Lecture: Ramadan – Reflections on Tawheed (must watch!)

Assalamu Alaikum.

Finally.

Finally what, you ask?

Finally, someone came out with a lecture entitled “Ramadan and Tawheed”.

I had already found an article entitled “Hajj and Tawheed” (check this post).

Now, all I need to do is find something on “Salah and Tawheed” and “Zakaah and Tawheed”, and I’ll be over the moon.

[If not, then I’ll just write on those topics myself, insha-Allah.]

Why is it so important? Because the last 4 pillars of Islam are different ways of implementating the first pillar of Islam, which is the statement of tawheed (worshipping Allah alone).

Sadly, many Muslims have no clue what tawheed is. They think that it is confined to knowing that there is one god.

Nope. There’s so much more to it than that.

When I was teaching my students about tawheed, one of my students asked (after seeing all the evidence for tawheed), “Why don’t they talk about this?”

Because Shaytan doesn’t want anyone to? If we know what tawheed is and we implement it, we’ll be happy in this world and we’ll get Paradise in the next. He doesn’t want that. He wants us to apply shirk (the opposite of tawheed) so that we can all be in hell with him.

Think I’m joking? Please read the story of Adam (alaihissalam) and Iblis. Then you’ll understand that the real battle going on in the world is the battle between tawheed and shirk.
