Kitab at-Tawheed – Fundamental Islamic Creed

Author : Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhab: “There is none worthy of worship other than Allah.” This fundamental Islamic statement of faith sums up the concept of tawheed, or perfect monotheism. That there is one and only one God is the basis of all monotheistic religion. Yet, despite the simplicity of this belief, many people who claim to believe in one divine Creator have fallen into errors which negate their testimony of faith. Back in the 12th Century H (18th Century CE), the author felt compelled to write this book because he saw Muslims who had corrupted their beliefs and actions by that with contradicted the pure monotheistic positions of Islam. He witnessed the religious veneration of historical sites and graves, supplications made for the intercession of deceased saints, belief in omens, distortions of the meaning of Allah’s names and attributes, and the use of expressions which contradict the belief in Allah’s Oneness. In an effort to purify Islam from this falsehood, the esteemed shaykh collected proofs from the Noble Qur’an and the teaching of Allah’s Messenger to explain all aspects of true monotheism. Sameh Strauch has rendered Shaykh Ibn ‘Abd al – Wahhab’s famous text into an English translation that is unique in its clarity. Each bit of textual evidence is followed immediately by an explanation of its points of benefit. Where needed for additional clarification, Strauch adds information from recognized Arabic commentaries on Kitab at-Tawheed, making this book an invaluable guide to understanding the fundamental Islamic creed.
Ibn Abbas (May Allah be pleased with him) commented upon verse of Qur’an ‘But when He gave them a Salih (good in every aspect) child, they ascribed partners to Him’: ” When Adam had sexual relation with Eve, she became pregnant. At that time Iblis (Satan) came to them and said “I am the one who caused your expulsion from Paradise. Obey me, otherwise I shall cause your child to grow two horns like a deer by which he will puncture your belly when he comes out! I will do it! I will do it!” Satan thus frightened them (Adam and Eve) and said to name the boy “Abdul-Harith;’ (slave of the earth cultivator). They (Adam and Eve) did not obey him (Satan) and a dead child was born to them.
