Islam Against Extremism Conference 22nd July 2017

[8] Back To Basics- [The Statement of Pure Islamic Monotheism- Laa Ilaaha Ilal laa]

In The Name of Allaah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy

Allaah [The Most High] said:

أَتَىٰٓ أَمۡرُ ٱللَّهِ فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُوهُ‌ۚ سُبۡحَـٰنَهُ ۥ وَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ

يُنَزِّلُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةَ بِٱلرُّوحِ مِنۡ أَمۡرِهِۦ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِۦۤ أَنۡ أَنذِرُوٓاْ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنَا۟ فَٱتَّقُونِ

The Event (the Hour or the punishment) ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it. Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate as partners with Him. He sends down the angels with inspiration of His Command to whom of His slaves He pleases (saying): “Warn mankind that none has the right to be worshipped but I, so fear Me (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds). [Surah An-Nahl 1-2]

Few Reminders from The Above Aayaat

[أَتَىٰٓ أَمۡرُ ٱللَّهِ فَلَا تَسۡتَعۡجِلُوهُ‌ۚ   – The Event (the Hour or the punishment) ordained by Allah will come to pass, so seek not to hasten it]; meaning: Allaah [The Most High] made it known that what He has promised is near and that it will definitely take place.

[سُبۡحَـٰنَهُ ۥ وَتَعَـٰلَىٰ عَمَّا يُشۡرِكُونَ- Glorified and Exalted be He above all that they associate as partners with Him]; meaning: Glorified and Exalted is He above the partners they ascribe to Him, such as sons, a wife, similarities to the creation and other things which the polytheists ascribe to Him -all of which are either not befitting His Majesty or violates His Perfection. And after He [The Most High] freed Himself from the evil descriptions which His enemies describe Him with, He mentioned the revelation, which He sent down to His Prophets, saying: [يُنَزِّلُ ٱلۡمَلَـٰٓٮِٕكَةَ بِٱلرُّوحِ مِنۡ أَمۡرِهِۦ عَلَىٰ مَن يَشَآءُ مِنۡ عِبَادِهِۦۤ  – He sends down the angels with inspiration of His Command to whom of His slaves He pleases];  meaning: The revelation through which the hearts are given life [i.e. guided to Eemaan, Tawheed etc], which He conveyed to Jibreel and commanded Jibreel to convey to the Prophets and Messengers, whom He declared to be righteous and worthy of carrying His Message.

And the essence of this message was: [أَنۡ أَنذِرُوٓاْ أَنَّهُ ۥ لَآ إِلَـٰهَ إِلَّآ أَنَا۟ فَٱتَّقُونِ – Warn mankind that none has the right to be worshipped but I (Allaah), so fear Me (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds)]; meaning: To have knowledge and awareness of Allaah [The Most High]; single Him out in His Attributes, which are all Attributes of Perfection – [free from all deficiencies, shortcomings, faults  etc]- and worship Him alone, while associating none as a partner to Him; for indeed this is why He [The Most High] revealed His Books and sent His Messengers. All the different laws He [The Most High] ordered His Prophets and Messengers and their followers to follow was for the purpose of fulfilling this goal [i.e. Tawheed].

To be continued InshaaAllaah
