the meaning aslia

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: The true meaning of "La ilaha illallah", some comments on the articles of D. Pipes

Submitted by sharfudin (Malaysia), Jan 28, 2013 at 07:08

the meaning that shababah r.a had been thought is

La - deny everything that is Batil (not Haq or has a time limit)

Ilaha illallah - only Allah is one ( Ilah is wahid from surah wa ilah ukum ila huwahid 2:163)

this knowledge is the knowledge that Nabi Muhammad S.A.W derived for 23 years (13 years alone and 10 years with sahabah) .its an ocean of knowledge. thus the translation will not give us the knowledge, so how does moses, jesus, abraham, nuh and all the 124000 prophets transmit the knowledge of La ilaha Ilallah. so translation not enough, the knowledge is important. go seek the knowledge from the people who can transmit these knowledge, not from ulamas or alim. as Allah says, seek knowledge from cradle to the grave. ( this not imply to knowledge of human being, but knowledge of wisdom from the kalimah of la ilaha ilallah.

may Allah protect me from fitnah.

wassalam.
