Tawheed 4

  1. 1. ISLAMIC MONOTHEISM<br />TAWHEED<br />BASIC TEACHINGS OF ISLAM<br />Part-4<br />
  2. 2. Worshipping, Seeking Help from or Seeking Help through, the DEAD is a MAJOR SIN in Islam <br />
  3. 3. It is only those who listen (to the Message of Prophet Muhammad SAW), will respond (benefit from it), but as for the dead (disbelievers), Allâh will raise them up, then to Him they will be returned (for their recompense). (6:36).<br />Verily, you cannot make the dead to hear (i.e. benefit them and similarly the disbelievers), nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they flee, turning their backs. (27:80).<br />
  4. 4. So verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) cannot make the dead to hear (i.e. the disbelievers, etc.), nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs, turning away. (35:14)<br />Nor are (alike) the living (believers) and the dead (disbelievers). Verily, Allâh makes whom He will hear, but you cannot make hear those who are in graves. (35:22)<br />
  5. 5. So verily, you (O Muhammad SAW) cannot make the dead to hear (i.e. the disbelievers, etc.), nor can you make the deaf to hear the call, when they show their backs, turning away. (30:52)<br />And who is more astray than one who calls (invokes) besides Allâh, such as will not answer him till the Day of Resurrection, and who are (even) unaware of their calls (invocations) to them? And when mankind are gathered (on the Day of Resurrection), they (false deities) will become enemies for them and will deny their worshipping. (46:5-6)<br />
  6. 6. On the Day when Allâh will gather the Messengers together and say to them: &quot;What was the response you received (from men to your teaching)? They will say: &quot;We have no knowledge, verily, only You are the All Knower of all that is hidden (or unseen, etc.).“ (5:109)<br />And the Day whereon We shall gather them all together, then We shall say to those who did set partners in worship with Us: &quot;Stop at your place! You and your partners (whom you had worshipped in the worldly life).&quot; then We shall separate them, and their (Allâh&apos;s so-called) partners shall say: &quot;It was not us that you used to worship.“ (10:28-29)<br />
  7. 7. Those whom they (Al-Mushrikûn[]) invoke besides Allâh have not created anything, but are themselves created. (They are) dead, lifeless, and they know not when they will be raised up. (16:20-21)<br />Until, when death comes to one of them (those who join partners with Allâh), he says: &quot;My Lord! Send me back, &quot;So that I may do good in that which I have left behind!&quot; No! It is but a word that he speaks, and behind them is Barzakh (a barrier) until the Day when they will be resurrected. <br />
  8. 8. If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad SAW) like Him Who is the All Knower (of each and everything) (35:14)<br />And who is more astray than one who calls (invokes) besides Allâh, such as will not answer him till the Day of Resurrection, and who are (even) unaware of their calls (invocations) to them? And when mankind are gathered (on the Day of Resurrection), they (false deities) will become enemies for them and will deny their worshipping. (46:5-6)<br />
  9. 9. Idol worship is equated with the worship of the dead. In almost all communities, idols have been erected to remember the DEAD, similar to our building tombs over the graves of the righteous.<br />
  10. 10. And (remember) when Ibrâhim (Abraham) said to his father Azar: &quot;Do you take idols as âlihâ(gods)? Verily, I see you and your people in manifest error. (6:74)<br />And We brought the Children of Israel (with safety) across the sea, and they came upon a people devoted to some of their idols (in worship). They said: &quot;O Mûsa (Moses)! Make for us an ilâhan (a god) as they have âliha (gods).&quot; He said: &quot;Verily, you are a people who know not (the Majesty and Greatness of Allâh and what is obligatory upon you, i.e. to worship none but Allâh Alone, the One and the Only God of all that exists).“ [Mûsa (Moses) added:] &quot;Verily, these people will be destroyed for that which they are engaged in (idols-worship). And all that they are doing is in vain.“ (7:138-139)<br />
  11. 11. Verily, those whom you call upon besides Allâh are slaves like you. So call upon them and let them answer you if you are truthful. Have they feet wherewith they walk? Or have they hands wherewith they hold? Or have they eyes wherewith they see? Or have they ears wherewith they hear? Say (O Muhammad SAW): &quot;Call your (so-called) partners (of Allâh) and then plot against me, and give me no respite! &quot;Verily, my Walî (Protector, Supporter, and Helper, etc.) is Allâh Who has revealed the Book (the Qur&apos;ân), and He protects (supports and helps) the righteous.“ (7:194-196)<br />
  12. 12. &quot;You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allâh has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allâh. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not. (12:40)<br />O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully): Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allâh, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (22:73)<br />
  13. 13. When he (Ibrahim) said to his father and his people: &quot;What are these images, to which you are devoted?“ They said:&quot;We found our fathers worshipping them.“ He said: &quot;Indeed you and your fathers have been in manifest error.“ They said: &quot;Have you brought us the truth, or are you one of those who play about?“ He said: &quot;Nay, your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the earth, Who created them and of that I am one of the witnesses. &quot;And by Allâh, I shall plot a plan (to destroy) your idols after you have gone away and turned your backs.“ So he broke them to pieces, (all) except the biggest of them, that they might turn to it. (21:52-58) (emphasis is ours)<br />
  14. 14. Insha Allah, we will discuss the position of the Prophets of Allah in our next presentation.<br />
  15. 15. To Conclude,<br />A Request…<br />Please forward this to all the believers in your Address Book<br />FOR ...<br />
  16. 16. Ye are the best of peoples, <br /> evolved for mankind, <br /> enjoining what is right, forbidding what is wrong, <br /> and believing in God. …<br />Holy Qur&apos;an 3:110<br />
