The Abandoned Pillar of Islam

There is one of the pillar of Islam which was abandoned by several moslem people, declaring Syahadah. Although this is one of the main pillar in doing Islamic religion, but in reallity this was abandoned by moslem people today. They mostly leave and not doing this.

For the most of moslem people today, the execuse which was come up is that Syahadah already included within the prayer. Where did this excuse come from? On what reason and which proposition this excuse was coming from? What did make moslem people abandon this Syahadah? The answer is unclear and does not have strong reason.

The other part of moslem people argue that making Syahadah statement was needed only duirng first time someone converting himself into Islam. Is it a right opinion? What was the reason behind and which proposition does say so? The answer is unclear and does not have strong reason.

In the end of time like nowadays, a moslem is very easy to slip out from Islamic religion. A moslem who deliberately committed to do sin, to do immorality, to do lie, do do cheat or to hold grudges, jealosy and envy, then all of those will lead to the angry of Allah swt and slip out someone from Islamic religion.

So, then our guru taught to his disciples to do as many as possible and as often as possible to declare the Syahadah in their heart. In turn, this will guarantee us to be in Islamic always.

Someone who never or very seldom declaring the 2 sentences of Syahadah, then he will be at risk if he die at that particular time, then he will die not in Islamic religion. Does this case is happened a lot? Yes, this kind of cases are happened a lot, especially nowadays, there are many moslem people that whenever they die, they were not die in Islamic religion.

That was why Allah swt warned us within the Qoran as the following verse.

یٰۤاَیُّہَا الَّذِیۡنَ اٰمَنُوا اتَّقُوا اللّٰہَ حَقَّ تُقٰتِہٖ وَ لَا تَمُوۡتُنَّ اِلَّا وَ اَنۡتُمۡ مُّسۡلِمُوۡنَ
“O you who have believed, fear Allah as He should be feared and do not die except in Islam.” (QS 3:102)

Long time ago, Rasulullah saw and his disciples were doing dhikr with repeatedly declaring the 2 sentences of Syahadah inside their hearts. That what was meant by doing taqwa to Allah swt with really the true taqwa. Someone who did prayer, fasting, zakah and hajj prilgrimage, but they neglecting to repeatedly declare Syahadah then they will be categorized as not being taqwa with really the true taqwa.

Declaring the 2 sentences of Syahadah is one of the first pillar of Islam, so then do this first pillar and never abandoning it. How many people who did fasting and prayer but they negligent. They abandoned this first pillar of Islam, so being unaware that if they die at that time, then they die not in Islam. (AK/ST)
