The World is for you, not you for the world!

Very strange indeed, if human pursues the world that was created for him, to the extent that it seems that he is the one created for it – protection belongs to Allah alone -, in which he slaves himself to the world with utter devotion, forcing his body and soul, sacrificing his relaxing and family time for it….to get what? He may loose it in a blink of an eye! He may go out of his home, never to return, or sleep on his bed, never to wake again, and these things happen for real.

It Will be Replaced with The Better!

It is already known that working in a vile place is forbidden in shari’a. Money from unlawful sources is a disgraced act. The brave step to take, when we’re still working at forbidden place is to resign from that post. There’s no other choice. Likewise, we should suggest others to leave their forbidden jobs, to seek for lawful income.

Question:

Assalamualaikum Ustadz,

The Meaning of La Ilaha Illa Allah (None has the right to be worshipped but Allah)

Etymologic meaning of word ‘ilah’

The word ‘ilah’ comes from the word ‘alaha’. It is mentioned In the book titled “Ash Shihah fii Lughah” that ‘alaha’ means ” ‘abada” or worship. While in “Mukhtar Ash Shihah“‘ it is mentioned that ‘alaha-ya’lahu’ means ” ‘abada”, or worship. The word ‘ilah’ refers to the word pattern ‘fi’al’, which literally means maf’ul (object). Thus, the word ‘ilah’ means “ma’luh” or a worshipped object. (Refer to Mukhtar Ash Shihah, chapter “hamzah”, www.islamspirit.com)

the meaning of laa ilaa ha illallah

In the other reference, Al Mu’jam Al Wasith Dictionary (part 1, page no. 25), it is explained that ‘ilah’ means every thing that used to be worshipped. The plural form of it is ‘alihah’. In Arabic language, ‘ilah’ is also termed as ‘ma’bud’. Hence, the scholars interpreted the actual meaning of “Laa ilaaha illallaah (None has the right of worshipping but Allah) as “Laa ma’buda bihaqqin'” or “laa ma’buda bihaqqin illallaah” (Refer to “Syarh Tsalatul Ushul“/Explanation of The Three Foundation, author Ibn othaymeen, page no. 77)

Faith in Allah

Faith, or believe in Allah contains 4 elements (See: Syarah Ushulil Iman, page no. 13-22), which are:

First: Believe in the concrete form and existence of Allah the Exalted

The existence of Allah has long been proved by the fitra (pure character) of mankind, their intelligence, their five senses, and by shari’ah.

Faith in Allah

Evidence from fitra

Characteristically, mankind have already acknowledged the existence of the creator, the arranger, and the owner of this universe. No one deny this fact but the arrogant atheists. The Messenger of Allah -peace and blessings of Allah may be upon him-, “There is no child who is not born in a state of Fitrah, then his parents make him a Jew, or a Christian, or a Magian.” (Collected by Bukhari, in hadith no. 1292)
