Description from the publisher:
The pristine essence of Islamic belief is expressed in the Arabic term Tawheed. For Muslims, this term represents the concept of Oneness in reference to Allah (God). This concept is supposedly common to all monotheistic religions but in nearly all of them it has been inevitably and inextricably compromised. Judaism and Christianity have been the arenas for discussion and debate on the Nature of God especially in His relationship to prophets, messengers and for the Jews, people. However Islam stresses an absolutely uncompromising belief in the Oneness of Allah.
Ibrahim Hussain, working almost exclusively within the primary sources of Islam, presents in this book a succinct and profound statement concerning Tawheed and its antithesis, Shirk. He lucidly presents the subtle ways in which Shirk may first appear. The apparent piety and innocence which may surround the introduction of this concept and it practice are exposed as forces which can immobilize nations and negate the work of those warners raised from among us by Allah.
