Syahadah Sentence – Third Part
Today many of moslem people are actually having aspiration to build an Islamic caliphate in Indonesia, whether it is exressed openly or secretly. There are moslem people who fight for it through social movements, mass movements, political movements or even fight for it through terrorism, they all fight for it in order to realize their aspiration to build an Islamic caliphate in Indonesia.
If we look back, this kind of intention was come from their interpretation of the Syahadah sentence which then creating the concept of tawheed Rubbubiyah, tawheed Uluhiyah and tawheed Asma’ wa Shifat. Based on these concepts then some people must rulu the other people to live under the controlled power so they will be obedient toward Islamic Syariah rule.
Things like these are really an unconscioused mistake. Where that mistake is truly come from? It was truly that kind of mistake come from their mistake in understanding the Syahadah sentence. The mistake lies on the absent of Function and Role of Allah swt in controlling and giving guidances to human.
Because they do not understand how to get Guidance from Allah swt, so then they make their own interpretation and understanding on Syahadah sentence. According to their mind then the Syahadah sentence can be interpreted toward the concept of tawheed Rubbubiyah, tawheed Uluhiyah and tawheed Asma’ wa Shifat.
Tawheed Rububiyah is to single out Allah alone in His actions, with the belief that He is the only Creator of all the creation. Tawheed al-uluhiyyah is to single out Allah alone (in worship) by the actions of the slaves which they do in a legislated manner in order to seek nearness to Him, such as supplication, vowing, sacrifice, hope, fear, trust, awe, dread and turning in repentance. This type of tawheed was the essence of the call of the messengers, from the first to the last of them. Tawheed Al-Asmaa was-Sifaat is to single out Allaah alone with what He has named Himself with or described Himself with in His Book or upon the tongue of His Messenger, Muhammad saw.
Where does the mistake of tawheed Rubbubiyah, tawheed Uluhiyah and tawheed Asma’ wa Shifat lies? The main mistake lies that those concepts are actually created by human based on his mind and his interpretation on the proposition. Not a concept which was based from the Guidance from Allah swt directly. Whereas the one who is responsible to clarify all of the propositions is Allah swt, not human.
ثُمَّ إِنَّ عَلَيْنَا بَيَانَهُ
“Then upon Us is its clarification [to you].” (QS 75:19)
When Allah swt revealed the Syahadah sentence, what kind of faith and belief is actually expected by Allah swt? They all do not know the answer, because they did not aware and admit a kind of Guidance from Allah swt outside of the existing holy books. What they admit is only their propositions dan their understanding of the propositions. Those are really the root cause of any kind of mistakes and even heresy which happened to the faith and belief of some moslem people today.
So based on the Syahadah sentence, there are a fraction of moslem people who has faith and belief based on the Guidance from Allah swt, and also there are a fraction of moslem people who has faith and belief based on their understanding and interpretation on the propositions.
On the second thought of tawheed, where the mistake is actually lied? The understanding and interpretation of human mind is absolutely limited, so then what can be created by them will not be Haq. Even we found that most of the human gunderstanding and interpretation are totally wrong and a mistake.
Insha Allah at the next article we will dig deeper into the Syahadah sentence: what kind of faith and belief which is actually expected by Allah swt from the Syahadah sentence? The Most Righteous Allah and The Almight Allah. (AK/ST)
