Asalamu alaykum warahmatullah!
This is part four of the first lesson in Islamic creed (Aqidah) Lesson. This one is ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY pertinent.
There follows the third category of analysis of Tawhid and Islamic Monotheism
Categories of Analysis of Tawhid continued
3- Tawhid al ‘Ibaadah- (Oneness of Allah in His right to be worshipped alone).
We understand that Allah is the Lord of all that exists, He is the Sustainer, The Protector, The Provider, The Ever-Living, The Self-Subsisting, uncreated Eternal Creator, whose names and attributes are perfect, and there is no similitude to Him.
Once we recognise this, we must ultimately come to the conclusion that The Supreme Creator, Allah, is surely the only One deserving of our worship and devotion.
Undoubtedly, He is the One providing for us and the One who originated us, without any need for us whatsoever. Allah is the Rich, Free of all needs, The Praiseworthy. Allah’s existence does not depend on anything, for He is the Self-Existing and Self-Sustaining. Yet we, as mere created beings, must be cognisant of the fact that we are in need, we are poor, we are powerless. We NEED Allah. We need to worship Him, because this is the purpose for which we were created. And whether we worship Allah or not, this does not add or detract from His Majesty and Might in the least bit, for He is The Self-Sufficient master whom all creatures need.
In sha Allah we will mention some proofs from the authentic Islamic texts regarding the content in the previous lessons.
Thanks for your attention, our beloveds.
May Allah be Merciful to us all and forgive our numerous sins. ameen.
with love for the sake of Allah,
