Akhnas bin Shareeq once asked Abu Jahl:

“O Abu Jahl. Now we are alone. Be truthful to me. Is Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) speaking lies?”

“The fact is that whatever Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) says is the truth. He does not speak lies. However the revelation that comes to him is false,” Abu Jahl admitted.

Having experienced the truthfulness of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) for the last forty years, Abu Jahl did not have the courage to dare accuse Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) of speaking lies.

Thus, Imaan is based on two testimonies- To testify that Allah Ta’ala is one and that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) is the last prophet. Accepting the oneness of Allah Ta’ala alone is insufficient. One also has to accept the prophethood of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). Who does not believe in the prophethood of Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) can never gain salvation.

It is impossible to reach Allah Ta’ala without following Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam). It is therefore imperative that together with love for Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), we also have the correct Aqeedah. The love will be of benefit only when it is accompanied with the correct Aqeedah. Abu Lahab, as well as all the Arabs, had love for Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) but they did not have the correct Aqeedah. Without Aqeedah, the love cannot become a means of salvation in the Hereafter.
