I begin with the Name of Allaah, the most Merciful, the One Who bestows Mercy

All praises and thanks be to Allaah, and may Allaah mention His Messenger and grant him peace. To proceed:

Show Mercy, for the One Better than You Showed Mercy

The Prophet of Mercy (Nabee ar-Rahmah), Muhammed ibn ‘Abdullaah, was the perfect example sent forth to mankind. His is the example the Muslims strive to mimic and follow in every aspect of their lives, from the moment they willfully rub their eyes as they wake up to pray their dawn prayers to the moment they go to sleep, and even when they wake up in the middle of their sleep; it is his noble example they strive to follow! Nobody can perfectly adhere to this  example, but everybody strives to, and every one of the Muslims has their own level of adherence.

She Advised Him . . .

They Committed Zinaa . . . !‏

I am a young woman from a very well-known family. All my life I have been religiously committed and of good character, as all will attest, but I do not know what is the reason that caused me to get to know a young man. I wanted to help him because he had suffered the calamity of his father’s death, and he is responsible for his siblings and his mother, but he went down the path of keeping company with bad people. I advised him and I felt it was my duty to stand beside him and advise him sincerely. Eventually he returned to his studies and gave up those bad friends, and he changed completely. His mother asked him the reason, and he told her. She spoke to me and thanked me for being patient with her son. One day he came for a visit to see me, and I did not know why I did not hesitate. I went to see him, and I felt as if he was my brother. We spent some time together and what happened happened, unfortunately. Now he wants to come and propose marriage to me, but it is impossible. He is three years younger than me, and he is not of the same nationality as me. Now I am pregnant and I want Allaah to conceal my sin and I want to repent. I know that I have done wrong, and you will criticize me severely, but I want to repent and I want a solution.

Lesson 05 [Tawheed al-Haakimeeyyah] December 23, 2010

Bismillaahi`r-Rahmaani`r-Raheem

Inna`l-hamdulillaah, wa`s-salaatu wa`s-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba’ad:

Lesson 05

[Tawheed al-Haakimeeyyah]

  • Tawassul

Tawassul, linguistically means to take a means, taking a way.

Technically, tawassul means to take a way to Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala via someone or something.

If one wants to make a du’aa` to Allaah, they can ask Him directly, or to reassure oneself that Allaah will listen to their prayer or respond quicker is by using the means of something else to Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala, like saying “O Allaah, I did such and such deed for Your sake alone, so recompense me by granting me something that I ask You of.”

Lesson 04

[Tawassul]

The goal of the Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was ‘Uboodeeyyah itself, to call people to worship Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala alone. Worship is everything – beliefs, utterance and actions.

Our mission and our motto in life is the same as the Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, “I have been ordered to fight against people until they testify that there is no god but Allah and that Muhammed is the Messenger of Allaah and until they perform the prayers and pay the zakaah…” [Bukhaari and Muslim]

Legislation for Allaah alone is a big part of ‘Uboodeeyyah, no doubt, but it is not a goal in and of itself; the goal of the Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was ‘Ulooheeyyah as a whole.

I begin in the Name of Allaah, the most Merciful, the One Who bestows Mercy

Inna’l-hamdulillaah wa’s-salaatu wa’s-salaamu ‘alaa rasoolillaah, wa ba’ad:

Lesson 03

[ Tawheed al-‘Ulooheeyah ]

Tawheed al-‘Ulooheeyah is to single out Allaah subhaanahu wa ta’ala in terms of worship. This is the most important and fundamental aspect of Islaam.

If someone says, “tell me in one second, what is Islaam all about?”

Then the quick, summarized, reply would be, “Worshipping Allaah Alone”.

This is what makes a person a Muslim and this is what distinguishes a person from being a Muslim and a kaafir.

Most of the entire creation believes in Tawheed ar-Ruboobeeyah, but where they differ is in Tawheed al-‘Ulooheeyah.

The father of the prophet sallaAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam was called ‘Abdullaah!

  • Examples of the Usage of Qiyaas in ‘Aqeedah

Al-Qiyaas al-Awla with respect to Allaah, which is analogy via priority. We make qiyaas when we say that it is considered to be a good thing or perfection for man to be described with wisdom, then by way of al-Qiyaas al-Awla, Allaah is more deserving to be described with Wisdom.

  • Importance of Studying this Topic

People are attracted to certain topics. If one were to talk about how to pray or fast, hardly people would have turned up (to the class). The big crowd is due to the fact that controversial issues are to be discussed relating to current affairs.
