THE 7 CONDITIONS OF "LA ILAAHA ILLA ALLAH"
The first Condition: al-Ilm – Knowledge: about whom we are worshipping is critical for understanding Islam. Knowledge in Islam consists of recognizing Allah as the only true God to Whom worship must be dedicated, and denouncing all gods worshipped besides Allah as false, and that they can neither extend benefit nor cause harm. It calls for complete disassociation from false deities and for the purification of intentions:
“So know (O Muhammad (saw)) that La ilaha illa Allah (none has the right to be worshiped except Allah) and ask forgiveness for your sin, and also for (the sin of) believing men and believing women.” 
The Prophet (saw) said:
“He who died knowing (full well) that there is no true God worthy of being worshipped except Allah, entered Al Jannah.”
