Kalma Tayyaba has got 7 words only in it and the name of Allah Almighy is in middle three words on the left side and three words on the right side. As Following Picture:
Dear Islamic Brothers and Sisters, Also you can see The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) name is surrounded by Name of Allah Almight. Also in Kalma Tayyab all letters are dotless (There is no dot ( zer , zabar , and pesh ) in the First Kalma Tayyab). And scholars say that dotless letters are very powerful in all Alphabets.
Kalma tayyaba has two part one is about Allah and the Second Part is about Prophet Muhammad (saw).We know that name of Allah contain 4 letters only as Alif ,Laam,Laam,Hay. And the Haroof abjad number of Allah’s name is 66 (Sixty-Six), which becomes 6+6=12=1+2=3. The first part of Kalma contains only 3 unique letters Laam,Alif and hay.i.e.
Allah Definition-But the number of words are 4 Four as you can see above. And in name of Allah i.e. الله
There are 4 Arabic letters in Allah’s words so there may be a connection between each word of Kalma and the letters of Allah’s name. The Allalh’s name is the 4th word from the beginning and the name contains 4 letters.
Second Part of the Kalima tayyaba
And in the Second part of Kalma there are 12 Arabic letters and the number of unique letters is 9 and 9 is the greatest single digit. The last part contains 3 words only and each word consists of 4 letters exactly. The Prophet’s Name Muhammad (PBUH) is the 5th word in Kalma and there are 5 prayers. Total number of Arabic letters are 24 so it means a one should follow Allah(swt) and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) 24 hours a day.
If we divide 619/24=25.791666666666666666666666666667, where 2+5=7.and 66 repeats infinitesimally,which is the number of Allah name,الله .And we know the kalma is about Allah especially the first part. The first letter of kalma Tayyab is 30=ل Which is 3+0=3 which is odd. The Haroof Abjad sum of first part of Kalma is 165.as below:
The Haroof Abjad sum of first part of Kalma
If we write a best combination of this number 165 as 615 then it becomes 6 1+5=66.Which is the sum of Allah’s name الله. Dear Brothers and Sister, If we add first three words then its total is=99 which is the total number of names of Allah(swt) and the name of Allah is separate total are 100.
