    • قُلۡ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ ٱللَّهُ ٱلصَّمَدُ لَمۡ يَلِدۡ وَلَمۡ يُولَدۡ وَلَمۡ يَكُن لَّهُ ۥ ڪُفُوًا أَحَدُۢ The Basic Message of Islam: TAWHIID - Attestation to the Oneness of God. LAA-ILAA-HA- IL-LALLAAH “ There is no other god except Allah” ©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
    • The Basic Message of Islam: TAWHIID - Attestation to the Oneness of God. LAA-ILAA-HA- IL-LALLAAH “ There is no other god except Allah” (Who is God?) - Purity of Faith in God: Say: He is Allah, the Absolute One; Allah is He, the Absolute and Eternal (Who is the most besought of all); He begets not, nor was He begotten; And there is none comparable to Him. ( Qur’an : al-Ikhlas: 112 ) ©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
    • Remember …………….
      • “ Ad-Deen al-Islam” : is only one – continuously revealed and it culminated perfectly, with the Last Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. :
      • وَمَن يَبۡتَغِ غَيۡرَ ٱلۡإِسۡلَـٰمِ دِينً۬ا
      • فَلَن يُقۡبَلَ مِنۡهُ
      • وَهُوَ فِى ٱلۡأَخِرَةِ مِنَ ٱلۡخَـٰسِرِينَ
      ©2006ZhulkefleeHjIsmail
    • Remember …………….
      • “ Ad-Deen al-Islam” : is only one – continuously revealed and it culminated perfectly, with the Last Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. :
      • “ For, if one goes in search of a religion other than “al-Islam” (self-surrender to Allah), it will never be accepted from him, and in the life to come he shall be among the lost.”
      • ( Qur’an: Aali- ‘Imran : 3:85 )
