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. This piece of art in Kufic style is inspired by the shahada statement displaying the Arabic words "La illaha illa Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah". At first glance, this beautiful wooden wall decoration might even appear as geometrical art and only the eyes of awareness will see its true message displaying the core statement of the Islamic religion.
Without acceptance of this core belief, one can not be considered Muslim, as this belief, opens the door to all the other concepts present in Islam. Truly integrating this idea makes it basically enough for someone to be considered Muslim and ritually expression of this testimony is called shahadatain which would formalize the conversion to Islam.
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 noble example to the straight path.
Considering this, this wall panel is a perfect gift to any recently converted Muslim as well a beautiful reminded of this core belief, exclusive to Islam, that makes us a Muslim.
