Shahada (Profession of Faith)

One of the reasons for the success of the expansion of Islam was the simplicity of its message, which is transmitted in the concept of Shahada:

There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger.”

These are the words to pronounce by anyone who intends to convert to Islam. Let us remember that the apostasy is severely punished in Islam.

Now I have just my dresses. I donated my possessions to my sons and a charitable trust. All belongs to Allah.” Sulaiman Al-Rajhi
