Allah Almighty ordered all his servants to enter Islam and adhering to it and warned them of disobeying him. Also he sent His messenger to call to this. Allah told us that the one who follows him is the rightly guided and the one who turns away from his call goes astray. He warned us in many ayahs of apostasy, polytheism and disbelief.

Tawheed/Tauheed/Tauhid of Allah’s Most Beautiful Names and Lofty Attributes : The Belief of Ahl al-Sunnah wal’ Jama’ah.

Among the subjects that have not been adequately covered in the English language, perhaps the most important of them is the one covered in the pages of this book.

The author presents the belief of Ahl al-Sunnah wal-Jama’ah, which is the creed of the first few generations of Muslims and those who followed in their footsteps. Besides outlining the principles and foundations of this creed he also highlights some of the foreign ideas and deviant concepts that have crept into the hearts and minds. Thestyle in which this book has been written relates more to a textbook than to a book for casual reading. The author has carefully structured the book, divided it into clearly headed sections and provided all the necessary definitions and explanations that will facilitate a clear understanding of this immensely important branch of knowledge.

About the Author:

He graduated from the Islamic University of Madinah and subsequently obtained his Masters (1406H) and Doctorate (1410H) at the University, specializing in Aqidah.

The Beginning And The End

The origin and creation of the universe is an issue which has concerned man throughout the ages, especially non-Muslims; since Islam has clarified and expounded all matters that need clarification. Therefore, Muslims are not puzzled or confused, (concerning the phenomenon that occurs in the universe) and they do not invent theories and hypothesis regarding these things, which may be discarded with the advent of a new theory.

We firmly believe that whatever is mentioned in the Qur’an and authentic Sunnah regarding these issues is the truth which all theories must conform to. All that differs with it would indeed be proven false.

Allah (SWT) the Creator of the seen and unseen worlds, is not in need of His creation; rather, His creation is in need of Him. Allah (SWT) says:

(O mankind! It is you who stand in need of Allah, but Allah is Rich (Free of all wants and needs), worthy of all praise. * If He wills, He could destroy you and bring about a new creation. * And that is not hard for Allah.) [35:15-7]

You alone would benefit from your belief and righteous deeds. Allah (SWT) says:

(If you disbelieve (then that is for your own harm), (for) Allah is not in need of you. (But) He is not pleased with disbelief for His slaves. And if you are grateful (by being believers), He is pleased therewith for you.) [39:7] Continue reading

Belief In The Angels: And Its Effect On The Life Of The Ummah

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/belief-in-the-angels-and-its-effect-on-the-life-of-the-ummah.jpg

Shaykh Saalih ibn Fawzaan Al-Fawzaan
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 25 | Size: 1 MB

This is a complete translation of a short treatise called, ‘al-Eemaan bil-Malaa’ikah wa Atharuhu fee Hayaat-il- Ummah’. Although this treatise is short in size, it provides many proofs and evidences for the descriptions, duties and  general characterisitics of the angels.

Indeed, Eemaan (Faith) is a great matter, since it is the foundation upon which success in this life and the next rests on. So it is one of the most important levels of the Religion, for when the angel, Jibreel, came to the Prophet (PBUH) in the presence of his Companions, he asked him about Islaam, Eemaan, and Ihsaan, saying: “O Muhammad! Inform me about Islaam.” The Prophet (PBUH) replied: “Islaam is to testify that there is no deity that has the right to be worshipped except Allaah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah; to establish the prayer; to give the Zakaat; to fast in Ramadaan; and to perform the Hajj to the House (Ka’bah) if you are able to.”

So he explained Islaam as being the implementation of these five pillars: (!) The two testimonies of Faith; (2) Establishing the Prayer; (3) Giving the Zakaat; (4) Fasting in Ramadaan; (5) Pilgrimage to the Ka’bah. So the angel Jibreel told him: “You have spoken the truth. Now inform me about Eemaan.” The Prophet (PBUH) said: “It is to believe in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day, and to believe in Al-Qadar – the good of it and the bad of it.” So he  explained that Eemaan was to believe in these six things: Belief in Allaah, His Angels, His Books, His Messengers, the Last Day and Al-Qadar – the good of it and the bad of it.

Jibreel continued: “Inform me about Ihsaan.” So the Prophet (PBUH) responded: “Ihsaan is to worship Allaah as if you see Him. But if you don’t see Him, then verily, He sees you.” So he (PBUH) clarified that Ihsaan consists of one pillar, which is to worship Allaah as if you see Him. But even though you don’t see Him, verily, He sees you. These are the three levels of the Religion: Islaam, then Eemaan, then Ihsaan. Each one of these levels has its own set of pillars.

A pillar is the part upon which something stands on, so (for example) the pillar of a house refers to the part upon which that house is established. So Eemaan (Faith) rests upon six of these pillars. If one of these pillars is missing, a person is no longer a believer, possessing Faith, since he lacks one of the pillars of Eemaan. Continue reading

Jihad In The Qur’an And The Sunnah

Shaykh Abdullah Humaid

After the testimony of Oneness of Allaah swt and the Messengership of Muhammad , with firm belief and True Faith, one has to perform the acts of worship as ordained by Islaam. Among the obligatory acts of worship are offering the Salat (prayers), observing the Saum (fasts), paying the Zakat and performing the Hajj (pilgrimage to Makka). Besides these acts of worship, a Muslim is directed to abstain from evil deeds and to perform good deeds, so that he may achieve success in the Hereafter, as well as, in the life of this world. But, as regards the reward and blessing, there is one deed which is very great in comparison to all the acts of worship and all the good deeds-and that is Jihad! Jihad is regarded as the best thing, one can offer voluntarily. It is superior to non-obligatory prayers, fasting, Zakat, Umra and Hajj as mentioned in the Qur’aan and the Ahadith of the Prophet . The benefits of Jihad are of great extent and large in scope, while its effects are far-reaching and wide-spreading as regards Islaam and the Muslims. For an individual Muslim, Jihad includes all acts of worship and all aspects of belief- thus bringing him greatest reward and vast blessings; and for the Muslim nation, Jihad provides all kinds of successes in respect of prosperity and dignity, victory and glory-thus bringing magnificence and splendour. In this article, Sheikh ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid, ex-Chief Justice of Saudi Arabia, has presented Jihad in the light of Qur’aan and Sunna. Never before such an article was seen, describing Jihad in its true colours-so heart evoking and encouraging! May Allaah bless him with all His Blessings for all times. Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan, the translator of the Noble Qur’aan and the Sahih Al-Bukhari, has translated this article from Arabic to the English language with all its fervor and feelings.

The God That Never Was

https://islamfuture.files.wordpress.com/2010/06/the-god-that-never-was.jpg

Ahmed Deedat
Language: English | Format: PDF | Pages: 19 | Size: 1 MB

Islam is the only religion which teaches the existence of a PERFECT God. A perfect God means that there is no sharer in His Nature and His Attributes: “Say: He is God, the One and Only; God, the Eternal, Absolute; He begetteth not, nor is He begotten; and there is none like unto Him.” (Quran, 112:1-4)

There has appeared a man in Benoni. He is not qualified in theology, but is fondly cherishing the self-delusion that he is an apostle of Christ, appointed by God to convert Muslims to Christianity. Because he is a lawyer by profession, he is adept at juggling with words and quoting the Holy Quran totally out of context without knowing a word of Arabic. He wants Muslims to believe that Jesus was also a God, a belief that is abhorrent to us, because it is an antithesis of the Absolute perfection of Allah Subhaanahoo Wa Ta ‘Aala! Thus intent upon reversing the process of Truth, which is: “And say: The Truth has come and falsehood vanished. Surely falsehood is ever bound to vanish.” (Quran, 17:81). In this he will never succeed because the process of Truth is irreversible. Continue reading

Allâh (SWT) chose for accompanying him and taking knowledge from him a people who are the best of this nation, which is itself the best of all nations. Allâh (SWT) honored them by allowing them to ac-company His Prophet (saw). He favored them in this worldly life by giving them the opportunity to see him and hear his hadîth directly from his noble mouth….This is the bounty of Allâh which He bestows upon whom He wills, and Allâh possesses the great-est of bounties. Indeed the Companions conveyed from Allâh’s Messenger (saw) that which he was sent with from guidance in the most complete and perfect form. They will have the greatest of rewards due to their companionship of Allâh’s Messenger (saw), their fighting in Jihâd along his side, and their noble actions in spreading Islâm.’ Continue reading
