20. Definition of Shirk

leave a comment »

Definitions:

Shareek→Partner

Shirk (Literal) → Sharing, partnership or associating

Shirk (Technical) → Act of assigning partners to Allah in any form

Why should we learn Shirk?

  1. Negating what is false (Shirk) and affirming what is true (Tawheed) are both important
  2. Knowledge of shirk is vital to implement Tawheed. Subtle forms of shirk can strip down Tawheed
  3. Allah will NOT forgive Shirk

(Quran Chapter 4. An Nisaa’ ayat 48)

Verily, Allaah forgives not that partners should be set up with Him In worship, but He forgives except that (anything else) to whom He pleases, and whoever sets up partners with Allaah In worship, He has indeed invented a tremendous sin.

Shirk destroys the Tawheed.
