Allaah [The Most High] said:

شَهِدَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ وَٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَأُوْلُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمِ قَآٮِٕمَۢا بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ‌ۚ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ ٱلۡعَزِيزُ ٱلۡحَڪِيمُ

Allah bears witness that Laa ilaaha illaa Huwa [none has the right to be worshipped but He], and the angels, and those having knowledge [also give this witness]; [He is always] maintaining His creation in Justice. Laa ilaaha illaa Huwa [none has the right to be worshipped but He], the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. [Aal Imraan Aayah 18]

[شَهِدَ ٱللَّهُ – Allah bears witness]:

Meaning: Allaah [The Most High] bears witness and He is sufficient as a Witness. He is the Most Truthful and Just Witness, and His speech is absolute truth; [أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ- that None has the right to be worshipped but He]: Meaning: He Alone is the true God of all the creation, everyone is a slave of His and  completely in need of Him, but He is The Independent One Who is Free of All Needs.  Then Allaah [The Most High] mentioned His testimony alongside the testimony of the Angels and that of those endowed with knowledge [amongst the creation]. He [The Most High] said: [شَهِدَ ٱللَّهُ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ وَٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةُ وَأُوْلُواْ ٱلۡعِلۡمِ  – Allah bears witness that none has the right to be worshipped but He), and the angels, and those having knowledge (also give this witness)]; this is a great virtue of the scholars.

Then Allaah [The Most High] said: [قَآٮِٕمَۢا بِٱلۡقِسۡطِ‌ۚ – He (Allaah) is always maintaining His creation in Justice]: Meaning: Allaah [The Most High] maintains justice in all affairs. Then Allaah [The Most High] emphasised His previous statement, saying: [  لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّا هُوَ – None has the right to be worshipped but He]. [ٱلۡعَزِيزُ – The All-Mighty]; [ٱلۡحَڪِيمُ – The All-Wise]: Meaning: He is The All-Wise in all His statements, actions, divine legislation and decrees.
