[2:163] Your god is one god; there is no god but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
From this verse it is very clear that Muhammad is not part of the Shahada (Declaration of Faith)
The Muslim masses hold prophet Muhammad higher than God. With the recent incident in Paris it is clear that Muslim’s are ready to kill if someone ridicules the prophet Muhammad, but you hear no uproar when the media mocks God
Chapter47 entitled Muhammad verse 19 is the true shahada
Laa Elaaha Ellaa Allah: First Commandment
[47:19] You shall know that: “There is no other god beside GOD,”* and ask forgiveness of your sins and the sins of all believing men and women. GOD is fully aware of your decisions and your ultimate destiny.
