And for those Muslims who are deep in their understanding of the particular verse:
Fusslilat 41 : 11 Then ALLAH rose over (Istawa) towards the heaven when it was smoke, and said to it and to the earth: "Come both of you willingly or unwillingly." They both said: "We come willingly."
and remember this as they as they go thru at each stage of the ritual, there will be at certain point in time at a stage of the process tears would flow out when ALLAHswt is felt the Most Humblest and yet call Man His slaves/messengers, Most Merciful and yet call Man born of haste and forgetful. They would then understand the universal meaning of the dualism in the Kalima Shahada. In this verse ALLAHswt could only speak to Himself because a specific Man is yet uncreated.
The Kalima Laillah illallah Muhammad Rasullulah
There is no gods but Allah Muhammad is the prophet of Allah
Sunnatullah Sunna Rasul
Order & Laws of Allah for the Order & Law of Allah thru the
macrocosm of the Universe prophet for the microcosm of Man

In Arabic Quran Tashbih Tanzih

In Hinduism/Buddhism Dharma Karma
In Quranic Creation Manifestation of Manifestation of 2nd. Creation
1st. Creation (Lights of (Lights of saviour prophets thru
Adam/Eve) into matter creation of souls.
Throughout the Hajj process each of the pilgrimming Muslim is a messenger and slave of ALLAHswt and each has to go thru all the stages/phases/maqm until the last abode as an angel at the plain of the Arafah before passing thru the "gate" at Sidrat-ul-Muntaha with their graduate convocation scroll (Al-Quran) in their hands to join the 70,000 ever changing batches of angels qeueing to make their Final Return to ALLAHswt [as described in Muhammadsaw's Mi'raj (Ascension) account) - Sahih Al-Bukhari Vol. 4, Hadith # 429].
