*63:1 The ``first pillar of Islam,'' as stated in 3:18 is to bear witness that God is the only god. But the corrupted ``Muslim'' scholars add ``Muhammad is God's messenger,'' and this violates a number of commandments (see 2:285). Verse 63:1 is the only place in the Quran where such a statement is made. Only the hypocrites make such a statement.
