>"I testify that there is none worthy of worship except God and [I testify] that Muhammad is the messenger of God."
"worship except God" really?
Let us see what is says:
Ashhadu ana la Ilaha ila Allah wa ashhadu ana Muhammadan rasul Allah
I testify that there is no God but Allah and I testify that Muhammad the messenger of Allah
So where did you get this bogus translation? And where did you get this bogus "worship except God" from? This is one case where Pakistanis like you add the definite article to the text when there is no definite article
So much for your bogus claim that you can read Arabic
