  43. 43. The term “ “ pronounce ‘SHIRK’ – means “partner; associate; one who shares; etc.” Therefore in Islam we refer this to the sin of : “associating or ascribing to Allah, with others as partners .” NOTE: The sin of "SHIRK “ is in the ‘ belief ’, not merely the ‘outward action.’All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  44. 44. It is only “ SHIRK” when a person: [1] who in his belief, regards other being or entity in creation, or imaginary ‘beings’ conjured in his mind, etc. to be also ‘Divine’; or [2] belief that they (these creations) have a share in ‘Divinity ’ with Allah in His exclusive aspects; in His exclusive attributes; or His ‘union or in-dwelling’ or ‘incarnation’ in them; etc. or [3] to regard these as being independent of Allah.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  45. 45. NOTE: It is indeed true when a learned scholar said: “ “ SHIRK is an intellectual sin.” Just like TAUHEED, it deals primarily with ‘thoughts or cognition’; i.e. what a person ‘knows and believes’ regarding God or the ‘Divine’ - (the doctrine or theological concept that person holds in his mind).All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  46. 46. NOTE: A person’s belief may generally be presumed to be adhering to the creed (religion) which he professes to follow. Thus, unlike non-Muslims, all Muslims are to be regarded as a “Muwaheed”, (upholding TAUHEED) unless proven to be otherwise. This is because he begins by denying any other to be god before acknowledging Allah, Who Alone is God – One and Unique without partner.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  47. 47. NOTE: One of the primary cause leading to SHIRK is ignorance of the true knowledge of this DEEN of Islam in matters of AQEEDAH. Allah s.w.t. warns us:All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  48. 48. NOTE: One of the primary cause leading to SHIRK is ignorance of the true knowledge of this DEEN of Islam in matters of AQEEDAH. Allah s.w.t. warns us: "And do not follow (pursue) anything of which thou hast no knowledge: verily (thy) hearing and sight and heart - all of them - will be called to account for it (on Judgement Day)." (Qur’an: Bani Israil : 17 :36)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
  49. 49. NOTE: Thus, Muslims must avoid blindly imitating others in matters of belief (AQEEDAH) and devotional practices related to belief, without basis in Islamic knowledge. These kinds of belief, which are untruths to be avoided are termed: - “khurafat” : superstitions; myths; fables; etc. -“Takhayyulat” (pl. From “takhayyul”) : imaginations; whims, delusions; fantasies; etcAll Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2011)
