Shahadatain

The Shahadatain - The Primary Pillar of Islam

2 sentences of the shahadah (testimony). The 2 main components of Islam in the testimony. Allah as The Creator and Muhammad PBUH as The Messenger of Allah.

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لاَ إِلَهَ إِلاَّ اللَّهُ
وَ أَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا رَسُولُ اللهِ

"I testify that none has the right to be worshiped but Allah, and I testify that Muhammad is The Messenger of Allah.”

The artwork is driven by my experience of one accepting Islam, something I have far taken for granted as Islam was passed on to me from generation to generation.

The shadatain is the primary pillar of Islam. It is of the utmost importance as it is the foundations of my faith. As every second that passes in this life is a step closer to my entering the next world, The Hereafter, returning to The Creator, returning to Allah, and before that return it is not just in the mere spoken, or utterance of the shahadatain, it's true essence is in

the acceptance and the believing of Allah and Muhammad PBUH in the heart and to hope that as my soul leaves my body, I leave this world as a believer.
