Unicode Arabic

Some time ago while browsing Wikipedia I stumbled upon Basmala and found out about the character ﷽ (U+FDFD ARABIC LIGATURE BISMILLAH AR-RAHMAN AR-RAHEEM).

Perusing the unicode block containing the character, I've learned about

ﷲ U+FDF2 ARABIC LIGATURE ALLAH ISOLATED FORM
ﷴ U+FDF4 ARABIC LIGATURE MOHAMMAD ISOLATED FORM
ﷶ U+FDF6 ARABIC LIGATURE RASOUL ISOLATED FORM

This prompts the question: what is the minimum number of Unicode characters necessary to write the whole Shahada?

(I see all characters in this post thanks to Unifont).
