Chapter 2: The necessity of learning the Islamic Aqeedah

  • Obligation to learn the islamic aqeedah – understand its meaning and what it is built upon 
  • Understand what opposes the correct aqeedah, and what rectifies your deficiencies 
  • S. Muhammad: 19
  • Knowledge rectifies your intentions
  • The need to understand the meaning of laa ilaaha illa Allah and acting upon it
  • Muhammad (ﷺ) became a Prophet at the age of 40  and for more than a decade he taught tawheed
  • It is obligatory that a person focuses on learning about aqeedah
  • Learning about people of bidah (innovation)
  • In the Quran there are many verses about aqeedah especially the Meccan surahs
  • S. Fatihah: Ibnul-Qayyim says: know that this surah it incorporates the core objectives, principles. Three names of Allah. Everything is done for the sake of Allah. 
    • Iyyaka na’budu – our worship only to Allah
    • Iyyaka nastain – we ask Allah only
    • Seeking guidance from Allah – “guide us to the straight path”
    • Recompense of the servants, day of judgement – hell or paradise
  • The whole quran includes both types of tawheed: 
    • Tawheed with regards to knowledge and information (tawheed al-rububiyyah and Asmaa was-sifat)
    • Tawheed of actions (tawheed al-uluhiyyah)
  • Many people read the Qur’an but don’t understand the correct aqeedah, instead they follow their forefathers
  • There are three types of tawheed: the salaf mentioned it as well (Abu Hanifa etc.)
    • These categories are taken from the Quran (S. Fatihah, S. Nas)
  • “Hakimiyyah” is a subcategory of tawheed al-rububiyyah, not an individual type of tawheed

Chapter 3: Preaching the Muslim Aqeedah

  • Calling the people to the correct aqeedah
  • S. Baqarah: 256-257
  • All Messengers and Prophets (may peace be upon them all) began their mission to tell people to worship Allah alone and stay away from the false deities (S. Hud: 50, S. Nahl: 36)
  • Rectify the aqeedah in the people
  • Firm foundation – correct aqeedah
  • Muadh ibn Jabal (may Allah be pleased with him) was sent to Yemen to call people to the correct aqeedah (tawheed)
  • For 13 years the Prophet (ﷺ) preached tawheed (Oneness of Allah) in Mecca, before teaching about zakah, jihad, salah, hajj and the halal and Haraam rulings (drinking, usury, adultery)
  • The statement of Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdulwahhab

Introduction: Importance of Aqeedah

  • What is this course about?
  • Why is this important?

Understanding Aqeedah and Tawhid

  • Allah, subhaanahu wata’aalaa, told us that he has sent every messenger with a specific message, what was it?
  • Allah says: “And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming): “Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghut (all false deities, etc.i. e. do not worship Taghut besides Allah).” Then of them were some whom Allah guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth).” [Surah An-Nahl (The Bee) verse 36]
  • What does “laa ilaaha illallaah” mean?
  • This statement has two components, what are they?
    • Affirmation
    • Negation
  • Allah says:”Worship Allah and join none with Him in worship, and do good to parents, kinsfolk, orphans, Al-Masakin (the poor), the neighbour who is near of kin, the neighbour who is a stranger, the companion by your side, the wayfarer (you meet), and those (slaves) whom your right hands possess. Verily, Allah does not like such as are proud and boastful;”[Surah An-Nisa (The Women) verse 36]
  • Example of the importance of affirmation and negation
  • Affirmation and negation makes something special and unique

The Pre-Islamic Polytheists

  • The polytheists (mushrikeen) at the time of the Prophet (ﷺ) believed in Allah
  • So why were they not Muslims? Why did they oppose the Messenger of Allah?

Aspects of Tawheed
