Two Parts to Shahaddah



There is no other God than God.

Simple.

Mohammed is a Messenger of God.

Is he?

Do Muslims worship him?

NO! He is among the best of men, but he is a man.

Who is this man?

I'll wish peace upon him, as I do with all the prophets.

Historian Michael H. Hart, who is NOT a Muslim wrote about Prohet Mohammed in, A Ranking of the Most Influential Persons in History. Please do take the time to inform yourself better on such an often discussed figure. How much do you really know? Understand?

Then, consider reading Karen Armstrong's Muhammad: A Prophet for Our Time. Again, she is NOT a Muslim. She is an aclaimed author. There is an excerpt from Chapter One. See what she has to say.

Eventually, you will have to answer whether or not Mohammed is a Messenger of God. You either figure it out now or on Judgement Day.

For me...

La illaha il Allah wa Muhammadar Rasullulah!
