An Introduction to Believing in Allāh

An Introduction to Believing in Allāh

Author: Al ʿAllāmah Ṣāliḥ al Fawzān

Topic: Belief in Allāh

Reference: Al Irshād ila Ṣaḥīḥ al ʿItiqād: P. 27

This is the basis of Creed and its source, it means:

The firm belief that Allāh is the Lord and Owner of everything in existence;

He is the sole creator, the sole Disposer of Affairs, He is the only one worthy of being worshiped, having no partners and anything else worshiped besides Him is false and the worship presented to them is false. Allāh the Elevated said:

That is because Allāh – He is the Truth (the only True God of all that exists, Who has no partners or rivals with Him), and what they (the polytheists) invoke besides Him, it is Baatil (falsehood). And indeed Allāh, He is the Most High, the Most Great. [Al Ḥajj: 62]

Allāh is attributed with the most complete and majestic Attributes, He is Exalted from every deficiency and fault, this is Monotheism in its three categories:

Monotheism of Lordship Monotheism of Worship and Monotheism of His Names and Attributes.

وهو أساس العقيدة وأصلها ، وهو يعني الاعتقاد الجازم بأن الله رب كل شيء ومليكه ، وأنه الخالق وحده ، المدبر للكون كله ، وأنه هو الذي يستحق العبادة وحده لا شريك له ، وأن كل معبود سواه فهو باطل وعبادته باطلة ، قال تعالى

ذَلِكَ بِأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْحَقُّ وَأَنَّ مَا يَدْعُونَ مِنْ دُونِهِ هُوَ الْبَاطِلُ وَأَنَّ اللَّهَ هُوَ الْعَلِيُّ الْكَبِيرُ الحج: 62

وأنه سبحانه متصف بصفات الكمال ونعوت الجلال ، منزه عن كل نقص وعيب ، وهذا هو التوحيد بأنواعه الثلاثة

توحيد الربوبية

وتوحيد الألوهية

وتوحيد الأسماء والصفات
