"...This day have I perfected your religion for you and completed My favour unto you,
and have chosen for you as religion AL-ISLAM. Whoso is forced by hunger,
not by will, to sin: (for him) Lo! Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. [Surah al-Maeda: 3]

AlhamdulilLah, besides providing tips on how to counter critics about the Oneness of Allah SWT, Ustaz Zhulkeflee further elaborated on the shahadahtain, specifically where the Ummah bear testimony on the oneness of Allah SWT and that Prophet Muhammad SAW is the seal of prophethood.
"Say, (O Muhammad, to mankind): If ye love Allah, follow me; Allah will love you and forgive you your sins. Allah is Forgiving, Merciful. Say: Obey Allah and the messenger. But if they turn away, lo! Allah loveth not the disbelievers (in His guidance)." [Surah Ale Imran: 31-32]
Ustaz briefly outlined the Sirah of our beloved Prophet SAW from his birth till his last sermon. To know is to love so it cannot be mere lip service, so follow through one's conviction through practice and conduct, exemplified by our beloved Prophet SAW.
Allow me to share the first video of a series of 18 lectures by Sheikh Yasir Qadhi on the sirah of the Exemplar beyond compare (SAW). You can also download "Stories of the Prophets" from The Deen Show:
