Twenty Traditions from Hazrat Zahra (sa)

1. I testify that there is no Deity (Lord) except the sole & matchless Allah. And the testification of the singleness of Allah is a word that Allah has declared sincerity (as) its reality, & made the hearts the center of its contact & union. And has made the specifications & research of the oneness of Allah's station obvious & evident In the light of meditation. The Allah Who cannot be seen by the eyes & tongues are unable & baffled to describe His virtues & attributes. And the intelligence & apprehension of man is helpless & destitute from the imagination of his lowness. (Ayan ush-Shia Ataba Al Jadeed Vol. I, P315)
 أَشهَدُ أَن لاإِلهَ اِلَّااللهُ وَحدَهُ لا شَريکَ لَهُ، کَلِمَةٌ جُعِلَ الإخلاصُ تَأويلَها، وَضُمِّنَ القُلُوبُ مَوصُولَها، وَأَنارَ فِي التَّفکيرِ مَعقُولها، اَلمُمتَنِعُ مِنَ الأبصارِ رُويَتُهُ، وَمِنَ الأَلسُنِ صِفَتُهُ، وَمِنَ الأَوهامِ کَيفِيَّتُهُ. (أعيان الشيعه –الطبع الجديد-ج1 ص315)
