I was browsing a french salafi site and came across an amazing story which I have translated below. And to think that some say "we can teach tawheed in 10 minutes"!!!
Abu Hamza Ya'qub ibn Rex Gungadoo
Shaykh Saaleh ahl-Shaykh mentions in his explanation of kashf ash-Shubuhaat, the following story:
Shaykh-ul-Islam Muhammad ibn Abdul-Wahhaab was with his students and after having completed the study of his book 'Kitab at-Tawheed', he wished to start again the study of this book for the 3rd or 4th time.
His students said to him : "O Shaykh, we wish to study another book, a book of fiqh or hadith".
The Shaykh replied: "Why (do you wish to study another book)?".
His students: "We have in fact understood Tawheed, we want to study another science".
The Shaykh: "Wait, I shall give some thought to this".
A few days later, the shaykh came to the lesson with a troubled face. His students asked him the reason for it.
The shaykh explained that he'd come across something which angered him. His students asked what it was.
The Shaykh: "It has been related to me that the inhabitants of a house have sacrificed a rooster (for a Jinn) in front of their door. I have sent someone to confirm this affair".
Some time later, his students asked him about the affair that he had mentioned.
The Shaykh replied: "In fact, the inhabitants of this house did not sacrifice for other than Allaah, but it was someone who fornicated with his mother".
Shocked, his students exclaimed:"We seek refuge with Allaah! He fornicated with his mother? We seek refuge with Allaah! He fornicated with his mother...".
After mentioning this story, Shaykh Saleeh explained that Shaykh-ul-Islam told this story to show them that the statement "We understand Tawheed" is ignorance and is one of the greatest tricks of the Shaytaan.
In fact, they have made greater a great sin [fornicating with one's mother] than shirk which exits from Islam.
Indeed, their hearts were not angered when the shirk that exits from Islam was mentioned.
And this also happens today, when some ignorant people see great sins and are angered by them, but when they hear about Shirk al-Akbar, or see people commiting shirk like sacrificing for other than Allaah, etc. this does not move their hearts.
This proves their ignorance. It proves that they have not understood Tawheed.www.salafitalk.net
