Foundation Seminar - La-ilaaha-illallah

There are no other words more powerful and more profound in the entire universe than the shahadah - la-ilaaha-illallah - there is none to be worshipped except Allah. The entire humankind has been created for this purpose. The shahadah is ingrained in every human being as well as in every other living and non-living creation around us. Yet because of the special status of man Allah sent Prophets and Messengers to remind mankind about this purpose and to inform that success and happiness depend on how truly one lives by it.

It is unfortunate today that people, including Muslims, have lost track of this purpose. Instead of the servitude and the worship of Allah they have become so engaged in worldly pursuits that these pursuits themselves have become the purpose of their life. On the other hand many have misunderstood the shahadah like the previous nations did and ended up violating the rights of Allah by violating the rights of the shahadah.

Without a doubt the most powerful and profound words require a deep understanding. A very superficial understanding of the shahadah is all that many of us possess. This is reflected in our thinking (mind), our feelings (spirit) and in our actions (body). How do we then acquire a deep understanding? The only way is through the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophets and Messengers. This is the way Allah chose to teach people. This unique ground-breaking seminar by Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi deals with those profound aspects of the shahadah that many are unaware of.
