Q: What is the meaning of Tawhid-ul-Rububiyyah and Tawhid-ul-Uluhiyyah?

A: The meaning of Tawhid-ul-Rububiyyah (Oneness of Allah’s Lordship) is the ascription of all Acts of Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He) to none but Him Alone, such as: creation, bringing into being, providing sustenance, giving life, and causing death.

 

The meaning of Tawhid-ul-Uluhiyyah (Oneness of Worship) is the dedication of all acts of the servants to none but Allah Alone, such as: Dua' (supplication), asking help, seeking refuge, fear, hope, reliance and all other forms ofIbadah (worship).

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet, his family, and Companions.

Is the religion one is born into the true one?

Adapted from: www.alifta.org

 

Question : Is the religion one is born into the true one? Answer: Every human is born in a state of Fitrah (divinely endowed natural disposition of monotheism/Islam). The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: Every newborn is born in a state of Fitrah. Its parents then make it a Jew, a Christian, or a Magian. (Agreed upon by Imams Al-Bukhari and Muslim from the Hadith of Abu Hurayrah, may Allah be pleased with him) However, Fitrah alone is not enough to know the details of Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah/monotheism) and how to worship Allah (Glorified and Exalted be He). It is incumbent to learn and try to become versed in religion; to follow and obey the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) who conveyed all details that the servants need about religion and Ibadah (worship).This is the way a Muslim can know theIbadah for which Allah created humanity. Allah (Glorified be He) says: And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone). May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions.

What does Islam mean?

Adapted from: www.alifta.org

 Question: Religions are usually named after their prophets, but Islam does not follow such rule, so what is the meaning of the word “Islam”?

Answer: Islam is submission to Allah through Tawhid (belief in the Oneness of Allah/ monotheism), complying to Him through obedience, and disavowal of Shirk (associating others with Allah in His Divinity or worship) and its people.

No religion is known to be named after its prophet with the exception of the religion of the Christians, It was named after Christ, the son of Maryam (Mary), peace be upon them, after the religion had been distorted. This name is totally wrong. But every religion can be attributed to its prophet; we can say: “The religion of Musa (Moses, peace be upon him), the religion of `Eisa (Jesus, peace be upon him) and the religion of Muhammad (peace be upon him),” in the same way we can say: “Islam is the religion of such and such a person” and so on.

May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and Companions.

Who ever wears silk and drinks khamr in this life, will it be forbidden from him in the Hereafter?

Question: This questioner asks: Who ever wears silk in this dunya and consumes khamr (wine or intoxicants) in this dunya, it has been said that he will not wear silk nor drink khamr in Paradise. Is this something permanent or he is cut off (from them) in the beginning only?

Answer: Allaah knows best. This is for the one who does not repent. It is apparent that it is for the one who does not repent. Whoever repents, Allaah forgives him. But the one who does not repent, and he persists upon this (these sins) until he dies, it is known that he will not dwell in the Hellfire forever. And if he is punished, then it is a must that he will come out (of the Hellfire). And when he enters Paradise, will he or will he not drink khamr? Concerning this there are some statements of the Scholars. Some of the Scholars have said that he will not desire it nor will he drink it. And some of them have said the other than that. And Allaah knows best. But the Paradise, whoever enters it, then for him is honor. For them in Paradise is what their souls desire and what is pleasing to their eyes. Yes.
