Everything has pillars in Islam
Without the pillars, the foundation will not stand strong
Pillar is that which a structure stands upon
Islam has 5 pillars
Imaan has 6 pillars
Tawbah has 5 pillars
Qadr has 4 pillars
Tauheed has 4 pillars
Tauheed was the message of all Prophets and Messengers because of that, Allah said:

And verily, We have sent among every Ummah (community, nation) a Messenger (proclaiming) : "Worship Allah (Alone), and avoid (or keep away from) Taghut[] (all false deities, etc. i.e. do not worship Taghut besides Allah)." Then of them were some whom Allah guided and of them were some upon whom the straying was justified. So travel through the land and see what was the end of those who denied (the truth). (An-Nahl 16:36)

The Prophet (saw) said:

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and until they establish the salah and pay the zakat. And if they do that then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah.” [al-Bukhari (25) and Muslim (22)]

This is the evidence that Tauheed was the message of every Prophet and Messenger
Because of this, Allah (swt) said:

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

What Allah (swt) is saying here is fight them until there is no more shirk
Fitna in the above ayah means shirk


WHAT ARE THE 4 BRANCHES OF TAWHEED?

1. TAWHEED AR RUBUBIYYAH
This means Allah (swt) is the only Lord and Creator

2. TAWHEED ASMAA WA SAFAAT
This means to believe in Allah's 99 Names and Attributes

3. TAWHEED IBADA (ULUHIYYAH)
This means to worship Allah (swt) alone without associating partners
To single Allah out for worship

4. TAWHEED HAKIMIYYAH
To believe that Allah (swt) is the only Law Giver
The Only Legislator

A lot of people want to marginalize tawheed into only 3 categories only
These are done for political motives only


TAWHEED AR RUBUBIYYAH

This branch of tawheed means that Allah (swt) is The Only Creator
Even the pagans of Makkah acknowledged this branch of tawheed.
Allah (swt) said about this branch of tawheed:

And if you (O Muhammad SAW) ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth," they will certainly say: "Allāh." Say: "All the praises and thanks be to Allāh!" But most of them know not. (Luqman 31:25)

The Pharaoh of Egypt was famous for denying The Lord and Creator
But he acknowledged Him in his heart

And they belied them (those Ayat) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their ownselves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayat) are from Allah, and Musa (Moses) is the Messenger of Allah in truth, but they disliked to obey Musa (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]. So see what was the end of the Mufsidun (disbelievers, disobedient to Allah, evil-doers, liars.). (An-Naml 27:14)

There is no real atheist in the world, they only pretend

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq­illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir At­Tabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)

Tawheed ar Rububiyyah makes it clear that
The greatest scientist can't even create a house fly
They are able to make test tube babies
But they can't create the sperm or the egg of the women in the test tube baby.
Only Allah (swt) can.

O mankind! A similitude has been coined, so listen to it (carefully) : Verily! Those on whom you call besides Allah, cannot create (even) a fly, even though they combine together for the purpose. And if the fly snatched away a thing from them, they would have no power to release it from the fly. So weak are (both) the seeker and the sought. (Al-Hajj 22:73)

Those false deities who you call upon besides Allah, can’t create a house fly
If the fly should take something from you (e.g morsel of food)
You can’t even get it back
The universe is controlled by Allah (swt)
Allah alone subdues the Universe
The evidence is 13:2

Allah is He Who raised the heavens without any pillars that you can see. Then, He Istawa (rose above) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He has subjected the sun and the moon (to continue going round)! Each running (its course) for a term appointed. He regulates all affairs, explaining the Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) in detail, that you may believe with certainty in the meeting with your Lord. (Ra'd 13:2)

Tawheed ar Rububiyyah also means that Allah is the single source of causality
Allah (swt) causes things to happen
We don't believe in omens
Like No 13 can cause bad things to happen
Omen is shirk as mentioned in the hadith below
Because only Allah (swt) can cause things to happen and nothing else can

Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said, “Tiyarah (belief in evil omens) is shirk..." [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/160) No. 1614, Sunan Abu Dawud (4/17) No. 3910, Musnad Ahmad (1/440) No. 4194, Sunan Ibn Majah (4/560) No. 3538]


WHO WENT ASTRAY IN REGARDS TO TAWHEED AR RUBUBIYYAH

Many people went astray

1. THE CHRISTIANS

Because they say Allah (swt) said ‘let US make man’
Us means to them Jesus (as) and Allah (swt)
They say Jesus took part with Allah in the creation of man
This is the creed of Christians
Allah (swt) is The Only Creator
So for them to say Jesus is partner with Allah means they are astray

And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: "Verily, I am going to place (mankind) generations after generations on earth." They said: "Will You place therein those who will make mischief therein and shed blood, - while we glorify You with praises and thanks (Exalted be You above all that they associate with You as partners) and sanctify You." He (Allah) said: "I know that which you do not know." (Al-Baqarah 2:30)


2. THE MU’TAZILA

They are called the rationalist
They believe man creates their own actions
Allah (swt) said in the following Ayah that He is the one who creates your actions

"While Allāh has created you and what you make!" (As-Saffat 37:96)


3. THE PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN OMENS

Because they believe omens can affect the outcome of events
E.g. If you believe that there might be disaster if you travel on the 13th
That the plane might crash or you will have an accident
They believe 13 is an unlucky number
Allah (swt) has predestined what will occur 50,000 years
Before He created the heavens and earths

Abdullah ibn Amr (RA) reported having heard from Allah’s Messenger (SAW) who said, “Allah decreed the destinies before He created the heavens and earth by fifty thousand years.” [Tirmidhi 2163, Ahmed 6590, Muslim 2653]


4. THOSE WHO ARE MAGICIANS

They want you to believe that they can create
This means they want you to believe they subdue the Universe
They claim they have the power to turn a handkerchief into a rabbit, a pen or a worm
The magicians of the Pharaoh said they could turn sticks into snakes
Because of this, magic is shirk
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:

Jundub (RA) reported that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “The hadd (prescribed punishment) for the practitioner of magic is a blow with the sword (i.e., execution)"  [Sunan Tirmidhi (4/60) No. 1460, Sunan al-Daraqutni (4/120) No. 3204, Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/401) No. 8073, al-Sunan al-Kabir al-Bayhaqi (8/234) No. 16500, al-Mu'jam al-Kabir al-Tabarani (2/161) No. 1665]

A magician is killed as a kaafir not as a faasiq
Because of 2:102

…. Sulaiman did not disbelieve, but the Shayatin (devils) disbelieved, teaching men magic and such things that came down at Babylon to the two angels, Harut and Marut, but neither of these two (angels) taught anyone (such things) till they had said, "We are only for trial, so disbelieve not (by learning this magic from us)."… (Al-Baqarah 2:102)

The two angels did not teach any magic until
They said to them that they are only testing them and that magic was kufr.
Every Islamic scholar use this Ayah to make takfir on the practitioners of black magic


5. THE SHIA

They went astray because they say their Imams are infallible
And their Imams control the Universe
Even to the extent of the atoms of the Universe

Shia Hujjah:
The spiritual status of the imam is the universal divine vice-gerency that is sometimes mentioned by the imams (peace be upon them). It is a vice-gerency pertaining to the whole of creation, by virtue of which all the atoms in the universe humble themselves before the holder of authority (imams). It is one of the essential beliefs of our Shia school that no one can attain the spiritual status of the imams, not even the cherubim or the prophets. Imam Khomeini, Islam and Revolution: Writings and Declarations of Imam Khomeini, (Berkeley: Mizaan Press, 1981)

Shias believe their imams’ status is above the Prophets (as)
Many of you want us to unite with the shia
Even though they have gone astray


5. THE NATION OF ISLAM (NOI)

They say a mad scientist called Yaqub created the Whiteman in a science lab
They believe man can create man

Yakub The Mad Scientist - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakub_%28Nation_of_Islam%29

They believe the white man was created in the science lab; that is racism
The Prophet (saw) said the racist is like the dung beetle

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Indeed Allah has removed from you the blind loyalties of jahiliyyah and the pride for ancestry. Either be a pious believer or a miserable sinner. (All of) you are children of Adam, and Adam is from dust. Let some men cease to take pride in others, who are nothing but burning coal for the HellFire, it will be easier for Allah to handle them than a dung beetle driving his nose into filth.” [Sunan Abu Dawud (4/331) No. 5116, Musnad Ahmad (2/361) No. 8721]


TAWHEED ASMA WA SIFAAT

This means to believe in Allah's 99 names and Attributes
And to abstain from describing Allah with other names and attributes
The Prophet Muhammad (saw) said:

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever 'ahsaha' (enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one's belief in them) will enter Paradise.” [al-Bukhari (7392) and Muslim (2677)]

Therefore, we believe in Allah's 99 Names and Attributes without 7 flaws:

1. TASHBIH

Tashbih means to make Allah (swt) similar to His creation
To give Allah a co-equal
Allah has no co-equal
To say Allah sees and hears exactly like us is tashbih
so Allah said:

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

And Allah also said:

"And there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him." (Al-Ikhlas 112:4)

Because Allah has no co-equal, Allah sees and hears but not like us

2. TAKYEEF

Takyeef is to specify how Allah (swt) sees and hears
We believe in Allah’s names and Attributes without takyeef
Takyeef is to specify how Allah descends every night
How He Talks, Sees, Hears etc

3. TAJSEEM

Tajseem is to believe Allah (swt) has a body like a human body

4. TA’TEEL

We believe in Allah's names without ta'teel
ta'teel is to reject Allah's 99 names and attributes
The Mu’tazilites are guilty of this
They believe in one name only, Allah
But they don't believe in the 99 names
Because they say Ar Rahman, Ar Rahem, al Malik, al Qudus etc are Gods besides Allah (swt)
They believe for them to believe in all of those names is shirk
They practice ta'teel

5. TAFWEED

We believe in Allah's names without tafweed
Tafweed is agnosticism
They claim they don't know what Allah's names and Attributes mean
They say Allahu Alam for everything
They are lying because everyone know kareem is kind
And kind is the opposite of someone who doesn’t give
Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) debated them and asked them
If they believe Allah's names and attributes are beautiful names
They said Yes.
Ibn Taymiyyah asked how can they arrive at that conclusion
If they do not know the meanings of the names
They were checkmated

6. TA'WEEL

That is to give Allah's names a false interpretation
An example of ta'weel:

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

Allah (swt) said He has two Hands and created Adam (as) with both Hands
Those who practice ta’weel say Hands means Power
Allah (swt) spoke about such people in the following Ayah

And when you (Muhammad SAW) see those who engage in a false conversation about Our Verses (of the Qur'an) by mocking at them, stay away from them till they turn to another topic. And if Shaitan (Satan) causes you to forget, then after the remembrance sit not you in the company of those people who are the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers, etc.). (Al-An'am 6:68)

A second example of ta'weel is the saying of Prophet (saw) said that
Allah (swt) descends to the first heaven at the last third of every night
A person who practices ta'weel says Allah doesn't descend,
But an Angel descends on behalf of Allah

The Authority Of Abu Hurayrah: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said : "Our Lord (glorified and exalted be He) descends each night to the earth's sky when there remains the final third of the night, and He says: Who is saying a prayer to Me that I may answer it? Who is asking something of Me that I may give it him? Who is asking forgiveness of Me that I may forgive him?" [Reporters. It was related by al-Bukhari 1145 (also by Muslim 758, Malik 619, at-Tirmidhi 3498 and Abu Dawud 1315)]

They say Allah will never leave His Arsh
They think if Allah descends from His Arsh, the Arsh will be on top of Him
Their problem is they compare Allah to a man
They reject Allah has two Hands, because they think Allah's Hands looks like man’s Hands
The clock on the wall has two hands
Why can't Allah have two Hands?
The hands on the clock doesn’t resemble your hands

Mujahid narrated Abdullah ibn Umar (RA) said: “Allah created four things with His Hand; 1. The Throne 2. The Pen 3. Aadam and 4. The paradise of ‘Adn. He then said to the rest of the creation ‘Kun’ [Be] and it was.” [Adh Dhahabi in ‘Mukhtasar al-‘Uluw’ (p105), Abu al-Shaikh al-Asbahani in 'al-‘Adhuma' (5/1555), Tafsir al-Tabari (21/239), ‘The chain is authentic according to the conditions of Muslim.’]

Allah (swt) created Adam (as) with His two Hands out of respect for him
The shaitan did not take it lightly - he thought Allah gave him a raw deal
The shaitan thought Allah preferred Adam over him


7. TAHREEF

We believe in Allah's names without tahreef
Tahreef means to spell the words wrong in order to change the meaning
To corrupt the name by spelling it wrong
And this is a Jewish quality
These people cannot cope with the hadith that says "Allah Laughs...’’

Abu Huraira narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “Allah laughs at two men, one of them kills the other and they both enter Paradise!” They said: 'How can that happen O Messenger of Allah?' He said: “One of them kills the other, so the one who is killed goes to Paradise (a martyr) and then the man who killed embraces Islam, goes and fights in the path of Allah and is killed as a Shaheed and goes to Paradise” [al-Bukhari (2826) and Muslim (1890)]

The hadith is in Bukhari but they don't care.
They cannot believe that Allah laughs
They also can't cope with the hadith that says "Allah became jealous...:

Al-Mughira b. Shu'ba (RA) reported that Sa'd b. 'Ubada (RA) said: If I were to see a man with my wife, I would have struck him with the sword, and not with the flat part (side) of it. When Allah's Messenger (PBUH) heard of that, he said: Are you surprised at Sa'd's jealousy of his honour? By Allah, I am more jealous of my honour than he, and Allah is more jealous than I. Because of His jealousy Allah has prohibited abomination, both open and secret And no person is more jealous of his honour than Allah, and no persons, is more fond of accepting an excuse than Allah, on account of which He has sent messengers, announcers of glad tidings and warners; and no one is more fond of praise than Allah on account of which Allah has promised Paradise. [Sahih Muslim, Book 9, Hadith #3572]

They can't cope with the notion that Allah has Two Eyes
The below hadith is the hujjah Ahmed ibn Hanbal used to prove Allah had two Eyes

Abdullah bin 'Umar (RA) said: One day the Messenger of Allah (SAW) mentioned Al-Masih Dajjal (the Antichrist) in the presence of the people and said, "Verily, Allah is not one-eyed but Al-Masih Ad-Dajjal is blind in the right eye which looks like a swollen grape." [Al-Bukhari (7127) and Muslim (169)]

Also, they can't cope with the verse in surah 68:42
Where Allah says He will expose His Shin

(Remember) the Day when the Shin shall be laid bare (i.e. the Day of Resurrection) and they shall be called to prostrate (to Allah), but they (hypocrites) shall not be able to do so, (Al-Qalam 68:42)

Man will not be able to bow down because in the dunya
He used to bow down to be seen by men

Narrated By Abu Said: I heard the Prophet saying, "Allah will bring forth the severest Hour, and then all the Believers, men and women, will prostrate themselves before Him, but there will remain those who used to prostrate in the world for showing off and for gaining good reputation. Such people will try to prostrate (on the Day of Judgment) but their back swill be as stiff as if it is one bone (a single vertebra)." [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 6, Book 60, Hadith #441]

They say you are giving Allah body parts.
But we say who told you Allah is human?
Why can't you believe Allah has two Eyes but they do not look like our eyes?
Or He has two Hands but they don't look like our hands?

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

Allah said He has two Hands in the above verse
The Shia also don't believe that Allah has two Hands or Eyes
They take their creed from the Mu’tazillites
We don't give Allah body parts because Allah is not human

There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer. (Ash-Shura 42:11)

So in regards to Allah's Names and Attributes
We read them, we believe them and we leave them
We take the same stance as the sahabah
We don't describe them or deny them
If this is not your stance, you are a deviant or a zindeeq

'Abdur-Rahmaan Ibn Muhammad Ibn Habeeb Ibn Abee Habeeb on the authority of his father, on the authority of his grandfather [who] said: I witnessed Khalid Ibn 'Abdullah Al-Qasree - and he addressed them at Waasit - "Oh People, make sacrifice, may Allah accept it from you. Verily I am sacrificing Al-Ja'd Ibn Dirham, for indeed he claims that Allah did not take Ibrahim as a khaleel (close friend), and [that] He did not speak to Moosa. Most Perfect is He and exalted is He from what Al-Ja'd say." Then he descended and slaughtered him. I say: And the Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah speak with this, and they distort the text of the revelation regarding that, and they claim that the Lord is purified of that (i.e. having spoken to Moses and taken Ibrahim as a khalil). [Mukhtasar al-Uluww of adh-Dhahabi, (p.134)]

Be careful with Allah's Names and Attributes, because you might become a zindeeq
If something is known in the Quran, it becomes that which is known by necessity


WHERE IS ALLAH?

There are 4 opinions as to where Allah is

1. ALLAH (SWT) EXIST WITHOUT A PLACE

This is the opinion of the tabligi jama
They believe that if you put Allah in a place, you put a limit on Allah
This is the creed of Tabligi Jama, Berailvis, Sufi, Mu’tazillah and the ashairah
90% of the Muslim are ashairah
The shia, Tabligi, Berailvis are ashairah
They don't believe Allah has two Hands

2. ALLAH IS EVERYWHERE

The Tabligi Jama, Berailvis, Shia... say Allah is everywhere
The Jewish Kabaala also say Allah is everywhere
Also the Ashairah say Allah is everywhere
This opinion is very insulting to Allah (swt)
Because Allah in not in the brothel, the toilet, the pigsty, the disco, casino etc
This is insulting to Allah to say Allah is everywhere
The people who say Allah is everywhere quote a Quranic verse
To convince us that they are right and we are wrong
They quote 2:115

And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely! Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing. (Al-Baqarah 2:115)

The above verse means the knowledge of Allah is everywhere not Allah Himself
The verse came down when the sahabah were in the desert
And weren't sure if they were facing the qiblah
So they complained to the Prophet (saw)
And Allah sent 2:115 down to comfort them
When you don't know the causes of revelation, you are nothing but a headless chicken
Because you don't know why Allah sent down verses of the Quran
When we refuted them with this Ayah, they came back with another Ayah
We refute their dodgy understanding of the Ayah not the ayah
They came back with 50:16

And indeed We have created man, and We know what his ownself whispers to him. And We are nearer to him than his jugular vein (by Our Knowledge). (Qaf 50:16)

They said because Allah is closer to you than your jugular vein
Therefore Allah is everywhere
However, this means Allah's protection is with us
Allah's Rahma is with us
Allah's knowledge is with us
It doesn't mean Allah is with us in person
Also, we say to them, if you say Allah is everywhere with us
You are saying Allah is with us in the toilet
Don't take it literally
You are a hypocrite
Stop taking the Quran literally when it suits you

A man is in Birmingham and people are afraid to debate him
The salafis ran and hid
When a person is a munafiq, Allah will never give him
Knowledge of the deen and a good character
That’s why the salafis couldn't debate him

Abu Huraira (RA) reported that Allah’s Messenger (SAW) said: “Two characterstics cannot combine in a hypocrite: good character and an understanding of religion.” [Sunan Tirmidhi (5/49) No. 2684, al-Thiqat Ibn Hibban (8/227) No. 13149, al-Mu’jam al-Awsat al-Tabarani (8/75) No. 8010, al-Madkhal ila al-Sunan al-Kubra al-Bayhaqi (pg. 256) No. 357]


3. ALLAH (SWT) IS IN HEAVEN

This is the creed of the Christians
This creed is wrong because Allah doesn't live inside of His creation

4. ALLAH (SWT) IS ON THE ARSH ABOVE THE SEVEN HEAVENS

This is the only correct creed with regards where Allah (swt) is
I have 10 evidences to prove Allah (swt) is above the 7 heavens

Many people differ in this opinion saying Allah is everywhere
They say you are trying to limit Allah

Evidence #1

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

Evidence #2

Do you feel secure that He, Who is over the heaven (Allah), will not cause the earth to sink with you, then behold it shakes (as in an earthquake)? (Al-Mulk 67:16)

Evidence #3

Narrated By Anas: Zaid bin Haritha came to the Prophet complaining about his wife. The Prophet kept on saying (to him), "Be afraid of Allah and keep your wife." 'Aisha said, "If Allah's Apostle were to conceal anything (of the Qur'an he would have concealed this Verse." Zaynab used to boast before the wives of the Prophet and used to say, "You were given in marriage by your families, while I was married (to the Prophet) by Allah from over seven Heavens." And Thabit recited, "The Verse: 'But (O Muhammad) you did hide in your heart that which Allah was about to make manifest, you did fear the people,' (33.37) was revealed in connection with Zaynab and Zaid bin Haritha." [Sahih Bukhari (9/125) No. 7421]

Evidence #4

it is narrated that the companion Mu`awiyah ibn al-Hakam, (RA) slapped his servant girl who used to tend his sheep, and as a result went to the Prophet (SAWS) and asked what should be done as an atonement for having slapped her. The Prophet replied, "Bring her to me" so Mu`awiyah brought her to the Prophet. The Prophet then asked her, "Where is Allah?" and she replied "Above the Sky" then the Prophet asked her, "Who am I?" and she replied, "You are Allah’s Messenger", so the Prophet said, "Free her, for verily she is a true believer." [Sahih Muslim (1/381) No. 537]

Evidence #5

Anas (RA) says, “I went into the presence of Aisha (RA) whilst someone else was seated with her. The person asked, ‘O Mother of the believers, relate to us regarding earthquakes (as to their cause)’ She turned her face away. I (Anas) asked her, ‘Relate to us regarding earthquakes, O Mother of the believers!’ She said, “O Anas, if I were to inform you thereof, you will live a sorrowful life and you will die in this state of grief and you will be raised on the Day of Judgment whilst this fear is in your heart.” I said, “O Mother, relate to me.” She then said, “When a woman removes her clothes in a house other than her husband’s (an indication towards adultery), she tears the veil between her and Allah. When she applies perfume to please a male other than her husband, this will be a source of fire and a blemish for her. When the people then begin to commit adultery, consume alcohol and use musical instruments, Allah becomes enraged above the heavens and orders the Earth to shake them............ [Mustadrak al-Haakim (4/561) No. 8575 and Kitaab Al-Fitan (2/619) No. 1729]

In this hadith Aisha (ra) specify that Allah (swt) became enraged
Above the heavens…

Evidence #6

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)

Evidence #7

Ja'far Ibn Abdullah narrated: We were with Malik Ibn Anas when a man came to him and said: “O Abu Abdullah (Allah said) 'Ar-Rahman upon the Throne Istawa' (20:5), how was His Istiwa? Imam Malik inclined his head and was silent until the sweat of fever covered his brow, then he looked up and said: "Istiwa is not unknown, the Kayf (how) is uncomprehendable, believing in it is wajib (obligatory), and asking about it is bid'ah (innovation), and I do not think that you are anything but an innovator." Then he ordered that the man be expelled. [Abu-Naeem Al-Asbahani in 'Hilyatul-Awliya wa Tabaqat Al-Asfiya' (Vol. 6, pg. 325-326)]

Evidence #8

 Imam Shafi'i (rh) said: This is the evidence that Allah the Most High is above the Arsh, without specificity known to us, and He is away from His creation. There is none comparable to His and He is the All-Hearing the All-Seeing. [Tafseer al-Imam ash-Shafi'i (3/1063)]

Evidence #9

Yusuf bin Musa al-Qattan, the Shaikh of Abu Bakr al-Khallal, said: It was said to Abu Abdullah (Ahmad bin Hanbal): "Allah is above the seventh heaven, over His Throne, separate and distinct (ba'in) from His creation, and His Power and Knowledge are in every place?" He said: Yes, He is over His Throne, and nothing escapes His Knowledge. [related by Adh-Dhahabi in Mukhtasar al-Uluww (p.189)] This al-Qattan is thiqah (trustworthy) from the Shaikhs of al-Bukhari. He died in 253H, al-Khallal heard from him, and the isnaad is sahih.

Evidence #10

So, when you ask Allah (for something), ask for Al-firdaus which is the best and highest part of Paradise." (i.e. The sub-narrator added, "I think the Prophet also said, 'Above it (i.e. Al-Firdaus) is the Throne of Beneficent (i.e. Allah), and from it originate the rivers of Paradise.") [Sahih Bukhari (4/16) No. 2790]


WHO WENT ASTRAY WITH REGARDS TO TAWHEED ASMA WA SIFAAT

1. THE JEWS

Because they describe Allah (swt) with names that He did not describe Himself with
They say Allah is poor and they are rich

Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who say: "Truly, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said and their killing of the Prophets unjustly, and We shall say: "Taste you the torment of the burning (Fire)." (Aali Imran 3:181)

Allah (swt) sent the verse down when Abu Bakr As-Saddiq (ra) punched a Jew
For claiming that Allah (swt) is poor and they are rich

Abū Bakr became angry and punched the face of Finḥāṣ with a mighty blow. He then said to him: "By Him in whose Hand is my soul, if it were not for the treaty between us, O enemy of Allah, I would have killed you." Finḥāṣ went to the Messenger of Allah and said: "O Muḥammad! Look at what your companion has done to me." The Messenger of Allah asked Abū Bakr: "What has driven you to do what you did?"He said: "O Messenger of Allah , this enemy of Allah has said something very serious. He claimed that Allah is poor and they are rich. When he said that I became angry for the sake of Allah and hit his face."Finḥāṣ denied it and said "I did not say that." And so Allah revealed the verse responding to the lie of Finḥāṣ and confirming the words of Abū Bakr: When he said that I became angry for the sake of Allah and hit his face."Finḥāṣ denied it and said "I did not say that." And so Allah revealed the verse responding to the lie of Finḥāṣ and confirming the words of Abū Bakr: Indeed, Allah has heard the statement of those (Jews) who said: "Verily, Allah is poor and we are rich!" We shall record what they have said as well as their unjust killing of the Prophets, and We shall say: "Taste the punishment of the Burning Fire." [3:181] [Asbab Al-Nuzul by Al-Wahidi , trans. Mokrane Guezzou]

This came down from Allah (swt) to prove the Jew was lying
Because he denied that he said Allah is poor and he is rich.

The Jews went astray because they say Allah's Hands are tied
Meaning Allah (swt) is helpless, stingy
And that Allah (swt) cannot stop them from spreading mischief on earth

The Jews say: "Allah's Hand is tied up (i.e. He does not give and spend of His Bounty)." Be their hands tied up and be they accursed for what they uttered. Nay, both His Hands are widely outstretched. He spends (of His Bounty) as He wills. Verily, the Revelation that has come to you from Allah increases in most of them their obstinate rebellion and disbelief. We have put enmity and hatred amongst them till the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war, Allah extinguished it; and they (ever) strive to make mischief on earth. And Allah does not like the Mufsidun (mischief­makers). (Al-Ma'idah 5:64)

‘Be their hands tied up..’’ in the above ayah means
They will be known all over the world as people who are tightfisted and stingy
Allah (swt) gives from His bounties

2. THE CHRISTIANS

They went astray because they claimed that Allah (swt) begot a son
And to beget a son means to impregnate a woman by way of intercourse
Allah said in the verses below:

And they say: "The Most Beneficent (Allah) has begotten a son (or offspring or children) [as the Jews say: 'Uzair (Ezra) is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that He has begotten a son ['Iesa (Christ)], and the pagan Arabs say that He has begotten daughters (angels, etc.)]." (Maryam 19:88)
Indeed you have brought forth (said) a terrible evil thing. (Maryam 19:89)
Whereby the heavens are almost torn, and the earth is split asunder, and the mountains fall in ruins, (Maryam 19:90)
That they ascribe a son (or offspring or children) to the Most Beneficent (Allah). (Maryam 19:91)
But it is not suitable for (the Majesty of) the Most Beneficent (Allah) that He should beget a son (or offspring or children). (Maryam 19:92)

The Christians, like the Jews, have gone astray because
They accuse Allah of doing something He did not do.

Many of you will say, why do you allow the kaafir Christians and Jews
To live in the Islamic State?
It is because they had a heavenly beginning
They are people of the book
Even though their religion has been reduced to paganism
They can pay the jiziya and live in the Islamic State because
They are people of the book unlike the Yazidis

The Christians accuse Allah of resting on the 7th day
They are mortified when they ready exodus 31:17
Their argument is God has the power to do everything, so why can't He beget a son?

It is a sign between me and the children of Israel forever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. (Exodus 31:17) King James Version

We say to them, how can you accuse Allah of this?
It is because they do not understand tawheed asma wa sifaat
To describe Allah (swt) only by His Names and Attributes
Christians are poor at knowledge, they don't understand this
Only you, the Muslim understand this
You, the Muslim, are the only peopel on earth saved from lying on Allah
You are protected because you understand tawheed asma was sifaat
No fatigue touched Allah (swt) when He created the heaven and earth

…..His Kursī extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them. And He is the Most High, the Most Great. [This Verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursī.] (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. (King James Version 6:6)

In Gen 6:6 they (the Christians) claimed Allah made tawba after He made man
I know the secret code to expose Christianity because I use to be a Christian

3. THE SHIA

They went astray because they accuse Allah (swt) of things He did not do
They said Allah lies and makes mistakes

SHIA HUJJAH: “Allah often lies and does mistakes”  [Usool-al-Kafi, page 328, Yacoob Kulayni, Vol. 1]

They predict things, and when it doesn't occur
They say Allah broke His promise or changed His mind
We cannot unite with these people who have this belief!
Nor take jiziya from them
They give Allah's attributes to their Imams
Shia elevate their Imams above Allah (swt)
They say in their books that Allah makes mistakes but their Imams cannot make mistakes

SHIA HUJJAH: All the Imams are infallible just like the prophets. The Shia derives their religion from their immaculate (infallible) Imams" (Usool al Kafi, p. 22)

4. THE SUFI

They say Allah (swt) is everywhere and they don't want to accept 20:5
This is the Surah Umar (ra) read and embraced Islam

The Most Beneficent (Allah) Istawa (rose over) the (Mighty) Throne (in a manner that suits His Majesty). (Ta-Ha 20:5)

They went astray in regards to Allah's Names and Attributes
They deny attributes that Allah has affirmed for Himself
For example they deny ayah 38:75
They don't believe Allah has two Hands

(Allah) said: "O Iblis (Satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostrate to Adam) or are you one of the highly exalted?" (Sad 38:75)

We, the Muslim, read it, believe it and leave it
They say two hands mean two powers
The Ashairah, Berailvis and the tabligi jamah are guilty of this as well
They borrowed the aqeeda of two powers from the fire worshippers of Iran
They say you are giving Allah human body parts when you say He has two Hands
To believe Allah is human is Shirk
Allah is not His creation
Therefore, Allah's Hands are not human hands
Because Allah is not human
You deny Allah has hands because you believe Allah is human in your heart
So when you read the verse you dance around the Ayah
Or you put a spin on the Ayah (ta’weel)
Ta'weel means to give a dodgy tafsir to the verse


5. THE MU’TAZILA

They say Allah (swt) didn't predestine anything and man created his own actions
They believe in creators besides Allah (swt) and that is shirk
To believe that man created his own actions is major shirk
When you woke up and prayed fajr, your action was created by Allah
So why do you get baraka?
Because no one made you do it
You did it on your own accord
You were a free human being exercising your free will


TAWHEED IBADA (ULUHIYYAH)

Allah (swt) Alone Deserves to Be Worshipped
La illaha ilallah -your shahada has two parts
Negation and affirmation
la illaha is the first part
It means there is no deity worthy of worship
illalah means except Allah (swt)
And this second part is called affirmation
You affirm that you believe in Allah and Allah alone

It is worthy of mentioning that you cannot be a Muslim until you reject the taghoot
Everyone tells the Muslim to believe in Allah (swt)
But no one tells the Muslim to reject the taghoot
When you believe in Allah (swt) you are only practicing half of your shahada
Many Muslims in the 1970's died as communist
Today in our lifetime, many Muslims died as democrats
Why? Because everyone is telling the Muslims to believe in Allah
But not to reject the taghoot

Muhammad Morsi is rotting away in a prison right now
Allah (swt) disgraced him because he believed in democracy
And democracy is the religion of the shaitan
The way forward is not democracy like Morsi claimed
The way forward is Jihad like the Islamic State showed you
In Democracy it's their rules, their game
Many Muslims win elections, but the western government don't accept the results
The kuffaar of the west are low life scum of the earth
They will never accept the result when you win an election

The purpose of accepting Allah (swt) is tawheed ibada
The purpose of sending Muhammad (saw) on earth
Is to fight against people until they accept tawheed ibada not for tawheed rububiyyah
The people already believe in tawheed ar rububiyyah
Allah (swt) told you in 31:25 that the pagan Arabs already believed in tawheed ar rububiyyah

And if you (O Muhammad SAW) ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth," they will certainly say: "Allah." Say: "All the praises and thanks be to Allah!" But most of them know not. (Luqman 31:25)

On the authority of Abdullah ibn Umar (RA), that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah and that Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah, and until they establish the salah and pay the zakat. And if they do that then they will have gained protection from me for their lives and property, unless [they commit acts that are punishable] in Islam, and their reckoning will be with Allah.” [Al-Bukhari (25) and Muslim (22)]

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah[] with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. (At-Tawbah 9:29)

WHO ARE THE PEOPLE WHO WENT ASTRAY IN REGARDS TO TAWHEED IBADA?

1. THE JEWS

Because they worship their priests and rabbis as their lord besides Allah (swt)

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilah (God - Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (At-Tawbah 9:31)

The Rabbis made up a new religion for them called the Talmud
Moses (as) did not bring this
The Talmud is their holy book, in it is a lot of racism and shirk

2. THE CHRISTIANS

They say Jesus (as) is Allah (swt) so Allah made takfir on them

Surely, they have disbelieved who say: "Allah is the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)], son of Maryam (Mary)." But the Messiah ['Iesa (Jesus)] said: "O Children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Verily, whosoever sets up partners in worship with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise for him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers) there are no helpers. (Al-Ma'idah 5:72)

Surely, disbelievers are those who said: "Allah is the third of the three (in a Trinity)." But there is no ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilah (God -Allah). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall the disbelievers among them. (Al-Ma'idah 5:73)

They claim Allah is the third in a trinity
The Christians have gone astray in regards to all four tawheeds
The Jews gained Allah’s anger
The Christians have gone astray

The Way of those on whom You have bestowed Your Grace , not (the way) of those who earned Your Anger (such as the Jews), nor of those who went astray (such as the Christians). (Al-Fatihah 1:7)

After the counsel of Nicea when they gathered together
To give Christianity a pagan identity
Many Christians have never heard of the Council of Nicea
We heard about it because we are disturbed by it
Because that is when they decided to incorporate paganism into Christianity
If you ask your Christian neighbor about the Council of Nicea, he will be clueless
So the Muslim knows about Christianity more than the Christians

3. BERAILVIS

Because they pray to the graves of Muhammad (saw) and other saints
And beg them for things instead of Allah (swt)
They are grave worshippers
Allah said they are liars and kuffaar

Surely, the religion (i.e. the worship and the obedience) is for Allah only. And those who take Auliya' (protectors and helpers) besides Him (say): "We worship them only that they may bring us near to Allah." Verily, Allah will judge between them concerning that wherein they differ. Truly, Allah guides not him who is a liar, and a disbeliever. (Az-Zumar 39:3)

This Ayah is talking about the grave worshipping Berailvis
They recite Surah Fatiha daily in every salah claiming that
‘You (Allah) alone we worship and You (Allah) alone we ask for help’

You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (Al-Fatihah 1:5)

Yet they asked the people in the graves and pray to them
They are only Muslim by culture not by conviction
How many of you knew before the Prophet (saw) died,
He begged Allah (swt) not to make his grave into an idol?
Because the grave is an idol
If you don't believe that a Berailvi is an idol worshipper, you have a problem.

The following hadith to refute the grave worshippers is used by the sincere scholars
These grave worshippers pray to Muhammad (saw) and ask for things

"O Allah, do not make my grave an idol to be worshipped after me. Allah was very angry with people who took the graves of their Prophets as places of worship". (Malik, 593, Bukhari, 3765, etc.)

The following Ayah is the knockout punch for the Berailvi

If you invoke (or call upon) them, they hear not your call, and if (in case) they were to hear, they could not grant it (your request) to you. And on the Day of Resurrection, they will disown your worshipping them. And none can inform you (O Muhammad SAW) like Him Who is the All Knower (of each and everything). (Fatir 35:14)

 They can't dance around or put a spin on this Ayah (above)

Nu’man ibn Bashir (RA) narrated the Prophet (SAW) said, “The supplication is itself worship.” Then he recited. And your Lord says, “Call upon Me, and I shall answer you. Surely those who are too arrogant to worship Me, they shall enter Hell, disgraced.” (40: 60) [Tirmidhi (5/456) No. 3372, Abu Dawud (2/76) No. 1479, Ibn Majah (5/5) No. 3828, Ahmad (4/271) No. 18410]

The moment you pray to somebody else besides Allah, you have become a 5 star kaafir

Narrated By Anas: Whenever drought threatened them, 'Umar bin Al-Khattab, used to ask Al-Abbas bin 'Abdul Muttalib to invoke Allah for rain. He used to say, "O Allah! We used to ask our Prophet to invoke You for rain, and You would bless us with rain, and now we ask his uncle to invoke You for rain. O Allah ! Bless us with rain." And so it would rain. [Sahih Bukhari, Vol 2, Book 17, Hadith #123]

We say to the grave worshippers,
If it were halal to pray to Muhammad (saw) and beg him for things,
Why didn't Umar (ra)  pray to the grave of Muhammad and asked for things after he died?
Instead Umar went to Muhammad's (saw) uncle (Al-Abbas) (ra)
And begged him to ask Allah (swt) for rain
This hadith is called the knockout punch for the Berailvis

4. THE SHIA

They didn't hide their kufr
They say their Imams are gods because they have a god complex

SHIA HUJJAH: Imams are God (Jila-ul-Ayoun, Vol. No. 2, Page No. 85)

They worship their imams

5. THE NATION OF ISLAM (NOI)

Started in Chicago in the 1950's
They said Master Farad Muhammad was Allah (swt) in flesh
They have the same creed as the Christians
When Farakhan speaks, he says ‘in the name of Allah the Beneficial and Merciful who came in the person of master Farad Muhammad’
They believe he is god


REFUTING THE LIE ABOUT THE EXCUSE OF IGNORANCE

The excuse of ignorance is the argument that some people put forward saying
If a man should worship a false deity due to ignorance
On the day of resurrection, Allah (swt) will let him off
Because he did not know better
This argument is flawed and the argument of the zindeeq
The excuse of ignorance is not an excuse for shirk of worship

A person who is a mushrik cannot be a Muslim
The first argument to use against these people is 7:172
Allah (swt) took away your excuse of ignorance in this ayah

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying) : "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (Al-A'raf 7:172)

The other evidence to refute this claim ignorance is 33:67-68

And they will say: "Our Lord! Verily, we obeyed our chiefs and our great ones, and they misled us from the (Right) Way. (Al-Ahzab 33:67)
Our Lord! give them double torment and curse them with a mighty curse!" (Al-Ahzab 33:68)

Evidence from hadith is as follows:

Verily, a person said: Messenger of Allah, where is my father? He said: (He) is in the Fire. When he turned away, he (the Holy Prophet) called him and said: Verily my father and your father are in the Fire. Sahih Muslim : Book 1, Hadith 398

Ignorance is not an excuse if you worship a false deity

"...Suhail said to the Prophet "Please conclude a peace treaty with us." So, the Prophet called the clerk and said to him, "Write: بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمَنِ الرَّحِيمِ 'Bismillah ir-Rahman ir-Raheem' (In the Name of Allah, the most Beneficent, the most Merciful)." Suhail said, "As for الرَّحْمَنِ 'ar-Rahman (Beneficent), by Allah, I do not know what it means. So write: بِاسْمِكَ اللهُمَّ ‘ ismika Allahumma' (By Your Name O Allah)..." [al-Bukhari: (3/54) (2731) and Muslim (1784)]

Surah 29:65 is additional evidence

And when they embark on a ship, they invoke Allah, making their Faith pure for Him only, but when He brings them safely to land, behold, they give a share of their worship to others. (Al-'Ankabut 29:65)

This ayah proves that every kaafir knows that
He should worship Allah (swt) alone
It is your natural instinct to worship Allah alone as Allah told you in 30:30

So set you (O Muhammad SAW) your face towards the religion of pure Islamic Monotheism Hanifa (worship none but Allah Alone) Allah's Fitrah (i.e. Allah's Islamic Monotheism), with which He has created mankind. No change let there be in Khalq­illah (i.e. the Religion of Allah Islamic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [Tafsir At­Tabari, Vol 21, Page 41] (Ar-Rum 30:30)


TAUHEED HAKYMIYYAH

Tauheed Hakymiyyah means Allah (swt) is the only Legislator, The Only Lawgiver
This Tauheed has created a lot of fitna in the ummah
Because most English speaking scholars leave out this branch of Tauheed
When they write books on tauheed
So the vast majority of the English speaking community thinks that
Tauheed has only three branches
They pronounce Tauheed Hakymiyyah a bidah
This claim is ridiculous
A thing becomes a bidah if it is not mentioned in the Quran or Sunnah
But if the thing was made mention of in the Quran or Sunnah
It is haram for you to call it a bidah
The concept that Allah (swt) is the only legislator was made mentioned in the Quran
Example is 18:26

Say: "Allah knows best how long they stayed. With Him is (the knowledge of) the unseen of the heavens and the earth. How clearly He sees, and hears (everything)! They have no Wali (Helper, Disposer of affairs, Protector, etc.) other than Him, and He makes none to share in His Decision and His Rule." (Al-Kahf 18:26)

They say it is a bidah because in the time of the sahabah
We did not hear of this classification
This classification was put together by the scholars of Islam
To make it easy for you to understand Tauheed
If you are going to say Tauheed hakymiyya is a bidah,
Then you have to say Tauheed Asma Wa Sifaat is also bidah

 THE FOUR BRANCHES OF TAUHEED WERE MADE MENTIONED OF INSIDE SURAH FATIHA

All the praises and thanks be to Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinns and all that exists). (Al-Fatihah 1:2)

The above mentioned Ayah is talking about Tauheed Ar Rububiyyah
Because it speaks about Allah's Lordship
That Allah is the One and Only Lord

The Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. (Al-Fatihah 1:3)

The above mentioned Ayah refers to Tauheed Asma Wa Sifaat

The Only Owner (and the Only Ruling Judge) of the Day of Recompense (i.e. the Day of Resurrection). (Al-Fatihah 1:4)

The above mentioned Ayah refers to Tauheed Hakymiyyah
Because it says Allah is the Only Judge on the Day of Resurrection

You (Alone) we worship, and You (Alone) we ask for help (for each and everything). (Al-Fatihah 1:5)

The above mentioned Ayah refers to Tauheed Ibaada
Because it says Allah (swt) alone deserves to be worshipped

PROPHET YUSUF (AS) TAUGHT THE FOUR BRANCHES OF TAUHEED IN PRISON

"O two companions of the prison! Are many different lords (gods) better or Allah, the One, the Irresistible? (Yusuf 12:39)

In this Ayah Prophet Yusuf (as) said Allah is the One and Only Lord.
It refers to Tauheed ar Rububiyyah

"You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged), you and your fathers, for which Allah has sent down no authority. (Yusuf 12:40)

The above mentioned Ayah refers to Tauheed Asma wa Sifaat
Because Prophet Yusuf (as) rebuked the pagans of Egypt
Who served Allah (swt) with names that were forged
You have to worship Allah (swt) with His Names and Attributes that He has revealed
In the Quran or in the hadith only, not names that you forged

...... The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allah....(12:40)

The above mentioned part of the ayah represents Tauheed Hakiymiyyah
Because Prophet Yusuf said the command is for none but Allah

... He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism), that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not. (Yusuf 12:40)

The above mentioned part of the Ayah represents Tauheed Ibaada
Because Prophet Yusuf told the inmates the worship is for Allah alone

After I brought you the proof of Tauheed Hakymiyyah, how can you doubt your holy book?

 ALLAH (SWT) MENTIONED THE FOUR BRANCHES OF TAUHEED INSIDE OF AYATUL KURSI

Allah! La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He),…(2:255)

The above mentioned part of the Ayah represents Tauheed Ibaada
Because it says Allah (swt) alone deserves to be worshipped

.... Neither slumber, nor sleep overtake Him.

This part of the Ayah represents Tauheed Asma Wa Sifaat
Because it is explaining to us Allah's attributes

...To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on earth. (2:55)

This part of the Ayah represents Tauheed Rububiyyah
Because it says Allah is the owner of the heaven and earth
He is the Lord of the heaven and the earth

...Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission? [This Verse 2:255 is called Ayat-ul-Kursi.] (Al-Baqarah 2:255)

This part of the Ayah represents Tauheed Hakymiyyah
Because it says nothing happens on Judgement Day without the permission of Allah
Because Allah is the Master of the Day of Judgement

The four branches of Tauheed are in both Surah Fatiha and Ayah tul Kursi
I beg you to learn this


BEWARE OF SLIDING AND HIDING

Because Al Hakam (The Only Judge) is one of Allah's Names and Attributes,
The hypocrites realise that they cannot deny it successfully,
So out of desperation, they slide it under Tauheed ar rububiyyah
To hide it from the ummah
By doing so they are guilty of making the shaitan a Muslim
Because in Surah 15:36 the shaitan acknowledged Tauheed ar rububiyyah

Only those who hear will respond. But the dead - Allah will resurrect them; then to Him they will be returned. (Al-Hijr 15:36) Sahih International

[Iblis (Satan)] said: "O my Lord! Give me then respite till the Day they (the dead) will be resurrected." (Al-Hijr 15:36)

In the above Ayah the Shaitan declared that Allah (swt) is his Lord
Therefore, when you slide Tauheed hakiymiyyah under Tauheed ar rububiyyah
You are guilty of making the shaitan a Muslim
The two Tauheeds are separate
They don't mean the same thing
It is possible for people to believe in one but not the other
The kuffaar of Makkah believed in Tauheed ar rububiyyah
But they did not believe in Tauheed ibaada because they worshipped idols

And if you (O Muhammad SAW) ask them: "Who has created the heavens and the earth," they will certainly say: "Allah." Say: "All the praises and thanks be to Allah!" But most of them know not. (Luqman 31:25)

The people who claimed that Tauheed hakymiyyah is a bidah
Also claim that to dismantle the shariah is a minor kufr
This ideology of theirs is zandaqa (heresy)
And they went against the ijma of the ummah

We have 8 fataawa from 8 classical scholars
To prove that to dismantle the shariah is major kufr not minor kufr

1) THE FATWA OF IBN TAYMIYYAH (RA)

Shaikhul Islam 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)
  
2) THE FATWA OF IBN KATHEER (RA)

Shaikh Ibn Katheer said: "So whoever leaves the clear Shari'ah, which was revealed to Muhammad Ibn Abdullah, the Seal of the Prophets, and takes the Hukm to other than it from the laws of Kufr which are abrogated, he has disbelieved. So what about the one who takes the Hukm to the 'Yasiq' (the law of the Tartars which mixed Shari'ah rulings with invented rulings) and puts it before it?! Whoever does that, he has disbelieved by the Ijmaa' of the Muslims."("Al-Bidaayah wa Nihaayah", Vol. 13/ 119)
  
3) THE FATWA OF ALLAMA AL-SHINQITI (RH)

Shaikh 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)
  
4) THE FATWA OF AHMAD SHAAKIR (RH)

Shaikh Ahmad Shaakir said: "The matter in these fabricated laws is clear with the clearness of the sun. It is clear Kufr and there is nothing hidden about it and there is no excuse for anyone who attributes themselves to Islaam, whoever they may be, to act according to it or to submit to it or to approve of it. So each person should beware and every person is responsible for himself. So the 'Ulamaa should make the truth clear and tell what they have been ordered to tell without concealing anything."– "Umdaat At-Tafseer Mukhtasar Tafseer Ibn Katheer of Ahmad Shaakir", Vol. 4/ 173-174
  
5) ALAAMAH MUHAMMAD IBN IBRAAHEEM AAL-ASH-SHAYKH (RH)

Alaamah Muhammad Ibn Ibraaheem Aal-Ash-Shaykh (the first Grand Mufti of Saudi prior to Sh. Abdullah b. Baazsaid: "… The fifth, and it is the greatest and the most encompassing and the clearest opposition of the Shari'ah and stubbornness in the face of its laws and insulting to Allah and His Messenger and opposing the courts of the Shari'ah on their roots and branches and their types and their appearances and judgements and implementations the references and their applications. And these courts are now fully operational in the settlements of Islaam, people entering them one after another, their rulers judge upon them with what opposes the Sunnah and the Book with the rules of that law and they impose that on them and approve it for them. So what Kufr is there beyond this Kufr and what nullification of the Shahaadah ofMuhammadar Rasool-Allah is there beyond this nullification?! [Tah'keem Al-Qawaneen]

 6) 'ABDUL-LATEEF IBN 'ABDUR-RAHMAAN (MUHAMMAD IBN 'ABDUL-WAHHAB'S GREAT-GRANDSON

When asked concerning what the Bedouins judge with, according to the customs of their fathers and grandfathers. "Do we label them with Kufr after it is made clear to them (that this is not permissible but still they continue)?" So he answered: "Whoever takes the judgement to other than the Book of Allah and the Sunnah of His Messenger after it is made clear to him (that this is not permissible), then he is a Kaafir. He (Allah), ta'ala said:'And whosoever does not judge by what Allâh has revealed, such are the Kâfirûn. ' (Ma'idah 5, Verse 44)(And He (Allah) ta'ala also said) 'Is it other than the Deen of Allah that they seek? ' (Ma'idah 5, Verse 50) 
(And He ta'ala also said)'Have you seen those (hyprocrites) who claim that they believe in that which has been sent down to you, and that which was sent down before you, and they wish to go for judgement (in their disputes) to the Tâghût (false judges, etc.) while they have been ordered to reject them. ' (Nisa 4, Verse 60)

'And the Aayaat with this meaning are many."["Dur'ur As-Saneeyah fi'Al-Ajwibah An-Najdeeyah", Vol. 8/ 231 Published by "Dar Al-Iftaa' bil'Saudeeyah" 1385 H]

 7) SHAIKH MUHAMMAD IBN SAALIH AL-'UTHAYMEEN

Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Saalih al-'Uthaymeen said: "The first type is when the Hukm of Allah is removed and replaced with another Taghuutee Hukm, so that the Hukm of the Shari'ah is eliminated between the people and he puts in its place another Hukm from the fabrication of the humans and they remove the laws of the Shari'ah concerning the Mu'amalah (i. e. the general actions between people) and they put in its place fabricated laws and this, without doubt, is Istib'daal (i.e. replacement) of the Shari'ah of Allah subhaanahuu wa-ta'ala, with other than it. And this is Kufr which removes one from the Milla because this person put himself at the level of the Creator because he shara'a (legislated) for the slaves of Allah that which Allah ta'ala did not give permission for and that is Shirk in His, ta'ala's saying:
: "Or have they partners with Allâh (false gods), who have instituted for them a religion, which Allâh has not allowed?"(Ash-Shu'ara, 21) -"Fiqh Al-'Ebaadaat", #60

 8) SHAIKH ABDUL-'AZEEZ IBN 'ABDULLAH IBN BAAZ

Shaikh Abdul-'Azeez Ibn 'Abdullah Ibn Baaz said: "There is no Eeman for the one who believes the laws of the people and their opinions are superior to the Hukm of Allah and His Messenger or that they are equal to it or that they resemble it or who leaves it or replaces it with fabricated laws and institutions invented by people, even if he believes that the laws of Allah are more encompassing and more just."[Wujoob Tah'keem Shari'ah Allah' (pg. 16-17)]


EVERY ERA HAS A FITNA

In the time of Prophet Adam (as) the fitan were envy, jealousy and murder
This was why Cain killed Abel

Abdullah Ibn Mas‘ud (RA) narrated the Messenger of Allah (SAW) said: “No soul is killed unlawfully, but there is a share of the sin on the first son of Adam, because he was the first one to set the precedent of killing.” [Related by al-Bukhari (3335) and Muslim (1677)]

In the time of Prophet Noah (as) the fitna was idol worshipping
The first people to worship idols were the people of Noah

Ibn 'Abbas (RA) said: "Between Nooh (Noah) and Adam were ten generations, all of them were upon Sharee'ah (law) of the truth, then they differed. So Allah sent prophets as bringers of good news and as warners." Related by Ibn Jareer at-Tabaree in his tafseer (4/275) No. 4048 and al-Haakim (2/596) No. 4009 who said: "It is authentic according to the criterion of al-Bukhari." Adh-Dhahabe also agreed]

In the time of Prophet Shuaib (as) the fitna was cheating with the scales

In the time of Prophet Lut (as) the fitna was homosexuality
Nobody did that before them

And (remember) Lout (Lot), when he said to his people: "Do you commit the worst sin such as none preceding you has committed in the 'Alamin (mankind and jinns)? (Al-A'raf 7:80)
"Verily, you practise your lusts on men instead of women. Nay, but you are a people transgressing beyond bounds (by committing great sins)." (Al-A'raf 7:81)

The so-called muslim gay community try to refute this ayah by saying
They do not practice lust, they practice love.
You say to them Allah (swt) has made takfir on homosexuals in the Quran
Whether you practice love or lust
Love or lust is neither here nor there
Because Allah has made takfir on you in the Quran
The hujjah for this - 51:35-36

So We brought out from therein the believers. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:35)
But We found not there any household of the Muslims except one [i.e. Lout (Lot) and his two daughters]. (Adh-Dhariyat 51:36)

Those of you who say a gay can be a Muslim, you are heretics

In the time of Prophet Musa (as) the fitna was Black Magic

In the time of Prophet David (as) the fitna was they tampered with the sabbath
So Allah (swt) turned them into apes and swine
Allah mentions this in 5:60.

Say (O Muhammad SAW to the people of the Scripture) : "Shall I inform you of something worse than that, regarding the recompense from Allah: those (Jews) who incurred the Curse of Allah and His Wrath, those of whom (some) He transformed into monkeys and swines, those who worshipped Taghut (false deities); such are worse in rank (on the Day of Resurrection in the Hell­fire), and far more astray from the Right Path (in the life of this world)." (Al-Ma'idah 5:60)

In the time of Prophet Isa (Jesus) (as) they abandoned the Torah
And followed the elders of Zion

They (Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allah (by obeying them in things which they made lawful or unlawful according to their own desires without being ordered by Allah), and (they also took as their Lord) Messiah, son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded [in the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)) to worship none but One Ilah (God - Allah) La ilaha illa Huwa (none has the right to be worshipped but He)[]. Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (At-Tawbah 9:31)

They took their rabbis and priest as lords besides Allah (swt)
Jesus (as) called them hypocrites

In the time of the Prophet Muhammad (saw)
The fitna was worshipping Laat, Uzza, hubal and minat

And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world[]]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do. (Al-Anfal 8:39)

In the time of Abu Bakr (ra) the fitna was some people refused to pay the zakah
So he made takfir on them and fought them

Abu Hurayra said, "When the Messenger of Allah (SAW), died and Abu Bakr was khalifa and those of the Arabs who were going to reject rejected, 'Umar said, 'How can we fight people when the Messenger of Allah said, "I am commanded to fight people until they say, 'There is no god but Allah.' [al-Bukhari and Muslim]

In the time of Uthman (ra) the fitna was Abdullah ibn Saba
He was the founder of the Shia movement
His shahada was fake
He took the shahada to sow the seeds of discord among the shahabah

In the time of Ali (ra) the fitna was the khawarij
They killed the Muslims and left alone the kuffaar

In the time of Ahmed ibn Hanbal (rh) the fitna was that of the Mu’tazillites
Who claimed the Quran was created

Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal said,”Whoever says that the Qur’an is created is a kaafir; do not say salam to him, neither pray behind him nor sit with him.” Masail ibn Hani Pg 154 Vol.2 fekrah 1863

In the time of Ibn Taymiyyah (rh) the fitna was the Jahmiyyah
Who deny Allah's 99 Names and Attributes
Because of that Ibn Taymiyyah introduced Tauheed Asma wa Sifaat
To refute the Jahmiyyah
Nobody said ibn Taymiyyah did bidah

In our time the fitna is the dismantling of the Shariah
And because of that, Muhammad Ibraheem said:

Muhammad Ibrahim [the shaikh of bin Baaz] said in Page 6 of his book Tahkeen Qawaneen: “Tauheed haakimiyya is the twin half of Tauheed Ibaada.”

We close by saying, because Shariah is the fitna of our time
When we deny Tauheed Haakimiyyah
We are not solving the problem
We are aggravating the problem
We deny what is known in Islam by necessity
And when we slide hakymiyyah under rububiyyah
We are guilty of making shaitan a Muslim


Question 1: Who can I listen to in Arabic?

Answer 1: Listen to Dr. Muhammad Al Jazouli (May Allah hastens his release)
Some of his lectures have English subtitles as well
His aqeeda is authentic


Question 2: What is authentic Tauheed vs. non-authentic Tauheed?

Answer 2: Non authentic Tauheed is when they slide one tauheed underneath another
Like sliding Tauheed hakymiyyah under rububiyyah
And claim both Tauheeds mean the same thing
When they do this, they make the shaitan a Muslim

Another example is to say
To dismantle the shariah is minor kufr
Refer to the notes for the 8 fatawa to prove othewise

Another example is when they say if you commit major kufr,
You are not a kaafir unless you make it halal with your tongue
That is irjaa - the creed of the murji (liberal)
This condition is for minor kufr not major kufr

Another example is when they claim ignorance is an excuse
For those who worship a false deity
That is not an excuse - we have already refuted this
Allah (swt) took away this excuse in 7:172

And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying) "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this." (Al-A'raf 7:172)


Question 3: Is Tauheed uluhiyya the same as tawhheed ibadah

Answer 3: Yes, there is no difference between these two Tauheeds
Different scholars call them different names
It means Allah (swt) alone deserves to be worshipped


Question 4: Will there be another Tauheed after the 4th branch or is it the seal of Tauheed?

Answer 4: The big secret about Tauheed is Allah (swt) has 99 Names and Attributes
And each name is a Tauheed by itself
There is no need for a 5th Tauheed right now
Because we don't have any fitna as regards to Allah's names

For example, Nation Of Islam (NOI) said the white man was created
By a mad scientist called Yacub
Their ideology contradicts one of Allah's names - Al Khaaliq (The Only Creator)
How can a man create another man

MAD SCIENTIST YAKUB: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakub_(Nation_of_Islam)

So whenever anyone comes with anything
We will use the Names and Attributes of Allah (swt) to refute them


Question 5: Can we consider that the fitna of Ali (ra) was the fighting between Muslims?

Answer 5: There is no doubt, it was a fitna
Because when Ali (ra) fought the khawarij, he did not make takfir on them


Question 6: Is tauheed and aqeedah the same thing?

Answer 6: Aqeedah means what you believe in
You are tied to your belief and that is why it's called aqeedah
The aqeedah of the Christians is called trinity for example
The aqeedah of the Muslim is called monotheism


Question 7: Which Shariah did Nuh (AS) follow, did he follow the sharia of Adam (as) or he had a new shariah?

Answer 7: The shariah of Nuh (as) was new
Because the children of Adam (as) married each other
Eve gave birth to twins and they swapped for marriage
Cain killed his brother because he wanted to marry his own twin sister
He thought she was prettier
The first murder was committed over a woman


Question 8: Is it halal to make takfir on a nationalist/patriot?

Answer 8: It's only halal to make takfir on him if he prefers nationalism over shariah
Everybody has an element of nationalism in their heart
Therefore you cannot make takfir of everyone
But you make takfir on the nationalist who prefers it over his Muslim brother
