A Return to Tawheed
[color=blue]0diggsdigg The kalimah (word) of tawheed, "La ilaha ill-Allah" came to correct belief - not on'Adiyy (who had been a Christian), said, "O Messenger of Allah, they did not worship them." The Prophet (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam) replied, "Did they not tell them that the prohibited was lawful and that the lawful was prohibited and they followed them in that?" When 'Adiyy admitted, "Yes," the Prophet stated, "That was their worship of them." [Ahmad and at-Tirmidhi]Thus worship was defined as obedience - a fact that becomes evident from even a superficial study of the Qur'an in which Allah (subhanahu wa ta'ala) orders repeatedly: "Obey Allah and the Messenger." , 4:59, 8:1, 8:64, 24:54, 47:33, 58:13 and 64:12.Many other verses, although worded differently, carry the same meaning.]"Legislation is only for Allah. He has commanded that you not worship any but Him. That is the right religion, but most of the people do not know." [12:40]Two types of shirk were common both before and after the prophethood of Muhammad (sallallahu `alayhi wa sallam). The first of these is the direction of acts of worship (especially supplication) to others besides Allah while still claiming belief in Him. The Qur'an orders:"And do not invoke besides Allah another god. There is no god but Him." [12:40]The other type of shirk is the willful adherence to laws and rulings other than His."Do you not consider those who claim to have believed in what was revealed to you and what was revealed before you? They wish to refer legislation to taghoot (i.e. false objects of worship or those transgressors who usurp the divine right of government) while they were commanded to reject it." [4:60][b]The loss of tawheed is sadly evident today in the acceptance of foreign philosophies and lifestyles, political oppression, innovations in religion, and countless forms of disobedience. Allah (subhanahu wa ta`ala) warns:"Follow what has been revealed to you from your Lord. And do not follow any patrons other than Him." [7:3]"And if you obey most of those upon the earth, they will lead you away from the path of Allah." [6:116]"And certainly do many lead (others) astray through their own desires without knowledge." [6:119]"And do not obey one whose heart We have made unaware of Our remembrance and who follows his desires and whose affair is excess (i.e. exceeding the limits of Allah)." [18:28]Reform will be accomplished only when the majority of Muslims has returned to the true worship of Allah and will no tolerate shirk. The greater jihad against tyranny and oppression everywhere on earth will neither be accepted by Allah nor aided by Him until the participants are truly dedicated to His cause and free of all other motivations
