The Importance of studying Tawheed and its Opposite

In the name of Allaah, the Beneficent, Most Merciful. May peace and blessings be upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family and companions. As for what follows;

Heartbroken Incidents at the Masjid al-Haraam, Makkah

Sheikh ‘Alee bin Yahya Haddaadi, may Allaah preserve him, states:

“Two years ago while I was performing tawaaf al-ifaadah (performed during hajj after stoning the jamarat, sacrificing and shaving the hair) some arab women passed by me and they were looking at the ka’bah saying while crying “have mercy on us O house of Allaah”, “accept from us O house of Allaah” and due to the crowdeness I wasn’t able to do anything but say “seek what you are asking from the Lord of the House” then we were seperated by the large number of people…

During this years hajj I passed by an old man and he was repeated audibly “(give us) increasement of Messenger of Allaah” so I said seek increasement from Allaah because He says:

“And the mosques are for Allaah alone so invoke not anyone along with Allaah.”[72:18]

At that he became angry and his face turned red then he said in a loud voice, “this is the loved one of Allaah, he is the leader of this nation”, so I said we love the Prophet, may peace be upon him, respect and obey him however we do not invoke him because he is not pleased with us doing this. He is the one who oreded us to supplicate to Allaah alone and prohibited us from supplicating to others. However that which I said did not benefit him and he persisted saying that statement except that he would say once “(give us) increasement O Allaah” and say the Messenger the next time.

And I saw a Saudi family some years ago while on the mountain of Safaa who saw a man wipe the rocks of Safaa and then he wipe his face and chest. So this entire family copied his actions. I gave the father the greetings and said: “Did the Messenger, may peace be upon him, do what you just did now?” He said, “by Allaah Omy son I am ignorant and I don’t know anything. However I saw this man wiping these rocks and so I did the same.”

I mentioned to him that this isn’t going to be an excuse in front of Allaah. You do not take medicine except unless the doctor tells you how much to take. Neither do you fix a car except what the mechanic tells you what you must do. And likewise, you do not take your religion except by asking the People of Knowledge, those who have studied and know the Qur’aan and Sunnah. I told him that you have a great responsibility because your whole family is following behind you. Then I supplicated for him and requested that he relay this to his family the impermissibility of seeking blessings from this mountain or any other and that it is major shirk and if one believes that it is a cause of blessings then it is considered an innovation.

These are occurences that are heartwrenching. And how can it not be and we see these individuals who are old-aged and have come close to reaching their appointed terms in this life audibly making statements of shirk thinking that they are doing something good.

These occurences obligate for the Callers to Allaah to exert all of their efforts and power in clarifying the reality of Tawheed and its opposite by all means possible, by teaching classes, giving sermons and lectures, writing books, using the media, etc.

This is better for them and the Muslim nation than focusing on politics or virtuos actions and noble manners while forgetting about Tawheed and Shirk.

Oh Callers to Allaah! Advise your nation and do not cheat them. And what is worst than a Caller to Allaah witnessing major shirk amongst his family members or his people and doesn’t warn them nor prohibit them from it. Where is this catorgory of Callers from the way of Muhammad, may peace be upon him, and the rest of the Prophets before him who confronted their people with the utmost bravery and couragousness saying:

“O my people! Worship Allaah! You have no other diety besides him…”[7:59]
