Muwahhid (pl. Muwahhidoon)

Muwahhid (pl. Muwahhidoon):

One who holds the correct belief in Allaah and His Names and Attributes, who worship Him alone, with everything that the correct meaning of worship requires. Not associating partners with Him in any form or fashion and who dies upon that state.


Question:


When is a deed an act of worship?


Answer:


If two aspects are present: perfect love (for Allaah) combined with perfect humility (to Him). Allaah, the Most High, says:


“But those who believe, love Allaah more (than anything else)” (al-Baqarah: 165)


And He, the Most High, said:


“Verily those who live in awe for fear of their Lord” (al-Mu’minun: 57)


Allaah, the Most High, gathered these two aspects in His saying:


“Verily, they used to hasten to good deeds, and they used to call upon Us with hope and fear, and used to humble themselves before Us” (al-Anbiyaa: 90)
