    Aqeedah Must Come First

    WHY MUST 'AQEEDAH COME FIRST?
    fwd'ing

    The 'aqeedah (creed) must come first because it is the foundation of the da'wah (call) of the Prophets as Allaah the Exalted said upon the tongue of every Prophet He sent to his people: "O people!
    Worship Allaah, you do not have a deity other than Him." [Soorah Hood 11:84]
    The 'aqeedah (creed) must come first because it is the decisive partition between abiding in the Fire (forever) and being saved from it.

    Have you not heard the statement of Allaah - Sublime is His Affair
    - :


    "Verily Allaah does not forgive that shirk
    (association) be made with Him,
    and He forgives whatever is less than that for
    whomever He wishes. And
    whoever commits shirk with Allaah, then he has indeed
    perpetrated a great sin." [Sooratun-Nisaa' 4:48]


    Shirk is the greatest of those things which negate Tawheed, whish is thebasis for the correctness of the correct 'aqeedah. The 'aqeedah must come first because shirk with Allaah is the greatest form of oppression as

    Allah the Exalted says:

    "Verily
    Shirk is indeed a great transgression." [Soorah Luqmaan 31:13]


    The 'aqeedah must come first because the only real cause for the differing and destruction that has come upon our Islaamic world is the purified 'aqeedah. So indeed the creed of many of the Muslims today has becomecorrupted by matters of greater shirk from making tawaaf (encircling) the graves, and seeking help from the dead people inside of them, and trying to fulfill ones needs and affairs from them. So they return to the first jaahiliyyah (pre-Islaamic times of ignorance), and it is as if they have not heard the statement of Allaah the Exalted:

    ''Verily
    those whom you call upon besides Allaah do not hear your calls. And if they
    were able to hear you, then they would not be able to answer you. And upon
    the Day of Judgement, they will disown your worship of them, and there is
    none like He who is the All-Knower." [Sooratul-Faatir 14]


    And we prohibit you from the innovations of the Soofiyyah which many of the common folk of the Muslims have erected to (such) an educational level that whole countries have institutionalized these innovations, such as the celebration of the Birthday of the Prophet. And (innovations such as) accompanying the Christians in their festivals, not to mention the deviations in dealings and manners and other than that from that which separates their countries from the Book and the
    authenticated Sunnah, with the permission of Allah, the Mighty and Majestic.
    And after this beloved brother of mine we have shown the truth of our statement that the 'aqeedah must come first.

      Achieving unity by having one Aqeedah
      is next to impossible. That would mean calling others ,who don't follow your Aqeedah, kaafirs.

      Sunnis,Salfis, deobandis, Barelvis, Nasibis, Kharjis, Shias all have diferrent Aqeedahs but have the same fundamental beliefs.

      Obviously if you adopted the Aqeedah of anyone of these groups as a 'basis for unity' that would mean that the other groups are kaafirs.

      On the other hand unity can be achieved by respecting each others' Aqeedah and by having the the same Fundamental beliefs.

      Beliefs such as

      One God, Allah
      One Quran
      One last Prophet(SAWS)
      believing in the same kalimah(la illaha illallah Muhammadun Rasoolullah)

      Wa-Salamun-Alaikum-Wa-Barakatu

            only Allah knows which is the "right" way.

            we should still strive towards Him, and Him alone.

              its true, if our Aqeedah is correct, we can end up in paradise after going to hell to purify for our sins. but if our Aqeedah is wrong!! then hell fire forever !!
