A’laam as-Sunnah al-Manshoorah SCL110003 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 1 SCL110003 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM Version 1.0 A’laam as-Sunnah al-Manshoorah li I’tiqaad at-Taaifah an-Naajiyah al-Mansoorah – Part 3 The Propagated Signposts of the Sunnah For the Creed of the Saved and Aided Group by Al-Haafidh al-Hakamee Trans. Abul-Irbaad Abid Zargar [Q. 41] What is the proof that imaan is defined as comprising of six pillars, when considered in detail? [A. 41] The saying of the Prophet (sallallaahualaihi wasallam), when Jibreel said to him, “Inform me about imaan.” So he (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) replied, “That you believe in Allaah, His angels, His books, His messengers, the Last Day, and that you believe in al-qadr, its good and its bad.” 1 [Q. 42] What is the proof for these pillars of imaan from the Book, collectively? [A. 42] Allaah, the Most High, says, “It is not al-birr (piety, righteousness, etc.) that you turn your faces towards east and (or) west (in prayers); but al-birr is (the quality of) the one who believes in Allaah, the Last Day, the angels, the Book, the prophets.” (al-Baqarah: 177) Allaah, the Most High, says, “Verily, We have created all things with qadar.” (al-Qamar: 49) And we will mention the proof for each one separately, if Allaah wills. [Q. 43] What is the meaning of imaan in Allaah? [A. 43] It is to have firm faith, from the bottom of one’s heart in the existence of Allaah, the Most High, who has never been preceded by anyone and who will not be followed by anyone (since He is Eternal, Ever Living). 1 The hadeeth of Jibreel (alayhis salaam). Reported by al-Bukhaaree from Abu Hurayrah, Kitaab ul-Imaan, Chapter: Jibreel questioning the Prophet (sallallaahualaihi wasallam) about Islaam, Imaan and Ihsaan (1/18). Reported by Muslim from Umar ibn al-Khataab (radiallaahu anhu) in Kitaab ul-Imaan, in the first chapter (1/29).

A’laam as-Sunnah al-Manshoorah SCL110003 @ WWW.SALAFIPUBLICATIONS.COM 2 He is the First, there is nothing before Him, and He is the Last, there is nothing after Him (since He is Eternal, Ever Living), He is the Most High, there is nothing above Him, He is the hidden there is nothing below Him. The Ever-Living, the One who sustains and protects all that exists, the Self- Sufficient, He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none equal or comparable unto Him ” (al-Ikhlaas: 3-4) (And to have imaan in) His tawheed (oneness) is in His uluhiyyah (worship), His rububiyyah (Lordship) and His Asmaa was-Sifaat (Names and Attributes). [Q. 44] What is tahweed al-uluhiyyah? [A. 44] It is to single out Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, with all types of worship, inwardly and outwardly, through speech and action. And to negate worship from everything besides Allaah, no matter who or what it is. As He, the Most High, said, “And your Lord has decreed that you should worship none but Him.” (al-Israa’: 23) Allaah, the Most High, says, “Worship Allaah and join none with Him (in worship).” (an-Nisaa’: 36) Allaah, the Most High, says, “Verily! I am Allaah! La ilaaha illa ana (none has the right to be worshipped but I), so worship Me, and perform as-salaat for My remembrance.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
