TAWHEED – QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
MODULE TITLE: THERE IS NOTHING LIKE HIMQUESTION 0
What is the meaning of Tawheed?
ANSWER
Linguistically in Arabic: wahh-Ha-da: to ascribe unity to something.Allah is the One & Only God worthy of worship.In Islam, the most basic and most important belief is Tawheed. This is the belief in Allah who is our only trueCreator, Master and Sustainer of the universe. He is the Lord towards whom we direct all our worship. We musttruly believe this in our hearts for us to be Muslims. It is easy to say this with our lips but its only when we believethis in our heart and act upon this that we will be successful. In the Hereafter, Allah will reward those who believein and live by this fact, with Paradise.
QUESTION 1
Even though we cannot see Him, Name two ways we know Allah exists?
ANSWER
1. By sending us Messengers (w/Miracles).Allah Azza Wa Jaal sent Prophets to speak to the nations before on His behalf with miracles. For example, thesplitting of the sea by Prophet Moosa (Alayhi Sallam). Prophet Muhammad (SallAllahu Alayhi Wasallam) was giventhe miracle of the Qur'an- No man can create an equivalent.2. By observing His Magnificent Creation.
Behold! in the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the night and the day; in the sailing of the ships through the ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah Sends down from the skies, and thelife which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth;in the change of the winds, and the clouds which they Trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth;-(Here) indeed are Signs for a people that are wise. Al-Baqarah 2:164 [CARD 1]
3. By calling Him when we are in danger.Everyone is born upon the fitrah (pure nature). As they grow up this pure nature may become deluded from thetruth. But when we face danger we go back to our fitra, and realize that He is in absolute control of our lives.
 
TAWHEED – QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
“And when affliction touches a man, he calls on Us, whether lying on his side or sitting or standing; but when Weremove his affliction from him, he passes on as though he had never called on Us on account of an affliction that touched him.” (Younus, 10:12) [CARD 2]
Note: People in time of desperate situation (E.g. near death situation) turn to Allah even if they do not prayregularly or even believe in Allah.
QUESTION 2
Name two of the three categories of Tawheed?
ANSWER 2
1.Believing that Allah is one and unique in his lordship (Ruboobiyyah)2.Believing that Allah is one and unique in his names & attributes (Asma wa Sifat)3.Believing that Allah is one and unique in his right to be worshipped. (Uloohiyyah)The first verses of the Qur'an in Al-Fatiha encompasses the three types of Tawheed above.(1) Praise be to Allah, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the Worlds (Ruboobiyyah)(2) Most Gracious, Most Merciful (Asma wa Sifat)(3) Master of the Day of Judgment. (Asma wa Sifaat)(4) Thee do we worship, and Thine aid we seek. (Uloohiyyah)(5) Show us the straight way. (Ruboobiyyah)
QUESTION 3
Why did Allah create us?
ANSWER
He created us to worship him (by serving and pleasing Him). He is our Gracious Master and we are His gratefulslaves.
