The Shahada, also spelled shahadah, (from the verb šahida "to testify") is the Islamic creed. The Shahada is the Muslim declaration of belief in the oneness of God and acceptance of Muhammad as his prophet.
The declaration reads: Lā ilaha illa al-Lāh, Muhammadun rasūlu l-Lāh “There is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God" in English.
This declaration is called the Kalima, which literally means "words." Recitation of the Shahadah is the most important of the Five Pillars of Islam for Muslims and is performed daily. Non-Muslims wishing to convert to Islam do so by a public recitation of the creed. Technically the Shi'a do not consider the Shahadah to be a separate pillar, but connect it to the beliefs.
Could Islam figure prominently into the end time prophecies of the Bible? Perhaps it is possible that Christians have been looking at end times and prophetic events with "blinders" on, and there is something we have missed.
Adherents to Islam have their own prophecies about the end times that include the return of Jesus, plus their own messianic figure known as Al-Mahdi. Is it possible that the Islamic Jesus and Al-Mahdi are the false prophet and anti-christ of Christian prophecy?
Join Pastor Ken Swiger as he explores the role of Islam in the end times in this two-part presentation.
