Îmân is to believe in the six fundamentals declared in the Âmantu and to accept and to like all of the commandments and prohibitions revealed by Allahu ta’âlâ.

Âmantu is as follows:
Âmantu bi’llahi wa malâ’ikatihi wa kutubihi wa rusulihi wal-yawm-il-âkhiri wa bil-qadari khairihi wa sharrihi minallahi ta’âlâ walba’thu ba’d-al-mawt haqqun ash-hadu an lâ ilaha illallah wa ash-hadu anna Muhammadan ’abduhu wa rasűluhu.

[That is, I believe in Allah, in His angels, in His books, in His prophets, in the Last Day, in qadar, in that good and evil are from Allah, in the resurrection after death. I bear witness that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm is Allah’s born servant and Last Prophet.]

What are fundamentals of Islam?
They are as follows:
1. To say the Kalimat ash-shahâda
That is, to say, “Ash’hadu an lâ ilâha illa’llah wa ash’hadu anna Muhammadan ‘abduhu wa rasűluhu.” It means: “I bear witness that [that is, I know and declare as if I saw that] there is no god but Allah and again I bear witness that Muhammad ‘alaihis-salâm is His born servant and His Messenger.” To have belief in the Messenger of Allah means accepting, believing, and liking all of what he communicated.
