it is the phrase of piety; it is the firm rope, and it is the phrase which Hazrat Ibrahim made lasting among his offspring: As the Holy Quran says: “And He made it a word lasting among his offspring, that they may turn back (to repent to Allah).” (43:28) .He has no Partner, and He cannot be compared with any other thing and if someone does this than it’s called the Shirk, which Allah (S.W.T) doesn’t like. Everything which is in this Universe is under His Control, and works according to His Command: “Such is Allâh, your Lord! Lâ ilâha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He), the Creator of all things. So worship Him (Alone), and He is the Wakîl (Trustee, Disposer of affairs, Guardian, etc.) over all things.” (6: 102)As the Holy Quran says: “(And this is in order) that the hearts of those who disbelieve in the Hereafter may incline to such (deceit), and that they may remain pleased with it, and that they may commit what they are committing (all kinds of sins and evil deeds, etc.)” (6:113) The second part of the Shahadah is the declaration that Muhammad (S.A.W) is the Messenger of Allah. He was the one who brought the Quran to us. Muslims are required to obey the Prophet (S.A.W) and follow his examples without any hesitation. As Allah says in the Holy Quran: “Say (O Muhammad S.A.W to mankind): "If you (really) love Allah then follow me (i.e. accept Islamic Monotheism, follow the Qur’an and the Sunnah), Allah will love you and forgive
you of your sins. And Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” (3:31)Muslims are also required to honor and respect him, and as Allah commanded us to give him blessings and salutations. Whenever his name is mentioned we must say: ‘Sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam’. As Hazrat Bibi Aisha Siddique (R.A) said “His [Muhammad (S.A.W)] morals are the Quran.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari) Allah says in the Holy Quran: “Say (O Muhammad SAW): "Obey Allah and the Messenger (Muhammad SAW)." But if they turn away, then Allah does not like the disbelievers.” (3:32) So in order to become a Muslim we have to utter Shahadah by our tongue, by heart and by our actions that should confirm the meaning of Shahadah. Muslims believe that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was the last prophet and messenger of God. By way of clarification it should be stated immediately that in Islam the role of a prophet or a messenger is far more important than in Christianity. In Islam, a prophet or a messenger expresses the will of God for a nation or all humankind. The message delivered by him is bindingon those to whom it is sent and a rejection of him is a rejection of God. The work of a messenger, furthermore, change earlier religious laws and create a new religious community. The belief that the Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) is the last prophet and messenger of God therefore means that after him there will not arise any person who will be authorized by God to express his will for others in a binding way and/or institute a new religious direction by a new expression of the religious truth and forming a religious community around that expression.
