FATHUL MAJEED – An interpretation for the book of Unification Compiled by Sheikh Abdur-Rahman ben Hasan Al-Ash-Sheikh

The Book of Unification

The term book means a set of written, printed, or blank sheets bound together into a volume.  Unification is two types: Unification concerning knowledge and proof, and that is unification of Lordship, names and attributes. The second type is unification in demand and goal, and that is unification of divinity and worship.

The authority Ibn Al-Qayyim (May Allah is Mercy be upon him) has said. «As far as the unification which messengers have called for, and about which books have been sent down, is concerned, we say that it is of two types: Unification concerning knowledge and proof and unifıcation concern­ing demand and goal. The first is concerned with proving the reality of the Lord (Be He blessed and raised above), His attributes, His deeds, His names as well as His expressing Himself in His Holy Books and talking to whom­ever He wishes from among his servants.

It is also concerned with proving the universality of what He (the Exalted) has predestined and of His (the Ex­alted) wisdom; the Holy Koran has revealed this type as has been mentioned at the beginning of the Sura of Hadid, the Sura of Taha, the end of the of Hashr, the beginning of the Sura of Tanzeel As-Sajda, the beginning of the Sura of Al-Imran and the whole of the Sura of Iklas and many others.

The second type: What has been included in the Sura «Say: O ye that reject Faith!» (109: 1) and His saying,«Say, O people of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with Him; that we erect not from ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah.

If then they turn back say ye, Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to Allah’s Will).» (3 : 64). This has also been mentioned at the beginning of the Sura of Tanzeel Al-Kitab and its end, the beginning of the Sura of Mu-‘min, its middle and end; the begin­ning of the Sura of A’raf and its end, the whole of the Sura of An’am and most of the Suras of the Holy Koran include the theme of both types of uni­fication, thus testifying by the unifıcation and calling for it.

Verily, the Holy Koran has either informed about Allah (the Exalted), His names, His attributes, His deeds and sayings; it is the cognitive and in formative type; however, calling for worshipping Him (the Exalted) Alone, no partner, with Him, while rejecting al1 others is willful and is a requested unification. Thus either commanding and forbidding; requiring us to obey Allah (the Exalted) or commanding us to obey His (the Exalted) commands and proscriptions; these are the just claims and integral parts of unifıcation; the Holy Koran has informed, honoring those people who believed in unifi­cation and told us what has been done to them in the present life and how they will be honored in the Afterlife; that is the reward they are given be­cause they have believed in unifıcation; the Holy Koran has informed about polytheists and what has been done to them in the present life, that is, how they have been punished and the torture that they will pass through in the After-life.

That is the punishment for those who reject unification. The whole Holy Koran is concerned about unification and its just claims and rewards. As well it is concerned about polytheism, polytheists and their punishment.

The Sheikh of Islam has said, «Unification said by the messengers but includes the proof that Allah (the Exalted) is Alone the only God; that is by testifying that there is no God but Allah (the Exalted) by worshipping only Him (the Exalted) by depending on Him (the Exalted), Alone by remaining loyal to Him (the Exalted), by showing enmity towards His enemies, and by working only for His sake.

That includes proving what He (the Exalted) has proven for Himself through names and attributes. Allah (the Exalted) has said, «And your God is One God: There is no God but He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful». (2: 163). He (the Exalted) has also said, «Allah has said, Take not (for worship) two gods: for He is just One God: Then fear Me (and Me alone).» (16: 51). He (the Exalted) has also said, «If anyone invokes, be­sides Allah, any other god, he has no authority therefore; and his reckoning will be only with his Lord! And verily the unbelievers will fail to win through!» (2: 117). He (the Exalted) has also said, «And question Thou our apostles whom we sent before thee; did we ?ppoint any deities other than (Allah) Most Gracious, to be worshipped?» ( 43: 45).

Also, He (the Exalted) has told about ?very prophet among the pro­phets who have called on people to worship only Allah (the Exalted) with­out worshipping any partner with Him. He (the Exalted) has said, «There is for you an excellent example (to follow) in Abraham and those with him, when they said to their people, “We are clear of you and of whatever ye worship be­sides Allah: We have rejected you, and there has arisen, between us and you, enmity and hatred for ever, -unless ye believe in Allah and Him alone.» (60: 4). He (the Exalted) has also said about the polytheists, «For they, when they were told that there is no god except Allah, would puff themselves up with pride». (37: 36), and «And say, What! Shall we give up our gods for the sake ofa possessed poet?» (37: 36). There are plenty of these examples in the Holy Koran.

Unification does not mean the unification of Lordship only. That is thinking that Allah (the Exalted) Alone has created the world as those suffists think. They think that if they had proven this by evidence, they would have proven unification, and that if they had testified that and they ex­hausted themselves then they would have perished for the sake of unification.

Verily if a man acknowledges the names and the attributes that the Lord (the Exalted) deserves and He exalted Him and acknowledged that He (the Exalted) is the Creator of everything, that man would not be considered a unifier [Monotheist] unless he testified- that there is no God but Allah (the Exalted) Alone; thus he acknowledges that verily Allah Alone is the Diety who deserves to be worshipped, and he adheres to worshipping Allah (the Exalted) Alone with no partner with Him. And the «Deity» is the god who deserves to be worshipped rather than the deity in the sense of he who is able to invent.

Thus if interpreters explain «Deity» to mean who is able to invent, and it has been thought and believed that this meaning is more specifıc to describe deity, and proving this has been set as the aim of unification -as has been done by those suffists, and that is what they say after Abi-‘1 Hasan and his followers- they have never realized the reality of unification with which Allah’s Holy Messenger (May Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him) has been sent.

Verily the polythists of the Arabs acknowledged that Allah (the Exalted) Alone is the sole Creator of every thing; yet, they were polytheists. Allah (the Exalted) has said, «And most of them believe not in Allah without associating (others as partners) with Him!» (12: 106).

A group of our forefathers said, «You ask them, who is it that has created the Heavens and the earth? They say, Allah; however, they worship, another». Allah (the Exalted) has said, «Say, To whom belong the earth and all beings therein? (Say) if ye know!» They will say, «To Allah! say, «Yet will ye not re­ceive admonition?» say, «Who is the Lord of the seven Heavens, and the Lord of the Throne, (of Glory) Supreme?» They will say, (They belong) to Allah? Say, will yet not then be filled with awe? Say, who is it in whose hands is the governance of all things, – who protects (Ali), but is not protected (of any)?
