2nd Second Kalma -Shahadat- in English, Arabic, & Benefits

The (2nd) Second Kalma also known as “Shahadat” means “bearing witness to faith”. It reflects the witness of a Muslim that Allah is one and only and Muhammad (ﷺ) is His last messenger and prophet.

It Comes after the 1st Kalma -Tayyab- and before the 3rd Kalima -Tamjeed-

2nd kalima Benefits

The memorization and recitation of the 2nd Kalima on daily basis wipe our fear away except for the fear of Allah. It makes a believer calm and honest in his deeds and actions. When Muslims recite the second Kalima they proclaim:

  • That Allah is the one and only God, and that Muhammad is his servant and messenger.
  • they personally accept this as fact.
  • they will obey all the commitments of Islam in their life.

So the benefits from that would be:

  1. Allah will be pleased with the one saying Shahadat
  2. There will be ease in death
  3. One’s grave will be capacious
  4. One will see one’s clay/adobe in Jannah

  6. The reciter will be befriended by the most truthful people in Jannah
  7. One will reach the highest level of virtues and will gain the pleasure of Allah
