one will get the reward of manumitting ten slaves, and one-hundred good deeds will be written in his account, and one-hundred bad deeds will be wiped off or erased from his account, and on that day he will be protected from the morning till evening from Satan, and nobody will be superior to him except one who has done more than that which he has done.”

Conditions Of La Ilaha Illallah Wahdahu La Sharika Lahu
There are a number of conditions that must be applied when pronouncing the word of tawheed. The Quran and Sunnah show that there are seven conditions of kalma shahada.
It is vital that to make sure that we are meeting these conditions in our own lives and in our own testimony of faith. We must do our best to satisfy these conditions before it is too late and our testimony will be of no avail whatsoever.
We should make sure that we are actually meeting these conditions so that, by Allah’s mercy, the doors to Paradise will be open for us by our key of la ilaha illa Allah.
- Knowledge (Ilm)
You must have the basic and general knowledge of what is meant by the shahadah. You must understand what the shahadah is affirming and what the shahadah is denying.
- Certainty (Yaqin)
This is the opposite of doubt and uncertainty. In Islam, any kind of doubt is equivalent to kufr or disbelief. We must, in our hearts, be absolutely certain of the truth of the shahadah.
- Acceptance (Qabul)
If a person has knowledge of and certainty in the shahadah, this must followed by acceptance, with the tongue and heart, of whatever that shahadah implies.
Whoever refuses to accept the shahadah and its implications, even if he knows that it is true and certain about its truth, than he is a disbeliever. This refusal to accept is sometimes due to pride, envy or other reasons. In any case, the shahadah is not a true shahadah without its unconditional acceptance.
- Submission (Inqiyad)
This implies the actual physical enactment with our deeds of our shahadah. In fact, this is one of the main meanings of the word Islam itself, “the submission to the will and commands of Allah.”
- Truthfulness (Sidq)
As opposed to hypocrisy and dishonesty. This means that when we say the shahadah, we are saying it honestly.
- Sincerity (Ikhlas)
That is, when we make the shahadah, we must do so solely for the sake of Allah. We must not do it for any other reason. And we must not do it for anyone else’s sake.
- Love (Mahabbah)
That is, the believer loves this shahadah, he loves in accordance with the shahadah, he loves the implications and requirements of the shahadah and he loves those who act and strive for the sake of this shahadah.
