In   the   Name   of   Allaah,   the   Most   Beneficent,   the   Most   Merciful.

 All  the  praises  and  thanks  are  for  Allaah,  the   Lord  of  all  that  exists.  And  I  bear  witness  that  none  has   the  right  to  be  worshipped  except  Allaah  alone  without   any  partner,  and  I  bear  witness  that  Muhammad  is  His   slave   and   His   Messenger,   may   the   salaah   and   salaam   be  upon  him,  his  family  and  companions.    To  proceed:       Allaah,   the   Blessed   and   Exalted,   said   in   Soorah   An-­‐ Naba’:   “The   Day   that   Ar-­Rooh   [Jibraa’eel   (Gabriel)   or   another   angel]   and   the   angels   will   stand   forth   in   rows,   they  will  not  speak  except  him  whom  the  Most  Gracious   (Allaah)  allows,  and  he  will  speak  what  is  right”  [78:38].     Whoever   reads   the   books   of   Tafseer   that   are   transmitted   and   passed   down   from   the   Companions   may   Allaah   be   pleased   with   them   and   from   those   who   followed  them  upon  goodness    -­  regarding  the  meaning   of   this   noble   verse,   will   come   to   know   the   status   of   Tawheed   in   the   hearts   of   the   Companions   may   Allaah   be   pleased   with   them,   their   great   concern   for   it,   and   attention  to  its  rank.  It  (The  Tawheed)  is  certainly  the   greatest  of  the  goals  and  the  most  sublime  of  them.     It   has   been   transmitted   from   more   than   one   of   the   Companions  and  the  Tabi`een  concerning  the  meaning   of  His  saying:  “...and  he  will  speak  what  is  right”  [78:38],   that   it   is,   “He   will   say:   ‘Laa   Ilaaha   Illallaah   (None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except   Allaah).’”   And   they   said   that   it   (None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except  Allaah)  is  the  ultimate  truth,  and  the  foundation   upon   which   the   religion   of   Allaah,   the   Blessed   and   Exalted,  is  established.         There   is   nothing   correct   except   what   is   built   upon   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except   Allaah.”   Every   action   built   upon   other   than   this   foundation   is   incorrect  and  rejected  because  it  is  not  standing  upon   its  foundation  and  its  pillar  without  which  there  is  no   standing   for   it   except   upon   it.   The   religion   of   Allaah   stands   upon   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except  Allaah”,  and  it  is  to  the  religion  like  the  roots  to   the   trees   and   the   base   to   the   buildings,   “See   you   not   how   Allaah   sets   forth   a   parable?   A   goodly   word   as   a   goodly  tree,  whose  root  is  firmly  fixed,  and  its  branches   (reach)  to  the  sky  (i.e.  very  high)”  [14:24].      

Therefore,   in   this   religion,   the   word   of   Tawheed   (None   has  the  right  to  be  worshipped  except  Allaah)  equals  to   the   principle   upon   which   the   religion   of   Allaah,   the   Most  High,  is  established.       And   in   the   saying   of   Allaah,   the   Most   High:   “The   Day   that   Ar-­Rooh   [Jibraa’eel   (Gabriel)   or   another   angel]   and   the   angels   will   stand   forth   in   rows,   they   will   not   speak   except   him   whom   the   Most   Gracious   (Allaah)   allows,   and   he   will   speak   what   is   right”   [78:38],   the   intercessors   are   mentioned,   and   from   amongst   them   are  the  angels  –  the  angels  of  the  Most  Merciful  –  they   do   not   speak   with   Allaah,   the   Most   High,   about   the   intercession   while   the   angels   that   intercede   are   many   as   the   saying   of   Allaah,   the   Exalted,   points   to   it:   “And   there   are   many   angels   in   the   heavens,   whose   intercession   will   avail   nothing   except   after   Allaah   has   given   leave   for   whom   He   wills   and   is   pleased   with”   [53:26].       And   what   came   in   this   verse   is   completely   similar   to   what  came  in  the  verse  of  Soorah  An-­‐Naba’  mentioning   the   two   conditions   of   acceptance   of   the   intercession.   And  it  is  not  accepted  except  with  two  conditions  as  He   says:   “And  there  are  many  angels  in  the  heavens,  whose   intercession   will   avail   nothing   except   after   Allaah   has   given   leave   for   whom   He   wills   and   is   pleased   with”   [53:26],   the   permission   of   Allaah   for   the   intercessor   and  pleasure  of  Allaah  for  whom  intercession  is  done.       Therefore,   there   is   no   intercession   with   Allaah   except   with   these   two:   the   permission   of   Allaah,   the   Most   High,   for   the   intercessors,   and   the   pleasure   of   Him,   the   Exalted,   for   whom   intercession   is   done.   And   similar   this  is  His  saying  in  Soorah  An-­‐Naba’:  “The  Day  that  Ar-­ Rooh   [Jibraa’eel   (Gabriel)   or   another   angel]   and   the   angels   will   stand   forth   in   rows,   they   will   not   speak   except   him   whom   the   Most   Gracious   (Allaah)   allows,   and  he  will  speak  what  is  right”  [78:38],  (It  is  the  proof   for)   His  pleasure  for  whom  intercession  is  done  in  his   correct  saying,  and  the  foundation  of  correctness  is  the   Tawheed,  and  there  is  no  correctness  except  by  it,  and   there  is  no  standing  for  the  religion  except  upon  it.       Similar   to   this   also   is   the   explanation   of   the   Salaf   for   the   saying   of   Allaah,   the   Most   High:   “None   shall   have   the  power  of  intercession,  but  such  a  one  as  has  received   permission   (or   promise)   from   the   Most   Gracious  

(Allaah)”   [19:87].   More   than   one   (of   them)   said:   the   promise   (is):   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except  Allaah.”       And  the  explanation  of  the  promise  and  the  truth  with   “None  has  the  right  to  be  worshipped  except  Allaah,”  is   the   best   and   most   excellent   explanation,   and   its   evidences   are   the   status   of   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped  except  Allaah,”  and  the  status  of  Tawheed   with   the   Companions   may   Allah   be   pleased   with   them.   Also,   it   is   the   foundation   of   this   religion   beside   which   there  is  no  standing  for  the  religion  except  upon  it.     Hence,  whoever  does  not  come  on  the  Day  of  Standing   with   Tawheed   is   free   from   the   promise.   Additionally,   he   is   not   from   the   people   of   the   truth.   As   a   result,   he   will   not   attain   intercession   regardless   whatever   was   his  worship  as  He,  the  Most  High,  said:   “(It  will  be)  the   Day   when   no   person  shall   have  power  (to  do  anything)   for  another,  and  the  Decision,  that  Day,  will  be  (wholly)   with  Allaah”  [82:19].       The  verse  comprises  of  three  indefinite  nouns  from  the   context   of   denial   and   all   of   them   refer   to   generalization;   because   when   the   indefinite   noun   comes  from  the  context  of  condition  or  prohibition  or   negation,   they   refer   to   the   generalization,   “when   no   person   shall   have   power,”   meaning   a   person   whatever   greatness  his  standing  is  and  whatever  high  his  statues   is,   “for   another,”   also   regardless   how   much   he   loved   that  for  him,  “to  do  anything,”  even  if  something  simple   and   even   if   something   small,   “and   the   Decision,   that   Day,  will  be  (wholly)  with  Allaah,”   the  decision  is  in  His   hand.   There   is   no   intercession   with   Allaah,   the   Most   High,   except   with   permission   from   Him   for   the   intercessor,  and  pleasure  from  Him,  the  Most  High,  for   whom  intercession  is  done.       This   understanding   clarifies   the   verse   –   the   understanding   of   the   Companions   may   Allaah   be   pleased   with   them   for   the   verse.   The   hadith   of   Abi   Hurayrah   may   Allaah   be   pleased   with   him   –   in   the   Saheeh   Al-­‐Bukhaariyy   (#   99):   that   he   said   to   the   Prophet   may   the   salaah   and   salaam   be   upon   him:   “Who   is  the  happiest  person  with  intercession  on  the  day  of   Standing?”   He   said:  “Whoever   said   none   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except   Allaah   sincerely   from   his   heart.”   Subsequently,   whoever   comes   with   Tawheed   on   the  

Day   of   Standing,   and   sincerity   and   actualization   of   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except   Allaah,”   then  he  has  succeeded  with  the  pleasure  of  Allaah,  the   Most   High,   and   he   benefited   from   the   intercession   of   the   intercessors   from   the   Prophets,   angels,   and   other   than   them   whoever   Allaah   has   given   permission   for   intercession  for  them.  Because,  “None  has  the  right  to   be  worshipped  except  Allaah”  is  the  foundation  of  the   religion.       From   the   greatest   of   misfortunes   and   calamities   from   (those)   affiliated   to   Islaam   and   belonging   to   it,   is   that   their  Tawheed  of  Allaah,  the  Most  High,  was  made  lost   by  the  leaders  of  misguidance  and  callers  of  falsehood   in   the   intercession   under   the   dangerous   concepts   regarding   the   intercession.   Therefore,   they   perform   major  shirk  (polytheistic)  practices  and  false  devotions   to   other   than   Allaah,   the   Blessed   and   the   Most   High.   And   if   it   is   said   to   them:   What   are   you   doing?   They   would   way:   We   are   asking   for   intercession,   and   we   seek  intercession  from  them.       ‘And   they   worship   besides   Allaah   things   that   harm   them   not,   nor   profit   them,   and   they   say:   “These   are   our   intercessors  with  Allaah”’  [10:18],   they  perform  acts  of   worship,   directing   them   to   other   than   Allaah,   the   Blessed   and   the   Most   High,   and   if   they   are   asked   about   that   they   would   say:   They   are   our   intercessors,   they   intercede  for  us  with  Allaah,  the  Blessed  and  the  Most   High.   And   this   is   the   most   false   of   falsehoods   and   the   most   misguided   of   misguidance   and   the   vilest   of   it   without  exception.         And   definitely   in   this   great   position,   which   is   the   greatest   of   the   positions   and   the   most   excellent   of   them,   comes   the   task   of   the   beneficial   students   of   knowledge   and   callers   to   Allaah,   the   Blessed   and   the   Most  High,  the  reformers  to  rectify  these  notions.         Even   if   the   inspector   inspects   them   and   the   examiner   examines   some   of   his   relatives   from   the   father,   or   mother,   or   uncle   (from   mother   side),   or   uncle   (from   father   side)   or   other   than   them,   he   perhaps   would   find   that  similar  to  these  hidden  falsehoods  has  entered  in   some   of   them,   from   that   the   responsibility   and   the   trust   becomes   great   to   investigate   this   obligation   as   an   advice  to  the  people;  as  an  advice  to  the  father,  mother,   uncle   (from   father   side),   uncle   (from   mother   side),  

brother,   relative,   neighbor   in   explaining   this   foundation,   which   is   the   greatest   foundation   in   asserting   the   Tawheed   and   the   meaning   of   the   word,   “None   has   the   right   to   be   worshipped   except   Allaah,”   and   the   desire   of   the   Qur’aanic   verses   and   the   Prophetic   ahadeeth   that   explain   the   Tawheed   and   clarify   its   meaning   to   remove   these   from   the   false   notions   that   reached   them   by   way   of   the   misguided   callers.   He   (The   Prophet)   may   the   salaah   and   the   salaam  be  upon  him   said:   “What  I  fear  the  most  for  my   nation  is  the  misguided  leaders”  [Assahihah  #  1582].     And   I   mention   one   more   time,   I   spoke   to   a   man   from   one   of   the   countries   about   this   topic   –   I   heard   him   calling   on   the   Prophet   may   the   salaah   and   the   salaam   be   upon   him   instead   of   Allaah.   So,   when   I   finished   mentioning   the   clear   verses   and   ahadeeth   on   this   matter   and   that   the   supplication   is   an   act   of   worship   must  not  be  directed  to  (anything/anyone)  but  Allaah,   the   Most   High,   he   said   to   me:   no   one   told   me   such   speech.  Thus,  it  shows  that  they  are  very  near  to  good,   and   enthusiastic   for   it,   eager   for   the   favor   of   Allaah,   and   in   achieving   it   and   they   hope   for   His   Paradise,   and   fear   His   punishment;   but   the   misguided   leaders   entered  upon  them  with  doubts  and  corrupted  in  them   what  they  wished.       The  summary  of  the  speech:  the  responsibility  is  great,   and  the  obligation  is  huge,  may  Allaah  aid  you  all,  grant   you   success,   straighten   your   steps,   guide   us   and   you   to   the   truth   in   saying,   and   steadfastness   in   action,   guide   us   to   Him   (upon)   straight   path,   and   rectify   for   us   all   our   affairs.   Indeed   He,   the   Blessed,   the   Most   High,   is   the   Oft-­‐Forgiving,   Most   Merciful,   and   Most   Generous.
