The Tawheedology Book is a Tawheed made easy book which gives the Muslim bright knowledge in regards of his creed and his conviction, most of its information is brought to you from the book called “Attawheed Al-Muyassar” narrated by Sheikh Abdullah bin Ahmad Al-Huwail, and presented by Sheikh Abdullah Al-Jabrain & Sheikh Khalid Al-Muslih.
For everything being in the skies and on the surface of this Earth is a purpose from the one Creator, and for us living here there are reasons, one major and many minor, the major reason is followed by minor ones, the minor reasons like sleeping, eating, and working are actions that we must take to enhance our ability to fulfill the major one, the major reason is obligated on all mankind, and that is to worship the All-mighty Allaah as he confirmed in his Glorious book:
وَمَا خَلَقْتُ الْجِنَّ وَالْإِنْسَ إِلَّا ليعبدون
And I (Allah) created not the jinns and humans except they should worship me (Alone).
Hence if Allaah created us for that cause, then he must have set forward some foundations of submission so that we can worship him in the manner that pleases him, to this matter I ask myself, is it possible that one may worship Allaah along with other gods?
Logically speaking, I positively see that it is possible indeed, but…is that what the All-mighty Allaah demands? Does he command man to worship an idol or another man or is that a whisper from the devil’s plan? Indeed this is something that we sure need to understand.
Come with me to the Prophet Muhammad’s invitation to Islaam, when he was sent to the pagans in Makkah to deliver the message, he asked them whether they believe in Allaah or not, they said we do believe in Allaah, he then asked them, if so, then why do you worship other gods besides him? They replied: we only worship these gods so that they can get us closer to Allaah.
These people made an approach, to worship false gods to get closer to Allaah who is closer to them than their veins in their throats. Yes Allaah is nearer to you than your Jugular vein is; do you know what your Jugular vein is? The Jugular vein is a vein in your neck that plays a major role in your logical sense.
The All-mighty says:
وَلَقَدْ خَلَقْنَا الإِنْسَانَ وَنَعْلَمُ مَا تُوَسْوِسُ بِهِ نَفْسُهُ وَنَحْنُ أَقْرَبُ إِلَيْهِ مِنْ حَبْلِ الْوَرِيدِ
And indeed we have created man, and we know what his own self whispers to him. And we are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). – Qāf, V.16
But keep in mind that Allaah is not physically that close to you because he is literally above his throne, but he is that close to you only by his knowledge. So the major reason is to worship Allaah by singling him out, and that is where the word Tawheed stands. Tawheed in Arabic language is the source of making something single.
- If you were to say that no one shall exit the mosque except for Ahmad, then you are singling out Ahmad in exiting the mosque.
Hence, after knowing this it becomes an obligation upon us to single out the Allpowerful Allaah in the following three categories:
Tawheed Al-Asmaa’ Wassefat. Continue reading
