Shahada or the testimony that there is no God but Allah (swt) and that Prophet Muhammad (saws) is His messenger is the core belief of Islam.
Without having this believe one could not be considered Muslim as accepting this belief opens the door to all the other core believes in Islam. Therefore expressing this testimony makes it basically enough for someone to convert to Islam. This ceremony is called shahadatain.
For the ones that are born as a Muslim, normally the prayer calling called Adhan and Iqamah, which is normally recited between the Adhan and the daily prayers is recited in their right and left ear respectively shortly after birth. Hearing this statement at a young age is their initiation into the religion of Islam and offers them initial protection in the spiritual dimension. As well the Adhan as the Iqamah contains the statement Ashadu an la ilaha illa'llah wa Ashad anna Muhammadan Rasululu'llah as displayed on this beautiful calligraphic wall panel.
This means that accepting Prophet Muhammad (saws) as a messenger of Allah (swt), one and only God, we can consequently also accept the revelation that came through him in form of the Holy Quran and start integrating its teachings following his example to the straight path.
This panel expresses this statement in a calligraphic way where we see a person doing his prayer and therefore practising the religion of Islam which is based on this testimony. Being the first step in the right direction on the demanding path of being a complete Muslim and pleasing our creator it is at the same time the step that needs to be remembered at all times and opens the door to integration of all the other aspects of Islam.
Considering this, this wall panel is a perfect gift to a new Muslim or as a beautiful reminder of this core belief that makes us a Muslim and is exclusive to Islam.
