. It requires complete trust and submission to God’s will. God assures the believers: “Verily, those who believe in Our signs and submit to Our commandments with unwavering faith, reverence, and devotion will find solace in their Lord, and He will firmly establish them in their beliefs and hearts. They are indeed the ones who will inherit Paradise.” Therefore, it is imperative not to harbor any doubts or reservations, as hypocrisy lies in doubting the truth. The Prophet (ص) also emphasized: “Whoever’s heart is filled with faith in God’s truthfulness and sincerity in His worship will enter Paradise regardless of any doubts that may arise in their minds.” (Muslim)

Waraqaa ragaa Fudhachuu: “Alqabuul”:

Even though disbelief and hypocrisy may manifest in actions and statements, the essence of disbelief lies in the heart’s rejection of faith. Therefore, merely reciting statements of faith without true conviction and sincerity does not suffice. Those who outwardly express belief but inwardly reject the concept of monotheism are considered disbelievers. This rejection can stem from various reasons, such as arrogance, stubbornness, or a desire to avoid accountability. The disbelievers are those who knowingly reject the truth of “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah” despite understanding its significance.

Waraqaa ragaa Ajajamuu “Al-Inqiyaadu”:

Unity in belief entails both outward and inward adherence to monotheism. It involves not only verbal affirmation but also sincere conviction in the heart. One must submit to God’s commandments and avoid actions that contradict faith. God emphasizes that those who claim belief must fully submit to Him and sincerely adhere to His guidance in both their public and private lives.

The essence of hypocrisy lies in not genuinely practicing what one preaches. Therefore, someone who outwardly displays faith but inwardly lacks sincerity is considered a hypocrite. Regarding such individuals, God states that they do not truly believe in Him despite their outward display of faith.

Waraqaa ragaa Jaalala “Al-mahabbaah”:

Believers are like mirrors to one another. Through them, you can see and reflect upon your own actions. They are the ones who remind you of your duties and responsibilities. Believers are those who, in their actions, manifest the attributes of God, following the path laid down by God and His messenger, Jesus (peace be upon him). They uphold righteousness and strive to emulate the virtues exemplified by Jesus, while also guiding others toward the same path.

Qulqullummaa “Al-Ikhilaas”:

Truly accepting the Oneness of God is essential, as God Himself has forbidden associating partners with Him. The Prophet (peace be upon him) also emphasized the significance of sincerely acknowledging the declaration of faith “Laa Ilaaha Illallaah,” stating that whoever declares it sincerely will enter the sanctuary of God’s protection. Therefore, believers should strive to uphold this declaration in their hearts and actions, seeking refuge in God alone and avoiding any form of polytheism or association of partners with Him.
