Shahada Explained

Posted on: March 16, 2006 | Views: 26 | Comment

Standwithus.com proStandwithus.com provided this clip from Palestinian TV with the following explanation.

Shahada means two things.

SHAHADA: To die for Allah, one's death serves as a "witness" that one's death was for Allah.

SHAHADA: To make a statement, to "testify" that "Allah is God and Mohammed his prophet"

By using the same term as the "testimony" for death, the act of dying for Allah is elevated by the declaration of faith. Please watch the tape to understand more fully the use of the term, and its current application in Palestinian culture. You will hear children, a TV personality and clerics use the term to describe MARTYRDOM, and you will hear songs expressing Shahada as martyrdom as well.
