The Six Kalimas are fundamental Islamic teachings held by Muslims worldwide.
They spend their life according to these ideas and fundamental values.
The six Kalimas are all Quran passages.
Before talking about detailing the 6th kalma, we have to know all the Six Kalimah; they are as follows:
Translation into English – Allah is the one, God. Allah’s Messenger is Muhammad.
2th Kalima “Shahaadat”
Translation into English – I bear witness that witness only for Allah, the One and Only, without a companion, is deserving of worship, and that Muhammad is His servant and Messenger.
3th Kalima “Tamjeed”
Translation into English – All praise and glory be to Allah, and there is no God except Allah, the Greatest. And Allah is the only one who has Might and Power.
4th Kalima “Tauhid“
Translation into English – There is none worthy of adoration save Allah. There is just one of him. For Him, there are no partners. The kingdom is for Him. And it is through Him that the praise is given. He is both the source of life and the source of death. He is also alive. He will never die; Majesty and reverence are qualities that he possesses. The goodness is in His hands. He is also the goodness. And He is on everything powerful.
Despite the basis of our topic about the 6th kalma, we were interested in mentioning the 5th kalma and the supplication of Istaghfar in this topic due to the increase in the request of many people to know this, which is as follows:
In Roman English, the fifth Kalima Istaghfar is:
“Astaghfiru-llaaha Rabbi Min Kulli Dhambin Adhnabtuhoo ‘Amadan Aw Khata-an Sirran Aw ‘Alaaniyata-wn Wa-atoobu Ilaihi Min-adh Dhambi-l Ladhee A’lamu Wamina-dh Dhambi-l Ladhi Laaa A’lamu Innaka Anta ‘Allaamu-l Ghuyoobi Wasattaaru-l ‘Uyoobi Wa Ghaffaaru-dh Dhunubi Walaa Hawla Walaa Quwwata Illaa Billaahi-l ‘Aliyyil ‘Azeem.”
English translation of the 5th Kalma Istaghfar:
I beg ALLAH, my Creator and Cheriser, for forgiveness for every transgression I have done, whether intentionally or unwittingly, discreetly or publicly. I also ask for forgiveness for all of my sins, whether I am conscious of them or not. Indeed, You (O ALLAH!) are the Knower of the Unknown, the Forgiver of Sins, and the Concealer of Mistakes. “And there is no power and no strength except with ALLAH, the Highest, the Greatest.”
What significance does the 6th kalma (Radde Kufr) have?
The 6th kalma is also known as Radde kufr or radde-e-kuffer, which means rejecting or disbelieving speech.
The essential Islamic notion of Kufr is taught in this Kalima.
This is a big issue in and of itself, but Kufr generally refers to not believing in or rejecting the faith, i.e., being a non-believer.
Kufr means “to hide” or “to conceal,” hence a kuffar is someone who rejects and conceals the truth.
The truth is Tawheed, which states that Allah is the one and only God, that there is no other God than Allah, and that Prophet Muhammad (s.w.t) is Allah’s Messenger.
What are the types of infidelity?
Yes, as you can see, there are types of infidelity, which are as follows:
Rejection & Denial
heart disbelief, A rejection from the outside.
Turning aside in arrogance
Iblees is the most acceptable illustration of turning aside arrogance (shaitan).
“They (hypocrites) say: ‘We have believed in Allah and the Messenger, and we obey, then a party of them turn away after that, such are not believers.” States Surah Al-Noor ayah 47.
The hypocrisy Kufr
People appear to be believers on the surface, but show and express virtue.
They may claim to believe in Allah and the Last Day, and their deeds may reflect this, but their hearts do not.
Kufr of uncertainty
A lack of certainty or reluctance.
This is comparable to agnosticism, or the belief that one does not know—a person who professes neither faith in God nor disbelieve in it.
These forms of Kufr are mentioned in the Quran in various passages. Here are a few examples:
“But verily, a party of them conceal the truth while they know it” – Surah Al-Baqarah Ayah 146
“… except Iblees (Satan), he refused and was proud and was one of the disbelievers (disobedient to Allaah)” – Surah Al-Baqarah Ayah 34
“And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their selves were convinced thereof” – Surah Al-Naml Ayah 14
Those who are aware of the perils of Kufr and desire to safeguard themselves from shirk should memorize and recite the sixth Kalma (associating others alongside Allah).
In the next paragraph, let’s see what the sixth and final kalma is all about.
6th kalma “Radd-e-Kuffer”
In Roman English, the 6th kalma (Radd-e-Kuffer) is:
Allah Humma inni Aaoozubika Min An Oshrika Beka Shai Aown Wa Anaa Aalamo Behi Wasthaghfiruka Lima La A’lamu Behi Tubtu Anho Wa Tabarratu Minal Kufri Washshirki Wal Kizbi Wal Jheebati Wal Bidaati Wan Nameemati Wal Fawahishi Wal Bohtani Wal Maasi Kulliha Wa Aslamtoo Wa Aqoolo Laa ilaaha illal Lahoo Mohammadur Rasool Ullah.
English translation of the sixth Kalma:
Meaning: Rejecting skepticism’s remarks (Radhay kufr)
Thank you, Allah! Indeed, I want protection from You, that I associate with You as a partner in everything, and I am aware of this. And I beg Your pardon for anything I don’t understand. I repented and set myself free from disbelief, polytheism, dishonesty, backbiting, innovation, evil deeds, blame, the tell-tales, and disobedience, all of them. And I submit and declare that none is worthy of worship save Allah, and Muhammad is ALLAH’s Messenger.
The sixth kalma is written in Arabic as follows:
اَللّٰهُمَّ اِنِّیْٓ اَعُوْذُ بِكَ مِنْ اَنْ اُشْرِكَ بِكَ شَيْئًا وَّاَنَآ اَعْلَمُ بِهٖ وَ اَسْتَغْفِرُكَ لِمَا لَآ اَعْلَمُ بِهٖ تُبْتُ عَنْهُ وَ تَبَرَّأْتُ مِنَ الْكُفْرِ وَ الشِّرْكِ وَ الْكِذْبِ وَ الْغِيْبَةِ وَ الْبِدْعَةِ وَ النَّمِيْمَةِ وَ الْفَوَاحِشِ وَ الْبُهْتَانِ وَ الْمَعَاصِىْ كُلِِّهَا وَ اَسْلَمْتُ وَ اَقُوْلُ لَآ اِلٰهَ اِلَّا اللهُ مُحَمَّدٌ رَّسُوْلُ اللهِؕ
