Tawheed

What is meant by Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah, Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah, and Tawheed al-Asmaa, was-Sifaat wadh-Dhaat?

Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah is the tawheed of Allaah with respect to his Actions such as creating, providing, giving life and causing death and so on. Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah is singling out Allaah with worship such as prayer, fasting, pilgrimage, charity, making an oath, slaughter and so on. Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Sifaat is that you describe Allaah with whatever He described Himself with and whatever His Messenger (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) described Him with, and that you name Him with whatever He named Himself or whatever His Messenger (sallAllaahu `alayhi wa sallam) named Him with, without resemblance (to the creation), or distortion (with false interpretation), or negation.

موقف المسلم من الفرق

: ( 9772 ) السؤال الثاني من الفتوى رقم

س2: لقد ظهرت الآن فرق كثيرة مثل: فرق الصوفية المتعددة: الشاذلية ، والإبراهيمية ، والقاديانية .. إلخ. فما موقف الإسلام من هذه الفرق؟ وما موقفنا نحن كمسلمين نحوها ونحو ما ينشره أتباعها من أفكار فاسدة تسيء إلى الدين الإسلامي؟

ج2: نقرهم على ما وافقوا فيه كتاب الله وسنة رسوله صلى الله عليه وسلم وننكر عليهم ما خالفوا فيه الكتاب والسنة.

وبالله التوفيق. وصلى الله على نبينا محمد، وآله وصحبه وسلم.

What is Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah?

It is to single out Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, with all types of worship, inwardly and outwardly, through speech and action. And to negate worship from everything besides Allaah, no matter who or what it is. As He, the Most High, said,“And your Lord has decreed that you should worship none but Him.” (al-Israa’: 23)

Allaah, the Most High, says, “Worship Allaah and join none with Him (in worship).” (an-Nisaa’: 36)

Allaah, the Most High, says, “Verily! I am Allaah! La ilaaha illa ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform as-salaat for My remembrance.” (Ta-Ha: 14)

What is Tawheed al-Asmaa was-Sifaat?

It is to have imaan in the Most Perfect Names and Lofty Attributes that Allaah described Himself with in His Book and that which His Messenger (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) described him with, and conveying them as they have been reported without asking how. And Allaah, the Most High, has mentioned affirmation of His Names and Attributes along with negation of asking how they are in many places in His Book.

Such as His, the Most High, saying, “He (Allaah) knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them (in the Hereafter) but they will never compass anything of His knowledge.” (Ta-Ha: 110)

He, the Most High, said, “There is nothing like Him; and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer.” (ash-Shuraa: 11)

He, the Most High, said, “No vision can grasp Him, but He grasps all vision. He is al-Latif (the Most Kind), well acquainted with all things.” (al-An’aam: 103)

And at-Tirmidhee reported from Ubay ibn Ka’ab that the mushrikeen said to the Messenger of Allaah, when he spoke about their deities, “Tell us about the ancestors of your Lord.” So Allaah, the Most High, revealed, “Say, “He is Allaah, (the) One. Allaah the Self-Sufficient Master, Whom all creatures need.” (al-Ikhlaas: 1-2) The One who, “Begets not, nor was He begotten.” (al-Ikhlaas: 3) This is because nothing is born except that it dies and nothing dies except that it is inherited, and verily Allaah, the Most High, does not die and is not inherited, “And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (al-Ikhlaas: 4) He mentioned that there is no one like or similar to Him.
