Denouncing deviants

Kalima Taiyaba clarifies this issue:


‘There is no deity except Allah’

Lets scrutinize the words of the Kalima Taiyaba.


LAA ILAAHA - this is a denial (nafi), {there is no deity}

ILLAL LAAH- this is a confident statement of belief {except Allah}

The Kalima LAA ILAAHA ILLAL LAAH is a combination of denial and a confident statement of belief.

Tauheed is illegitimate if there is only denial and no assertion

Tauheed is still illegitimate if there is only assertion and no denial.

Tauheed will only be legitimate if both the denial and the assertion are aggregated.

But denial is preclusive. i.e. it is introductory, the denial has to come first before the assertion of the belief.

First, there is the denial (there is no deity), and then is the assertion (except Allah).

First, there is the objection of falsehood, then is the assertion of the truth. Then only the kalima is complete and acceptable.


There are people in our society who suggest that we should not denounce or criticize other sects and their corrupt beliefs. These people have created their own fallacy. These hypocrites (Sullah Kullis) are unaware of what Kalima Taiyaba teaches us. Kalima Taiyaba teaches us that we must first denounce deity and take a stand against falsehood. First is ‘LAA’-the denial of deity and opposing of falsehood. And then is the assertion-the statement of belief in Allah. Truth and falsehood cannot be at the same place, at the same time.

This is the first lesson of Islam. Sadly, these Muslims have forgotten the first lesson of Islam.

How can the truth be proven without criticizing the falsehood? One cannot please the Rahmaan as well as the shaitaan. Trying to please both is not tauheed, nor Islam, nor imaan. It is a misconception of the hypocrites (Sullah Kullis).

If they had been attentive to the Kalima Taiyaba they recite, they would have realised that the Kalima Taiyaba teaches us to denounce deity and oppose falsehood first.

‘LAA ILAAHA’ is the denial and ‘ILLAL LAAH’ is the assertion.

‘LAA ILAAHA’ is the objection of falsehood and ‘ILLAL LAAH’ is the confident statement of belief.
