by Rabee Bin Haadee Umayr al-Madkhalee
Trans. Abu Naasir Abid Zargar The Merits of the Aqeedah of Tawheed
From Ubaadah bin Saamit ( adiallaahu anhu) who said that the Messenger
(sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) said:
“Whoever testifies that none has the right to be worshipped except Allaah
alone, having no partner and that Muhammad is His slave and Messenger
and that ‘Isaa is a slave of Allaah and His Messenger and His Word which He
pronounced unto Maryam and a soul from Him (i.e. a soul from the souls
He created), and that Paradise is true and the Fire is true, then Allaah will
admit him to Paradise in accordance with his deeds”.
Reported by al-Bukhaari1, Muslim2 and Ahmad3.
The Reporter of the Hadeeth
Ubaadah bin Saamit al-Ansaari was from those who witnessed the pledge of
'Aqaba (the first and the second) with the Messenger (sallallaahu alaihi
wasallam) and also witnessed the rest of the battles with him (sallallaahu alaihi
wasallam). He was a scholar of the Qur’aan in Medinah and then in Shaam. He
died in Jerusalem in the year 32 A.H., may Allaah be pleased with him.
The Meaning of the Hadeeth
This hadeeth contains five matters. Whoever believes in them and acts upon
what is indicated in the hadeeth, inwardly and outwardly, will enter Paradise.
The First: His saying: ‘Whoever testifies that none has the right to be
worshipped alone, having no partner’ - means that he believes in Allaah with

2 SCL100002 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 1 A Treatise on the Prophetic Ahaadeeths truthfulness and certainty, recognising the oneness of Allaah the Most High,
and complete detachment from worshipping other than Him. He acts upon
that which is indicated by the testification that none has the right to be
worshipped except Allaah, such as following the commands of Allaah and
avoiding His prohibitions in speech and actions.
The Second: ‘The testification the Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah’
means that one believes firmly, without entertaining any doubt, that
Muhammad is the Messenger of Allaah. Allaah sent him to the thaqalain, the
Jinn and mankind with a comprehensive and perfect message. It includes
believing that he (sallallaahu alaihi wasallam) is the Seal of the Prophets, that
his is the final message and that he is a slave from the slaves of Allaah, who
honoured him with conveying His message to the world. So one must testify to
the truth of everything he informed us about, obey him in whatever he
commanded and avoid whatever he forbade and prohibited.
The Third: The belief that 'Isaa is one of the slaves of Allaah and one of His
messengers. It is the belief that he is not the son of fornication, as the Jews
claim, and he is not Allaah or the son of Allaah or the holy ghost, as the
Christians claim. Rather he is a slave from the slaves of Allaah, who sent him
to the Bani Israel, to call them to the worship of Allaah alone. And verily
Allaah created ‘Isaa by the word ‘Be’ in the form of the creation and he is a
soul from the souls which Allaah created:
“Verily the like of ‘Isaa with Allaah is the like of Adam, He created him from
dust then He said to him ‘be’ and he was.” [3:59]
The Fourth: ‘That Paradise is true’ - means the belief that Jannah which Allaah
has prepared for the obedient ones from His slaves is an established fact, in
existence and a reality about which there is no doubt. It is the final and eternal
abode for the believers and the followers of His Messenger.
The Fifth: ‘That the Fire is true’ - is the belief that the Fire which Allaah has
promised the disbelievers and the hypocrites is an established reality about
which there is no doubt. Allaah has prepared it for whoever disbelieves in Him,
rejects and disobeys Him.
Whoever believes in these five matters and affirms and acts upon that which is
necessary then Allaah will admit him into Paradise, even if he falls short and he
has sins, and this is due to his Tawheed and his sincerity in worshipping Allaah
