As Salamu Alaikum

bismillah4


All praise is due to Allah,we praise Him, seek His Help and forgiveness; we repent to Him and seek refuge in Allah from the evils of our own slaves and from our wicked deeds . Whomsoever has been guided by Allaah , non can misguided and whomsoever has been misguided by Allaah non can guide him. I bear witness that there is no true god worthy or being worshipped except Allaah alone, without a partner or associate. I further bare witness that Mohammed (Salla Allaah Aleihi Wasallam)(1) is Allaah true slave and Messenger ; may Allaah bestow His peace and Blessings on Muhammed (Salla Allaah Aleihi Wasallam), upon his good and pure family , and upon his noble companions and those who follow their path.

It proceeds then: that the knowledge about Tawheed(2) constitutes the most noble and necessitated knowledge, because it represents the knowledge about Allah , His right upon His bondsmen . This knowledge is the key for the way to Allaah , and it is the foundation for His legislation. That is why there is a consensus amongst all the messengers to invite people to Tawheed . Allaah تعالى(3) says:

( و ما أرسلنا من قبلك من رسول إلا نوحى إليه أنه لا إله إلا أنا فأعبدون)


And we did not send any Messenger before you (O Mohammed) but We inspired him (saying(: Lailaha illa Ana {none has the right to be worshipped but I (Allah)},so worship Me (alone and no one else).( Qur’aan 21:25)(4)

Allaah bears witness on His Wahdaniyyah: being the only true God that deserves to be worshipped alone and who has no coequal in Himself as well as in His Names and Attributes .The angles and people of knowledge also testify for His Wahdaniyyah :


( شهد الله أنه لا إله إلا هو و الملائكة و أولو العلم قائما بالقسط لا إله إلا هو العزيز الحكيم) ( آل عمران ،18)



Allaah bears witness that La illah illa Huwah ( none has Wright to worshiped but He,) and the angles , and those having knowledge (also give this witness); ( He is always) maintaining His creation in Justice . La illah illa Huwa , the All-Mighty, the All-Wise.(Qura’an 3:18)


Given this acknowledgement of the rank of Taweed, it is therefore incumbent upon every Muslim to give proper consideration to this matter through learning, understanding, education, and conviction, in order for him to establish his Deen (5)on a sound foundation, confidence and submission that would give him the good fortune of sharing it’s fruits and results.

Introduction Div11


(1)Salla Allaah Aleihi Wasallam : The Salaah and Salaam of Allaah be upon his prophet Mohammed . The Salaah of Allaah upon his prophet Mohammed is His praise of the prophet to the angles who are close to (but below) to Allaah , the most high , who arose abode His ‘Arsh ( Throne) which is above the seven skies. The angles also praise him” Salla Allaah Aleihi Wasallam” The Salaam is Allaah’s safeguard and of the prophet from the deficiencies and kind of evils . When the Muslim says” Salla Allaah Aleihi Wasallam” , they invokes Allaah to grant His praise and security to the prophet Mohammed .See Ibnul Alqyyaim’s Jalaa ‘ul Afhaam, p.128. Published by Daar Ibn Katheer , Damascus, and Maktabat Daat At-Turaath, Al-Madeenah , 1409H/1988.

(2) Tawheed - is maintaining the belief that Allaah is the only true God worthy of worship and that He is the true and only Rabb of every thing and that He is unique in His Divine Names,Attributes and Actions.(TN)


(3) تعالى : Ta’aalaa : Supremely Exalted id He. He is Exalted in His Thaat (Essence) and in His Attributes. (TN)

(5) Deen : Is more comprehensive in it’s meaning than the western concept of “religion” . Every aspect of life subscribes to the revelation from Allaah. Therefore, Deen covers life in all of its various stages and complexities. (TN)
