Professing the Two Shahadahs: In regards to the blasphemer who wants to embrace Islam, the belief is not accepted without one uttering the Two Testifications (Shahadahs). In addition, the Muslim is obligated to recite the Two Testifications (Shahadahs) in every prayer for validity of that prayer. The Two Testifications are: I testify that no one is God except Allâh and I testify that MuHammad is the Messenger of Allâh.
It is a duty to know the thirteen attributes of Allah God which are: Existence (al-Wujud), Oneness (al-Wahdaniyyah), Eternity (al-Qidam), Everlastingness (al-Baqâ'), Non-neediness of others (al-Qiyamu bin-Nafs), Non-resemblance to the creatures (al-mukhâlafatu lil-Hawâdith), Power (al-Qudrah), Will (al-Iradah), Knowledge (al-`Ilm), Life (al-Hayah), Hearing (as-sam`), Sight (al-BaSar), and Speech (al-Kalam).
It's important to know that Islam, the submission to one Creator, the belief that there's only ONE God that deserves to be worshiped, is the Religion of all the prophets.
Al-HâfiDh Ibnou Hajar said in his book FatHou lBârî: Al-Bayhaqiyy reported in al-'Asmâ 'wa Si-Sifât with a Haçan transmission chain according to Ibnu `Abbas that the disbelievers came to the prophet and he Say, tell us your Lord, whom you worship. Allâh revealed qul houwa lLâhou AHad until the end of the sūurat. The prophet said, "These are the attributes of my Lord` zza wa jall."
Allâh is the One Who is the Only God. He is the One Who is attributed with an eternal and everlasting Life (which is without soul, body, blood, bones or need for food). He is the One Who manages the world and does not need any one and every one needs Him. He is not seized with somnolence or sleep. To Him belongs what is in the heavens and Earth. No one will intercede, on the Day of Judgment, except with His permission.
Islam is the Religion of all the Prophets of Allâh starting with Adam and ending with MuHammad. In Arabic Islam means submission. To believe in the heart and declare with the tongue: « No one is God except Allâh and MuHammad is the Messenger of Allâh » is how one becomes Muslim. Utterance with the Two Professions (Ash-Shahadatan) is required of the person who is not already a Muslim. A Muslim is a believer and a follower of Islam.
