Salam alaikum, jazakAllah for posting this!!!!!!
I love ur word for word arabic translations:)

However, I have a few questions. Is it "ash hadu ALLA" like you say it, or "ANla"?

and is it "muhammadaN rasulullah" or "muhammadaR rasullah"?

and with the english translations...can abduhu also mean servant ? or is it just slave?

wa alaikum assalam to Anonymous

wa iyyakum.

Good questions.

1- In Arabic, when you apply Tajweed rules in joining one word to another, the pronouncetion is changed.

So, AN-LA becomes AL-LA.

Muhammadan Rasullullah becomes Muhammadar-Rasullullah.

As for Abd it means slave, but in English can be translated into servant or slave.

and Allah knows best

Thanks for your kind words :)
