حبسم الله الرحمن الريم

[Qur'an surah 47.Muhammad :19] Know, therefore, that there is no god but ALLAH, and ask forgiveness for thy fault, and for the men and women who believe: for ALLAH knows how ye move about and
how ye dwell in your homes.

The word shahādah (شِهادة) is a noun stemming from the verb syahida or shahada (شَهَدَ) , meaning "he observed, witnessed, or testified"; when used in legal terms, shahādah is a testimony to the occurrence of events, such as debt, adultery, or divorce. The shahādah can also be expressed in the dual form shahādatān (شِهادَتانْ, lit. "two testimonials"), which refers to the dual act of observing or seeing and then the declaration of the observation.The person giving the testimony is called a shāhid (شاهِد), with the stress on the first syllable. The two acts in Islam are observing or perceiving that there is no god but ALLAH and testifying or witnessing that Muhammad is the messenger of God. In a third meaning, shihādah or more commonly istishhād (إسْتِشْهادْ), means "martyrdom", the shahīd (شَهيد) pronounced with stress on the last syllable ("martyr") demonstrating the ultimate expression of faith, the point is the recognition that there is no true god except ALLAH ta'ala, there is no god but ALLAH alone.
