Class 2

‘Faith – Allah’


Who is Allaah?

Allaah is Ar-Rabb (The One Who Creates, Runs the Affairs, and Possesses Everything)

I testify there is no true God worthy of being worshipped except Allaah,

And I testify that Muhammad is Allaah’s true Slave and Messenger.

Allaah is my Rabb

Allaah is the Rabb of everything we see around and that which we do not see, like Angels and other creatures, the Jinns.

Allaah created the Angels from light, and Allaah created the Jinns from fire.

All the Angels worship Allaah, and don’t disobey him in anything.

From the Jinns, however, are those who believe in Allaah and are Muslims, but from them there are those that don’t worship Allaah, don’t believe in Him, disobey Him, do evil things, and call people to evil. Their leader is Shaytan (Satan).

Allaah created me, and Allaah created you, and all these things which we mentioned.

Allaah gave us many things, and gave all people everything they need. Allaah provided for us. Allaah gave us life, and He can take it away. Allaah gave us sight. Allaah gave us the air we breathe. Allaah made me alive, and also made all people alive. He is the one who gave them life, and Allaah can make me die. He can take my life, and He can take the life of all people.

All what we have talked about is Ruboobiyyah (Lordship).

Lordship is that Allaah is the only true Lord: He is the Creator. He takes care of everything, and everything belongs to him. This is the meaning of Tawheed which is called Tawheed of Lordship.

So if what is Tawheed of Lordship? Answer: Allaah is my Rabb, and the Rabb of everything. He created everything. He takes care of everything and He possesses everything.

Allaah is the Creator (Al-Khaliq). He created everything. He created the heavens, and the earth. Allaah created the sky that you see above you. He created seven skies above us, one above the other. He also created seven earths. We don’t see now from the skies, except one, the rest are above. We don’t see from the earths, except the one we are on.

Allaah created the night, during which we sleep. He created the daylight. He created the sun, the moon, and the stars, so many of them, and so beautiful. Allaah created the mountains, the seas, the oceans, the animals, and the trees.

Who created the apples? Who created the oranges? Who created the bananas?

Who created the flowers? “Allaah is the Creator of all things.”

When you see the sun, think who created it. It gives us heat. Many things on earth need heat.

We all need its heat. We need its light.

Think when you see the moon when it is full. How beautiful it is. It has a course to take, and the sun has a course to take.

Wonder about the huge mountains you see, wonder about the waves of the oceans, the clouds, the rain, the waterfalls, the flowers, the gardens, the desert, the sea, the moon, and the sun. Allaah is the Creator of them all. He creates, and He provides. So Allaah is Al-Khaliq (the Creator), and Ar- Razzaaq (the One who Provides). He gave us the rain, which comes from above. He gave us the food, and what we drink. He gave us the hearing, and the sight. He gave us the air we breathe, and He gave us money and wealth.

So we thank Him for all of that, and we love Him for all of that. We love Him, because He created us and gave us many things. We love Him, because He made us Muslims.

We love Allaah, and we do what He tells us to do, and we keep away from that which He told us to keep away from. We call upon Him alone. This is the meaning of worship. This is called Tawheed al-Uloohiyaah.

We love Him because He is Allaah, and because He is the Most Merciful, and the Most Just. We love Him because He has the Most Beautiful Names. He is the All-Seer, He sees everything. He is the All-Hearer, He hears everything. He is above everything, on His Throne, above the skies. He knows everything. He has the Most beautiful Face, but none is like Him, the Most High. This is Tawheed of the Names and Attributes.

We call to Him. We say “Oh Allaah” and we do not call to anyone else, or anything else other than Him.

We make Sujood (prostration) in Salah (prayer) when we put our forehead and the nose on the ground. This is called Sujood (prostration). We make Sujood (prostration) only to Allaah.

We obey Allaah, and we must not disobey Him, because Allaah loves that we obey Him, and He does not like for us to disobey Him. He rewards when we obey Him. He may punish when we disobey Him or He may forgive us if we ask His forgiveness. He loves to forgive.

The best way to know Allah is by His names and He has 99 Beautiful names.

Hadith – Sahih Muslim and Bukhari 8:419, Narrated Abu Huraira : “Allah has ninety-nine Names, i.e., one hundred minus one, and whoever ‘ahsaha’ [enumerates them, believes in them, ponders their meanings, worships Allah by them and supplicates with them, and acts by them according to one’s belief in them] will enter Paradise.”
