The Names and Attributes of Allaah

Ocak 13, 2007

Shaikh `Abdul-`Aziz Bin Baz

The Shaykh-hafidhahullaah-said: (1)

From Eemaan (faith) in Allaah is to have eemaan in those of His Asmaa’ul-Husnaa (Beautiful names) and Sifaatul-Ulyaa (Lofty Attributes) that occur in His Great Book and that have been affirmed by His trustworthy Messenger (sallallaahu `alaihi wasallam) -without tahreef (distorting the wording or the meaning), tateel (divesting or denying the Attributes), takyeef(asking how) or tamtheel (resembling Allaah to any of His creation). Rather,it is obligatory to leave them as they came, without takyeef (asking how) or tamtheel (resembling Allaah to any of His creation). Along with this, it is also obligatory to have eemaan in the meaning that Allaah-the Mighty and Majestic-has been described with, in a way which befits Him: without resembling Him to His creation in any of His attributes.

The Origins of Shirk

Ocak 13, 2007

Shaikh Naasir ud-Din al-Albaani – Tahdheerus-Saajid min Ittikhaadhil-Quboori Masaajid

From that which has been established in the Sharee’ah (prescribed law) is that mankind was – in the beginning – a single nation upn true Tawheed, then Shirk (directing any part or form of worship, or anything else that is solely the right of Allah, to other than Allah) gradually overcame them. The basis for this is the saying of Allah – the Most Blessed, the Most high:

“Mankind was one Ummah, then Allah sent prophets bringing good news and warnings.” (Surah Baqarah 2:213)

Ibn ‘Abbas – radiallaahu ‘anhu – said:

“Between Nooh (Noah) and Adam were ten generations, all of them were upon Sharee’ah (law) of the truth, then they differed. So Allah sent prophets as bringers of good news and as warners”(1)

An Explanation of the Truth of Monotheism

Ocak 13, 2007

Shaikh Salih al-Fawzaan

Praise be to Allah, the Almighty, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Universe, and peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, last of the Prophets, and upon all those who adhere to his example until the Day of Judgement.

Faith is the foundation upon which the whole structure of nations is based. Therefore, the progress of each nation is dependent upon the maintenance of its faith and ideology. Thus, all Prophets (peace be upon them) have called for true faith. Every Prophet told his people from the very beginning, “Worship Allah, the Almighty. You have no other god but Him”.(1) “We assuredly sent amongst every people an Apostle, (with the command), Serve Allah and eschew evil”.(2) This is because Allah the Almighty created all people to worship Him alone and set up no associate to Him. “I have only created jinns and men that they may worship Me”.(3)
