Kalimah

A single honest recitation of the Shahadah in Arabic is all that is required for a person to become a Muslim. This declaration, or statement of faith, is called the Kalimah, which literally means “word”. Recitation of the Shahadah the “oath/testimony”, is the most important of the Five Pillars of Islam for Muslims.

Every Muslim must has to memorize all 6 Kalimas as they are an obligation.

1 - Kalimah Tayyibah (Word of Purity)

لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ ٱللَّٰهِ

There is no god but Allah, [and] Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.

2 - Kalimah Shahadah (Word of Testimony)

أَشْهَدُ أَنْ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ وأَشْهَدُ أَنَّ مُحَمَّدًا عَبْدُهُ وَرَسُولُهُ

I bear witness that (there is) no god except Allah; the One alone, without partner, and I bear witness
that Muhammad is His Servant and Messenger.

3 - Kalimah Tamjeed (Word of Majesty)

سُبْحَانَ ٱللَّٰهِ وَٱلْحَمْدُ لِلَّٰهِ وَلَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ وَٱللَّٰهُ أَكْبَرُ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِٱللَّٰهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

Exalted is Allah, and praise be to Allah, and there is no deity except Allah, and Allah is the Greatest.
And there is no might nor power except in Allah, the Most High, the Most Great.

4 - Kalimah Tawheed (Word of Oneness)

لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، لَهُ ٱلْمُلْكُ وَلَهُ ٱلْحَمْدُ، يُحْيِي وَيُمِيتُ وَهُوَ حَيٌّ لَا يَمُوتُ أَبَدًا أَبَدًا، ذُو ٱلْجَلَالِ وَٱلْإِكْرَامِ بِيَدِهِ ٱلْخَيْرُ وَهُوَ عَلَىٰ كُلِّ شَيْءٍ قَدِيرٌ‎

(There is) no god except Allah – One is He, no partners hath He. His is the Dominion, and His is the
Praise. He gives life and causes death, and He is Living, who will not die, never. He of Majesty and
Munificence. Within His Hand is (all) good. And He is, upon everything, Able (to exert His Will)

5 - Kalimah Istighfar (Word of Penitence)

أَسْتَغْفِرُ ٱللَّٰهَ رَبِّي مِنْ كُلِّ ذَنْبٍ أَذْنَبْتُهُ عَمْدًا أَوْ خَطَأً سِرًّا وَعَلَانِيَةً وَأَتُوبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنَ ٱلذَّنْبِ ٱلَّذِي أَعْلَمُ وَمِنَ ٱلذَّنْبِ ٱلَّذِي لَا أَعْلَمُ، إِنَّكَ أَنْتَ عَلَّامُ ٱلْغُيُوبِ وَسَتَّارُ ٱلْعُيُوْبِ وَغَفَّارُ ٱلذُّنُوبِ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِٱللَّٰهِ ٱلْعَلِيِّ ٱلْعَظِيمِ

I seek forgiveness from Allah, my Lord, from every sin I committed knowingly or unknowingly, secretly
or openly, and I turn towards Him from the sin that I know and from the sin that I do not know.
Certainly,You (are) the know-er 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.

6 - Kalima Radd Kufr ("Word of Rejection of Disbelief")

ٱللَّٰهُمَّ إِنِّي أَعُوذُ بِكَ مِنْ أَنْ أُشْرِكَ بِكَ شَيْءً وَأَنَا أَعْلَمُ بِهِ وَأَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا لَا أَعْلَمُ بِهِ تُبْتُ عَنْهُ وَتَبَرَّأَتُ مِنَ ٱلْكُفْرِ وَٱلشِّرْكِ وَٱلْكِذْبِ وَٱلْغِيبَةِ وَٱلْبِدْعَةِ وَٱلنَّمِيمَةِ وَٱلْفَوَاحِشِ وَٱلْبُهْتَانِ وَٱلْمَعَاصِي كُلِّهَا وَأَسْلَمْتُ وَأَقُولُ لَا إِلَٰهَ إِلَّا ٱللَّٰهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ ٱللَّٰهِ

O Allah! I seek protection in You from that I should not join any partner with You and I have knowledge
of it. I seek Your forgiveness from that which I do not know. I repent from it (ignorance) and I reject
disbelief and joining partners with You and of falsehood and slandering and innovation in religion and
tell-tales and evil deeds and the blame and the disobedience, all of them. I submit to Your will and I
believe and I declare: There is none worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is His Messenger.
