Shahada is a declaration of faith and trust that professes that there is only one God (Allah) and that Muhammad (PBUH) is God’s messenger. It is a set statement normally recited in Arabic: lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāhu muḥammadun rasūlu-llāh (لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله) “There is no god but God (and) Muhammad (PBUH) is the messenger of God.” It is essential to utter it to become a Muslim and to convert to Islam.
The True Islam is based on the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah. Sunnah is an Arabic word which means the words and actions or examples of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
