You are in: 'Aqeedah Tawheed Tawheedul-Asmaa was-Sifaat INTRODUCTION: The praise is for Allaah, we praise Him, seek His aid and ask for His forgiveness. We repent to Him and seek refuge in Allaah from the evils of our selves and from the evils of our sinful deeds. Whosoever Allaah guides, then none can misguide him; and whomsoever Allaah allows to be led astray, then there is no guide for him.

It is not possible for anyone to worship Allaah in a complete way, until he has acquired knowledge of the Names and Attributes of Allaah the Exalted, in order to worship Him upon insight ( baseerah ).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
