Assalamu’alaikum waramatullahi barakatuh,
Dear Brothers and Sisters, one of the most important aspects of Islam is Tawhed – the belief in the oneness of Allah (swt). Without this principle of monotheism, Islam would have no foundations and everything would fall apart. Of all the great sins, the only one that Allah (swt) will not forgive, is that of polytheism once a human being is aware of the existence of Allah (swt). This is commonly referred to as ‘shirk’.
There is major shirk, where a person openly (or secretly) associates anyone or anything with the greatness of our Lord Allah (swt). Then there is minor shirk, where a person only associates minor things in life with the greatness of Allah (swt), though this can be done unknowingly. There is a lot to learn dear Brothers and Sisters, and as devout Muslims it should be our goal to acquire as much knowledge as possible.
And we must stress – this is not only in regards to Muslim literature, it is also includes things that revolve around your daily life. Things such as your work, your education, and of course your family. Our religion is the religion of moderation dear Brothers and Sisters – extremism is not in our roots. In the end, remember – Allah (swt) has commanded us to treat our families fairly and equally, for it is our wives and children that make half our deen.
At-Tirmidhi Hadith 3096 Narrated by Anas ibn Malik
Allah’s Messenger (peace be upon him) said, “When a man marries he has fulfilled half of the ‘deen’; so let him fear Allah regarding the remaining half.”
Haji Hamith worked hard to have the Book of Tawhed written in Khmer, you can find it attached below along with the Kitab-at-Tawhed written by Sheikh-ul-Islam Muhammad bin Abdul Wahab. There are many misconceptions by our Muslims and non-Muslim peers alike when it comes to the topic of Tawhed and I implore you all – please give these books a read to try and understand what the underlying topic is all about.
The book provides an in-depth look at the basics of Tawhed, what a Muslim must entail in his belief in the oneness of Allah and what to avoid in order to show in the believer’s heart there can be only one God, and that is Allah (swt).
Juzuk’um Allah khair!
