  • PREVIOUS TOPICSAll Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • BELIEVE IN THE ONE GOD WHO ALONE IS THE CREATOR DIVINE.

    (AL-KHALIQ-QIYYAH )BELIEVE IN THE ONE GOD WHO ALONE IS THE SUSTAINER DIVINE.

    ( AR-RUB-BUBIYYAH )This is not unique to Muslims. Even pagan worshippers and idolaters acknowledge this.

    This is where Muslims differ with pagan worshippers, idolaters and unbelievers, because they erroneously ascribe to others besides Allah similar Divine roles in the Sustainment of this universe.

    All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • It can be discerned that peoples idea or knowledge that God exist, generally pertains to Him being the Creator.But, when we further consider Gods role in the universe and mans life, differences occur.Those who deny Him as the only Absolute Sustainer, Cherisher of the universe, would inadvertently be ascribing to others this divine role.

    BELIEVE IN THE ONE GOD

    WHO ALONE IS THE DIVINE. ( AL-ULUHIYYAH )WHO IS THE DIVINE ?All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Therefore, because some peoples knowledge of God as Divine may still be ambiguous, they need to have clear understanding of what we mean by Divinity and the concept of the Divine termed Uluhiyyah.

    That in regard to God being Divine (ILAAH) there is only One, Who alone is the Divine, without associates or partners.

    If they even accept or imagine the possibility of there being another Divine, it is termed SHIRK.

    Islam rejects this for our belief is termed TAUHEED AL-ULUHIYYAH.

  • Knowledge concerning the Divine (ILAAHIYAT)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Knowledge concerning the Divine (ILAAHIYAT)Say : He is Allah, the Absolute One. Allah is the Eternal, the Most Besought of all *, He begets not, and neither is He begotten; and there is nothing that could be compared to Him.(Quran: al-Ikhlas: 112: 1-4)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • [1] The name, proper noun for God is ALLAH He, most Exalted, is the Absolute One: indivisible, unique, the only Divine, without any other, before or after.

    If one entertains the possibility of another like Allah, then his understanding of what constitute the Divinity is flawed.

    Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICSAll Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICS Allah : Arabic proper noun; name for God, it refers to the One and Only, the Unique Creator, Lord Sustainer of the Universe, Who Alone is God there is none besides Allah. No equivalent translation in non-Semitic language.

    All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICS[2] Allah is referred to as As-Somad (in Arabic) which has a profound meaning.There is no equivalent word for it in English, and requires explanations.*the original Arabic word As-Somad means the Eternal, the Uncaused Cause of all beingAll Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICS As-Somad is therefore applied to God Alone. It comprises the concept of the Primary Cause and Eternal, independent Being; and also the idea that everything existing or conceivable goes back to Him as its source; and is therefore dependent on Him for its beginning as well as for its continued existence.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICS[3] Allah is the only Divine.Islam categorically refute any false notion which people ascribe to the Divine, especially that of God procreating (begetting another God).A Divine exists without need for any other, whereas son requires a father. These two terms together are antithetical (contradictory and absurd).All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Criterion which clarify our concept of GodPREVIOUS TOPICS[4] Since Allah is Unique and the only Divine, there is nothing that can be compared to Him, absolutely there can be no equivalent.

    Whatever we can visualize or imagine, fall short of Allahs Exaltedness, and must be negated - Glory be to Allah ( SUB-HAANALLAAH ! ). All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Only Allah is the God (al- ilaah), there is no other that is God except Allah.

    LAA-ILAA-HA-IL-LALLAAHPREVIOUS TOPICSAll Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • IMPORTANT TO NOTEConceptually regarding this aspect, i.e. to only regard Allah as the only Absolute One in His Divinity (ULUHIYYAH), and to regard Allah as the only Absolute Sustainer (RUBBUBIYYAH) marks the True Criterion in the belief in the Oneness of Allah.

    PREVIOUS TOPICSThose who assert that the non-Muslims, including even the MUSHRIKEEN in Makkah during the Prophets period also adhere to TAUHEED AR-RUBUBIYYAH, are grossly mistaken. Acknowledging Allah as the exclusive ROBB-AL-AA-LAMEEN, is one of the cornerstone of TAUHEED - to be attested and affirmed daily in our prayer which the others do not truly acknowledge.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • SAY: "O you who deny the truth (AL-KAAFIRUN)! I do not worship that (MABUD) which you worship, and neither do you worship that (MABUD) which I worship! And I will not worship that (MABUD) which you have [ever] worshipped, and neither will you [ever] worship that (MABUD) which I worship. Unto you, your DEEN (religion and moral law), and unto me, mine!(Quran: al-Kaafirun: 109: 1-6)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • LIMITLESS in His glory is thy Sustainer, the Lord of almightiness, [exalted] above anything that men may (attribute) devise by way of definition!(Quran: Shaffat: 37: 108)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Utterly remote is Allah, in His limitless glory, from anything to which men may ascribe a share in His divinity!!(Quran: Shaffat: 59: 23)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • MUQADDIMAH INTRODUCTIONThis is one of the traditional approaches in ensuring the understanding of attributes of Allah, amongst Muslims who are exposed to other religious or philosophical views, does not deviate from that of the pious predecessors (Salafus-Soleheen)

  • "(To know Allah) Think and reflect upon Allah's attributes (Sifaat) and do not try to think of (reality of) His Essence (Dzat).

    (Hadith reported by Abu-Shaykh al Jami : 134 Risalah Tauhid)All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • When the Quran was revealed, it succinctly expounded and clarify the message of TAUHEED, in the best Arabic to the Arabic-speaking people whose mastery of Arabic was at the highest.In fact, the Arabs then, had recognized the Quran as a miracle - Divinely revealed - not the speech of man. And they knew very well the metaphors, the linguistic eloquence, the profound and depth to meanings, the detail and the general, etc. of the Quranic language - which to them, are adequately self-explanatory.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)

  • Unfortunately, mastery of the Quranic (classical) Arabic language amongst the Muslim masses tends to diminish, or it may become weakened , except amongst Islamic scholars. Thus the Muslims in general, have had to rely upon Islamic jurists and scholars from whichever MADZAAHIB (schools of theology and jurisprudence), to guide them regarding the teaching of Islam.Each strove to preserve and transmit the traditional scholastic methods of understanding the primary sources (AL-QURAN and AHADITH) and continue teaching these wisdom to the masses.All Rights Reserved Zhulkeflee Hj Ismail (2015)
