    The shahada is only one part; laa ilaha illa Allah. There is never a second part to it. see Q 3.18 for clarity.

    Muhammad rasullullah is not a shahada in the Quran but a nominal verse as all other verses. see Quran 48.29 for clarity.

    “Since the Qur’an contains the first part of the shahada in only two places (Sura 37:35; 47:19),” – there is nothing as the first part of the shahada. The shahada is the shahada.
    The Bible is not more Islamic, rather it is the basis of Islam.

    Maybe you need view Islam from the correct Angle.

    Not only does including the first part of the shahada affirm Muslims in Islam, it exposes the professing Christians who use such versions and quote/read aloud these occurrences to the charge of “converting” to Islam and then being treated as apostates.
