رِسَالَةٌ أُخرَى فِي كَلِمَةِ التَّوْحِيدِ
وَكَوْنُهَا تَنْفِى أَرْبَعًا وَتُثْبِتُ أَرْبَعًا

Another Pamphlet Regarding Kalimat'ut Tawhîd
(La Ilaha Illallâh) & Four Issues That It Negates
and Four Issues That It Affirms

Muhammad bin Abd'il Wahhâb Rahimahullâh

Shaykh'ul Islâm Rahimahullâhu Taâlâ said:

May Allâh have mercy upon you, know that the meaning of La Ilaha Illallâh is Nafy (negation) and Ithbât (affirmation). It (La Ilaha Illallâh) negates 4 issues and confirms 4 issues as well.

It negates the "Âlihah (pl. Ilah; -fake- deities)", the "Tawâghît (pl. Tâghût; -false- objects of worship)", the "Andâd (pl. Nidd; rivals, equals, partners)", and the "Arbâb (pl. Rabb; Lords/Masters)":

The "Âlihah" are: That which you direct yourself towards to bring forth goodness and dispel harm. Thus, you take it as an Ilah.

The "Tawâghît" are: Those who are worshipped and is pleased by being worshipped or is presented as someone Ibâdah (worship) should be directed to. Such as as-Sammân, Tâj, or Abû Hadîdah.

The "Andâd" are: Everything that hinders you from the Dîn of Islâm; from your family, home, tribe, or wealth is a "Nidd". This is due to the statement of Allâhu Taâlâ,

"And of mankind are some who take (for worship) others besides Allah as Andâd (pl. Nidd; rivals, equals, partners to Allâh), they love them as they love Allâh..." (al-Baqarah 2/165)

The "Arbâb" are: Those who issue Fatâwâ (pl. Fatwâ; verdicts) which oppose the truth for you and those who you obey. This is confirming Allâhu Taâlâ's statement,

"They (the Jews and Christians) took their rabbis and their monks to be their lords besides Allâh, and (they also took as their Lord) al-Masîh (Messiah), son of Maryam (Mary), while they (Jews and Christians) were commanded to worship none but One Ilah, La Ilaha Illa Huwa (there is no -true- deity -worthy of worship- except He). Praise and glory be to Him, (far above is He) from having the partners they associate (with Him)." (at-Tawbah 9/31)

The Kalimah also confirms four issues:

Al-Qasd (directing): It is you not directing to anything except Allâh.

At-Ta'dhîm (glorification) and al-Mahabbah (love): This is due to the statement of Allâh Azza wa Jalla,

"But those who believe, love Allâh more (than anything else)." (al-Baqarah 2/165)

Al-Khawf (fear) and ar-Rajâ (hope): This is due to the statement of Allâhu Taâlâ,

"And if Allâh should touch you with adversity, there is no remover of it except Him; and if He intends for you good, then there is no repeller of His bounty. He causes it to reach whom He wills of His servants. And He is al-Ghafûr (the Forgiving), ar-Rahîm (the Merciful)." (Yûnus 10/107)

Whoever knows this will have cut his relation with other than Allah, and the grim look of al-Bâtil (falsehood) will have no significance for him. As Allâh informed us of Ibrâhîm, may the Best Peace and Blessings (of Allâh) be upon Our Nabî (Muhammad) and Him (Ibrâhîm), regarding him breaking the idols and distancing from his tribe,

"Indeed there has been an excellent example for you in Ibrâhîm and those with him, when they said to their people, "Verily, we are free from you and whatever you worship besides Allâh, we have rejected you..." (al-Mumtahinah 60/4)

1-Al-Jawâhir'ul Mudhiyyah, 34-35 (the copy in Majmû'at'ur Rasâ'il wa'l Masâ'il'in Najdiyyah, 4/34-35).
"If the ignorant persists, gets haughty, is determined upon his transgression and misguidance, chooses blindness over guidance, and if what he falls into and disputes with regards to is Shirk Akbar (major Shirk) that brings the person who commits it out of the fold of the faction of Muslims to the party of polytheists, then in this case, the just verdict is the sword!" (al-Fath'ur Rabbânî min Fatâwâ'l Imâm ash-Shawkânî, 1/185)
