The objective of the statement La ilaha illAllah is not saying it with the tongue only without understanding it; it is essential that you learn the meaning of La ilaha illAllah as for you saying it without knowing its meaning, that you do not affirm a thing you are ignorant of? Thus, it is essential that you know it's meaning until you affirm it and you affirm with your heart what your tongue articulates of it; so it is binding that you learn the meaning of La ilaha illAllah as for mere articulation of the tongue without understanding its meaning, then this will not benefit at all.
This is a translation of the treatise ‘The Meaning of the Statement of Tawḥid by Shaykh Muḥammad bin ‘Abdul-Wahhab which is included in the collection of his writings, published by the Muḥammad bin Sa‘ud Islamic University, K.S.A. (v.1, p.363).
To increase its benefit, the treatise is coupled with the explanation of Shaykh Ṣalih al-Fawzan, which was transcribed from one of his lessons by Shaykh ‘Abdus-Salam as-Sulayman and printed under the title: ‘Sharḥ Tafsir Kalimat-it-Tawḥid, (published by Darul Imam Aḥmad, Egypt).
