Kalima Tayyab is the testification of faith in Islam. A person cannot be considered to be a Muslim if he/she does not believe in the words of this Kalima. To become a Muslim, a person must say this Kalima with total belief. Another point about this Kalima is the name given to it, which is Tayyab.

 

Tayyab means Purity. By uttering this Kalima a person is purified from disbelief. An impure person becomes pure. This purification is spiritual.

 

A.There is no deity worthy of worship but Allah.

 

B. Muhammed is a messenger of Allah. Whoever say this with sincerity is to be considered as a Muslim. Whoever dies on this belief will enter paradise if his sins were forgiven by Allah.

O Allah! I seek refuge in You from that I should ascribe any partner with You knowingly. I seek Your forgiveness for the sin of which I have no knowledge. I repent from it.

I believe and I declare that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
