You mention the Shadaha several times in your posts. What exactly does it entail? Like I said in my other post, I'm no expert, but I recall reading that the "testimony of faith" was only saying one sentence -- referring to one's belief that Allah is One and the Only One, or something like that. Please do correct me if I'm wrong.

By the way, when referring to a Christian or Jewish version of Taqiyya, why don't you be more specific. Can you quote from the scriptures or other writings? I never heard of such law in either, except maybe that a lie is forgivable if it is said to save onesself from murder or execution.
