Class 4
‘Etiquette – Muslim’s required Etiquette with Allah’


The first and foremost required Etiquette from a Muslim is to Know Allah, His Rights & The Muslim’s Etiquettes with Him S.W.T. So In Sha Allah we start the course with Knowing Allah and His Rights. Allaah is the Arabic word for “one God”, the same as Eloh in Aramaic. Allaah is not the God of Muslims only. He is God of all creations, because He is their Creator and Sustainer.

Knowing Allah

[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.” Sahih Muslim and Bukhari 8:419, We studied the names in our Tawheed class.
