The 6 Kalimas - First Step in Islam

The 6 (six) Kalimas are recorded in various books of knowledge, and are recited (and remembered) by people across the globe.

These kalimas were compiled together for children to memorise and learn the basic fundamentals of a Muslim's beliefs. They are not found altogether complete in any one hadith or narration from the Prophet (peace be upon him). However, some of them can be found individually in the narrations.

Listed below are the 6 well known Kalimas.

First Kalima - Kalima Tayyabah - Listen it in Arabic

The word Tayyabah means Purity. The first requirement for a non-Muslim to become Muslim, is to say this kalima. By saying this, a person nullifies existing of any false gods and delcares Allah Almighty as the one and only God and Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is His Messenger.

English Translation: (There is) none worthy of worship except Allah. He is only One. (There is) no partners for Him. For Him (is) the Kingdom. And for Him (is) the Praise. He gives life and acuses death. And He (is) Alive. He will not die, never, ever. Possessor of Majesty and Reverence. In His hand (is) the goodness. And He (is) the goodness. And He (is) on everything powerful.

Fifth Kalima Ishtaghfar (Forgivness)

Certainly You, You (are) the knower of the hidden things and the Concealer (of) the mistakes and the Forgiver (of) the sins. And (there is) no power and no strength except from Allah, the Most High, the Most Great.

I repended from it and I made myself free from disbelief and polytheism and the falsehood and the back-biting and the innovation and the tell-tales and the bad deeds and the blame and the disobedience, all of them. And I submit and I say (there is) none worthy of worship except Allah, Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah.
