Below are selected chapters that have been translated and annotated:
|Sypnosis: deals with the importance of recognising Allah’s blessings and attributing them to Him, Most High. It is not befitting for the recipient of blessings to attribute them to others, forgetting the One in whose hand lies all good.|
|Sypnosis: commences a series of chapters that deal with the notion of setting up ‘partner-gods’ with Allah, having due propriety in all aspects of our relationship with our Lord, Most High, and avoiding anything that may suggest shirk, albeit subtly.|
|Chapter 43:||What is Reported Concerning Someone who is not
Persuaded by an Oath Taken by Allah
|Sypnosis: deals with the entity used when swearing on oaths. It emphasises the importance of showing due veneration to Allah and the place that He has in the Muslims’ heart. The chapter also highlights the importance of being truthful and having fine conduct.|
|Chapter 44:||‘Whatever Allah willed and you willed.’|
|Sypnosis: deals with ascribing knowledge to Allah alone, and continues the theme of the previous chapter. It shows that swearing by any object besides Allah is to display a level of veneration to that object which is unbefitting. It also shows that we must show due propriety, not just in our beliefs, but in the very words we use when talking about Allah.|
|Chapter 45:||Whoever Abuses Time has Derogated Allah|
|Sypnosis: continues the same theme and discusses the prohibition of cursing time and Allah, the Most High’s relationship to it. It also explores the notion that “Allah is time”.|
|Chapter 46:||The Appellation ‘Judge of Judges’ and the likes|
|Sypnosis: explores the usage of grand titles such as ‘king of kings’ or ‘judge of judges’. As the chapter discusses, man must constantly be aware of Allah’s supremacy and humble himself in respect to his Creator, the chapter also shows the various methods Islam has put in place to preserve Tawhid and prevent shirk.|
|Chapter 47:||Revering the Names of Allah
& Changing One’s Name as a Result
|Sypnosis: continues the theme of revering Allah and bearing in mind His supremacy. It discusses a range of issues such as changing one’s name or choosing a kunya, and addresses reverence for Allah’s Names and Attributes as well as affirming Tawhid al-Asma’ wa’l-Sifat.|
|Chapter 48:||Someone who Mocks Anything Containing the Mention of Allah,
or the Qur’an, or the Messenger
|Sypnosis: discusses mockery of Allah, the Qur’an and His Messenger. This topic is extremely pertinent for Muslims who live in the West as they can find themselves among those who mock the religion of Islam. Additionally, some Muslims use the religion as a source of jokes which can lead to extremely severe consequences in this life and the Hereafter.|
|Sypnosis: uses a verse of the Qur’an to demonstrate that Allah is the giver of everything and man only succeeds due to the grace of Allah, Most High. It is a stark reminder that pride and arrogance will lead one to the Hell-fire.|
|Sypnosis: continues the theme of the previous chapter and stresses that it is Allah who blesses one with children. It further discusses the difference between shirk in obedience and shirk in worship. Additionally, the author writes about the impermissibility of naming one’s offspring with names such as Abdu’l-Ka`bah and the likes.|
MashaAllah Very useful & Informative content . Allah Bless all of us.
Mash Allah Your website contains such a wonderful content based on different topics. thanks for the useful sharing . Keep it up 🙂
JazakiAllah Ustazah for this knowledge.
What I have understood from this chapter is that we are to consider good fortune that comes is from Allah, because of His Grace.
I have gone through kitab at tawheed once before with the aid of a mentor.
Is it wrong to hope for good from Allah. Will there not be ease after suffering?
I ask particularly because I am going through some difficulty in my life right now. I hope for some succor, some good to come after this. Is it wrong to ‘expect’ good will come after this?
Good comes only by His Grace and it is not incumbent for Him to give good tidings ? Is this the lesson from this chapter or not?
Can u please explain ?
I was wondering if it is at all possible to view your pages in Arabic, as its much easier to understand for my family and I.
cannot wait for the publication of the book…… just a reminder, please make available the arabic text for the ahyat and the aahadith, in the published work…..
jazak Allah kahiran
