If one were to search the net they would find various pages dedicated to demonstrating how to say and write I love you in as many languages as those making the list can compile. One might also find less meaningful phrases such as Where is the bar? or Cheers!. For any Muslim there is indeed no phrase more dear to them than the Shahādah or the Kalimah, so I decided to compile such a list for surely it would be far more useful and beloved to us than any other phrase. For those wondering, the shahādah and the kalimah are not the exact same thing, rather they are 2 similar phrases. Basically, the Shahādah is in English - I testify that there is no god but Allah, and I testify that Muħammad is the Messenger of Allāh whereas the kalimah is There is no god but Allāh, Muħammad is the Messenger of Allah. The shahādah then is when one expresses their belief in the kalimah. The word shahādah itself means testimony and the word kalimah means either phrase or that which is spoken, granting to this specific phrase the honour of being the most beloved and central phrase to a Muslim so much so that it only needs to be called the phrase almost as if it were saying it were the phrase of phrases. It is commonly said in error that the shahādah appears on the flag of Saudi Arabia, I hear this commonly amongst non-Muslim vexillogists (those who study flags) and possibly from this influence also Muslims repeating this. When the kalimah is displayed it is commonly mistakenly referred to as the shahādah. As the above explanation would show, the kalimah is what appears on the Saudi Arabian flag, not the shahādah, the 2 although similar are indeed different things. For the time being I have supplied only the kalimah where available, however some of the additions are the longer shahādah. I will identify those which are the shahādah with a star (*) after the phrase so as to not confuse between the two. There are currently 80 translations available and 11 transliterations. If you can help add to this list please let me know! If you can speak the following languages also it would be a great help if you could proof read the translations before I put them up - Kurdish, Malayalam or Wolof.

لا اله الا الله محمد رسول الله

There is no god but Allāh, Muħammad is the Messenger of Allah
