Answer

The two sentences ‘lailaaha illallah and¬†Muhammadur rasullullah‘ both come in the Qur’an though separately. There is no harm if someone was to recite them both together as they are still factually correct, and proclaiming the oneness of Allah and declaring the Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and give him peace) to be Allah’s messenger is part of our faith.

It maybe the case that these exact statements do not come in hadith in the exact formulation as quoted but there is no harm in that as both statements are mentioned in the Qur’an. Also, there are very similar phrases taught to us by the Prophet (may Allah bless him and give him peace) with the addition of some words either at the start such as ‘ashhadu’ or in the middle such as ‘anna’ or ‘abduhu’ etc. One will insha Allah be rewarded for whichever form they read as they are all forms of remembering Allah the Almighty.
