Tawheed - The Three Fundamental Principles
Sh. Ahmad Musa Jibril.
Sheikh Ahmad was born in the United States, and spent part of his childhood in the city of Madina in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia when his father, Sheikh Musa Jibril, was a student at the Islamic University of Madina. It was there where Sheikh Ahmad also became Hafidh al Qur'an at the age of 11. Sheikh Ahmad then spent the rest of his younger years back in the United States graduating from high school in 1989. Thereafter, he studied at the Islamic University of Madina as his father did, and graduated with a degree in the Shari'a. He returned to the United States and finished his JD/LLM (masters of law) degree from Michigan law schools. May Allah (azza wajal) reward him and his family. Ameen.

InshaAllah, through this humble effort, we want to bring rightly guided committed beliefs and dedicated practices of Islam in it's pure form as intended by the Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alayhi wa sallam), and understood by his companions, and practiced by the followers of the companions, and subsequently by their followers the tabi'een and tabi' tabi'een back into every aspect of life for all members of the Muslim ummah.

May Allah reward you all for your efforts. Ameen.

    Outline:
    -Tafseer and overview of the verses the author used:
    ----------------------------------------­----------------
    1. (And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate yourselves not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate yourselves to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him) 41:37

    2. (Indeed your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in Six Days, and then He rose over (Istawa) the Throne (really in a manner that suits His Majesty). He brings the night as a cover over the day, seeking it rapidly, and (He created) the sun, the moon, the stars subjected to His Command. Surely, His is the Creation and Commandment. Blessed is Allah, the Lord of the 'Alamin (mankind, jinn and all that exists)!7:54
    ----------------------------------------­----------------

    -Allah (Subhanu watala) created the heavens and earths in 6 days; 4 for the earth and 2 for the heavens.
    -Cleaning the misconception some have pertaining to the verses on that.
    -The opinions of the ulama on the wisdom in creating the heavens and earth in 6 days instead of instantly.

    ----------------------------------------­----------------
    THE AUTHOR SAID:(The Lord is the one who is worshipped)

    The proof is: (O mankind! Worship your Lord (Allah), Who created you and those who were before you so that you may become Al-Muttaqun
    Who has made the earth a resting place for you, and the sky as a canopy, and sent down water (rain) from the sky and brought forth therewith fruits as a provision for you. Then do not set up rivals unto Allah (in worship) while you know (that He Alone has the right to be worshipped) 2:21-22

    Ibn Katheer Rahimahu Allah said (the Lord is the one who is worshipped)
    ----------------------------------------­----------------

    -The proper meaning the author meant when saying (the Lord is the one who is worshipped)
    -Brief bio of ibn Katheer (Rahimahu Allah).

    ----------------------------------------­----------------
    THE AUTHOR SAID:(The types of worship which Allaah commanded:)
    ----------------------------------------­----------------

    -ibadat are both obligatory and recommended
    Obligatory and recommended each has a heart category, a sayings category and an action category.

    ----------------------------------------­----------------
    THE AUTHOR SAID: (Like: Islaam, eemaan and ihsaan).
    ----------------------------------------­----------------

    -The author gives examples of Ibadat.
    Islam, Emann and ehsan plus 14 other ones.

    Outline:
    وَالْدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى: الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ -
    The proof is "All praise is for Allaah, the Lord of all creation.

    -Word for word tafseer of (All praise is for Allaah, the Lord of all creation.)

    وكُلُّ مَنْ سِوَى الْلَّهِ عَالَمٌ
    وَأَنَا وَاحِدٌ مِنْ ذَلِكَ الْعَالَمِ.
    Everything besides Allaah is a created being and I am one of the creation

    فَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ: بِمَ عَرَفْتَ رَبَّكَ؟
    So if it is said to you: 'How did you arrive at this knowledge of
    your Lord?
    فَقُلْ: بِآيَاتِهِ وَمَخْلُوقَاتِهِ،
    Then say: 'Through His signs and those things which He has
    created;

    -The three covenants.

    -Proof for knowing (who is your lord) is through:
    Intellect
    Text
    and signs
    -Intellect proof is always under the umbrella of textual proof.
    (examples of each)

    -There are two types of Ayaat.(The revealed way)(The signs)

    -Which type of Ayaat did the author intend?
    3 scenarios وَمِنْ آيَاتِهِ: الْلَّيْلُ، وَالْنَّهَارُ،
    واَلشَّمْسُ، وَالْقَمَرُ،
    and from his signs are the night and the day, the sun and the moon;


    وَمِنْ مَخْلُوقَاتِهِ: الْسَّمَوَاتُ الْسَّبْعُ،
    وَالْأَرَضُونَ الْسَّبْعُ،
    and from that which He has created are the seven heavens, and the
    seven earths

    وَمَنْ فِيهِنَّ،
    and all those within them,

    وَمَا بَيْنَهُمَا؛
    and whatever is between them

    -Why did he separate between the moon, sun, day and night in one sentence and then in another mention the earth and the heavens?

    -Belief in Allah (subhanu watala) through the signs and creations refuting atheists or doubts in Allah (subhanu watala).

    How to resist doubts in Allah (subhanu watala) if they come knocking on your heart.

    -The prophet Sallah Allahu Alieh Wasalam used to look to the sky before his Qiyaam prayer and recite:
    (Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed signs for men of understanding)

    فَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ: مَا الْأُصُولُ الْثَّلَاثَةُ الْتِّي يَجِبُ عَلَى
    الْإِنْسَانِ مَعْرِفَتُهَا؟
    فَقُلْ: مَعْرِفَةُ الْعَبْدِ رَبَّهُ
    ، وَدِينِهُ، وَنَبِيَّهُ مُحَمَّدًا .
    فَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ:مَنْ رَبُّكَ؟ فَقُلْ: رَبِّيَ الْلَّهُ
    الَّذِي رَبَّانِي وَرَبَّى جَمِيعَ الْعَالَمِينَ بِنِعَمِهِ،
    وَهُوَ مَعْبُودِي لَيْسَ لِي مَعْبُودٌ سِوَاهُ؛
    وَالْدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى:
    الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ رَبِّ الْعَالَمِينَ

    فَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ: مَا الْأُصُولُ الْثَّلَاثَةُ الْتِّي يَجِبُ عَلَى\
    الْإِنْسَانِ مَعْرِفَتُهَا؟
    So if it is said to you: What are the three principles which a person must know?
    فَقُلْ: مَعْرِفَةُ الْعَبْدِ رَبَّهُ، وَدِينِهُ، وَنَبِيَّهُ مُحَمَّدً
    then say the servants knowledge of His Lord

    -Why he presented the issue in Q & A format?
    -He also started with a general statement on the three principles then went specific.

    -So if it is said to youفَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ:
    Why he left out the questioner?

    -لثَّلاثَةُ THE three

    التِّي يَجِبُ which a person "must" know

    مَعْرِفَتُهَا
    -The method to attain ma3rifah he skipped.
    -Ma3rifah includes belief and action.
    -Ma3rifah means knowing after ignorance so the word ma3rifah can be used to describe human knowledge not Allah's SWT
    -ma3rifah is "usually" in the context of matters vilifed in the koran - not always.

    فَقُلْ : مَعْرِفَةُ العَبْدِ رَبَّهُ
    -Firm knowledge and belief
    -Types of servants

    رَبَّهُ
    Are we going to be tested about lordship (Rububiyyah) and not worship (Uluhiyyah) in the grave?

    وَدِينِهُ ، وَنَبِيَّهُ مُحَمَّدًا
    Religion and his messenger

    فَإِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ : مَنْ رَبُّكَ
    So if it is said to you: 'Who is your Lord?' Then say: 'My Lord is Allaah,
    -(ف is f of explanation الفصيحة
    -Don't disdain the belief in this simple question
    -Definition of Rab
    -Elaborating more on the issue of 'Are we going to be tested about lordship (Rububiyyah) and not worship (Uluhiyyah) in the grave?'
    2 ways scholars included Uluhiyyah under Rubuiyyah

    فَقُلْ : رَبِّيَ اللَّهُ الَّذِي رَبَّانِي وَرَبَّى جَمِيعَ العَالَمِينَ بِنِعَمِهِ
    SAY: 'My Lord is Allaah, who has nurtured me and all of creation with His favors and blessings,

    وَهُوَ مَعْبُودِي
    He is the one whom I worship!
    After establishing the foundation of Rubuiyyah in the question he mentioned Uluhiyyah to show it's included in the question.

    لَيْسَ لِي مَعْبُودٌ سِوَاهُ
    and there is no other whom I worship besides Him
    -He used nafy and ithbaat (affirming only lord and denying all others besides him)

    Outline:
    وَأَعْظَمُ مَا أَمَرَ الْلَّهُ بِهِ الْتَّوْحِيدُ، وَهُوَ: إِفْرَادُ الْلَّهِ بِالْعِبَادَةِ.
    And the greatest of all that Allaah has commanded is Tawheed, which is to single out Allaah with all worship.

    -Proof on Tawheed being the most important matter.

    -Definition of Taweed.

    -Definition of Aqeedah

    -Tawheed is to affirm (ithbaat) and deny (nafy)

    وَأَعْظَمُ مَا نَهَى عَنْهُ الْشِّرْكُ،
    the worst and most serious matter that Allaah prohibited and forbade
    is Shirk (associating partners with him).

    وَالْدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى: وَاعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَلاَ تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئاً [النساء:36].
    "Worship Allaah alone, making all worship purely for Him, and do not associate anything in worship along with Him."

    -Definition of Shirk

    -Types of Duaa
    Duaa of invoking دعاء المسألة
    Duaa of worship دعاء العباده

    -Many facts with proof on how Tawheed/Shirk are the most essential matters.

    -Detailed Tafseer of the verse the author used as proof
    وَالدَّلِيلُ قَوْلُهُ تَعَالَى : ﴿ وَاعْبُدُوا اللَّهَ وَلاَ تُشْرِكُوا بِهِ شَيْئاً ﴾ [ النساء

    -إِذَا قِيلَ لَكَ: مَا الْأُصُولُ الْثَّلَاثَةُ
    الْتِّي يَجِبُ عَلَى الْإِنْسَانِ مَعْرِفَتُهَا؟
    فَقُلْ: مَعْرِفَةُ الْعَبْدِ رَبَّهُ، وَدِينِهُ، وَنَبِيَّهُ مُحَمَّدًا .
    If you are asked what the the three principles that every Muslim must know.
    Say: It's to know your lord, your religion and your messenger صلى الله عليه وسلم

    -Definition of Usool (principle)

    -Why did the author initiate this matter in a question format rather than directly stating it?

    -The first hurdle in going to -to the life after- phase is one on his deathbed saying la ilah illa Allaah.
    The second main hurdle (and first in the life after) is the test in the grave.
    Both hurdles need the learning, knowing, believing, understanding and dying on Tawheed to overcome them.

    -The three principles in the grave are like the relationship of the heart to the body.
    Just like a body depends on a healthy heart for its health.
    Success in the akhira depends on the answers to the three principles.

    أن تعبد الله وحده، مخلصاً له الدِّين،
    making the Religion purely and sincerely for Him

    *Intro to sincerity (Ikhlas)

    *Deficiencies in Ikhlas:
    1. Entering Islam based fully on Riyaa

    2. Riyaa (insincerity) in matters if one was to leave them, they would negate his deen

    3. Riyaa in the overwhelming majority of ones deeds

    4. Riyaa in matters that are not obligatory or matters that if one was to leave them, they would not negate his deen:

    a, If one fights and resists the whispers and insincerity
    b. If one does not reject and resist the whispers and insincerity
    c. After the deed is done and completed.

    5. Leaving matters for fear of Riyaa, is it Riyaa?

    6. Doing matters because of encouragement by others or their companionship.

    7. Doing matters for Dunya or mixed (Dunya and Deen):
    a. If the percentage of sincerity for ALLAH subhanu watala is more
    b. If the percentage is equal or less (Dunya and Deen)

    *A heart to heart advice from the Shaykh on sincerity for students of knowledge.
