Do you ever wish for a stronger sense of peace, guidance, and spiritual connection? The Second Kalma holds the key to unlocking these within yourself. Imagine feeling a strong sense of peace and purpose because of your belief in the Oneness of Allah (SWT) and the role of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).

What is the Second Kalma in Islam?

The Second Kalma, also known as the Kalma Shahadah, is a powerful statement of faith. It’s the key to becoming a Muslim and holds deep meaning for all believers worldwide.

اَشْهَدُ اَنْ لَّآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ وَحْدَہٗ لَاشَرِيْكَ لَہٗ وَاَشْهَدُ اَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهٗ وَرَسُولُہٗ‎

The Second Kalma’s origins lie in the early days of Islam, with Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) himself.

Benefits Based on Hadith

Narrated by Umar ibn al-Khattab (may Allah be pleased with him): Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said:

“مَنْ تَوَضَّأَ فَأَحْسَنَ الْوُضُوءَ، ثُمَّ قَالَ: أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ”، فُتِحَتْ لَهُ أَبْوَابُ الْجَنَّةِ الثَّمَانِيَةُ فَدَخَلَ مِنْ أَيِّهَا شَاءَ.
“Whoever performs ablution and perfects it, then says: ‘I testify that there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, He is Alone and has no partner, and I testify that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger,’ the eight gates of Paradise will be opened for him, and he may enter through any gate he wishes.”
Reference: Bulugh al-Maram, Hadith number 57

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said:

“بُنِيَ الإِسْلاَمُ عَلَى خَمْسٍ: شَهَادَةِ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَأَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللَّهِ، وَإِقَامِ الصَّلاَةِ، وَإِيتَاءِ الزَّكَاةِ، وَصِيَامِ رَمَضَانَ، وَحَجِّ الْبَيْتِ مَنِ اسْتَطَاعَ إِلَيْهِ سَبِيلاً”
“Islam is built on five (pillars): bearing witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, establishing regular prayer, paying Zakat, fasting Ramadan, and performing Hajj (pilgrimage) to the House (Ka’bah) if one can afford it.”
Reference: Sahih al-Bukhari, Book 2, Hadith 8

Benefits of Learning the 6 Kalmas in Islam

Narrated ‘Abdullah bin ‘Amr bin Al-‘As:

“‏ إِنَّ اللَّهَ سَيُخَلِّصُ رَجُلاً مِنْ أُمَّتِي عَلَى رُءُوسِ الْخَلاَئِقِ يَوْمَ الْقِيَامَةِ فَيَنْشُرُ عَلَيْهِ تِسْعَةً وَتِسْعِينَ سِجِلاًّ كُلُّ سِجِلٍّ مِثْلُ مَدِّ الْبَصَرِ ثُمَّ يَقُولُ أَتُنْكِرُ مِنْ هَذَا شَيْئًا أَظَلَمَكَ كَتَبَتِي الْحَافِظُونَ فَيَقُولُ لاَ يَا رَبِّ ‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ أَفَلَكَ عُذْرٌ فَيَقُولُ لاَ يَا رَبِّ ‏.‏ فَيَقُولُ بَلَى إِنَّ لَكَ عِنْدَنَا حَسَنَةً فَإِنَّهُ لاَ ظُلْمَ عَلَيْكَ الْيَوْمَ فَتَخْرُجُ بِطَاقَةٌ فِيهَا أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ وَأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ فَيَقُولُ احْضُرْ وَزْنَكَ فَيَقُولُ يَا رَبِّ مَا هَذِهِ الْبِطَاقَةُ مَعَ هَذِهِ السِّجِلاَّتِ فَقَالَ إِنَّكَ لاَ تُظْلَمُ ‏.‏ قَالَ فَتُوضَعُ السِّجِلاَّتُ فِي كِفَّةٍ وَالْبِطَاقَةُ فِي كِفَّةٍ فَطَاشَتِ السِّجِلاَّتُ وَثَقُلَتِ الْبِطَاقَةُ فَلاَ يَثْقُلُ مَعَ اسْمِ اللَّهِ شَيْءٌ ‏”
“Indeed Allah will distinguish a man from my Ummah before all of creation on the Day of Judgement. Ninety-nine scrolls will be laid out for him, each scroll is as far as the eye can see, then He will say: ‘Do you deny any of this? Have those who recorded this wronged you?’ He will say: ‘No, O Lord!’ He will say: Do you have an excuse?’ He will say: ‘No, O Lord!’ So He will say: ‘Rather you have a good deed with us, so you shall not be wronged today.” Then He will bring out a card (Bitaqah); on it will be: “I testify to La Ilaha Illallah, and I testify that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.” He will say: ‘Bring your scales.’ He will say: ‘O Lord! What good is this card next to these scrolls?’ He will say: ‘You shall not be wronged.’ He said: ‘The scrolls will be put on a pan (of the scale), and the card on (the other) pan: the scrolls will be light, and the card will be heavy, nothing is heavier than the Name of Allah.'”
Reference: Jami` at-Tirmidhi (Vol. 5, Book 38, Hadith 2639)
