Declaration of Faith (Shahaadah)

One of the five “pillars of Islam” is the declaration of faith, known as the shahaadah. Everything in the life of a Muslim rests upon a foundation of faith, and the shahaadah sums up the essence of the entire faith in one sentence. A person who understands this declaration, recites it with sincerity, and lives according to its teachings is a Muslim. It is what identifies or distinguishes a Muslim at the most fundamental level. Shahaadah is alternatively known as the “testimony of faith” or kalimah (the word or declaration).
The meaning in English is: I bear witness that there is no diety except Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
The shahaadah is usually recited in Arabic: Ash-hadu an laa ilaaha il Allah, wa ash-hadu anna Muhammad ar-Rasuul Allah.

Parents wishing to discuss any matter outside of these times should do so either before Madrassa starts in the morning or after Madrassa closes in the afternoon.
