    Without any doubt whatsover

    "His guilt was proved beyond a shadow of a doubt."
    "After being the top scorer in the league, his ability as a football player was proved beyond a shadow of a doubt."

     

    Without a shadow of a doubt = it is absolutely, without question, certain, it will definitely happen!

    "Yes dear, without a shadow of a doubt, i will make it to our dinner tonight."
    " Miss dad's birthday party? No way, without a shadow of a doubt, I will be there."
    "Do not call the repairman, I know how to fix it and i will. It's beyond a shadow of a doubt."

    It is often used because past history indicates the person might not actually arrive or make the " thing" happen.
