Wa Alaykum Salaam wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatahu

May Allaah reward the sister for her question. I am your brother in Islām, and insha Allaah it is more appropriate for you to refer to me as brother. Insha Allaah in a future post we can address the correct usage of the word ‘Shaykh’.

Alhamdu lillaah, we posed the following question to Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Abdul Wahhaab al-Aqeel (may Allaah preserve him), a professor at the Islamic University of Madinah:

When enjoining the good or forbidding the evil is it a prerequisite to know the proof and be able to recall it at that exact moment in time, or is it sufficient to know that this matter is evil or good without recalling the exact proof?

“It is not a prerequisite for the one who is enjoining the good or forbidding the evil to recall the exact evidence for what he is enjoining or what he is forbidding. It is sufficient if he is certain that this affair which he is enjoining is good that the person should perform or that the affair which he is forbidding is evil that the person should abstain from. This is contrary to the teacher and caller as they should both know the issues along with the evidences, so that they can call to Allaah upon knowledge.”

I hope that this sheds light upon the matter for you.

Shaykh al-Islām Muhammad Ibn ‘Abdil Wahhaab (may Allaah have mercy upon him) said:

The proof for Fear is the Saying of Allaah, the Most High:

“So fear them not, but fear Me, if you are (true) believers.” (Aal-'Imrān: 175)

1. Why has the Shaykh mentioned this verse?

i. To establish that fear is a form of worship. “The proof to establish that Fear is a form of worship is…”

ii. If it is established that this is a form of worship, then general evidences can be quoted to establish that whoever directs any of these types of worship to other than Allaah is a mushrik (polytheist). For example:

“And whoever invokes (or worships) besides Allaah any other god, for which he has no proof, then his reckoning is only with his Lord. Surely! The disbelievers will not be successful.” (Al-Mu’minoon: 117)

A specific evidence may also be used to prove that directing this particular type of worship to other than Allaah is Shirk. An example of this will be mentioned below.

If the student of knowledge is able to provide both general and specific texts it solidifies their argument and makes it significantly stronger and clearer.

2. What is worship?

Shaykh al-Islām Ibn Taymiyyah stated:

“Worship is a comprehensive term covering everything that Allaah loves and is pleased with whether sayings or actions, outward and inward.”

This definition is quite simple to use, as we will see.

3. How do we know that Allaah loves and is pleased with a saying or action?

We know that Allaah loves and is pleased with an action or a saying if it is something that He has commanded or if we have been informed by way of revelation that Allaah loves and is pleased with this.

4. A proof that fear is worship:

“So fear them not, but fear Me…”

Here, Allaah commands us to fear Him. Therefore, if Allaah commands us to fear Him, then this means that Allaah loves this and if Allaah loves something then it is considered worship.

“…If you are (true) believers.”

This indicates that it is obligatory to single Allaah out with this type of fear as Allaah made it a condition of faith that we have this fear of him alone. So directing this form of worship to other than Allaah is Shirk.

Questions:

1. Explain how it is established from the verse mentioned by the Shaykh that ar-Rajaa (Hope) is worship?

2. Explain how it is established from the verse mentioned by the Shaykh that Nadhr (Making a vow) is worship?

3. Explain how it is established from the verses mentioned by the Shaykh that Tawakkul (Trust and Reliance) is worship?
