Lesson 1 - Part 5
And there are those from our present time that divide Tawheed into four categories so they say, Tawheed is four categories:
1. Tawheed Ar Ruboobiyyah
2. Tawheed Al Uloohiyyah
3. Tawheed Al Asmaa was Sifaat and
4. Tawheed Al Haakimiyyah.
And they base their claim upon their statement that the division of Tawheed is traditional and it is not terminated (at the three known divisions). So, there is no prohibition on adding to the three.
And it is said to this : The division is not Traditional, but indeed it returns to the Book and the Sunnah. And the salaf whenever they divided Tawheed into three divisions they extracted them from the Kitaab and the Sunnah.
As for al-Haakimiyyah, then it is truthful. It is obligatory that the rulings return to the Sharee'ah of Allah , the Exalted and Most High, but this is included in Tawheed al-Ibaadah (al-Uloohiyyah), because it is obedience to Allah, the Exalted and Most High, and the salaf did not neglect Tawheed al-Haakimiyyah because of which we need someone to come later than them and add it, but they considered it included in Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah! Because from the worshipping of Allah, the Exalted and Most High, is obedience to Him on the rulings of His sharee'ah, so it is not made a separate category. And if this was not the case, it would have been upon us to make as-Salaah (prayers) a separate category, from the categories of Tawheed, and az-Zakaah (charity required from those who fulfill certain conditions) as a category and as-Siyaam (fasting) as a category and al-Hajj (pilgrimage to the House of Allah in Makkah) as a category and all the different types of worship would have been made categories of Tawheed, and Tawheed would've had an amount of categories which will never end! And this is wrong. But all the categories of Ibaadah (worship) are included in one category and that is Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah, for verily, it gathers all of that together in itself and it prohibits the entrance of other than that.
And from them are those who add a fifth category to the fourth one and they name it ittibaa ar-Rasool (obedience to the Messenger (saw)), and this is wrong. For the obedience to the Messenger is truthful and necessary, but, obedience to the Messenger is requisite of Tawheed and because of this the shahaadah (testimony, to testity) that nothing is worthy of worship except Allah is not correct, except with the shahaadah that Muhammad (saw) is his Messenger. So a requisite of the shahaadah of Allah with Tawheed is the shahaadah for the Messenger (saw) with messengership. And this is a requisite of Tawheed, and not a separate category of Tawheed. And one who opposes at-Tawheed , he is called a Mushrik (one who associates with Allah in Tawheed) or a Kaafir (someone who is made aware of the message of Islaam but refuses to worship Allaah , a disbeliever) , and one who opposes this obedience (to the Messenger) then he becomes a Mubtadi'a (innovator).
These are the sayings of those who oppose Ahlus Sunnah, in the division of Tawheed, and they are either a Mufrit or a Mufarrit.
The Mufrit is the one who adds to the three divisions of Tawheed, and the Mufarrit is one constrains it to one category. and ignores the rest; in fact ignores the most important of them, the category which has been demanded (from the creation), and that is Tawheed al-Uloohiyyah.
As for Tawheed ar-Ruboobiyyah, so then all of the ummahs (nations) have confessed to its (truthfulness). No one denies it except the abnormal ones from the creation, who have denied it out of pride and stubbornness, despite the fact that they know this (to be the truth) in the depths of their souls. So all of the creation acknowledge that indeed Allah is the creator, the provider, the ever living that never dies, the disposer of affairs but this is not the Tawheed which has been demanded (from the creation).
