Default Help for Arabic gold writtings on pedang

Dear All,
Again, i request for your help concerning a some writtings on a pedang blade.
The blade is mine actually, but not in my possession for now. The blade is fully inlaid of 14k gold, and i wanted to ask you some help concerning the traduction. The scabbard is probably 800 silver.
I will give you the photos i have.
If there is trouble for some parts, i will give better photos when i get it.
Thanks in advance,
Julien.

They are repetitions of the shahada, the profession of faith -

la ilah illa allah muhammad rasul allah

"There is no god but God, Muhammad is the Messenger of God"

Some also contain the pious phrase

la ilah illa allah al-malik al-haqq al-mubin

"There is no god but God, the King, the Truth, the Manifest."

Thanks a lot kwiatek, your traduction help me a lot ! The writtings are the same on both side ? It's really difficult to see the variation for uninitiated...
Thanks Marius !
