The best one is who bore witness that “Laa ‘ilaaha illa Allaah(there is no deity except Allaah).”
 
 
 
 
Allaah The Almighty, His Angels and those of knowledge:
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Allaah witnesses that there is no deity except Him, and [so do] the angels and those of knowledge - [that He is] maintaining [creation] in justice. There is no deity except Him, the Exalted in Might, the Wise.}[Aal-‘Imraan: 18] 
 
The most evil one who bore witness of it:
 
This is a witness from the god of “the falsehood to the god of the truth.” It is the witness of the one who said: “I have not known you to have a god other than me.” It is an acknowledgement from Fir‘awn (pharaoh) which we present to every tyrant and arrogant pharaoh in every time and in every place. So let them listen to their leader when he acknowledges monotheism and looks at their ideal when he submits to the Lord of the whole universe and Lord of all slaves in a situation which no kingdom, crown or soldiers can avail. 
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{And We took the Children of Israel across the sea, and Pharaoh and his soldiers pursued them in tyranny and enmity until, when drowning overtook him, he said, "I believe that there is no deity except that in whom the Children of Israel believe, and I am of the Muslims." Now? And you had disobeyed [Him] before and were of the corrupters? So today We will save you in body that you may be to those who succeed you a sign. And indeed, many among the people, of Our signs, are heedless.}[Yoonus: 90-92]
 
God, exalted and glorified be He:
 
The greatest proof in the religion speaks about God:
 
It was narrated that the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said to Ubay ibn Ka‘b, may Allaah be pleased with him: “Which is the greatest Ayah (verse) in the Book of Allaah.” Ubayy said, Allaahu la ilaha illa Huwal-Hayyul-Qayyoom. (Allaah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence).'' He said: “Thereupon the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, struck me on my breast and said, By Allaah, congratulations for having knowledge, O Abu Al-Munthir![1]
 
Allaah The Almighty says:
 
{Allaah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence).}[Al-Baqarah: 255]
 
He The Almighty also says:
 
{And it is Allaah who is [the only] deity in the heaven, and on the earth [the only] deity. And He is the Wise, the Knowing.}[Az-Zukhruf: 84]
 
It was also reported in the honorable Hadeeth that Khubayb ibn ‘Adi, may Allaah be pleased with him, sacrificed his soul for the Sake of the God The Almighty. Abu Hurairah, may Allaah be pleased with him, narrated that when the infidels of Quraish were about to kill Khubayb ibn ‘Adi, may Allaah be pleased with him, he recited the following poetic verse:
 
I am being martyred as a Muslim,
 
 Do not mind how I am killed in Allaah's Cause,
 
 For my killing is for Allaah's Sake, And if Allaah wishes,
 
He will bless the amputated parts of a torn body.[2]
