Tawheed Basics 10
Practising black magic or sorcery (sihr in Arabic) takes a person out of Islam.




Tawheed Basics 11
There are three aspects of Tawheed of Allaah: Ruboobeyyah, Ulooheeyah  and Names and Attributes.




Tawheed Basics 12
Allaah’s Names and Attributes are taken only from the Qur’aan and/or the Sunnah.




Tawheed Basics 13
People make a lot of errors with the Names and Attributes of Allaah.




Tawheed Basics 14
The errors of Tashbeeh, Takyeef, Tahreef and Ta’teel are revisited.




Tawheed Basics 15
Do the Attributes of Allaah like Hands, Face, Anger, etc actually mean anything or are they just figures of speech?




Tawheed ul ulooheeyah 1
Why should tawheed ul uloohiyah (singling Allaah out in matters of worship) be the first thing that the Prophets called to?




What is Tawheed ur Ruboobeyah 1
His uniqueness in creating the creation, sustaining and nourishing it, controlling all that goes on it. This in Arabic is called Tawheed ur Ruboobeyah.




What is Tawheed ur Ruboobeyah 2
Muslims believe that all objects submit themselves to Him.




Worship and its categories
Tawheed ul Uloohiyah means the sole right of Allaah to have all worship directed to Him.




Management of the Universe
Is a person who believes that someone other than Allaah is managing the universe considered a Kaafir (disbeliever)?




Calling upon other than Allaah for help
Is it permissible for a man who lives among a community of people who invoke help from other than Allaah to perform Salaah (prayer) behind them?




Is seeking help from someone who is absent or dead considered an act of major Kufr (disbelief)?
Seeking help from someone who is dead or absent is considered an act of major Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship) and doing so puts the doer outside the fold of Islam.




Performing Salaah behind an Imam who seeks the help of the dead
It is not permissible to perform Salaah behind an Imam who seeks help from the dead or vows to them because he is considered a Mushrik (one who associates others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship).




Invoking the servants of Allaah's Most Beautiful Names to fulfil one's needs
Calling the servants of Allaah's Most Beautiful Names to fulfil one's needs is Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship), for it involves calling imaginary servants beside Allaah.




Asking for the help of the dead or the absent
If one calls upon a dead person for help saying: "Madad (Give me help and strength), O so-and-so!", they must be advised and warned that this is Haram (prohibited); it is even an act of Shirk (associating others with Allaah in His Divinity or worship).




Ruling on collective Dhikr as done by Soofee orders
Collective Dhikr (Remembrance of Allaah) like what is done in the Soofee orders is an act of Bid`ah (innovation in religion). It was stated that the Messenger of Allaah (peace be upon him) said: Anyone who does something in this matter of ours (the religion) that is not from it, it will be rejected.).




Supplicating to the Aawliyaa' to ward off evil and pretending to know the Ghaib
Making Du’aa' to others instead of Allaah such as Aawliyaa' (pious people) to remove harm, cure the sick, or secure a road is Shirk Akbar (major form of associating others in worship with Allaah) that takes its doer away from the realm of Islam.
