Answer to conflicts with the Shahadah

Good morning and peace to youall , during a conversation with an individual the topic of Shahada came up, this is an exerpt of it and my conclusion based on the Quran. I was reading this thread and after careful examination i wanted to answer some of your opinions and questions you stated and asked an answer for. I will quote it here for you so you do not have to scroll all over to find it: You stated and asked: ""Nothing wrong with adding muhammadan rasulAllah"" ""don’t over exaggerate everything!!!! To acknowledge Muhammad as the last prophet is not a shirk, Shirk in this case would be to say that Mohammed and Allah are equal"" ""why do you lie in my name? I never said anything about necessity.

There is no god except He, the Noble, the Wise. 64:12 So, obey Allah and obey the Messenger; but if you turn away, then only upon Our Messenger (is) the conveyance clear. Here in verses 3:18 is the evidence of the Shahada, it is very clear and easy to understand and detailed in its meaning and purpose and directly from Allah. I am sure based on the conversation I read that you have no issue with understanding this part so let’s move on to answering your next issue. you stated: "your exaggerating tremendously for calling it shirk for when people are saying that Mu
