  4. 4. • 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 others, as partners .” “falsely setting up or ascribing partners to God from amongst the tangible objects or imaginary things in creation or conceived in the mind, which they regard to be also ‘Divine’ and directing to it, as object of their worship (MA’BUD).”All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  5. 5. Traditionally, it is divided into 2 major categories: [1] SHIRK AL-’AZEEM (AKBAR) “Greater shirk” – an obvious, clear-cut association; the belief in other ‘deities’ , or supernatural force, or beings etc. apart from Allah, believed to be possessing divine powers, or regarded to be independent of Allah.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  6. 6. Traditionally, it is divided into 2 major categories: [2] SHIRK AL-ASHGHAR or KHAFIY “Lesser (small) Shirk” or “Hidden” – it pertains to what a Muslim’s objective, focus or intended reason behind his/her acts of devotional worship, sacrifice, vows, etc. – i.e. what may affect his original intention formulated which, in ‘IBAADAH, it must be ‘sincerely done for Allah’s sake alone.’ (IKHLASw). Example, specifically: ‘Doing or not doing ‘IBADAH only to be seen by people – i.e. showing off, or ostentation -(RIYA’ )All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

ALLAH’S WARNING REGARDING VARIOUS TYPES OF SHIRK “Now if they embark on a boat, they call on Allah (make Du’a), making their devotion sincerely (and exclusively) to Him; but when He had delivered them safely to (dry) land, behold, they give a share (of their worship to others)!” (Qur’an: Ankabut: 29: 65)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  11. 11. ALLAH’S WARNING REGARDING VARIOUS TYPES OF SHIRK “They take their priests and their anchorites to be their lords in derogation of Allah, and (they take as their Lord - Robb) Christ the son of Mary; Yet they were commanded to worship but one Allah: there is no god but He. Praise and glory to Him: (far is He) from that which they ascribe as partner (unto Him)!” (Qur’an: Taubah: 9: 31)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

But those of faith are overflowing in their love for Allah.

  18. 18. ALLAH’S WARNING REGARDING VARIOUS TYPES OF SHIRK “Hence, [O man,] set thy face steadfastly towards the [true] faith, turning away from all that is false, and be not among those who ascribe divinity to aught beside Allah. Thus, do not invoke (DU’A * ), side by side with Allah, anything that can neither benefit thee nor harm thee: for, behold, if thou do it, thou wilt surely be among the evildoers!” (Qur’an : Yunus: : 10: 105-106) * Meaning supplication as in ‘IBADAHAll Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  20. 20. ALLAH’S WARNING REGARDING VARIOUS TYPES OF SHIRK “He is the Ever-Living; there is no deity except Him, so (FAD-’UUHU *) call upon Him, [being] sincere to Him in religion. [All] praise is [due] to Allah, Lord of the worlds. Say, [O Muhammad], "Indeed, I have been forbidden to worship those you call upon (TAD-’UUNA *) besides Allah once the clear proofs have come to me from my Lord, and I have been commanded to submit to the Lord of the worlds."” * Meaning supplication as in ‘IBADAH (Qur’an: Ghafir: 40: 65-66)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  23. 23. Thus these are as in the following: • Shirk – setting up of other independent entities as partners to Allah, as what is done by the pagan idol worshippers. This could be in their believing in that Allah SWT as having partnership in matters of exclusive : [1] Creatorship (KHALIQQIYYAH) [2] Lordship [RUB-BUBIYYAH] Even, by acknowledging a rivalry to Allah – as in some culture who blasphemously places Satan on this pedestal; or the Ahura Mazda versus Angra Mainyu (Good vs Evil) of the Zoroastrian belief; etc.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  24. 24. Thus these are as in the following: • Shirk – of attributing falsehood to concept of Divinity [ULUHIYYAH] - as though ‘Godhead’ can be divisible with their false notion of it being Triune (as in Christian’s doctrine); or believing in the reincarnation or in-dwelling (HULUL /ITTIHAD) of God in creation. • Shirk – attributing Allah with anthropomorphism, conceiving Him as having forms, limited by space, time etc. [SIFAAT - WA - ASMA’] • Shirk - setting up intermediaries and directing worship to it, alleging that they have divine authority to gaining nearness to Allah SWT. • Shirk – exclusive obedience (TA’AT) to others besides Allah SWT alone.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  25. 25. Thus these are as in the following: • Shirk – blindly imitating others in their worship of their MA’BUD (object or entities of which they direct their worship to). • Shirk – in believing that the natural causes (ASBAB), as being absolute and independent of Allah’s control. • Shirk – in doing specific religious devotions (‘IBADAH KHUSUSIYAH) which are to be done solely (sincerely) for Allah SWT – viz. Swolah, fasting, vows, pilgrimage, Du’a, animal sacrifice, etc. but instead done for other purposes e.g. RIYA’, NIFAQ – or done with sinister motive of fulfilling a condition in doing SIHIR (magic / sorcery).All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  26. 26. REMEMBER OUR PROPHET’S CONCERN “Verily, what I fear most that may afflict all of you is the small SHIRK – which is - AR-RIYA’ (showing off or ostentation in ‘ibaadah)” (Hadith reported by Ahmad)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  29. 29. • “From Ibnu ‘Abbas r.a. regarding Allah’s verse : "And they have said (to each other) ‘Abandon not your gods; abandon neither Wadd nor Suwa, neither Yaguth, nor Ya-’uq, nor Nasr―” (Qur’an: Nuh: 70: 23)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  30. 30. • “Ibnu ‘Abbas r.a. said : These (the idols) were named after their righteous (pious) people who had lived after Prophet Nuh a.s. era.” • “After their death, Satan instigated their followers to erect statues at places where they used to worship (Allah), and to then named these statues with their names.”All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  31. 31. • “Which their followers then erected, but they did not worship these statues.” • “When the first generation all died, they were replaced by subsequent generation who were ignorant, and had forgotten the knowledge of the earlier generation. • Thence forth, they began to direct their worship to these idols (thereby, committed SHIRK).All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  32. 32. • Thus, we can discern that the primary cause of SHIRK is ignorance i.e. when they imitated blindly (TAQLEED) rituals in their worship to Allah and blindly follow aspects of belief without knowledge thereby opening themselves to Satan’s entrapment. • Thus we are warned by Allah SWT :All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  53. 53. • Thus a Muslim, having attested to the Kalimah of Tauheed (SHAHADATAIN), he is required to be wary and vigilant by striving to embrace whole-heartedly the ways of Islam, and to shun totally the ways of Satan (the embodiment of this evil is collectively referred to as TAGHUT.)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  60. 60. “Hast thou not turned thy thought to those who were given a portion of the Book? They believe in JIBTI (sorcery, idol) and TAGHUT (Evil ones, devil) and say to the Unbelievers that they are better guided in the (right) way than the Believers!” (Qur’an: Nisa’: 4: 51)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  61. 61. REFLECTION:  Although many may imagine that “TAGHUT ” as some unseen ‘spiritual’ entity – as represented by the source of evil i.e. the devil – yet the reality of “TAGHUT ” is the deviationist teachings of Materialism , which is what ‘idolatry, love of worldly power, lust, greed etc.’ can be categorised under, something so apparent and can be seen.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  62. 62. REFLECTION:  Satan’s deception is to lure mankind away from IIMAN i.e. believing in the UNSEEN ( the Qur’an refer to as “AL-GHAYB” ), the essential fundamental belief of Muslims attaining to TAQWA: “(they are those ) who believe in the Unseen (BIL-GHAYB)” (Qur’an: Baqarah: 2: 3)All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  63. 63. REFLECTION:  Traditionally, in warning Muslims of “SHIRK”, our Muslim teachers identified only the erroneous beliefs – e.g. myths (TAKHAYYUL), superstitions (KHURAFAT), sorcery (SIHIR), etc.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  64. 64. REFLECTION:  Traditionally, in warning Muslims of “SHIRK”, our Muslim teachers identified only the erroneous beliefs – e.g. myths (TAKHAYYUL), superstitions (KHURAFAT), sorcery (SIHIR), etc. Yet, the greatest threat to TAUHEED , which can become a form of SHIRK to Allah, is “MATERIALISM” as an ideology – a belief to replace our AQEEDAH.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)
  65. 65. REFLECTION:  Thus ‘modern’ Muslims who pride themselves as being intellectual, rational and ‘progressive’, who indeed may have rejected myths (TAKHAYYUL) and superstitions (KHURAFAT), yet they may still be followers of “TAGHUT” – ideologies that will lead them away from TAUHEED towards “SHIRK” ; from “Light” into “Darkness”; from “Faith” to “Unbelief”.All Rights Reserved© Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2012)

  68. 68. “Allah is the Protector (WALIY) of those who have faith: from the depths of darkness He will lead them forth into light.
