Shahāda (2): Muḥammad is the Messenger of Allah
Part 2 of 2, is the translation of chapter 7 from Part 1 (The Foundations of Deen and its Fundamental Maxims) of Kitāb at-Tawḥeed: A’sās al-Islām wa Ḥaqeeqat-at-Tawḥeed, by Professor Muḥammad bin Abdallah al-Mas’ari. The latter half of the testimony of faith, ash-Shahāda, is outlined.
This part of the proclamation relates to Muḥammad (peace and blessings be upon him) being the conveyer of Allah’s truth and words, in a manner that is completely free of anything missing or added, as well as any form of error, lie or forgetfulness. He (peace be upon him) is the best leader, the exemplar, the ideal to be followed. Neither does he speak of his own desire nor does he utter except that which is true.
Indeed, Allah has set out some definitive parameters regarding obedience to the Prophet Muḥammad (peace be upon him), which are outlined also.Tawheed-Part-1-ch7-Feb17.pdf (702 downloads)
