• the • settling • of • tawheed • in • this • life •

“…While living in Afghanistan, I have realized that Tawhid

cannot penetrate into the soul of the human being, nor will

it intensify and strengthen-the way it does in the fields of


This is the Tawhid, regarding which the Messenger of

ALLAH (sallallahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

“I was sent before the hour with the sword…” [1]


“…so that ALLAH is worshipped Alone with no partners

with HIM.”

So: The settling of Tawhid in this world, is done by the

sword…not by reading books, not by studying the books

of ‘Aqidah

Indeed, the Messenger of ALLAH (sallallahu `alayhe wa sallam)

taught us that Tawhid Al-Uluhiyyah-which was the reason why

he was sent ,so that Tawhid Al-Uluhiyyah can be established

in the people, and on the earth…He taught us that Tawhid

cannot be learned by study lessons…

No, it can only be brought up and raised (through Tarbiyyah)

in the souls, through confrontations in battles, and events which

take place from stances taken in the face of the Tawaghit

through sacrifices which the soul of the human puts forth…

Every time the soul of a human sacrifices something for this

Din-this Din will open up its subtle beauties for him, and it will

unveil its treasures for him.

Sayyid Qutb (rahimahuAllah) said:

“Verily, this Din, does not reveal its hidden beauties to a

cold sitting “Faqih” who does not struggle to establish the

Din upon this earth. This Din is not a cake which you can

refrigerate in your brain. Rather, this Din is only understood

through struggling to return it into the sphere of life, and

building its society once more.”

Yes…this Din…you will not grasp it, except according to

what you give for its sake…Give for its sake , then it will

give you…the rule of “Give and Take”…

Sacrifice! Then the Lord of the Worlds will open the

doors for you…

Put forth sacrifices for this Din-ALLAH (Most Glorified)

will teach you HIS Ayat and Ahadith

As a basic rule, you will not be able to understand many

Verses, except when it is a reality you are going through-

a reality of Jihad.”

[Taken from: ‘The Tawhid of Action’ by Shaikh Abdullah

Azzam (rahimahuAllah)]

[1] Imam Ahmad and Abu Dawud recorded that
`Abdullah bin `Umar (radiya Allahu Anh) said that
the Messenger of ALLAH (sallallahu `alayhe wa sallam) said:

بُعِثْتُ بِالسَّيْفِ بَيْنَ يَدَيِ السَّاعَةِ حَتْى يُعْبَدَ اللهُ وَحْدَهُ لَا شَرِيكَ لَهُ، وَجُعِلَ رِزْقِي تَحْتَ ظِلِّ رُمْحِي، وَجُعِلَ الذِّلَّةُ والصَّغَارُ عَلَى مَنْ خَالَفَ أَمْرِي، وَمَنْ تَشَبَّهَ بِقَوْمٍ فَهُوَ مِنْهُم

I was sent with the sword just before the Hour so that ALLAH
be worshipped alone without partners. My provision was
placed under the shadow of my spear, and those who defy
my order were disgraced and humiliated, and he who
imitates a people is one of them.
