A Journey Through the World of Belief

by: Abdurraghiem Hasan Sallie

Monotheism (Tauhid)—the Oneness of God (Allah)—is the very essence of Islam, encompassing the Muslim’s core belief system.

This 377-page book explores, investigates and details the concept of Islamic monotheism: What God can and cannot be, that which is impossible and permissible on Him, His undisputed attributes and Inner-Self, how to know God, and the Universe’s genesis.

Other journeyed ideas include the question of evil, good and bad, the difference between acquisition and creation, the actions of man, and reward and punishment.

As a Faqih, Shaykh Abdurraghiem authored 30 books on various aspects of Islam such as Tauhid, Salaah, Zakah, Fasting, Hajj (from the viewpoint of all four major Schools of Thought), Maintenance and Child-care in Islam, Islamic Jurisprudence and Muslim Personal Law; including Marriage, Divorce and Inheritance. Four of his publications are endorsed by Egypt’s Al-Azhar University. These are; The Comparative Study of Inheritance in Islam (376 pages), A Journey Through the World of Belief – A Book on Tauhid / Monotheism (377 pages), The Supernatural: Fact or fiction in Islam (96 pages) and The Laws pertaining to Mosques in Islam (176 pages). Shaykh Abdurraghiem’s final book published in his lifetime took seven years of research and writing. The Evolution of Islamic Legislation Volume One is a 606-page in-depth study of the development of the Shari’ah through the first three periods in Islamic history. Volume Two covering the fourth, fifth and sixth was unfortunately not realised. Shaykh Abdurraghiem sadly did not live to see a final book – to which he painstakingly dedicated his last few years – published. This book, A Beginner Journey through the World of Islam is in its final stages of editing.

About This Book
Overview

Monotheism (Tauhid)—the Oneness of God (Allah)—is the very essence of Islam, encompassing the Muslim’s core belief system.

This 377-page book explores, investigates and details the concept of Islamic monotheism: What God can and cannot be, that which is impossible and permissible on Him, His undisputed attributes and Inner-Self, how to know God, and the Universe’s genesis.

The book further investigates why Allah’s existence is wajib, the concept of iman (faith) and what it means, how man’s actions affect his reward and retribution in this world and the after-life. Deeper universal subjects that still perplex mankind such as Qada and Qadr (fate and destiny) are also explored – from an Islamic perspective. This extensive study, which also details the historical background to the rise of certain sects in Islam and their belief systems, such as the Shia, Khawarij, Asha-‘irah and Mu’tazilites is certified and endorsed by the al-Azhar University in Cairo, Egypt, for its clarity of content.

An easy to follow glossary makes this, yet another publication by Shaikh Abdurraghiem Hasan Sallie, appealing to readers across denominations.

Excerpt

“This science is wajib (necessary) for every male and female to study. It is also the duty of every parent, teacher and spiritual guide, to ensure that children are taught this science so that they would be able to base their principles of life on the tenets of tauhid. Tauhid should be taught at the level of comprehension and perception of the child and student. Naturally, the degree of difficulty of the subject matter will be taught at the level of the individual’s mental development. This must be the most important issue in every Muslim’s life and in every Muslim home. It is more important than salah, hajj, fasting and all other forms of worship because no act of worship is accepted by Allah if we have false beliefs that result due to lack of tauhid.”
