The Basic Message of Islam

Whom Should We Worship?
Authorship: Majed S. Al-Rassi
Short Link:

The basic message of Islam is the same as the message of all the previous prophets: worship Allah alone and avoid worshipping anything besides Him, whether it is a person, place or thing: directly or indirectly, secretly or openly. This basic principle of monotheism is contained in the fifth verse of the opening chapter of the Qur’an, known as ‘The Opening’: {It is You we worship and You we ask for help.} (Qur’an 1: 5)

Allah has also said: {Worship Allah and associate nothing with Him…} (Qur’an 4: 36)
{…So whoever disbelieves in tâghoot and believes in Allah has
grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it…}
(Qur’an 2: 256)25

Muhammad (blessings and peace be upon him), the last prophet, is reported to have said: <> (Bukhari and Muslim)9

9 Saheeh al-Bukhâri and Saheeh Muslim are two collections of the
authentic, documented traditions and sayings of Prophet Muhammad
(blessings and peace be upon him) . Other collections have also been used as references in this book.
All collections (referred to as hadiths (plural of (hadith)) in this text have been checked and verified by researchers. It is rare, but it does happen that a hadith is not verifiable within the timeframe of researching and editing the book. In that case, a decision is made by the editorial board whether or not to include the hadith. (Editor)
