Sincerity in One’s Shahadah

Posted on July 9, 2010 by


It is reported from Zayd b. Arqam (radhi allahu anhu) that the Messenger of Allah (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘Whoever sincerly says La ilaha illa Allah will enter Paradise.’ He (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) was asked: ‘What is sincerity?’ He (sallahu alayhi wa sallam) said: ‘That it restrains one from that which Allah has forbidden.’

(p 2o of “The Testimony of Faith” by Imam ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin al-Husayni)
