Mushrikeen And Their Shirk

External image

Ibn al-Qayyim:

Allaah the Most High cut of all means for the Mushrikeen to attach themselves to their false deities, in such an incredible way, only people with understanding will realize how amazing it is.

Because the sole reason why a Mushrik takes a false god besides Allaah and makes it their object of worship is due to their presumption that this being (idol, dead person, trees etc) can bring  them some sort of benefit.

And benefit is only gain through four types of means, these being;

FIRST: The object of worship is an Owner, and by worshipping the object it will grant you what you desire.

SECOND: The object of worship is not an Owner but rather is a partner and can still fulfill your wishes.

THIRD: The object of worship is neither an Owner nor a partner but is a helper to the Owner and can still answer your supplications.

FOURTH: The object of worship is neither an Owner nor a partner, not even a helper but only an intercessor and can thus bring you benefit in such a way.

And Allaah the Most High, refuted each of these four claims throughout the Qur’aan, one after the other, He is the only true Owner (al-Maalik) and has no partners whatsoever, nor does He have any helpers and no one can intercede on anyone’s behalf accept by His permission.

I am FREE from EVERY Muslim who settles down amongst disbelievers (Mushrikeen).

● [رواه الطبراني في الكبير ٣٨٣٦ ، صحيح]

It was narrated that ‘Abd-Allaah ibn Mughaffal رضي الله عنه said:

I heard the Messenger of Allah صلى الله عليه وسلم say:

“There will be among this ummah people who overstep the mark in purification and supplication.”

[Narrated by Abu Dawood (96) and classed as saheeh by Ibn Hajar in al-Talkhees (1/144) and by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood]

Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah رحمه الله said:

“Overstepping the mark in supplication means asking for something that the Lord will not do, such as asking Him for the status of the Prophets when he is not one of them, or asking for forgiveness for the mushrikeen and so on, or asking for that which involves disobedience to Allaah, such as asking for help in committing disbelief, evildoing and sin.”

[Majmoo’ al-Fataawa, (1/130)]

Over-stepping in Islaam:

Abd-Allaah ibn Mughaffal (may Allaah be pleased with him) said:

I heard the Messenger of Allaah صلى الله عليه وسلم say:

“There will be among this ummah people who overstep the mark in purification and supplication.”

[Narrated by Abu Dawood (96) and classed as saheeh by Ibn Hajar in al-Talkhees (1/144) and by al-Albaani in Saheeh Abi Dawood]


Shaykh al-Islam Ibn Taymiyah (may Allaah have mercy on him) said:

Overstepping the mark in supplication means asking for something that the Lord will not do, such as asking Him for the status of the Prophets when he is not one of them, or asking for forgiveness for the mushrikeen and so on, or asking for that which involves disobedience to Allaah, such as asking for help in committing disbelief, evildoing and sin.
