These were only few examples. There are many many verses of Ginans about Prophet Muhammad [PBUH] example in Ginan Buj Niranjan Pir Sadardin says

• Nabi’s Noor is none other then God’s
• The one who does not search for the truth about Nabi how can he understand Him?
• Those who do not listen to Nabi’s teaching are truly deaf
• Repentance is the road to take for Prophet Muhammad [PBUh] also says so
• Accept Hazrat Nabi Muhammad [PBUH] as true Nabi and your imaan will remain strong.
• The Holy Quran should be understood for it is interpreted by the Nabi for you.
• If you will recognize the Nabi’s marifat then you will able to recognize the Lord.



“The Holy Prophet’s life give us every fundamental guideline that we require to resolve the problem as successfully as our human mind and intellects can visualize. His example of integrity, loyalty,honesty,generosity both of means and of time, His solcitude for the poor, the weak and the sick, His steadfastness in friendship, His humility in success, His magnanity in victory, His simplicity, His wisdom in conceiving new solutions for the problems which could not be solved by traditional methods, without affecting the fundamental concepts of Islam. Surely all these foundations which correctly understood and sincerely interpreted must enable us to conceive that should be a truly modern and dynamic Islamic society in the years ahead.”

SHAHADA is the religious expression by which we declare our faith in Allah, His Prophet and the Imam.

Shahada is also called 'KALIMAH'. The Shahada is:
LA ILAHA ILL-ALLAH, MUHAMMAD-UN RASULU-LLAH, ALIYYUN AMIRUL MU'MINEEN 'ALIYYULLAH.

This is recited in the second part of our Holy Du'a. 'La ilaha ill-Allah' means 'THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH'. 'Muhammad-un Rasulu-llah' means 'MUHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH'. 'Aliyyun Amirul Mutmineen 'Aliyyullah' means 'ALI, THE MASTER OF BELIEVERS, IS FROM ALLAH'.

When we recite the Shahada after the Tasbih, we add the words
'ASHADU ANNA' and say it as follows:
ASHADU ANNA LA ILAHA ILL-ALLAH,
ASHADU ANNA MUHAMMAD-UN RASULU-LLAH,
ASHADU ANNA AMIRUL MU'MINEEN 'ALIYYULLAH.

This means:

I BEAR WITNESS THAT THERE IS NO GOD BUT ALLAH
I BEAR WITNESS THAT MUHAMMAD IS THE MESSENGER OF ALLAH I BEAR WITNESS THAT ALI, THE MASTER OF BELIEVERS, IS FROM ALLAH.

Any person joining the Ismaili Faith must recite this SHAHADA.

http://sun.ismaili.net/re/page74.html

****
There is an interesting article on Shahada given by Cyril Glasse in his Concise Encyclopedia of Islam.

"Shahadah (from the verb shahida, "to observe", "to witness , "to
testify ; "a perceiving", "a testification"). The affirmation and creed
that is fundamental to Islam; the first and most important ot the "Five
Pillars of Islam". The Prophet said: "I have brought nothing more
important than the shahadah." When it is accepted sincerely — or
"seen" — the consequence is surrender (islam) to God, Allah, and
becoming muslim. It is made up of two statements, the "two
testifications" (ash-shahadatan; the dual of shahadah). In this context
it should be noted that the verb shahida (and hence the noun shahadah)
has a double significance typical of the genius of the Arabic language:
it embraces the acts ot seeing or perceiving and then of declaring that
one has seen or perceived. The key to this is the link between act and
speech which, in the Arabic soul is so swift and spontaneous that many
words bear a double significance reflecting it. For example, dhikr
("memory") is also "mention", that is, the verbalization of memory. It
is for this reason that the first meaning of "observe", "see",
"perceive" passes on to the complementary meanings of "bear witness",
"testify", "live out the truth that has been perceived" and, even, "die
for that truth": the word shahid means "martyr". The Arabic shahadatan
are AshhaJu an la ilaha illa-llah, wa ashhadu anna Muhammadan
rasulu-llah ("I perceive (and bear witness) that there is no god except
Allah and I perceive (and hear witness) that Muhammad is the Messenger
of God".)
The rules of euphony in Arabic elide the nun into the following lam and
ra'; thus this is correctly pronounced Ashhadu al ilaha illa-llah, wa
ashha-du anna Muhammadar-rasulu0llah.

It is the Arabic alone that vehicles the rituallv effective and
sacramental force of the words. Ultimately, the one condition of
salvation is the complete acceptance of the shahadah. The shahddah
expunges the error of Adam — symbolized by the eating of the
forbidden fruit — of seeing objects as reality, in place of God. The
sense of the shahadah is that one sees that only the Absolute, only
Allah, is Reality. The second shahadah, in defining the Prophet
Muhammad, also defines through him the relationship of manifestation or
creation as a message or revelation from God.

It is sometimes held that a single uttering of the' shahadah is
sufficient in order to be saved. But while the encounter of the shahadah
is a unique event out of time, man lives in time and multiplicity; the
depth of his affirmation and the extent to which he is transformed by it
cannot be conclusively demonstrated from one utterance. Therefore the
shahadah must be repeated and lived until the implicit realization has
penetrated to the center of one's being, until through concentration
upon the truth, and virtue, the individual substance is transformed and
made itself adequate to the truth.

The Beduins say, 'We believe.' Say: 'You do not believe; rather say, "We
surrender"; for belief has not yet entered your hearts. . . The
believers are those who believe in God and His Messenger, then have not
doubted, and have struggled with their possessions and their selves in
the way of God; those — thev are the truthful ones.'(49:14-15)

The primary shahadah is made up of two elements: the first is the nafy
("negation"): la ilaha ("there is no god"). The second is called the
ithbat ("affirmation"): Allah. Between them is a bridge, illa, which is
a word made up of a conditional (in, "if") and a negation (la, "not").
The conditional "side" of the bridge illa faces the negating nafy, and
the negation "side" of the illa faces the affirming ithbat. Thus it says
that "there is no reality if it is not the Absolute Reality, God"; its
juxtaposition of "if and two negatives is a kind of magical or
miraculous pathway out of the world towards that which can never be
negated, Allah.

The first shahadah casts man into an endless ocean, that of the Eternal,
the Tremendous. The second, Muhammadun rasulu-llah, in which Muhammad is at once Prophet, revelation and creation, is a vessel coming from the unique Reality, and thereby existing through It, which saves man from drowning in the infinite depths of the Absolute."
