Respected Sir,

In continuation, Kalmah, the foundation lesson La Ilaha Illallah of Muhammad (s.a.s.) needs to be understood and perceived through Surah Ikhlas, and the word Ahad appears twice in it; first in Hu Allahu Ahad and secondly in Walam Yakullahu Kufhoowan Ahad. If at all the meaning of Ahad is Wahid (one, single) in first case then what about in respect of second case that 'any other' (Koyi) Wahid cannot compete with the first case Wahid, then who is that any other Wahid who cannot compete with. Whether there are two in competition, number one is Allah and second one is remained 'unknown' till date, if so then who is that personality in competition with mighty powered personality of the sky? Hence, the kind attention is requested to understand, "what is the difference in meaning between both the Ahad's?" It is very much necessary to understand this difference.

Hazrat Umar said "Abubakar made 'Jihad for Zakat' on this ground Allah has opened my mind and heart", that means 'the meaning of Jihad is total massacre because Yamanees were totally massacred', Muslims killed and raped the Muhammadans. This act, 'the murder and extortion' was accepted as proper and legal. Then the total massacres were carried out, the wombs of pregnant women were slit and babies throat were cut, women were raped, in this way those Musalmans made tyranny on Muhammadans.

Thank you.

With regards,
