BISMILLAH...

SURAH AN -NAML [THE ANT]

-revealed at Makkah
-every ayah in Surah An-Naml has many lessons
-last time, we stopped @ ayah 17

And there were gathered before Sulaiman (Solomon) his hosts of jinns and men, and birds, and they all were set in battle order (marching forwards). (An-Naml 27:17)

Suleiman’s army consisted of jinn, man and birds

LESSONS FROM THESE AYAHS:

1. JIHAD WAS MADE INCUMBENT ON ALL PROPHET'S BEFORE THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD (saws)

-jihad is not a new phenomenon
-the battle between truth and falsehood is a never-ending battle
-the battle between truth and falsehood is not new

Allah purchased from us our souls and wealth in exchange for Jannah

Verily, Allah has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allah's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'an. And who is truer to his covenant than Allah? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success. (At-Tawbah 9:111)

-we fight the kuffar and we are also slain
-This is a promise made by Allah ta'ala
-this is a promise made to us in the Torah
-and the Injeel [Bible] and the Qur'an
-so do not entertain the idea that jihad is a new phenomenon
-fasting / saum is not new either, see 2:183
-we learn self-restraint from it

O you who believe! Observing As-Saum (the fasting) is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those before you, that you may become Al-Muttaqûn (the pious - see V.2:2). (Al-Baqarah 2:183)

2. MEN AND JINN CAN COOPERATE TO DO GOOD

-even though we can cooperate w/ jinns to do piety, we're not to solicit them
-we can not ask their help but we can use it if offered
-that was only for Sulaiman
-Sulaiman was mesmerized with horses
-why weren't there horses w/ Sulaiman?
-because he missed salatul Asr that
-he said he'd never ride horses again

Why can't we solicit the jinn's help?
-if the car we're working on falls on us
-and the jinn lifts the car, alhumdulillah
-but we can't call on the jinn to help us
-those who call upon the jinn dabble in black magic
-to subdue the jinn was special only for Sulaiman

Narrated Abu Huraira: "The Prophet said, "Last night a big demon (afreet) from the jinns came to me and wanted to interrupt my prayers (or said something similar) but Allah enabled me to overpower him. I wanted to fasten him to one of the pillars of the mosque so that all of you could See him in the morning but I remembered the statement of my brother Solomon (as stated in Quran): My Lord! Forgive me and bestow on me a kingdom such as shall not belong to anybody after me (38.35)." The sub narrator Rauh said, "He (the demon) was dismissed humiliated." (Bukhari Book #8, Hadith #450)

-to subdue the jinn is exclusive to Sulaiman
-those who dabble in black magic have a punishment of one strike of the sword

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said: “The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution). (Narrated by al-Tirmidhi, 1460; al-Daaraqutni, 3/114; al-Haakim, 4/360; al-Bayhaqi, 8/136; see al-Silsilah al-Da’eefah, 3/641, no. 1446)

3. ANIMALS CAN BE USED FOR WAR

-In WW2 they used pigeons to carry messages
-in wars, they uses horses and they are given barakah

Sayyidina Urwah Bariqi reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, Goodness is tied to the forelocks of horses till the day of resurrection...it is reward and value. [Bukhari 2850, Muslim 1873, Tirmidhi 1700]

The Persian and Ethiopians use to use elephants

Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) not seen how your Lord dealt with the Owners of the Elephant? [The elephant army which came from Yemen under the command of Abrahah Al-Ashram intending to destroy the Ka'bah at Makkah]. (Al-Fil 105:1)

Did He not make their plot go astray? (Al-Fil 105:2)

And sent against them birds, in flocks, (Al-Fil 105:3)

Striking them with stones of Sijjil. (Al-Fil 105:4)

And made them like an empty field of stalks (of which the corn has been eaten up by cattle). (Al-Fil 105:5)


-the dolphin is used to search the ocean floor for bombs
-animals will be used for war
-dogs are used to sniff bombs out
-they are called the sniffer dogs
-dogs are used with the war on drugs
-they sniff drugs in hidden compartments
-the animals of Allah will always be used on the battlefield

Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not." (An-Naml 27:18)

4. ANIMALS HAVE COMPASSION

-The ant was a female ant
-the female ant was acting upon her motherly instinct
-women are more merciful than man
-women are more patient
-women are more compassionate
-women are resilient

5. ANIMALS HAVE A LANGUAGE AMONG THEMSELVES TO COMMUNICATE

6. THIS ANT PRACTICED LOVING FOR OTHERS WHAT YOU LOVE FOR YOURSELF

”None of you will truly believe until you love for your brother what you love for yourself”. (Al-Bukhari)

7. ANIMALS HAVE THE NATURAL INSTINCT TO FEAR DEATH (as humans do)

-when we're sacrificing, we're not to kill one animal in front of the other
-it's not Islamic adab
-it's makrooh to do it
-this is because they have natural instinct to fear death

Till, when they came to the valley of the ants, one of the ants said: "O ants! Enter your dwellings, lest Sulaiman (Solomon) and his hosts crush you, while they perceive not." (An-Naml 27:18)

So he [Sulaiman (Solomon)] smiled, amused at her speech and said: "My Lord! Inspire and bestow upon me the power and ability that I may be grateful for Your Favours which You have bestowed on me and on my parents, and that I may do righteous good deeds that will please You, and admit me by Your Mercy among Your righteous slaves." (An-Naml 27:19)

8. SULAIMAN WAS A MAN LIKE US w/ EMOTIONS

-this is why he smiled @ her speech

9. SULAIMAN WAS IMPRESSED w/ the BROTHERHOOD and SISTERHOOD among the ANIMAL KINGDOM
-prophets had emotions

Anas bin Malik reported that: The Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.) entered the room and we accompanied him... And Ibrahim breathed his last. The eyes of Allah's Messenger (S.A.W.) were filled with tears. Abdur Rehman Ibne Auf said: 'you are weeping, O Messenger of Allah (S.A.W.)'. He (S.A.W.) replied: "Ibne Auf, This is mercy". Then he (S.A.W.) said: "Our eyes shed tears and our hearts are filled with grief, but we do not say anything except that by which Allah is pleased. O, Ibrahim we are sorrowful due to your separation." narration has been mentioned in Sahih Bukhari, Sahih Muslim, Sunan Abi Dawood and Sunan Ibne Majah:

10. KNOWLEDGE BRINGS US JOY AND HAPPINESS

-he also smiled because when you have knowledge,
-it brings you joy & happiness
-ignorance brings us sorrow

11. A GOOD MUSLIM SHOULD PRAY FOR PARENTS THAT HAVE DIED BEFORE US,
-as Suleiman did

The Prophet (SAW) said: "When a person dies, all his deeds come to an end except three: sadaqah jaariyah (ongoing charity, e.g. a waqf or endowment), beneficial knowledge (which he has left behind), or a righteous child who will pray for him." (Reported by al-Tirmidhi, no 1376; he said this is a saheeh Hasan hadeeth)

-we should be humble in our prayers and pray for others
-he asked for the ability to work righteous deeds
-but some people are blessed and used those blessings to do haraam
-such as men w/ high testosterone: they commit a lot of zina
-a man w/ high testosterone and no taqwa is a shaitaan
-the 1st person to bring AIDS to the US was a flight attendant
-who had unprotected sex in many cities around the world

THE AIDS DOCUMENTARY INFO:

The Prophet (saw) said: “A man will follow the religion of his close friend, so let each of you look to who he takes a close friend.” (Narrated by Al-Tirmidhi, 2378)

ISLAMIC WILL:

1 who will wash you
2 who will pray janaza over you
3 what to be done w/ your possessions
4 which Shaikh do you want @ your janaza [write 2 or 3 in your will]
5 explain that all should be distributed according to Shariah law

-if you do not mention Shariah a
-nd you let it be by British law, you've become a kaafir

Ibn Umar reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “It is upon every Muslim who possesses something for which he should leave instructions that he should not let two nights pass without writing a will about it?.” [Tirmidhi 976, Ahmed 5197, Bukhari 1314, Muslim 1627, Ibn e Majah 2699, Abu Dawud 2862]

We can not go to a kaafir courthouse for judgment:

While 'Allama al-Shinqiti-May Allah be merciful with him-has said: To commit shirk with Allah in judging is of the same meaning as to commit shirk in His worship, there is no difference between the two in any manner. There is no difference in any sense between he who follows a system (nizam) other than Allah's system or law other than Allah's law (Sharia) and he who worships an idol or prostrates to a false god. They are the same and both are polytheists [associating others] with Allah. (Adwa' al-Bayan, 7:162)

He inspected the birds, and said: "What is the matter that I see not the hoopoe? Or is he among the absentees? (An-Naml 27:20)

12. A WISE ARMY GENERAL INSPECTS HIS ARMY

13. THE PROPHETS WENT TO THE BATTLEFIELDS THEMSELVES

-they led by example

And (remember) when you (Muhammad SAW) left your household in the morning to post the believers at their stations for the battle (of Uhud). And Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower. (Aali Imran 3:121)

-Muhammad left his home, family to go to the battlefield, he went to 23 battles

Ali (r.a.) said: 'When the war become hot and we met and faced the enemy, we shielded ourselves behind the Messenger of Allah (s.w.t) and there was no one who was closer to the enemy than he was'. [Ahmed]

-he showed example for us
-he didn't say GO but he DID
-we use this ayah to checkmate the Shiites
-b/c it said he left his HOUSEHOLD so na’am,
-his wives were part of his family
-Shiites don't believe in much of the Quran,
-and we know at least 30 of those ayahs!
-they are NOT Muslims
-why do some say to dismantle the Shariah is a minor kufr?
-some say they follow Abu Hanifa

Abu Haneefah (rh) said, when asked of his opinion of the one who says, ‘I do not know whether Allah is above the heavens or on the earth.’ - “He has disbelieved, because Allah says, “The Most Merciful rose above the Throne,” and His Throne is above His seven heavens.’ He was then asked , ‘what if he said that Allah is above His Throne but he does not know whether the Throne is in the heavens or on the earth?’ He said, ‘He has disbelieved, because He has denied that He is above the heavens, And whosoever denied that He is above the heavens has disbelieved.” (‘Sharh Usul I'tiqaad Ahlus Sunnah’ of al-Laalikaaee (d.414AH), ‘al-Uluww’ of adh- Dhahabee, also ‘Sharh Aqueedah at-Tahaawiyyah’ of ibn Abee al-Izz al-Hanafee)

-let them know that you are not stupid and you can sniff them from a mile away
-when the prophet(saw) was marching in the battlefield
-he made sure he was in the back of the army

Ibn Taymiyyah said: And it is known from the religion (of Islam) by necessity and by the consensus of all Muslims that whoever legalizes to follow other than the religion of Islam or a Sharia other than the Sharia of Muhammad (SAW), he is a Kaafir. And his kufr is similar to that of the one who believes in some part of the book (Quran) and reject some of it. Majmua Al-Fataawa: Vol 28, p. 524

I was accompanying the Prophet on a journey and was riding a slow camel that was lagging behind the others. The Prophet passed by me and asked, "Who is this?" I replied, "Jabir bin 'Abdullah." He asked, "What is the matter, (why are you late)?" I replied, "I am riding a slow camel." He asked, "Do you have a stick?" I replied in the affirmative. He said, "Give it to me." When I gave it to him, he beat the camel and rebuked it. Then that camel surpassed the others thenceforth. The Prophet said, "Sell it to me." I replied, "It is (a gift) for you, O Allah's Apostle." He said, "Sell it to me. I have bought it for four Dinars (gold pieces) and you can keep on riding it till Medina." When we approached Medina, I started going (towards my house). The Prophet said, "Where are you going?" I Sad, "I have married a widow." He said, "Why have you not married a virgin to fondle with each other?" I said, "My father died and left daughters, so I decided to marry a widow (an experienced woman) (to look after them)." He said, "Well done." When we reached Medina, Allah's Apostle said, "O Bilal, pay him (the price of the camel) and give him extra money." Bilal gave me four Dinars and one Qirat extra. (A sub-narrator said): Jabir added, "The extra Qirat of Allah's Apostle never parted from me." The Qirat was always in Jabir bin 'Abdullah's purse. Bukhari, Volume 3, Book 38, Number 504:

Jabir ibn Abdullah
father died
-in the battle of Uhud accidentally
-the shaitan pulled a stunt on them in the battle of Uhud
-when they were going to get married
-they didn't just think about cohabiting
-you pay more attention to her figure, her beauty
-Jabir paid attention to the material of the woman
-The Sahabahs looked at the overall picture
-it shows the taqwa of the Sahabahs
-this proves the prophet (saw) approved of what
-he did because he kept quiet

Narrated By Jabir: I was with Allah's Apostle in a Ghazwa, and when we returned, I wanted to hurry, while riding a slow camel. A rider came behind me. I looked back and saw that the rider was Allah's Apostle. He said (to me), "What makes you in such a hurry?" I replied, "I am newly married." He said, "Did you marry a virgin or a matron?" I replied, "(Not a virgin but) a matron." He said, "Why didn't you marry a young girl with whom you could play and who could play with you?" Then when we approached (Medina) and were going to enter (it), the Prophet said, "Wait till you enter (your homes) at night (in the first part of the night) so that the ladies with unkempt hair may comb their hair, and those whose husbands have been absent (for a long time) may shave their pubic hair." (The sub-narrator, Hashim said: A reliable narrator told me that the Prophet added in this Hadith: "(Seek to beget) children! Children, O Jabir!") [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 7, Book 62, Hadith #172]

14. SULEIMAN WAS METICULOUS W/ HIS ARMY

-he did not take anything for granted
-some of you when you give somebody a task and you assume they did the task
-you are not meticulous
-untenable- means you are no longer wanted

"I will surely punish him with a severe torment, or slaughter him, unless he brings me a clear reason." (An-Naml 27:21)

WHAT IS SEVERE TORMENT?

-I will pull out your feathers and leave
-your body exposed to the rain, sun, and other animals that will harm you
-the feather is a protection for the bird
-this bird was a male
-some birds eat snakes
-but the ant was female
-the severe torment Sulaiman
-is talking about is to pull the feather out

15. SULEIMAN TOOK HIS PUNCTUALITY SERIOUSLY
-he would kill the bird if he couldn't say why he was late

Successful indeed are the believers. (Al-Mu'minun 23:1)

Those who offer their Salat (prayers) with all solemnity and full submissiveness. (Al-Mu'minun 23:2)

And those who turn away from Al-Laghw (dirty, false, evil vain talk, falsehood, and all that Allah has forbidden). (Al-Mu'minun 23:3)

And those who pay the Zakat . (Al-Mu'minun 23:4)

And those who guard their chastity (i.e. private parts, from illegal sexual acts) (Al-Mu'minun 23:5)


-you are not allowed to be a flasher
-a Senator from NYC who was a kaafir
-was flashing people on the Internet and he lost his job

http://www.examiner.com/hollywood-culture-in-national/republican-senator-scott-brown-caught-on-cam-with-2-sexy-girls-bikinis-his-daughters

-the webcam is a fitna for people
-the webcam can be a fitnah for people
-he was wishful thinking, thinking the democrats will keep him on
-America is very punitive
-to be punitive is to be quick w/ punishment
-they kill a lot of black people even when they are innocent
-Khawarijj- a punitive who does not forgive
-Allah said the bird wasn't even late for a long time
-Sulaiman was very mad

But the hoopoe stayed not long, he (came up and) said: "I have grasped (the knowledge of a thing) which you have not grasped and I have come to you from Saba' (Sheba) with true news. (An-Naml 27:22)

16. PROPHETS BECOME ANGRY

-Sulaiman smiled at the speech of the ant

WHY WAS SULEIMAN SO UPSET ABOUT THIS BIRD IN PARTICULAR?
-Ibn Abass (cousin of the Prophet) told us ....
-Ibn Abass said this bird was a specialist to find water
-Sulaiman commanded the jinn to dig up the earth with the help of the bird

17. ON THE BATTLEFIELD, PUNCTUALITY BECOMES CRUCIAL
-thousands of Muslims are fired because they are not punctual

SHAIKH IN EUROPE:
-white people whether Muslim or kufaar they come on time
-blacks and Asians come an hour later for their appointment

18. WE'RE ALLOWED TO KILL ANIMALS THAT STEP OUT OF LINE
-if you have a dog which is a biting dog you can kill the dog
-you can kill animals which step out of line

19. LATE-COMING OFFENDS YOUR TEACHER / AMEER

20. ON THE BATTLEFIELD, THERE IS NO MARGIN FOR ERROR

-everything must be precise
-SH doesn't believe the Muslims did 9/11
-it was too organized and they are always late
-one mistake is one mistake too many
-Allah said the bird wasn't even late for a long time
-when the bird arrived the other bird said Sulaiman was very mad
-the bird said "did Sulaiman say unless I give a reason"

But the hoopoe stayed not long, he (came up and) said: "I have grasped (the knowledge of a thing) which you have not grasped and I have come to you from Saba' (Sheba) with true news. (An-Naml 27:22)

-the bird said to Sulaiman I have grasped knowledge which you have not grasped
-...he came with the news brought from Yemen

21. BIRDS CAN FLY FAR AND WIDE
-from Africa to America
-in the ocean there are small islands which the birds take rest

22. THE BIRD WAS TAPPING INTO THE CURIOSITY OF SULEIMAN
-the bird was tapping into the curiosity of Sulaiman
-don’t underestimate the creation of Allah

23. PROPHETS DO NOT KNOW EVERYTHING
-we use this ayah to refute the Shiites

SHIA HUJJAH: The Imams have knowledge of the past and future; and nothing is hidden from them. ( Al-Kafi Vol.1 p.260 )

24. [SURE] KNOWLEDGE GIVES YOU CONFIDENCE
-the bird used the word yaqeen
-Yaqeen-means there is not an atoms weight of doubt
-the bird spoke with confidence
-because when you have knowledge you are confident
-how can a jahil debate?

25. EVEN ANIMALS GRAVITATE TOWARD KNOWLEDGE
-if animals did not gravitate towards knowledge
-why did he travel that far to Yemen?
-the bird didn't go to "gallivant" [mindless journey]
-the bird went on a fact finding mission
-to take back to his master Sulaiman
-gallivant = frolicking, fun, mindless journey
-the kufaar gallivant to get rid of stress

26. KNOWLEDGE GIVES YOU STATUS
-the bird used the knowledge to gain status

Say (O Muhammad SAW): "I possess no power of benefit or hurt to myself except as Allah wills. If I had the knowledge of the Ghaib (unseen), I should have secured for myself an abundance of wealth, and no evil should have touched me. I am but a warner, and a bringer of glad tidings unto people who believe." (Al-A'raf 7:188)

-this ayah proves prophets do not know everything
-this is the ayah to checkmate Shiites
-The bird said I am coming from Yemen with yaqeen

"I found a woman ruling over them, and she has been given all things that could be possessed by any ruler of the earth, and she has a great throne. (An-Naml 27:23)

Bilqis palace had 360 windows one side
[Ibn Kathir's tafseer]
-360 windows on the eastside and Westside of the palace
- Tamliquhum - to own

HOW WAS A WOMAN ABLE TO OWN HER OWN SUBJECTS?
A women owned her subjects
-Why was this possible?
-anytime you worship the CREATION and not the CREATOR you are nothing
-but a piece of object which is owned by somebody else
-so Islam is our ultimate liberation
-Bilqis, she owned her people
-the bird said: Bilqis Tamliquhum

"I found her and her people worshipping the sun instead of Allah, and Shaitan (Satan) has made their deeds fair-seeming to them, and has barred them from (Allah's) Way, so they have no guidance," (An-Naml 27:24)

-she owned her subjects
-she was giving everything which a ruler can be given

Narrated By Abu Bakra: During the battle of Al-Jamal, Allah benefited me with a Word (I heard from the Prophet). When the Prophet heard the news that the people of the Persia had made the daughter of Khosrau their Queen (ruler), he said, "Never will succeed such a nation as makes a woman their ruler." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 9, Book 88, Hadith #219]

27. BIRDS / ANIMALS UNDERSTAND FIQHUL WAAQI

-the bird has been in other palaces before
-she was giving everything which a ruler can be given, this is how wealthy she was
-the bird was able to do a comparison
-the bird arrived at the conclusion that Bilqis
-was blessed with everything a rule could be blessed with
-how is it possible for a bird to give such a wonderful speech?
-they have no guidance

28. EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL UNDERSTANDS TAWHEED

Whatsoever is in the heavens and whatsoever is on the earth glorifies Allah. And He is the All-Mighty, the All-Wise. (As-Saff 61:1)


-Only man and jinn rebel against Allah
-angels wont be dumped in the hellfire as well as animals

Verily, We have warned you of a near torment, the Day when man will see that (the deeds) which his hands have sent forth, and the disbeliever will say: "Woe to me! Would that I were dust!" (An-Naba 78:40)

-you were bragging and boasting about your royal titles
-the only criminals are man and jinn

The God Delusion is a 2006 bestselling
non-fiction book by British biologist Richard Dawkins:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_God_Delusion

The kuffaar have websites that claim we worship the sun and moon
-these are not Islamic signs, some countries use them on their flag
-The star and the crescent are not Islamic signs

And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him. (Fussilat 41:37)

How can a kaafir make a website saying Muslims worship the moon?

THE KUFFAAR LIE ABOUT ALLAH:
1 He lost a wrestling match
2 He begot a son
3 He rested
4 He regretted creating man


-not one Christian in Jamaica said he was too harsh
-but a Muslim women wanted him to beat around the bush
-once you’re a fool at 40, you’re a Fool Forever
-How can you ring Sh up saying he is too harsh?
-how do Christians say HOLY MARY, MOTHER OF GOD?
-a Christian is brain-dead
-If Jesus was God, why did he say NO ONE IS GOOD EXCEPT GOD

And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. (Matthew 19:17) King James Version

But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36) King James Version


Only God himself knows when judgment day is
-If Jesus was God, how come he doesn't know when judgment day is?
-Allah didn't sugar coat the Truth

Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islam, the Qur'an and Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures. (Al-Baiyinah 98:6)

-those who reject faith from the pagans, will be in hellfire forever
-if a man has cancer don’t lie and say to him,
-"you have diabetes and it can be treated"
-nobody likes a liar
-What makes you think you can lie to people about the Hereafter?
-if you lie to someone about their religion,
-you put their hereafter in jeopardy
-the worst liar is one who lies on ALLAH 'tala

And who does more wrong than the one who invents a lie against Allah, while he is being invited to Islam? And Allah guides not the people who are Zalimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers and disbelievers) folk. (As-Saff 61:7)

-the bird complained to Sulaiman" I was in Yemen
-and saw people worshipping the sun instead of Allah"
-the animals know you are only allowed to worship Allah
-a kaafir, sometimes his dog turns on him
-because the dog is a Muslim
-sometimes a dog is a Muslim and their owner is a kaafir
-the dog is practicing al walaa wa baraa,
-love and hate for the sake of Allah
-the animals know that you’re a kaafir
-and you want to have dominion over him
-many animals turn on their master

Dog eats owner’s face during her suicide attempt:
http://mplsgirl.wordpress.com/2006/07/04/3/

And never will Allah grant to the disbelievers a way (to triumph) over the believers. (An-Nisa 4:141)

-if the kufaar are victorious over you, you are not true believers
-Allah does not break His promise

29. EVERY ANIMAL IS AWARE OF THE SHAITAN AND HIS PLOTS
-because the bird told Sulaiman it was the shaitan
-who led them astray not to worship Allah alone
