The Ahdaaf (Objectives) of Islamic Aqeedah


Linguistically, Al-Hadaf ( Pl. Ahdaaf )(75) has several meanings to it, amongst which is “ An object of aim at which one shoots or throws” or “ an object of want and of desire ; an end which one seeks or intends to attain”.

The Ahdaf of the Islamic ‘Aqeedah are the noble objectives abd purposes established as result of adhering to it. They are numerous and diverse. Amongst them are the following:

First: Establishing the Sincere Intention and Worship to Allaah تعالى Alone , because He is the Creator Who has no partner . Thus the intention and worship must be only to Him Alone.

Second: Liberating the mind and thought from the irrational and chaotic loss resulting from the heart having one of this Aqeedah because in such state the heart is either completely devoid of evey creed , worshipping what is materialistically perceptible only, or lost amidst misguidnce of the ( corrupt) beliefs and superstitions.

قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه و سلم " المؤمن القوى خير و أحب إلى الله من المؤمن الضعيف و فى كل خير أحرص على ما ينفعك و إستعن بالله و لا تعجز و إن أصابك شىء فلا تقل لو إنى فعلت كان كذا و كذا و لكن قل قدر الله و ماشاء فعل ، فإن لو تفتح عمل الشيطان"- رواه مسلم


“ A strong believer is better and is moe lovable to Allah than a weak believer, and there is good in every one, ( but) cherish that which gives you benefits ( in the Hereafter) and seek help from Allaah and do not lose heart and if anything befalls you (calamity , misfortune, trouble) do not say:” If I had not done tht , it would not have happened so nd so , but say:” Allaah did that what he had ordained to do because ‘if’ is an opening for Satan’s actions (76)

Sixth: Establishing a strong Ummah that will pay any price in order to consolidate its Deen and reinforce its foundation, paying no attention for what my befall upon it in the course of achieving this goal. In this regard Allaah تعالى says:

( إنما المؤمنون الذين آمنوا بالله و رسوله ثم لم يرتابوا و جاهدوا بأموالهم و أنفسهم فى سبيل الله أولئك هم الصادقون) ( الحجرات ،15)


Only those are the believers who have believed in Allaah and His Messengers, afterward doubt not must strive with their lives for the Cause of Allaah. Those!they are the truthful .( Qura’an 49:15)


Seventh: Achieving Happiness in this life and in the Hereafter by reforming the individuals and the groups and seeking the reward and means of attaining honor. Allah says about this:

( من عمل صالحا من ذكر ا و أنثى و هو مؤمن فلنحيينه حياة طيبة و لنجزينهم أجرهم بأحسن ما كانوا يعملون) ( النحل،97)


Whoever works righteousness , whether male of female , while he ( or she) is a true believer ( in Tawheed) verily , to him We will give good life ( in this world), and We shall pay them certainly a reward in proportion to the best of what they used to do .( i.e Al-Jannah ) . ( Qura’an16:97)

The above are some of the objective of the Islaamic Aqeedah . I ask Allaah تعالى to make it achievable for me and for all the Muslims.
