Prayer Time

  |      |      |   The Message of Islam:

All praises and thanks are due and belong to Allah Alone without associate nor partner. May His peace and blessings be upon our noble prophet, his household, his companions and all those who follow their path till the Day of Resurrection.

The most important type of all three types of Tawheed is Tawheed Uluhiyah. It is the essence of all Prophets’ message, and has always been the dispute between the messengers and their nations. Every messenger was sent summoning his nation,' O my nation, worship Allah, there is no deity worthy of being worshiped except Him. The messengers (peace be upon them) did not summon their nations saying, ' O my people, verily Allah is your Lord' because all nations believed in the Lordship of Allah. The scholars of Islam explained the importance of  this type of Tawheed in many of their books. Among such scholars is Imam Malik, the founder of the Malikiyah school of thought. His saying on Allah's divinity are numerous, but a few of them will be mentioned in the following:

Imam Shafi'i narrated that Imam Malik said: it is good for someone to think that the prophet(peace be upon him) taught people how to clean themselves from the ritual impurities but he did not teach them At-tauheed-l-Uluhiyyah. He (Imam Malik) then quoted the Hadith: “I have been ordered to fight against the people until they testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allah…" Siyaru Aalamu-n-Nubalah.


It is narrated from Ismaheel Ibn Abi Uways that, he asked some of our people about what Imam Malik said at his death time. They said, he testified that there is none worthy of worship except Allah, and then recited:

لِلَّهِ الْأَمْرُ مِن قَبْلُ وَمِن بَعْدُ

" With Allah is the Decision, in the past and in the Future" Q30:4. Aqeedatu Ahl-Sunnah Wal-Jaama'at.


It is also narrated that Imam Malik interpreted the word الاله)) as the one who  deserves to be worshiped alone. He then recited;


أَفَرَأَيْتَ مَنِ اتَّخَذَ إِلَٰهَهُ هَوَاهُ

" Then seest thou such a one as takes as his god his own vain desire.."
