Phrase

لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ اللهِ (lā ʾilāha ʾillā llāhu muḥammadun rasūlu llāhi)

  1. (Islam) There is no god but God; Muhammad is the messenger of God.

Usage notes

  • This phrase, called the shahada, or Muslim creed, is the declaration of belief in the oneness of God and in Muhammad as His messenger. Recitation of the shahada is considered one of the five pillars of Islam by Sunni Muslims. By sincerely stating the shahada aloud before two witnesses, one is considered to have converted to Islam.
