Will the one who does not establish the true reality of ‘’laa ilaaha illa Allah” enter paradise or hellfire?
It is inevitable that the one who does not establish the conditions of laa ilaaha illa Allah will enter the fire. If he wasn’t sincere; if he wasn’t truthful; if he did not know its meaning; if he said Laa ilaaha illa Allah and explained it as “there is no creator except Allah (and) ‘’there is no provider except Allah,’’ (then even) if we were to (give) him the excuse of ignorance the least about him is that he is from the misguided sects.
