Tafseer of Laa ilaaha illallaah - 1

The Status of the Declaration of Faith  - لا اله الاالله

It is a declaration (kalimah) that the Muslims proclaim in their daily lives; in their call to Prayer (adhaan), their call to establishing the Prayer (‘iqaamah), their sermons and their speeches. It is: “A declaration upon which the heavens and the earth are established, and for which the whole of the creation was created, and for which Allaah sent Messengers, revealed Books, and prescribed Divine Laws. Because of it the Scales and the Registers were set-up, as were Paradise and Hellfire.

Due to it creation was divided into Believers and unbelievers; righteous and wicked. It is the root cause for [there being] creation, command, rewards and punishments. It is the right for which the creation was created and about it and its rights will they be questioned and brought to account. Because of it there is punishment and reward; due to it the direction of Prayer (qiblah) was set-up; upon it rests the very foundation of the Religion; and because of it swords are drawn for striving and fighting (jihaad). It is the Right of Allaah over His slaves; the Declaration (kalimah) of Islaam; and the key to Paradise; about it both the earlier and later people will be questioned.

Indeed, no person will stand before Allaah without being asked two questions: What did you worship? And how did you respond to the Messengers? The reply to the first is by realization of  لا اله الاالله’; knowing it, affirming it, and acting by it. The reply to the second is by realization that Muhammadصلّى اللَّهُ عليه وسلّم   is the Messenger of Allaah; knowing it, complying with it, and being obedient to it."

(Zaadul-Ma’aad (1/34) of Imaam Ibn al-Qayyim)

Please read the transcriptions of Tafseer of  ‘لا اله الاالله’ which is obligatory upon every Muslim to know and understand. I will be uploading them in parts, as I finish them Insha-Allaah.
