What do you mean exactly by "instituitionalized clergy"?


The religious system in Islam starts with:


Allah - God - The Lord, Creator, Maker etc


His Prophets / messengers - Jesus, Moses, Jacob etc


The final Messenger - Prophet Muhammed Sallahu Alayhee Wa Sallah - upon whos actions, sayings, deeds, reprimands, warnings, statements etc have all been recorded in authentic traditions of Ahadeeth in Bukharee, Tirmidhi, An-Nasai, Abu Dawood etc


God's word, the Quraan and Ahadeeh (collection of Prophet Muhammed's sayings, actions etc) form 2 major elements in Islam which a Muslim (believer in Islamic Monotheism) must testify in and endeavour to follow... which is where the Shahadaah comes in.
