The Book of Tawhid

  The Book of Tawhid,
[A5] Hardback - 184 pages,
by Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi

Description :

Shaykh Dr.Abdalqadir says : ''We want to look at the matter of tawhid (concept of the Oneness of God) so that you have a strong understanding of it, because this is the foundation of our Deen (Religion of Islam) and it is the foundation of the tariqa (destined way) of the people who desire knowledge of Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala. Its declaration is found in Surat Ali Imran'' :

 “Allah bears witness that there is no god but Him as do the
angels and the people of knowledge upholding justice

Extract From the Preface :

Due to the interregnum, soon, Inshallah, to be brought to an end, which marks the period from which Islamic governance was interrupted, that is to say in the Mughal and Osmanli Dawlets, we, the Muslim World Community, experience Islam without its utterly necessary dimension of political command. One oddly regrettable result of this has been that we have started to take our Imams as leaders, making them into a priesthood, and allowing them to rule us like a slave population, which having no power over either war or wealth, allow themselves to be commanded in the private matters of births, marriages and deaths.

A result of this is, that in treating the Imam as an Authority, rather than that utterly replaceable figure whose noble task is to lead the salat, the members of the Jama'at have lost that dynamic relationship with the text of the Qur'an on which a vibrant Islamic community has to be founded. In our books of seerat and hadith we find that the Sahaba used to gather after Fajr, and those among them who knew some Qur'an would recite it, after which they would reflect in order to see how they could apply its guidance to the day's affairs.

It was in that spirit that we decided to hold a series of gatherings in order to give a start to this dynamic relationship between the Jama'at and the Book of Allah. In reviving this Madinan 'Amal, it was only fitting that we should begin the matter by extracting from the Qur'an itself the clear explications of Allah, glory be to Him, about Himself, that is, the knowledge of Tawhid.

Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi entered Islam with the Imam of the Qarawiyyin Mosque in Fez, Morocco, and studied under Shaykh Muhammad ibn al-Habib of Meknes and Shaykh Muhammad al-Fayturi of Beghazi.

Shaykh Dr. Abdalqadir as-Sufi has been responsible for the most far-reaching and successful Islamic Da’wa of the 20th century. He has founded mosques in England, Spain and South Africa. His writings encompass well over 20 books and many essays and articles, and he has initiated the translation and publication of numerous classical works of Islam, most notably the Muwatta of Imam Malik and Ash-Shifa of Qadi ‘Iyad.

His students, many of whom are world-renowned and respected in their own fields, have been responsible among other things for definitive translations of the Qur’an into English and Spanish.
