The Second Part - Muhammadar rasoolullah

In it the affirmation is made of the Divine Apostleship of Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him). That Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) is the Apostle of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) means that he was raised up by the Almighty for the guidance of the world and whatever he taught, preached or revealed like the Divinity of the origin of the Quran, the existence of the angels, the certainty of the Last Day, the Resurrection, the Judgment, the award of heaven and hell according to one’s deeds on the earth was hundred percent true and authentic. Indeed, the Apostleship of the holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) denotes nothing more and nothing less than this that all the things he taught to the world, all the truths he revealed to mankind, were based on Divine inspiration, that they were based on special and authoritative knowledge vouchsafed to him by Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), and so they were absolutely correct and beyond dispute. There is not the least excuse, the slightest reason, for doubting or questioning his word. The guidance he gave to men, the laws he laid down, was Divine guidance and Divine laws which had been inspired to him by the Almighty. You would have realized that the acceptance of any one as a Divine Apostle automatically implies that each and every precept and command of his should be whole heartedly believed in and obeyed for Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa) raised up His Apostles in the world solely to convey through them to mankind the commands and precepts He wants it to follow. Says the Quran:

“We sent not an Apostle, but to be obeyed in accordance with the Will of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa)”.

To believe in anyone as an Apostle and to accept him as such, thus, means simply to hold every word of his as true, to regard his teachings and guidance to be the teachings and guidance of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), and to decide, once for all, to lead one’s life according to the precepts he taught. So, if a person recites the Kalima but does not, as a logical consequence of it, resolve firmly to hold all the teachings of the Prophet (Peace be upon him) to be wholly true and all that may run counter to them to be wholly false, and to abide by his Shariat (holy law) and his commands faithfully, he, of course is not a man of faith and a Muslim.

He, probably, has not even understood what it means to be a Muslim.

It is obvious that once we have recited the Kalima and accepted the Prophet (Peace be upon him) as the true Apostle of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), it becomes obligatory for us to believe in his guidance, to adhere to his commands and to observe faithfully the Shariat he brought. A Covenant From the meaning and interpretation of the holy Kalima given above, you will have realized that it is a covenant. It embodies the pledge and the vow that we believe in Allah as the One and Only Lord Sovereign, Master and Creator, and regard everything that exists in this world and the Hereafter to be exclusively in His control, and that, since we do so, we will worship Him alone and carry out His commands the way a servant and a slave carries out the commands of his master, and love Him and adore him above all else, and, further, that we accept Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) as the true Apostle of Allah (Subhaanahu Wata’aalaa), and will abide by his guidance as a loyal follower and fashion our lives according to the holy law laid down by him. In fact, faith denotes nothing except this pledge and covenant and this is precisely what the affirmation of Divine
