Is there any textual evidence for the origin of these? So, to deal with this challenge it was first necessary to make people understand the basic concepts before they could jman more about the essence of Islam. Thank you for your contributions. You can just say yes or no. By the way, I think I discovered it.

Because These have been compiled from various Sahih Hadiths S. I am researching a book written in the s based on these phrases, mufaswal I am wondering if there is a Sufi background for them since the Mughal empire was a time when Sufi groups flourished. I seek forgiveness from Him for anything ill said.

Every Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslim I have asked has said that yes, they do memorize them, but that they do not know when that practice started.

Sorry to keep asking but I think it’s important to know the origins of the various worldwide practices of Islam to understand them in their historical context. These kalimas were compiled together for children to memorise kman learn the basic fundamentals of a Muslim’s beliefs.

Also, yes, one doesn’t have to recite them together, but people mostly in south Asia do, and I am trying to find out why. No it doesn’t mean they are all given together in any one Hadith S.

Znd 6 six Kalimas anx recorded in various books of knowledge, and are recited and remembered by people across the globe. Last commented by fa3 almost 4 years ago. I have faith in Allah and His Angels, His Books and His Messengers, and the Jufassal of Judgement and that mujml good and evil and fate is from Almighty Allah and it is sure that there will be resurrection after death.

Thanks for the answer. Choose your preferred language: Your guess was right. The Kalimahs came into existence to facilitate the easy memorising and learning of Aqeedah beliefs. Again my answer is same, people recite them one after the other because they are provided in islamic books one after the other i. Please tell me the reference. By “reason” I mean the way they came to exist together, not the fact that they do exist together.


I would also be grateful for any suggestions books of aqidah, ta lim, or imaan from Mughal India, etc of where to look for this information. Those are the ones mufasal have been true, and it is those who are the righteous. Even salat is performed just as an act and not really feeling kujmal sprituality from within. This was introduced as part of the curriculum in madarsahs to teach and make understand the basic belief. No the 6 khalimas are from the Sunni sect. Jazak allah khayran wa allahu a3lam.

You can find in the translation of all the six kalimas “There is none worthy of worship except Allah”. May Allah guide us all to the right path. Again, I don’t guarantee the authenticity of this explanation but this is just based on the historical trend of Islam mufassak South Asia.

Islamic Zone: Iman-e-Mufassil and Iman-e-Mujmal,

However, some of them can be found individually in the narrations. Do you all think it is strange or unique that many Muslims in South Asia memorize these without knowing the uman for them in any book of fiqh or ‘aqidah or sunnah?

I want to know the origin of these 6 Kalimas? Let me see if I understand this.

I really think we should try to get to the bottom of this for the sake of better understanding the history of Islam.

Naghma over 5 years ago link. They appear to be specific to South Asia, at earliest dated to the reign of Akbar the Mughal, and why that is the case is what I am trying to find out.

Sift Iman-e-Mujmal

While Kalimah Istighfar is mentioned in Bukhari 2: I just don’t know if I should find it strange or not. All the mosques and Ulamas recommend these 6 Kalimas. Righteousness is not that you turn your faces toward the east or the west, but [true] righteousness is [in] one who believes in Allahthe Last Day, the angels, the Book, and the prophets and gives wealth, in spite of love for it, to relatives, orphans, the needy, the traveler, those who ask [for help], and for freeing slaves; [and who] establishes prayer and gives zakah; [those who] fulfill their promise when they promise; and [those who] are patient in poverty and hardship and during battle.


W but what I mean by saying provided in one place like in small islamic books Compiled in one place by Muslims. If anyone wants to know just ask. I mean, really, they are just memorized by Muslims in South Asia and the origin of that practice is unknown?

Sufism is also seen as the driving factor in the popularising of Islam in North Africa, but they were not cut off from the other sects. What do you mean by “they are provided in one place”? I mean, does any book of hadith record “amantu bi-l-lahi kama huwa bi-asma’ihi wa-sifaatihi wa qabiltu jamii a ahkaamihi wa-arkaanihi” and describe it as al-imaan mujammalan, paired with qnd bi-l-laahi wa-malaa’ikatihi wa-kutubihi wa-rusulihi wa-l-yawm al-aakhir khayrihi wa-sharrihi min allahi ta aala wa-l-ba thi ba da al-mawt” described as mutassal mufassalan?

Because these are a part of curriculum in schools and to teach children they are provided in one place. Hence the scholars compiled the 6 kalimahs as one Arabic qaidah and added iman e mujmal and iman e mufassal.

The Shii khalimas are 5 or 7: Usually they are provided in books for Namaz, in Arabic Qaidah and at the end of few islamic books. The Shii have it different. Both Shii and Sunni follow the khalimas of Islam.

So do you know how I could find out when and where these distinctions came from, or any suggestions for where to look to understand why in India they use the six kalimas with the iman mujmal and iman mufassal which are not used in Iran, Arabia, or Turkestan?
